Is it Really About to Get Better?

I read several blog entries here that suggest that the worst is over, and perhaps it is, but the business has gone through some perhaps fundamental changes and it may be a long time until we discover "business as usual," if ever.

Yes, large numbers of recruiters have disappeared - the inevitable consequence that is Darwinian and healthy when the strong survive and the weak disappear there is more food left for the strong - but there is also less job creation, less growth, less… Continue

Social Networking - My Two Cents

Everywhere I turn nowadays there are articles about social networking: passing fad or here to stay? In my humble opinion it is definitely here to stay. So much so, in fact, that I cannot picture my work environment without it. I am aware that its impact on the recruiting industry is much deeper than others. For example, a friend of mine works for an information services firm that was ready to fire one of their associates for blogging about their products and services without getting legal’s… Continue

The Wolf

Barefoot and empty handed, in the frosty pre-dawn hours of late March, separated only by tangled wisps of breath and steam from a nearby pond, I stared down a wolf. Eye to steely eye. Neither of us advancing nor retreating. Neither of us moving, except inwardly in resolve. He, ash grey, thin and fractured from winter’s threshing, far past hunger, eternally empty, steadfast. Me, a solitary barrier to his single, strongest earthly longing; the mother to his first - in all memory -…

Does our industry REALLY care about Candidate Experience?

I had an interesting conversation with someone following ERE about the lack of innovation in our industry in terms of Candidate Experience. He suggested that if a vendor really cared - they would have someone on staff solely focused on making the technology easier for candidates. After just 1 solid rebuttel's, he stopped the conversation. Cold. Seriously people - you should know by know that I enjoy a good Debate - I learn, you learn, we all win. Anyway...It got me thinking about the conference… Continue

Depend on the Recruiter for Recruiting

As I waited at the traffic light on my way to the ERE recruitment conference in South Florida, I watched in amazement as a teenager rode a bicycle while texting on his cell phone. I immediately thought about the new multi-tasking skills that are being developed by the next generation of talent. It also made me wonder what I would learn from this ERE meet-up session; the last time I attended a recruiting conference was in 2000. As I recalled, Job boards and ATS were the talk of the town and… Continue

Interviews Slow as Molasses

I have noticed that it is taking forever for clients to make a decision on a candidate. The candidate might be the right fit, but they have to think about it. The economy is so slow companies know they can wait, and the candidate will most likely still be out there.

I was speaking with one of those candidates, and he forwarded me a clip from a letter he rec’d from a company after his interview. You won’t believe it!

"Dear Mr. Engineer,

With some luck, the interviewing… Continue

Recruitment Strategy Development - The Dreaded Job Description

In our last blog, “Recruitment Strategy Development – The Best Qualified Candidate Rarely Gets Hired”, we discussed if a Hiring Manager has not been taught how to interview, they certainly have not been taught how to select a qualified candidate.

For the purposes of Recruitment Strategy Development, RecruiterGuy ties the job description and the interviewing process together. Why? The job description should be specific enough that the skills required to be successful are crystal clear… Continue

The Missing Piece to ATS Prescreening Questions

It’s no surprise that the number of resumes stockpiling for HR and hiring managers has increased in the past year. Thus, it’s important now more than ever to have an applicant tracking system (ATS) that’s well optimized to organize candidates. Sure, there are basic search and filter components available; however, there’s one more key component that can really help you find the “shining star” in today’s more than likely flooded candidate pool. This is prescreening or custom… Continue
