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.

Be the Recruiter You wish to See...

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…

Credit: Ethan

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…

Join the revolution! Don’t support the Master Vendors.

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…

How to Prepare for the Face-to-Face Interview

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,…

How to Prepare for a Successful Background Check

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…

I was for using big data in recruiting before I was against it

How to use big data in HR and recruiting

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?

We all have routines. These daily and weekly routines can be hard to break or even change.
