What A Stoic Philosopher (A 'Real One'!) Taught Me About Recruiting

If you've sat through a Philosophy course or are just interested in the differing schools of thought, let me toss out a few tidbits and how they shape our view of recruiting:

That's Marcus Aurelius above. If you don't have his post-humous compilation, "Meditations", I'd recommend it in small doses. [Note: Sorry… Continue

Graduate recruiting tip: Go on campus

There's no substitute to meeting graduates in person.

You can gain so much subjective information through a face-to-face meeting that you just can't get in the online version. But you can use the Internet to do a lot of your ground work, including using a recruitment management system to automatically schedule interviews. Click here to read more of the… Continue

Common Job Interview Questions: Prepare for the Expected

Have you ever been caught off guard by a job interview question? It is natural to be nervous during a job interview, and it can be particularly unnerving to be asked a question that you didn’t expect. The best thing you can do to prepare for your next job interview is to put some time into preparing answers to some of the most common and important job interview questions.

Can you tell me something about yourself?

No interview is complete until the interviewer asks this question.… Continue

Seven Commuter-Friendly Companies

If the high cost of driving to work has you beaten down, consider what these seven companies are doing to make life more commuter-friendly:

1) Principal Financial

The Des Moines, Iowa-based financial services firm underwrites a deal with the local public transit authority that allows its 8,000 employees to ride local buses for free, simply by flashing their company ID's.

TGIS (Thank Goodness, Its Sumser!)

Digging Into

John's post today needs no introduction except to say we love it when Papa's grumpy!

Monster Baiting (or at least mental monster baiting)...That's funny because it's a play on words. It's not a mispelling. One of the toughest things about the web is that word play is hard to notice in a sea of bad grammar and terrible spelling. The tsunami of content generated by new publishing…

A Recruiter's Personals AD

The more I think about it the more I come to the conclusion that we need to return to the basics. I was involved in a discussion today about the need for recruiters to learn to create better job postings. There is still a lot of what we used to call spaghetti recruiting out there. For those of you not old enough to have heard that expression spaghetti recruiting is the methodology of throwing enough resumes at a hiring manager thinking one of them simply has got to stick!

As I… Continue

Digging Into v1.15

I've been thinking about writing an article. I want to get back into the groove of daily publishing. Really, it's just about me. I like the discipline. I did it for 14 years. I've taken a year off. I miss it.

I was going to call the article "Monster Baiters".

I wanted to point out the fact that some widely read bloggers seem to make an enormous amount of hay at Monster's expense. It turns out that the harshest critics are deeply supported by Monster's competition. It's hard to…

Share your knowledge about LinkedIn as a search tool. Here are two from me.

Passive Candidates, an Oxymoron?

We all know what active candidates are, they have their resume prepared, they are on the major job boards and they are actively applying to jobs. What is a passive candidate? The common definition is that passive candidates are not actively looking and they have to be pursued.

Are candidates open to job inquiries on, and other networking sites active or passive? The transition from passive to active is a click, literally.

Once a candidate prepares their… Continue

[Job Seeker Blog] Other People's Money

Passive Gamble There are so many options available to job seekers when the job hunt begins that it can be pretty scary to anyone just getting back into the swing of things - and hoping to not swing for too long. Is it okay to just post a resume on this board or should I use that board? Should I try and find the hiring person and flood them with calls or trust that the resume screener will relay the message to the hiring manager of just how awesome I am? Do I take a headhunter seriously or take…

Come On Baby!! The Waiting Game...

Here I am in sweltering Phoenix, AZ, waiting impatiently for a certain new arrival to make an entrance. I am the designated Birth Coach for my sister who is having her second child, and this little boy (Joel) is taking his sweet time in exiting the womb! My view of this process from the Birth Coach side has really changed the way I have traditionally understood this role.

When you have your own kids, and you're the female, you just expect the father to Man Up - be there for you,… Continue

Sourcing is like attending a garage sale

The more I think about this the more it makes sense to me. Everything you need to know about sourcing you can learn by attending a garage sale!! Call it what you will; maybe it is the thrill of the hunt, the thrill of finding hidden treasure, or maybe even the thrill of beating the system. (You know, getting good stuff for a fraction of its value!) If you ever attended one you’ll… Continue
