So you say you've got a strong network, huh? You say that you've 900 friends on MySpace and that your Facebook cup runneth over? You're boasting that your LinkedIn profile now carries that fancy little +500 icon and that you're networker to be reckoned with? Gosh, that's great for you.
I suppose my next question is... Why?
I'm of the opinion that there are "n

Job interviews are starting to look a lot alike. The same questions are being asked over and over again and they are getting the same responses.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
There is nothing wrong with these questions, as long as candidates are willing to give honest answers and recruiters are willing to listen. Otherwise, it can become pretty hard to distinguish the right candidate from the… Continue

A growing number of jobseekers find themselves in the midst of a long-term job search. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. jobless rate soared to a four-year high of 5.7% in July 2008 and the average job search took more than four months to net results. However, some critics would put this number and the number of the unemployed much higher.
Helen Kooiman, author of Suddenly Unemployed asserts, "Such statistics are inaccurate indicators. They do not include those whose… Continue

Being a manager is not easy. As the economy loses steam and companies tighten their budgets, management skill is even more essential. In good times, when organizations are growing and money flows more freely, mistakes can be and often are overlooked. The pressures of that next project and the opportunities for that next sale often preclude a clear and unbiased look at the effectiveness of the team.
Conversely, recriminations can grow when budgets tighten, projects are cancelled and… Continue

According to Richard Sloane, management attorney with Littler Mendelson in DC,
"Meacham forces employers to more carefully evaluate involuntary RIFs. But there are several steps that prudent employers can take to minimize, and effectively manage, their potential exposure to litigation resulting from layoff decisions."
These steps include but are not limited to:
- Consult legal counsel (in-house and/or outside) to identify and analyze all of the issues to…

Finding and training new sales recruiters is a difficult but vital part of any business. As I’ve said before, these new recruits are often the best hire you can make. They have a passion and drive that cannot be taught, and that is more valuable than any acquired skill. Given a few guidelines and training, your existing core of professional sales recruiters can help bring these new recruiters up to speed.
A recent article by Dave Kahle,of The Growth Coach, outlines the beliefs that… Continue

I’ve talked about using Facebook as a screening tool for interviews, but what about as a marketing tool? And why stop at Facebook? There is a wealth of new media available online, social media sites and communities designed specifically to bring people together. If you can master just a few of these you’ll have a significant advantage over your competition.
Whether you’re a big name recruiting firm, a small start-up or a single sales recruiter, you can always benefit from being more… Continue

Sales recruiting is a unique profession because of the wide array of innate traits and learned skills required to be successful. It can be a difficult field to get into, and even more difficult to excel and last at, because of certain requirements that simply cannot be taught. This also makes it a very competitive field, which means you have a lot of options when choosing a sales management recruiter.
However, if you’re not used to working directly in the recruitment field in can be… Continue

One of the most important skills for a sales recruitment consultant, and one of the very first things every recruitment consultant learns, is good time management. Time is money in every business, but none exemplifies it quite as well as sales recruitment.
Think about it: every second spent on a potential hire that’s not a good fit, or lost to any of the day’s many distractions, is time that could have been better allocated to a more promising candidate. And time a recruitment… Continue

My question for you isn't specifically about recruiting, but about time management. My problem is that I am almost always late for things -- appointments, interviews, meetings, birthdays, anniversaries. Don't get me wrong; I get a lot done and have been recruiting successfully for years. And yes, I know it's a bad habit, that it's unprofessional, but I don't mean it that way. I just honestly believe that I can fit everything in. Any ideas to help me improve this area… Continue

I have one week in between my last position and my new one. One week to get my life in order - and everything neatly and nicely organized so that when I spring into action in my new role I'm stress and worry free. Yeah, right. I didn't think changing jobs would be stressful enough so we decided to sell our house at the same time... and of course, it sold right away. New employer, meet your new homeless executive.
Every few years I make a change like this, and every single time it is… Continue
