Cost of Waiting

So often companies are slow to hire when a position is open. Many think that if a position is vacant for a period of time, the company is saving money. This could not be further from the truth! Take a look at the simplified formula* below to determine how much money your company saves by quickly filling positions.



Step 1

Annual revenue generated by company

Number of revenue generating employees = Revenue per employee per year

Should you pay to upgrade your membership?

Should you pay to upgrade your membership? There are a number of executive and professional organizations on the internet. I belong to a number of them and enjoy the benefits of membership. However, even some of the ones to which I am a member I have a problem with some aspects of their business model. I fundamentally do not want to pay for anything. At least not for some of the services offered such as “access” to job opportunities that are “hidden.” These sites “uncover” job opportunities for… Continue

I'm a Job Seeker, Hear Me Tweet

As I continue along in my job search for an IT Staffing Recruiter position, I'm becoming more and more keen on the benefits of using Twitter.



Sure, plenty of people use Twitter in less-than-optimal ways, sharing the minutia of their daily lives to anyone who will listen. But I'm not talking about that kind of tweeting. I'm talking about a genius yet easy-to-use tool that can and should enhance any job search if used correctly.



First and foremost, Twitter is about giving… Continue

“Fake” postings and your job board

It’s never a good idea to upset your customers. So why would a job board allow a so-called ‘fake’ job posting – a job listing that, in fact, does not currently exist?



1. Maybe the job board didn’t know it was fake. After all, dozens or even hundreds of jobs are posted at many sites each week – by employers, not the job board.

2. The ‘paying’ customer posted that ‘fake’ listing. Money speaks.

3. ‘Fake’ postings are almost impossible to screen.



For the sake of… Continue

Anatomy of a Great Staffing Firm Website

I just love websites that are well designed. In my earlier days I worked as an Information Architect for companies like Digitas. And I've designed all the sites that fall under my company umbrella as the CEO of AllCountyJobs.com. So I think I have a little credibility when it comes to recognizing good web design.



Recently one of my podcast service companies,… Continue

Find Your Customers on Facebook

Marketing in its purest form is very simple... get the right message in front of the target audience and a successful campaign should be in the future. But with the recent changes and upgrades in the world of technology it's becoming more difficult for advertisers to ensure that their message is being heard.

Guest Complaints - Keys to Success

Effectively dealing with a customer complaint can be the difference between return business and lost business.



My family did quite a bit of travelling this holiday and it was not seamless to say the least. Now mistakes happen and when you are dealing with multi-layered services within one company I can understand how frustrating it can be to have to fix the problems created by other people or departments. However – at the end of the day the customer should not be made to pay for… Continue

Why my resume rejected by Recruiters?

My resume has not been short listed for the job, “I am qualified for that job, and still recruiters reject my resume for interview”. This is the most common question for more than 75% job aspirants in the market. If a recruiter rejected your resume, it means he didn’t like your resume; maybe you are not qualified for the job. Recruiter wants to shortlist first resume, because it makes their work easy, they don’t want to source too many resumes for a particular position. Still they reject… Continue

The social recruiting battlegrounds in 2010

Twitter battle

The last decade has, in my opinion, seen one of the biggest seed changes the recruitment industry has seen for many years. While I am referring to social media, I also combine that with the evolution (it took it's time but now has real momentum) that has been online recruitment.



The primary change is that we're…

Running with Scissors

Door-to-door salesmen, junk mail, telemarketers, urgent recorded phone messages, and Viagra emails.



Utter just one of these words to a family member of friend and chances are they will elicit words of anger, frustration, and just flat out negativity. Automatic DM's are no different. There has been a great debate on Twitter ever since the auto-DM (automatic Direct Message) was… Continue

Show me the JobFax!

If you’ve turned on a television in the last 18 months you’ve probably seen the commercials encouraging consumers to ask car dealerships to “Show them the CarFax” before purchasing a used vehicle. A CarFax report is a certified report detailing the history of the vehicle. The report covers several important topics such as if the car has been in any accidents, service records, ownership history, and if the car has had any title issues. This product has gained quite a bit of momentum in the past… Continue

Back to work!

I’m scheduled to get back to work on Monday, January 4th. Big deal, huh? I’m returning after a month of medical leave. During this month, I’ve had to re-learn the most basic, fundamental human function: breathing. Due to an “interesting” sequence of medical events, I required extensive surgery on my right lung in early December. As a follow-on, I literally had to re-establish (re-learn) a consistent, “normal” breathing pattern. Something that most humans do 15-20 times per minute for their… Continue
