Recruiting Blogs (16,841) Contest - Add Missouri Members

I don't often make demands of you the readers, but I was looking through, and there are only 26 Missouri recruiters (listing Missouri as a state).

That's crazy - I have more Missouri readers than that on We need to boost that number.

So here's the thing. Contact your Missouri friends, and tell them to join. Add me as a friend when they get here. If we add 50 people from Missouri, I'll put… Continue

Social Networks Improve 'Hearing'...

Social Networking Improves 'Hearing' Every so often I get an email or comment posted on my RecruiterGuy blog that strikes a chord with me. This weekend was no exception. I received two, however - both with ultimately the same message, "Thanks for hearing me."

If you've ever been unfortunate enough to be trapped in a conversation with me when I became incredibly passionate about one of my favorite topics then you know - I'm a huge fan of the two way communication that is social networking. I've been lucky enough…

Email Sourcing? You bet!


Q: But Art, isn't email sourcing in the domain of lazy recruiterdom?

A: If you can reach more ppl with a tool you're NOT using - THAT'S lazy!

For some reason, a couple of times a month someone will give me a referral to someone I'm looking for by senging me an email with a name and an email address - no other information.

I actually know the reason.

The people providing the information for me are very… Continue

Career Steps in A Down Economy, And Learning From Geese

Recently, I was called by my church to assist others in taking steps to better themselves in thier career situations. In this down economy, many folks are struggling to make ends meet as they strive to find a new opportunity. In this economy it is important as a recruiter to help others define their career trajectory.

I think I have always taken for granted networking. I think as a recruiter this comes naturally, and it is part of our… Continue

She Sells Seashells by the Seashore - "Virtually"

Yes, she sells seashells by the seashore virtually….

Please don’t expect an e-Card or evite from me in the near future. I am kind of “old school” in this sense. I enjoy a hand written card, note or mailed invitation. In fact, most of the events and parties that I attend sent me an invite in the mail. For the most part those evites that clutter my inbox generally go unread.

Being “virtual” these days does have its… Continue

Since when did it become unacceptable to have pride in one's country!?!?!?

Alright, it's 2am and I'm watching the men's volleyball game between Venezuela and the USA, and I just read this question on LinkedIn: What do you think about NBC's decision to delay broadcasting the opening ceremonies to the Olympic Games by 12 Hours?

Some guy responded with this:

"As with most media in the… Continue

Paying Referral Fees

Okay, so I recently changed my long-time standpoint on this.

If I'm recruiting for a real Purple Squirrel or asking a LOT from potential candidates (for example, I'm currently performing a confidential search for a client in which I cannot divulge the company, the location or the specific job title - and neither do they in the phone screen) I think ultimately it's worth it to make a spliff available if someone helps close a deal by directing me to my superstar.

However,… Continue

Dennis Rodman, a sales instructor?

“Dennis Rodman was in the National Basketball Association for several years, playing hard and posting impressive rebounding numbers. But he received little publicity and few, if any, endorsement contracts. Then he created a USP (unique selling proposition) for himself – bizarrely bright, multi-colored hair and outrageous tattoos. With that came notoriety and a fortune in publicity and product endorsements.” Jay Abraham --Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got

2 Minutes on Social Media and Recruiting

I had the pleasure of sharing a table with Bill Vick yesterday morning over a cup of coffee. It's funny....Bill flatters all of us by inviting us to be interviewed for a spot on on,when, actually, he knows more about recruiting than most of us will forget in our life-time.

It's a rare find - a big-billing recruiter who is as kind and considerate as he is humble (our industry… Continue

TGIS (Thank Goodness, Its Sumser!)

Digging Into

Returning from a whirlwind of events, this week John returns to do some thoughtful number crunching:

It's 080808. Today, 6,000 Chinese couples are getting married to take advantage of the auspicious date. The Olympics start today. The date was picked for its inherent good fortune. That's the thing about numbers. They help further understanding. Repeatedly measuring the same thing…

Employment Branding -

There is little doubt that employment branding is one of the hottest topics in recruiting these days. Unfortunately, what a lot of firms implement in the name of branding really has nothing to do with employment branding.

Defining Employment Branding

Employment branding is unique in that it is the only long-term recruiting strategy. The viral-based perception management program designed to attract top-quality applicants is based on the premise that the organization is well-managed in… Continue
