I thought it would be interesting to start a group for recruiters who have created and founded a new way of doing buisness. For anyone who has the desire and "Fire and their Belly" to make recruiting/hiring better. Whether you created an ATS, Job Board, Blog, Staffing Solution, new domain or just want to share ideas. Let me know your thoughts and feel free to connect with me on the linkedin group or email.

TGIS (Thank Goodness, Its Sumser!)
'Digging Into RecruitingBlogs.com'
Relatively few people come to this space with 15 months behind them in an online community. Only a handful have more than 15 years in actually building them. One of those is our very own Papa Sumser.
When you read his take on RecruitingBlogs.com

I just took a look and there are 116 entries in the Recruiting Jobs
section here on RecruitingBlogs.com.
I am wondering if anyone has had success hiring anyone yet as a result of the posts there. I have talked to one recruiter personally who has let me know that her firm has placed 2 maybe three recruiters they have met here on RecruitingBlogs.com
I see it as value… Continue

Look what I found on my Facebook home page this morning:
Somebody out there appears to be soliciting information from our employees about our firm, and offering a $500 prize for the effort. I would imagine of course that they are targeting a number of other organizations as well. The Company conducting the research is GD Job Research
. Anyone ever hear of this survey firm? I can't say that I'm… Continue

All business subcultures have their own way of talking, and recruiters are no different. Here's some slang from the frontlines of the talent wars.
Lift-out n. When an entire team of employees is recruited from a competitor at once: "Good news: We engineered a complete lift-out of ACME Corp.'s programmers."
On-boarding v.… Continue

I just have to say this once. If you care about leaving a beautiful planet for our children, please do what you can to recycle, buy clean/green or recycled products. Work for a clean/green company or more appropriately for this forum - recruit people to work for a clean/green product company. Do what you can to protect and preserve the environment. Here is a list of what you can recycle… Continue

Ever wonder what recruiting and placement are like here in Hawaii? Be glad to share with you some of the highs and other wise experiences. Most of it good...sure is different from the Los Angeles Wilshire District office I used to work in...but I would not trade for anything. Here we are candidate rich and job order O.K....not like in Southern California but plenty to handle. Be good to chat with anyone out there on the Mainland or elsewhere....

1.Analise the group before joining to determine its synergy with your business goals. The most successful professionals always invest time to research which groups will offer the best opportunity to connect with qualified prospects before investing time, effort and money in a networking group.
2. Set a maximum of three groups at any one time. Credibility grows more quickly within a group than across groups. You achieve more and better results by investing in fewer networking… Continue

In an interesting article from Scott Anthony today, "When Are "Best Practices" Not Best Practices?
", he touches upon an issue we so often see in the Talent Aquisition universe:
Blindly Worshipping At The Altar of Best Practices
Sound familiar? As Scott puts it, "The theory is that the manager should find a successful… Continue

In his recent article Let’s Revolutionize the Standard Recruiting Model
Mark Bielecki aptly sums up the frustrations that many of us Contingency Recruiters experience on a regular basis in his very first sentence:
“THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS.”
While it’s true that we have the power to select the types of companies we do business with that’s no guarantee that they… Continue

It started out two years ago with a viral email that was sent around China showing pictures of the Google offices in Beijing.
They looked pretty much like this first set below
. No one is sure who sent the original email but it did a better job of building a Recruitment Brand than all the initiatives that internal HR is likely to have taken in Google China over the past few years.
A conspiracy theory approach would… Continue
