Are we on the verge of the best recruiting market any of us has seen before? Or at least a thriving environment for recruiters? Maybe. Conditions have been incredibly tough for our business, but I think it is entirely possible that we will roll into a great period for our business. Here’s why.
My hope through the last year or so has been that it won’t take much of an improvement in general business conditions for those of us left in the recruiting business to do really… Continue

That may get your attention. Generally when RecruiterGuy presents to groups on the topic of interviewing, people ask about the interviewing process.
How many times have you sat in an interview and wondered, “How will this person (the Hiring Manager) be able to determine if I am the best qualified candidate? Instead of probing my experience, capabilities, and motivations, he/she just asked me what kind of tree I would choose to be.” Obviously the person advocating that type of… Continue

It has been a pleasure to interview you this past week, and I appreciate how much time you were able to spend with me. Your answers to my probing questions, as well as your stated logic for your career moves and claims of successful track record encouraged me to share your resume with my team.
In taking an extra step of due diligence, we learned that there appears to be a well-documented contradiction of reasons for you moving from one position to the… Continue

Have you ever regretted hiring the wrong man for a job because you were in so much of a hurry to get someone hired? Most Small Businesses are run without either the support of a Human Resource department or without sufficient amount of planning in hiring the right candidate for an important job opening. Although time is a precious instrument in running a business, some of it needs to be spent planning out the employment process to get the person right for the job.
There are various ways to… Continue

Recruiting Has to Go Video, right. Video, combined with the Internet, is a game-changer for recruiting, right, as Kevin Wheeler has stated recently.
But I still hear it all the time - "How much for a video?," "It too expensive?" In ADOTAS
I came across an article that is retweeted below. This article answers the cost question very well, but the answer is it depends. Read the article to see why. When thinking strategically about your… Continue

Buzz buzz. This'll be fun. In the middle of the day from hell I had today, my mind drifted to a more secure, happier place, and began to use itself again to think. Unfortunately those thoughts are always that great. I do amuse myself though...

Do you remember learning how to ride your bide? Sure, you faltered a few times, fell off, and scraped your knees. But, it wasn’t long before you were soaring on two wheels! Riding a bike for most of us was achieving a big goal. Maybe our first taste of success. Success is as simple as riding a bike.
You Can Do It With What You Have

Everyday recruiters get up, dress, put their shoes, go to work and try to hire someone.
But it’s been a nightmare.
Hiring Managers have been overly picky. Candidates go through a multiple round of interviews, given urine, blood, and semen samples just to prove they can do the job.
Then after they get hired, it’s like Welcome to the U.S.S.R all over again. Community coffee spoon, handful of napkins, and a few abandoned coffee mugs in the… Continue

In part I of our series on how to monetize Twitter, we explore a very basic method. If you haven't yet heard, Twitter is the new "big thing" on the interwebs. Everyone and their mother is on Twitter. While we don't really care what your mother is cooking at this very moment, we do care about generating leads and promoting business via "tweets". It's a great way to reach a broad audience, and takes very little time.
If you are interested in making money using Twitter, I recommend the… Continue

Today I met with an exceptional IT professional, a candidate who has extensive experience in healthcare infrastructure (a rare skillset in Canada) who is in between contracts. It was a great conversation, and after a good 90 minutes, I came out of the meeting with my head spinning.
You see, this candidate has had a terrible experience with recruitment agencies in Canada. And for the first half of our interview he was putting me in the same cesspool as the other 'recruiters' he's… Continue

I am reaching out to you personally to share something that everyone is finding quite amazing. As an HR specialist I'm sure you can appreciate the following observation...that the staffing and HR placement process has serious flaws causing serious overhead expenses to the client. What happens all to often is that a candidate is selected for a various role and after a short period of settling in either the client or the candidate is not a good fit. This candidate churn can cost… Continue

From $ apropos
This post will be somewhat tangential in terms of the SNS line of thought, although I would like to respond/think about Ken Forrester’s blog post “Searching for the New Recruiting Model”. Ken describes a conversation with a contact about how everything is being turned upside down, and that we now have a need to reassess what constitutes a workable recruiting model.
A lot of information is… Continue
