Mo's Sweet Sixteen

Okay, so she's not 16 (perhaps a multiple but as one who is also a multiple of - I can say these things) but it's still her birthday. Who?

Amy Beth may be a Princess (fine, a Goddess) but Happy Birthday to the real Queen of Sourcing.

Are you one? Are you two? Are you... Whew, I'm tired already!

Selling Jobs With Honesty ( A Radical Suggestion, I Know ...)

The best person to sell a new job to a candidate is the one who is actually doing the job right now. Selling by brochure, by company values, or by marketing material is simply less effective.

Instinctively we all agree with this, but how do we know it is true?. Surely there is value to selling the company hard, and creating some excitement about the position. Well, there is actual research to back the idea that an honest approach is the best approach.

The psychological… Continue

Smart Recruiter Yet Brilliant Recruiter?

A brilliant yet (smart) recruiter goes beyond the obvious in qualifying not only the candidate(s) but the client(s) as well. Where some recruiters fall short is in not truly knowing both the client and candidate to make the deal happen.

Now please understand that not all clients and candidates are truthful in acceptance and intentions and/or other offers, etc; now some clients don’t like to share other candidates skill sets (ranking in better qualified candidates) in the process. A… Continue

Stopping recruiting now makes no sense at all - a TV metaphor

ABC, NBC and Fox all drawing around a million viewers less each night than they did last season. CBS is the one network that has improved from last season, up 1% in viewership.

Yet advertisers are still plowing money into… Continue

Why am I a "smart recruiter"?

Because I understand that in order to play the games I like to play, drive the truck (yes - truck) I like to drive and live like I enjoying living - I must ring the cash register.

Yes - I have said it. It isn't about getting along or wanting the best for everyone!

It is about ringing the cash register.

Making the sale - sending the invoice and cashing the check.

I don't like to be told what to do - therefore - must be self employeed.

I like the finer… Continue

What makes me a Smart Recruiter

I believe the following things make me a Smart Recruiter;

1. HIGH SELF ESTEEM The glass is always half full? I believe that outcomes will be positive and are confident of success rather than to look for excuses for failure?

2. BELIEF IN WHAT WE DO¬ – Many people in the business feel we’re “putting something over” on hirers when a deal comes together. All that money for making a few phone calls. If they aren’t convinced that we’re worth what we charge, they’ll be… Continue

What are some contract/temp companies out there that partner w/ Recruiters?

I am inquiring of companies out there that partner with recruiters to work on contract jobs together. I have come across a few that will do all the payroll work on their end and the recruiter that passes them the contract/temp fill receives a cut of the weekly payout to the candidate. Would like to hear about more of these companies out there and if need to be specific to state. I am in MA. Please email me on this.

To Journal Or Not To Journal

DALLAS, Texas (Dec. 28, 2008) -- Journaling is a trendy sort of thing. I know people who have been doing it, religiously, for years. Others started but did not stay with it. It is like a routine of physical exercise, I guess. I know others who have started after taking a journaling class. Interesting. I did not know there was a class for something like this – teaching you to write thoughts and ideas in a book.

My interest in journaling did not come from a lofty notion that I had… Continue
