Bonus Structure

I had started as a Recruiter about a year ago in a small private practice. This is the first time for this position to be full-time and they came up with a bonus plan for every employee I hire. It's not working and I have nothing to compare it to. Can anyone share with me their bonus structure? I hire Physical and Occupational Therapists in a Medicare part B practice. Thanks!

Park it at the door, missie.

Hi Claudia,

I called a candidate for a scheduled phone interview this evening and after we chatted for a few minutes, I asked the first interview question. She interrupted me suddenly and asked if I would hang on for a moment. I listened as she poured herself a glass of wine (I know this because she offered me some), lit up a cigarette, and picked the phone back up again. Then she said, "Ok, begin". What’s your impression of a candidate like this?

Multilingual recruitment in The Netherlands: why?

So, what's the deal over here? Well, Holland is home to many European or EMEA headquarters of some major international companies (Philips, Shell and Unilever not surprisingly, but also for… Continue

Definition of Insanity - Reading the ERE daily? - by David Szary - Recruiter Academy

Albert Einstein defined insanity as “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting your results to change!”

I often use this quote during my training/speaking engagements to reinforce the fact that creating good habits and/or breaking bad habits is a very difficult thing to do.

In my last blog post, I touched on “attitude” and how it will either positively or negatively affect you, your day, and ultimately . . . your passion for recruiting!

My advice… Continue

Balance Isn't Just A Protein Bar...

RecruiterGuy talks about Balance This week I'm back in the gym like I should be every week (shame on me) and I'm reminded of my slightly peculiar talent (yes, I said it - RecruiterGuy has some peculiarity to him) to correlate my off-work experiences or journeys to goals and missions in my professional life. While punishing my abs and upper body last night I drew a correlation between the creation of (or at my age the maintenance of) my muscles and the 'm4d & cr4zy' skills I try to keep flexed and always honed…

Time is precious

In recruiting, time is of the utmost importance. It is what I tell my clients and my candidates that I won’t waste, and that I’ll respect their time throughout the process as we move to making a placement. However, it seems that both candidates and client companies forget this when it’s time for a telephone screen. Recently I’ve had a rash of no calls from clients and missed calls by candidate requiring us to reschedule it for some later date and not only causing a delay in the process, but… Continue
