I’m working on a blog post on job interviews — from the employer side of the desk. After all, there are thousands of “how-to” articles, blog posts, and advice on “acing the interview” from a candidates viewpoint.

Recruitment agencies also know as employment agencies work as the interface between prospective employers and job seekers.

You won’t hear me use the word “feel” very often when it comes to the screening process. As a general rule, you have to be careful not to rely too much on your personal feelings when it comes to recruiting. If you are not disciplined enough to put qualifying the candidate first, you will not find…Continue

A coworker of mine absolutely detests the phrase, "Recruiting is a lot like dating." She says it's cliche and trite; and she is right. The problem, though, with cliches and all things trite, is that they are true.
Why is bears repeating that Recruiting is a lot like Dating:
This could potentially be a VERY long post because I’m talking about an industry that has many inherent flaws. In my opinion, many of the problems we see stem from some fundamental issues…Continue
Agency and corporate recruiters have always had this love/hate relationship. It’s a sibling rivalry of sorts – in some cases each thinks the other doesn’t know what they’re doing. After 10+ years on the agency side, I have a great deal of admiration and respect for those that do it well. I also have a newfound respect for my corporate brothers and sisters as I enter my 7th month on the dark side. I still maintain that recruiters shouldn't be allowed to go internal until they've…Continue

How about using a Staffing Agency? There are many rumors that surround using Staffing as a means to get a job. I am here to help settle those rumors.…Continue
Not all recruiters or recruitment agencies are vultures...or vampires for that matter. When they cold call--they simply want to help in the recruitment challenges an employer faces.
If they appear to be stalking you as a candidate, or as an employer rep--they are simply trying to get access to interested parties, preferably decision makers--and they are 100% dedicated to a mutual benefit.
Yes, there are some bad apples; some…Continue
Like most sequels, this is not as good as the original, but I hope this is a better sequel than Revenge of the Nerds II. Please read #4 first if you are pressed for time.
