Back to School Time - SEO Style

Although SEO seems to be the new buzz in recruiting web 2.0 strategies, it has actually been used for years as a tactic to increase sales for online businesses.

SEO and how it fits into the recruiting industry is greatly misunderstood. I completely agree with Marvin in that SEO is not enough , but it makes me wonder who said that it was the golden ticket to begin with.

SEO Is… Continue

Google, The parasite we have created

Webmasters hate them but to help make a little money webmasters use there google ads. We dont charge google for the ad placement . We use google ads to get less then 3% of what google actually makes on the ads. When someone clicks on the ad someone else is paying google of up to $5.00 per click depending on the keywords they have selected. Talk about scams.

The people of this country made them what they are today do you think they would give back to help webmasters .? Not a chance in hell.… Continue

Hiring Heats Up!

Hiring is heating up and I am not the only one taking notice. In a recent distribution I received from ONREC Expo 2009, the rise in hiring currently taking place was noted:

“Your organization may not be in hiring mode yet, but be advised: Your competition has either started recruiting or is making plans to add to staff.”

You will receive numerous benefits from an attendance at industry conferences such as ERE, ONREC Expo, Recruitfest, SourceCon, etc. These conferences are… Continue

Where on Earth is RecruiterGuy?

RecruiterGuy at PepsiCo Recently I've fielded quite a few emails and questions about where I'll be speaking again or which events I'd recommend. While I do not profess to be the worlds best speaker or the best judge of what events someone should or should not attend, I thought it would be easier to add a quick calendar to the site that will include both.

Obviously I was excited to speak at the… Continue

Do job applicants always tell the truth?

A common concern when hiring a candidate is whether the applicant has told the truth about various aspects of their background. It is not unlikely for applicants to feel that they are more likely to get the job if they distort their age, cover-up gaps in their work history and claim to have educational qualifications they do not actually have.

While there has been relatively little research on the accuracy of… Continue

Career Transition Companies - are they the right solution for IT Specialists?

The title of this blog is indeed the question I want to raise today. Are career transition companies (the outplacement firms that companies who are downsizing will sometimes engage to help those employees who have been, or are about to, get laid off) really offering the right solutions to IT professionals looking for work?

I had the honor of meeting with a very senior candidate recently, who is going through the career transition process. In fact, the candidate had their workshop… Continue

Increasing Returns by Understanding Talent

The VCs must ask themselves if their companies are run by management teams that are capable of driving companies as the recession eventually bottoms. Studying the shift in the current unemployment rates in the US, HireLabs can forecast a recovery in the international labor market - lead by the US - sometime around Feb 2010.

Very few CEOs of venture-backed companies have the experience of riding a company out of a recession successfully. The first sign that a management team is not… Continue

The Four Least Wanted - how to counter and neutralize poor candidate etiquette

I recently read an article written by Jonathan Littman and Mark Hershon, summarizing their new book called “I Hate You.” This comedic take on a traditional workplace self-help book shows you how to identify the “Ten Least Wanted” --the people you hate in the workplace--while revealing the strategies to neutralize them.

It got me to thinking about identifying candidates in a similar light. In uncertain and stressful times especially, people aren’t on their best behavior, and this poor… Continue
