I've been asked for consult on several occasions about whether or not to use job matching systems. Obviously depending on the system my answers will vary although if I'm asked about job matching in general here's my opinion.
Stand alone job matching platforms do not
have a chance against the more traditional models, no matter the economic climate.

Back on May 22
, I noted that Tom Golisano, founder and billionaire owner of Paychex, decided that New York statutory environment was driving businesses out of the state. Under the now - and hopefully single term - Governor Patterson, New York is becoming a place that is unfriendly towards business; unfriendly to business means unfriendly to recruiting.
Yesterday saw an old fashioned coup up in Albany… Continue

In my 18 years of following the staffing and recruiting industry, two cliches have come up now and again.
"Two and out or in for a lifetime.”
This term relates to the penchant of staffing and recruiting companies to hire freshly graduated college kids with limited experience and/or no job prespects in their chosen field. Often these young people would learn the ropes well enough to be functionally effective, then leave after a couple of years to hopefully greener… Continue

Do you know the Future?
One Saturday a couple of weeks ago, my kids and I were driving to an event where community members were being honored for years of volunteering in the community where I grew up, which is located next to the college town where I now live. My parents were some of the people honored, so it was a special time for my family.
While we were driving, out of the blue my son asked, “Mom, let’s talk about the future.” I said sure and asked him what he wanted to know. He… Continue

The best form of communication is an in person meeting or phone call, but when email is required here is a guideline on how to get the most out of your email exchange. 1) Create a subject line that best summarizes the reason for the email. A poor subject line often means your email will be deleted.
2) Do not ramble in your email. Keep it short and to the point. Bullet points allow the reader to quickly scan what is important.
3) Avoid over… Continue

Resumes must die
It is time to revisit this idea again.
You need to kill your resume!
It is especially time for me to kill my resume.
For a lot of reasons.
Me, circa 2007
I dug up an old resume from Careerbuilder that I put out there a long time ago, like in somewhere around 2007.
It looks like this:

This past week it was announced that Roger Penske's company was buying Saturn. This is what should have happened, but not orchestrated by the government and it should have happened months ago. The recruiting industry is impacted more by overall business conditions than most industries, so this is important stuff for all of us involved.

Ok, I will behave myself this month and try not to cause a ruckus. I did learn a new word last blog thanks to Gerry Crispin..putanesca. I think it is some kind of sauce, but also has something to do with women of ill repute. Hmmmm?
So here I go with this month’s blog. Not only am I a recruiter but I am a mom, and I was remembering long ago, when my daughter was little. She had the ears of a well trained hunting dog when it came to the sounds of the neighborhood ice cream truck. She… Continue

There has been a lot of talk and stories written lately about job seekers dumbing down their resumes. For the un-initiated, this is when you leave information (accomplishments and successes) off of your resume because you want to give the impression that you are not as experienced as you actually are. In my mind there are at least three distinct types of job seekers. You are either employed (congratulations), unemployed (help is on the way), or underemployed (probably looking). I think it is… Continue
