As a recruiter I get very close to my candidates during their job selection and application process to the point of perhaps considering them as 'friends'. I will sometimes call my candidates three times in a day - firstly to wish them luck, secondly to gain feedback and thirdly to pass on feedback. I complete reference checks and am very excited when my 'friend' accept a position and give the start date for a month later.
Occasionally I will assist with resignation tactics and of…Continue

By the level of noise and chatter focused on the mobile recruiting trend over the past several years one would think that corporate talent acquisition teams have made great strides in adopting and deploying these solutions. But the results of our recently released 2014 Jibe Talent Acquisition Survey tells another story.
In our survey, our independent research partner Kelton Global asked more than 300 in-house recruiting…Continue

I couldn't get a guest today. (Two recruiters volunteered but neither could get permission from their managers). So, we just went with a round table discussion featuring the Recruiting Animal Panel and I think it went pretty well. It reminded me of the first show.…Continue

Leading a team can be hard work; leading a virtual team can be even harder. We all get it, telecommuting is great for the environment, it can lower stress levels in workers, increase productivity and drastically reduce costs for the organization.

Ever think "There just aren't any more candidates out there!"? Sooner or later, we all have been in that situation.
But how exactly do you determine it's the end of the line and there is no more talent in the pool? Is it when your job postings don't pull? Is it when résumé databases…
For as long as I remember (and in recruitment, that is a very, very long time) getting good candidates has always been about getting their attention.
Way back in the day, all newspapers were bulging with job-classified sections. Seriously, I remember the Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age job sections were way thicker than the rest of the paper combined! It was the same across the world. And…Continue

It’s a simple process really: be kind, be mindful, and follow through. But, as with all things straightforward, most of us have a tendency to overcomplicate the process as the business grows and we somehow “forget” to keep the process real and simple.…Continue

Every recruiter knows it's bound to happen. At some point, one of your clients will hire one of your candidates without paying you. It's an age old problem in the staffing industry and many recruiters just consider it a cost of doing business.
But you may not realize just how big this problem really is. In case the title didn't give it away, these unidentified hires account for $1 billion dollars in missed placement fees…Continue
