"Becky, Totally agree. There are recruiters who are just trying to make placements with little regard for what's best for the candidate. Those recruiters don't generally stay in the business long. They also tend to have high fall-off…"

pam claughton replied to Becky Metcalf's discussion 'Asking the tough questions...'
"I disagree with you. If I'm representing a candidate, I'm working on his/her behalf to get them the best offer, not the lowest that they'll take. However, I need to know what the lowest number is so that I can convey to the client…"

"Rayanne, Great point about the counteroffer. I'll just add that you need to ask that in the pre-closing stage, but it's absolutely essential that you have discussed possibility of a counter-offer long before that point. I do it in the…"

"Becky, It will never come in lower. :) We don't have that conversation until I know what the client can do. You set yourself up for complete failure if you close them on a number higher than the offer. ~Pam Becky Metcalf said:Agree…"

pam claughton replied to Becky Metcalf's discussion 'Asking the tough questions...'
"Different approaches work for different people, and I know of other recruiters who say something similar about accepting on the candidate's behalf. To me, that's too pushy and even a little condescending, used car salesman-ish, as if you…"

pam claughton commented on Gino Conti's blog post 'Is Honesty Really Worth It?'
"Gino, Yes, you know you did the right thing. Absolutely. Imagine if you had witheld the info and the candidate discovered this after she started, she would not be happy, especially if she discovered the information had been concealed. ~Pam"

Are you in the right job for your talents? Do you

My grandfather, who was a very wise man, gave me great advice many years ago. He said that "life is too short to be miserable at your job. If you're that unhappy, it's time to go and do something else."  

Of course, there are always circumstances that…

How to Get Promoted

Posted on November 29, 2012 at 12:00pm 2 Comments

  I've been recruiting for a long time, over 18 years and it feels like I've checked a million references. One thing that comes up over and over again when talking to candidates, is their desire to get promoted. To move to the next level, take the next step to a manager or Director or VP, even CMO.

Some people seem to get promoted rapidly, no matter where they land. These are the people who spend on average 3-7 years at a company and during that time frame are promoted multiple times.…

Does focusing tightly on numbers scare recruiters away?

Posted on February 15, 2012 at 6:54am 3 Comments

 

Obviously, you have to focus on activity, and numbers, but when bringing new recruiters on and during the first few years, what balance works best when asking them to turn in numbers?

I've seen other recruiters who don't track the numbers and it's not clear if they are making the desired number of connects either,…

How to find success in recruiting

Posted on March 24, 2011 at 6:30am 13 Comments

 

Put the time in. Be a student and keep learning.

 

I was inspired to write this post after reading a blog I look forward to each morning, http://www.thesimpledollar.com/ It's a personal finance blog, written by Trent Hamm, and for him it was a hobby that turned into a full-time job. In today's post, "The Limits You Choose", he addresses how many people make excuses for not finding success by saying they just don't have the…

Pam...thanks for commenting on my first blog...I really appreciate it.  Looks like I have to work on my writing because I was trying to say that leading the witness isn't a good thing 9kind of like comedian explaining why their joke is funny after the fact)...anyways I just joined this site and like what I see.  Again - thanks for the comment.

Pam,

I think this is going to be a very good weekend. I am taking a little rest before the weekend kicks off. I am thinking about making sushi and having a little red wine.
