Cafepharma: the good, the bad, and the ugly

A lot of people want to know what I think about CafePharma. Here goes: I think that it’s a great source of relevant headlines for those of us in medical and healthcare sales, pharmaceutical sales, laboratory sales, clinical diagnostics sales, DNA sales, medical supplies sales, medical equipment sales, imaging sales, and pathology sales. However, beware of the chat room. There can be a lot of negative information from people who have their own specific axe to grind. No company is as bad as they… Continue

Utilizing Outplacement firms

Hello everyone!

I am putting together a strategy for my company to better utilize outsourcing firms for our delivery model. We are a RPO company and our solutions, tailored to individual clients, cant be one size fits all. I am looking for the following information from other Recruiters/Consultants; has anyone ever put together a strategy and if so, what did it center around? (The biggest firms, niche firms, geography, or something else?)

If their are outplacement… Continue

My Reply to a Discussion Regarding~"Disheartened Recruiters/Members of Linkedin" ~TiffinySmith-Esther~ 7/30/08

Dear ____

I feel the same way you do. I absolutely loved the "whole idea" of Linkedin professional networking and like you, I've accepted every invitation I've received, invited hundreds of recruiters (and others in our industry) to "please join my professional network on Linkedin." Most have accepted my invitation, some are "still pending," and no one has "declined" my invitation. I completely finished my profile at 100% two days ago, and it must have taken at least ten days…

I would like to discuss the amount of stress that recruiters/sourcers experience in their jobs and how to deal with frustrations and angry people. Today (July 29) an article was published that according to research 85 % of recruiters experience a high amount of stress. Apparently they score the highest compared to other professions. Could we… Continue

Care Bears 2.0

I’ll admit that this doesn’t have anything to do with Recruiting. However, it has everything to do with marketing and knowing your audience, so I’m going to post it. It’s all about the Care Bears.

On Vacation I took it ALL off - and it was pure pleasure!

After a full week in paradise – YES, I took it ALL off, the full entire week. It was pure heaven, but was that ever hard for “me” to do. I have trouble taking a day off, let alone a full week.

I’m sure many of you are reading this thinking, so what? She took an entire week off from work, what’s the big deal?

A self proclaimed work-aholic, taking a back seat from work isn’t an easy task. My type “A” personality makes it very… Continue

Being hung up on...

Hello folks;

Recently I have been experiencing a large number of people hanging up on me.

I have been in IT search for over 15 years and this is the first time (past 6 mos) this has happened several times.

I have combined the old with the new as it pertains to name generation.

Is it possible that recently my searches have been within the "Open Source" community or is it the "greenhorns" not properly conducting themselves that fosters negativity to the recruiting community in… Continue

Owning and Leveraging Information in a Tough Recruiting Market

Owning and Leveraging Information in a Tough Recruiting Market

Steve Cherry - July, 2008

Here in San Diego, recruiters have a really tough job when it comes to getting candidates to uproot and relocate here. Add the current economy and housing slow-down to the mix, and you are pretty much sunk if you are recruiting someone from a… Continue

Text Messaging is great but not during a career search!

Great article today in the Wall Street Journal titled, "Thx for the IView!..." written by Sarah Needleman. You can read the article on page D1 or online at

At GoliathJobs, we also consult with schools on best practices such interview tips and proper dress. While I do agree that text messaging has it's place, it does not belong in the career search sector. That would be the equivalent of "Pig Latin" being used in business when… Continue

Is fear keeping you from getting the next job?

In reading several blogs and news articles I came upon something from the Brazen Careerist about how most Sr. Managers (75% that is) are OK with their employee’s job hunting while still working for them, and part of the reasoning is that they would do the same.

Now of course this makes perfect sense because as we all know the old adage is “it’s… Continue

Got an interview? Take a different approach!

We have been using a different approach to prepare our candidates for interviews. We’ve developed an on-line tool that has the candidate generating a solutions based presentation on why they are a good fit for the role. The candidates’ walk into the interview (typically the second interview or first in person) with a printed and bound presentation (call them discussion points) and when the questions start … the candidate says, I’ve put together a brief summary of why I am excited about this… Continue
