Taming this 500-pound gorilla is the big problem that should be addressed, not seeing more candidates who won’t get hired by anyone. From this cynical perspective, here are some ideas on how to tame your personal gorillas:

From Christmas luxuries to true love, the internet now professes to be an in-house, at-your-fingertips solution for almost anything.

Dave Staats loves these calls.

HR Director from a company we’ve had no relationship with in the past called about 2 of our people leaving too many messages for their people. I got a 13-minute lesson on “After you try a certain number of times and get no response you should know they are not interested.”

Great and clever phone sourcing tip included in this… Continue

Claudia Help!



I have noticed more and more candidates blurring the lines of business and social networking online. Here’s a recent example that almost caused me to lose a client: one of my candidates sent a LinkedIn request to a hiring manager before her interview. Both the HM and I thought that was odd, but we thought it was just over-enthusiasm. She didn’t stop there though; she invited the CEO to connect as…

Impressive company names on resumes

Had a discussion this morning with a friend about the names of companies on a resume, specifically technical resumes. He took the viewpoint that having a known name on a resume is a career plus; my view is that this can only be determined knowing who is reading the resume.



Recruiters, I believe, latch on to high profile names like GE, Pepsi, or JP Morgan that appear on resumes and immediately develop a positive value assessment of the person irrespective of the content and… Continue
