What Makes Me a Smart [Sourcer]

I look for and see the "ghosts" in the systems.

I listen for and hear the silence in the noise.

I approach each and every job pretty much the same way organizationally.

I am extremely proactive.

I try to keep things simple.

Being a Servant-Leader in recruiting

Robert Greenleaf, former Director of Management Research at AT&T, noted that:

The servant-leader is servant first...It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions.

In recruiting, and I've noticed that this occurs both on the… Continue

What Makes Me a Smart Recruiter

I've been thinking about this a bit, wanting to do a decent job at this, and not sound too big headed, which for those who know me will know it is tough for me to do, I have a great ego. I know there is no "i" in team, but there is a HUGE "ME" :)

1) I care, cliche? But what do I care about? My candidates? yes (within reason), my company? yes, its brand? yes, the viability of the EVP I'm selling? yes, the quality of the hires I (and my team) make? yes, my own Personal… Continue

Let's Say Thanks

If you were looking for a way to do a bit of "giving" during this holiday season, here's something you might want to think about:

Xerox (full disclosure: I am an ex-Xeroid) is sponsoring a site that will print and send a holiday card to servicemen and women. You can just pick out the card that most appeals to you (they are desgined by school kids and are wonderful) and pick one of the draft messages or create your own, and they will print the card and send it.

You have no… Continue

What Makes Me a Smart Recruiter

What makes me a smart recruiter is my ability to find a needle in a haystack; my ability to see the big picture; my communication skills (receiving & sending); my people skills; my persistence; my perspective; my creativity; my flexibility; my technical expertise and my business acumen. Also, what has helped me the most in recruiting and in life, has been working on my weaknesses (i.e. whether it be by working with a client; developing better search techniques; or by playing different… Continue

Greetings From The Recruiting Animal Show

Dear "friends" (I mean social networking friends, not real friends)

We weren't smart enough to wish (non-specific) holiday greetings
to our many fans this last week, so here's the one we used last year.

As The Marketing Headhunter said at the time:
"These are some of my favorite people, yet
I have never met any of them in person."

What make me a Smart Recruiter?

This is a great topic and the responses have all been wonderful

For me, here is how I answer:

1) I love what I do. I love people and this industry.

2) I use technology and follow technology so I can make the most out of personal relationships

3) focus on other's favorite radio station-WIIFM-what's in it for me, I try to see things from their perspective, not my own.

4) Focus on win, win, win business relationships-if it is good for the… Continue

Candidate Questions that I do not care for

Here is a question that I always have a tough time answering and quite frankly, do not care to.

" How many other candidates are you interviewing for this position?"

I can have an easier time stomaching this if the candidate asks on an initial phone screen or trying to scope out whether this role will be available much longer. I'm more talking about the candidates who ask this question once you have invited them to interview with you. Should it matter? Does that mean they… Continue

What Makes Me A Smart Recruiter

1. I made a decision NOT to be road-kill during this economic crisis. If I am to forecast anything, it won't be my own demise, LOL.

2. When I am between assignments, finding that next assignment IS my assignment, and I treat myself like I treat my best candidate.

3. I start my workday when others are asleep. I start @ 6:30 am. I put in a full day and I still have day light to do things which I finishing a book that I am writing.

4. I don't dwell… Continue

Looking Toward 2009 With Hopeful Eyes

Greetings Everyone:

Hopefully, many of you are in the holiday spirit and ready to ring in 2009. I know I am. After the economic meltdown of 2008 and seeing the legal recruiting market practically dry up, I am ready for 2008 to leave and 2009 arrive. Maybe I am being overly optimistic, but I truly feel that it cannot get much worse and all we have to go from here is up.

During this last quarter of 2008, I took a leave of absence from my blogging. With everyday of bad news, I just… Continue
