I so agree that we have to understand how vulnerable people are when they put themselves 'out there', so-to-speak. One thing I do with my candidates when I have to deliver nebulous feedback is to give a relationship analogy. Relationships - dating/interviewing, etc., are about chemistry - if it doesn't click, it is not the fault of either party, but simply an unexplainable feeling. When I explain disinterested feedback in that way, people seem to take it… Continue

At their core, most job boards are series of one-way communications: employer posts a job; job seeker responds to employer; employer does (or doesn’t) respond to job seeker. Each communication is distinct and separated by both time and method – some might even say fragmented.
Compare to a blog, social networking site, or Twitter: you send out a communication – and built into your communication are methods for readers to respond, as well as the expectation they will; readers DO… Continue

Okay, Okay, I know that I have not posted in the last couple of weeks. In my experience, blogging is something that you need to get into the habit of doing and once you do it regularly, you will enjoy it. If you don't do it regularly, then you find it hard to start again!
I have experienced a couple of similar scenario's recently.
Last winter, when I started working at a regular office again, within 2 miles from home, I was… Continue

Sunday night you gear up for Monday. Packed the computer - check. Car keys are in place - check. Employee Badge in purse - check. We plan and schedule the most important meetings beginning of the week so we can then plan on spending the latter part of the week "catching up".
Mondays are always buzzing around with people chugging down coffee by the gallons asking others what they did over the weekend. Then comes Wednesday, hump day, and things… Continue

Recruiting is a highly competitive sport. All external recruiters reach for the top, hoping to become finally recognized as a Gold Recruiter.
Recruiting is probably not much of a team sport, based on my observations from a corporate HR desk. Perhaps it is a function of the general reward system, with commissions linked to placement. Perform well and you get paid well.
The competition suggests there are a lot of recruiters. Entry levels are relatively low. This is evident… Continue

If you are a recruiter, and even if you are a star recruiter, make sure that you dont do the below mentioned mistakes as part of your recruitment process. They are criminal and not excusable. Just because your time to fill and cost to fill metrics are good does not mean that you can get away messing up with the process and system.
1. Not entering the data into the Applicant Tracking System.
Lot of so called star recruiters hide behind the excuse that data entry is too tedious… Continue

I had to share this with you all. Recruiter.co.uk
has just ran a main feature about PeopleMaps' new product.
It talks about how Employers are able to receive unlimited access to a free online psychometric profiling service from PeopleMaps.
Now that's a very cool idea, don't you think?

(Originally posted on ImSoCorporate.com)
When I was a little kid, I dreamed of climbing the corporate ladder in my pinstripe suit and stiletto heels. I wanted nothing more than to be toughest, no nonsense attorney in a top law firm and live in a high rise apartment in Manhattan with my CEO husband and our glamorous life of jet setting weekends to Europe and dinner parties with the other fabulous people.
Well, at least that is who I wanted to play on TV. You see,… Continue

I write a lot from the Recruiter point of view, but I had one of those weeks, which changed my mindset for a while.
I've had to make a number of calls to unsuccessful candidates. As a job to do... that sucks.. but you know what?.. I'm sure it doesn't suck as much as taking the call.
Going for a job is a brave thing to do. You're putting yourself out there to be judged by others. Baring your soul, putting your future in someone else's hands to decide on. Like those people… Continue

are extremely valuable hiring tools with today’s growing desire for instant information and dependency on networking. Facebook and LinkedIn fulfill the networking dependency. Twitter is better for delivering instant information.
