An Extra Set of Eyes

I have candidates who try to make huge decisions about potential job opportunities in the first 5 seconds of hearing about the job. They aren’t sure if they want to move to North Carolina or they aren’t completely up-to-speed on a particular account. And then they decline being submitted for that opportunity. It doesn’t make sense to me. Why not get on the phone and talk about it? You may be wowed. You never know. I would give you the same advice.

Chances are, if you’re reading this… Continue

Executive Search - Name Gathering Process.... what's your way?

In the preliminary stages for executive level recruitment, gathering the names is a starter. As per my experience, discussions and readings etc - is it such a standard process of identifying target companies and then use different channels like cold calling, networking, referrals to find the candidates?

Does it differ from company to company? What sub-sections of this process defines the successful ones from others? Also, what's the strategy placed behind the name generation… Continue

Congrats...El Dave, Jason, and the Recruiting Community!

I made a video to congratulate El Dave and Jason on what will most certainly make our community even greater and stronger.

However, you've got to view the video on You-Tube so you can see the annotations I added (it's just too boring otherwise).

Congrats, to Dave, and my unlikely mentor...Slouch.

Check out the video, HERE.

How Relevant is Employee Screening for Transport Companies?

It's outrageous to me, or better yet, that in this day and age, the idea of employee screening programs still have the lingering stigma of a subversive process. I bring this up specifically, b/c I manage a site that produces information, including products and services specifically for employee screening and employee background checks, and during my day today I found myself in a conversation with a gentleman that works for a company that… Continue

Recruiting and Sales

Long have I contended that they were separated at birth. Salespeople and recruiters need to build and maintain pipelines (deals/candidates), networks (no difference) and track close ratios.

"Sell" done well, is NOT a four-letter word. So why then have all the recruiters with whom I've broached that conversation so opposed and seem to distance themselves from sales?

Can't we all just get along?

TKD and the effects of grace

Also from an old blog -

TKD. The letters of this TLA (Three Letter Acronym) are emblazoned in red on the whiteboard at our firm. They're there because I put them there; and they remain there because all of us in the recruiting business recognize the importance of their meaning. Spelled out, the words are Time Kills Deals. Spelled out further, they mean that once interest has been generated, actions must shortly follow as from then on temporal entropy sets in and attraction on… Continue

Hearthunting as headhunting - a lesson in negotiations

From an old blog

The total in and outbound email counter was at 1546 when negotiations resumed two weeks ago and had advanced another 134 clicks when they collapsed for the ninth time, last night**. For all the intensity yet utter lack of success to show for it, you would think that I have been attempting to bring peace to the Middle East instead of simply trying to meet a woman that I first encountered 18 months ago in cyberspace. Certainly anyone looking at this picture… Continue

Bill G's last day

So today was Bill Gates' last official day at Microsoft. All of the employees here at Microsoft Canada - Meadowvale were invited down to the caf to watch the webcast of his last day and conversation with Steve Ballmer on a big screen :) It was really cool to see all of my co workers sitting there watching our founder talk about the early days of the company, his vision, and what he is going to do next. Here in Canada and around the world, Microsoft employees are really feeling the impact that… Continue

Walking and Chewing Gum

We are a fortunate recruiting firm in that our clients often count on us to fill multiple positions simultaneously. It may be a matter of winning some new business and now they have a whole team to assemble. Or, perhaps it just works out that they need a Media Director, an AE, and a Traffic Manager all the same week. We know how to walk and chew gum at the same time, so it’s not a problem.

But here’s the thing…if you can really give me a clear indication of what the priority is, all… Continue

Improving your Onboarding process

Onboarding is the process of acclimating new employees to the work environment. Starting a new employee off on the right foot is absolutely crucial. Yet it is a process that is often ignored or poorly executed. While some organizations understand the need to effectively introduce new employees to their surroundings, onboarding strategies at many companies fall into one of two categories: (1) “Onboarding Strategy? What’s an onboarding strategy”? OR (2) “OK, now that you’ve filled out the new… Continue

John pries open a can of worms for the early birds and reminds us there is more than enough wiggle room for everyone involved in building our "community."

Reminiscent of Papa of yore...

Digging Into v1.9

Did you see Jason's recent email highlighting the conversation Between Josh Letourneau and David Manaster? Josh's post is an attempt to build a conversation about the economic consequences of a downturn on our industry. David's rejoinders move the conversation off-topic and onto the differences between ERE and RBC.
