How to Make Piles of Cash in the Magical Land of Social Media Recruiting.

Once upon a time there was a magical land where Recruiters made heaps and piles of cash. Pit rooms, placement bells, residual commissions and 400% mark ups grew on every tree. Every day was sunny and every resume was perfect. Every submittal was a fit too, no questions. Then one day….

Depression 2.0 occurred.

We Recruiters couldn’t pay for afford Starbucks and were…

Great hires / bad hires: how to tell the difference BEFORE you make the offer

You hire someone. They don’t work out. They leave. What is it that you remember and say about them in the past tense? It’s rarely the fact that they didn’t know how to work the numbers, or that they couldn’t put the pieces of a widget together. No, it’s almost always their soft skills that generate conversation—their personality, character and values.

Two recent scenarios from my personal experience serve as good examples: A multi-generation family-run, team-oriented company in… Continue

Pick Up the Dang Phone (and take it to the bank).

At the risk of starting a blizzard of spitballs and chewing gum wads, I'm going to bring up a touchy subject. Why the heck not? I never won a popularity contest, was never voted class president (or class anything), and had to invite my own date to my prom. Hell, when I was a kid, even my mother sold my favorite blouse at a garage sale for ten cents.

Ever know when people screen their calls? You just never seem to connect, but the voicemail doesn't pick up…

Create a Shared Culture as Part of Your Overall Talent Management Strategy

Health care leaders need to employ patience and persistence if they're going to create a beneficial, shared culture in a growing system.


Health care systems with a strong culture ensure that their environment is represented in all of its offices or operations. To achieve this, the organization must apply and measure the same processes, policies and rules throughout the field. If there is a significant variance, then the culture will not be seen as important or a… Continue

Don't pee in your own Pool

Customer Service is an amazing thing. Something which seems so easy and straight forward, you're helpful, friendly and essentially do as you say, providing a service.


This may seem petty to some, but this really got my blood boiling the other day. My 5 year old son was awarded an encouragement award at the local football club a few weeks ago (OK they all get them, but it didn't quell the pride, father and son both felt as he picked up his award.) The award, a… Continue

Can the Social Networking Save the World?

To me the internet is the shining light on the economic horizon. I see it opening up so many doors. This world of social networking is amazingly powerful. That fact that people from all over the world can connect and relate is wonderful. I think we are on the edge of some remarkable changes where the "little guys" voice and influence can effect great changes.

Win a Close Encounter to RecruitFest '09

I can't go to Recruitfest this year on September 23rd and 24th, and I'm pissed. It has the unfortunate fate of falling in a month that contains two of my kids' birthdays, my anniversary, my Shriner initiation, and a guest spot on The View. Plus the fact that I'm helping to put on the first ever TalentNet Live Expo here in Dallas to coincide with…

Why would you want this person working for you in the first place?

(I initially posted this at, but thought some people at RecruitingBlogs might enjoy it too.)

Cleaning up my inbox, I found my letter of resignation from my previous job. Some might wonder, what the hell was I thinking?

Keep in mind that I liked the job, was good friends with my boss (and still am), and was on very good terms with the company... oh, and I… Continue

RecruitFest! 09 How I made 50,000 from going last year.

RecruitFest! 2009

It makes me smile every time I post that.

I was very tentative about going last year. It would make my 4th conference in as many months and that seemed a bit hard to justify just from a time off perspective, let alone the costs involved. Working for myself means that I have to really think hard about where and when to spend money. So for me, a trip to Toronto was in place of a vacation to Europe or Jamaica.…

The real work of job hunting in this new employment market, Networking, Networking and more networking.

Anyone who has entered the job market in the last 6 -10 months knows that the market and the job hunting process is vastly different then the last time they experienced it and unfortunately recruiters that many people have depended on in the past for advice are no more educated in the new methods and process of the job hunt than they are. It is not really the recruiters fault since in this new job market they are no longer one of the most important factors in the successful job search and they… Continue

How do you handle the dreaded salary question? Here is how.

In an interview you will be asked two questions about compensation. If you do not handle them correctly it will be the end of the interview process or cost you a lot of money.

The first question is about earnings history. “What are you earning or what did you earn in your most recent job”?The second question is about your required compensation. “What do you need “? “What are you looking for”?

I have seen lots of bad advice on LinkedIn and other sites about these questions.… Continue

Fancy Recruiting... With the Basics in Mind.

iPhone I'm passionate about a few things... My family, my work, and not being bored. So it's important to me that I try to do everything I can to keep things fresh and exciting... to really push every aspect of the things I like so that they're always at their best - or most productive. One of the things that I think are important under the banner of family is my health.

So I'm back into my rhythm at the gym. Trying out new things and making sure that I'm not on any specific or… Continue
