It’s used for real-time data analytics, allowing you to see how many clicks your links have received, who clicked them and how engaged they were, plus it’s fully customisable to agencies, businesses and individuals.

3 ways to stop other companies taking your candidate

Sometimes, the client experience can feel a bit like buying a house. I put forward a great candidate, they do a perfect interview and are offered the job. Client and candidate are happy. At least until someone else comes along with a better offer and lo and behold – that client has been ‘gazumped’ by the lure of a higher salary.

This happened to one of my clients recently, with the candidate turning down a role (despite already having accepted it) for the sake of a few thousand pounds…

Raybould pointed out some of the ways in which LinkedIn can help you narrow down your candidate pool, identifying the supply of qualified candidates for a given position based on particular characteristics. And where there’s lots of competition for qualified…

How to Get Promoted

  I've been recruiting for a long time, over 18 years and it feels like I've checked a million references. One thing that comes up over and over again when talking to candidates, is their desire to get promoted. To move to the next level, take the next step to a manager or Director or VP, even CMO.

Some people seem to get promoted rapidly, no matter where they land. These are the people who spend on average 3-7 years at a company and during that time frame are promoted multiple times.…

Whiskey, Wine & Root Beer

On Friday morning my family once again made the drive to Carrizo Springs, Texas.  The weather was perfect.  Late November in most of America is at or above freezing, but not in Texas.  Highs were around 75-80 degrees, and that made it feel like early spring, not winter.  

At around 4:00 P.M.,…

Dreaded MIA Candidate

All of us Recruiters have been through it-the dreaded MIA candidate. We speak with them, feel we develop a great relationship with them, get an interview set up with them and the client and then *POOF* they disappear. I have never had such an issue until I changed markets. I guess the hustle and bustle of a larger city seems to make people think that Recruiters are evil or not human. I tend to pride myself with finding great candidates and developing relationships with them. But when I do…

Got time to type? You've got time to talk.

How many times have you phoned a client only to be told they’re busy? You then send a quick email, and they reply immediately? Not that busy ay? And how many times have you sent an email ‘without even trying’ to speak to your contact, or sent an email when really you could have spoke to your contact instead?

If you have the time to type, you have the time to talk. Pick up the phone. 

OK, I appreciate we are living in a world that is becoming forevermore…
