"Great post, Lisa. Also, quite timely as I just recently had a conversation about this exact "problem"  Here's the gist of the situation: A recruiter pursued and eventually scheduled a call to "discuss an opportunity"…"

"Love this post, Lisa. Equal parts personal and insightful. The human connection and deep rhetorical nature of recruitment fascinates me, and it's a side I think unfortunately gets swept under the rug as often as not."

Heidegger? Are you kidding me? Recruiting as narrative and the power of our words.

In college I read my first Heidegger and my first Foucault and my first Audre Lorde. It was the first time I had heard of any of them. This was in the mid 80's and yes I know I am old, but you kids can stay on my lawn - I mostly like you.Heidegger, Foucault and Lorde would be a lot for any young mind to chew on, swallow and…See More

Be the Recruiter You wish to See...

Super cheesy title, right? I know. But hold on to your rotten tomato, okay? Don't pelt me with it just yet. I've been thinking about recruiting in general and my business in particular, and now more than even I understand that the business we do is a reflection of who we are. I often say, "All business - but recruiting in particular - is a contact sport." As I've gained experience, that phrase means different things. Sometimes a contact sport is bloody conquest, a war of egos and control…

What Do You Assume?

Another day another twitter discussion about how resumes are unnecessary and anyone who is anyone has a reputation and no need of a paper representation of his or her work.

I don't think that is true.  I really, really don't think that is true.  

 

 

Not captured in that…

YOU MAKE ME SICK! (said the candidate to the recruiter).

Posted on March 5, 2014 at 5:30pm 3 Comments

I like words. I probably like them too much. I spend a lot of time thinking about words and the meanings they hold. But thinking about words and their impact is not a waste of time for me as a recruiter.   So often words, either spoken or written, are all I have in my arsenal as I strive to engage and…

The Context of Content (what's a resume anyway?)

Posted on February 11, 2014 at 10:00pm 2 Comments

Recruiters will use any kind of information to find candidates.  I once literally got contact information off of a bathroom wall once and, yes, I made a placement.

We won't discuss the industry.

Recruiters seek out the people we place, and we find them anywhere they are. It is what we do -…

Thanks for the connection Lisa. Let's talk this week and figure out what we can do. I still have your number in the system unless you want me to use a different one.

Thanks for the invite, odd we've never connected before. Always good to *meet* local folks!

Yes, it's probably doomed but we can always target postings on other sites.

We only have about 6 active members. And the exchange this morning didn't earn us one extra person so we don't have much strategic depth personnel wise.
