I am entering my 17th year in recruiting and it still amazes me to hear how corporate recruiters will not utilize the sources that are most readily available to them but only focus on new or trendy sources. In addition, over the years I have read articles about best sources, and how if I didn't use a certain source before…Continue
Earlier this morning, I stumbled upon an extremely interesting overview of a "Mathematics Event" presentation offered at the 2010 AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science).…Continue

Seeing what is really there, a story of how to X-Ray
The term “X-Ray” sounds so cloak and dagger that it confuses Recruiters more than anything. The…Continue

Last post, we discussed how to get started in the new, self-employment-based careers of the Great Recession. In today's post, we'll describe this in more detail, along with the career paths available in this new environment. To get an idea of the new career ladder, let's explore a hypothetical worker who has reached the top of the traditional ladder, and show what it looks like to start over as a self-employed worker.
For this example, we'll use a CEO of a small…Continue
About 6 months ago I wrote a post on www.recruitingfuture.com which was a first attempt to group together some of the key elements and themes of social recruiting. For my first post on UK Recruiting Blogs I thought it would
be worth revisiting them to see if they are still relevant and to see if
anything has changed. This is what I came up with last July -…
As a fledgling blog I am delighted with the amount of interest there has been in
what I have been talking about on Recruitmentdad.com. I am also really pleased
to see how many people are returning to read each new posting. I trust that all
of you reading it find it both enjoyable and useful! As with any new blog the
build up of traffic can be gradual so I wanted to share with you…

The telephone has become mobile, and it has transformed recruiting from a 9-5, to a 24/7 work day!
But it is also an irony that this effective device is vastly becoming the most overlooked tool in recruiting passive candidates.
The content of this blog post did not start out as a study; it started out as a mission of a fast start in 2010 and to erase some of the bad memories…Continue

The above video is supreme. It has nothing directly to do with recruitment, but it made me think hard about recruitment, especially what would happen if there was more revolutionary, transformational and original thinking within the recruitment industry. It also follows on from my…Continue

Thought I would share a bit with the Corporate HR world on how far we go to deliver the right Candidates to our Clients and what we do day in and day out to close candidates. A member of my recruitment team had to break down the numbers as to why the $83k/yr job was not as valuable as the $70k/yr role. Yes he pulled him away from the current opportunity and re-close him on the role that…Continue
As an example of using a chain saw when a scalpel is needed, is there a better one in HR than Behavioural Descriptive Interviews? Most people in HR have no idea what the background is on these ubiquitous interviews, don't understand why they were developed, and, as a result, advocate their use in the wrong places. Before I start my rant, some disclosure, I am Certified in Behavioural Descriptive Interviews, right from the source, DDI themselves. But that doesn't mean I have joined the cult,…Continue
I’m sure that many of you Recruiters have worked in an organization that provides some type of referral program to encourage more qualified candidates. Unfortunately, most of these programs limit your ability to provide a flexible referral dollar or incentive to the referring party.…Continue
