Everyone and their brother thinks they can build the next great recruiting tool. What they all seem to miss is that if you don’t have experience working the recruiting process, you lack the knowledge of what we, as Recruiters, need. Once in a great while, though, I find a tool that just works. Those “ah…

The moving target that is the job Description!!
We have all seen it and dealt with it. A job Description (JD) not written with us being involved, that says almost nothing, and when you speak to the hiring manager (HM) and ask question they… Continue

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… Continue

Working the same place, all day, every day causes people to spend too much time in their own heads. Repetitive actions combine with static environment causes ideas to go stale, perspective demolishes and overall productivity goes down. It’s important to the… Continue

A good measure of recruiter performance is placements per month, with sendouts (interviews arranged with hiring managers) per month and sendouts per hire being the two key performance drivers for this. Continue
For third-party recruiters, add fee per placement to obtain total billings per month as another critical performance measure.
Whether you’re a third-party or corporate recruiter, making more placements per month would be a good thing. With this goal in mind, here are 10…

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.
Or maybe there is some kid stuff type offenses on… Continue

Thought I would share an article written by my boss, Ed Guy, who is a veteran recruiter and owner of NationStaff Inc....

I've noticed online networkers have become much more aware of people who look at their LinkedIn profile during the last few months, but frankly not many do anything and let potential opportunities slip by - perhaps for the fear that they don't want to appear too pushy. I suspect there's something very British about that, but I admit that's a guess (wouldn't it be fascinating to see the LinkedIn behaviour stats country by… Continue

After two months of running around metropolitan DC in my beloved gas-guzzling Chevy Suburban, I decided it was time for a change. With my miles-per-gallon topping 17 on a good day – a drive to Gainesville and back, I wanted one thing – relief at the pump. I was determined to settle for nothing less than 28 miles to the gallon, which was double what I was getting on basic stop-and-go days. Sounds pretty easy, right? Technically, it was, but that’s where this post begins.
I performed a… Continue

As promised, this week I will begin discussing the top 3 social sites individually. These posts are written with a new user in mind. I am going to start with Twitter, but please know that there is no rhyme or reason as to the order that I will be discussing these sites on the blog. I think there are huge opportunities with all 3 of these sites and you should be using ALL of… Continue

I started blogging on RBC back in May of 2011. I was just about to go back into recruiting, this time as a corporate recruiter. I’d played around the edges of social media for a while, but this was my first attempt at garnering an audience. I was terrified.
The wonderful people at RBC were very welcoming, and even the mean comments were worth something. I made some great online friends and worked with AMAZING people like… Continue

If you are like many recruiters, one of your New Year's resolutions may be to increase your recruiting cold calls. At the very least, you probably want to increase your placements in 2013, and cold calling can definitely help you do that.
The problem is, few recruiters like making cold calls. But even with the Internet and traffic-driving social media tricks, nothing can quite replace getting on the phone and talking directly with prospective clients.… Continue
