A Talent Professional's Strategy for Landing the Big Job

This is how a highly skilled recruiter tackles an opportunity to land a dream job.

I got to know Karla Porter through various recruiting networks over the last year or so, and more closely through Twitter over the last several months. I have grown to respect her opinions, ideas, and her straight forward generosity. So when she sent me a note on Twitter that said basically, "We are supposed to be the experts at this and I have a job interview pending that is making me…

Remember the person that keeps the department together. A Thank You to Admin's everywhere. Office Heroes Extraordinaires.

Just a reminder for those of you with Administrative Assistants. The national day is quickly approaching on April 2010 in the USA. Please remember those exceptional people, who rarely complain, are usually at work before everyone else in the department as well as after everyone else and the busiest people in the department managing the 300 interruptions a day to ensure the rest of us are able to meet and accomplish the goals necessary to ensure the department receives high marks when… Continue

Job motivation

I have been investigating the job motivation area since I see a trend that has evolved since our last major recession in the 2000-2001 time frame. People are looking for jobs, applying for new roles, even leaving positions for uncertain futures during a time when positions are not as plentiful. Why is that? Why is their turnover when people are being laid off by the thousands? Why are the open chairs when unemployment is so high? Motivation and the keys to why people work are becoming of large… Continue

The more I do my job the more I like it

I've previously expressed my views on the role corporate recruiters need to play in delivering a good message on behalf of the company, so it should come as no surprise that I put a lot of effort into making sure any candidate I recruit is really pumped up about coming to work here.

I generally let the candidate take a lead role here, directing me on the tour of my company to the various… Continue

Einstein as an Executive Recruiter

A classic definition of insanity is attributed to Albert Einstein. It was also attributed to Ben Franklin, and the author Rita Mae Brown. I'm paraphrasing, but odds are you've heard it before. The classic definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.

In a market like this, it's easy to attribute a lack of results to the economy. No matter how many "Positive Mental Attitude" pills (metaphorically… Continue

My Blue Weim passed away today....RIP Milly

Millicent Snyder 1993-2009

Millicent Snyder was a blue Weimaraner dog. As a blue, she was subject to discrimination from Weimaraner enthusiasts. That ongoing discrimination just may be borne of envy for the subbreed, because if Millicent was an example of the other blues, the blues are a superior kind of animal.

Milly was brilliant, willful,… Continue

A new take on interviews - PEG LEG

How many times have you gone on an interview, felt things were going well only to never hear from the company again? Maybe you met the entire letter “C” hiring committee - CEO, CFO, CIO, CSO, CMO (you get the point) and thought the connection / spark was there. Three days later you get a call from someone who was not involved in the actual interview, HR or a recruiter, who wants to give you interview feedback. The only problem is this feedback rarely adds meaning or provides insight as to what… Continue

Combating Fee Reduction Requests in Life Science / Healthcare

“We are only working with agencies who are agreeable to our new reduced fee requirements. I am sure that you can appreciate it, with the economy and all.” “Actually we have so many resumes right now, unless you are willing to reduce your fee, we just can’t justify working with you.” Does this sound familiar? If so, listen with a discerning ear. Lessons of 2001 indicate that often this stance is a façade. There are other vertical’s where this is not true but in the life sciences and healthcare… Continue

Layoffs not Needed

I am not sure how many articles I have read over the past months talking about the greed of the CEO and executive leadership even amongst the constant layoffs that our nation is experiencing. In my reading of some of the other blogs, there was a discussion surrounding if there was a suitable alternative to layoffs. I gave some thoughts however did not have a real practical or example of a company that has implemented cost cutting in the face of layoffs to reverse the trend. One has… Continue

Friendships in the Work Place

One of the better blogs I enjoy is the Chief Happiness Officer. If you have not read it, start. All of it does not apply however the approach to looking at the work place and other facets of our lives makes for an interesting read at the minimum. I find that for some people, especially those less likely to be labeled “social butterflys”, there is a good influx of information on how to make work life better overall.

A solid read most recently posted on the subject of making friends at… Continue

Branding as a Personal Search tool

Online branding is becoming one of the critical components of the job search process. I find that as the increasing number of social media outlets come available - the pressure to become involved is rapidly increasing. The rage on Facebook, Twitter, the blogs, etc. There is a tremendous amount of information to digest and for the most the task is daunting.

Released today is a good look at the subject and how to harness the power to have better results. Me 2.0 was released last week… Continue
