one of my favorite business speakers and authors. So I wanted to share this article I received today because I think it applies directly to recruiters and our work-life.

Think back to the last time you shopped for a car or house.
Did you go into the process intent on selecting the lowest priced?
Of course not.
So why enlist a service provider solely because they were the lowest priced?
Tempting as it is to take a bargain, base your decision on a more enduring factor: performance.
Ask yourself, what is performance worth?
The decision to use a service provider goes way beyond saving money; it is to make money.
Make sure your… Continue

2008 - the year of change! For many reasons I will not go into on this blog, but here is one that I will talk about.
I am psyched that after months of work by our development team, we have launched the new ERE.net
site! This is a good change.
You may have already seen the changes, but if not you should head over to http://www.ere.net and see for yourself. While the first thing you will notice is a new look, there are a whole bunch of new… Continue

"If you argue for your limitations..... you get to keep them!"
- (From Jonathan Livingston Seagull
A few years ago a short book came out that swept the corporate world as a whole. In fact, my corporate office sent me a box of them for my staff and even some to distribute to my clients (which was a nice thought, but ultimately most of them already had it from THEIR corporate office). The book was called “Who Moved My Cheese?”

"The 12 Rules of ART" are a series of action guidelines I have adopted over the last 15 years in this business, which together form a functional roadmap of my core business philosophies, strategies and practices. Some of them I coined and some of them I stole, but all of them are good.
I have decided to share them with all of you here at recruitingblogs as a way to thank and repay you for all the great motivation and techniques I find here every day. I hope you find some value in… Continue

My scheduled guest cancelled on me again -- this is getting sickening -- so I corralled a real scientist, Cliffy Mintz
, to be the guest. He was a recruiter for five years and now he advises scientists (who appear to be total losers) in their careers. If you want to call in or simply listen you will find the info at.recruitingshow.com

Looking through Glassdoor Darkly
Businessweek looks at a new startup, Glassdoor.com, 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

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.

Each moment brings an opportunity to be a part of a "community," be that in line at Best Buy or in the waiting room of a doctor's office. Susan Burns led an insightful conversation/chat with many opinions and free-flowing ideas this Tuesday... I feel lucky enough to have been a part of that exchange.
There are many communities that each of us belongs to...
Some of mine include: family, school, work, friends, PTA, theater, neighborhood, co-ops and a few online communities... It… Continue
