Cloud Recruiting Nuts & Bolts II: Social Networking Services (SNS) and ATS - $ apropos

In the previous post I talked about a new mobile app in the pipeline from Asurion Mobile Technology: AddressBook. This app allows you to integrate social networking services with the address book on your smart phone such that one can track all of the SNS-based (social networking service) interactions with a particular individual from one place.



Of course this provides a number of benefits, including time management and better relationship management. In this post, I would like to… Continue

Unifying a Fragmented Employment Industry

Many people have fallen victim to the ever fragmenting employment industry. High job board costs force companies to explore alternative avenues for advertising available positions and the scattering of jobs force job seekers to post their resume to multiple employment sites. Millions of jobs are left unfilled, millions of job seekers are left out of work, and thousands of job boards are cashing-in on the failures of both.



Overhead and value perception have created an unbalanced range… Continue

Can the staffing industry really learn a lesson on customer service from Qantas, of all companies?

I see a lot of the inside of planes. Being responsible for a recruitment business in upwards of 25 cities, in 15 countries, takes care of that. And I have been a Qantas “Platinum Frequent Flyer” for 8 years straight as a result.



Lately I have been assessing why I usually fly Qantas, as I have been getting more and more aggrieved at the airlines pricing policy. Seriously, Qantas regularly have Business Class seats at TWICE the price of comparable airlines to places like Shanghai,… Continue

How to manage life as a consultant – stress

www.consultgenie.com



Let’s admit it, a consultant’s life is not exactly stress-free. Yes, there are no routine office pressures, no back biting to manage, no office politics to deal with and no boss to breath down your neck. That makes life much better for a consultant than for regular employees. But, there is always the uncertainty of work, low work periods, delays in payments and sometimes too much work coming your way. All these can cause grief, stress and in extreme… Continue

The Client Side - The Success Model

The other night I had the pleasure of being on the HR Happy Hour show with Steve Boese. I'm a bit of a fish out of water when getting heavily into HR talk because I'm not an HR guy. I'm a recruiting business guy. However, it was fun and there were several topics that came up that I think are worth exploring in much greater detail. As an aside, one that did not come up was the story of the night Tracy Tran missed the game of the century in order to save the planet. A night I'll never forget and… Continue

Elbow Grease

I'm not a handy man. I try, but to be bluntly honest... I'm useless, light globes I can do, mow the lawn... OK, cut stuff up.. OK, but anything useful, work on the car, fixing broken things in general.. no way! Much to the distress of my wife and probably embarrassment of my Dad, who is the most MacGyver type guy I know.



However I was partaking in some blokey (for those in the US, read REAL MANLY) outdoor activity, had the women folk inside tending to the young 'uns. OK I was outside… Continue

Generic recruitment - why so many ads look the same!

Far too many position descriptions are complicating the recruitment process, rather than helping recruiters to recruit the right person. Good recruitment always starts by having a crystal clear understanding of what the role is (and not is). This is also fundamental for any advertisement, as role clarity is the key for finding the right person.



As I indicated in a previous blog, having a well-written role competency profile is critical - not a flowery or generic description of tasks… Continue

Truth In Advertising

Imagine this.



A new customer introduces you and your firm to an opportunity where, if you successfully fill their most challenging requirement, it will open up numerous doors to other opportunities within their organization. If you land the placement, you will regarded as a “Staffing Firm above all Staffing Firms” – one that not only found their hardest to find resource but also one that uniquely separated themselves from the packs of other staffing vendors that have struck out on… Continue

Searching For the New Recruiting Model

A few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night and it was obvious that something was weighing heavily on my mind. Actually, it was this free-to-fee recruiting business model that I read about on a LinkedIn group.



This new model appears very practical, it fulfilled a need, solves a career progression challenges and could possibly stimulate jobs growth and pull the economy out of this downward spiral.



But it was the perception and the lack of clarity on how to sell… Continue

Cloud Recruiting Nuts and Bolts - from $ apropos

From Chuck Hudgins' Blog: $ apropos



Over the course of the last few posts, I have fleshed out what I take to be the important aspects/core concepts of cloud recruiting. Two of the main points were:



Making use of social networking technology (using the same technology that makes up the cloud to connect others to the cloud)



Understanding that, in order to harness the power of free and apply…

Creating a New Company Culture

It is obvious that there are companies out there that adapt so well to the ever changing environments. Some companies have a culture where adapting to technology almost comes as second nature. Yet there are other companies refusing to accept what is changing around them. The big question is.... How does a company cope with changing its culture?



My company is strong in being ahead of the curve when it comes to products and services. LexisNexis was the first to create legal research… Continue

Recruitment Strategy Development – Successful Third Party Recruiting Relationships

RecruiterGuy has been on all three sides of the recruiting process. Three sides? Sure, I’ve been a third party recruiter, a corporate recruiting manager, and a candidate.



Today we are discussing the use of third party recruiters as a sourcing and recruiting partner. Wait! Stop rolling your eyes! Remember I’ve been on both sides of the desk. Currently as a contract recruitment consultant often I am on both sides in the same company.



Why would you want to include contingent,… Continue

Need to Skip Work? Then You Need to get Some Kids!

I used to work with this guy that would leave early on Fridays. He was a complete slacker. While the rest of us busted our humps to get resumes to clients, he’d belly up to the bar across the street. His excuse? Kids! And, he had a gaggle of them too.



Businesses lose $1.4 Billion Dollars annually to employee absenteeism due to childcare problems.



Now that I have a kid and one on the way, I get a free hall pass. Woohoo!



But, what about you buddy? You… Continue

Want to Spice Up that HR Metric? Try this Google Widget

A couple of weeks ago I was reminded about Hans Rosling and his bubble chart that animates itself. As charts go, it's pretty fun to watch. So I asked myself last weekend if I could try the chart out on some recruiting metrics just to see how it would look.



Much to the chagrin of my kids on a sunny summer day, I tested two different kinds of animated bubble charts. The first from a software company, and then the Google Bubble chart tool.



Turns out that creating an animated… Continue
