One of my friends found this Curriculum Vitae in a passive search. Just take a break and read this one!
Now look. I don't know what it is about recruitment agents that makes them unable to understand the phrase "I am no longer seeking work", so I have removed my CV from my website in a desperate attempt to get them to stop 'phoning me.
If you are an agent, then… Continue

Successful sourcing can be developed by adopting the best practices of successful e-recruiters.
1. Organize your research
– in the form of organized bookmarks, favorites or a notebook. Maintain research folders for associations, company profiles, financial profiles, industry resource folders, news resources and other links.
2. Use Advanced Search Options Wherever Available
- Prepare Boolean search strings ready for each type of advanced search in a search engine.… Continue

I recently challenged my recruiting team to source hard-to-find candidates from a department of a local competitor, and one of the recruiters came back with a whole roster for us...unfortunately, she slept with one of their engineers to get it. She doesn’t think it’s a big deal, but I’m really concerned about using this information under the circumstances. What do you think?
Truthfully, I think you may have… Continue

A colleague of mine Peter Sukonek, CEO of Big Gravity, a local branding firm recently wrote two articles on his blog about recession marketing. He refers to experts like Steve Abdalla and John Quelch about recession marketing. It is an excellent post and I recommend that you read it. Today I would like to expand on Peter’s article about recession marketing and how it applies to employment branding. Peter quotes John Quelch, a professor at Harvard Business School,

Is there value in the random twitterings across the globe? Are they as random as they appear? Last night I was thinking about how someone new to Twitter might just feel like they've just entered a party and walked up on a conversation that's been in progress for 20 minutes... but where no one is sober.… Continue

As some members of RecruitingBlogs.com are aware, for the past 16 years ExecuNet has run a survey focused on the executive marketplace. It is called The Executive Job Market Intelligence Report.
It is a task that each time we do it we keep asking ourselves if we have the energy to do it again. It not only takes a great deal of time to put it together, but also an enormous amount of time in analyzing the data, and this year was certainly no exception as we had over 6,000 responses -… Continue

Sometimes recruiting feels like you are high atop the Eiffel Tower with nothing but the wind blowing up your skirt and a woozy feeling when you look down...
There are good
times though. Like that one time I was using craigslist like crazy because the CEO of my company said "no" to every request I submitted for recruiting dollars, stating, "I am sure you can find a Master's Prepared Mechanical Engineer with new product… Continue

I've talked to several of my contemporaries over the past couple of weeks and the consensus was Q1 was not great for the IT Staffing business. Many of us haven't recovered from the usual drop in headcount at the end of the year and are wondering when things will start to recover. We've seen a couple of clients start to pick up and I am hopeful that Q2 isn't the disaster (maybe too strong a word - struggle?) Q1 was. I will stick with disaster personally because yesterday we were forced to cut 2… Continue

I’ve always been a big proponent of self-assessment and of constantly evaluating and reevaluating things to ensure that I’m being and doing my very best in everything I set my mind to.
There is no distinction between my professional and personal life as I truly believe this philosophy should apply to both.
In today’s world, this approach should be absolutely critical if you seek long-term success (not to mention your very professional existence as a Peak Performer in your… Continue

Yesterday, I took the family on our first trip to the beautiful new Washington Nationals ballpark, simply named for now, Nationals Park.
More on just how great of a ballpark this is in a moment...
I don't know about you, but as a Recruiter, I can spot a recruiting-related ad from a mile away. So when I enter the men's restroom after we get inside the ballpark, what's the first thing I see, you guessed it. You… Continue

Ere.net had a great article last week... Let's Revolutionize the Standard Recruiting Model. The author, Mark Bielecki, posed some interesting solutions to recruiting in a down turned economy. One possible solution was to have the client's pay the contingency recruiters a lesser fee for the qualified resumes that are submitted or interviews scheduled rather than a larger fee only when a candidate is hired. This solution would allow the recruiter to be compensated for their knowledge and efforts… Continue

In work and life it’s easy to allow yourself to become overwhelmed, which can lead to burnout if left unchecked.
