Recruiting In The Silicon Valley

On My visit to the Silicon Valley I got to know some really cool recruiters that volunteer their time on the California Professional Staffing Association. They head up the Silicon Valley chapter and welcomed me to the area with open arms. As we ate, drank fabulous wine and shared many funny stories, I began to make some new friends and feel like I was in my second home (maybe it was the wine?).

Our conversation spun from vacation… Continue

A Lesson from Vacation

A few weeks ago, my family and I took our first long vacation in several years. We visited family in Ellijay, Georgia, and we spent some time on beautiful Topsail Island, NC. It’s obviously been a long time since we’ve had a vacation, so my ability to step away from work was a little rusty. In fact, when I found out that our beach house had wireless, I was so excited I did the… Continue

A recruiter friend of mine is in Africa doing some charity work for OneMama.

So Siobhan has been an amazing friend, collegue and business partner of mine for close to 8 years now. A few years ago she got hooked on this idea of going to Uganda to help out in a birthing clinic. She quickly realised that the people in this village were lacking basic necessities for life let alone for giving birth. When she came back to San Francisco she put together a non-profit organization called OneMama with the intention of providing basic healthcare needs for mothers in the… Continue

Human Capital Strategies- Lead Development

From time to time I have had the opportunity to teach my client the power of ‘fishing’ vs. the one time benefit of handing them ‘fish.’ The power and extensibility of creating a repeatable process has many benefits which include having ownership of a passive pool of candidates, creating a branding strategy to build credibility in high potential candidate eyes and the maximum benefit of identifying true ‘A’ players. Contrasted with hiring one talented employee per requisition, and the benefits… Continue

"The day ain't over yet..."

I have had a chance recently to think about sales and why we, as Recruiters, tend to live in a state of denial about the roots of this business. I was one of them. My father was a salesman; I grew up in a house where a million dollars was always waiting around the next corner. Two of my brothers are salesmen; I guess it is in the blood.

I spent my first two years in recruitment telling my boss, "I am not a salesman." I refused to face the fact that what I was doing was the very… Continue

Merry Christmas, Bob (It's Motivation Time, RBC-World!)

A buddy of mine writes articles for a site called (the 'T' stands for testosterone, so they're shooting for a target market somewhat adjacent to RBC :P ) Anyway, he wrote an article titled, "Merry Christmas, Bob" a few years ago . . . an article that I go back to when I need a swift kick in the butt. It kinda reminds me of what being a true-to-form headhunter feels like - it sure aint for the faint of heart. Here she is:

"So, what are you doing for a living these days?"… Continue
