Are You Using a Gold-Medal ATS?

Read the latest post from Elise Jennings!

The Olympic Games are underway! Just six days ago we watched 10,000+ athletes walk out during the opening ceremony waving and smiling at over 4 million international spectators. One can only imagine what a population increase of 4 million people would be like. The UK went through a great deal of preparation in London to not only accommodate the visitors, but also when it came to the organization and readiness of the workforce at…

TOMS Shoes and Your Business

TOMS shoes are a feel good purchase.

Buy a pair today, give a pair to someone in need tomorrow. It’s a great cause.

But TOMS has been criticized for ignoring the root of a much bigger problem. The argument is, sure it’s great to provide a kid in a third world country a new pair of shoes. But, they’re still poor.…

Is Your Staffing Company E3 Certified?

Whether an employee of staffing company, a candidate working with a staffing company to find their next career, or a company that has hired the services of a staffing company,  one had better make certain that it is E3 Certified. What is an E3 Certification you ask?

The Resume: Is it alive, dead or just another data point?

With the rise of social recruiting, online profiles and alternative resume solutions, the resume has long been resumed dead by many.  However, while the concept makes some sense, much of the recruiting technology out today is still tied to the resume as the main source of information needed from candidates in the apply process.  This was OK 5 years ago but with the wealth of information available online, there are a number of tremendous data points available to recruiters to make good…

Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs and Recruiting

Abraham Maslow developed his hierarchy of needs by studying successful people.  How does your company’s recruiting process match up with our human needs?

 

Obviously the physiological needs are taken care of through compensation and benefits.  Your company’s offers need to be competitive in order to attract the best candidates.  Compensation and benefits are generally only the tip of the iceberg.  Sometimes they are indicative of the company’s attitude toward its…

LinkedIn doesn’t like recruiters - Finding Candidates Contact Details

My recruitment webinar this week was all about making contact with candidates particularly when you may not have all their contact details. The Social Media sites like LinkedIn and Facebook really limit a recruiters ability to get in touch and unless you already have their details on your ATS or recruitment system it can be a real challenge to make contact.…

Get Off The Vendor List. Right Now. I Mean It.

I’m starting to notice something. A lot of the complaining about internal recruiters comes from TPRs trying to work with large companies where they’re trapped by or redirected to the dreaded vendor list. You know the ones – Fortune 500 Company, hundreds of positions, and you’ve got junior HR chickie saying you have to be on a list with 40 of your closest friends before you can submit a candidate. Never mind that your guy is perfect for the job. Forget that the VP of Whatever is your best…

3 ways to super-charge your ATS with technology

For many organizations, the ATS represents the central technology that they use to recruit top talent.  It provides a great way for them to capture applicants and manage the hiring process from apply to hire.  Through these functions, the ATS is an integral technology for your recruiting process.

 

However, when you think about the recruiting process, the ATS by itself leaves a little bit to be desired.  While it does a great job with managing the hiring process, it often lacks…

Dare to Be Different – Why you Need to Change How you Hire?

In a world topsy-turvy with change, rampant new technology, social media, new competitive entrants and a global economy, companies are still hiring the old-fashioned way.

You Applied to How Many Jobs This Week??

How many job applications are too many?  One night I was clicking around the blogosphere when I stumbled across an entry from July 2010 entitled Dear HR Pros, Be Transparent. This blog was written by a recent college grad and intern who was struggling with his job search. He thinks craigslist is a joke (don’t tell my boss, that’s where she found HER job). He wonders if…

Must-Haves in Executive Recruiting Data Systems

I’ve had two experiences implementing executive recruiting systems, once at a boutique search firm and another at Lockheed Martin. In the former, we were moving from a paper-based system to a digital one. In the latter, the function was in start-up, so we had the luxury of beginning from scratch.

I learned a lot through both experiences. At the boutique firm, we…
