While I’m all for being grateful, especially being mindful of this during this week’s American Thanksgiving celebration, I’m not too keen on satisfaction. Satisfaction can become a trap that keeps you cemented to your doorstep, allowing competitors to grab the glory, the gusto, and even some of your market share.

When I first heard those words, I was working on a project and made a typographical error. I corrected the issue, but instead of being recognized for fixing the mistake, I got yelled at. I was disciplined as if the typo had not been caught and the hypothetical "worst case scenario" had occurred. Confused and hurt, I asked for guidance. The advice that I received was "don't take it so personally - it's just business."
For a while, business became impersonal.…

2015 will be the year of the Recruiter. There are several factors that are working together to cause this perfect storm for next year and I believe that the Recruitment Industry, both on the Contract-to-Hire/Temporary labor side as well as the Direct Hire/Permanent placement side will see great growth next year.
Our firm, which specializes in both Direct Placements and Contract-to-Hire requisitions has already started to see an uptick in 4th quarter - 2014 job orders, and only see it… Continue

I'm looking for a Recruiting Software/program/app that would help Managers of staffing firms best decide which jobs they should allocate their recruiting manpower towards (as often times, there are too many jobs, and not enough recruiters).
Is there anything out there like this? If not, why not?

We have all been there. Stressful recruiting situations demand the quest for finding fit. It is the essence of all we do. Regardless of what fit is defined as, the real truth is there are so many with a different understanding of what it truly means, the reality of the process is that quest for fit really comes down to a few factors quite honestly. And defining "Fit" in your organization is really the backbone of each and every hire, fill, and staffing outcome… Continue

It was only a matter of time before the meme craze hit colleges and it has done so in a big way. Well, there is no better way to share fun than through a meme these days but the creativity you observe from college education based memes is just astounding.

My friend, a candidate I placed 15 years ago at MicroOptical Corporation (the company Google bought the "Google Glass" patents from) is a former Everest climber, who wrote the book on the search for Mallory and Irvine (first team to summit Everest in 1924, but died on the descent).
He has a client who has developed a search engine that is much better than Google or Bing (much more specific, no extraneous results, searches text perfectly to find results, understands text rather than… Continue

The world’s population is expanding on a daily basis - it is estimated that by 2050, there will be 9.7 billion people on our small planet.
That sheer number of people that will exist on the planet by that time means that there will be a larger need for energy and power than at any point in human history to date. As a result, governments around the world will be devoting an increasing amount of time and money towards solving their energy needs. With fuel commanding higher prices than… Continue

Recruiting has shifted in a clear direction – one where social recruiting has become the norm. Being able to connect with potential candidates online has opened up a whole new world of possibilities with expanded networks and reaching passive candidates with much more ease.
Out of this trend, new technologies like talent communities, portals, networks and others have emerged. There are many versions of these, ranging from engagement as a simple Facebook page to something more… Continue
