On talent management...
"After this [talent management] conversation most HR people recognize that this is not just plumbing or automation - but something way beyond their span of control. This kind of initiative must be led, supported and driven by Sr. Management. In most cases, what happens next is that there is some more conversation and then the idea dies."

The WAR for talent is on! Great candidates have lots of choices in terms of where they go to work. We have more clients knocking on our door than we can handle. A client MUST understand how to partner with us to hire the talent they want: How do you, the company differentiate yourself once you’ve identified a great candidate? Some tips I have learned over the years:
- Get the hiring manager 100% involved. Hiring managers must…

"We see the tip of the iceberg in our own Recruitosphere. The Animal, Cheezhead, Mr. Moustache and a host of other characters signify that our online personalities are not necessarily what our friends and family see. We're all experimenting with the difference between our public and private selves while those distinctions are changing." — John Sumser.
Gee John, that is some pretty funny stuff. I cannot speak for The Animal or Cheezhead, but I don't have an online personality that… Continue

On stupid interview tricks...
"Mind games, puzzle tricks, gotcha impromptu zingers, irrelevant “IQ tests”, “moving Mount Fuji’isms and Chris Sells’isms”, sneaky hidden trapdoors of the Spolsky sort and all the usual Microsoft shenanigans are a wash. Smacks me more of Geeky Eliteisms, people cut off from the real world."

On the business of recruiting...
"Recruiting is about driving the business forward. Competitive advantage. Period. Nothing more, nothing less. It doesn’t exist to get people jobs and it doesn’t exist so that people who couldn’t get jobs being a camp counselor can make 6 figures. That means that you figure out the positions that will make or break your company and you get the perfect person for that job, and you pour your blood, sweat and tears into that, and… Continue

"I'm a little surprised that anyone would have a problem with John Sullivan's stand on aggressive recruiting tactics. In my opinion, once you've made the decision to poach another company's employees, you've already crossed the line. Other than misleading a candidate about the merits of the job, everything else a recruiter does to find… Continue

As everyone must know by now, I love the Fordyce Letter. Not many publications are worth a couple of hundred bucks a year -- but the Fordyce Letter is an exception.
Having said that, today I received my June 2007 Fordyce Letter. The new look and feel are great! The publication is thicker and contains even more great material than it did before. Now there's even MORE great material for me to struggle to finish each month. Thanks, ERE!
Now for the complaint: I hate
