Now that we're into the 2nd half of 2014, we thought we'd review which jobs were most in-demand in Canada during the past 30 days. In the chart below, we listed these jobs, as well as the candidate supply, demand, Demand Pressure, and Hiring Scale scores for each job,…Continue

OK, hate is a strong word. I am sure she does not actually hate you. (Well, maybe not).
But let’s say you irritate her, disappoint her, and ultimately incline her to regard you more as a liability than an asset. And that can only end in tears.
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…Continue

If you ask anyone in business how important customer service is, they’ll all answer the same way: very. That’s because they know a bad…Continue
Recruiters are responsible for bringing in candidates who are the best of the best. However, they can only gather the most innovative and proficient talent pool to select from if they have the right tools. Even if they are the right tools and skills, there is always the chance they could be used better. Technological tools are constantly developing, and you can’t use tools you don’t have the…Continue
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…Continue
This is the 9th in the series on lesser known sites to source from. As you saw in the first one we used x-raying to source, well guess what we are again and guess what it still works and it works for free.
The 7th site we will discuss is…Continue
Millennials are often considered entitled, lazy, and everything in between. Not a very good stereotype to try and enter the workforce with. People ask if they are ready for the workforce because they are generally assumed to be lackadaisical when it involves responsibility. The real question, however, is whether the workforce is ready for…Continue

The perfect interview… a dream come true. For a recruiter or hiring manager there is almost no better feeling than a perfect interview with a dream candidate. Unfortunately, the hiring manager can’t really control the quality of the candidate. You can, however, control the quality of the interview. First, actually take the time to read the…Continue

So it behooves me when a client insists through actions or words that they can do what I do, do it better and oh, by the way, it’s not that…Continue
The historic act of headhunting is quite disturbing, yet fascinating. The literal practice of taking and preserving a person’s head after killing them, has advanced from ancient times to the 21st century.
Figuratively, the aggressive nature of the word has carried over to the modern day recruiting industry. In our …Continue

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…Continue
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.

Last night I moderated a panel discussion on Sourcing Strategies at Quirky in New York. This was sourcing from an attraction and engagement perspective — Shally or Glen were not on my panel — so no boolean magic.
Our magic involved creating conversations through new-generation…Continue
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? That would be an example of poor employer branding. A company who is candid with candidates about their company and the application process is more likely to have happy employees. Truth is,…Continue
And the problem is that when something like that gets…Continue
If you have skills, for example writing, web design, graphic design or photo editing skills, you may be interested in the idea of working from home. For many people, working at home via the web is a way that they can use their skills no matter where…Continue

A job post is useless if no one sees it. The ‘job search,’ as the term implies, requires that talent searches for jobs based on criteria such as company, job title, location, and more. To ensure that your job posting ranks high among search results for these relevant keywords, you need an SEO optimized job posting. 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…Continue
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…Continue
