As some members of RecruitingBlogs.com are aware, for the past 16 years ExecuNet has run a survey focused on the executive marketplace. It is called The Executive Job Market Intelligence Report.
It is a task that each time we do it we keep asking ourselves if we have the energy to do it again. It not only takes a great deal of time to put it together, but also an enormous amount of time in analyzing the data, and this year was certainly no exception as we had over 6,000 responses -… Continue

Sometimes recruiting feels like you are high atop the Eiffel Tower with nothing but the wind blowing up your skirt and a woozy feeling when you look down...

I've talked to several of my contemporaries over the past couple of weeks and the consensus was Q1 was not great for the IT Staffing business. Many of us haven't recovered from the usual drop in headcount at the end of the year and are wondering when things will start to recover. We've seen a couple of clients start to pick up and I am hopeful that Q2 isn't the disaster (maybe too strong a word - struggle?) Q1 was. I will stick with disaster personally because yesterday we were forced to cut 2… Continue

I’ve always been a big proponent of self-assessment and of constantly evaluating and reevaluating things to ensure that I’m being and doing my very best in everything I set my mind to.
There is no distinction between my professional and personal life as I truly believe this philosophy should apply to both.

Ere.net had a great article last week... Let's Revolutionize the Standard Recruiting Model. The author, Mark Bielecki, posed some interesting solutions to recruiting in a down turned economy.

This solution would allow the recruiter to be compensated for their knowledge and efforts… Continue

Here’s a good quote I recently stumbled upon from Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc.:
“Recession proof your job by making sure that others, above and below, know about your recent achievements.”
Good advice from the best-of-the-best.
