Recruiting In a Downturn Economy

As a third-party recruiter, I have received many articles and webinar invitations revolving around recruiting in a downturn economy. I would be interested in having an open dialogue with recruiters and corporate talent acquisition teams to see how they are handling our current economy.

Note: I do not open this as a camplaining session as we can all do that, but rather hopefully gain insight for the overall benefit of the group.

At the heart of the matter...

At the heart of the matter…where the real struggle lies.

Had an interesting conversation with a client this week that has stayed with me now for a few days. We began working with her team a couple of months ago around issues of diversity, inclusion, and culture change and have done some really good foundational work. The workshops and dialogues that I have facilitated have been well received and generated a buzz of ideas, questions and energy. I have even received several… Continue

Ethics in recruiting, abortion, waterboarding, affirmative action, gay marriage, religion

Perhaps this will come as a surprise to some in this community but recruiting leads to winners and losers - someone receives a new opportunity and others are left to (a) fill in the holes left by someone's departure and (b) others are "hurt" because they weren't selected for the new opportunity - as a candidate and in all likelihood as internal candidates on both sides of the departure. This scenario cascades because like the… Continue

All that Internet socializing really isn't bad for teens

“It certainly rings true that new media are inextricably woven into young people’s lives,” said Vicki Rideout, vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation and director of its program for the study of media and health. “Ethnographic studies like this are good at describing how young people fit social media into their lives. What they can’t do is document effects. This highlights the need for larger, nationally representative studies."

“But their participation is… Continue

Treat Your Candidates with Respect

I am a full life cycle recruiter so I like to stay on top of all the new sourcing techniques out there. Today I attended Geoff Peterson’s wonderfully informative, free webinar 30 Recruiting Strategies in a Downturn Economy. (Not sure "attended" is the correct word. What DO you call it when you sit at your desk and listen in?)

Geoff covered all kinds of techniques for using new media – Twitter, Facebook, podcasting, etc. to attract and source passive candidates. For more… Continue

.........'I wish I did too...'

10th Grade

As I sat there in English class,

I stared at the girl next to me.

She was my so called 'best friend'.

I stared at her long, silky hair,

and wished she was mine.

But she didn't notice me like that

and I knew it. After class,

she walked up to me and asked me for

the notes she had missed the day before.

I handed them to her.

She said 'thanks' and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

I want to tell her, I want her to… Continue

Competition to All ATS Vendors

The number of applicant tracking system (ATS) vendors has steadily grown over the past several years and continues to grow today. In what I believe to be one of the fiercest competitive arenas in software, vendors are evolving their solutions and offerings in an attempt to standout from the rest of the pack. Company reputation, price and feature sets are the main components vendors struggle to balance in an attempt to become profitable. However, there are challenging forms of competition… Continue

Don’t let the numbers deceive you…

The media is painting a scary picture otherwise known as the labor market. Last month’s unemployment numbers are another brushstroke. Over the past 18 months, 3.3 million workers have become jobless. There are currently 10.1 million unemployed workers in this country since late 07.

The unemployment rate is at 6.5% and the under employment rate, which measures the number of people only working part-time, but looking for fulltime work, is at an all time high of over… Continue

There is no future in any job. The future lies in the man who holds the job.

George Crane uttered these words. Recruiters are facing difficult times right now. The demand for our expertise has diminished greatly. Companies are firing people and it is our job to find them jobs. Well, when most of the companies are letting people go, our own job is in jeopardy. IT sector has been hit dramatically during these crises. Technology is one of the areas that gets hit hard during economic turmoils. After all, IT is not a necessity like health care and… Continue
