Are you an expert or a beginner?

From Our Time To Act:

I may be a bit odd. It is actually quite likely. But one thing that has always seemed strange to me is our level of deference to “experts.” I understand that experts become known as such for a reason and I appreciate the value of advanced educations, years of experience and unique insight. While certainly valuable, I believe that the significance of expertise is greatly over-rated. Experts still make… Continue

for the recruiter---Are skills truly transferable?

In this economy. Does it make sense for a recruiter to consider --Transferable skills????

It is part of my role to influence hiring managers to think out of the box. Many times, that means educating those hiring managers how to read a resume, what questions help uncover hidden talents, and Identifying potential vs. experience in an applicant. This prompted me to inquire to all of you----Are hard skills really transferable? I know that we all need leaders, and that is a skill that is… Continue

I'm just a girl who can't say no

Dear Claudia,

I work for a company that is obsessed with customer satisfaction, which is a good thing – right? I’m not so sure. The way it works in Recruiting is that the Hiring Manager is always right, which means that I can’t ever say no. Want a purple squirrel? Sure, no problem. Want to see 10 more resumes when you already have 5 great candidates ? Absolutely, I’ll get right on that. Want to do things your way, even if it’s backwards and stupid? Ok, great! The tail is wagging…

Was Your Candidate Truly Laid-Off, or Just Plain FIRED?

As a recruiter I do have a great deal of sympathy for the droves of professionals being caught up in the current nationwide trend of mass layoffs. As someone who has been laid off from a job once before, I also have empathy for anyone who finds themselves caught up in a layoff situation.

However, no matter how much downsizing is happening in the market, I still proceed cautiously with a candidate who states that he or she has been laid off. . . . I can't help it, but the little "red… Continue

Why aren’t there female medical sales managers?

This question was posted on my LinkedIn page, along with these comments:

Person with question says:

My company is a perfect example of a large scale device organization with few women. Only 1 woman in an executive position and none in upper management. I have spoken with some women who say they were discouraged from pursuing management positions and have been passed over, for less qualified men.

My conclusion/response:

1. Fewer women in the sciences (narrows the… Continue

Ever been to West Virginia?

If you are reading this, the answer to my question in most likely "no". And for this fact, I am writing this blog. West by God Virginia is known for its "small town" appeal. Down home ethics and friendly neighbors make up the majority of our state. But where does this leave us in today's ever growing technology? And where does this leave me with my profession? I could easily move away as the thousands of others have, but then who would iniciate the CHANGE? Not to change the image of our state,… Continue

Thanks for everything, we're laying you off

So here's the deal: There are a lot of people facing lay offs these days, and as of last Wednesday, I am in the same unfortunate boat, which for a lot of us has a hole in it and is already filled with a lot of water, especially during the holidays.

We have all heard about the economy, the slow down, the massive layoffs expected and the of course the bailouts of large financial organizations failings, etc.

This weekend a brief comment was thrown over a shoulder of a pretty important person, saying that he thought much of the layoffs in Mass. were an excuse for some large companies to downsize and get rid of overhead, people and failing projects. Really an excuse??? My response, I could see 10% of employee population but how… Continue

Upfront or Rude? Is "online me" just plain mean?

Still focusing on candidate experience, I began thinking today about communication style and its role in developing relationships with candidates. My train of thought was de-railed by visions of the application of this question in my newer pursuits of social networking for recruiting. Social media has added a whole new layer to communication with potential recruits in our industry. But this doesn’t mean that the skills we’ve all honed to deal with people via all of our other modes of… Continue
