Social Forums - Recruiting (How To)

Last week I went through a rash of bashing related to Recruiters' over-use of the Social Networks like LinkedIn, Ning, Facebook, etc... This week I'm going in a different direction. I am going to recommend and discuss some effective alternatives to big board recruiting that you may or may not have been utilizing yet, but that I find to be very helpful.



The topic for today is...FORUMS!!! (social forums)



Let me preface this by saying I am absolutely not (in NO way)… Continue

Hello All,



Are any of you currently seeking this hard-to-find talent?

One a day- for Recruiters – Complete multivitamin plus more for Recruiters*?

Just imagine how simple it would be; one pill a day and everything is just great!

This pill would give you all the energy and insights to handle everything about

recruiting during the day. Wouldn’t it be great if we could go shopping for a

bottle of One a day- for Recruiters?



Since there’s no such bottle, what do you do to supplement your recruiting health?

What I mean by this is, how do you maintain the competitive edge during this

uncertain economic time?… Continue

Be the Deliberate Creator of Your Life

1. Commit to building a "prosperity" mindset

2. Adopt the beliefs of success

3. Be clear on what you want

4. Clear away any opposing beliefs

5. Take inspired action not frantic action

When you are proactive, you don't focus on what the economy or the market is doing, you are coming from an internal state of prosperity consciousness. You don't look to outer conditions to determine your state of mind, you determine your own… Continue

Recruiting (Sourcing?) Ads That Get Attention

"Men wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages. Bitter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success." Not much of a sell job is it? Nevertheless, when this ad was run by the polar explorer, Ernest Shackelton, men started walking across England to get to him. More than 5,000 applied.

India Day 14



I can hardly believe that I’ve been on the road in India for two weeks. This place is huge and my travels have included thousands of miles of bumpy roads. From Delhi to Lumbini, Nepal, down to Bodhgaya, back to a more cosmopolitan Delhi and ultimately to Dharamshala.



Whew.



Grass huts and cell phones. Extreme poverty and extreme wealth. Demonstrated diversity everywhere you look. Prudishness and a lack of privacy. Televisions in every hut and roads… Continue

Layoffs are good?

I bumped into a friend of mine, a fellow recruiter that got laid off. He looked great. 10 years younger and chipper as I had ever seen him before. I asked him he why he was in such great spirits, he got let go from a good job, has two kids, a stay home wife and a mortgage. Why is he acting like he won the lottery?



He wasn't expecting to be let go. It just happened. A life changing moment he explained. The economy sucked, companies were downsizing, and given a two month severance, my… Continue

LinkedIn, Twitter, Social Networking - RECRUITING is SPAM

There is a situation brewing in the world of Social Networks and Recruiting today that I believe is becoming a real problem. I've been in the Recruiting Business about 8 years. I know...I know...I'm not the "seasoned veteran" like some of you 20+ years veterans, but I think I've cut my teeth pretty well and have a good feeling for what is happening in the industry.



I've heard all the rage about LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Ning, etc... and I've heard people for YEARS telling… Continue

Banished!! A Few Words That Should Be Eradicated From Resumes... and Society In General

Are there any words in the English language that bother you simply for the way they sound as they roll off your tongue? The positioning of your lips as you pronounce the word? Am I the only one irritated by this type of thing?



Take, for example, the word "pudding." Although I don't think that the word pudding (or the DESSERT pudding) should be eradicated, it certainly is a strange word to say. You just have to watch the person's mouth who says the word..... "pu... dding".… Continue

RFL: Employment Branding: In-House or Outsource?

My original thought process when developing this seminar and webinar was to provide HR directors and business leaders with a blueprint to help them increase their hiring success, thereby elevating their employee retention and productivity, and reducing turnover costs. I am from a marketing background, and understand that much of the information and expertise provided by an employment advertising ageny or recruitment advertising agency, can be learned and developed internally by the in-house… Continue
