Looking through Glassdoor Darkly

Businessweek looks at a new startup,, here. The company has an impressive pedigree and a nice looking site, but we think these types of “review your teacher/company/cafe” products provide anecdotal but not really actionable data. Fine for selecting a muffin but less useful for negotiating a salary.

The use of self-reported survey data is an established protocol for putting together… Continue

Wednesday Wisdom: Defending the Ugly Client

Dear Claudia,

I have been told by several candidates recently that hell will freeze over before they'll consider working for one of my clients. Since this seems to be a growing trend of feedback, what is my responsibility as a recruiter? Should I just sell the company to candidates in spite of its reputation? Or do I tell the company what I’m hearing on the street? I’d like to keep them as a client if possible.

Stuck in the middle

Hi Stuck,

Trying to improve my selling skills...

I am a corporate recruiter for Microsoft Canada. Recently, I have decided to work on my sales skills, since I dont get toooo much practice on the job. You can imagine how the Microsoft Brand itself goes a long way towards attracting candidates to my opportunities.

A good friend told me about Jeffrey Gotimer's "Little Red Book of Selling". I just started it, and am only on the first principle, Kick Your Own Ass! (because no one else will do it for you). I can already see how… Continue

Cyclical markets require adjustments

Six months ago most Information Technology recruiters were still telling their client companies how it was a candidate driven market and that yes they had to pay more, be less picky and if need be pay to relocate candidate. While that may still be the case in some corners of the world we are seeing the market evolve, and in turn our message to our clients & candidates must change as well.

So as the economy slows, companies, in turn, slow their hiring process, and it’s causing a… Continue
