What if the Unemployed possessed Killer Recruiter Skills?

The holidays are right around the corner where it’s now a time to reflect on the year that is near its end and, 2011, the new year to come. A time to get together with close friends and family and perhaps ... A time to think of those not so fortunate - where volunteering to help those in need might be a reminder of how thankful and grateful we should be..., for what we do have.…

Is Staffing HR’s Rebellious Child?

In the corporate world, the staffing department is almost always part of the HR department. Over the years, some protagonists have argued that the staffing department should be separate to HR. That discussion is not the subject of this particular post. This post is about the relationship between the staffing department and HR, a relationship that is often tenuous at best and a relationship that often doesn't work as well as it should.

Staffing is responsible for…

Recruiting Firms ,being more and more dependent on technology can be at risk of running off the rails in a heartbeat causing a costly disruption in business if we do not have a business disruption plan. Consider what would happen if your internet provider was down for a week. How devastating would it be if a lightening strike or a power failure shut down your ability to access your computer for more than a few hours. Do you use an online backup for data and financial information, suppose…

It’s already December 7. The new year will be here before we know it. In addition to trying to close as many deals as they can before the end of the 2010, recruiters are also trying to prepare for 2011.

Will clients pay 60% permanent placement fees? Well, yes actually.

Regular readers of my blog will know that I have predicted for some time that clients will expect more from recruiters as the market recovers. I have said that we can expect pressure on our fees, particularly as employers invest in other ways to access talent.

But it’s also true that market forces will prevail. At Firebrand Talent Search we have seen a marked easing in pressure on our fees and in…

Is Bigger Better?

When I hear a founder touting on how much headcount they have or will be increasing to I sometimes wonder about their definition of success. There are many different verticals and industries out there and some industries measure their success in much different ways. The common thread in every…

War on Work- which side are you on?

I watched this TED Talk recently, and though it's more than two years old now, the message from Mike Rowe, producer and host of Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs, resonates strongly enough to still be talking about it today. Rowe outlines what he calls America's War on Work, supporting this theory with numerous examples of how we, as a culture, have marginalized manual labor and those who do it, thereby creating a culture that turns down it's nose as those who are out there doing the ugly jobs… Continue

I know, I sound Grinchy. I think all that beautiful marketing and crowd effect makes people forget if they even really… Continue
