Why Can’t the Recruiting & Staffing Industry Operate More Like the Real Estate Industry?

In the real estate industry both buyer and seller can have a representative. A listing agent represents the seller after securing an exclusive right to market a property. A buyer's agent works to find the right property that meets their client’s requirements. A listing agent will almost always post their listing with a multiple listing service (MLS) to achieve the maximum exposure for the listed property. A buyer's agent knows to go to a MLS to see what properties are available that meet the… Continue

Big Mistakes You Could Be Making At Work

What you consider to be innocent small talk, bonding with co-workers, or just doing your job, may be doing more damage than you think.



Work Mistake #1: Talking Politics



If you are talking politics at work and a co-worker bashes your candidate preference, how do you feel? I would assume a little upset. You may also feel that they are uninformed or ignorant. Now, imagine how that co-worker feels if you do the same to them? Eeek! Not everyone is the same, some people just… Continue

Most Common Phone Interview Questions

The Phone interview plays a crucial role in a candidate’s pre-hire process. This means that the employer has reviewed the candidate’s resume and or application and they are showing some interest which is a positive step forward, although the candidate is still far away from being hired! The phone interview in many cases may be a make-it or break-it for many candidates as this is mainly a way for the employer to verify if the “you” the candidate are both a cultural and technical fit for their… Continue

Phone Interview v. Live Interview

While there is a purpose for a phone interview and a purpose for a live interview, which one is more beneficial?



The phone interview is often used as a way to screen potential candidates while a live interview is used to further understand potential candidates. But what if the screening process was flawed? That’s right, flawed. While some beneficial information is gathered during a phone interview, even more beneficial information is left out. This could result in you selecting a bad… Continue

Job Interview Handshake #1: Palm Up

Cost of Recruitment

The growth of the e-recruitment industry has been fuelled by the adoption of technology and internet penetration. Organizations have cut costs by almost 80% over traditional recruitment modes by moving over to the online recruitment process. Recruiting online is ideally more focused, fast paced, effective, and gives higher ROI on administrative expenses.

Body Language During An Interview

As we all know, actions speak louder than words. While you may be saying one thing, your body may be saying the complete opposite. So the next time you interview a potential candidate, focus not only on what they are saying, but what they are doing while they are saying it.



Eye Contact: Eye contact helps to regulate the flow of communication, increases credibility, and conveys interest.



Swinging or Rocking Leg, or Tapping Fingers: Shows the candidate is bored and… Continue

Illegal Job Interview Questions and How to Handle Them

As posted on the MN Headhunter blog:

Guest post from Communicating Your Way to Success

Interviewers and interviewees alike are often unaware that certain questions asked during a job interview are considered illegal questions. Now by "illegal", it doesn't mean that someone will get arrested for asking such a question, but it does mean that the interviewee is not required to…

Tax Professionals - an enigma

What's up in finance today my friends? Why can't a Recruiter find a good Tax Professional? Are they buried in numbers and afraid to come out? Do they find social networking boring? Could it kill them to post an occassional resume out there?

Maybe its just that no one wants to move to Florida, we have fun here, really... I am throwing out the white flag. I'll clean them up, make sure their ear hairs are shaved and eye brow hairs get trimmed.



Have a lovely month my… Continue

Contingencies on an offer aren’t a joke

I heard a mortgage horror story the other day from a friend as he was buying a new house and selling his town home. He had arranged to have back to back closings to make it easy, but as it came time to close on the sale of his house the buyer was a no show…it seems that he had just lost his job and now was not in a position to qualify for the loan, much less make the payments. He very quickly was put in the position where he was being pressed to make a decision on signing his closing papers… Continue

Tony Snow Teaches Recruiters

Kris Dunn learned this from the president's press secretary:



Critics should prove they can do better

Tony criticized the president's communication policy and was willing to step in to to fix someone else's mess when asked. (Don't criticize unless you can do better?)



If you're nice, your enemies will be nice, too.

Tony took the "high road" when he could have… Continue

Captain-Save-A-Candidate to the Rescue!!!! ("Up, up, and away!")



Ok, well . . . not really. In putting on my cape this morning, I looked in the mirror and realized I more resembled these lil' fellas than the Superman cartoon character :P



Which leads me to ask . . . do you think a candidate would more trust one of these guys or the super-buff, super-slick, original Superman?



How about Gen-Y versus a Boomer?



With all the time spent on the art of neuro-linguistics programming,… Continue
