Ten Things Every Recruiting Professional Should Know About Millennials

We see a lot of information on both sides of the employment aisle and thought it might be fun to compile some of it on various market and employee segments into top ten lists. The newest employee group, the "Millennials", just entering the job market seemed like a great place to start since their interests and work style are still becoming known.

This first list targets key job, career and personal issues relating to finding, hiring and retaining this new talent group as they enter… Continue

I Know Something You Don't Know

Dear Claudia,

I’m a sales recruiter who takes on splits to supplement my work load. Recently I started working on a project to build out a full team of account executives for another recruiter’s client; we’re making good headway and two of my candidates are interviewing this week. So what’s the problem? Last week I get this introduction to a senior sales manager in a “quiet search mode.” You guessed it – it’s the hiring manager for the account manager search. The manager doesn’t…

"The next hire has to be a statement; it can't be from inside the company," said Rick Munarriz, an analyst with the Motley Fool.

What exactly is an Applicant Tracking System?

An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is computer software which facilitates an organization’s administration in their staffing requirements. It is also referred to as a talent management platform or more simply, a resume database.

The basic purpose of an applicant tracking system is to aid an organization’s… Continue

The Art of the Elevator Pitch; "So... what do you do?"

Companies and the minds within them evolve over time. I have experienced it firsthand in founding Broadlook Technologies and steering its growth over the last 6 years. Core competencies change, competitive landscapes change, opportunities come and go and through all this there is your corporate identity and messaging. There is internal messaging, external messaging and...

Surviving the Resume Flood

The landscape for employment opportunities took a huge turn this year. Our office, like so many other executive recruiting firms, is being flooded with emails, resumes, and recurrent phone calls on a daily basis. You can imagine the deluge that is happening in the Human Resources offices of the attractive (and let’s be honest, even the not-so-attractive) corporations.

For some this is undoubtedly a painful time of transition. Sadly, many will need to revisit their expectations,… Continue

Center City, Philadelphia - Recruiting A Recruiter

I'd like to hear from experienced recruiters who live (or wish to) live in the Philadelphia area. Mid to senior level management recruiting is required. We're a young, hip, boutique firm with very strong client relationships. Let me know if your "work personality" is more entrepreneurial or corporate; and let me know what you want your career to look like - no BS, just your vision for an environment that would bring out your best and allow you to shine.

Paying It Forward As a Recruiter In a Down Economy...

This mentions The Ruthie List and RBC as a place to find recruiters, cool. I joke about how many interviews I have been on and not yet landing that perfect gig, but it's HUGE that I am getting so much help and virtual friends are opening so many doors. I am doing my part as well, helping others with resumes and making referrals for all the jobs I wasn't a fit for. These are indeed scary times that we are witnessing, thankfully there are people stepping up and being people, being human beings… Continue

Your CEO's screen name

A few weeks back, I sat in the last row at the haughty Princeton Club in NYC with Dennis Smith taking in Kennedy's 2008 Executive Search Summit where he was a speaker. The ESS is very much traditional blue blood retained search so talking about the ubiquitous Web 2.0 tools - as Dennis did...twice - were met with a little consternation,… Continue

No Free Lunch in China...

I tend to receive a recurring misconception about the Chinese labor market from overseas-based clients. This misunderstanding primarily affects overseas-designed provisional staffing budgets as well as the

perceived value of quality of China-based recruitment agencies. In short, agencies are perceived to attempt inflating candidate packages for higher fees. While some rogue agencies do, there is a distinctive trend that the cost of Chinese talent is catching up with international… Continue

The first Broadlook Certified Internet Researcher (BCIR): Russ Moon

A few years ago, a man with a polite demeanor and accent that I couldn't quite place made it to my extension at Broadlook. He should not have. It was rare that my door is shut; a sign to my staff that I was not to be bothered. I was working on the specifications for the 2.0 version of Broadlook's Eclipse tool. On the call was Russ Moon and I decided to give him a really hard time as he broke into my fortress of solitude. I did give him a hard time, but he was persistent and we eventually had a… Continue
