Admittedly, I like to tell stories, and if I may say so, this is one of my strengths as a recruiter. Storytelling can be a powerful tool in the recruitment process.
If you are embarking on a search to find a new team member for your own company or on behalf of a client, one of the first things I recommend (if you haven’t yet done so) is to think about the company’s story. If the company is a startup, you won’t have a lot of history to fall back on, but you can still have a compelling… Continue

Just over a year ago the buzz in the market was all about how much today is a buyer’s (candidate’s) market and how there were more jobs than there was talent to fill the openings. From about 2001 to the end of 2007 the economy was souring and the number of jobs being created was increasing at fast rates. It was a time when such statistics as "44 million Gen “X”ers in the workforce to replace 77 million retirees" and "11,000 people are reaching age 55 every day" were staggering numbers that… Continue

News flash - these are challenging days! OK, that's sooo old news by now, but nonetheless it still garners headlines. As a profession that relies on a healthy job market, well....need I say more?
Working in a consultancy firm - our clients have always been important to us, but in times like these they are all the more so. I am reminded of that classic little ditty, "Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold". Not to say we think of our clients as merely… Continue

My favourite is "I'm not wanted in this state"
It's funny though if these candidates are getting through to a face to face interview, what kind of pre screening are the interviewers doing??

I had an interesting conversation today with one of my clients. Over the last seven years I have been witness to Marks setbacks and successes, his layoffs and his promotions. I've met his wife, his kids, and he has met my sons. I consider him a friend.
This past Friday he was laid off from a software firm that had difficulty securing an additional line of credit. At best, the firm has another 6-8 weeks before they close up shop. Mark called me… Continue

Let me compare recruitment brand with product brand, how important is a
brand for a product....? as important as a name is to a human. The brand is the identity of
the product, the brand is how a product will look to its customers, it acts as the medium of
communication and products brand promotion is so vital the it determines the popularity
of the products in the market, the sales of the product depends upon the brand.
Its the same with a recruitment brand, it… Continue

“You want to play house you got to have a job. You want to play nice house, very sweet house, you got to have a job you don’t like.” (John Givings – Revolutionary Road)
I agree, on the surface it is not the most likely of movies that one could relate to Recruiting but I loved the movie Revolutionary Road – I found it to be an insightful and intriguing look at the human psyche. I saw it last night for the first time and will likely watch it again tonight. If you happen to be… Continue

In our business we are constantly putting together plans; sales plans, call plans, recruiting plans, marketing plans. Recently we initiated a huge marketing campaign complete with timelines, brochures and touch points. Now all we required was a list from our sales team of their top 20 prospects. Easy enough, the lists are compiled and released to marketing!
But one questions jumped out to me; “Do our top prospects know that they are our top prospect? Campaigns are great, they get the… Continue

The most important part of sales is going out into the field and getting new customers. In recruiting we call this marketing or business development. The next thing is to keep them once you get them to give you a try.
Think about the last time you had friends over for a get together. The next day you got a call from a friend who was there you to tell you what a good time they had. Didn't that make you feel good?
If you call your client the day after you start working on… Continue
