I had a bad experience last week. A bad experience which quickly rebounded into a good one, I am happy to say.
It was Friday 6 pm. I was rushing to wrap up things at work. Last minute emails to complete. A call from our Director in China with a client issue. A Skype call from our Europe MD. And then my wife on the phone saying don’t forget to pick up the kids.
I race down the elevator to the under-building car park, juggling laptop, gym gear, mobile phone and security… Continue

We have all heard the hype on the baby boomers and the void they will leave in the workforce. In addition, the growing skills gap and talent shortage leave many organizations concerned about the future. This very concern has fueled a talent war as companies compete for highly skilled executives and superior performers to fill the void.

RecruiterGuy has noticed over the years that the words “recruit” and” source” are sometimes used interchangeably. Sourcing is certainly part of the recruiting process, and you may be communicating with candidates during the sourcing process, but it is not “recruiting”. It is the candidate introduction step of the process.
For the purpose of Recruitment Strategy Development we will separate corporate sourcing from third party sourcing. This blog covers corporate sourcing. Depending on… Continue

While interviewing Mark Kurtz for a programming position, Debra Tobin, the head of HR had a smile on her face. The moment that she saw Mark’s resume, she knew that Mark was the high potential talent that Johnson & Company had been searching for to solidify the team. Mark was a recent Stanford graduate with a long list of impressive projects, including working with Oracle on a special integration project with the Malaysian government. Two days after the interview, Mark received an offer… Continue

I’m not quite sure where to begin. Sure – I’ve always dreamed of making one of these lists. Haven't we all? But I thought it would only come after a few more years of putting my time in. So I am shocked to say the least. Thank you everyone!

Hello to all,
It has been a week since I spoke at networking event for www.opportunitiesknocking.com and as I reflect, it reminds me of a blog entry by Seth Godin http://sethgodin.typepad.com/
I had a great time, and I have realized that “eyeballs” is what is going to catapult my professional life to the next level. One way of accomplishing that goal is “leverage” via social media, as well as other avenues such attending networking events, public speaking, radio show’s,… Continue

This has been the year of the Coding Manager search. I have a dozen active Coding Manager searches right now with hospitals all over the country, and these are urgent and critical searches.
Coding Managers are essential to hospitals because the coding of medical records links the services performed at a hospital to the billing generated and the revenue received. Without good coding, there is no cash flow into the hospital.
A Coding Manager must bring both the skill sets of… Continue

As a rookie recruiter many years ago, I was told a by an old hand in recruitment, while we were sharing a convivial drink, that ‘recruitment is simple but that doesn't mean it's easy'. Over the years I have had reason to reflect on the truth of that statement many times and it's hard to fault it.
It still amazes me when I see so many recruiters doing things, or not doing simple things that, if changed, would make an immediate difference to their results. It seems that ‘best practice'… Continue

Having spent most of my career of 20 years identifying and winning customers, I see the process of recruiting talent into the company in a similar light. Let us analyze the process of winning the right customers for a product or services company. First, the marketing team BUILDS a BRAND for the target audience. Then, the sales team is tasked to identify all the potential customers interested in the product by FILLing a sales funnel. It is then the function of the management team to SELECT the… Continue
