Is your boss ruining your career? It’s time to dump the chump!

Recently some good friends and I were enjoying a great bottle of wine over dinner when an interesting discussion arose. “Is your boss ruining your career?” We all unanimously agreed that we had either been in the situation before or were currently in one.

Each of us sitting at the table that night is…

follow-up flubs, fiascoes and failures that frustrate candidates

Plenty of explanations or excuses exist for why many in the recruiting industry decide to put minimal effort into creating a quality candidate experience. One of the most common gripes job seekers have is lack of follow up after they’ve applied for a position. Even worse, many applicants never hear any feedback whatsoever after interviewing. Or, the communication they receive along the way is vague, mystifying, and in some cases downright unprofessional.


The following are…

What To Do When A Recruiter "Goes Dark" - Part 1

I’ve been staring at this blank page for weeks. In the past couple of months I’ve heard from two very different contacts that they’ve gotten pretty far in the recruiting process, only to have the recruiter disappear. They don’t call, they don’t write. They certainly don’t pick up the phone when it rings. Why is that?

I received an email from a job seeker I've crossed paths with both as a candidate and professional networking contact. He is smart, educated, and has a great deal of…

A Death in the Work Family

Whenever you walk in on someone crying, you can’t help but think “who died"? Yesterday, tragically, my question was the right one. I learned that a very close co-worker had passed unexpectedly the night before.

This news comes on the heels of a previous loss last week – one of our sales people died. HR had already done what they do in these instances – made sure everyone had the EAP number, worked with leadership to pass along information while retaining privacy for the family, looked…

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?

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…
