JobDeck by the people that brought you Twitter

So by the people who brought you Twitter, we get JobDeck. A portal that brings all the jobs that are twittered about to one place. But how good is this product really? Well I used it several times to do searches and get an idea how to use it and how well it works. I found it did a decent job of sorting out all the tweets and only bringing the ones that appeared to be jobs matching my criteria to me. But to me it is like any SEO. The biggest…

Hiring Managers do not understand recruiting

As a rule most hiring managers do not understand recruiting. They think all we do is look at Monster or Hotjobs (which was just bought by monster) or the other databases and find people with no problems. They do not understand the amount of work that goes into the sourcing part of recruiting. One way I have found that has helped me educate the hiring manager, is to arrange sourcing sessions with them. Make an appointment to meet with them and talk about the opening and source. You will be…

The State Of The Recruiting Industry

From my perspective as a consultant to the executive search and recruiting industry, there is a trend taking shape, and if you don’t position yourself to be in front of it then you are going to lose out on potential opportunities.

The third party recruiting landscape has changed forever. Call it a ‘correction’ if you will, but I don’t predict that our industry will ever achieve the robust status that it once had. Those days are gone and probably gone forever. Many in years past said… Continue

Get involved with our Industry

If you ever want to renew your passion for our industry, all you have to do is get involved with one of your local service award committees.

This past Monday and Tuesday I spent the days working with the Calgary White Hat awards. The White Hats are awarded for service excellence in many various categories and you must be nominated (either by your employer, co-worker, guest or anyone whom you have had a positive impact on) to be eligible. I should also mention that this award is for… Continue

Consultants have always been rewarded on feedback – since the day the business was launched 17 years ago – and we always look for consultants with who have compassion, a real interest in people and a…

Thanks to Twitter one of our own got published in the February issue of Candian HR Reporter!

Our very own Andrea Duggan became a published author this week with the appearance of her blog post entitled “What employers can learn from the Jay Leno – Conan O’Brien succession plan!” Why did she become a published author? Well a lot of the credit goes to Twitter and our social networking initiatives around the 2010 HRPA Annual Conference in Toronto, Canada. Someone once called Twitter a serendipity engine because of the interesting people, connections and opportunities that come about… Continue

Being recognized by your community is a great feeling!

These days it seems there's not a lot to celebrate. Having lived the life of an entreprenuer for 20 plus years I know the ups and downs of building your own business. It often means long hours and late nights only to run up against a tough economy which means more long hours and more late nights! To get through these long hours entrepreneurs tend to draw on a firm belief in themselves but they also draw on the inspiration of others who have succeeded before them. I've often strengthened my… Continue

The Ugly Truth Why Recruiters Are Horrible At Finding Work.

You know what? Recruiters suck at finding themselves work. We give out great job hunting advice to complete strangers but the ugly truth is that we struggle finding a job too.

Every time I tell somebody I’m a Recruiter, they want help finding a job. And there I am with arms crossed listening attentively while they prattle about job prospecting hardships.

Yet, the sick sad reality if I lost my job, I’d do the same thing every unemployed Tom, Dick and…
