Reports of the death of the recruiter are greatly exaggerated

I have been a recruiter for almost 20 years, the bulk of which has been on the external agency side. I have worked for agencies of all shapes and sizes. The big firm churn and burn, let's bring in 20 new recruiters and hopefully 2 will make it at least 6 months, style.

I'm sure most of…

Are You Enabling Bad Behavior From Hiring Managers?

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures. That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree.

I don’t mean giving them training sessions on the illegal questions to ask during interviews. I don’t mean giving them training sessions of any kind.

I mean getting hiring managers to give timely feedback on candidates submitted for their review.

I…

Why decision makers don’t make decisions.

The logic is simple enough. When you’re in a decision making position you’re expected to make decisions. Trouble is, every day managers all over Australia – and the world – struggle to actually do it, putting things off for all manner of reasons and generally erring on the…

Why MOST Cover Letters SUCK! (Spoiler... It ain't the candidates who write them!)

Most have heard, Recruiters and Hiring Managers will read resumes in 6 to 10 seconds.

I read an article recently espousing the deep dive candidates MUST do while making it "personal" for their cover letters... must have been an English major who wrote the article.

Recruiters may not…

The Top Five Strongest Interview Questions to Ask and The Importance of Understanding Aspirations

Depending on the hiring manager, recruiter or human resources department - interviewers may not necessarily have as much time to interview as they wish. I've seen interviews that last from thirty minutes to a chain of interviews lasting eight hours. Regardless, interviewers need to make sure to take advantage of the time spent interviewing and more often than not, they ask questions that don't necessarily give a real understanding of the candidate.…

The dreaded decline of the offer usually comes before accepting the offer, oh no, not on this one. Relocation assistance approved and sign on bonus all in place, even 3 weeks paid in a hotel to help transition.  As a recruiter you have already visualized the check coming in the mail and your off on to your next biggest and most important search.  

Although, instead of being happy and feeling good about all the hard work you did that goes into recruiting the hard-to-fill unicorn all…
