Let me guess. You already are using social media to screen candidates. And you are not alone. According to a recent survey by Reppler, 91 percent of people involved in hiring decisions at their company said they do too.
The problem is that recent studies have shown that this can be a highly ineffective and, in some cases, illegal way to screen candidates, if done incorrectly. People have sued and won settlements…Continue

Next time someone someone tells you he already knows all about what you’re saying, say the following:
That’s great! How much are you doing that?
Chances are there is a gap between what someone says they know and what they’re doing with that knowledge.
The divide between knowing and doing is plaguing companies across the globe. The dangerous assumption that just because someone knows something automatically means she’s doing it keeps her from…Continue

As recruiters, we obtain SSN and other sensitive information from the job seekers we place. Is there an industry standard protocol to comply with privacy acts? We want to make sure we're not breaching security guidelines during the record keeping and sharing of hired candidates' personal information.

It was recently highlighted by Fox News that two-fifths of the workforce at the Hoover Dam will be retiring in the next 5 years. The government will need to replace about 40 workers, mostly in specialist roles, including Hydroengineers and Electricians. The skill set required for these positions is considered to be uncommon and not taught in…Continue

A significant percentage of people involved with screening and selecting job candidates fancy themselves detectives, mind-readers, psychics and psychologists. They’re almost always willing to trust their own gut. But not much else slips unscathed through the scrutiny of these trust deficient evaluators of talent.…Continue

On April 14 the Wall Street Journal ran an article about companies eliminating their HR departments. If you poll large enough population of corporate executives about the role of HR, a majority will tell you that HR is an obstacle to getting things done.

Take No Prisoners is a free weekly memo from Scott Wintrip that explores how Radical Accountability prospers companies and changes lives.

The subject of the counter offer is a very highly debated topic. If you are in a job search while currently employed and in fact entertain a new offer, it is a safe assumption that your current employer will do what it takes to keep you. And while having two companies fighting over your professional services can feel flattering, it is incumbent on you to fully understand the situation and not just take the highest offer.
This article is not written to persuade…Continue

"People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."
- Rogers Hornsby
I can't be more excited about the start of baseball season! I truly love the game and can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be on a Sunday afternoon other than the ballpark. Hope springs eternal this time of year as well, and despite a less-than-stellar start, I'm still holding out hope that my Padres might make…
Representing only 5-10% of the total sales population, consistently producing top performing sales people are extremely rare. As a result, smart companies aggressively pursue these 'diamonds in the ruff' and are consistently looking for an edge to attract the best sales people. The thing about top performing sales…Continue
Paying an employee to quit. Does it make any sense at all? Big time, and not just because Amazon says so.
Amazon offers employees at their fulfillment centers after their first year of work $2,000 if they wish to quit. That payoff climbs by $1,000 each year until it caps out at $5,000. Of course, the headline of the money-to-quit contract offered to employees is “Please Don’t Take…Continue

One of the biggest stumbling blocks that keeps recruiters from pursuing contract placement opportunities is confusion over determining the rates, particularly the hourly bill rate that is charged to the client company.
