I've been trying to hire for numerous positions within my organization over the past 6 months and have had nothing but headaches. Posting jobs, sorting unqualified resumes, wasting tons of time and money. Someone recently introduced me to a friend that works at a new business called http://www.zerofeerecruiter.com. I checked it out and realized this was exactly what I needed. A full service recruiting business at a fraction of the cost. It… Continue

In a previous article, I wrote how it doesn’t take much to call yourself an agency recruiter. Ask anyone within industry experience and they will tell you the same thing: a phone and access to a resume database and you can start selling yourself as an agency recruiter. Unfortunately it takes a lot more than… Continue

Several years ago I walked into my favorite bookstore and was fascinated by a book on the shelf.What caught my eye was the bright orange cover and the band of duct tape across the cover. The book was Chip and Dan Heath’s first book titled “Made to Stick.” Since then I have been looking forward to reading their other works. It is no different for their newest work titled “Decisive.”
In Chapter 7 titled“Ooch”, they talk about a company which scheduled interviews for an open… Continue

There is a popular post going around LinkedIn the past few weeks that says…
As a recruiter, I have had numerous conversations with managers who have this fear. They are hesitant to bring people in with less than ideal experience with the notion of training them because they are certain that they will finish that training an then take off to work for a competitor, getting no return for… Continue

We’ve all seen them. Those annoyingly entertaining mimes who pull themselves down a sidewalk with an imaginary rope, or ride an imaginary escalator down behind a barricade. But the one they are probably the most well-known for is the imaginary box that has seemed to trap them. They can press on the walls, scream, pound their fists – but nothing penetrates that box!
If you are a HR… Continue

Summary: Although social technology advocates have been calling for the death of email for several years, it's still the dominant digital channel by which people in organizations communicate and collaborate. The role of email in our work lives should be reduced, however, both because of its own inefficiencies and the increased availability of better tools. Effective leadership is the key to… Continue

I was watching the movie The Internship (don't ask), and my big takeaway, even with my fancy degree in film, was this: how the hell did Google get a feature film for an employer branding initiative? I mean, it's not enough that they're already the… Continue

My black lab, Kingsley, is like many of his breed in that he has Squirrel Moments. He’ll be doing one thing, and then a squirrel runs across the top of the fence. Seeing this out of the corner of his eye, Kingsley runs for all he is worth, convinced that this he’ll actually catch the critter. But, alas, the squirrel is always faster and craftier, and Kingsley is left to glare and bark his fiercest of barks. Once the squirrel is out of sight, Kingsley rarely returns to what he was doing… Continue

Outwit hub has been around for a while but I thought I put together a short How To video to demonstrate how useful it is to scrape any date from the internet. In this example, I'm scrapping my Twitter followers but the same technique can be used to scrape directory sites, Google or in fact any page.
I'd be interested to hear how recruiters are using this tool and see what can be done with data found in this way.

I’ll never forget the time I was sitting opposite a client taking a brief for a new position in her team and when I asked her if she had a position description she literally scribbled a few bullet points on to a Post-It note and handed it to me across the table.
Was she… Continue

Think about your sales history. How often do you reach a goal, only to immediately start thinking of your NEXT goal? Do you take time to appreciate and celebrate each achievement, or are you already on to your next client? When you complete a task, do you look back and see all the things you could have, should have, done better or faster? …

Wouldn't it be cool if for just a few days out of each year, we could really just hit "pause" and everyone take a day off? I mean everyone; on the same day. Can you imagine it? You probably wouldn't want to. Think beyond Walmart being closed. How about no gas stations, no hotels or restaurants… Continue
