Hello and good day!
I thought it woud be a great idea to share a list of remarkable recruiters/staffing thought leaders, I know personally, or "follow" intentionally, to gain inspiration, which has supported the Inbound Recruiter vision, (Get Found, Convert, Analyze.) Inbound Recruiter could not have been formed without each of these industry leaders "original thoughts" (innovation) and accomplishments in our field. (Order unimportant, They ALL…Continue
Yep. Just had to say that. It pains me greatly. But what else can we do?
I'm sure many of you are (hopefully) off-the-hook BUSY! I am absolutely thankful to be in the position I find myself in.
But can we - more importantly - should we take on every new search that comes our way if we're too busy? I've decided it's better to let a potential client know we're simply not in a position to entertain a new search with them. I've done this twice now. This…Continue
Information exchange is flowing at lightning speed and we are all expected to keep up.
I don’t know about you, but I am feeling the need to shut the hell up (after I finish this) reassess and declutter.
This time of the year calls for a good spring cleaning in my home and in my head. It feels natural to reflect, re-examine and adjust focus.
My fear is that I am so used to having so many distractions, will panic set in when I don’t allow…Continue

Demand is outpacing supply for the following ten titles in the cities listed. As a result, prospects in these areas are more likely to be open to using your services especially if you provide data, such as this information, on market demand and the impact this will have on their ability to hire quality talent.
Accountants and Auditors in Chicago-Joliet-Naperville (146% normal demand)
Computer Specialists in Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington (163% normal…
A while ago, I mentioned to you about how I have a daughter who studies philosophy and literature in college. We’ve discussed multiple different ways her world of arts and my world of business coincide and have even produced a blog from one of those very discussions. This time we have a series of blogs set up for you, this being the first. This day is a day we take some advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world, because what Shakespeare taught us…Continue
CBS News did a study and found that ninety percent of the nursing homes in the nation hired employees with criminal convictions. According to CBS News, when the government ran background checks on employees in some 260 nursing homes, 92 percent of them had criminal records. Pretty remarkable.
This is not some curious group of do-gooders reporting that much of the healthcare industry is populated by convicted…Continue

Why do job seekers go to job boards? Ahem – to find a job.
I might add that’s why they network, Tweet, post profiles on LinkedIn, and troll through company career sites. They just want a job. Right?
Well, no. Not exactly. They want a lot more than a ‘job’. They in fact have an entire laundry list of desires:
I believe in Human Resources and corporate recruiters. They fill a necessary function at most companies. They insure that there are no duplicate submissions of résumés, they coordinate meetings, they screen to insure that candidates meet the standards of the job and the company. However, with respect, they should allow outside recruiters to deal directly with hiring managers when it comes to job specifications and follow up on interviews. It would speed up the…Continue
I believe the jury is still out on the "is social media a good thing or a bad thing for corporate recruiting" question. Everywhere I turn, I see recruiting departments dipping toes, jumping in or even diving into social media.
But after reading an article on Mashable recently I think there may be an unintended consequence of this rather awkward entry.
Enter my new favorite word:…

I build sites in order to sell them.
Today I am putting up ALL 32 niche sites I have started in recent years as one giant niche job board network. Combined these sites have over 20,000 uniques per month generating more than 50,000 monthly page views (and growing). They generate approximately $1,000 per month between postings, backfill revenue and Adsense. All are hosted on Jobamatic. Two of the…Continue
Her name is Holly. In all my years of recruiting she has been one of the (very) few who is somehow able to come up with a great candidate for any position – anywhere – any time. She’s been a partner for quite a while – and on our team full time since the beginning of last year.
I wanted to just take a minute and give her the recognition she deserves. Here is a quick rundown of what she’s been able to accomplish in just the past month or so. Note: This is by no means her…Continue
Earlier today I was delivering a Boolean Training session for our new members in the sourcing team. My aim was to simplify the Boolean concept for sourcing. Often it is mistaken that “Boolean” is very scientific and relatively tough which is why people tend to ignore. Finally – I found the connection!!! Very simple and life-like (!)…
I took an example of life and how the sourcing of candidates is very similar to our life. In life, our choices are the keywords and we either…Continue
Have you ever submitted a resume for a job opening, certain it is the perfect match for your skills only to never receive an offer? Sometimes it’s a mystery as to what recruiters and hiring managers are searching for in a good candidate. Below are common questions recruiters receive and answers to your inquiries.
Q: What do recruiters look for in a resume?
Recruiters look at your experience. If you are a recent grad, recruiters look at your internship history.…Continue

I got laid off in December. It's a pretty common refrain these days. I'd been the Manager of Recruiting for a Federal Systems Integrator for three and half years and in the space of a brief meeting that tenure was brought to a close. The company had worked through some challenges during my time there, but we had begun to win new business and add exceptional talent. I was proud of the work I had done and was completely committed to the ongoing success of the firm. I did not see it coming. As…Continue
