"If you argue for your limitations..... you get to keep them!"
- (From Jonathan Livingston Seagull
A few years ago a short book came out that swept the corporate world as a whole. In fact, my corporate office sent me a box of them for my staff and even some to distribute to my clients (which was a nice thought, but ultimately most of them already had it from THEIR corporate office). The book was called “Who Moved My Cheese?”

"The 12 Rules of ART" are a series of action guidelines I have adopted over the last 15 years in this business, which together form a functional roadmap of my core business philosophies, strategies and practices. Some of them I coined and some of them I stole, but all of them are good.
I have decided to share them with all of you here at recruitingblogs as a way to thank and repay you for all the great motivation and techniques I find here every day. I hope you find some value in… Continue

My scheduled guest cancelled on me again -- this is getting sickening -- so I corralled a real scientist, Cliffy Mintz
, to be the guest. He was a recruiter for five years and now he advises scientists (who appear to be total losers) in their careers. If you want to call in or simply listen you will find the info at.recruitingshow.com

Looking through Glassdoor Darkly
Businessweek looks at a new startup, Glassdoor.com, here. The company has an impressive pedigree and a nice looking site, but we think these types of “review your teacher/company/cafe” products provide anecdotal but not really actionable data. Fine for selecting a muffin but less useful for negotiating a salary.
The use of self-reported survey data is an established protocol for putting together… Continue

I have been told by several candidates recently that hell will freeze over before they'll consider working for one of my clients. Since this seems to be a growing trend of feedback, what is my responsibility as a recruiter? Should I just sell the company to candidates in spite of its reputation? Or do I tell the company what I’m hearing on the street? I’d like to keep them as a client if possible.

Each moment brings an opportunity to be a part of a "community," be that in line at Best Buy or in the waiting room of a doctor's office. Susan Burns led an insightful conversation/chat with many opinions and free-flowing ideas this Tuesday... I feel lucky enough to have been a part of that exchange.
There are many communities that each of us belongs to...
Some of mine include: family, school, work, friends, PTA, theater, neighborhood, co-ops and a few online communities... It… Continue

Let’s face it, Web 2.0 is quickly becoming the hottest way to market and evangelize your business. No only is it the most effective way to build a professional network, it’s the fastest. Social networking tools can help build strong relationships, but it’s still an artistry that takes effort to make them effective and fruitful.

I am a corporate recruiter for Microsoft Canada. Recently, I have decided to work on my sales skills, since I dont get toooo much practice on the job. You can imagine how the Microsoft Brand itself goes a long way towards attracting candidates to my opportunities.

Six months ago most Information Technology recruiters were still telling their client companies how it was a candidate driven market and that yes they had to pay more, be less picky and if need be pay to relocate candidate. While that may still be the case in some corners of the world we are seeing the market evolve, and in turn our message to our clients & candidates must change as well.
So as the economy slows, companies, in turn, slow their hiring process, and it’s causing a… Continue
