Is job seeker registration good or bad? And if you require registration, how much is too much? And…how much value should you attach to these registered users?
Personally, I think a little friction is a good thing (as does Seth Godin, apparently). If a job seeker wants to land a job, why shouldn’t he (or she) give up something? After all, your site is delivering something of value, correct?
“But you lose job seekers every time you require registration,” I know some of you… Continue

Talent Management is changing and forward-thinking companies must begin preparing for the changing job market. Over the last several weeks, the news publications and news networks have begun reporting positive changes in the economic markets. The Globe and Mail reported last week, that as the economy improves, we will see a “W” shaped recovery. A W shaped recovery has a large dip which we have already experienced, followed by a rise, and follow by another dip before we return to a stable and… Continue

Glad to see things picking up out there...
Even though this post is not inline with Human Resources it is inline with being HUMAN.
Recently Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland regarding an extradition warrant filed by the USA approx. 30 yrs ago.
I am sure most know the story; Roman meets a 13 yr old girl promises her stardom then has a few photo-shoots, then alcohol and drugs come into the fold as does raping a minor...
Currently there are… Continue

The other day, I was thinking back to a factory job I held from 1987 until 1995..I worked the afternoon shift at an aluminum casting foundry, where we made parts for things like autos, fighter jets, and tanks..
Anyway, my job was to take the rough edges off of the castings, done by holding the casting "just right" on a rotating belt of very coarse sandpaper..the belt moved fast enough that if one was careless or in a hurry, a casting could be destroyed in seconds, or worse yet, one's… Continue

After an absolutely exhilarating day participating in the Annual Member Congress of the International Association of Employment Websites, I was prepared to sense some level of deflation as I entered day two of my trip, and day one of the ere.net expo. After all, I work for a group of employment websites , and this was a conference primarily geared toward full time corporate and 3rd party recruiters. These were the people paid to find the talent that’s theoretically not looking for work on… Continue

I was walking down the street the other day when I ran into an old colleague, an ex-employee actually, from my days as the owner of accounting and finance recruiter, Recruitment Solutions.
We talked for a while, and as we parted she said with a huge smile, “ Still following that old success formula, Greg. It has made me millions!” At first I could not for the life of me work out what she was talking about. But… Continue

I want to get my RecruitingBlog going. I realize that it will take some time to develop proper social media habbits, and actually set up all my RSS feeds and stuff. I tend to have a lot of things going on in my life both inside and outside of work, but I gotta make time for what is important to me, and I am super passionate about web 2.0. I dont think I can do a post every day, but am very inspired by the dilligence of some people like Rayanne Thorn, who do, so I am going to write a post once a… Continue

On the weekend I watched the AFL Grand Final and witnessed probably two of the greatest AFL teams in history battle out an exciting tight contested game. Neither team deserved to lose, Geelong prevailed in the end. St Kilda’s leaders will use the loss as a motivator for next and subsequent years.
Many parallels can be drawn between successful sports teams and businesses (teams of people as well). A quick review of the two teams leads to some interesting (though not unexpected)… Continue

I often hear from business owners that they don’t have “time” to get a new employee up to speed. Excuse? Not at all. The reality is that business owners are extremely busy.
Based on staggering statistics that 22% of staff turnover occurs in the first forty-five days of employment, it makes perfect sense to delay a hire if you don’t have the time to onboard an employee properly.
Yet, most companies continue to hire new employees without providing effective training or… Continue

As a relative outsider to recruitment, I was wondering if anything has changed in recruitment?
I know things are tough but is everyone just waiting for the good times to return, for things to return to normal or has anything significant happened to change how the industry works?
I never fully understood the business model. It appears to reward poor performance. The higher an employers staff turnover, the more business a recruiter gets. It seems a bit strange and I… Continue

This week I traveled to Toronto for the second time within a week. First was to see U2 – totally awesome concert! It is a beautiful City fairly close to Upstate NY. I normally do not attend conferences, but learned of Recruitfest from Twitter. Then in having conversations with @jennydevaughn – she encouraged me to go, so I thought I would give it a try!
This was an “unconference,” described as an open forum to exchange thoughts and ideas with fellow peers and thought leaders within the… Continue

Let's suppose that all the planets align correctly and you wake up on the correct side of the bed (most days) and you are becoming an Actual Leader. This is confirmed for you on a regular basis by people who genuinely smile when they see you coming and also smile and thank you when they depart your presence. Some of these people come to you out of the blue to bounce ideas off of you or report progress because they know that you appreciate it and that they are appreciated. You are even taking… Continue

Hiring and keeping good workers begins with the job interview. A successful interview does not just happen, it needs to be planned, guided and prepared for. If your interview skills are a bit rusty here are a few pointers to get you back in the game.
1) Review the resume before meeting face to face with a candidate. Take time to know something about the person before you meet them. Otherwise you may come across unprepared or disorganized.

Life is just not fair. There are some roles that get the best out of a person, and then there are roles that were designed to make your life feel at times like hell on earth. It was only recently that I discovered that there is a life cycle for roles, similar as for a company.
The best roles are those with a great company and with a great boss. However, not all roles are created equal. In two of my roles I only stayed for one year, but started looking around after one month, as I… Continue
