From a hiring perspective you could just as easily be watching the rise of salaries in China, but if you want a visual illustration as to why the War for Talent in China is so difficult to win, this video comparison of exports in Asia
over the past 14 years is just the ticket.
You can actually see China rising up like a Goliath, and dwarfing the other countries in the region.

Sourcing 1.0 (Sourcing as Name Generation) has begun to show its cracks . . . much like the notion of CRM ("the right message to the right customer at the right time")
did in the early 2000s. Frankly, most organizations we speak with that are using a Sourcing 1.0 process are just not seeing desired results. Yeah, they may be a very marginal improvement in COH numbers, but there is a coinciding cost as well. Because… Continue

We live, work, and recruit with a fickle bunch. What they want changes from one day to the next - their likes, dislikes; their job-descriptions - products - home addresses.

Anna Brekka is unique for several key reasons, not least of which she is by far the tallest woman in the industry, if not, she may well have the most infectious laugh within it - but I would dare argue, that she is also the most powerful woman in our industry. I can think of only few who has shown… Continue

Most people recognize that we are in the middle of a new media revolution, so why aren’t we seeing more recruitment advertising within online broadcasts?
Ok, from a media consumption perspective I’ll admit my household is a little extreme. 99% of all news, video and audio is delivered via the net [continue… Continue

You just got an offer for the services of your consultant from two clients - now what? Well first off this is a good problem to have - it shows that you're doing a good job assessing talent. But this situation does need to be handled delicately from many aspects, especially when there are multiple salespeople & clients involved.
From the client perspective we've got a "first right of refusal policy" that basically says first company to interview gets 24 hours to offer before… Continue

So, is everyone familiar with Twitter?
Here is a description as posted by Crunchbase
Founded in March of 2006, Twitter is social networking and micro-blogging site that allows users to post their latest updates. An update is limited by 140 characters and can be posted through three methods: web form, text message, or instant message. The company has been busy adding features to… Continue

I've never been a big fan of social media measures, but other people like them. "That's the best we have," people tell me.
Alexa, for example, is a longtime favorite for people to gage traffic, despite its obvious and admitted shortcomings. Some bloggers have even taken to using it as a valuation in order to determine ad rates. Maybe not any longer. Alexa changed its algorithm and plenty of people are cheering and weeping. Me, I'm just laughing because I had doubts (and still do)… Continue

So we all have used Google, Yahoo!, and some of us have even used Microsoft Live and Lycos. Well one search engine in particular has become a favorite of mine and that is Exalead (www.exalead.com). What I like about Exalead is its preview function. It allows you view the document in an HTML format with all the search criteria highlighted. If you click on the highlighted text at the top, it will automatically take you to where the word is located in the document. Then when you are done, with… Continue
