I was very reluctant to write this post initially. There has been so much noise about social media, and how it’s going to impact our industry, do we really need another blog on the topic?
Probably not. But the rhetoric and hyperbole about social media has been bugging me lately, and it will make me feel better if I offer some thoughts about how all this may play out.
Lets start ‘big picture’ and then focus in on social media itself. It seems to me that the big issue facing… Continue

The money question
The money question always comes up in job interviews. If you are a candidate looking at a new position, you can safely assume the person on the other side of the desk will ask some form of the money question. Your answer is difference between moving forward and being eliminated.

This is my first post so....be nice. :-)
Like many companies right now, due to the economic climate, we're not hiring as much as we have been. As a result, my team has went from recruiting on numerous complex positions to recruiting on less than half of what they were used to in a very short amount of time. We are still on target to meet our annual goals and I have been able to keep the team engaged by working on special "extra" recruiting-related group projects… Continue

Come gather 'round recruiters
Wherever you roam
And admit that the technologies
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be tweeting, and not so much working the phone
If your billable return to you
Is worth savin'.
Then you better start social networkn'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come sourcers and researchers
Who connect on LinkedIn
And cast your referrals… Continue

Everyone has an opinion on Recruiting, all levels of a company, and pretty much anyone you meet just on the street. It's always puzzled me yet somehow made sense. Something occurred to me. Recruiters are mostly trespassers.
We are interlopers, we hang out in communities we don't really belong in don't we? We exude expert knowledge in industries we haven't actually worked in. We advise people on career choices in industries we watch yet in the majority of cases haven't participated… Continue

Everybody works hard but only a select few are known as great closers. Over the past 10 years my teams have placed 15,000 candidates into new jobs/positions with clients for fees over $500M.
Here are some of the the things that I teach and have witnessed as helping to make a great closer:
- Closers close all the time, every chance they get
- Closers are not cocky, they are good
- Closers are great at listening to their clients and candidates and understand the… Continue
