Oh LinkedIn, how you vex me! You are like nicotine, a.k.a. the worst drug ever. I smoked, then I quit, then I started again, then I quit, then i started again and THEN I really quit for good. This is how I see you, LinkedIn. I need you to do my job but I hate you oh so much. You are not good for me, at all, but I crave you especially after I have been drinking...coffee that is...You are great first thing when I wake up and right before I go to bed. I need to just look at a…Continue

A few weeks ago I discussed some recruiting and hiring trends that were on the rise in 2016, and are expected to continue rising in 2017. Although that was by no means a thorough examination of the current composition of the average business environment, the reoccurring theme was, in short: increased use of…Continue

Corporate recruiting departments lack financial transparency and accountability needed to align agency hiring performance with authorized incentives. In some cases, it's designed that way, making "kickbacks" a sad yet common (and all too casual) practice resulting in unauthorized incentives and…Continue

The Talent Acquisition profession is evolving rapidly due to the Digital Marketing Age. We are slowly moving from performing full cycle Recruitment processes alone to Employee & Employer Branding as well.

I have been a recruiter for almost 20 years, the bulk of which has been on the external agency side. I have worked for agencies of all shapes and sizes. The big firm churn and burn, let's bring in 20 new recruiters and hopefully 2 will make it at least 6 months, style. The small 5 person shop run by the big producer who assumed he would, of course, be a strong manager and yet his firm has 100% turnover every year because he isn't, in fact, a good manager. I'm sure most of…Continue

I have stayed on the sidelines and read a lot of articles, talked with people in my industry and other sales verticals, and just plain have taken stock on how I get new accounts. The death of the “Cold Call” is very pre-mature. I can’t count the articles on line and that come to my desktop stating I’m…Continue

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures. That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree.
I don’t mean giving them training sessions on the illegal questions to ask during interviews. I don’t mean giving them training sessions of any kind.
I mean getting hiring managers to give timely feedback on candidates submitted for their review.

The logic is simple enough. When you’re in a decision making position you’re expected to make decisions. Trouble is, every day managers all over Australia – and the world – struggle to actually do it, putting things off for all manner of reasons and generally erring on the…Continue

I read an article recently espousing the deep dive candidates MUST do while making it "personal" for their cover letters... must have been an English major who wrote the article.
Recruiters may not…Continue

Depending on the hiring manager, recruiter or human resources department - interviewers may not necessarily have as much time to interview as they wish. I've seen interviews that last from thirty minutes to a chain of interviews lasting eight hours. Regardless, interviewers need to make sure to take advantage of the time spent interviewing and more often than not, they ask questions that don't necessarily give a real understanding of the candidate.…Continue
Finding a great manufacturing employee to fill a position is becoming increasingly more challenging. Part of this has to do with the skills gap found in younger generations. This does not refer to the gap in skills regarding the actual work that your employees must…Continue

As 2016 ends, experts are trying to predict which recruiting trends from this year will carry into 2017, but there is still some debate. Regardless of which candidate you voted for— and we’re not picking sides here —no one can deny that, with the election of Trump, the dynamics of American practices…Continue
