My logic here is that every year before now, I’ve gone on ESPN and checked the predictions from the sportscasters. I have that little bit of hope that this could be the…

Video Interviewing and Your Recruiting Strategy

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…

Back on British soil: The impact of a stronger UK economy on recruitment in the pharmaceutical industry

At the height of the economic downturn, confidence in the UK’s economy dropped. In a bid to reduce manufacturing costs and stabilise investments, many pharmaceutical companies took these processes abroad. As a consequence, some of our highly skilled, domestic labour…

Critical Thinking

I attended an excellent webinar on Critical Thinking today.  The speaker sighted some interesting statistics about how much need there is for training in Critical Thinking.  Executives view Critical Thinking as one of the most important needs for employees and there is a huge skills gap.  Higher education is not teaching / training people in critical thinking skills and college graduates are assessed by upper management as very lacking in that area.  Critical Thinking is one of the most…

Tom Petty, Blogging Copycats, and YOU

Recently, Sam Smith, a young UK crooner had to pay royalties from his hit “Stay with Me” to Tom Petty, due to similarities in the chorus to “Won’t Back Down”. This isn’t the first instance where Tom Petty, his lawyers or his fans have insisted that the rock legend was being copied by a younger musician or band. And…

A Radical Reductionist Analysis of the "Purple Squirrel" Idiom

Really?  "Purple Squirrel"?

Is that the best you can come up with to describe an 'unfindable' candidate?

I remember seeing red squirrels for the first time in 1976, in the Vienna Graveyard, while I made my pilgrimage to the tombs of Beethoven, Schoenberg, the Strausses, Schubert, and other great Viennese super-composers.  "Rock-stars", if you will, to reinvent another overused phrase.

I had never seen red squirrels, before, so I was pretty amazed with them, as there were…

Pymetrics

Silicon-Valley superstar/rockstar/billionaire Vinod Khosla (his brother is a professor at Stanford, I believe) has provided an infusion of Venture Capital to an interesting and very different career-oriented website called Pymetrics www.pymetrics.com; which actually provides some very interesting interactive tests to evaluate skills, traits, talents, etc.

Effort is the Enemy

Hiring managers typically need that empty seat filled yesterday, yet they often wait until tomorrow or a series of tomorrow’s before that happens. It is this very gap between yesterday and tomorrow that holds one of the greatest opportunities for staffing and recruiting firms.

The staffing industry can quickly elevate its reputation by more consistently providing talent on demand, right when it is needed. This not only delivers tremendous value; it is how firms can be rewarded with a…
