Bait and Switch, Consultant increases rate when customer wants to hire

Just had a consultant interview who wants to change the rate now that the customer wants to hire them. This consultant has to go in at a lower rate than they are used to cause the customer cannot get the req approved otherwise. It is only for a short time and so this person only has to deal with these types of pay issues until the economy gets better.

Our job sure is difficult sometimes. Working with people always presents extra challenges that working at a computer may… Continue

Truly Partnering With Your IT Clients

Truly Partnering With Your IT Clients

Many IT Consulting/IT Recruiting firms seem to lack an understanding on what it means to partner with their clients’ in a long-term relationship. It seems that some firms are just concerned with billable hours and one-off placement fees than actually serving their clients true needs. A case in point was a situation I encountered at one such firm in which I was employed. I was an account manager of a financial client where we had placed a… Continue

Why Develop a Recruitment Strategy?

Recruiting is a Sales process. It is very dynamic. Recruiting today is driven by your competition, by technology (Facebook, Twitter, Internet Postings), and more importantly by the economy. Every 8 to 10 years our economy goes into an economic correction called a recession. You can plan for a recession if you watch the signs.

There is an interesting impact in this particular recession. Since 2003 different groups have been discussing the potential impact of the retirement of the Baby… Continue

Uma Thurman had it right

I am overwhelmed with to-do lists. We have become so dependent on them, that we even put things on them that we have already done JUST so we can cross them off! Admit it, you know you have done it or thought of it.

Well, I just realized that simple is much better here and I am sharing my newly found wisdom. Keeping focus on what is important is so hard to do when things are hard, when you have difficult calls to make. If Uma can do it, so can you.. If you want someone to help hold… Continue

Should Recruiters Use Twitter?

I have to say that Twitter is a good tool for job seekers and recruiters too. Recently I have received several candidates from my Twitter posts. I have also been posting some of our open job orders via onto Twitter and have set up some split partnerships with other agencies.

I like the ability to follow other people and many people have started to follow my tweets as well. It's like having a… Continue

Conquering the Interview!

The interview is one of the most important elements in your job search, and often a job can be won or lost in this stage. To increase your chances for success it is imperative that you prepare properly.

To begin you need to extensively research the company, and with the help of the internet this should be fairly easy. Start by reviewing the company's website and looking at all the individual pages including 'about us', 'the management team'… Continue

Why I Recruit - And You Should Career Search - Using Social Media

There is a lot of talk about if, when, which, and how to use social media tools - whether you are recruiting or searching for a job. I have been an avid user of many of these tools as a part of my toolkit -- and I have used them in my role as a Corporate Recruiter, Consultant, and even a Candidate.

As a Corporate Recruiter, I made a choice to make myself accessible to potential candidates via these tools. I know many shudder at that thought, however I have been surprised that more… Continue

Software Buyer Resources

I’ve covered several topics in my posts that were aimed towards helping decision makers select the right applicant tracking system. Each of these posts, with a bit of modification, could really be applied to any sort of solution. The purpose of software after all is to simplify processes, reduce costs/time, and align objectives with overall organizational goals. I have never seen a vendor that promised their solution would drain your money and cause you headaches, however, I see this all of the… Continue

The unofficial definitions of Unemployment and real people left uncounted

There is an official definition for unemployment that everyone can find at the Bureau of Labor Statics ( However, because unemployment, and employment calculations do not count all peoples, and have a limited view of the labor force for reporting numbers, they inadequately capture our potential problems.

We should consider the additional indicators when assessing our Labor Market problems, and the BLS does have some addition stats they consider, but the system as a whole… Continue

Current Economic Scenario - Effects on Recruiters & the US Economy

All the brouhaha over lay-offs and pink slips is finally coming to an end, whether temporarily or for next few years, only time will tell. I recently graduated with an MBA and the speculation whether the economy is picking up was driving me to an edge. The only solace was that there were more people like me around – people sitting at Starbucks with their laptops open and job alerts popping on their screen and speaking to headhunters for “relevant” opportunities.

However, what I… Continue

I received few days back a candidate Video Resume who is interested for international opportunities and his skill sets was a perfect match for one of my requirements. His video resume gave me an additional bonus to make him stand out from other candidates.

What’s in a name?

Naming a career site is something everyone thinks they can do – but few do well. Sorry, folks, it’s true. A good name is hard to find (and a good URL is even harder).

Well, you may ask, why? Let me suggest that these names come in 3 basic flavors, each presenting its own particular set of benefits and problems.
