I was asked a few questions so here is the follow up.
1) When is it big enough? Dunno haven't found out yet, I certainly do not see any downside from have a huge network. We find tons of candidates off Linked in every day. As HTC is a research firm it has become extremely valuable to us. I can't/won't day exactly how many candidates per week… Continue

Real quick wanted to add another tip on how to get more connections on Linkedin. And FYI I'm over 5100 now so these techniques work. That's about 1000 connections in the last month and I've only sent 250 invites out. And another 100+- resends.
Old Invites can be a Gold Mine.
Yea I know you already sent them one invite but somehow it either got ignored or lost or forgotten.
I started going through my old invites and resending the invites to people and they started… Continue

I originally wrote this in April 2008 and posted it to my personal blog on http://htcresearch.blogspot.com
OK I've been getting a ton of people asking me how I built my network on Linkedin up to 4200+. I thought I would share some of my secrets on how I'm getting so many (which is relative) invites (about 100-150 per week). Though I didn't realize they were secrets.
So here's my basic routine.
I started a group on… Continue

Claudia’s Wednesday Wisdom
Claudia Faust advises on tricky situations, answers members' questions...
Claudia has a question that causes her to tread carefully this week, or tip-toe through the tulips at least:
How do you handle an interview when the candidate is preoccupied with a personal issue? I had a candidate this week who insisted she didn’t want to reschedule, even though she was obviously speaking from the bathroom and flushed the toilet many… Continue

My name is Teisha. I have been a member of this group for about a year I believe and I have watched and read the email convos that come through and while some are quite entertaining others are very informative. It appears as though there quite a few, highly knowledgeable people in this group and I would like their advice.
I have been recruiting for about 11 1/2 years and am ready to venture out on my own with a focus in Diversity recruiting. I have worked for… Continue

How do you handle an interview when the candidate is preoccupied with a personal issue? I had a candidate this week who insisted she didn’t want to reschedule, even though she was obviously speaking from the bathroom and flushed the toilet many times during the call. It was obvious she was suffering, and it was really awkward for me to continue. Should I have just cut it off for her relief?

When was the last time you reviewed the effectiveness of your relocation program? I ask this because the value of providing a competitive relocation benefits package becomes more and more evident every day. Although, many employer programs still place a significant amount of the relocation responsibility on the new employee and their families. At the same time, they expect the employee to be on the job and productive from the first day, even though they are dealing with two of the most… Continue

We’ve all heard the horror stories of people getting their identity stolen and having piles of bills to pay, but after reading a privacy quiz on darkreading.com discussing how your personal information can be bought and sold by just about anyone who has it I felt a little uncomfortable. Sure most of the answers I would have gotten correct, and of course I don’t provide such information unless I absolutely have to, but as someone who likes their privacy that was certainly a depressing… Continue

The recruiting world we work in continues to evolve and transform to include more and more technology and less and less face-to-face or voice-to-voice time unless
we take the bull by the horns and demand that valuable commodity that changes everything: personal interaction.
I had the unique opportunity to meet and "network" with several fellow recruiters last week at the Kennedy Info Conference in Vegas. It is amazing what happens when you get a bunch of people together that… Continue

I'm really starting to enjoy my venture into using the collberative nature of Web 2.0 to increase my network as well as knowledge. Today in one of the ERE discussion threads I follow there was a link to one of Shally Steckerl's podcasts - this one related to using the new "Company Profile" feature of LinkedIn that allows you to get all sorts of good information about a company from LinkedIn. You can see who they've recently hired, who's been promoted, what companies people come from and go to… Continue
