Employees are the cogs that keep company gears moving forward. It’s understandable that any business would want to keep those cogs well-oiled and optimized. Problems that an employee may encounter are also the company’s problems. That being said, employees are still people, and they have free will. Trying to control and manipulate them will end badly.
That point also holds true when it comes to social profiles such as LinkedIn. Companies are already attempting to dictate the content…Continue
The big news in the last week seems to be that Facebook can tell you if your relationship is going to work. No, they're not clairvoyant, it's based on research from Jon Kleinberg of Cornell University surrounding something called "dispersion." Jon…Continue
With the rise of social media, the increased importance on employer branding and increasingly sophisticated sourcing tools and techniques, successful recruiting today requires increased complexity. As employers embrace these best practices, they've also increasingly embraced recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) as…Continue

Recruiting could be thought of as a fraternity. When you start out as a recruiter, you are a pledge. You have to earn your stripes. If you are smart, you will start with an agency. Recruiting is sales. It is highly competitive and there is no other place to learn the business than in an…Continue
After attending a number of Recruiting and HR conferences this fall, I have noticed a few common themes. In particular, in both Europe and the U.S. the major focus has been on 1) “Big Data”; and 2) recruiters as marketing and sales people.These ideas are widely accepted –…Continue
You know what you need to do when you are job hunting. You search for job opportunities on the Internet, browse the company sites, fill up the general information in an application format and add your curriculum vitae.
Once you are done with this, what do you do? You probably wait. There are chances that your resume may go into the black hole, maybe it gets lost in a pile of hundreds of resumes or it may find its way to the desk of the hiring manager.…Continue
Business owners accuse Millennials of being lazy, too focused on money, and worried about “me, me, me,” while Millennials challenge the idea of a 9-to-5 job, stability, and hierarchy in the workplace. This back-and-forth debate seems to never end.
What’s even more interesting is that the accusers — Baby Boomers — were the first ones to be called the “Me Generation,” with managers lamenting the fact that they never cut their hair and were seemingly lazy. They were the first “rebels” in…Continue
We all have to start somewhere. Making that first hire is vital because it sets the tone for all future hires. This is the point where small companies will start building their company culture, so it’s important to start off right. There comes a time when small business owners have to make the decision to grow and…Continue
As a recruiter, you probably spend a good deal of your workday, sending, receiving and decoding emails. The more you read, the more that come in. The more you send out, the more that need replies. This is called email hell, and it’s a vicious cycle. We know that we need to have constant…Continue
It's that time to take a look at what's been happening in the job board industry over the past month. All I can say is - more than you might imagine. So let's get started:
I love LinkedIn. But I do not trust LinkedIn.
For recruiters, it’s obviously a key tool, and clearly a brilliant invention that is part of a seismic shift in the way recruitment works. I wish I had invented it.
But I believe, that for agency recruiters, LinkedIn is not your friend.
Don’t get me wrong, we need to use LinkedIn, and become better at scouring its database for the nuggets that reside therein. We also need to…Continue
With the HR technology marketplace seemingly evolving at the speed of a tweet, companies selling into the space are increasingly employing sophisticated techniques to increase both share of mind and, subsequently, share of market. Trends like big data, social media and mobile enablement have become…Continue

My previous post about the right number of interviews received a lot comments - some from people saying I should add an extra interview to…Continue
TGIF, right? Yeah, that used to be more exciting before they pulled Family Matters, Step by Step and Boy Meets World from the best programming block this side of Thursday nights on NBC circa 1996, but now, Fridays just mean having to see #FollowFriday (or #FF, if you f-ing like) proliferate throughout my social…Continue
There’s no doubt that when it comes to recruiting and hiring, social media long ago moved from the margins to the mainstream. The exponential increase in employer adoption has become a big business in its own right, with a rapidly growing ecosystem of new tools and emerging technologies dedicated to helping…Continue
Created this "framework" recently for a workshop that we were conducting a week ago. We needed something quick to understand at which level an organization was - in terms of their use and understanding of using social networking platforms and their overall use of Digital mediums to attract and manage talents.
I'm just sharing this here, in case someone else here might find it useful. This is by no means a…

Remember 1999? For those of us in online recruiting, it was the year ran an ad during the Superbowl. Overnight the job board went from sort-of well-known to very well known. Part of it was a memorable…Continue
