Talent Sourcing should not be a mystery

Often recruiters would send you a good CV, or a thoughtful applicant would send you their CV, thus creating the challenge of figuring out where to place them. It is hard enough to identify and assess current good talent in any business, as well as to elegantly manage the expectations of high-performers and managers’ staffing needs.

Talent management is the balancing act of ensuring you have the right people at the right time in the right roles with the right… Continue

Got Clarity? Rid your life of confusion, frustration and despair--NOW!!!

The Law of Clarity

By: Brian Tracy

Clarity accounts for probably 80% of success and happiness. Lack of clarity is probably more responsible for frustration and underachievement than any other single factor. That's why we say that "Success is goals, and all else is commentary." People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine. This is true everywhere and under all circumstances.

The Three Keys… Continue

Thank you for the opportunity to interview you this morning for the Director position with my client.

Are You Completely Gracious?

I had a hiring official call me back on a marketing call to discuss a position that was going to be created in his group just six months after his company had had layoffs and he himself had to let one of his team members go. Unfortunately he told me he wasn’t going to be able to use my services to fill the position, and not for a typical reason like no funding for recruiters fees, but because he was bringing the team member he had let go back in as a contractor.

Sure you’re thinking… Continue

The Facebook Era, by Clara Shih

from $ apropos

So I have made my way through most of this book (skipped a couple of sections specific to customer engagement & marketing), and have a quick review to offer.

The Facebook Era is first and foremost a general discussion on: a) how social networking technology is the next big revolution in IT, b) the nature of social capital and digital media, c) how social networking sites will change the way… Continue

Referencing The Reference

Sometimes the most obvious things are right under our noses, aren’t they?

Take leads. In this business, Account Executives and Recruiters alike live and die by the leads they develop. The old ABC’s of generating referral contacts (A = Ask for Referrals, B = Beg for Referrals, C= Call for Referrals) rings true now more than ever as firms work harder to develop new business in this challenging economic landscape.

So why not start with Referencing The Reference?

Simply put, when… Continue

Remember me?: Maintaining a profile in your target audience

A rule of marketing (which I learned through hard experience was in fact true) is that a prospective customer must be exposed to your message 3 to 5 times before the message is ‘received’. Why? Because they’re bombarded by thousands of other messages, and it takes that many exposures to make an impression. (This rule, by the way, should probably be updated to 6 to 9 times, given the fragmentation of traditional media).

So how does your job site keep its visibility high?…

Recruiters Don't Want to Kill Your Grandmother (and other recruiting myths debunked)

Commentaries, articles, posts and emails have been flying left and right in an attempt to clarify and disassemble the falsities being spread about Obama's healthcare reform. Rumors of death panels, promoting euthanasia, cutting Medicaid and bringing about a complete government takeover of healthcare have been flooding the media channels. I’ve watched in wonderment as town hall meetings, editorials and letters escalated to the point of comparing… Continue

Social Media Job Search

Everywhere I turn I cannot get away from the ever evolving trend of the social networking process for job searches. Countless comments and posts speaking to the rage and what it does for recruiters and job seekers. The issue I keep finding myself looking at is the lack of a detailed strategy. How do you leverage these networks? What is the best way to connect and get tied into a company you want to work for? What if you do not have a job - how do you use these tools to land your next position?… Continue

The Client Side – On The Verge Of A Thriving Environment For Recruiters?

Are we on the verge of the best recruiting market any of us has seen before? Or at least a thriving environment for recruiters? Maybe. Conditions have been incredibly tough for our business, but I think it is entirely possible that we will roll into a great period for our business. Here’s why.

My hope through the last year or so has been that it won’t take much of an improvement in general business conditions for those of us left in the recruiting business to do really… Continue

Recruitment Strategy Development - The Best Qualified Candidate Rarely Gets Hired

That may get your attention. Generally when RecruiterGuy presents to groups on the topic of interviewing, people ask about the interviewing process.

How many times have you sat in an interview and wondered, “How will this person (the Hiring Manager) be able to determine if I am the best qualified candidate? Instead of probing my experience, capabilities, and motivations, he/she just asked me what kind of tree I would choose to be.” Obviously the person advocating that type of… Continue

You Didn't Tell Me That

Dearest candidate,

It has been a pleasure to interview you this past week, and I appreciate how much time you were able to spend with me. Your answers to my probing questions, as well as your stated logic for your career moves and claims of successful track record encouraged me to share your resume with my team.

In taking an extra step of due diligence, we learned that there appears to be a well-documented contradiction of reasons for you moving from one position to the… Continue
