As a recruiter, you sometimes may need to coach candidates on how to present themselves in the best possible light to a prospective employer. You know that this candidate is highly qualified for the position you are seeking to fill, but their resume and interviewing skills don’t show their full potential. Here’s a simple tool you can use to coach the candidate to shine.
In a recent post we discussed the difference between the old resume style and… Continue

Recruitfest is on and it's going down in Vegas this year! I haven't been to one yet but I know Jason Davis and the first thing that comes to mind is Burning Man meets recruiting.
I do know that the seed of Recruitfest was born from Jeff Hunters Talentunconference. This was a grassroots gathering of recruiting professionals and leaders. Instead of traditional presentations the focus was on learning organically from one… Continue

I wanted to ask this to the recruitingblogs audience in order to see if I get the same sort of answers I got on Linkedin. Please answer with your initial reaction here before looking at the answers I am getting there. That way we can all test to see if the answers are different since they would be unprejudiced by the previous answers.

Why is it that the most recruiters focus most of their attention on the need of their clients and give little time to the desires of the candidate? I know that the majority are taught how to take a detailed job order which will enable them to match a candidate’s skills to a vacancy and the better recruiters are competent in understanding the potential career opportunity available. Then, in my opinion, many recruiters lose the plot…. they go out of their way to sell the job vacancy to potential… Continue

This blog post is for members of RecruitingBlogs.com that run recruiting related Ning sites.
I have been thinking about this for a long time and I am in the process of some major "housecleaning"
1. If you are the administrator of a Ning network and you come to RecruitingBlogs.com
in order to build your "friend connections" so that you can then invite them to join your own network, I will ask that you put a RecruitingBlogs.com… Continue

I'm not exactly one to break my arm patting myself on the back too much, but strive to work smarter all the time. The following are some of the reasons why I feel I am a smart recruiter.
Keeping my ATS up to date keeps track of candidates, interviews, etc. This is not the area in which I work hard to be organized. I strive to make sure I have control over the flow of my day as much as possible. I keep track of when I know I am most productive. During those times I… Continue

Lost in the overwhelming passing of the new BARF
(Bovinated Asset Relief Program) bill - there's more pork in this bill than on a pig farm - was President Obama's signing
of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
. While I believe this bill is more fluff than substance - it promotes voluntary compliance with anti-discrimination laws by employers

I love the Super Bowl. I love it for the party with friends, the buffalo wings, the beer, the fact that the best in their profession get the spotlight, and I even love the game. The whole event is an American Institution. But the workaholic in me loves it as well. Our industry has a real history with the Super Bowl. Monster.com was launched into the national spotlight with Super Bowl ads. One of the great business risks and successes in history in any industry. Careerbuilder had some fantastic… Continue

Some folks enjoy Gregg Easterbrook's writing and some don't. His lens is often the contrary view, which can be tiresome (like anything) if thats his only approach. OTH its a pretty good way of looking at things (per Socrates).

(and other Assessment mavens) that circles around the idea that individual… Continue

Some quick thoughts on the really quite good - Enhance Media
's Online Recruitment - 2009 - The Year Ahead Conference.
Great turnout. With bad news aplenty in the industry, it's nice to be reminded that online recruitment advertising remains a massive opportunity (we still think at least £200+mm in the UK) with many smart people involved. Companies are still recruiting, but to a lesser degree, and there is greater pressure on them to be… Continue

Let's get straight to the point: Action is the only precursor to success!
So, here is a pithy way for you to get focus on your customer - and thereby be focussed on improving your business.
Take a leaf out of the book from Marriott: Imagine there is no desk. That's right, imagine, you no longer have a desk. What do you do? Well, how about understanding that in nearly all businesses, you do not meet new prospective buyers from behind your desk? You must get out and market,… Continue

What was the story behind Jobs.com, prior to getting purchased by Monster. Anyone got some scoop, public or private?

I can't take it anymore! What the heck are all these candidates doing? In their desperation to find the next great opportunity, they are casting their net too far, too wide. I am becoming inundated with candidates unqualified for positions I've posted. And I only have a couple of posts out there, thank goodness!
One example is "mba requirement" and tons of bachelor's candidates flood in, a software sales opportunity and suddenly retail sales candidates are applying. I do not reply if… Continue

Wow - lots of action over the last day or so for Rick P. (Jack Roth?)'s new service to sell job leads to folks. The response hasn't been good for the most part and although he did open the can of worms, it still seems like a lot of negativity for one post.
Enough of the bad.
