Reflections on getting the most out of every conference you attend, or How I got the nickname "the girl that gets around"

I attend allot of conferences.

I think recruitfest was the most profitable one for me last year.

In this interview with Kathleen Kurke, President of the Pinnacle Society, we discuss attending conferences.

Hear some of my tips on how to get the most out of any conference you attend, and get a glimpse into my philosophy on networking at social events like recruitfest09!

Hope to see you there.…

Giving Back

To my fellow 3rd party recruiters & sourcers,

Over 30+ years of working in this wonderful industry of recruiting has taught me a lot. Knowledge gained through experience, mistakes, successes and a lot of shared knowledge from peers, collegues and associates. It would be fair to have described me as a "lurker" and not a participator in the public exchange.

I am extremely grateful to all of you that have so generously shared your ideas, thoughts, tips and tricks over the… Continue

How long is your shortlist?

“What do you mean there is only one person on the shortlist?” Bob exclaimed as I discussed with him the recruitment process for the Environmental Engineer. Despite the tight labor market and war for talent, managers still expect and demand to see between three and five applicants on the shortlist.

One of the flaws in recruitment is that most managers tend to recruit on the basis of finding the best person for the role. Taking this flawed approach to the next level, they will… Continue

Is good recruiting about experience, expertise or talent?

One thing that many years in the recruitment industry has taught me, is that actually in the big scheme of things we know comparatively little. Yes of course we know our industry, our marketplace and even our industry sector very well, but anyone who professes to know much more than that is, quite frankly, stretching the truth a little!

There is more to know about the recruitment industry are than any of us involved in it can ever hope to learn – social recruiting has shown us how… Continue

Elbowing your way into a crowded market

One of the most common questions I’m asked (apart from “Are you British? Because those hyphenated names are always British“) is “How can I compete in (insert your favorite market category)? There are so many competitors!”

(And no, I’m not British).

Well…almost all market categories are crowded. Trust me, this is a good thing. This means that there is business to be had. Yet it’s true that a crowded market means that you can’t simply waltz in with a half-finished job site… Continue

Social media – it’s a tool, not a strategy

I was very reluctant to write this post initially. There has been so much noise about social media, and how it’s going to impact our industry, do we really need another blog on the topic?

Probably not. But the rhetoric and hyperbole about social media has been bugging me lately, and it will make me feel better if I offer some thoughts about how all this may play out.

Lets start ‘big picture’ and then focus in on social media itself. It seems to me that the big issue facing… Continue

The money question

The money question

The money question always comes up in job interviews. If you are a candidate looking at a new position, you can safely assume the person on the other side of the desk will ask some form of the money question. Your answer is difference between moving forward and being eliminated.

In an interview, the employer has four basic questions in mind. However they dress them up, whatever creative spin they put on them, employers really want to know four things:

1.… Continue

Any tips for keeping your in-house recruiting team engaged in a down economy?

Hello all,

This is my first post nice. :-)

Like many companies right now, due to the economic climate, we're not hiring as much as we have been. As a result, my team has went from recruiting on numerous complex positions to recruiting on less than half of what they were used to in a very short amount of time. We are still on target to meet our annual goals and I have been able to keep the team engaged by working on special "extra" recruiting-related group projects… Continue

Recruitment, The Times They Are A-Changin'

Come gather 'round recruiters

Wherever you roam

And admit that the technologies

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You'll be tweeting, and not so much working the phone

If your billable return to you

Is worth savin'.

Then you better start social networkn'

Or you'll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin'.

Come sourcers and researchers

Who connect on LinkedIn

And cast your referrals… Continue

Recruiters: The Sportscasters of Industry

Everyone has an opinion on Recruiting, all levels of a company, and pretty much anyone you meet just on the street. It's always puzzled me yet somehow made sense. Something occurred to me. Recruiters are mostly trespassers.

We are interlopers, we hang out in communities we don't really belong in don't we? We exude expert knowledge in industries we haven't actually worked in. We advise people on career choices in industries we watch yet in the majority of cases haven't participated… Continue
