Are your job candidates taking other offers before you get through your hiring process?

Hiring Manager Alert: If you have a problem with candidates taking other positions during your interview and hiring process, it’s likely that you’ve gotten your candidates from job boards, newspaper ads, and so on…which means that it’s also likely that you’ve contacted them late in the job search cycle.

To avoid this problem, the solution is simple: work with a recruiter. A recruiter prescreens candidates for you, eliminating the waste of your time and productivity on a candidate who… Continue

Microsoft's new "I'm a dork" store

This is a new Low for Microsoft. What happened to their great Product Marketing teams? Oh yeah...Googles' got them.

Posted by Matt Asay

Why must Microsoft strenuously seek to earn the "dork" label that Apple has been pinning on it? In case you missed it, Microsoft is now offering "I'm a PC" gear - like ties and skateboards and probably pearl-encrusted thongs - online for purchase.

This is stupid.… Continue

Meltdown 101: What's deflation, and why is it bad?

Deflation might sound like a good thing. Yet it can be even rougher on the economy than the more familiar phenomenon of inflation, because it's harder to get rid of.

In the past year, record-breaking prices for oil, grains and metals caused serious worries about runaway inflation. And as the economic slump took hold, economists even considered the possibility of… Continue

Did Yahoo!'s Chief Get Played by Google?

The more and more I read about Google's Corporate behavior the more they contradict their beginnings. Google has become the next 'Evil empire'. But hey... I'm sure Google will reach a certain ceiling of popularity and get outperformed by a new company within the next ten years.

It's not surprising that Yang is stepping down as chief executive of Yahoo! His failure in June to… Continue

2007 Housing Market... 2009 Job Board Market...hmmmmmm

In 2003, a friend of mine had opened his own real estate office. He had worked for a national realtor for only two years, and was upset about the commission structure. Within 1 year, he had 26 agents working for him- more than any other office in the greater Portland area. The housing market was booming, as was the commercial market. In 2005, he invited me to get on board- get my license and start making real money. This time for the real estate market is very comparable to the job board market… Continue

Ten Things Every Recruiting Professional Should Know About Millennials

We see a lot of information on both sides of the employment aisle and thought it might be fun to compile some of it on various market and employee segments into top ten lists.

I Know Something You Don't Know

Dear Claudia,

I’m a sales recruiter who takes on splits to supplement my work load. Recently I started working on a project to build out a full team of account executives for another recruiter’s client; we’re making good headway and two of my candidates are interviewing this week. So what’s the problem? Last week I get this introduction to a senior sales manager in a “quiet search mode.” You guessed it – it’s the hiring manager for the account manager search. The manager doesn’t…

Surviving the Resume Flood

The landscape for employment opportunities took a huge turn this year. Our office, like so many other executive recruiting firms, is being flooded with emails, resumes, and recurrent phone calls on a daily basis. You can imagine the deluge that is happening in the Human Resources offices of the attractive (and let’s be honest, even the not-so-attractive) corporations.

For some this is undoubtedly a painful time of transition. Sadly, many will need to revisit their expectations,… Continue
