What makes me a Smart Recruiter? Recruitingblogs.com makes me a smart recruiter and all of you make me a smart recruiter. Let’s face it, we all share somewhat of the same drive and attributes as recruiters. Some just succeed a little more than others.
So what makes me different? Honestly, not much. But one day oh probably a little more than a year ago, I had some great conversations with some guy who had a vision. A vision to create a home for recruiters like you and I. A home where… Continue

What makes me a smart recruiter......
1. I realize this is a game of "finding" not "creating".
A lot of recruiters pay lip service to the old "round hole, square peg" line about the business, but only the ones who get it know deep down that this is a game of finding, not creating. There is a right job for every person and a right person (or more appropriately, right persons) for every job. I drive my business by focusing on finding the right fit, not trying to make what I… Continue

1. I interview every candidate - thoroughly - to understand who they are, what they want, and why I should introduce them to my clients' jobs
2. I never lie to clients or candidates - integrity is a key ingredient
3. I understand my clients' jobs - I ask questions & dig deep
4. I practice continuing education - we should never stop learning
5. I keep good records - make good use of my database

JohnMarch Partners, a boutique healthcare search consultancy based in downtown Dallas, was awarded multiple search assignments by a UAE firm working under contract with the UAE government. We beat out several of the major firms for this assignment. Not only is the work very profitable, there is a good possibility that our academic practice will pick up related assignments.
How did we get the engagement? Believe it or not, it was not that hard. And the account acquisition costs were… Continue

Bigger companies may be too arrogant or too corporate to share and smaller companies don't have the network. This system has been working for us and… Continue

I just love creative license! Five reasons why I'm a smart recruiter:
1. I listen (no, really listen) until I can visualize myself doing the job
2. I eat my frog first (tackle the toughest tasks early) makes the rest of the day amazing!
3. I am disciplined - I keep office hours sacred, don't mix work and personal stuff and calculate the time/value of everything I do.
4. I love people!
5. I return EVERY phone call, respond to EVERY email and am honest with my… Continue

The decision to start my own firm.
This gave me the freedom to make a boatload of mistakes (and not get fired), but it also allowed me to innovate in terms of creating a rigorous candidate screening process and comprehensive dossiers with video summaries of my candidate interviews. Established search firms, like most established businesses, are not willing innovators.
That is one reason...
However, here is the truth: I am a smart recruiter because I have a great… Continue

This is an interesting contest, and since it is pretty random who will win anyway, it will be fun to see what everyone else thinks about themselves! :)
1. My motto is: "It is not just about who you know, but how well you keep in touch with them".
I live by this motto, and more recently this has proven extremely important with my recent lay off
and job search (as well as soul search). You… Continue

See the previous post to this series here.
So here we go! I have met with some fantastic organizations this past week. So far, as predicted, all have come from networking. I have received about 3 phone calls from the job boards this past week, but after calling me, the lower ranges of income that seem to be prevalent here in Utah came up within minutes of starting the conversation. As a result we… Continue

As the economic carnage continues to unfold on Wall Street and other financial centers of the world, Main Street is beginning to brace for what could be tough times for the U.S. While healthcare typically is spared the full brunt of the misery, hospital CEOs have already started to look for ways to cut expenses and to wrench more value from the money they pay to vendors, particularly consultants.
These threatening economic times frame a more important question for healthcare, and the… Continue

I was due for another post anyway and what better subject for that post than ME! I’ve never put a lot of thought into what makes me a smart recruiter, I’m usually much more focused on what will make me a “smarter” recruiter.
1. So I guess that’s the first thing – I am a sponge, always looking to learn new ways to do what I do better.
2. I came to in-house, corporate recruiting from a TPR background. The learning experiences from that part of my career have carried over to… Continue
