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

Feedback Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Recruiters crave feedback during the interview process, and why not? As contingency recruiters we are always accessing where our energies and efforts have taken us on a recruiting project and deciding if we need to continue recruiting, move towards an offer between both parties or simply move on to a new project altogether. However, most people mistakenly assume that feedback is only for the recruiter’s benefit when in reality it should be a prime concern for both the company and the candidate… Continue

How to make candidates believe your employment brand

If there's one thing I've learned about employment branding in reality, it's that an employment brand alone really won't get you anywhere.

You might have your ad agency put together a fancy ad that resembles the key points of your employment brand and has imagery that encompasses the culture of your company. But even that only gets you so far.

There comes a point in a candidate's experience of your employment brand's message that they either buy into and believe your… Continue

Hiring Roulette

Among the all-time debates with no answers such as: nature or nurture; chicken or egg and of course DiMaggio or Mays there remains the nagging one of hiring or retention.

What is tougher, making a good hiring decision or retaining "A" players once you find them? These are issues that probably have been studied, surveyed, poked and prodded by more organizations than have sworn off applicant matching systems, attitude surveys and exit interviews… Continue

FEEDBACK and Grains of Salt

I like to see myself as an open person, willing to try things, willing to take feedback on board, give it a try.

When I was younger and not as confident, I would take things said to me as gospel, especially as I moved into a Corporate environment, where coming from the Agency world I did feel like a fish out of water initially. I was probably treated that way too, you know, a Agency Recruiter in an HR world. I was viewed with suspicion. Too Salesy to fit within the HR world. Feedback… Continue

Did Someone Tweet They Needed A Job?

RecruiterGuy on Twitter I find Twitter fascinating. I see it as many different things ranging from a search engine to an instant messaging device to a blogging platform to a time suck. And while these are just a few of the things that I myself have used it for - I love them all.

One of the first things recruiters have been struggling to understand since it's release is if… Continue

Leading in adversity. Your toughest test yet

Trust me on this. You have never had a test of your leadership until you have managed a recruitment business through a recession.

It’s beyond tough. Balancing falling revenues while trying to retain key staff. Communicating critical fee generation targets while at the same time not “spooking” the troops and leaving people depressed and panicky. And then there is the myriad of decisions about cost control, pricing levels, and strategy.

Really, who would want to be running a… Continue

Credit Inquiries for the Jobless - Insanity

This is absolutely insane:

The New York Times reported that companies are now using credit checks to narrow down a pool of candidates - you're kidding me, right? I understand for finance positions, government jobs and other positions that would require stellar credit, but for data entry clerks and personal trainers? Give me a break!

It is hard enough in today's economy for people to find a job opening, stand out enough to get noticed with a cover… Continue
