What makes me a smart recruiter?

1. I have an innate interest in people.
2. I'm curious about people.
3. I like people.
4. I like talking to people.
5. I'm a very good listener.

And they can tell that about me and in turn they tell me EVERYTHING about themselves, and before I know it, I understand their value system and if I'm able, I can either engage them as a candidate, or provide them better service as a hiring manager. It's really that easy.

11 Ways You Create Your Own Recession [Great article]

11 Ways You Create Your Own Recession

by Stephen Martile





The media seems to be hypnotized with a recession (if that’s what you want to call it). The media is just killing the minds of the masses and it’s gone too far.



You see, there have been many big ideas out there, except there is one problem. The big ideas are in the wrong direction - the ideas are on big debt instead of earning big money.



I have a close friend of mine tell me that the sky is… Continue

Making a 2009 Networking goal is MAGIC!

I have always loved to network. Yes, it is in my blood somehow. But sometimes even I have to push myself to go to more events.



Last year I made a very mild goal of attending a minimum of two networking events every month. Within 4 months, I had attended enough events to cover my “quota” for the rest of the year.



The thing about going to networking events is that they are magic!



Do you remember when you were a small child and the excitement you felt about your… Continue

A way to search for alumni groups on LinkedIn and Yahoo Groups

I set up a way to search LinkedIn and Yahoo groups for school and company alumni groups. I will be adding other sources of groups in the near future.



http://web.me.com/hydra9/Site_5/Blog/Entries/2009/1/2_Searching_for_alumni_groups.html



Alumni groups either for companies or schools is a great place to find possible candidates or to post jobs often at no cost.



Many allow recruiters to join even if they did not attend the school or work at the company but check… Continue

The Client Side - Hoping for a January bounce

Since my business is focused on the Client Side of permanent placement recruiting, I thought it would be valuable to share what we're experiencing on this end on a regular basis. So here goes...



The last half of December is typically very slow and this year it was the same as it has been in the past, thankfully. To the contrary, the September - October - November period was not even close to anything we had seen in the past. During that period the level of fear that clients… Continue

Happy New Year - Welcome 2009 - What are your goals for this year?

happy-new-year



I don't know about you, but I've been looking forward to 2009 for the last few months. I'm always excited entering a New Year - it's like starting all over again in many ways, which makes this year even more highly anticipated. Since my birthday falls in early January (the 5th), I am full year older at the start of every New Year.

At the start of the every new year I reflect…

2009 Hiring Predictions

Most employers expect to make no major hiring changes next year, and those who do are taking it slow. However, companies are looking at ways to make business operations easier and more cost-effective.



CareerBuilder recently released the results of its latest survey, 2009 Job Forecast, conducted by Harris Interactive. The survey, completed from November 12 to December 1, asked 3,259 hiring managers and human resource professionals in private sector companies about next year’s… Continue

2009 -Your Time To Shine

Reproduced from Fordyce Letter Network blog on New Years Day.



There I was sitting on an airplane the eve before New Years Eve recovering from a 5 day party extravaganza in CABO wondering what I was going to do with myself for the next four hours. I didn't want to drink, I didn't want to talk, I didn't want to read, I couldn't sleep and I didn't have my computer, BUT.....I had my handy dandy I-Phone. Then it hit me....."this is a perfect… Continue

Claudia's Wednesday Wisdom
This week Claudia reminds us why she is so good at helping recruiters who have seemingly intractable problems with candidates, hiring managers, other recruiters, personal hygiene, and so on.

Claudia's general approach to solving problems? Common sense, good manners, a sense of humor and a few choice questions. And once again in this week's post:

Beginning a New Year

As we all know, 2009 will not be any better than 2008 when it comes to securing employment. I have decided to try to broaden my networking efforts by joining this forum and sharing my successes and near misses. Hopefully, I will be able to pass on employment opportunities that were not a good fit for me but might be just what someone else has been searching for. In my 20 plus years of HR experience I have been responsible for recruiting, HRIS, performance management, and compensation both in a… Continue

Happy New Year - from the "RaisingFive Family Dance Troupe"



It's the last day of the year (as well as my 11 year old's birthday). So, I thought I'd give you a peek in to the secret lives of the Smith family...my family.



We had a different twist this Christmas to the family get-together at my in-law's house.



Each family was forewarned: "Be prepared to do a skit - sing a song - anything to make us laugh."



Well, we're certainly not short on crazy at my house, seeing how we're in the process… Continue

Ami G. on Wednesday: Recruiters get paid easy money. Why not you?

Infomercials that offer get rich schemes are nothing new. From no-money down real estate to getting rich off tiny little classifieds it is inspiring to see quadriplegic ex-truck drivers bringing home gobs of cash and everyday housewives sporting boob jobs in the Bahamas.



For sure, the economically challenged and/or recently unemployed may be tempted to buy the turn-key this and the fool-proof that.… Continue
