Have You Ever Had a Boss You’d Call Friend - Burning Bridges

I'm sure you've heard the a saying, "The grass isn't always greener". Does this apply to you when it comes to your career? How many times have you left a company thinking it was the right thing to do?



Maybe you left for:



- more money

- loftier title

- closer to home

- more flexibility

- better people



The problem is once you get to the new company you realize they have their own warts that you didn't see during the interview process. This blog… Continue

He found a job: My interview with Joe Rohde

This week I am interviewing Joe Rohde. Joe has had a great sales career and agreed to chat for a bit about what's been successful in his job search.



First, can you give an over view of your background and the circumstances that led to your unemployment?



My experience was continuous growth which alternated between startups and established companies. Typically my success was in establishing the 'early adopter' customers for new technologies and products. The immediately… Continue

Hiring 32 Professionals: All agencies welcome to submit candidates*

*Conditions apply



Sounds fabulous, doesn't it? Surely it can't be true?



But it is! There really is a hiring boom in one organisation, in contrast to the hiring hibernation occurring almost everywhere else in the recruitment forest. And you don't have to have ANY previous relationship with the company to submit candidates.



Surely this is too good to be true? So what's the catch?



You bet there's a catch. And this catch provides a revealing glimpse into… Continue

Cloud Recruiting Nuts & Bolts II: Social Networking Services (SNS) and ATS - $ apropos

In the previous post I talked about a new mobile app in the pipeline from Asurion Mobile Technology: AddressBook. This app allows you to integrate social networking services with the address book on your smart phone such that one can track all of the SNS-based (social networking service) interactions with a particular individual from one place.



Of course this provides a number of benefits, including time management and better relationship management. In this post, I would like to… Continue

Unifying a Fragmented Employment Industry

Many people have fallen victim to the ever fragmenting employment industry. High job board costs force companies to explore alternative avenues for advertising available positions and the scattering of jobs force job seekers to post their resume to multiple employment sites. Millions of jobs are left unfilled, millions of job seekers are left out of work, and thousands of job boards are cashing-in on the failures of both.



Overhead and value perception have created an unbalanced range… Continue

Can the staffing industry really learn a lesson on customer service from Qantas, of all companies?

I see a lot of the inside of planes. Being responsible for a recruitment business in upwards of 25 cities, in 15 countries, takes care of that. And I have been a Qantas “Platinum Frequent Flyer” for 8 years straight as a result.



Lately I have been assessing why I usually fly Qantas, as I have been getting more and more aggrieved at the airlines pricing policy. Seriously, Qantas regularly have Business Class seats at TWICE the price of comparable airlines to places like Shanghai,… Continue

How to manage life as a consultant – stress

www.consultgenie.com



Let’s admit it, a consultant’s life is not exactly stress-free. Yes, there are no routine office pressures, no back biting to manage, no office politics to deal with and no boss to breath down your neck. That makes life much better for a consultant than for regular employees. But, there is always the uncertainty of work, low work periods, delays in payments and sometimes too much work coming your way. All these can cause grief, stress and in extreme… Continue

The Client Side - The Success Model

The other night I had the pleasure of being on the HR Happy Hour show with Steve Boese. I'm a bit of a fish out of water when getting heavily into HR talk because I'm not an HR guy. I'm a recruiting business guy. However, it was fun and there were several topics that came up that I think are worth exploring in much greater detail. As an aside, one that did not come up was the story of the night Tracy Tran missed the game of the century in order to save the planet. A night I'll never forget and… Continue

Elbow Grease

I'm not a handy man. I try, but to be bluntly honest... I'm useless, light globes I can do, mow the lawn... OK, cut stuff up.. OK, but anything useful, work on the car, fixing broken things in general.. no way! Much to the distress of my wife and probably embarrassment of my Dad, who is the most MacGyver type guy I know.



However I was partaking in some blokey (for those in the US, read REAL MANLY) outdoor activity, had the women folk inside tending to the young 'uns. OK I was outside… Continue

Ten Things I’ve learned as a Corporate Recruiter

After many years in corporate recruitment I've learned a few things. At least I think I have. Read the following ten things I've learned and see if they resonate with you. Please add some things you've learned as a comment.

  1. Hiring managers often complain about not receiving enough good resumes from you but they often either don't review or don't respond to the resumes you send them.
  2. Candidates apply to jobs that they have no business applying to. I'm a plumber so I'll…

Generic recruitment - why so many ads look the same!

Far too many position descriptions are complicating the recruitment process, rather than helping recruiters to recruit the right person. Good recruitment always starts by having a crystal clear understanding of what the role is (and not is). This is also fundamental for any advertisement, as role clarity is the key for finding the right person.



As I indicated in a previous blog, having a well-written role competency profile is critical - not a flowery or generic description of tasks… Continue

Truth In Advertising

Imagine this.



A new customer introduces you and your firm to an opportunity where, if you successfully fill their most challenging requirement, it will open up numerous doors to other opportunities within their organization. If you land the placement, you will regarded as a “Staffing Firm above all Staffing Firms” – one that not only found their hardest to find resource but also one that uniquely separated themselves from the packs of other staffing vendors that have struck out on… Continue

Searching For the New Recruiting Model

A few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night and it was obvious that something was weighing heavily on my mind. Actually, it was this free-to-fee recruiting business model that I read about on a LinkedIn group.



This new model appears very practical, it fulfilled a need, solves a career progression challenges and could possibly stimulate jobs growth and pull the economy out of this downward spiral.



But it was the perception and the lack of clarity on how to sell… Continue
