You may know of someone who despite the economic climate this year has still done remarkably well in their recruitment career. This will be down to a number of things - their tenacity, drive and determination, their recruitment experience supplying perm and contract staff to businesses from SME's to corporates (5 yrs plus in the industry),business acumen, knowledge of the New Zealand market, corporate relationships, sales and marketing ability and the overall way they just take "ownerhip" and… Continue

I wasn't at the major Australian recruitment industry conference last month in Queensland (RCSA Conference), but from all accounts it was an excellent conference. I did follow the articles and blogs being posted from the conference and one in particular caught my eye.
It was Top consultants bill five times more: Study.
The article reported on the BSRP Asia research that concluded that the financial difference between the elite recruiter and the average was… Continue

Here’s what I told the guy in the interview, “Over a 4 and a half year period I reported to no less than 36 different managers. Most often my obligations were split between 4 managers at a time and each of them had completely different objectives for me to meet at regular intervals. At any given time they’d have me working on either support documentation or reviewing past work product while assimilating new information that would be relevant to my performance reviews about every 6 weeks or so.… Continue

This woman’s eyes were so scary, they made me shudder. Her toothy rectangle of a smile was frozen under a clearly cosmetically enhanced nose which formed the T-square support for a pair of repulsively bulbous orbs. I think she must have been a---

I had an interesting conversation today with one of my clients. Over the last seven years I have been witness to Marks' setbacks and successes, his layoffs and his promotions. I've met his wife, his kids, and he has met my sons. Our relationship is truly of "trusted advisor" nature.
This past Friday he was laid off from a software firm that had difficulty securing an additional line of credit. At best, the firm has another 6-8 weeks before they… Continue

S.a.a.S (Software as a Service) is the evolution of the next generation web tools, which is catching the attention of everyone in the HR industry.

The charm of low cost integration is fueling the fire of the SaaS revolution. Traditionally, on-premise applications have required additional… Continue

I remember in 1992 when the "world wide web" (the term internet had not been invented yet) was touted as a game changer for recruiting. And it was true.....for a time. There was Monster, then Careerbuilder but two was not enough, the job board industry realized that they could carve up the universe into bite sized pieces and convince recruiting departments that they had to be part of this movement in order to get closer to the talent they seek.
And millionaires were… Continue

Take a real look
One of the reasons I appreciate our process of recruiting more and more is that it allows us to take a real look at the person who’s applied for the position.
In February, while working in a hiring campaign in Minneapolis, I also participated in an experience that changed my perspective on life. That doesn’t happen very often to us but this weekend was different. I was part of a group of eight who went into the Lino Lakes Correctional Facility (read… Continue

Unemployment is a mounting issue that continue to steal the headlines of papers and blogs across the nation, and the world for that matter. Jobs being lost, outsourced or simply disappearing overnight are every day events. Plants shutting down, companies closing their doors, and the most financially stable name brands we grew up with calling it quits are on the tips of our tongue. So how do we address this? The free markets that we have come to understand are the driving forces of the western… Continue

I was told once that the way to determine whether the glass if half full or half empty is to know whether your filling the glass or emptying it. If it started out empty, it’s easy to see the glass as half full; if it started out full, you’re likely to feel that it has become half-empty. Following that logic, I suggest that the glass of our economy is now half full.
“What I can tell you is that we are seeing signs of improvement. Layoffs, although we are still having them, seem to be… Continue

You don't need a crystal ball to see that a cataclysmic shift is happening within the recruiting space. The recruiting services landscape already looks starkly different than it did before the economic meltdown and is continuing to morph dramatically.
The primary value that a recruiter used to offer was finding candidates for their clients and selling those candidates on their client's opportunities. Everything else was added value. Fast forward to today, now finding candidates and… Continue

Prior to the GFC we saw articles almost daily on the so-called talent shortage. Such clichéd headlines as “Winning the War for Talent” were commonplace. My own company, Mindset used them as did everyone else. These headlines and articles have subsided of late but the talent shortage is still there. It's like a wild beast hibernating; waiting for the thaw - which will be here sooner than most Australians think. In fact, many would argue that it’s waking now as the extra cold metaphorical winter… Continue

From the reason SnapTalent.com closed it's doors.
"The online recruitment space has its own unique market dynamics that restrict innovation on the company side. From the outset, online recruitment spend is huge. Its a market with the right fundamentals from the outside looking in. Its a large market ($10B/year spend), with rich customers, and poor innovation. It sounds like an entrepreneur's dream. The truth is that there are barriers to adoption of newer technologies which come down… Continue
