In research for a webinar I ran last week Google Plus for Recruiters, I found that there are not too many useful tools to help recruiters source candidates on Google Plus.

Hi everyone! So, I just started a new job in April with a GREAT firm. I am now responsible for working both sides of the desk. This is my first experience with client development, so I wanted some helpful tips. I met a director of HR for a local company at a professional networking event. She told me she was looking for a corporate recruiter that has experience specific to the industry she works in. Within a day, I found her an AMAZING candidate (name blocked out of course because at that…Continue

What makes a recruiter switch firms? I mean really is it just about the possibility of earning more with another firm? Or do all recruiters want to manage large teams and then regions running a big firm?
Some of the most successful recruiters I know have stayed within a firm or started their own firm and…Continue
A picture is worth a thousand words. Cliché? Yes. True? Absolutely! Especially in terms of social media, people have so much to look at and take in (the average Facebook visit is 20 minutes), that pictures stand out and make the biggest impact because visuals are a little easier to process. For example, you can tell people how awesome your office is, but it's so much more powerful to show them your…Continue

“Yoga is almost like music in a way; there’s no end to it.” — Sting
Selling, like yoga, is almost like music as there is never an end to it, if it’s being done right. Yet, so many salespeople engage in a stop-start mentality in their sales practice.

It’s little wonder that so many salespeople are not…Continue
