Approach and style of conversation

One of the ways you immediately know when someone is junior is when they "follow the book".  They talk like they're reading from a script.  They greet you with unnecessary formalities and communicate with you like they "think they should".  There is absolutely nothing wrong with this except that it doesn't feel genuine and tells the person on the other end of the conversation that you're kind of new at this.

On the flip side, I was told recently that a client thought I was…

It's so hard... but is it?

 

So my last post was about how tough the hard knock stories are to manage some days.  Today it’s more about why so many recruiters/HR/managers don't effectively communicate with their candidates - especially when declining them.

Failing to follow up - stop wasting business opportunities

Does the following sound familiar to you?

“I met this great person at an event last night, we got on really well, and they are about to instruct an advisor to do what we do, but the opportunity just didn’t come up to ask the question”.

Employee Referrals Gone Wild – The Rest of the Story…

Here’s an interesting email / follow up I got today thanks to Employee Referrals Gone Wild, which I wrote back in April (hint – nothing on the internet ever dies).

Placing Difficult Job Orders

I wanted to reach out to you all to get some advice on filling a difficult job order. I am a new recruiter in the healthcare field (placing admin. jobs), so I am trying to develop my sourcing skills at this time. I feel I have maximized all of my efforts in locating the qualified candidates in our internal system. I have posted on my own personal Facebook page (as I know many people in this particular field) as well as my LinkedIn account. No luck. I've also tried to get referrals from tons…

Candidates Should Mirror Athletes.

As my recruitment career continues and the list of candidates I deal with increases, it becomes very apparent that there is a small minority that truly stand out above the rest, the elite. There is a very definite quality they have and that is shown in the extra level of effort in all that they do.

With Euro 2012 in full flight (never mind England, we'll get…

Stories of a jobseeker vol. 3: Learn something

There's not much positive you can take from a job search, especially one that goes on for an extended period of time. It's often an endless roller coaster ride of emotions and highs and lows. More often than not, the lows linger if you let them. Your time is most often spent searching for and applying to multiple jobs per…

Building Trust Between Recruiting and Sales

When They Just Can't Get Along

When sales executives promise clients the world, and recruiters can't deliver, you get a mixture of bad blood and toxic rivalry:

"I no longer trust the sales person to bring in a qualified and fillable job requisition. I won't recruit on ANY of this sale's persons requisitions."

Sound familiar?

Bad Relationships…

Find Success with a Keyword Rich LinkedIn Profile

It goes without saying that networking is an effective way to build your business, or to get yourself seen when looking for a new career. Back in the day, that meant pressing the flesh and exchanging business cards, but the internet era has made that something of a thing of the…

New Kewl Vs. Old Skool.

There were two young recruiters who got tired of pounding the phones, making people mad, fighting for job orders, being dissed by internal recruiters and HR and being one upped by their office mates who had been in the business for years who seemed to be making all the placements and all the money.

 

They decided to revolunitize the industry, go into career consulting and placement, get paid by candidates then offer up those candidates to companies at a much reduced rate...like…

Why Clients Should Love Recruiters

It was 1892 in Western Oklahoma, my Great Grandfather had settled on a piece of land, not far from the Old Chisholm Trail. He made this his home, in the side of a hill for a while. As he stood out at the edge of the prairie grass, looking out over the wildflowers, locals call Indian Paintbrush, he knew he had traveled far. But more importantly, he had a vision, and he had a passion for what he wanted for his family, himself, and all of those around him.

I was born in Oklahoma, and…

Linkedin's key missing link (and what I did about it).....

I got into the recruiting world 3 years ago and, like a lot of us, started using Linkedin very heavily to find prospective candidates and work my network for referrals. Recruiting like any sales process is inefficient but the one thing that struck me was the heavy reliance on guesswork on which candidates I would reach out for specific positions. Linkedin has many great features but a key thing it lacks is giving you an understanding of candidate intent when it comes to job search. In fact…

WHAT, Pray Tell Were You Thinking?

I was having one of those fun discussions with another recruiter last night.  You know the kind where one of you says, "you are not going to believe what my candidate or my client did today".  They tell you , you laugh and say, "My friend, the first story always suffers."  After about 30 minutes of that we reached a learned consensus that the world is doing "weird shit" right now.  Maybe we are too, but of course we didn't seem to think so, or at least i didn't think he was doing a lot of…
