How a Big Girl Pill can make you Better at Your Job.

Sometimes things don’t go the way you expected them to. The time, effort and personal investment we put into something that simply ended in nothing more than a simple “that’s it” in the story of life can be an emotional toll. The high you ride when things are great and moving along in the right direction often opens its way to a melancholy state of contentment where you are sure they are moving still – but not sure if its the direction you want to be headed until the anti-climatic end to things… Continue

Quotas: The Messy Truth

As a recruiter, you've more than likely run into a hiring situation that involved a quota.

Whether you support the idea of hiring quotas or not - they are a lightening rod issue. The problem they try to solve is legit: the representation of minorities, and in some cases, women, pale in comparison to the population at large in a given community.

Work your ATS like a Rib Bone

Being a Native Texan, I have eaten my share of ribs and I can tell you that they are one of the more expensive items at your local BBQ establishment. So, when I order them, I make sure I get all the meat off of them. With that being said, there is no easy way to segue from a discussion of Ribs to Applicant…

Social Recruiting: Evolution or Revolution?

While considering how best to categorize Social Recruiting, I began to consider, “Is this new trend: revolutionary or evolutionary?” For some, using social media tools for recruiting is simply a natural evolution. Whereas, other believe that it is a revolutionary change.


From sharing job postings with your network to finding prospective candidates on Twitter to blogging about the job search, proponents of revolution argue that while recruiting has…

Culture with a little C; don’t let it undermine your business

Probably the most common definition of an organization's culture is "the way we do things around here." If you're an executive describing your culture, you're most likely referring to your mission, vision and values; and your core beliefs and what they represent. Something like: "We have a culture of accountability, high quality customer service, respect for employees and a commitment to community service." And you, yourself, may exhibit and experience all of these characteristics. But what…

Double Submittals

I've seen an increasing number of double submittals lately. As the job market begins to pick up, I believe that we will see a lot more of this going on. I've received questions about the causes and solutions of this problem and wanted to take a minute to address a few of the issues surrounding this drama fest. When recruiters realize that their candidate just got double submitted, they begin to hear that "fingernails on the chalk board" sound. It's a situation that hurts both the job seeker and… Continue

The Best Offense is a Good Defense - Retaining Your Best People By Fostering a Culture of Engagement

Social Recruiting IS NOT a New Concept

I find the buzz surrounding "social recruiting" kind of amusing.

I began my recruiting career in 1994. At that time, the only "job board" was and even it was a dial-up BB. Online recruiting wasn't even a common concept yet. From 1995 to Y2K the online recruiting space exploded. Nearly every corporate environment became familiar with online recruiting through the use of job boards, primarily. Those were pretty great for a while, because they were extra hands helping to source… Continue
