How Do You Treat Rejected Candidates?

HRMToday has a very interesting and amusing story about a rejected candidate that was eventually hired and became a star player. It’s a great anecdote and reminder of a couple things:

1. We reject too easily.

2. We always benefit by treating people well.

The big question is really this: How do you treat rejected candidates? And can it be done in such a way that diminishes the negative… Continue

This blog is like every other except...

I am sitting here thinking about writing another blog, as I am trying to build awareness around my company Shift BPM. I have been in the recruiting industry for many years and I have plenty of staffing and consulting information I can give, and I will. But I realized that as I am reading everyone's blogs, most of them have one thing in common the personal information. Now I am not saying I want to tell all here and give you my life's story, but couldn't it be said that relating life to… Continue

Interviewing your next boss

The 90’s have come and gone, but most people are now keenly aware that candidates interview their potential companies now as much as the companies interview them, and from where I stand the next evolution in the interview process will be candidate’s beginning to truly interview their future boss.

Let’s face it you can like the company and your co-workers, but there is no bigger influence on your day to day happiness, and impact on your career progression than that of the person to… Continue

Sales Candidates: Don’t bury the BS on your resume…

A Bachelor of Science degree (major in Chemistry, Biology, Molecular, etc.) is not necessary, but it is helpful in medical sales, clinical diagnostics sales, laboratory sales, DNA products sales, sales of medical or surgical supplies, medical device sales, pharmaceutical sales, or any healthcare sales. So don’t bury it at the bottom of your resume where I have to search for it. Candidates who don’t have a BS try to hide that fact in various ways, but if you have yours, display it proudly. (But… Continue

Blogging with Candidates

Obviously we've all blogged before as anyone reading this is a member of recruiting blogs. Blogging has been great for me so far for sharing insight between recruiters or posing questions to other experts. What about blogging with your candidates? I've tried to back door it where I go onto an ASCE blogging site, but they're usually not open to recruitment topics there and instead are talking about the safety hazards of the Aurora bridge, etc. ( I recruit civil engineers).

Recently,… Continue

Your Voice Mail Message: Is it a Job Search Don’t?

A great deal of job interview and career advice focuses on preparing a well-written resume, dressing for success, and the do's and don'ts of job interview questions. However, it is also very important to pay attention to other factors that might impact whether or not prospective employers are likely to view you as a good job candidate.

One of the most important, and most often overlooked, aspects of preparing for a job search is actually related to your telephone. Most home and cell… Continue

Want to Improve Your Employment Prospects? Learn a Second Language

As technology becomes more and more advanced, it seems like the world is getting smaller and smaller. The phrase "global economy" is mentioned in the media quite a bit, and it does accurately describe the 21st Century marketplace. Conducting business across international borders is becoming commonplace in just about every industry there is.

As businesses engage in strategic planning to capitalize on the global marketplace, their plans partially revolve around hiring a workforce that… Continue

Where do YOU live?

"Gaining the balance and balancing the gain" has become somewhat of a mantra for me. The most difficult part of being a spouse, mother/father, daughter/son, sister/brother, friend, recruiter, sales manager, business partner, writer, actor, director, or student is learning to balance all the things you get to do, all the things you need to do, and all the things you want to do. An old friend used to say things like, "I get to mow the lawn today," or "I get to go home and make dinner now."… Continue

Dream Candidates Really Do Exist!!

As I was preparing for my upcoming week, I got an email that made my world. My very first dream candidate has materialized before my virtual eyes.

This candidate isn't a dream candidate because he attended a top 15 law school. He isn't a dream candidate because he graduated from this top law school with excellent grades. Nor is he a wonderful candidate because he went to work for one of the most prestigous law firms in New York. Although the credentials are enough to make most… Continue
