When it comes to job interviews, recruiters often find themselves in the fantastical realm of fiction. There's something about the tension of the situation and the acute need to impress that turns people into elaborate story-tellers, full of exaggerations and inflated claims.
In fact, a whopping 81% of people lie during job interviews. Yes, those digits are the right way around...81%! For…Continue

Finding professional and talented employee is as difficult as a job-hunting process. Not only job-seekers try hard to show their worth to get hired. Companies don’t relax either. Their task is to attract qualified specialist and keep him interested. And while some companies count on wages as their basic argument, others establish corporate culture and offer an employee its…Continue

A misconception amongst many hiring managers is the belief that being a recognised or international company/brand is enough to attract the best talent. New research has now proven statistically that this is definitely not the case. The real truth is, regardless of your company size, finding…
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. But, how about “acing the interview” as employer, while at the same time providing a great…Continue
“Screw your cubicle farm!” The free agent nation is here.
In 2001, Dan Pink published a bestselling and forward-thinking business book titled Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself. By all current reports, that future has arrived.
If the millennial generation will become predominantly free agents, how will this impact recruiting and HR over the next decade?

Using corporate emails as a way to connect and recruit passive candidates allows the recruiter to create awareness regarding potential opportunities to these highly desired professionals. It presents opportunities directly to the passive candidate talent…Continue
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.

Recruiting is difficult. Hiring an awesome employee is a very personal experience for both the candidate and the hiring team. Candidates have aspirations, thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. Recruiters have the same, with the added pressure of big hiring goals to hit. We’ve been curious to know more about the things corporate recruiters perceive to being in their in…Continue
Succession planning is often found on the back burner, and with it, a focus on retention. This makes zero sense. Succession planning is a vital part of keeping a business running with as few hiccups as possible,…Continue

I often get questions from recruiters in regards to making phone calls; in fact I just received a call from Vince asking how I deal with call-reluctance. While you can’t change the reaction of the person on the other end of the phone, you can change how you approach making your phone calls to better prepare…Continue

This data relates to the success ratios of the various sourcing channels their clients use to direct hire in to the company.

Let's assume you have spent your money wisely and purchased a content management platform (like ours - sorry it needed to be said) that is technically compatible with the needs of Google and its peers in terms of page indexing. Then the next thing you must get right is the linguistics you add to the site, that matches the linguistic styles of your ideal visitors. You will have determined who these…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
