I can think of only few who has shown…Continue

You just got an offer for the services of your consultant from two clients - now what? Well first off this is a good problem to have - it shows that you're doing a good job assessing talent. But this situation does need to be handled delicately from many aspects, especially when there are multiple salespeople & clients involved.
From the client perspective we've got a "first right of refusal policy" that basically says first company to interview gets 24 hours to offer before… Continue
Some of us had the pleasure of John's company in Ft. Lauderdale yesterday. We spent time together at the BROWN BAG RECRUITER training in the morning and then had lunch together. We rounded out the day networking with 12 disciples breaking bread at the South Florida Metro Recruiters inaugural shindig which was hosted in absentia by Jason Davis [aka Slouch] and… Continue

I've never been a big fan of social media measures, but other people like them. "That's the best we have," people tell me.

So we all have used Google, Yahoo!, and some of us have even used Microsoft Live and Lycos. Well one search engine in particular has become a favorite of mine and that is Exalead (www.exalead.com).

Communication: \kə-myü-nə-kā-shən\ - a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system
I think that we’ve all heard how email communications are a poor substitute for speaking on the phone, and that most of us believe that since the aspect of understanding someone’s emotions or sense of humor is just so tough.
However, I’m not here to complain about misunderstandings that email creates (deal with people). I’m here to talk about how the… Continue
Everyone depends on you. Your sales efforts impact everyone. Without them, everything stops.
That’s how important you are to your company and the people in it.
Each sales week and month, you and your team will almost certainly be presented with sales challenges and periods of time that test your resolve to make the next call and, in some extreme cases, even question your career choice.
Perhaps this happens more for those of us in Recruiting and Sales because our… Continue
