Every day I peruse ERE.net, Cheezhead, Workforce, and a bunch of other sites. Why? Well, of course I’m avoiding my ‘real’ work…but I’m also trying to keep up with the ever-shifting winds of change in the HR, recruiting, and job board worlds. This task can take as little as 5 minutes – but it often sucks up much more time.
So I asked myself: does it matter? Is there really any reason to spend time that I could otherwise be devoting to my business and clients? For example, if Monster… Continue

Last time I wrote for Recruitingblogs.com, I suggested you pull your sourcing skeleton out of the closet. This month I have rehab on my mine. And that Amy Winehouse song is echoing...
Rehab occurs to me because I run. Or lately, I hobble. Had a series of minor injuries this year with the last being a pulled hip muscle. Every time I get an injury, there's a rest period, rehab and rebuilding my running program, from square one. I hate it. I like to run, it helps me focus and is a huge… Continue

Last time we spoke about identifying the true hiring decision maker (HDM). We will go on the assumption that has happened.
We will also assume that you have been in front of the interview panel and your keen intuition says you did well in the your interviews and made a connection with at least the vast majority of the folks you met with, including the HDM. If you feel your intuition is not working,… Continue

Many businesses are still practicing talent mismanagement through "fire, ready, aim" rather than "ready, fire, aim!" Although you might get lucky and this approach may work, implementing a more logical and effective talent management
process for selecting top talent is the key to your company's future success.
The approach starts with a clear definition of the key jobs your company has to fill. You will have a much better chance… Continue

“You better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone. For the times they are a-changin’”
A couple of weeks ago I learned that my co-workers call the office that I share with our CEO, “The Fishbowl”. The Fishbowl is the nerve center of Newton Software. Given our small footprint, the Fishbowl acts as the design studio, front office, communications center and test lab. Sometimes our co-workers might say it more resembles an… Continue

It’s no secret: The recession has hit the recruiting industry especially hard. With fewer job listings and far more competition, recruiting firms need to employ better marketing strategies. How will your firm rise above the noise? How can you promote your brand and value proposition with little or no marketing budget? The answer could be a growing new media tool: podcasts.

A little more than a year ago I was asked to participate in something I personally had never done before. Help create a sourcing team from scratch. After taking a rather large gulp of my soda I began to think about all of the various things that needed to be done. Can it be done? How long is it going to take? I quickly knew my biggest challenge was gaining credibility as a sourcing team and instilling confidence within the team as well as our peers.
In a market where many sourcing… Continue

After a recent placement I sat at my desk and thought, I really love this business. Client's Happy, Candidate's Happy, Recruiter's Happy, Me........we all win. That's the great thing about this business. When we win, we all win. And at a time like that, even a little dry period looks like a good thing in hindsight. It's over, but sobering and helps keep you grounded and focused. The problem is, right now I don't think this downturn we are in is anywhere near over. I talk to a lot of clients and… Continue

I’ve been playing Golf for seven years and I am bad. I’ve dropped cash on Ping Irons, Big Bertha Drivers, Dry-fit golf shirts, and even a Mack Daddy golf bag that I take family canoe trips in. No matter how good the equipment, I just suck palsy bad.
Most of the clubhouses around Atlanta have my picture posted on their bulletin boards. They warn their members via loudspeaker whenever I tee it up. My friends even started to wear a cup. “Dude, just throw the golf ball,” a friend once… Continue

Here is a prediction. As the market recovers the first impact on our industry will be a revival of the temp and contract market.
Employers will see increased work volumes as the economy recovers, but will “dip their toes” into the labour market at first, hiring flexible solutions initially. But then, as momentum is gained and confidence returns, they will start to hire permanently. But the first place they will go for their permanent hires will be to transition tried and tested… Continue
