Why I love recruiting

After 33 years in recruiting, this discussion has led me to take a look at why I've done this all these years and still find it fascinating.  I've earned a good income but that isn't a long term reason.  I've been successful in finding candidates to meet the needs of specific jobs, but also not a long term reason.  I've been doing it so long and probably the only thing I know how to do?  Again, not the reason since I had a successful medical career before recruiting.  It all comes back to just…See More

"I just love this one! Shared it with a fellow worker who spent years as a contingency recruiter = she laughed more than she has for a long time. It always pays to sit closest to the door :)"

Halloween Interview Horror Story

This actually happened on Halloween Day when I was a recruiter for a large corporation.  I had a full day of back to back interviews scheduled and was moving along at a brisk pace.  Shortly after lunch, I welcomed a candidate and escorted her to my office.  Now my office space was anything but the image most people have of a professional office.  It was more of an after-thought and consisted of my desk facing the door in a small, windowless room, with two candidate chairs in front of the desk…See More

"Elizabeth - good for you and congratulations on making that placement.  In my company I offer fair and competitive pricing for my services as well and yes, I do get a lot of the low hanging fruit that bigger companies ignore.  What they…"

"I've enjoyed reading the various comments to this post.  I've been in recruiting for 30+ years and guess I'm like "the Old Joe's" others have learned from.  Recruiting isn't easy and it isn't for…"

"Judi - very nice blog with entertaining and highly pertinent information.  I stress the same to all my clients and it amazes me still that there are job seekers that just don't have a clue."

Terry Cobb commented on Travis Yeager's blog post 'Bounty Jobs -- Wrong For Recruiters? HR! -- Nope because you’re not a car guy!'
"Yours was an interesting read and I enjoyed the tongue in cheek humor.  Actually, the information on Bounty was very interesting and I liked the different perspective.  I have 25+ years of experience in the recruiting business, both in HR…"

Terry Cobb commented on Jon Prete's blog post 'The cover letter - fugheddaboudit!'
"The cover letter (when used properly) can be an invaluable tool for the job seeker.  When trying to limit a resume to the acceptable 1-3 pages, there is often important information that is omitted.  The cover letter allows the job seeker…"

The New Year & the job search continues

I'll start off this blog with a good news/bad news scenario.  First the good news, it's a brand new year and a fresh start for all of us.  The bad news, for those involved in the frustrating world of a job search and it can appear to more of the same from the previous months of last year. The reality is that it's a fresh start both for the employer and the job seeker.  For the employers, several factors come into play that make things better than the end of the previous year.  Company budgets…See More
