Hi! I'm a Recruiter and I Work for Free!

Can you imagine a world where professional athletes only get paid if they win? In 1960, the Dallas Cowboys didn't win a game. In 1976, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't win one. And as recently as 2009, the Detroit Lions didn't win a single game. In the NBA, the Charlotte Bobcats won just 7 games in…

Work is no longer a place or an activity , it is an attitude of the mind

In the past couple of months my professional world has been turned upside down by two different organizations calling for changes. The first was the Society for Human Resource Management making the decision that after 130,000 certifications they needed to bring the process in house. The second was the National…

Is Recruiting Responsible for Retention?

The battle always results to finding talent. Therefore, good recruiting should lead to qualified candidates. And while good candidates are hard to catch, they can be even harder to keep. Recruiters shouldn’t lie to acquire coveted talent, or they run the risk of seeing them leave in 3-6 months when the truth to the exaggerations is finally discovered. It stands to reason then, that…

3 reasons leaders should not outsource their new hire training

To back up all the stats about how well the economy is doing, the great news is that recruitment companies are hiring again.  Given how marginal (in terms of profitability) many recruitment companies have been in the last few years,  they must be confident that there is a volume of business to be won.

Have you ever applied to a company only to find a communication barrier on the recruiting end? Or, in the very least, tried to look at a company career page and find it hard to navigate?

Think of your job ad as a marketing landing page and you want to generate leads and in our case candidates. Whether you are creating a…

Sure, the Society of Human Resources Management's annual conference in Orlando was over a couple weeks ago, but in the spirit of late adoption that infused the conference, figured that a stale post was, for the target audience, right on time.  It was my fifth straight SHRM conference, and what really struck me…
