ZoomInfo’s greatly enhanced business database helps uncover information on small and medium-sized companies.

Talent Is The Problem

(April 03, 2009) I spent the first part of this week at the San Diego ERE Expo. It was an amazing get together with lots of interesting people. Everyone from the north and the east was celebrating the climate. It's not such a big thing for those of us who already live in paradise.

As I watched and listened, I started to realize that we're witnessing a sea change. Our little universe is transforming along…

Employment Brand: What is Yours?

All companies have a company employment brand. It’s their earned reputation for how they treat their employees.

A corporate brand is shaped primarily by three things:

1. How a company actually treats its employees.

2. What those employees say to other people about how they are being treated.

3. What the company’s ex-workers say about how they were treated… Continue

Recruiting begins at 50

Last week, I turned 50. The number means very little to me; to my parents it’s a sign that either they've lived too long or God has larger plans for them.

That wasn't me writing that last sentence; it was my Jewish mother - the one who still reads the obituaries on Sunday just to gasp at the ones who died of an obscure disease so she can tell my Dad, "See Charlie? You make fun of me but people die of those things." Of course, this is the same woman who once told me that her… Continue

Recruiting must be more than just skills matching... doesn't it?

There was an interesting discussion I was part of the other day, which culminated from a blog post I read over on where Jane was questioning her own ethics and morals when put in a position to make a placement with a candidate she essentially thought was a jerk. (it was weird, refreshingly so, not a mention on Social networking, technology, or the recession anywhere in the post) Interesting… Continue

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

The sun'll come out Tomorrow

Bet your bottom dollar

That tomorrow

There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about


Clears away the cobwebs,

And the sorrow

'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck in a day

That's gray,

And lonely,

I just stick out my chin

And Grin,

And Say,


The sun'll come out


So ya gotta hang on

'Til tomorrow

Come what… Continue

Two-Way Street: Interviewing your boss-to-be

Bill and Richard over at their Contented Cows blog write about being choosy about your next boss. Ask your potential manager some pointed questions then be prepared to drill down into their answers:

* What’s your proudest moment thus far as a manager? Listen carefully for “I answers” as opposed to “we answers.” Is this person a narcissist (a legend in their own mind), or someone who… Continue

Broken English: The reason behind the Binghamton shooter

People had made fun of Wong due to his difficulty speaking English, leading him to feel "degraded," his loved ones told police.

Wong was recruited to his present job - the one he was laid off from this past November; I wonder if the recruiter was aware that existing employees were prone to teasing other employees about their language skills?

Most Requested Reason for Applicant Tracking System Newcomers

Since the beginning of the year, I have spoke with an increasingly large number of applicant tracking system (ATS) newcomers. While one might expect the main reason for the influx to be reducing costs in general, there is a very specific goal almost all have in common. They wanted to manage the large number of candidates applying for positions. Of course this can easily be correlated with the current unemployment rate at 8.5%. One HR professional from a smaller organization said she had over… Continue

Survivors Guilt

My phone is ringing off the hook. My email box is flooded. Every few minutes or so, my Twitter notification pops up with an update from @adagencylayoffs. I am reading Facebook status update after status update about another friend losing their job. Vendors hurting for business, willing to offer any sort of deal to just get something going. Third party partners pulling out the big guns by saying, “Did we do something to personally offend you? If so, what can we do to make it up to… Continue

Are we doing all we can as recruiters? It seems that when things heat up in the staffing business, recruiters tend to be more on their “A” game, so to speak. Now, there just aren’t as many positions to fill as in the past. With fewer positions to fill, recruiters may become discouraged and sometimes overlook the steps vital to filling open positions.

The recruiting business is competitive and can be quite challenging, but it’s what we do when we are faced with those challenges that… Continue
