Take No Prisoners is a free weekly memo from Scott Wintrip that explores how Radical Accountability prospers companies and changes lives. Instead of taking people hostage with outdated, heavy-handed, and ineffective methods of management, measurement, and motivation, Radical Accountability focuses on creating an unwavering responsibility for getting what matters most done.

As someone who has been on both the agency and corporate side of recruiting, I firmly believe every recruiter should start in the agency world. The agency world is a trail-by-fire environment; you make your calls, send your emails and earn your placements or you're fired. It is a fast paced, high stress, micromanaged environment. I have nothing but respect for people who are life long agency recruiters.… Continue

A few of us non-traditional, mold-breaker, non-conformist, square pegs in a land of round holes occasionally jokingly refer to ourselves as unemployable. And, in certain ways that isn’t far from accurate.
If we look throughout history we find plenty of well-known business and leadership success stories that wouldn’t have been possible if those responsible didn’t push boundaries or shake a big stick in the direction of the status quo. Yet examples like that tend to be anomalies in… Continue

- The reason this post on THE ROLE OF PARENTHESES IN BOOLEAN SEARCHES is so amazing is that Hasan Mirza wrote the identical post that I did on my own website back in 1990. Shally Steckerl at the time identified me as the author and published it on his Arbita website at the time, and Shally did a much better job than I in putting it into a nicer format. For at least the last 6 years Hasan Mirza continues to publish as his own the exact same content. Truly amazing! John…

If you have clients who have 1099 independent contractors (ICs), you will want to make sure they are aware of the government's latest initiative to crackdown on worker misclassification.
While there are situations where paying workers on 1099 is perfectly legal, many employers abuse the classification, labeling workers who should be employees as ICs. This results in the loss of tax revenue for state and federal government agencies. The Obama administration has been particularly… Continue

One of the hardest things to do as a recruiter is to deliver on expectations. Notice that I didn’t say delivering on promises. Say this out loud: “But you promised!” Did you hear that in a child’s voice punctuated by a mini-tantrum-induced… Continue

The previous year had brought about radical changes in the recruiting industry and 2014 is all set to take those changes to a new altitude altogether. Experts reveal that the face of our careers in 2014 will be determined by the changing world economy and the ever varying needs of the job market of the world. Even if your corporate recruiting function has low resources and expects little change in the current year, you still have a moral… Continue

If you are hoping to land a job or want to keep your current job, you have to realize that your personal brand will affect a company. A wrong step could leave a company a lot of clean-up—your picture gets placed in the paper for something illegal; you guest post a controversial article; a joke on Twitter gets… Continue

Business is quite robust so far in 2014. Record-level business for me, even as a 25-year recruiter, tripling all of last year's revenues within the first 60 days. I was informed that I have a new offer coming out today, for a candidate I have known and had in my network for at least a decade, finally getting a chance to place him, and he is very excited. Another candidate for another position also successfully submitted his resignation today, and set his start… Continue

If you’re a sceptic of recruitment agencies, chances are it is due to a bad experience where you’ve been shown a complete lack of integrity and candidate care.
The recruiter probably expressed little interest about your individual requirements and deemed that your CV had enough keywords in it to send it over… Continue
