September 29, 2008

In a space that has its fair share of Mickey Mouse know-it-all's sometimes there is more to be learned from the apprentice than the sourcerer. This week Dave introduces us to one such learner in Meet Susan (Kang) Nam, As Rare as a Pink Olive.

Multibillion dollar bail out of U.S. robber barons or round-up of the week's… Continue

Recruiting in the Great Depression of 2009-20??

It has been several years since the more astute professional has seen gathering storm clouds across the horizon.

And, there are a multitude of reasons why not just the U.S., but the entire world, is facing extremely troubling times ahead. There's even talk that what lies ahead will be even more challenging than what our grandparents (and great-grandparents) faced during the 1920s.

Now is not the time for a weak heart or complacency. The mother of trouble is bred… Continue

Digging Into v1.20

Recruitfest: Track Leader Report

(Sep 26, 2008) I had a really good time at Recruitfest. The idea that a professional conference can be fun was a real eye opener. Maybe we should start to expect that networking is a success when it produces really big smiles.

The design of Recruitfest was pretty interesting. Each of four track leaders held court in a breakout room for much of the day. Same general topic, three different sessions. That way, participants had the chance to…

Spit the Dummy (Pacifier)!

Upset boy

So my son and I were playing golf last weekend with a couple of friends and one noticed some commotion on a nearby hole. We turned and watched as a player stormed off the tee box, threw his club high up into a nearby tree, and stomped on down the fairway. He then yanked off his glove, tore it into pieces, threw it on the ground and kept going. Now that's something you don't see every day!

Now this player was playing a game that obviously got the better of him. Of…

Why Mentoring should be higher on your Agenda

Every successful professional can recall the exact moment when the "seed" to succeed was planted by their mentor.

In most cases it was that moment you and someone kind enough to help your career forged a bond in mentorship. That one person you fondly remember as your first (and maybe only) mentor was the catalyst that woke you up to the potential that lay within your mind and soul. Your mentor was the person who showed you what you could become with effort and attentive skills to… Continue

One week ago today, I was at the Grand Festival of Recruiting! I will never forget it, and want to share a few of my experiences from that day...

So Thursday night I was up late packing my things for a weekend away from home... I had planned to drive my car half way to Toronto and park it at a friends house, but I was running late that morning, and literally RAN to catch my train out of Burlington. I arrived at the InterContinental, still in my flip flops, with minutes to spare. I… Continue

Way off topic but hey, it's Friday

As a UVM grad and an attendee when Ben and Jerry's started up their enterprise in an old gas station bordering the square in downtown Burlington, VT, when I read this today, many words passed my lips...

In response to our letter, Ben and Jerry's issued the following statement: "We applaud PETA's novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother's milk is best used for her child."

PETA,… Continue

Selecting Difference Makers - A How To Guide

It’s no secret that a major driver of corporate success is putting the right person in the right role the first time. In fact, statistics from the Harvard Business Review and other leading human resources thought leaders indicate that as much as 60%-85% of the retention problems many companies face are directly related to defects in the hiring process. Serving as recruiters and search firms for our clients, it’s our job to help them reverse… Continue

My top 50 groups on Linkedin. And my criteria for keeping them.

My Linkedin groups

A few weeks ago Linkedin implemented a change in the number of group an individual could join on the network. I was a huge proponent of joining groups as a way of attracting new invitations. But with the policy change I've had to make some decisions on which groups to remain a member of. So I culled my original member list of 480 groups down to the 49 you see below. The criteria was simple; a) group had to relevant to my interests and or needs as an owner of HTC Research… Continue

Sumser's Dallas Recruiting Roadshow...

I finally managed to attend one of Sumser's Recruiting Roadshow - and I'm glad I went. With great speakers presenting there was no shortage on good information to review - although this, in my opinion, wasn't the real win of the event.

The feel of the event was very much UNlike your typical conference. The focus was truly local and had more of a 'town hall' vibe. It would seem that… Continue

Staffing tricks of the trade

I have been involved in recruitment since the fall of 2000 having enjoyed recruiting for multiple disciplines. I have supported both corporate and third party; first attracting the best and most qualified Architect, Engineers, Interior Designers, Bankers and now IT folks. I have spent four years recruiting in corporate for one of the top ten banks nationally and four years on the agency side; one of those was supporting the second largest parent agency in the world. I cannot guarantee you an… Continue

The letter you will get from "W" next week.

September 29, 2008

Dear Taxpayer and Concerned Citizen,

You are receiving this letter as you are the account holder of funds within an F.D.I.C. backed financial institution.

Over the weekend Congress and I worked together to solve what appeared to be the greatest threat to our economy in decades. This crisis would most assuredly have brought our nation to its knees in a matter of days – if not hours. We had to act quickly in order to insure our own freedoms and… Continue

Is your Email getting through?

Email is the current primary means of communication. It’s important to make sure the emails we send to our candidates reach their target – The In-Box. So I decided to do a little more research...

Every day, scores of legitimate emails get blocked by email filters and corporate firewalls. In fact, market intelligence companies estimate up to 38% of permission-based emails are wrongly blocked by filters and firewalls. Your all-important emails to candidates, recruitment campaigns, and… Continue
