Discrimination: Tattoos and Body Modification Challenge to Business Casual and Business Attire

The face of the up and coming American and Canadian worker is changing and it’s often decorated with ink and metal. A recent study in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology has found that just under half of people in their 20’s have either a…

The Journey East: How A Major Career Choice Helped me Better Understand Candidate Experience.

I stood proudly looking down from Ensign Peak in Salt Lake City, UT, on August 11, 2012.  One could not help but see that a view from where famous Pioneer Leaders of the LDS faith nearly 165 years before had used as a planning platform for the city that would come to be known as Salt Lake would enable the planning and estimation steps needed.  I sat back on a rock admiring the view near a poignant and interesting marker marking the historic spot where the survey and landscaping mapping was…

OT - The Moon Song - beyond the Missouri Sky

Work's at days' end...when it's about to be lights out.  Listening to the mellowest of this Charlie Haden & Pat Matheny construct of:

The Moon Song from their beyond the Missouri Sky album/disc.

Words to the Wise - Recruiter in the Balance

Words to the wise from a recruitment veteran of forty years- besides being dedicated to the recruiter's life (whatever that may mean to you) along with taking care of personal responsibilities with family, etc.--make an effort to have sideline activities such that they take you away from the rigors of recruiting (because traversing the terrain can become rigorous, even difficult).

I say this for two reasons—particularly for…

Recruiting Firms ,being more and more dependent on technology can be at risk of running off the rails in a heartbeat causing a costly disruption in business if we do not have a business disruption plan. Consider what would happen if your internet provider was down for a week. How devastating would it be if a lightening strike or a power failure shut down your ability to access your computer for more than a few hours. Do you use an online backup for data and financial information, suppose…

What would be the "One Best Approach" to the recruitment. Initial screening and final selection process ?

Negotiating a Higher Fee

As a recruiter, how can you command a higher fee?

Well, here’s one idea that sounds almost too good to be true—you simply ask for it. Savvy recruiters know that at any given point in time, there are companies out there with staffing needs so urgent, they'll do whatever it takes to get the position filled.

Like stranded airline passengers who are sick and tired of hanging around the terminal, they're more than willing to open their wallets, just to get… Continue

Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Q&A

In absences of my posts on, many of my readers have been sending me questions directly, which I’m absolutely thrilled about. I thought that it might be helpful to introduce a Q&A section to my blog where I answer all of these questions and make them available to others. I will only using the questions and not private information such as names, emails, or companies. With that being said, please feel free to send me any applicant tracking… Continue

Job Orders and Bedside Manner

There’s nothing more basic—or more vital to your success—than the ability to write a strong, clear and qualified job order or search assignment. After all, you’re only as effective as your ability to fill jobs. And the best way to fill jobs is by having a compelling story to tell your candidates, and a clear mandate to do YOUR job to the best of your ability.

Writing up a great job order is part art and part science. The science revolves around information: getting a description of… Continue

Too Much Training?

I know this sounds weird coming from a trainer, but it occurred to me that as an industry, we might be a tad over-trained.

For example, some recruiters seem to be information addicts. They’re constantly on the lookout for all manner of training and coaching, but seem to make the same mistakes over and over again. There’s nothing wrong with training, as long as there’s some LEARNING going on.

Of course, at the other extreme are the recruiters who are totally self-taught. As… Continue

Compassion for Your Unemployed Candidates

You're a decent person, and you care about others. So how do you deal with the growing number of job-seekers who show up at your door?

With kindness and grace, I hope. You may not be able to find everyone a position—which is true even in the best of times—but at the very least, you can show them respect and offer some professional guidance.

I remember my first recession as a recruiter, and the impression it made. The same candidates who wouldn't take my calls a year… Continue

Employment Branding -

There is little doubt that employment branding is one of the hottest topics in recruiting these days. Unfortunately, what a lot of firms implement in the name of branding really has nothing to do with employment branding.

Defining Employment Branding

Employment branding is unique in that it is the only long-term recruiting strategy. The viral-based perception management program designed to attract top-quality applicants is based on the premise that the organization is well-managed in… Continue

Missed Opportunities: Talent Intelligence During the Onboarding Process -

IT is widely accepted that, in small pockets around the world, the second iteration of the war for talent is well underway. Emerging companies in China, for example, are invading small rural villages in an effort to convert agrarian citizens into knowledge workers, and professional service firms are eagerly grasping at once undesired college new grads.

It would be logical to assume that growth-oriented firms would be devising new methods to uncover hidden sources of talent and fend off… Continue
