How do you handle an interview when the candidate is preoccupied with a personal issue? I had a candidate this week who insisted she didn’t want to reschedule, even though she was obviously speaking from the bathroom and flushed the toilet many times during the call. It was obvious she was suffering, and it was really awkward for me to continue. Should I have just cut it off for her relief?

When was the last time you reviewed the effectiveness of your relocation program? I ask this because the value of providing a competitive relocation benefits package becomes more and more evident every day. Although, many employer programs still place a significant amount of the relocation responsibility on the new employee and their families. At the same time, they expect the employee to be on the job and productive from the first day, even though they are dealing with two of the most… Continue

We’ve all heard the horror stories of people getting their identity stolen and having piles of bills to pay, but after reading a privacy quiz on darkreading.com discussing how your personal information can be bought and sold by just about anyone who has it I felt a little uncomfortable. Sure most of the answers I would have gotten correct, and of course I don’t provide such information unless I absolutely have to, but as someone who likes their privacy that was certainly a depressing… Continue

The recruiting world we work in continues to evolve and transform to include more and more technology and less and less face-to-face or voice-to-voice time unless
we take the bull by the horns and demand that valuable commodity that changes everything: personal interaction.
I had the unique opportunity to meet and "network" with several fellow recruiters last week at the Kennedy Info Conference in Vegas. It is amazing what happens when you get a bunch of people together that… Continue

I'm really starting to enjoy my venture into using the collberative nature of Web 2.0 to increase my network as well as knowledge. Today in one of the ERE discussion threads I follow there was a link to one of Shally Steckerl's podcasts - this one related to using the new "Company Profile" feature of LinkedIn that allows you to get all sorts of good information about a company from LinkedIn. You can see who they've recently hired, who's been promoted, what companies people come from and go to… Continue

(This post is not related to the issue of recruiting but sometimes you just have to respond. I have been asked by a few people for some context that would help them understand the situation on the ground in Sichuan, on the basis that I am at least nearer. But I doubt my ability to even begin to describe what is happening.
Others have asked how they can help. This I can do (see list below). )

Over the past several weeks, there have been two exciting changes for me.
First and foremost, my company re-branded as nGenera. BSG Alliance was a great name with a lot of history, but we realized that our name didn’t reflect who we were as a company. nGenera is a much better reflection of who we are and what we do.
