Several weeks ago I was contacted by Bill Vick from XtremeRecruiting.tv to do an interview covering the latest in applicant tracking system (ATS). It was a very nice surprise and compliment, yet I did get a bit nervous. To help ease my nerves, my wife told me to just have fun like Recruiting Animal did in his interview. While I didn’t really take the Animal’s approach, I still had a great time. Bill just posted the interview today. Here is the link:… Continue

In my opinion, “time-wasting” should be branded as the 8th Deadly Sin. We’ve all been in a meeting that was less than organized, that devolved into a tangent-fest, or that didn’t start on time (or worse, end on time). But how do you ensure that YOUR meetings will avoid this transgression and accomplish goals efficiently and effectively?

Even though companies are laying off employees left and right, it’s still difficult for HR managers and recruiters to fill the few empty positions they do have. Why is that? As Rapleaf CEO Auren Hoffman explains in his blog Summation
, it’s all about quantity versus quality. The top performers (what Hoffman calls A-Players) in a department are rarely fired; that misfortune usually falls on the… Continue

There are lots of folks out there that simply like to build things themselves. This can easily be seen with home improvement and is backed up with the success of “How to” books and the DIY network. The same is true for software.
A few weeks ago, I was browsing around the internet for some applicant tracking system (ATS) information and came across a video entitled “Build Your Own n-Tier Applicant Tracking System (ATS) in 10… Continue

With all the current economic woes, I am constantly asked by.....well everyone, "when will it get better". Lots of predictions are being made, but the bottom line is, we don't know. So let me share a story about tough times getting better;
3 years ago I was laid off (terminated, downsized, pick the term) from a large corporate entity. I could see it coming, so months prior I had incorporated myself, just in case termination was in the cards. I set up shop in my home and within 2… Continue

Last week I was working at my desk when my oldest daughter came up behind me and asked if I had time to review some homework she'd been working on for her history class. She said she'd already typed it up on her computer and just needed me to take a quick look.
"Sure sweetie," I said. "Just email it to me and we'll take a look together."
She responded with, "No need, Daddy. I already shared it to you." What she meant was that because it was a collaborative… Continue

I was all set to write about people seeking new career direction. “I Want Out” will certainly be a blog in the days to come, a rant about how job seekers are clamoring to leave their selected fields of endeavor and searching for a “safe haven” in which to land their professional behinds.
The aforementioned piece would’ve been ready for posting had I not received a call from an elementary school buddy of mine, Danny Schneider. He’s an enormously modest,… Continue

There are a number of different applicant tracking system (ATS) guides available to help both HR professionals and recruiters narrow down on the vast amount of solutions. These guides typically come from separate angles ranging from ATS vendors steering clients towards their solutions to 3rd party sources with a large amount of ATS experience.
While I have created, reviewed, and purchased many of these guides, I haven’t found one all-inclusive guide that covers all of the features,… Continue
