pic_logo_119x32 Most people have heard of LinkedIn® (LI) and may even have an account. What I want to discuss today is if you are looking for a job and don't have a LI account (a basic account that is free is all you need), get one. If you have one, some easy things to make it work better for you.

Paperless Recruiting - Paperless Job Hunting

beamME Year to date I'm paperless. That's right - I haven't personally created even a shadow of a paper footprint so far this year. Some days are obviously easier than others but for the most part it's been a pretty satisfying journey.



In staff meetings I typically have my laptop for notes and follow up items. When that proves too cumbersome or unrealistic I simply take notes on my blackberry or iPhone. (Yeah, I'm getting pretty fast with these thumbs - soon I'll have the mad… Continue

The Dirty Words Recruiters Use

Let me start by saying, I love the recruiting business. Our business has provided my family and I (wife and 4 kids - all 5 and under!!), with an excellent living. In the past several years I have been more on the management side and given the opportunity to train and develop many new recruiters within both the corporate and agency side.



Over the years there are several words, words that I consider "dirty words", that I have seen destroy personal success and production. No recruiter… Continue

Be the Solution

Take a step back from the job seeker perspective and take a look at the hiring manager”s perspective. The hiring manager is hiring because he has a problem. He either is in need of additional help or he is not satisfied with an employee and he wants to replace that employee. The hiring manager has a problem, you may not know exactly what the problem is but he is looking for a solution to his problem so he is hiring.



The challenge for the interviewee is to be the solution. The hiring… Continue

How to use an Executive Recruiter in this Market

We all have been witness to a challenging job marketplace for the past year plus, and those especially hard hit have been the recruiters that make a living placing professionals into firms across many industries. From my personal perspective, as a recruiter within the financial industry, my area of expertise has been decimated. However, the light I see at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train, and I sense that companies will need to start turning back to the recruiters to find… Continue

Social Network Impact...

Social Measurement Not a week goes by that a Social Network Evangelist gets asked how to measure the power of their network. And hey, why not? If I were a naysayer and on the fence about a process that, at a glance, takes up a significant amount of time but is a challenge to measure - I'd probably ask too.



Just a few months ago I posted a quick video and blog… Continue

What makes a job board suck? (Employer version)

Per the previous post, let’s take a look at a few things that can make employers (yes, the folks actually paying) throw up their hands and run screaming from a job board. (Remember, this is just one man’s opinion - throw your own into the mix with a pithy comment). So, without further ado, here are 4 things that make a job board ’sucky’:

Top 10 Reasons Mothers Make the Best Recruiters

As a belated mother's day gift to the mothers on the board...



Top 10 Reasons Mothers Make the Best Recruiters:



10. We’ve been lied to by enough men and children to know exactly what a lie looks like before it even gets out of a hiring manager or candidate’s mouth.



9. We’ve spent most of our lives surrounded by whiners so we are able to tune out anything annoying.



8. The meanest hiring managers/executives/company owners are not intimidating to a woman… Continue

THE BILL GATES METHOD

Opinions may vary, but there is little doubt that Bill Gates has built, and continues to build, a very successful company. I find his secrets and his business strategies to be interesting and helpful:



1. Think and do. The bottom line is results. Thinking is a means to an end – and that end is action. You must take action to get results.

2. Only hire very, very smart people. The biggest problem with mediocre people is that they take up space that could be occupied by brilliant… Continue
