Social media – it’s a tool, not a strategy

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.

The money question

The money question

Any tips for keeping your in-house recruiting team engaged in a down economy?

Hello all,

This is my first post 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

Recruitment, The Times They Are A-Changin'

Come gather 'round recruiters

Wherever you roam

And admit that the technologies

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

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

Deal Maker or Deal Breaker, Which are you?

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
