I work in a busy RPO office, we make dozens of employment offers on behalf of our clients every single day and 9 times out of 10 these offers are accepted. Candidates are grateful for the offer and excited to start a new job and hiring managers get a brand new person on board.
I have noticed though, that there seems to be a small percentage of candidates who wait until the very last moment to demand a very unreasonable change to their offer. In my previous firm someone's…Continue

As I was looking at the Twitter stream last week, I came across this tweet:
"Most important recruiting analytic is hardest to Identify: source of hire"
I found this tweet interesting for a few reasons.
First, I think we all understand that this is a huge pain point for many organizations. Recruiting organizations are still having a hard time to accurately tracking source to hire with their ATS and other…Continue

What exactly is happening in the job board and online recruiting world? Well, to paraphrase Neil Young, ‘job boards never sleep’ (okay, yes, that was awful!), so here’s a quick roundup of some industry tidbits:
To many in the business world, recruiters are the cowboys of the wild west, swaggering into the bar, a cocky tilt to their hat, six shooters blazing, while HR the barkeep stands protectively behind the bar, dressed in conservative fashion, running a tidy shop, trying to conserve the peace and keep any ruffians under…Continue
If you are involved in resourcing, whether in house or on the supply side, you won't have failed to have noticed the big shift and conversation around direct resourcing. You will also, I’m sure, have come across many conversations about the candidate experience, or lack of it – …Continue
In an ideal world an Employer would open an application, input their job description and candidate requirements, press “Go” and it would produce a map with the 3 best candidate matches, their CVs, current locations and contact numbers.
Though it sounds great, there are some problems with this model:…Continue
Abraham Lincoln said “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe". This is the way any successful person should prepare for every battle. Don’t get me wrong I haven’t always been someone…Continue
It goes without saying - every move you make has the potential to shape your career for years to come. From time to time, when you are not looking for a new role - well curious folks come knocking on the door and try to lure you away. In these economic times, many of us have not had that happen for some time and perhaps, we go from place to place, company to company seeking a haven from the economic storm brewing all around us, even facing a unique opportunity or two, where the money may…Continue

Last week, to put it mildly, was a difficult week. Several weeks of sourcing, countless phone screens, a job description that changed more times than Lady Gaga changes hairstyles and a group of hiring managers that think they’re the Second Coming culminated in a hiring event on Thursday. Six open positions and eight prescreened/qualified applicants. The odds were in my favor, or so I thought.
By the end of the day I was feeling pretty good about what we had accomplished. …Continue
“Recruiting is hard. It’s just finding the needles in the haystack. You can’t know enough in a one-hour interview. So, in the end, it’s ultimately based on your gut. How do I feel about this person? What are they like when they’re challenged? I ask everybody that: ‘Why are you here?’ The answers themselves are not what you’re looking for. It’s the meta-data.” – Steve Jobs
Finally someone has come out and said what we in the business of recruiting and talent acquisition have known all…Continue

Recruitment is all about a brief moment in time. 2 weeks before the job was advertised a better candidate may have been available but isn’t now. 2 weeks after the job is filled a better candidate may come onto the market but it’s too late. We cannot change the fleeting nature of the moment but we can make sure that we get the most out of it at the time.
So when the hunt’s on do you choose Sniffer dogs or an Eagle?
The traditional method is…Continue
A colleague got me going on this blog idea...and after a little research I love it!. For those of you who don’t know who Gunnery Sergeant Hartman is, he’s one of the main characters in Full Metal Jacket and is…Continue
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, about Facebook. And as a result, I found myself watching the “Social Network” movie for a second time!
It’s interesting because I do have a Facebook page, but only because friends & family and those from the past continued to send invites to connect. Very seldom do I log in. I don’t play games, write on someone’s wall or read updates.
So it’s obvious that I am not yet a real fan or user of Facebook! I see it as the old beer…Continue
Well 2nd worst. The first one was when I landed a meeting with this startup in NYC that gad this preposterous idea to start a whole channel devoted to Food!? We didn't get the account but as I got in the elevator with my associate I said "Yeah, like anyone is going to watch a 'Food Network' "
This past Friday we were called in to make peace with the HR department of an old client. My partner has been recruiting for them since they were 20 people and now they have 2000. So…Continue
There has been a few posts recently on refferal recruiting, and whether technology and employer branding initiatives will make every employee a recruiter for the company.That's not a view I hold. The best people to recruit are recruiters, Their job is to identify the best candidates for a post, manage the hiring manager and both sides of the process and close all parties…Continue
I see so many companies waste a ton of money and time on advertisements , job boards, ATS’s , specialized databases, magazine placements, search firms and much more but they neglect the most powerful tool at the disposal of corporate HR”s arsenal: “the employee referral program". Dont' get me wrong we sometime need to use…Continue
