Meet my friend, Ryan Leary - a firm believer that by reaching out to as many people as an “Open Networker” through social networking, "we are truly opening the door for some great opportunities both professional and personal." Ryan lives and breathes networking and if evangelism for it doesn't have a familiar ambassador on its behalf in Philadelphia, let's give him his own parking space and diplomatic sash I we need to make it official.
He is a Corporate Recruiter at… Continue

Talent Acquisition (HR and/or Internal Recruitment) could probably gleam a thing or two from a new & engaging (at least to me as a marketing-head) Hertz commercial I watched this morning (see video below). I make that statement because Hertz's new commercial is indicative of a marketing strategy that is not only well thought out, but also extremely well integrated. To take a page from a Marketing Guru I learn from each day, Seth… Continue

...for the Homeowner who has everything.
Ok, I know this picture has nothing to do with Recruiting...oh well.
We've had our house on the market for a while - trying to move north of Dallas to a smaller community. Just signed a contract to sell our home (yesterday), so the pressure is on to find a new house.
Our Realtor sent us a link to a home on 4 acres that overlooks a pond - it's pretty cool. However...
We cracked up when we saw this picture of one… Continue

Article Title: Attracting and Retaining Top Talent – A View from Human Resources
Author Byline: Liz Handlin
Author Website: http://ultimate-resumes.blogspot.com/2008/03/attracting-and-retaining-top-talent.html
About a week and a half ago I had the opportunity to moderate a panel discussion at a luncheon hosted by the Austin Technology Council. The topic was “Shortage in the Emerging Workforce: Evolving to Attract and Retain Talent” and the panel was comprised of some of the… Continue

And it went a little somethin' like this . . . (this is that part of the story where you look at the attached pop-up picture . . . or go to my original blog where you can possibly make out my sanscript under each 'pictorial representation') . . .
Now, the average layman might look at the above and say, "What if, just what if, some of the better people in the talent pool didn't have names or profiles on the web? . . . or what… Continue

As I dropped my daughter off at day care this morning, the Mommy-wars reared its ugly head to me. My daughter was abundantly clear that she did not want me to leave her there this morning (despite loving her daycare). James Dobson was on the radio talking about how many children go home to an empty house after school. Should I be at home with my daughter? Would she be better served by me spending the day at home with her, rather than me working and her playing at daycare? I honestly believe the… Continue

I get asked quite often, “How many names do I need to order to make this telephone names sourcing thing work?” The answer is deceptively simple: “Usually 30-50 names will effect ONE IMMEDIATE HIRE. Usually,” I warn.
It’s a big “usually”. It depends on the veracity of the names sourced, of course; but it also depends on the skill level of the recruiter. I can only bring you the names – what you do with them is entirely up to you. In most fields, though, 30-50 names of the truly… Continue

This chapter titled The Success Delusion, or Why We Resist Change concludes Section One of this book.
One thing that really struck me from this chapter was the powerful statement the author makes about how all of us in the workplace delude ourselves about our achievements, our status, and our contributions.
* We overestimate our contribution to a project
* We take credit - - partial or complete - - for successes that truly belong to others
* We… Continue

Steven De Poortere is talking about interesting stuff
on his ERE blog today, where he explores the possibility of measuring the success of blogging. Interesting concept, as blogging (and social networking for that matter) can be really time intensive for the average recruiter. So what is the ROI for those activities? Visibility, certainly. But how do you measure the… Continue

Clarification: I'm talking cranial hair - you guys are terrible!
So do bald people make better employees?
What if you're simply on your way to being bald? (this is a gender-neutral question) :)
- What if said employee was bald by birth?
- How about if they would be bald, but choose to shave their heads? (I believe I may fall into this category!)
- What if they should shave their heads as opposed to exhibiting their current level of baldness? (Ladies,… Continue

Any advice for a third party recruiter that identifies the ideal candidate(1 phone interview, 2 face-to-face) for client on a contingent basis only to have the client administer a "personality test" that has "no wrong answers" and you guessed it, the candidate failed. The personality test is from MSI, get this, I took it and failed as well, come to find out that 8 questions out of about 90 determine the "truthfulness" of the entire test. These questions are based on absolutes, for example: Do… Continue
