Liposuction and resume databases

Liposuctioning unwanted blubber out of pampered Los Angelenos may not seem like a dream job, but it has its perks. Free fuel is one of them.

"The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel--and I have more fat than I can use. Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly but they get to take part in saving the Earth."

This plastic surgeon is… Continue

What makes me a Smart Recruiter

"Know your client & your clients business & ethics and be part of their company" I find this has always worked and the trust that you develop stands you outside of the normal recruitment box

What makes me a Smart Recruiter

Based on my agency background, here are my top five reasons:

1. Resiliency – When you are a third-party recruiter (TPR), issues arise and you must be solutions-focused to move forward and recover quickly. Anticipate all possible scenarios in the hiring process and do not react emotionally.

2. Continuous learning – We are very lucky to have so many leaders and experts in our field (especially on - shameless plug) that willing to… Continue

What makes me a smart recruiter?

What makes me a Smart Recruiter? makes me a smart recruiter and all of you make me a smart recruiter. Let’s face it, we all share somewhat of the same drive and attributes as recruiters. Some just succeed a little more than others.

So what makes me different? Honestly, not much. But one day oh probably a little more than a year ago, I had some great conversations with some guy who had a vision. A vision to create a home for recruiters like you and I. A home where… Continue

What makes me a smart recruiter

What makes me a smart recruiter......

1. I realize this is a game of "finding" not "creating".

A lot of recruiters pay lip service to the old "round hole, square peg" line about the business, but only the ones who get it know deep down that this is a game of finding, not creating. There is a right job for every person and a right person (or more appropriately, right persons) for every job. I drive my business by focusing on finding the right fit, not trying to make what I… Continue

Small Firms Can Compete Overseas

JohnMarch Partners, a boutique healthcare search consultancy based in downtown Dallas, was awarded multiple search assignments by a UAE firm working under contract with the UAE government. We beat out several of the major firms for this assignment. Not only is the work very profitable, there is a good possibility that our academic practice will pick up related assignments.

How did we get the engagement? Believe it or not, it was not that hard. And the account acquisition costs were… Continue

Why I am a Smart Recruiter...

I just love creative license! Five reasons why I'm a smart recruiter:

1. I listen (no, really listen) until I can visualize myself doing the job

Why I Am A SMART Recruiter - Most of the Time..

The decision to start my own firm. This gave me the freedom to make a boatload of mistakes (and not get fired), but it also allowed me to innovate in terms of creating a rigorous candidate screening process and comprehensive dossiers with video summaries of my candidate interviews. Established search firms, like most established businesses, are not willing innovators.

That is one reason...

However, here is the truth: I am a smart recruiter because I have a great… Continue

What makes me a Smart Recruiter

This is an interesting contest, and since it is pretty random who will win anyway, it will be fun to see what everyone else thinks about themselves! :)

1. My motto is: "It is not just about who you know, but how well you keep in touch with them". I live by this motto, and more recently this has proven extremely important with my recent lay off and job search (as well as soul search). You… Continue

Thanks for everything, we're laying you off. Merry Christmas! (Days 7-14)

See the previous post to this series here.

So here we go! I have met with some fantastic organizations this past week. So far, as predicted, all have come from networking. I have received about 3 phone calls from the job boards this past week, but after calling me, the lower ranges of income that seem to be prevalent here in Utah came up within minutes of starting the conversation. As a result we… Continue
