From Recruiting Robots to Relationships

Creating the shift from... one job : one person : one filled order

To....a candidate centric model (imagine that, right?)…

Do you "KIS" with your candidate's resume?

I have been around the business for a long time. Early on and being far less intelligent, something debated to this day I might add, I was quick to use the resume given to me by candidates to present them to my clients. I did little to nothing to change anything on the resume.…

Toyota is Human After All: Cracks in Quality in the World's Best Brand

Coke’s the real thing. (So much so, they sell bottled water.) Everyone loves Google. (Or used to.) Everyone loves Apple. (Except all the folks who don’t.) Everyone’s crazy about Starbucks. (Except for tea drinkers, Peet’s fans, fans of small business, and so on.)

Besides being insanely popular and having detractors, what do these brands have in common? Well, not much—except they all rank at or near the top of Interbrand’s list of the world’s most valuable brand by brand… Continue

Know when to hold ‘em, and when to fold ‘em….

Know when to hold ‘em, and when to fold ‘em….

Suit? No suit? Business casual…. What does that even mean? It’s 95 degrees out and you’re hauling down the street in a full suit, button down, and tie. You’re lost. AWESOME… and to top it off, you have about 1 minute to find where you’re interviewing and all of a sudden – nobody around you seems to speak English. Wait? So Park Street turns into Park Place but I have to cross over the highway? AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Nightmare? NOPE.… Continue

How prepared are you to handle a candidate who happens to be disabled?

I'm looking for some baseline practices (present or absent) in the recruiting process that impacts how we welcome...or not... people who may be eminently qualified but happen to have a visible disability. This survey should take 10 minutes

Assuming someone got far enough to reach a corporate or third party recruiter via phone, tty, etc. I give most recruiters the benefit of the doubt and assume they have sufficient… Continue

Social Media - Go Wide or Go Deep?

Not so long ago I had a conversation with an HR colleague that was looking for a new opportunity. We were talking about resume strategy and I asked her the following question:

What is your goal? Do you want to look like everyone else in the candidate pool and hope you stand out based on your skills? Or can you risk being uniquely you in the way you present yourself? That question completely derailed our resume writing…

Handle with Care (w/Humorous Video)

Like many people in this economy, I've spent a fair amount of time out of work. It's simply not fun. You become so callous to rejection -

if you hear anything at all - that an automated response telling you

"Thank you for your application. At this time we have found more

qualified candidates" is almost something to look forward to.

It's a good thing to keep in mind when dealing with recruits who are out of work and looking. Handle the rejection with…

KPI's are bad for recruitment...

Before joining the recruitment industry wholeheartedly, I, like many others had a pretty rose tinted view of how recruitment worked. It wasn't until it became part of my career did the realisation hit me that far from the focus being on relationships and service, it was instead on sales, closing the deal and hitting KPI's.

Fortunately for me, there are some that believe this to be a waste of time and this has allowed the Courtenay HR business to flourish inside our parent group, where… Continue

Recruiting is a Skill Set: Not Just a Department Title

In an economy that is getting over its hangover and slowly waking from the great recession of 2009, the thought of recruiters adding value to an organization is still an unfortunate after thought in corporate culture. In probably too many companies, Recruiting departments have been played as accordions to shrink and expand with the economic tune of the times.

There is obvious merit to the idea of matching your recruiting staff to meet the demands of hiring, but as most sophisticated… Continue

Ouch! That STINGS! The After Care of Trust

In eleven years of recruiting, I have maintained some pretty long-standing relationships and I feel as though my candidates are candid with me on their views of my performance. And I appreciate that honesty – it has helped me in my never-ending quest to sharpen my saw. But it can sting like mercurochrome at times.…

The problem of duplicate job postings

You know what gets a job seeker truly steamed? Clicking on a link for a job posting – and discovering that it’s exactly the same job he looked at a few seconds earlier. Same job, different listings = unhappy job seeker.

How does this happen? Well, any job board that allows 3rd party recruiters to post their open positions runs the risk of duplicate postings. Let’s say that ABC Company has an listing for a mechanical engineer. The HR person posts it on their company site and also… Continue

The Butler Did It

Believe it or not, there were some valuable recruiting lessons to be learned from this year's NCAA Basketball tournament. National powerhouse Duke barely edged out Butler (a small, private university with 4,000 students in Indianapolis) to win their 4th National Championship. This was Butler's first trip to the Final Four - an unlikely story given the limited size, exposure, and level of talent the school's basketball program normally attracts.…

Talent Management: Guess What, It's All About the Talent

When I hear the term Talent Management, I often hear it talked about in the context of recruiting and sourcing. Now I may be completely off, but to me, Talent Management is much more than just finding people for the role. It’s much more than finding the RIGHT people for a company to fill a job. Talent management is more than just recruiting. It is about how you interact, engage and build the people you have, to retain and develop them and even if they leave you, they… Continue
