How to Get a Recruiter to Open Your Resume

It's not easy to get your resume noticed in this job market. Spamming companies with unsolicited resumes doesn't work. The best way to get a recruiter to read your attached resume: Put the job title in the subject line and summarize your qualifications for that job in the body of your email.

The reality. A recruiter will not be likely to open an unsolicited resume. Recruiters are focussed on the job opportunities they are trying to fill right…

Recruit or not to recruit...that is the question!

You own a small business or you help manage one. You feel responsible for the lives of the people who work for you and you think the market is going to pick up at some point in the next year. Maybe an “extra” sales person would help your business grow. Maybe you have the right sales people, but they are starting to get busy…

thinking "out of the box" to conduct candidate searches

can anyone give me some ideas on how they have tried "out of the box" thinking and were successful at finding candidates other than job fairs, posting, linkedin and referrals? Our company is seeking Inside Sales Reps and having difficulty finding the qualified candidates.

Stimulus Rally?

Our Socialist In Chief is out today claiming his stimulus package from last year worked. That's laughable. The stimulus hasn't done anything. Remember he said we needed the stimulus package because without it we may run up to 9% unemployment, and that would be disastrous. Well, he got his stimulus package and with all that it has done unemployment was up over 10% last month and…

Sports Teams Going Social to Recruit Talent

Owners, General Managers, Athletic Directors, and Coaches understand better than most the need to secure top talent for their sports team. However, they have not just paid lip service to this belief. Instead, they have relentlessly adopted innovative recruiting practices focused on gaining a competitive advantage for their organizations.

Buzz Off!.. No, On. Uhm, Off.

buzz Okay, so we've had Google Buzz for what boils down to a week now. And we've heard phrases like "what Wave should have been" or "the Twitter killer" or "the best thing in my Inbox." But on day 7 I think I'm going to assign my own analogy to… Continue

Multi posting what is it and do we need it?

Multiple posting is becoming an essential tool to have as a recruiter. It is common knowledge that no single job board can consistently produce results and quite often some vacancies need to be placed on up to 5 job boards (niche and generic) to return the required candidates to fill the position within a reasonable amount of time. An effective multipost service enables a significant reduction in the time to post adverts to job boards and manage the response from one place,…

GPS for Recruiting Passive Candidates

Recruiting activities have been slow as of late and like most of my clients, I have become more focused on my own operating budget. Now that I have fully accepted that cost consciousness is the new normal, I’ve done my part and have successfully completed my personal and corporate tax returns. That’s right, I did it all by myself!…

Generation Bowie – the original flexible workforce?

“Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it” (George Orwell)

“Talking ’bout my generation” (Pete Townsend, 1964)

‘Trying to forget your generation/I say your generation don’t mean a thing to me’ (Billy Idol, 1977)

I’m reading a lot of blogs lately concerning generational demographics, particularly looking at how the attitudes of…

Job clouds, job boards, and the job seeker

Matt Alder published a fascinating piece last week about ‘job clouds’ and why he thought Twitter could be the future of job boards. It was one of those “I wish I had written that!” moments for me, to be honest.

In brief, he posits the creation of a ‘job cloud’ created by multiple employer Twitter feeds of their jobs. This cloud would be much larger than any individual existing… Continue
