I’ve heard it said that branding is all about getting yourself noticed. I’d tend to disagree – at least I’d tend to disagree today. It’s my opinion that personal branding only begins with getting noticed. If done right, personal branding efforts (for employment) should continue down a path that leads potential employers to see you as the only viable option they have for a job they’re looking to fill (or to create!)
But first let’s have a quick chat about getting… Continue

(Audio version here
Last week, I criticized a young, corporate recruiter for slandering salesmen
on his blog. Well, he got in touch with me because he didn't like hearing me say his philosophy is well suited to cult members and cream puffs but not strong women and real men.
And you know what that means? That even after listening this little punk still didn't get it. So I'm going to have to teach him another lesson, today.… Continue

Hi I just think about online ERP here:
Nowadays, employee referral program (ERP) is proven to be the most effective and efficient way to hire new. According to “Recruitment Advertising: Moving in New Directions” by Classified Intelligence, ERP is 20% more effective than job board like Monster, CareerBuilder and Dice. Many HR sources claim that rewarding employees actually costs less than recruiting and often attracts better workers.
With so much advantage, more and more… Continue

How to Think Like Your Prospect?
As we consider the candidate mindset, we realize that they're busy achieving their success as a result a large number of candidates are just bored, tired or not interested in looking for “opportunities”. We need to recognize that candidates are chasing a career, not jobs.
When people write their profiles, bios, or resumes, they reflect their personality and skills as they represent their career goals creating an image. They are building a… Continue

A lot of people want to know what I think about CafePharma. Here goes: I think that it’s a great source of relevant headlines for those of us in medical and healthcare sales, pharmaceutical sales, laboratory sales, clinical diagnostics sales, DNA sales, medical supplies sales, medical equipment sales, imaging sales, and pathology sales. However, beware of the chat room. There can be a lot of negative information from people who have their own specific axe to grind. No company is as bad as they… Continue

I am putting together a strategy for my company to better utilize outsourcing firms for our delivery model. We are a RPO company and our solutions, tailored to individual clients, cant be one size fits all.

(The biggest firms, niche firms, geography, or something else?)
If their are outplacement… Continue

I feel the same way you do. I absolutely loved the "whole idea" of Linkedin professional networking and like you, I've accepted every invitation I've received, invited hundreds of recruiters (and others in our industry) to "please join my professional network on Linkedin." Most have accepted my invitation, some are "still pending," and no one has "declined" my invitation. I completely finished my profile at 100% two days ago, and it must have taken at least ten days… Continue
