I can see clearly now the rain is gone...
I have found that approach and pursuit of clients has to be done with their
needs first and foremost in my mind. And, actually, this approach is not limited to current or potential clients but also past. The economic needs of my firm or me, personally, cannot be at the forefront of an initial conversation or what interested parties first learn. I can keep a capitalistic mindset behind the… Continue

Recently, I had a candidate who was going to get an offer–it was all over but the references. And that’s where it all went wrong. We began calling to check (yes, we really do that) and two days later, only one was done. It wasn’t even a matter of them trashing my candidate…they just wouldn’t return our calls.
If your references don’t even think enough of you to call back, it doesn’t reflect well on you. It cost my candidate a job.
Choose your references wisely. The best… Continue

I used to think that Steve Rubel
was a pretty smart guy but now it seems he's just another dude taking an easy ride on the Gen Y bandwagon.
Steve says "the Attention Crash is entirely generational".
The Gen Yer's, it seems, do a far better job of coping with massive amounts of information. It's not uncommon for a lot of folks to be running Meebo with a dozen IM windows going at once, Facebooking,… Continue

In a previous blog I discussed the importance of social networking. Utilizing web 2.0 services gives recruiters the tools to source deeper than ever before, and the ability to find specialized passive candidates. This is only 50% of the equation. To fully implement the effectiveness of Facebook and Myspace it is essential to set up a "Careers Page". Creating the Careers Page offers you as a Recruiter the ability to maintain your own company job site; one that is easily adaptable and very… Continue

An interesting article came out in April about the direct relationship to high levels of testosterone and making money in the day trader profession. The day traders daily world revolves around uncertainty, high-risk, overwhelming information, reliance on instinct, and the having full knowledge that a decision can lead to euphoric wins or catastrophic losses… kinda like a recruiter.

Just know what you’re choosing. When I first learned about the law of attraction, it was from my coach Jeanna Gabellini, and it was before The Secret came out. While I highly enjoyed the movie The Secret, it was only an introduction to the work of the law of attraction; and there is a lot more to it. In my conversations with recruiters, staffing people, men and women about the job and about life; it seems, at times as if people are confused about what the law is and how to make it really work… Continue

It’s no news to any of you who recruit for a living that time kills all deals. We all know it. It is the mantra for recruiters. Why is it then that we still spend so much time explaining this concept and reiterating it to hiring managers?
Chances are, if you are really interested in that candidate, so is someone else. And at the end of the day, it’s usually going to be the player who moves the fastest to hire the person. As the candidate’s main point of contact to you, it is a… Continue

As a first-class professional in your particular industry, what is the goal in life? What is your goal in life?
For many people in the world, real meaning in life is the next vacation, career success, or stepping up the income ladder. It is a life based on pleasurable experiences.
Many a human being has toiled their whole life to gain a pleasurable lifestyle only to find a life that is empty and meaningless. You only have to watch television for one evening to discover… Continue

Social Media/Networking is great - Frankly, I like it. But there is also quite a bit to be gained from physical networking as well . . . and face-to-face networking is even more fun when it's not a card-exchanging fest and you have a chance to:
Climb a mountain. Explore the woods. Paddle a whitewater river. Sail the ocean.
Would anyone be interested in recruiters getting together to do the above . . . all the while discussing new ideas and sharing best practices? I… Continue

Another way of thinking about online community is the flow of activity across the front page of RBC. Each tidbit of conversation, each blogging broadside, each webinar, each chat are like the twinkling lights of a city as you fly over it. The faces, videos, forum postings and events indicate an ongoing set of interesting… Continue
