Utilizing the Correct Communication Tool

Years ago before debit card usage became the norm, writing checks for goods and services was commonplace. A friend of mine went to her neighborhood grocery store, bought the items she needed, and patiently stood in the checkout line. When the clerk told her how much money she owed, she pulled out her checkbook and fished around in her pocket for a writing implement. Hand clasped upon a cylindrical object, she drew it out of her pocket and went to fill out her check… until she realized the… Continue

Recruiting Experts Dissed

Jimmy Shack Says:

We at Recruiter Life are privy to some of the most forward-thinking executive recruiters. These are not the obligatory “Knights of the Round Table” type that continuously write the same bland material... while they stroke each others’ egos.... No, these [recruiters in my video] are key players who are making lasting…

Losing Weight With Leptin


Leptin is a hormone tied to your body's use of fat.

When you lose 10% of your weight, leptin falls fast. So, your stupid body thinks you're facing starvation and it tries to protect you by burning 20% less calories -- and even if you're on a diet that can make you fat.

Also, once you start losing weight the parts of your brain running your love of food have more blood in them while the part that limits eating has… Continue

The Right Fit...

I submit to you this video of an interview... gone terribly wrong.

No one was hurt as a result.. I think.

How many of us have taken part in an interview where either the company or the candidate just wasn't a fit? I know that I've conducted one or two interviews with job seekers where we were both wondering 10 minutes into the interview just what the heck each of us was doing there. And yes, I've been on the other side…

Zombie Recruiter Need Input . . . . . . Zombie Recruiter Need Best Practice

Take a bite out of this scenario and chew on it for a minute:

The time has come for the recruiting awards presentation and the recruiting clan is rushing from the tradeshow floor to see who won what and the coinciding presentation on best practices. As the zombie-like audience pours in, several fall over the piles of worthless marketing brochures collected over the last 48-hours. Then, several recruiting organizations are enshrined… Continue

Capitalism vs. Socialism and how about a little feather ruffle while I'm at it?

I can see clearly now the rain is gone...

I have found that approach and pursuit of clients has to be done with their needs first and foremost in my mind. And, actually, this approach is not limited to current or potential clients but also past. The economic needs of my firm or me, personally, cannot be at the forefront of an initial conversation or what interested parties first learn. I can keep a capitalistic mindset behind the… Continue

Job search tip: Choose your references wisely

Recently, I had a candidate who was going to get an offer–it was all over but the references. And that’s where it all went wrong. We began calling to check (yes, we really do that) and two days later, only one was done. It wasn’t even a matter of them trashing my candidate…they just wouldn’t return our calls.

If your references don’t even think enough of you to call back, it doesn’t reflect well on you. It cost my candidate a job.

Choose your references wisely. The best… Continue

Multi-Tasking Making Gen Y The Dumb Generation

I used to think that Steve Rubel was a pretty smart guy but now it seems he's just another dude taking an easy ride on the Gen Y bandwagon.

Steve says "the Attention Crash is entirely generational".

The Gen Yer's, it seems, do a far better job of coping with massive amounts of information. It's not uncommon for a lot of folks to be running Meebo with a dozen IM windows going at once, Facebooking,…

How to Create a Career Page on Facebook and MySpace

In a previous blog I discussed the importance of social networking. Utilizing web 2.0 services gives recruiters the tools to source deeper than ever before, and the ability to find specialized passive candidates. This is only 50% of the equation. To fully implement the effectiveness of Facebook and Myspace it is essential to set up a "Careers Page". Creating the Careers Page offers you as a Recruiter the ability to maintain your own company job site; one that is easily adaptable and very… Continue

Successful Applicants Have High Levels of Testosterone and a Good Morning Workout Plan

An interesting article came out in April about the direct relationship to high levels of testosterone and making money in the day trader profession. The day traders daily world revolves around uncertainty, high-risk, overwhelming information, reliance on instinct, and the having full knowledge that a decision can lead to euphoric wins or catastrophic losses… kinda like a recruiter.

The Law of Attraction or Detraction - It's Your Choice

Just know what you’re choosing. When I first learned about the law of attraction, it was from my coach Jeanna Gabellini, and it was before The Secret came out. While I highly enjoyed the movie The Secret, it was only an introduction to the work of the law of attraction; and there is a lot more to it. In my conversations with recruiters, staffing people, men and women about the job and about life; it seems, at times as if people are confused about what the law is and how to make it really work… Continue
