4 Reasons to Serve Your Company with Video Interviewing

Video interviewing does more for your company than reducing costs. While it is a great alternative to traditional interviewing, it doesn’t sacrifice any of the qualities of the face-to-face experience. Rather, it transitions it to eye-to-eye. The camera focuses on a candidate’s (and the interviewer’s) face and gives insight into whether there is interest in the position. With…

tool_time



That's right, ladies and gentlemen!  It's Tool Time!  That is, tools for your web browser and tools to help automate your sourcing life.

Last week at a conference, I was talking to a like-minded sourcing guru/technophile.  You know him by his real name: Dean Da Costa.  As we talked about sourcing tools, add-ons, extensions, and whatnot, we talked about blocking domains from search results on Google.

After some recent scheduling inconsistencies causing a few extra absences from the gym, I was pumped to get my sweat on today. My energy level was revved up from the brief break, so I was eager to take advantage of the situation to get back in the groove.

#Talent 42 a Tech Conference for Recruiters by Recruiters

If you know me, not that it matters, you would know that I have never been a fan of conferences. None. I saw zero add other than draining my customers or my bank account. There was little that was innovative or interesting to me. I would go more in depth of why I started going to conferences but that is…

We Aren't Playing Backyard Football Anymore

Remember growing up playing a little backyard football with your neighbors?  Two people were selected to pick teams. You always knew the person who was going to be selected first and typically the person who would be selected last. The most athletic, most capable individuals were picked first.

When Good Interviews Go Bad

Peter Clayton recently posted "The Job Interview..." where he discussed the ubiquitous Candidate Experience. After a few decades of recruiting, I know that the CE is a by-product of both sides of the fence. The Good, the Bad, and the really freakin' Ugly.

Perhaps using humor is a better strategy for teaching the Do's and Don'ts of interviewing. Do any of…

I am just sayin....

My “daughter” likes to preface her more profound statements with the saying “ I am just sayin…” and it seemed appropriate for this post to begin with her saying. Over the past year there has been much discussion in the social media realm about the future of HR.

Dear Cover Letter,

It has been great. We’ve had a lot of great years, a lot of great memories, reading you under those humming florescent lights, tucked away in my cubicle.
