Talk To Me

Kids go through phases. Thanks God they are “phases” since that word implies there will be an end eventually. We are currently in Round Two of my six year old son in Melt Down Phase. He’s a little guy but he has some big feelings and when he feels they are stepped on, we hear about it. Right now, if you look at that kid the wrong way, we hear a lot of phrases like, “You don’t understand! I wanted that spoon! It’s my favorite spoon and I never get to use it because Ruby always has it (sob sob)… Continue

Casting Director is another word for a Recruiter.

For tonight, I'm thinking that being a recruiter is like a casting director. It would be like working for a producer who wants to make that block buster movie. I'm thinking of the movie- The Dark Knight; directed by Christopher Nolan. Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart. Batman, Gordon and Harvey Dent .

This movie blew me away since the star of the movie was Heath Ledger. He was the one that carried the movie- he was perfect for the Joker character. This is an… Continue

The burnout from trying to keep up with Recruiting Technology - My first blog

Technology in the recruitment and application world have grown exponentially over the last five years. If you're like me, you're probably busting your butt to try and keep up with the latest and greatest. Online sites like CareerBuilder and Yahoo Hot Jobs tell you not to spread yourselves too thin and to only concentrate on those sites that work for you. My problem is I am having trouble finding enough time to either figure out which sites work for me or do the research to see which sites are… Continue

Pssst... Have you seen THE list? It's no secret that I'm a fan of Craigslist. I've been a fan since 1996 when I was first told about a great little mailing list that was locally run. (I'm from the Bay Area.) You see, Craigslist didn't start as the whopper of a site that it is…

Well, it IS Friday - can you say "Jello Shots"?

Now don't get the impression I'm encouraging you to overdo this weekend, and certainly don't think that I will (I'm very conservative you know).

That being said (because everything on the net is immortal), here are some suggestions for you on how you might choose to spend your evening:

Traditional Jello Shots

10oz Vodka

2 (3 oz) packages of Jello

2 cups boiling water

1 cup cold water

Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Dissolve… Continue

You can't control candidates, but you can control the process

John Sumser posted a link to that article discussing candidate control. Which got me thinking back to my agency days as a senior recruiter and some of the common mistakes I'd see over and over with newer recruiters. Candidate control was always brought up when a sure thing placement would fall apart at the last minute. But it wasn't really candidate control that was to blame, because I don't think you can or should seek to 'control' a candidate, because that would imply that you would be… Continue

Ways to SCAMPER for a Job

You can learn a lot from books.

The solution to almost any problem can be found in a book somewhere, and that includes problems you may be having with your job search.

In fact, there's one book I've used since 1996 to generate creative new ideas -- at will -- to produce job-hunting breakthroughs for my clients and readers.

Here's the funny part: It's not even a book.

It's a collection of 56 idea-generating cards, called, "Thinkpak: A Brainstorming… Continue

Job Board of The Future

My latest press release, please tell me what you think:

The internet has made the job posting and job hunting process in many ways more convenient and efficient, enabling companies and individuals to expand geographical reach and to have access to dramatically improved communication tools. With dozens of job boards available however, the level of service is broadly uneven.

“Candidates are looking for simplicity and employers are looking to reduce costs…” says InovaHire… Continue

Today John contrasts coal with diamonds and asks:

Is recruiting a manipulative sport where human beings are precisely "Capital"? ...or is Recruiting a graceful endeavor where team building and consequence matter?
Why don't you dig in and see what you turn up: Digging Into v1.16

Digging Into v1.16

Manners are everything.

Yesterday, I read the most obnoxious piece of Recruiting propaganda that I've ever seen. I've been wading through crap for many years. This particular nugget is in a category of its own.

Here's the offensive nonsense:…

Does culture attract talent?


Are you an alpha factory taking newly graduated Ivy Leaguers and stamping out the future CEO's of tomorrow or are you wearing cargo shorts, Teva's with socks and banging out code while your golden retriever sits at your feet? Either of these cultures has their benefits and attract their specific target audience like clockwork. But not every company has an identified culture, or at least not one that is a selling point when attracting top candidates. What sets you apart? How are you… Continue

Sample Interview Questions and a New Buzzword!

There are a lot of buzz words floating around in business these days. Mentoring, Coaching, Paradigms, Teamwork, etc… But I’d like to give you the scoop on really impressing someone who is interviewing you for a position. I like to call it the New Buzzword- WORK ETHIC.

I’ve interviewed numerous people for positions and fellow colleagues ask me what it is that impresses me the most from applicants. It is too easy to ask people to tell if they’re a team player or if they’re coachable.… Continue
