The Client Side - Aging Baby Boomers and the War For Talent

Last week I wrote about our industry and the post bubble world and the responses were fantastic and all really helpful from my perspective. Some of the discussion touched on the aging Baby Boomers and the upcoming War For Talent. The thought on the War For Talent of course is that as the Boomers retire there will be fewer workers to fill their slots creating excellent conditions for recruiters and our industry. I buy that argument. The Baby Boom generation has been a powerful force and has had… Continue

The Best Linkedin Invites Ever Written - For Recruiters

I was on the sofa picking my nose and watching MTV, when my Dad shouts, “Get a job!” I reminded Pops that I needed a car to get to a job. He reminded me (again) of my dusty moped. Again, I pleaded how hard it was to maintain a studly image riding a Moped.

“Get a job or find another home!” He ordered.

16 years of building my image – A collection of the finest samples of cologne, Polo collar turned up and advanced technology in Acne medication – all for naught.

It… Continue

Bert and Ernie go to the unemployment line

You know it's bad when our beloved Sesame Street stalwarts are tossed out to the streets. Yes, Bert and Ernie have been given their pink slips.

When icons are impacted, it is no longer an issue of whether one political party is wrong or right.

Chasing a Chinaman Through New Jersey (revisited)

I wrote this blog on my personal myspace page last summer. At the time the company I was working for was going downhill rapidly and I had only been there for a year. I read Claudia's Discussion about the meaning of success and it made me think how far I've come and what a journey it has been. I think one of my strengths as a Recruiter has been being able to identify with my candidates. I've been job hunting more than I care to think about in my life and it's always fresh in my mind how scary… Continue

Operational Excellence: "Nine Things You Can Do To Survive a Down Market"

Nine Things You Can Do To Survive a Down Market (and exit stronger, poised to succeed)

by David Jenkins, Founder, TDnJ Business Consulting, LLC

An economic slowdown is a time of increased stress on business owners of all sized businesses, most severely, however, on small staffing and recruiting business owners. Small business owners have fewer options than larger companies, as well as smaller cash reserves.

The key goals for a small staffing or… Continue

Walking the Line Between "Contact" and "CyberStalking" in This New Age of Social Networking

In today's ever-evolving world of email, blackberries, iphones, twitter, ning, facebook, myspace, linkedin and a plethora of other social networking mediums, it's important to understand that although there is a lot of information readily available about people, there are still lines over which we must not cross when expanding our social networks.

I attended an all-day session of the Recruiting Roadshow that was held in Portland and sponsored by Adidas. One of the key ideas that was… Continue

The Real Pipeline...........

Mergers of late… and of the years past were touted to be all about the pipeline. But is the pipeline the specific compounds that have been moved forward or the physicians and scientists that created them.

I would contend that the select group of intelligent and experienced individuals, who worked so diligently to select just the right compound, are the real pipeline, the real value of pharma and biotech companies.

When the headcount reductions come who will be there rebuild the… Continue

Employment During a Recession?

Employment During a Recession?

It seems the news is the same every day “Recession!” “Poor economy!” “Stock Market down!” But what can you do to make lemon-aid out of lemons during these turbulent times? Especially in regard to employment?

First let’s look at it from the employer’s perspective:

During economic good times, the best performers are quickly snapped up by those “employers of choice” who can pay higher… Continue

UAW cuts hourly rate to minimum wage!

You'll believe anything!

But they did agree in negotiations with Ford to reduce it to $55 per hour with benefits.

This reminds me of a few months back when lots of Lehman Brothers software developers hit the streets and really believed they were worth the $200K+ base they were earning; when sussed out, it was clear that skill-wise they might be worthy of $100K here in NYC.

For so long the… Continue

Waterboarding techniques in recruiting?

"While other forms of intelligence-gathering have benefited from research and technological advances — intelligence officers can intercept telephone and Internet communications or use satellite images to find people — interrogation has suffered from a lack of innovation. And our military lacks an elite unit of highly trained interrogators to call upon when high-level people in terrorist organizations are captured. Too often, the questioning is left to whoever is closest at… Continue

Don’t Hide During the Recession

How’s the view from under your desk these days? I know who you are!! Get out from under the desk. Yes, there is another recession and you’re nervous about keeping your job, yet hiding is not going to help you. Actually, it’s the worst thing that you can do. If your company doesn’t want you, can’t afford to have you -- they will find you no matter where you are. The better strategy is to make yourself a valued player and decrease the odds that you will finally be listening to recruiters when… Continue
