Since its introduction in 1985 Microsoft Excel has become one of the go to applications for all manner of business / data related tasks. Straight out of the box Excel is a great tool for storing and sorting relatively uncomplicated data and with advanced knowledge Excel is capable of much more.

Actually, Recruiting IS Sales - How I've Come To Accept It

I read the article by Kyle Lagunas about recruiting, and how it’s not like selling at all. And while I appreciate his thoughts, I think they are misguided, and frankly, I still think he’s speaking as an "expert" in an area where he doesn’t have any applicable experience. This is akin to me giving stock advice. Sure, I have a brokerage account, but I lack the Series 7 that would be critical for me…

Poverty, debt and obesity are complex and serious societal issues with multiple potential causes and no simple solutions. That’s why society looks for easy targets to blame.

Recruiting to Lose

"I think you need to have a program that funnels the right people to the top." — Rick Patzke

That quote sounds like it comes from a recruiting professional, no? Well, it doesn’t. Rick Patzke is actually chief operating officer of USA Curling, but he is speaking about recruiting, in a roundabout way. And yes, this is your obligatory Winter Olympics-themed post... just in time for the closing ceremony. Phew.

USA Curling takes …

Delighting your clients is so easy....

“Under promise and over deliver” – these are the very wise words of Tom Peters. It’s such a simple concept but in practice so few businesses manage to do it.

This baffles me.

If we manage our client’s expectations, if we let them know exactly what they can expect and then deliver on, and if possible…

The 'Lucky Seven' Business Development Strategies for Recruiters

Nothing interests a CEO more than the topic of increasing revenue. Nothing.  If anyone tries to tell you different, they may be fooling themselves.  Sure, leading a company to greatness takes specific skills that are both innate and learned but the most important aspect of being a CEO is creating the pathways that will…

Why Recruiters Should NOT care about The Cloud

There has been much talk about Cloud computing or SAAS recruitment software and the massive benefits for a recruitment agency to move to the Cloud. I find this quite amazing for two reasons, firstly most people I speak to aren’t really sure what this means and secondly the whole argument seems to have absolutely nothing to do with finding candidates, making placements or anything else to do with recruitment.

 

For the life of me I can not see what all the fuss is about, but…

I regularly run free recruitment software and technology webinars and yesterdays, on Advanced Sourcing, proved more popular than most. This is a recording followed by my notes on what happened.
