Due to the current state of affairs in the U.S. and world, I have been thinking quite a bit about the economy and what, if anything, will ease my own personal financial strains, as well as the burdens of my family and friends. When questioning economies of different countries, it is important to keep in mind the types of leadership and government, as well as the histories of these countries. I am lucky enough to have a friend who lives in Ontario, Canada. One evening, we briefly discussed the… Continue

Well the 4th of July is upon us. It's this time of year that I'm always catapulted into taking a hard look at my current fitness program, recruiting practices, personal relationships, or work related self-development. Strange, I know - considering most people do this around January when resolutions run rampant or in the Spring when love is in the air (or is it because of that spring cleaning thing? either way...)
Every year at this time I spend some time on each of the above… Continue

Claudia’s Wednesday Wisdom
Claudia Faust advises on tricky situations, answers members' questions...
This week Claudia advises "Steaming Mad" how to deal with a potentially toxic relationship with a co-worker who may have issues:
...The Generalist has been telling our business customers that I’m struggling in my job (of course, she denies that she said this). To make matters worse, she “forgot” to invite me to a meeting last week with an SVP to intake a new… Continue

I’m a corporate recruiter at my company, and I work closely with an HR Generalist for business hiring. I thought we had a great working relationship until a few weeks ago when another recruiter took me aside and said that the Generalist has been telling our business customers that I’m struggling in my job (of course, she denies that she said this). To make matters worse, she “forgot” to invite me to a meeting last week with an SVP to intake a new requisition, and now I’m… Continue

I'm reading a book called Starbucked right now - it's the story of the little coffeshop in Seattle. There's a some things that we recruiters can learn from how Howard Schultz ran his company and grew it from a small niche coffeeshop to the corporate juggernaut that it is today.
Starbucks delivered quality coffee in an era when the coffee in the US was terrible and had been for decades. The majors used lots of low quality "robusta" beans to supplement the "arcadia" beans that make up… Continue

This is a blatant product pitch. It's okay to do this occasionally, says Jim Durbin, so I thought I'd showcase how the TalentFilter software works. Recruiters currently spend up to 65% of their day searching for resumes on job boards. Although fancy Web 2.0 services promise passive candidate results, the truth is most of us use job boards… Continue

Ahhhhh, RecruiterGuy here and it's good to be back - sort of.
After a terrific week in Southern California I'm headed back to the office today. With batteries completely recharged I'm reminded why vacation time is so important. As addicted to online communities, email, my blackberry, etc. as I am I'm still a hard-core believer that you must completely unplug while on vacation in order to truly recharge.
Having not read a single email or dialed in even once to check voicemail I… Continue

When Susie Q comes in and sits down in the conference room to interview for that Account Supervisor role, she is very nervous. She spent yesterday going through her closet to find the right outfit for this little chat. She wanted to project that she’s confident and capable, but not too stuffy. At the last minute, she might have found herself in the dressing room at the Limited trying on silky blouses to go under her black jacket because the plain white button down one was too… Continue

Good Morning Maureen,
I know that you are in many places at once on the web and it is hard to keep track of you LOL.
I am in need of your help once again.
Why all the debates on which is better direct phone sourcing or online sourcing?? Why all the panic and fear? I don't get this. I started your course on May 15, 2008 and I am still having a bender every… Continue

Taking advantage of our recently gorgeous Northwest sunshine the other day, I decided to take a walk. As I started out on my three mile trek, I noticed a home that had a beautifully landscaped yard. The grass was green and weed-free, the flowers thrived in rich brown soil with plenty of sunshine, and there were decorative pots on the porch containing healthy looking plants. This was the kind of yard that made you want to go home and set your yard on fire, you know?
Except for this… Continue
