While looking for some stats for a company we help in the games industry I was surprised to see the market share iPhone / iTouch has taken from the portable games console market. The PSP lost 9% share
and Nintendo DS lost 5% share putting iPhone at 19% market share, based
on portable game revenue. Considering most games are…

Today, reaching people on the web is all about content. Not only does your content need to be well presented but it has to be relevant to the group you are targeting (and you have to show this relevance in a hurry). The biggest benefit of this content generation though is that it’s shifted the focus of how you acquire customers from having to go out and find customers to having customers find you. This is what is called…Continue

I watched the critically acclaimed movie "Up In The Air" last night - and I'll be honest: I wasn't all that impressed.
I can't get the movie out of my mind (which is a good indicator of a
good movie) - and I've spent a lot of time thinking about what it has
said about our work force. Without giving anything away: George
Clooney's Company fires people. To sugar coat this…
While examining the pros/cons of using social media tools for recruiting, I've often seen arguments highlighting the cost of these tools as a determining factor in adoption. Currently, many of the most popular social media tools like Facebook and Twitter do not charge for using their services. In comparison to recruiting via job boards or third-party recruiter, the lack of direct financial expenditure for Social Recruiting seems compelling. Just because the services are free right now,…Continue

We hear it all the time – Recruiters are sales people. Whether you work in an agency or in-house, your job is to track down leads, fulfill metrics and often times convince people to do things they may feel reluctant to do. But what kind of sales person do you want to be, and more importantly, not…Continue
I have like all of us in the recruitment industry seen the huge growth of Linkedin and have written about it and what it is on many occasions - Is Linkedin a Job Board? seemed to be one that got the “chattering classes” chattering.
But in talking with a recruiter pal of mine who is a heavy user of LinkedIn has revealed that ” when we use Linkedin we find that at least 20% of LinkedIn profiles are essentially defunct…Continue
Traditionally, the CEO has played the role of company evangelist. In fact, having a single company representative was perfect for a broadcast, one-way method of information dissemination. However, with the rise of social media and the corresponding call for authenticity, having the CEO assume the role of evangelist is no longer necessary or even desirable. Just as most consumers are mistrustful of direct advertising, there is also an increasing likelihood that statements from your CEO may be…Continue

How can you stop sourcing in the HR world? Or researching? Or name generating? Or pipeline building? How can you say you never need to look for people or that you have enough? OK, I’m done let’s close shop? Not happening in my world!
I love the JIT Sourcing concept from Glen Cathey (you’re my latest hot thing BTW Glen <smiles> ) and am all over the lean concepts which help you maintain that fine balance between efficiency and…Continue

A question for corporate recruiters and hiring managers...if a contingent hire goes wrong, which of these is likely to be at fault:…Continue
Recently reading a post suggesting that great innovation may be coming soon in recruiting from third party agencies or RPOs brought some great perspective for me. Where does real innovation come from? It comes from motivated individuals and that motivation most of the time is related to profit. So when I look at the recruiting world it makes all the sense in the world that the innovation will come from third party recruiters. Don’t get me wrong, there…
We've all worked with tough to please Hiring Managers. They're the ones that can find flaws in any and all candidates you bring to the table. Candidates that are rock-stars in phone-interviews or meeting with a recruiter face-to-face crumble in the presence of these managers.
When dealing with these managers,…Continue
