Mendoza's Monday Member Showcase
This week Dave gives us an intimate portrait of a recruiter who shares more than his eclectic tastes but also his incisive wisdom:
"I try to learn as much from everyone I work with as I can get. Your talents can only get better through knowledge and practice."

I've just joined recruitingblogs.com and am so happy that a network exists for networking with fellow recruiters. Unfortunately today was the day that the recession made a direct impact on me, I was laid off due to budgets/cutbacks, etc. I would very much like to network with fellow recruiters in my position to put our heads together and effectively survive this recession. I am a senior technical recruiter who has worked in agency settings both as a recruiter and a recruiting manager. I am… Continue

I'm so pleased to have been awarded the prize in the Smart Recruiters contest!
Jason called today to let me know the good news.
I'm honored to have been selected and look forward to a Master Chef coming to cook for 6 of us in my home.
P.S. I checked out the free ATS (applicant tracking sytem) software) over at SmartRecruiters.com and registered. It looks promising.

If I were to start my a new firm and payroll contractors, where would I turn?
Does anyone have any suggestions for people to call, and what kind of rates to expect and cash upfront I would need? Especially in this economy.

This is a super secret way to get to know nurses and potentially to know them as sources. Ready???
We'll open a RBC HotAndCoolScrubs.com online store where we'll sell scrubs and offer free monogramming. The designs for these will come from our friends and family, kids, politicians with time on their hands cause they're in jail, monkeys who paint, and most of all from members of the RBC community because for certain, the RBC Art Therapy Program will… Continue

Should you "build" or "buy" talent? It is the ultimate dilemma for entrepreneurs. Busines owners don't have time to train newbies (build), and they can't afford to hire experience (buy). So what do they often do? They hire mid-level people with average talents; obtaining average results.
The accounting and legal professions have perfected the "build" model. Every year they hire interns that turn into direct hires. They train and mentor the heck out of them; thus always having a… Continue

Barack Obama used social media to get himself into the White House and thousands of companies are using social media to create brand awareness and an online buzz. However, social media can also be used for many other purposes as well. If you work in Human Resources, you may be thinking, “I dont want to get to the White House — I just want to recruit some employees”. Social networks are an amazing channel for finding potential employees and increasingly becoming an even expected way of finding… Continue

Ms. Higgins said one reason everyone survived was that the plane carried "very senior flight attendants." All were in their 50s, according to US Airways. "This is a testament to experienced women doing their jobs, because they were, and it worked," said Ms. Higgins, who has worked for several federal agencies since 1969.
Hey Recruiters - ARE YOU LISTENING?!?!?!?

My mother's car broke down in the Brisbane CBD at 7 am on a Monday morning. Now there's a stress test you can't pay for at the Wesley Hospital! The automobile club were dutifully telephoned, and as expected there was a delay. After a short while, the roadside assist mechanic arrives, checks for the basics, only to conclude the vehicle will need towing.
After three hours of standing in the heat, pent up frustration and umpteen telephone calls to Colin on the customer service hotline;… Continue

Job hunting can be a very difficult time for candidates. Looking the the right job, dealing with recruiters, getting the interview, and finaly receiving a suitable offer.
Most jobs end up having only a few candidates make the shortlist for the interview stage. For a candidate getting to the interview stage means they are one or two steps away from a potential offer, they just need to pass the interview and not crash and burn.
The best way to get through the interview is… Continue

Am I a different person at work and at home? Should I be? Isn't being me the thing I do best?

Is your Recruiting Team ready for tomorrow?
Many Recruiters and Recruitment Managers do not see that the recruiting profession is changing. The skills that made Recruiters successful in the past will not bring organizations to the front of the war for talent in the future and the Recruiters of tomorrow will not find success using the same techniques that make them successful today. The Recruiter of tomorrow will embrace online social networking and viral marketing techniques. The… Continue
