Dos and Don'ts for careers sites

Just posted a new vidcast about the dos and don'ts for careers sites. Check it out here or read below:

I'm in the midst of consulting a client on how to make their careers site more effective, and every time I do some research to take a look at what companies are doing out there, I get rather depressed seeing how terrible careers sites are these days.

They are the single most important part of any company's site, as… Continue

Dr. Jekyll, Mr... Tech Support?

A vast majority of my blog has been dedicated to candidate advice. I figured amongst the cold blasts of snow, a lighthearted candidate story or two would be appropriate.

#1 – The Cold Shoulder

I was working on a Technical Support role for a company in Boston. I had a lengthy phone discussion with said candidate, for sanity’s sake we shall call him “Bob.” Bob seems interested in the role, I explain the need to meet with him prior, etc. Shortly thereafter, I receive a few emails… Continue

Client or Candidate - who is the real customer here?

Is the client or the candidate the more important customer? When working for a staffing firm I can recall having this argument many times. It usually started when the candidate wanted more out of the client thus making some negotiations necessary. It was a two-way street, though, and the salespeople made their argument loud and clear when the client made similar requests.

So who really is the customer? The client? The candidate? Both? If both, who takes precedence during tough… Continue

Employment Agency question

I may have an opportunity part time working in an agency and we have been talking about light industrial as one of the areas I might concentrate on. The question is, what does an Agency need as far as workers comp or anything else to be able to supply companies with these type of workers. This would be in NJ. Thanks!

You recruited them, laid them off, now they're in hock

"Before, so many of us were living a good life here...Now we cannot pay our loans. We are all just sleeping, smoking, drinking coffee and having headaches because of the situation."

To make matters worse, a "new draft media law [in Dubai] would make it a crime to damage the country’s reputation or economy, punishable by fines of up to 1 million dirhams (about $272,000). Some say it is already having a chilling effect on reporting about the crisis."

So you… Continue

Direct Marketing of Talent

Hi group, I'm new here. I've been in mid-level retained recruiting for quite a while (I helped start back in the late 90s). Like a lot of folks in our industry, even with great clients, I'm experiencing a slow period. My question is, is it possible to market solid candidates I worked with for retained searches that didn't get offers? About half are still employed and half are between jobs. It's tough listening to their stories. So has anybody here had any luck taking great… Continue

American Tech Workforce is Tougher than Ever

Despite the massive layoffs across the board in technology from Big Blue to small-fry tech companies, there appears to be a streak of confidence among the masses. People in technology – engineers, software developers, IT, sales and marketing – seem to be a bit stronger through this crisis than in the past. Some of this may have to do with the bubble bursting on many of us in the dot com era. Or, it may have to do with the hope a new administration promises. More likely, much of it has to do… Continue

Bounty Jobs - Two Sides to the Coin

I initially had some junior recruiters work some search assignments on this site and in my opinion this site was strictly being used to build up a company's resume database. Seriously, is there any reason why any company would "engage" over thirty recruiters if they were operating in good faith. Secondly, all the feedback I have gotten from recruiters has been negative.

However, there are two sides to this equation - if a company engages your firm I believe you have every right to… Continue
