It has stayed in my thinking and has now bubbled to the top, it is an idea I have to action, something I have to make real... Only problem is... I'm not sure how to.

Whilst her points about branding, buzz marketing, purple squirrels and purple berrets left their mark. One of the points Carol… Continue

China to spend $586 Billion on infrastructure and social welfare

Can you imagine how much human capital we could create here in the US if we spent a sum equal to the recent bailout of a bunch of spoiled risk takers on technical education, literacy, housing, and wellness? On innovation and patent protection? On civility?

Imagine so much talent that recruiters would have to really sell the company and the opportunity because of competing job offers at all levels? That would separate the wheat from the chaff!

This is what… Continue

Using Assessment Tests As A Hiring Tool

Part of every sales manager’s job is to add to the team. Hire new talent. You think you know what you’re looking for: that “spark,” that intangible “it” factor, that “something about this candidate” that tells your intuition that this is the one. You do look at resumes and previous sales figures (if they have them), but you also look for personality, drive, determination, and people skills. Not exactly an exact science, is it? There’s lots of room for error. So how do you combat that… Continue

Is anyone out there?

Good Morning, all.

Following Katrina in 2005, I relocated to West Hollywood, CA with my band from New Orleans and fell into recruiting in Downtown LA; I haven't stopped playing music and placing people since, haha.

I'm new here and am looking to link up with other recruiters to expand my market intel and to help minimize delivery time for some of my tougher requirements- namely DoD clearance level positions- a huge thorn in my side. One of my other passions is helping… Continue

As the years have passed, I have found myself the career… Continue

This is an important relationship as well. Prior to the fair, advertising is key to let students know you are coming. Also take advantage of the fair packages they have and the commonly known “Career Fair Guide” that is usually separate from the normal paper or comes as an insert. This is a great way to… Continue
