There are many good reasons to reject Contingency Search in any form, but for today’s post, I’ll deal with only one reason. Quantity vs Quality. In most cases, by no fault of their own, recruiters are forced to produce poor quality work or get left in the dust by other recruiters with a quicker trigger finger. The inherent weakness of Contingency Search lies in this conundrum: The more you endeavor to vet and qualify your candidates, the less likely you…Continue
I suppose it started almost 10 years ago - when the economy was coming out of another flat line scenario - indeed when the Rome of the Innovation World - Silicon Valley even had economic troubles and when I needed to know that I personally could make a difference.

Hello again, everyone! Since the last discusson was very informative, I want to pick the brains of corporate recruiters now. Since I am an agency recruiter and new to client development, I want to know the opinions of recruiters on "the other side" of the game. I know HR and corporate recruiters are tired of being approached by one agency after another saying that they are "different" and can provide some sort of magical recruiting service that the rest cannot. When I call HR and corporate…Continue
By no means is this post meant to be a dig at the recruiting industry, nor a gripe on my career choice. My purpose of this post is to give some of the newcomers into the industry some sound advice on what to expect. When I first received the call about working for a staffing company, I had no idea this industry even existed. It was completely new to me!

It’s a hot summer day with no perceptible breeze. Lying across the way is a haphazard pile of debris, having been blown into what almost looks like a small pyramid. A spotlight of sun, the size of a small flashlight beam, suddenly appears on the pile, having been channeled by a pane of window glass. Suddenly, a burst of flame erupts as the wood, grasses, and other assorted…Continue
