JMO separating from military uses the medical sales recruiter to land super job stateside…

Here’s a great article for you to see: Military Are Getting Short-Changed On the Job Front, Too, by Teena Rose. I met Teena on Twitter. She is the head of Resume to Referral, which provides resume-writing and career services for mid-level career to executive professionals. In her article, she talks about her husband’s career transition from the military to the private sector and the lessons he learned, which can be helpful for all of us–the main one being: don’t count on the military (read: one… Continue

What if they held a war and nobody came?

Just like the 1960-70 era peacenik's phrase, what if companies went to colleges to recruit but no one was there to interview?

"The rising cost of college — even before the recession — threatens to put higher education out of reach for most Americans, according to the biennial report from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education."

In today's NYT, this article discusses the… Continue

"…who would you fight to keep?"

"You have two employees, both technically competent, but you

can keep just one of them. What abilities or behaviors do you

look for to determine which employee will stay and which one

will go?"

There was remarkable agreement to that question from CEO's,

managers, supervisors, human resource directors, employers,

and business owners.

In fact it came down to eight high performance abilities to

determine which employee to hire,… Continue

social networking etiquette

I just had a candidate completely ruin their chances with my hiring manager because they didn't understand proper online "social" etiquette. It is easy to get too get a false sense of familiarity with people sometimes, which sometimes have the less desirable effect of looking like a ciber-stalker.

Anybody have any thoughts on the subject or war stories you would like to share?

Here is a brief excerpt for your enjoyment. This was sent to the CEO of the company, for… Continue

Cricket Cricket... Taking Advantage of the Deafening Silence

It's quiet right now... deafeningly quiet. It used to be that the office was abuzz with murmured telephone conversations, the "hold" buttons on the phone lighted up and twinkling, reminding us that more than one person had called us at once and were waiting patiently to speak with us. Now we are making calls out and receiving calls in, but it seems as though they are less fruitful. And less frequent. I actually jumped in my chair a little bit when the phone rang in here about an hour… Continue

Brighter outlook for '09?

I’m an optimist so I look at things with a slant towards the positive, but I’ll give you the straight story and let you know that things are looking tight all over. As a recruiter who has been through three recessions in my career I know there are only a few things to do to get more business (make more placements) and that’s making more calls to earn the business of old and new clients alike and continue to get better at our jobs (through automation, training, better industry knowledge, etc.).… Continue

Life in NYC recruiting

I just had a candidate disappear on me. We wanted to set up an interview and he is not taking my calls or answering my emails. How very rude.

Google Maps for Recruiting...

PremTech I've received a few requests asking about how recruiters can use Google to better source candidates or streamline some recruiting efforts. Since I was actually in the process of playing with some Google Maps mashups when the last request came in I thought I'd hit on some neat things recruiters can do with Google Maps. First let me say that I'm by no means implying that Google is… Continue

The Rise of the Twitterati (per Kathleen Parker)

"In the Information Age: Knowing equals Being." - Kathleen Parker , Washington Post (may require free sign-up - worth it if you want to follow the DC political scene)

She asks, "Come to think of it, how long before we begin to expect, if not demand, that public officials twitter?" I think she has something here: Shareholders should demand that executives twitter… Continue

Drink 'em Pretty

Dear Claudia,

Is it unethical to recruit in a bar? A friend of mine says that alcohol and recruiting do not mix because people tend to make stupid decisions under the influence; I say that some of my best placements have come from strangers I met over drinks. What do you say?

Cheers in Boston

Dear Cheers,

Oh, for crying in your beer. I say that it’s a mark of a slow economy when recruiters have nothing better to do than argue the ethics of… Continue
