I had a great day today. Did one of the things I love doing most of the world. I went to the MCG with my Dad and my son (and cousin and 90,000 of my best friends) to watch an AFL game. I just love it. The atmosphere, the food, the shouting, the passion, the raw combative power and nature of the game.
I get pretty fired up at these games, I'm not my normal calm self, I kind of get involved. However I have had to calm/centre myself, now I have to be an example to my son. I do need to… Continue

Success. Is it defined by actions? How you treat others? The number of fills you obtain?
A month ago we had the privilege to meet the American Idol from last year Kris Allen at an event I had won tickets to from our local radio station, among the perks were the opportunity to discuss success with Kris Allen and what it meant to him. It was a brief exchange, but he said in so many words, that hard work pays… Continue

I just picked up a new recruiting project and one of the first things the client said was, "Will you post this job?" And I immediately said, "NO!". I don't think I even let him finish the sentence. I am a real recruiter! I don't post jobs, I hunt for my candidates! Posting is for inexperienced, slacker recruiters. Seriously, if my candidate comes from a posting, what value have I brought to the client?
I pride myself on… Continue

You just need to do it. Nike has a point!
Switch off your tweetdeck, log out of facebook, put those Recruiting blinkers on and just go for it. In football parlance... get your head down, put your bum up and just do.
Read the cv's, get on the phone, organise interviews, meet people, get activity happening. Do the reference checks, get the appropriate sign off, give the offer, close the deal! Shhhhh don't tell anyone, but that's your job Mr Recruiter.

IT Job Market is Growing! Is your company ready?
Over the past few months, actually since November of 09 the IT Job Market has been changing drastically from the overall “DOWN Market” that we have seen since late 2007. Across the IT recruiting world we have seen an increase in overall Job’s posted on sites such as Monster, Dice and the like. We have also seen an increase in the number of Perm and Contract positions that are not posted, but are filled through word of mouth or through… Continue

It’s on – technology hiring is in full swing. For the past 12 years we’ve proven to be a leading indicator of market conditions, especially for the technology markets: people stop hiring when things get scary (see last year), and they start hiring when things look good. We’ll be the first to tell you, things are looking very good. And, as if you needed any more proof, we’re actively hiring technology recruiters and recruiting account managers in our… Continue

A few weeks ago during the 3rd annual developer conference, Facebook rolled out some important changes to their platform. Underlying all of these new changes is their vision for a more social web.

For all my blog posts please see "The Savage Truth"
As the market recovers, one of the first impacts on our industry will be a revival of the temp and contract market. Temp-to-perm will be huge. Employers will see increased work volumes as the economy recovers,but will “dip their toes” into the labour market at first, hiring flexible solutions initially. But then, as momentum is gained and confidence returns, they will start to… Continue

“Such a shame, it’s my absolute dream job but I just don’t feel that I can stay”
How often do recruiters hear that?
A candidate said that to me last week. In this case, her problem was her boss...try as she might she found it impossible to have a harmonious working relationship and efforts to work through this had failed. She wants the bits of the jobs that she enjoys – challenge, responsibility, flexibility – but in another environment.
She’s not the first,… Continue
