Management vs line level professionals

I am recruiting for a Fire Safety Director for Mount Sinai. I have also been asked to find coders(the folks that figure out the insurance ) It is much easier to find senior people. The operator or area just gves out the names. To find coders (or programmers in my previous life) takes an inrodinate amout of digging. Senior people are also much more receptive and frequently give out refferals. If a line level professional is not looking many times(but not all) you get attitude.

Just my 2… Continue

8 Cool Ways to Engage Your Hiring Managers and Hire More “A-level” Talent

8 Cool Ways to Engage Your Hiring Managers and Hire More “A-level” Talent

by Lou AdlerMay 29, 2009, 6:01 am ET

Instead, we can either confront them head on, or put our heads down in despair, and find still other perfectly qualified candidates they still won’t like. Unfortunately, too many recruiters fall into this endless productivity-draining black hole, and wonder why the latest new sourcing… Continue

Job losses continued through October 2009, but at a declining rate, with job gains finally turning positive in November 2009, at around 20,000 or so.

The unemployment rate… Continue

which way is up?!?

I really love the crew at rbc.

I used to love hanging out at the site.

Then chat failed, then the format changed, then chat changed again, then the talent talks got canceled, and now I can't find my way around.

Please remember that too much change is not always a good thing. Some of us need a little stability. And I need SEARCH BOX ON THE MAIN PAGE!

There is so much good information here, but I fear that too… Continue

Negotiating The Deal

If everyone liked to negotiate. the world would be full of lawyers. However, nobody wants to feel like they are being taken advantage of. Set a reasonable goal for yourself when negotiating for a new job or even a raise or promotion at your current job. Decide what would really make you happy, and think what you could settle for and still be satisfied. Put yourself in the shoes of the company making the offer and develop a realistic worth of your… Continue

The Client Side - I need some motivation. Has anyone made a placement today?

I've been working like a dog and I was not feeling particularly motivated today so I put the question out on Twitter.....

Has anyone made a placement today?

I was promptly reminded by Jerry Albright (the Twittering Maniac) that, of course not, not this crowd. Everyone on Twitter is coaching or sharing advice, not making placements. The people making placements are busy doing the placement making work. So I thought if I wanted to find someone who made a placement today,… Continue

Some, rather most organizations reject his CV today because he has changed jobs frequently (10 in 14 years). My friend, the ‘job hopper’ (referred here as Mr. JH), does not mind it…. well he does not need to mind it at all. Having worked full-time with 10 employer companies in just 14 years gives Mr. JH the relaxing edge that most of the ‘company loyal’ employees are struggling for today. Today, Mr. JH too is laid off like some other 14-15 year experienced guys – the… Continue
