The Dreaded Word...Metrics



In my experience most Recruiters or Human Capital Sourcing and Talent Acquisition Specialists (I like writing that:)) dread the word Metrics. I will agree that in our profession the most basic Metric is number of hires in a defined time frame ie 30, 60, 90 etc days. Oversimplified? Yes I do believe it is.



Metrics is much more than that. Metrics, when used correctly, is a road map for the successful hires. Allow me to outline some KPIs.

Job Insecurity caused by the media?

So, UK unemployment figures have now risen above two million for the first time since 1997. This has led suggestions there are now 10 job seekers for every vacancy advertised currently with the job centre.



Although there is an increase in unemployment and a decline in current vacancies these figures could be doing more than just stating unemployment statistics. There is more competition for current vacancies, but as the media repeatedly report that times are tough and jobs are harder… Continue

Looking for a job? Make yourself easy to find!

Whether you are actively looking for a job or just want to hear from recruiters from time to time, you have to get on the radar of executive search firm and staffing agency recruiters. Once you are found and entered into the recruiter’s database, you will hear about all those unadvertised jobs everyone has been whispering about.



To understand how to be found you have to think like a recruiter. Recruiters aren’t just looking for people that are looking for… Continue

Sunshine from the rain

I was getting depressed earlier this week. Things were getting tough at work, the recession was knocking on the door, I had a proper look at my taxes coming due, I was tired and I read a few disturbing articles.







One, I must say I was pretty late on. It was an article from November which reported on the fact that an employee in Sydney for global giant EDS… Continue

You can't just give the candidate everything they want

For whatever reason, people don't tend to appreciate the things in life that take little or no effort. Think about the lucky kid whose parents bought him a brand new car for his 16th birthday - did he treat it with half the respect you had for the 1962 clunker you spent your life's savings on? Probably not.



Whatever it is, most people have a greater appreciation for that which takes some work to achieve, be it a possession or a new job.



When I think back to the hires I've… Continue

When the Recruiter Becomes the Candidate

Dear Claudia,



I lost my job six months ago. I worked for the company for seven years, and never even once thought of working somewhere else because I loved it so much there. My network is sick of hearing from me; I’ve applied to every job I can find, have interviewed dozens of times, but I’m always the runner-up. I’m beginning to think of myself as a second tier candidate, but I don’t know what I should do differently. The worst part is that I feel so ashamed for not being able to…

Any good or bad experiences Virtual Recruiting in the Healthcare World?

I was recently laid off as a Technical Recruiter. I love the sound of working from home. 100% commission is a stretch, but something I've done in the past. With a Wife and 2 kids it's a harder sell. The company is UMSHealth.com. The support and commission structure look good if you put the work in. Any words of wisdom?

Is Honesty Really Worth It?

Well, well, look who finally decided to remember how much fun it is to blog!



To say it has been one of those weeks sounds so very cliché, but quite true. To say I minded would be a lie, though. Work has been an absolute whirlwind of activity in the last few days and I'm glad to have hardly had the time to justify taking a peek at my guilty pleasure that is RBC.

RBC has to be more than blog posts and pithy discussions; along with more jobs to fill, eventually relocation comes to mind. And the reason for this post.
