There's some great new content posted on the MagicMethod site that you… Continue

Investing in Human Capital: Modern tools to ensure success

Winston Churchill once said, “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.” An organization, be it a country or a company, is only as strong as the people who drive the process and agenda for that organization. In the modern business environment, Human capital is the driving force behind success and in many cases failure.

The modern global economy has brought down barriers and opened up the market place. Under the mounting competitive pressures, many managers lose… Continue

Recruiting in a vacuum

Having spent almost a year in my current in-house role I've started to reflect back on where I came from. I took a look at my previous agency experience and compared what I did there to my current responsibilities and realized that although accidental, the format of my last job prepared me very well for what I was walking into.

The setup was such that every recruiter had one skill set within which he or she was to become an expert. The thought was for each recruiter to become fluent… Continue

8 tools to find semantic similarity between words

Semantic net

The big news this week has been Google announcing their use of semantics to enhance the performance of the search engine. This will not come as a surprise to computer scientists working in the language field (IR, NLP etc…). There are also already quite a few semantic search engines around like cognition for example. I think we were waiting for Google to take this step for a while and now it has it’s really… Continue

The American Dream…

Will 2009 be the year for Comprehensive Immigration Reform? It’s off to a good start….The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act was introduced – again. The bill would provide a path to U.S. citizenship for undocumented immigrant minors who entered the country more than five years ago while they were under the age of 16 and who complete two years of college or 2 years of military service.

Really this is just a fraction of the real issues with our immigration… Continue

Demystifying the Cover Letter

stressguy1 People get so stressed about the cover letter.

  • Do I send?
  • How long should it be?
  • What should I put in it?
  • Do I put salary requirements in it?
Let's start with the first question. Carol from North Carolina said to me: "When sending in my resume for a job, I don't send a cover letter. It doesn't give me any advantage in getting the… Continue

Recruiting Process and its importance in this economy- we have to learn how to “do more with less” - just like our clients do every day.

A good recruitment process is very important for any company, but in more ways than you may think. The process itself speaks volumes about your company.

The important aspects to look at:

1) Which aspects of the recruiting process are important to you?

2) On a scale from 1 – 5, how important are these aspects for you?

3) How would you measure that the process is performing according to your needs, and how would you know that your expectations are not… Continue

Negotiating a Higher Fee

As a recruiter, how can you command a higher fee?

Well, here’s one idea that sounds almost too good to be true—you simply ask for it. Savvy recruiters know that at any given point in time, there are companies out there with staffing needs so urgent, they'll do whatever it takes to get the position filled.

Like stranded airline passengers who are sick and tired of hanging around the terminal, they're more than willing to open their wallets, just to get… Continue

Preferring dead fish to fresh flowers

There's a story of a woman who sold fish all her life and knew nothing else. One summer day, she was invited to the queen's palace to help prepare a royal festival. When she was shown to her room, she found it filled with fragrant flowers. How disgusting, she complained. Please take me back and let me sleep near my pile of fish.

She choose the stench of fish over the sweet fragrance of flowers because of habit and familiarity. It's the choice of picking the devil you… Continue

5 Concepts for Next-Generation Applicant Tracking and Recruiting Software

It's time to rethink how we gauge our applicant tracking and recruiting software. In the past, companies have touted a system that can 'blast' to thousands of candidates and find a needle in the haystack. This is an old and out-dated way of 'recruiting thought'. True recruiting efficiency will come from applicant management software that promotes teamwork and collaboration between hiring managers and recruiters. Without further ado,… Continue

No Onions! - A sales story

No surprises here, but we’re in a recession/downturn/what ever you want to call it and as always it doesn’t affect everyone (yes, some companies are actually hiring). The difficulty with working with these companies is that they aren’t looking to fill run of the mill IT positions, but instead high end niche roles (ERP experts/BI/DW/Architects/etc.). Additionally they have requirements for specific technology skills, and with only one or two hires for the entire year these people have to be… Continue

Baby Boomers, Gen Xers Collide At The Retirement Door

DALLAS, Texas (March 31, 2009) -- As unemployment numbers continue their worrisome climb, and as the stock market moves erratically up and down with so many retirement plans hanging in the balance, I have been thinking lately about the much anticipated shift in the workforce -- as Baby Boomers retire they will be replaced by eager Gen-Xers. For years workforce gurus and insurance actuarial analysts have been proclaiming the arrival of this moment in time. Now that the time has finally… Continue
