Would you connect to a politician?

Pretty much all the politicians running for President have created MySpace and Facebook pages; Senator Obama also has a LinkedIn page and group. Senator Clinton and the others are expected to join Senator Obama on LinkedIn shortly.

One could assume that both Senators Obama’s and Clinton’s networks would tend to be heavily populated with minorities. With the…

A fallen recruiter.....

A colleague of mine has recently lost her life. She was also a dear friend of mine. I would greatly appreciate if you can help spread the word in your blogs, or by any other means. Of course I would welcome your attendance to the benefit, as it is a great cause.

Back From NYC

I have spent the last few days in NYC, and I have to say I was impressed. I felt safe and enjoyed the sites. Someone on the subway even did a good deed. Someone with me dropped her purse on the subway and did not see a credit card had fallen out under a chair. He picked it up and handed it back to her.

Also, there are some extemely talented people still available to recruit in this town!

I may have some news in the coming months, I went to Silver Cup Studio productions as well…

linkedin candidates directed to your ATS

I've just seen that LinkedIn upgraded their job posting page and added a feature so that you can now have applicants apply online through your ATS. This is great for managing the candidate flow and most likely ensures that you at least respond to each and every candidate which once in a while may be hard if you get a lot of applicants through email. As well it gives you (or at least us here) an automated tracking of the source so we can see the effectiveness of posting jobs on LinkedIn (not too… Continue

My client refuses to pay me !!

I sent a resume with my candidates permission to a client that I have worked with for the past couple of years. I sent the resume on a (maybe there is a fit) without an actual job order from my client.. My client has given me permission to do this. My contact in HR replied " thanks for thinking of us. I am always willing to see good candidates. Nothing available now."

Anyway, I received an email a couple of day's later from the candidate asking me who I sent the resume to at the…

Professional Pet Peeve #1

Declining an Outlook meeting invite without looking at the date. Sorry, I can't make this meeting tomorrow because blah blah blah reason...even though the meeting invite states the meeting isn't until October. READ THE DAMN DATE PEOPLE! If people would slow down for 5 minutes and read instead of being Mr./Ms. Johnny/Janie On-The-Spot, Fastest Mouse-Clicker West of the Mississippi, Ms. Cleo of Outlook Invitations, I wouldn't have to write this. But no, it must be a race to see who can respond…

That's a big word Dave!

Folksonomy. AKA collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, or social tagging. What a great way to introduce this abstract concept! Dave Copps had just a wonderful talk at SourceCon about real nature of information on the web and how it relates social networking. Web 3.0. This is very much along the line of "Everything is Miscellaneous" by David Weinberger ISBN 0-8050-8043-0.

I also noticed that Dave uses a Mac.…

Youth not always an advantage

Most of us who have been around understand (and sometimes long for) the advantages of youth (especially as our society is obsessed with youth), but when it comes to career changes sometimes a little experience goes a long way.

Obviously my job as a recruiter is to educate and inform a candidate about the interview process and assist them in working through details about a job and anything impacted by a change in jobs. Of course working with candidates who have been…

Re-Recruiting your Current Employees

Is re-recruiting your current employee’s part of your employee retention strategy? If not, it should be, according to Michael Jalbert, president of Management Recruiters International.

“Employers should be applying the strategies and tools of external recruiting to their current employees.”
