Originally posted on

Recently I responded to a Twitter post and the ensuing replies reminded me that I wanted to write about this topic before now - how do you treat your candidates at the end of the process? Would you want to receive the same treatment if you were in a job search?

I recently had a company terminate a placed candidate 7 days after the 60 day guarantee expired. They first asked for a full refund (28K), then have asked to negotiate or no longer work with the company.

I have been on the other end of this situation and they expect the refund without any question.

Any thoughts???

The World of Sourcing, According to a Recruiter

(By iCIMS Blogger, Annie Hartman)

Sourcing can mean a few different things in an organization, depending on your function. For example, some may immediately think of procurement. However, to a corporate recruiter, a sourcer, or sometimes also called a researcher, is a strategic member of the recruitment team who partners with a full life-cycle recruiter and whose job is to proactively find…

Cranky Recruiter: Sense of Urgency or Wasting my Time

I was thinking about putting this up on my career advice blog for job seekers--but thought it was better for my fellow recruiters. Hope you can relate

A few days ago I was talking to a man who was referred to me by a social media friend. He was interested in having me help him find a job. We spoke about his background, and possible jobs.

His background was not similar to positions I recruit on regularly so I gave him a little advice about who he should contact for jobs. I… Continue

Where to Start in Social Recruiting

"If you could only have one social network to use as your main tool in recruiting, which one would it be?"

I was on a Dinner with the panel, keynotes, and Jobing Product Manager Brett Farmiloe (@thatpassionguy) panel for's Spring Symposium with some colleagues,…

Helicopter Management - Are You Holding Your People Back?

We all know about helicopter parents – those nuts who start off doing their kids' homework and end up filling out their job applications – but what about helicopter managers? I don’t mean micro-managers who follow their team members around breathing down their necks. I mean the supervisors who fail to realize that it’s their job to develop the leadership skills of their staff; who hold onto every task that requires collaboration or decision making for themselves rather than… Continue

How a Big Girl Pill can make you Better at Your Job.

Sometimes things don’t go the way you expected them to. The time, effort and personal investment we put into something that simply ended in nothing more than a simple “that’s it” in the story of life can be an emotional toll. The high you ride when things are great and moving along in the right direction often opens its way to a melancholy state of contentment where you are sure they are moving still – but not sure if its the direction you want to be headed until the anti-climatic end to things… Continue

Quotas: The Messy Truth

As a recruiter, you've more than likely run into a hiring situation that involved a quota.

Whether you support the idea of hiring quotas or not - they are a lightening rod issue. The problem they try to solve is legit: the representation of minorities, and in some cases, women, pale in comparison to the population at large in a given community. The way in which hiring quotas attempt to solve the problem is one of the more debatable practices in the… Continue

Work your ATS like a Rib Bone

Being a Native Texan, I have eaten my share of ribs and I can tell you that they are one of the more expensive items at your local BBQ establishment. So, when I order them, I make sure I get all the meat off of them. With that being said, there is no easy way to segue from a discussion of Ribs to Applicant…

Social Recruiting: Evolution or Revolution?

While considering how best to categorize Social Recruiting, I began to consider, “Is this new trend: revolutionary or evolutionary?” For some, using social media tools for recruiting is simply a natural evolution. Whereas, other believe that it is a revolutionary change.


From sharing job postings with your network to finding prospective candidates on Twitter to blogging about the job search, proponents of revolution argue that while recruiting has…
