With the state of the current economy–I’ll go out on a limb and say virtually all companies–are toning down their forecasts for the coming year–battening down the hatchets so to speak. So why would anyone spend money on an executive search firm to find talent–particularly with unemployment running so high?
First, think of how hard it was to get approval to hire that open headcount. Clearly the business sees filling that role in this economy of paramount importance. Otherwise, you’d… Continue

I ran across a listing of applicant tracking system (ATS) vendors the other day when I was reading the Recruiting Nevada blog. I was a bit disappointed to see that JobDig Tracker didn't make the list, so I created my own list. Some are listed by product name while others by company name. I encourage everyone to comment if I have missed some.

We all understand gambling (i.e. the house wins) and its high risks and long shot rewards, but what many people don’t understand is that most recruiters do it everyday and lose.
Contingency search is the bread and butter of our industry allowing companies to view prospective candidates and only incur a fee if they hire the candidate and on the surface it looks like a win-win. However, with the state of the economy many companies are unintentionally using this search model against… Continue

I've had the opportunity to chase a couple of searches in the last six months that were out of my specialty. Two companies wanted local marketing experts, a Seattle company wanted a recruiter, two tech firms wanted some high value placements and I worked on some splits with a friend.
The results were mixed, because I found candidates and made a placement, but the time lost in pursuing candidates outside of the social media field was a real drag on my other business, and the social… Continue

...have people nothing better to do?
We've talked about this for years in recruiting and how inane laws like this will impact recruiting - an entire pool of talent pissed off and possibly looking for another place to live or turning down offers. Shameful.
