1 Year Anniversary at New Recruiting Job & 10 Year Wedding Anniversary Parrallels

1 year in to the new Recruiting Staffing role and I have a great deal to be pleased about.  I also have some personal reflections about how I can move the proverbial client satisfaction mountain to even new greater heights.

Be a Good Doctor with your Employer Branding

I was talking to a colleague about messaging the other day and he had a really good analogy that I wanted to share in thinking about how and what you communicate with your target market.  He mentioned trying to be a “good doctor” when you are creating messaging and deciding on what to communicate.

Here’s the concept.  A good doctor won’t tell you all the degrees he or she has on their wall, what they studied in medical school or the latest medical research they published but they will…

5 Myths about Recruitment Marketing

Within any organization there are a number of things that you take for granted as being true in your process and strategy.  Things that in thought may not appear to be a big deal but given a second look may have a considerable impact on your overall results.  And in many cases, this is not done with intent but happens because you expect your technology and process to accurately handle these areas.  The real problem is that some organizations don’t even realize they have a problem.
