Social Media - Friend or Foe of the Job Seeker?

The buzz around using social media to find a job or find a candidate is starting to become very loud. Frankly, if you are a recruiter and you haven’t started using social media sites like LinkedIn, FaceBook and Twitter to find and stay in touch with prospective candidates, you are already behind. Remember the Internet moves at the speed of the Internet and that’s pretty fast. Things that seem important and relevant one day can be passe’ the next. Take blogging for instance, at one point there… Continue

Performance reviews; Do they perform?

Performance review time in any company is detested by most managers and employees. Most companies continue to follow the same old process of reviewing every candidate just once a year and make changes to compensation based on the outcome of the review. How can a manager expected to remember all the events from the first day of the year to the last? Is it right to expect a manager to record every significant event with the employee during the year? Should we expect the employee to accept… Continue

All these resumes and Where do They Go?

I noticed a very interesting blog yesterday about a new recruiter inquiring about choosing and the validity of:

ATS. A woman responded that they, ATS"s, were a waste of time unless you have a data entry person, and even then there value were was questionable.

My situation is different, but has similarities. I do have an ATS system that I have never really developed or used fully. It also only cost 200 dollars. It will do some automatic data entry, particularly if you set up a… Continue

Lasse Sorensen is my chef of choice. We discovered the Master Chef from Denmark in a tiny town in Southern Illinois, while on one of our annual morel-hunting weekends. We lived in Chicago at the time and would cheat spring by three weeks by traveling down south around Easter time to… Continue

Dignity in Downsizing

Having friends and contacts in the industry (both recruiting and automotive) I've been involved in numerous conversations about layoffs recently. One in particular stuck out to me, though. A fellow corporate recruiter at another local OEM was groaning to me about how one of their contract agencies handled a recent round of staff reductions. I'll withhold the name of both companies since I'm not looking to drag any names through the mud, but it is worth discussing what happened.

This… Continue

Why should I pay a fee with all those ad responses?

We hear a lot about the high availability of talent. Is that really true? While you probably know someone who happened to be in the wrong industry and they got caught in massive downsizing, they are the exception. The government reported that the unemployment rate among college educated workers over the age of 25 in only 4.3%, or we are practically at full employment.

Former GE CEO Jack Welch said that an organization has:

• A players – top 20% who can be 8 times more… Continue

From "Good to Great": How a roadside epiphany is transforming this Executive Recruiter

The word “should” implies responsibility. It connotes demand, and that's just not the case. Life has a rhythm, it ebbs and flows. My failures haven't been failures so to speak, I just haven't been as good as I needed to be. I may not have specific control over my situation, but I have a choice about how I view it.

If I continue to do things the way I've always done them, I am not going to generate as much revenue this year as I did in 2007… Continue

The "Counter (offer)" Punch

punch You have just dropped the bombshell news on your boss that you are leaving. After they pick themselves up off the floor, there will usually be one of three reactions:

  1. Congratulations, good for you!
  2. Traitor! Pack your stuff and get out (or work through your notice and endure my constant looks of contempt)
  3. Sorry to hear that, is there anything we can do to keep you…
