What Makes Me A Smart Recruiter

I am not so convinced I am a smart recruiter because 75% of what I know has come from trial and error and 25% from listening to what others do and then make it work for me in the way I do things. Maybe the combined knowledge of messing things up and listening to smart folks makes me a smart recruiter.

Here are five reasons for my success:

- Short memory and avoiding the roller coaster. In football they say the best cornerback’s have a short memory. What they mean is… Continue

What Makes Me A Smart Recruiter

I'm curious. There is no better quality to have when you're dealing in people.

I'm curious about what people want, what they're paid, why they like and don't like their jobs, what they're willing to do to change their position in the world, what holds them back, what makes them fear change, what makes them desperate enough to create change.

I'm curious about those who stay in a job because it's the right thing to do, and those who leave because life's too short, curious… Continue

Another banking CEO's legacy

We hope to do to this industry what Wal-Mart did to theirs, Starbucks did to theirs, Costco did to theirs and Lowe’s-Home Depot did to their industry. And I think if we’ve done our job, five years from now you’re not going to call us a bank.

That's right, Kerry K. Killinger, former CEO of Washington Mutual - they'll think of you as a F-A-I-L-U-R-E.

How about a few other big-box ideas?

Cardio Depot - In aisle one we have bypasses; aisle… Continue

Expecting Greatness in 2009--is your glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?

Expecting Greatness in 2009? Did I not get the memo on the whole recession thing?

Well, yeah. But, I've been through this before, back in 2001 and I'm hoping that I learned something from that.

There's two ways you can go in the coming year. You can buy into the whole pessimistic outlook, that we're in a recession and things are only going to get worse, we're doomed, why bother getting out of bed, etc. If you do take that mindset, you'll likely receive all that you… Continue

Wee Own Yu

In the past decade, China has invested upward of $1 trillion, mostly earnings from manufacturing exports, into American government bonds and government-backed mortgage debt. That has lowered interest rates and helped fuel a historic consumption binge and housing bubble in the United States.

China, some economists say, lulled American consumers, and their leaders, into… Continue

Recruiting...the CIA way

The Afghan chieftain looked older than his 60-odd years, and his bearded face bore the creases of a man burdened with duties as tribal patriarch and husband to four younger women. His visitor, a CIA officer, saw an opportunity, and reached into his bag for a small gift.

Four blue pills. Viagra.

"Take one of these. You'll love it," the officer said. Compliments of Uncle Sam.

The enticement worked. The officer, who described the encounter, returned four days…

Whats the "it" gift for RBC 2009?

I love my Slouch hat but with people making fun of it, I'm becoming a bit gun shy about wearing it in public. In the past, JD and I have talked about mugs and bumper stickers and these might work well but I know there is something out there to really tug on the purse strings of RBC members and hopefully serve as seed money for the community's philanthropic efforts for 2009.

Then I read about… Continue

Now, in a reverse miniature brain drain, Chinese financial institutions are taking advantage of the downturn and focusing on the newly unemployed to diversify and upgrade their own staffs.

“We’re looking very hard right now for experienced, senior-level talent who have knowledge of China. For our junior-level positions, we continue to recruit from our local Chinese talent…

Ways you can charge your job board users

Working in the online recruitment industry, I’m often amazed with the variety of ways job site owners charge the users of their service. My company produces software packages for building job board sites, and we configure these different charging plans for our clients. The first thing that I noticed is that there was no standard business model that job site owner choose. Everyone is trying to use unique model, and it… Continue

Approach towards Smart Recruiting, Poor Economy and Life

Just because I'm losing

Doesn't mean I'm lost

Doesn't mean I'll stop

Doesn't mean I'm in a cross

Just because I'm hurting

Doesn't mean I'm hurt

Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserve

No better and no worse

I just got lost

Every river that I've tried to cross

And every door I ever tried was locked

Ooh-Oh, And I'm just waiting till the shine wears off...

You might be a big fish

In a little pond

Doesn't mean… Continue

What makes me a Smart Recruiter

Below are 5 things that make me a smart recruiter:

5. Know your role as a recruiter. Our role is to work for the client and as an advocate for the candidate. This means that if someone isn't right for your client no matter how much you like them doesn't matter. Helping people, especially in times like these, is a nice thought though we are not social workers. When we do find who we feel is the right candidate however it is up to us to be an advocate for them and convince the client… Continue
