Posted on August 18, 2015 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

Best practices. You know you’ve read that teaser a gazillion times.  One place you see this phrase are on popular recruiting websites and conferences.   The REALITY is this. Recruiting is ACTUALLY more about WHO than HOW.

Remember Recruiting in the 90's. Life was easy. Life was simple. You had a fax machine, job boards, and your new computer running AOL and Windows 95 with your SPAM free email box. Then came dot com bust, and then social media and just basically upended your simple recruiting ways. It's time to join Recruiters on Facebook.

AIG Employment Contract

My first recruiting gig was on the agency side. Our CEO got fired one day because he was supposed to take the company from 15 million to 20 million in revenue.

They went to court. The CEO won a settlement and the owners paid more in the end.Today, the AIG Execs are getting taxed 90% on their bonus BUT…See More

Hi MG,
I read your post on ATS.
I have been using Alchemus www.alchemus.com or www.inetgen.net for around 6 plus months now.
I find it very efficient. They have come up with a new 7.0 version.
