Building a Sourcing Strategy: Retail / Manufacturer

For the fun of it, I want to provide a variety of insights around how a sourcing strategy may vary by industry. For the sake of this example, let’s assume you are a manufacturer of a product that is sold through a retail distribution

chain. Additional assumptions are:

1. You sell product to big box retailers, however you have your own retail outlets

2. Holidays drive an increase in labor needs within your…

3 Fundamentals of Recruiting

Recruiters, let me tell you something. We’ve lost the basics of recruiting. It’s been replaced with idealistic disillusioned recruitment methods. The problem with most Recruiters is that we get some social media knowledge. A little info or a nugget and we become experts overnight. The fact is, you don’t know what the hell you are talking about. None of us do. That’s why were frickin’ recruiters to begin with.

Recruiting is not rocket science. In fact, it’s very simple. It’s finding… Continue

It's 4/20... puff, puff, give (equal pay and opportunity to women)

You know what that means, right?

It's Equal Pay Day. (Please, you know I didn't mean that that 4/20)

Today is the day - we're told - that "symbolizes how far into 2010

women must work to earn what men earned in 2009"

Akin to "Tax Day" (the day you supposedly have to work until you make enough

Don't Be That Interviewee

Having been technical recruiters for over a decade, we’ve heard more feedback than a sound engineer for a metal band. From interviewees wearing sweatpants to people getting up to use the bathroom and never returning, we’ve heard it all. And, that’s the inspiration for our “Don’t be that interviewee”…

The Art of Simplicity as Taught by a Random Pedestrian

This morning I watched an older woman with a walker make her way down the sidewalk. Her movements were very deliberate and it was clear that her limbs would no longer cooperate to move her with any urgency or speed. In fact she shuffled more than she walked – it was the best she could muster.

What I found fascinating though was the effortless manner in which she used the walker. With each step forward on her right foot…

Know a site that needs an extreme job board makeover?

The formula for the extremely popular reality series “Extreme Home Makeover” is simple and compelling: find a family (or sometimes an individual) who have done good works in their community but have been beaten up by bad luck luck; add the Extreme Home Makeover crew and local supporters; create a new home for the family. All in the space of 7 days.

So why can’t we apply that to the job board world? Well, in fact, we can. I don’t have the resources (or sex appeal) of Ty, but I do know… Continue

What Type of Twitterer Are You?

After being on Twitter for some time, most people quickly discover that there are several different types of Twitterer. I thought it would be fun to categorize these users into complete arbitrary groups for those that are having trouble placing them.

Whilst new technology is great, are we paying the price socially? (or how, once it's gone, you can never get that time back)

There's no getting away from it, every day we're becoming more and more obsessed with technology. Whilst it is great and clearly the way to go for the modern day recruiter on the go, I am starting to think too much of it can, at the relatively harmless end (apart from the risk of an iphone becoming your best friend rather than your dog or partner) zombify people, and, at its worst, put you in danger.

At the harmless end of things, take my… Continue
