Quick post. Rob McIntosh made a great comment on my recent post List Metrics; how to measure quality in a list?. Instead of replying to the comment, I though I’d write a quick post on this, as it is something I have some strong feelings on.
Rob asked, “Who owns list validation?”. Rob goes on to point out that sometimes great lists never… Continue

one of the things i have consistently done in my recruitment efforts is look at the potential of each candidate. while i do not share what my thoughts are on this front with the candidate, i believe it is so important to know what roles you believe the person can play in the future. what it allows you as the recruiter to do is really consult with your hiring managers about what their current needs are and, more importantly, what their future needs are. they can start to game plan a development… Continue

I hesitate to say that I am not an open networker because, to many people, that makes me a completely closed networker and that's not true either. “Open networking” is a term used to describe people who will accept any social network invitation they receive without regard to relationship, approach or justification for the invitation.
Recently I received a call from fellow recruiter / blogger / twitterer Heather Gardner
. Among other… Continue

so, i have been reading recruiting blogs for many years and found them to be incredibly informative for most of that time. in the not too distant past, my company (which will go unnamed) asked me to create a company related blog for each of the markets i served. i resisted most of the time feeling as though i didn't have much to contribute, plus i didn't feel as though i had enough to say. i don't know why, but early this morning i changed my mind and here i go. i someone reads this and finds… Continue

Ten Tips to Move Up When Everything Is Going Down
When economic concerns become a lead topic at the water cooler you know it's weighing on everyone's minds. It's true there hasn't been this much reason for economic concern in most of the working lives of most HR leaders, so we went to those who had been working since the 70's - and even some since the 60's to… Continue

Emotions Run Wild When You Leave a Job!
Who hasn’t experienced a sense of relief after a downsizing, firing, or quitting a bad job? Often, this relief is mixed with a feeling of euphoria; a happiness that has no basis in reality. This euphoria can last for several weeks. How long it lasts depends upon the personality of the… Continue

I've had a question running around in my head for well over a year now... What job sites use Google as their core traffic provider?
So I thought I'd take some time perform some research, using Hitwise, and then it prompted yet another question... What job sites use Indeed as their core traffic provider?
So I took some time and gathered the following one week worth of data from Hitwise (week ending 3/8/2008)
and thought I'd… Continue

In times of economic uncertainty and ever increasing personal taxation do you get a sense that your hard earnt salary is worth less than ever before? Certainly it must be true that working for someone else limits your ability to dramatically affect your income whereas running your own business could allow you to benefit directly from the effort you put in.
Im sure many people think of working for themselves but in the back of their minds enjoy… Continue

Note to members of the LinkedIn group here on RecruitingBlogs.com.

We are going to remove the members from the group who started this and it is my hope that there can be a certain level of respect.
every member of that group has been sent a note about the issue and the guidelines and the option of course to be removed. I hope… Continue

Purple Squirrels and Paranoia: the first SourceCon challenge of 2008 and how I won it.
What a trip, I won the SourceCon challenge. The reasons I did are a mix of luck, timing, help from friends, inspiration, well placed breaks, spying on what the other contestants were doing, some slight misdirection, and some skill. I think with the right mix of those components anyone of the other people participating could've won. The differences between us all were slight.
