Scenario - 1 week to schedule nearly 30 interviews, gain multiple momentum steps on many requirements, and making simultaneously multiple offers, screening more candidates to keep pipelines full, all while getting ready to move your 30-40 requirement desk to the point where manageability might even be realizable. How can you do it? How do you find the elusive, hard to find, perpetual purple squirrel, or do you need to - will the candidate with those coach-able skills, and…Continue

Hiring an employee who seems to relocate on a frequent basis can be a tricky process, especially if they're the right person for the job.
Whether they jump from one job to the next for personal reasons or they move around frequently due to their spouse's career, hiring an employee on the move can…Continue

Super cheesy title, right? I know. But hold on to your rotten tomato, okay? Don't pelt me with it just yet. I've been thinking about recruiting in general and my business in particular, and now more than even I understand that the business we do is a reflection of who we are. I often say, "All business - but recruiting in particular - is a contact sport." As I've gained experience, that phrase means different things. Sometimes a contact sport is bloody conquest, a war of egos and control…Continue
There are two coffee shops in my neighborhood: a Tim Hortons and a Dunkin’ Donuts.
The prices at both are pretty much the same. The food is different - if anything I prefer Dunkin’ Donuts. And yet, I got to the Tim Hortons every…Continue

It seems to me that most recruiters would agree that Master Vendors and Managed Agency Services are not the best example of how an agency service should be delivered.
Master Vendors gain business based on price and price alone. They may succeed in convincing their customers that service will not be affected, but in my experience of feedback from returning customers, this is not the case. Managed agency services dilute customer service, and by utilising online booking systems and…Continue
Diversity in the workplace is important for a number of reasons. Some of those include having a workforce that understands and reflects your customer base or an atmosphere of different perspectives that can create innovative ideas. Diversity is also looked at by some as …Continue

As a marketer, I’ve always been fascinated by the customer service experiences that I have as a consumer and the different methods used by companies to communicate with customers. I’ve had bad experiences and great ones and it was a very good experience yesterday that I would like to share as it provides some insight…Continue
Last Thursday Linkedin announced that they are making changes to their InMail policy.
In short they are trying to reduce the amount of ineffective bulk InMails that are sent, hopefully improving the overall candidate experience which in turn should result in improved response rates for recruiters.

For many years, I’ve often pondered what separates good recruiters from great recruiters. As a staffing leader, you’re always tasked with things like employee development and building recruiter capability.

We’ve all been in a situation like that at one point or another. You can’t connect on skype, the video interviewing platform doesn’t work or even something as simple as not knowing if you’re calling the hiring manager or they’re calling you. The company…Continue

Larry Page and Sergey Brin were both high-achieving students, as both earned master’s degrees from Stanford before they co-founded Google.
Understandably, when they started hiring at Google, they focused in on hiring people like them, namely people from great schools with high…Continue
The #1 mistake I see people make is to believe the Face-to-Face interview is about their specific qualifications and how they meet the requirements for the position being discussed.
In my experience, the “in-person” interview is only marginally focused in this area, and thus largely focused on your soft skills such as having a pleasing personality, ability to build relationships, strong time management and organizational skills, and of course,…Continue

I recommend my clients do both a background check and reference check of their new team member candidates. Why?
As it relates to reference checks, you would be amazed at the number of candidates who select inappropriate references such as their Aunt, girlfriend, or college roommate. Additionally, about 25% of the time my candidates give me references who provide a poor endorsement, or who never respond to the reference inquiry (a delay in…Continue

Being able to find a job that will make you feel satisfied and content starts with knowing exactly what you are looking for.

I was very fortunate to speak at the 2014 LinkedIn SourceIn event in New York last month. My topic was "I was for big data before I was against it." Everyone was awake when I was done, so I added it to my "win" column. These are the points I addressed.
# Why are recruiters doing more posting and praying than ever before?
# Who are some masters of big data?
