I couldn't get a guest today. (Two recruiters volunteered but neither could get permission from their managers). So, we just went with a round table discussion featuring the Recruiting Animal Panel and I think it went pretty well. It reminded me of the first show.…Continue

Take No Prisoners is a free weekly memo from Scott Wintrip that explores how Radical Accountability prospers companies and changes lives. Instead of taking people hostage with outdated, heavy-handed, and ineffective methods of management, measurement, and motivation, Radical Accountability focuses on creating an unwavering responsibility for getting done what matters most.
Getting from here to a more profitable there isn’t just about charting the right course; it…Continue

As a recruiter I get very close to my candidates during their job selection and application process to the point of perhaps considering them as 'friends'. I will sometimes call my candidates three times in a day - firstly to wish them luck, secondly to gain feedback and thirdly to pass on feedback. I complete reference checks and am very excited when my 'friend' accept a position and give the start date for a month later.
Occasionally I will assist with resignation tactics and of…Continue

Ever think "There just aren't any more candidates out there!"? Sooner or later, we all have been in that situation.
But how exactly do you determine it's the end of the line and there is no more talent in the pool? Is it when your job postings don't pull? Is it when résumé databases…

Leading a team can be hard work; leading a virtual team can be even harder. We all get it, telecommuting is great for the environment, it can lower stress levels in workers, increase productivity and drastically reduce costs for the organization. That being said, virtually managing a team comes with its own hardships. In order to truly reap all of the benefits of…Continue

Has your company seen a decrease in the number of qualified candidates recently? Having a career page and posting open positions to social media isn’t enough. Did you know that on average 46% of candidates rate their experience poor or very poor? Why…Continue

The three-headed watchdog for the afterlife, Cerberus, guarded the entrance to Hades. The mythical creature ensured no one entered who wasn’t qualified to do so. He assisted the god of the underworld, not the poor souls who passed by. Just the same, recruiters serve as…Continue

Like a game show where it’s anyone’s guess who’s going to win, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to predict which companies are going to buy next. At any moment in time, only 3% of companies are buying from a staffing or recruitment firm. During that same moment, another 6% are shopping, comparing candidates, prices, or contracts.
Unless you have only one customer, no one is smart enough to accurately predict, all of the time, who’s going to give the next “yes.” That’s why achieving…Continue

For as long as I remember (and in recruitment, that is a very, very long time) getting good candidates has always been about getting their attention.
Way back in the day, all newspapers were bulging with job-classified sections. Seriously, I remember the Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age job sections were way thicker than the rest of the paper combined! It was the same across the world. And…Continue

A good employer brand is earned through good behavior, and it starts from the moment the first hire is made and continues with every hire thereafter. It’s a simple process really: be kind, be mindful, and follow through. But, as with all things straightforward, most of us have a tendency to overcomplicate the process as the business grows and we somehow “forget” to keep the process real and simple.…Continue

Every recruiter knows it's bound to happen. At some point, one of your clients will hire one of your candidates without paying you. It's an age old problem in the staffing industry and many recruiters just consider it a cost of doing business.
But you may not realize just how big this problem really is. In case the title didn't give it away, these unidentified hires account for $1 billion dollars in missed placement fees…Continue
