Why Use a Recruiter in This Market???

Why use a recruiter when I’m getting piles of resumes from my ads?

In times of economic downturns companies often decide that one way to “save” money is by eliminating fees to recruiters when looking for new employees. Why shouldn’t they? After all, they post an ad online, or in the paper, and there’s a much larger stream of applicants than they’ve had in the past. “Why pay a 20% to 30% fee when I seem to be able to get plenty of people on my own?” Good question.

Ten trade show attendee rules

I attend two or more trade shows per year. Most of the work (business development, recruiting and client service) is accomplished on the telephone, of course. But there's nothing like getting out there and meeting people in person. Both candidates and clients.

You can see what's happening in the market and people can meet you. There's a wonderful, energized information exchange during the compressed time of a trade show.

Because of my concentration on companies making… Continue

Beware of Hiring Your Competitor's Sales People

Life would be grand if we could sprinkle a few seeds in the ground, fertilize, add water…and a great sales person would sprout. This is truly a pipedream, but one often pursued by small business owners and sales management executives in their quest to find great sales talent. Rather than grow their own, they attempt to steal the crops from their competitors. Why not, their competitor is much better at growing a sales organization than they are. They will grab some magic from their competitor's… Continue

Vacation At Your Office...

Well, August is upon us. Time for family vacations, time spent on the beach, bbq’s, school shopping for the kids, last minute house-cleaning before Labor Day and all those projects at home and at work that keep piling up. No time for vacation you say? Well, how about we plan a vacation at your office?

Whether it’s your home office or one that overlooks the ocean, everyone needs time to regroup, refresh and renew in order to get prepared for the next season. Some of us feel in order… Continue

If You See a Faded Sign by the Side of the Road that Says 15 Miles to...

If you see a faded sign by the side of the road that says 15 miles to…. Radio Shack! They have a great online store for gamers.

I have a real serious problem with companies that don’t have some type of employee referral bonus program. It’s like being asked over for dinner and having to bring the food.

So if you are one of the unfortunate recruiters stuck without an employee referral bonus program, here… Continue

Don't know what you heard about me...I'm a P.I.M.P

It's true. I am Sarah White, P.I.M.P, C.I.R, A.I.R.S, B.A and every other thing that ever came along that I can tag onto the end of my name. Over the last few weeks there have been some lengthy discussions amongst my tweeple (those are my people on twitter) about the value of certifications in our industry. I have also gotten calls from people asking me to discuss new certifications they are coming up with. Apparently, now that I have a blog, some… Continue

Fee split agreements

Do you paper your deal with a written split agreement or do you rely upon the recruiters' Code?

Position Specifications

Does it really take that much time to write out a job description? There are many jobs available in this recession, yet many recruiters are not investing the time to craft a strong message and detail the skills that they are seeking. How are they explaining the opportunities adequately to the candidate pool so that they aren't wasting their time?

Four Key Steps to Develop Future Leaders

The changing demographics of our country have been making headlines. As the population ages and baby boomers begin to retire, labor shortages seem imminent and in some cases, potentially catastrophic. Most of the forecasts focus on a dwindling pool of applicants for entry level positions. However, leading edge health care organizations also have to be able to replace key leaders with little interruption to the business.

A number of hospitals and health networks are turning to… Continue

Stop Playing the Feedback Waiting Game

Whew – you’ve reviewed the applicant list and you have narrowed it down to the cream of the crop. The next step is to send the information to the hiring manager(s) for review.

Do you:

- Manually compile the applicant data, and send the information to the hiring manager via fax or email

Perfection – and why it’s useful (sometimes)

You know your job board or career site isn’t perfect, right? (And if you don’t, I’m sure you can find someone that will tell you that). In fact, perfection can be pretty annoying, particularly when it manifests itself as a ‘rule’ or ‘mandate’.

But…perfection has its place. Let me explain.

A job board (or honestly, any decent web site) is never ‘done’. It’s always a work in progress. You add that job seeker forum you always wanted – and now you need a Twitter feed. But what… Continue

Maybe those brainless single-celled blobs have it right after all...

It certainly has been a while since I've done any active posting, and while I've enjoyed taking in some of the posts and discussions as a lurker figured it is about time I put something out there of my own again.

Over the past couple of months there have been a couple of big wins and some equally disappointing mishaps. Oddly enough, I find myself crediting and blaming the same thing in both instances...the process. My recruiting team has a very well-defined process by which a manager… Continue
