I am reaching out to you personally to share something that everyone is finding quite amazing. As an HR specialist I'm sure you can appreciate the following observation...that the staffing and HR placement process has serious flaws causing serious overhead expenses to the client. What happens all to often is that a candidate is selected for a various role and after a short period of settling in either the client or the candidate is not a good fit. This candidate churn can cost… Continue

This post will be somewhat tangential in terms of the SNS line of thought, although I would like to respond/think about Ken Forrester’s blog post “Searching for the New Recruiting Model”. Ken describes a conversation with a contact about how everything is being turned upside down, and that we now have a need to reassess what constitutes a workable recruiting model.
A lot of information is… Continue

The art of the casual greeting sounds simple in terms but can be daunting (or forgotten) to some. I’ve recently coached a few candidates who were afflicted with that serious condition that I have termed to be “greeting-challenged”.
The greeting-challenged individual has trouble remembering to keep their energy up when meeting a new person. They forgot to reciprocate with questions when someone asks them how they’re doing. They omit a positive sentiment, leaving the listener amid a… Continue

1) Be flexible in what you are willing to do in the position you are applying for. 2) Don't discuss salary on the first interview. 3) Always be dressed professionally for an interview. Wear a suit (preferably navy blue, black or gray). It is always better to be as conservative as possible. 5) Ask what the company or manager is looking for in the person they will be hiring, what is important to them aside from the technical skills necessary, and what… Continue

Our careers are continually in motion. You move in real time whether you are currently employed or not. It does not always feel like you make progress as you measure your success by how much you have truly accomplished and in what period of time it took to get there. Whether you wish you could hurl yourself into the future and fast-forward your career into a more profitable time, or you could rewind it back to a place when you were perhaps at the top of your game, always remember the choice is… Continue

In my last post I spent some time worrying about whether adopting new SNS based technologies was really worth the trouble, and if it wouldn’t be better to sort of temper our acceptance of the technology with a need to preserve some of the more traditional ways of developing a professional network. With that in mind, I have laid out a few points to keep in mind when attempting to integrate… Continue

It is clear that the current recruitment market is a tough place to be at the moment. Over the last 10 years, the £26bn UK industry has been saturated by small entrepreneurial businesses looking for a slice of the action. The vast majority of the smaller agencies owners, by which I mean a business with less than 15 employees, would have started life with a larger agency where they… Continue

We were manipulated for about 150 years, beginning from old man Chéret through advertising, propagandizing comfort and carelessness. But we have absolutely forgotten about one thing, that sooner or later- we will have to pay for everything! People have convinced of prudence of crediting. And we did it. We took credits which we weren’t capable to pay even for one lifetime. The mortgage – became norm! All the world is under the credit. And here when the crediting world standards began to fall… Continue

As a traffic cop, I’ve seen quite a few automobile accidents involving cars speeding through red lights. So when our police department was charged with the task to study the feasibility of using traffic cameras, I was all for it. Studies have shown that the red-light cameras act as a deterrent and the rate of accident due to people running red lights were reduced by asmuch as 30%. That is a significant improvement. Imagine the number of lives that these cameras have… Continue

I love twitter for a lot of reasons. I'm happy that I am alive in the same era that twitter arrived in because I love it that much. What I love the most about twitter though is how it works and how it enables a lot of possibilities and how it works with job distribution but the great thing is that twitter works I think with almost everything.

I know I’m going to lose a few buddies right out the gate when I say this, but women can kick our ass when it comes to remembering things. It’s true. Research has shown women are able to dig stuff up from the vault and dish it out in a nano second. Us guys struggle to remember what happened last night.
But if you’re on Twitter, you know there is crap load of links that are thrown your way daily. How many times have you clicked on those links and tried to remember where they were… Continue

In the past couple of posts I have spent some time pondering how SNS can/will be incorporated into recruiting efforts. I looked at how Asurion Mobile Application’s AddressBook might integrate with an ATS, such as Jobvite. Both are focused on making use of and managing SNS based efforts, and therefore offer a way to capitalize on those technologies.
So at this point I feel the need to play devil’s… Continue

Thank you for spending the time to conceive and prepare your resume. The multiple-colored fonts, 24-point type and boldly framed five pages documenting your experiences have, indeed, caught my eye. In addition, I appreciate your sleuthing skills in having found my contact information, and I remain impressed by your initiative to leave me five voicemail messages this week.
Unfortunately, the hiring manager with whom I am working has already selected a… Continue

So far we have discussed why you should develop a recruitment strategy, corporate and third party sourcing and recruiting. Now that you know how you will source candidates, how will you store their resumes? In this blog RecruiterGuy discusses Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).
To define applicant tracking systems in their simplest terms, they are an automated system that allows you to store resumes and candidate information, retrieve resumes, candidate process tracking, and develop… Continue
