I might piss off a lot of Recruiters here, but who cares.
Recruiters can’t be trusted. Right up there with Car Salesmen and boiler room Stock Brokers, we are some of the slickest back hand dealing corporate raiders in all the land.
We are the group of scoundrels at every convention trying to collect candidates.
We are the ones standing at the elevator handing out business cards.
We are the ones writing blogs on how to circumvent gate… Continue

The view from the air of Santa Cruz in a helicopter is quite stunning. It enlightens the mind to think that when you have a challenge, there is nothing a little view of the horizon can't do to hit you back in your stride again.
That was a year ago. My wife and I won a helicopter trip, found a new perspective as we looked down on the earth below.
I look back on this past year of 2009, it has been it's own soul searching… Continue

Having the technical competencies necessary to perform a job function seems to be a pretty universally accepted requirement in order to be considered a viable candidate. However, it is perhaps equally important what the personality and attitude are in the package-deal that is a new hire. With more and more companies adopting behavioral or corporate culture-based interviews it seems the trend is to hire based on soft skills as well. The only question is, what makes a person a good fit for a… Continue

Ever spend much time thinking about that? What’s your purpose?
What does that have to do with your career? Everything!

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) are an effective way to post positions, organize candidates and streamline the hiring process. For many HR professionals, ATSs are typically their first experience with new talent management solutions. In my experience, once the value of the ATS has been recognized, there is a spark of consideration for new features, benefits and values that opens up the potential for investing in additional talent management solutions. The question then becomes “where does the… Continue

Year-end is fast approaching and the door will soon close on budget approvals for your 2010 fiscal year. How do you “sell” your leadership on the value of an Applicant Tracking System
? When the bottom line is the primary focus, you need to make the case for your ROI on the investment in new software. When compliance is the major issue, you should be able to make that case with ease!
ATS Return on Investment CAN be quantified,… Continue

In keeping with the football theme from last week’s post, not only did I marry a man who loves football, my Father also has a tremendous love of the game. My Dad played for the mighty undefeated Marcellus Mustangs in a suburb of Syracuse, NY in 1963. I can’t tell you how many stories I’ve heard about that team or how certain aspects of how that high school senior year season impacts my dad’s life. Since my dad grew up in the Syracuse area and went to… Continue

Yeah there’s a recession, yeah there’s bags of people on the market but I think creative agencies still need to be working harder to attract top talent.
It’s not enough just to exist and expect the best candidates to come to you - and be grateful for a job - they’re still in high demand so you need to do more.
Here are a few ideas:
In my experience, prospects (or lack of) have got to be the number one motivator for a job seeker in… Continue

I run a mid-sized London based recruitment firm and we are seeing massively increased requirements of hiring from our clients. Now obviously we shoud have hired more in the downturn - but that's not always possible when you work with a PLC dictating hiring rules via yield (and rightly so). How do people hire quickly and effectively without compromising on quality or without throwing too much money at the situation?

A few days back, we ran a discussion on several social networking platforms to reach out to the recruiting community and asked them if recruiters should develop their own assessment tools or hire the services of assessment specialists. A strong majority shared the same idea – focus on what you do best i.e. understand the client’s needs, pool in candidates, perform pre-screening to generate qualified leads etc. and allow specialists to take care… Continue

When people are out looking for work they can sometimes get down on themselves and recruiters can forget about the impact they can have on the people they come into contact with. Being a positive influence on others can help you to be the kind of person that others want to be around. Give yourself every opportunity to turn the relationships you have and your network into your next testimonial, client, candidate, or career move. An enthusiastic person typically has some good news, a warm… Continue

This is a bad time if you are someone who’s Monday’s are without question the worst day of the week, and every Sunday night you feel sick. If you are someone who hates their current job or perhaps the company you work for, then this economy only makes it worse. What do you do when the job market is slow and leaving is not an option? Let’s face it, just a few years ago, if you weren’t excited about your job, you went out and got a new one. For some it was as often as changing their underwear.… Continue

With cutbacks from the economy, more recruiters than ever are running a full desk. You may have been thrust suddenly into the role of Account Manager or Business Development in addition to your normal recruiting duties. If you're new to the world of staffing sales, then you may not know that not all job orders are created equal. In fact, you might be so anxious to get a "yes" out of a client that you forget all about some important factors that will predict the outcome of any job… Continue
