Does Recruitment Need to Wake Up?....

Is the recruitment industry as smart as it portrays itself?

Recently, I've been doing some competitor analysis - I'm a UK-based headhunter by the way, so my research was biased in that direction - and I've been surprised by the results. There are probably two main threads that betray some pretty poor thinking and activity…

Facebook Graph Search for Recruiters

Human beings have two lives – public and private. But in this digital age where we choose to put out private lives in a public space, where do we draw the line?

If you’ve recently discovered that people you’re not even Facebook friends with have seen some of your embarrassing photos from your past, the answer is no, you can’t do anything because Facebook hasn’t actually violated your privacy.

Today the Facebook user is losing more and more control over their personal…

The Pinnacle of Your Career


Superbowl Sunday was yesterday and it got me thinking about things.  I thought about Colin Kaepernik.  I thought about Steve Biscotti.  I thought about John Elway. I thought about all of the sports figures that I have watched throughout my life.  I also thought about the ones I have read about that were before my time.  I thought about what it must feel like to reach the pinnacle of your career.  Some reach it early; some reach it multiple times, some reach it…

Saving my best candidates for my best clients

Here’s an admission from a recruiter, I save my best candidates for my best clients. Not all clients are created equal and neither are all candidates.

They know that they are hardworking and successful but have been working under terrible conditions or a terrible boss for so long that they think that this is…

Fire these clients. Now!

I talk to a lot of recruiters.

And it is tough for many of them right now. That we know.

Everybody is scrambling for a dollar, chasing every client. A bit like that sad, desperate guy in the bar at 2 am, harassing every one of the last few women left standing.

But there is the irony. As recruiters push ever harder to win…

When Candidates Have Discrepancies on Their Resumes...what to do?

Okay, so you have recruited just the right candidate.   According to his resume his credentials are impeccable.  He has all the required skill sets and vital experience in dealing with all the disciplines the job will require.   His references provide you with glowing reviews.   You have conducted background checks as part of your employment screening process, and your candidate emerges squeaky clean.  Nothing that is noteworthy.
