Many employees toyed with their résumés in full view of colleagues. Others perused job-listing Web sites — Wharton’s…

Law 3 - Conceal your Intentions (the Zen of Recruiting)

"Keep people off-balance and in the dark by never revealing the purpose behind your actions. If they have no clue what you are up to, they cannot prepare a defense. Guide them far enough down the wrong path, envelope them in enough smoke, and by the time they realize your intentions, it will be too late."

Ah, the Zen of Recruiting or better known as recruiting without recruiting. Or if you prefer, conceal your intentions...

Which is "worse" - concealing your… Continue

Writing an Effective/Compelling Online Help Wanted Ad

The most common mistake that Employers make when posting a job ad online is forgetting the medium. A big advantage of online job boards is that they allow unlimited ad text in most cases. In other words, you'll pay the same $475 on for a 200 word ad as you would for a 2000 word ad. That is not to say that you need to go hog wild on content because it's free (after all you want the job seeker to actually read what you have posted). It is to say, however, that there are some key… Continue

The Big, Bad and ugly: Who stole my candidate, and Hey I had her first...How to avoid candidate competition and Share like the big kids

Few people talk about it out loud, but it happens, we know it, Agencies know it, and here is a tip on how to avoid it.

Seems simple enough. You spend hours trying to get people interested, they apply and then 4 other corporate recruiters tag them. By the Way these recruiters are all working on your team.

Save Recruitment Dollars with increasing your Candidate's Experiences

I have to make a confession. I often get so busy with my reqs, my candidates, and my interviews, that things I learned early on in recruitment and HR have slipped. Last week I took a breath and tried to put a framework together so that I could mentor others around my success in candidate experience and relationship building. I knew I was strong in a couple of areas, but I had never connected my enjoyment of building relationships and creating an experience for all my stakeholder, with the Cost… Continue

Quick Tip on Self-image

In your own mind, how do you see yourself and what it is you are doing? Do you view yourself as a true professional with an important message (offer, idea, etc.) that your prospective audience will want to know about?
