Today if you want to have a successful business you need to think through the technologies you are using. If you are not on the cutting edge then you are leaving room for your competition to come out with new ways to dominate the market. So… Continue

Personal medical information of any kind is one thing being trapped in secret under any circumstances. It’s not only due to HIPAA compliance requirements but because possession of such information is unquestionably a delicate personal matter. Some people find developing a certain diagnosis very distressing, and even the chance of having one of these certain diagnosis. Disclosing such information even by chance may ruin someone’s life or career, not speaking of the serious… Continue

It was 8 years ago in July 2008, where I found myself reflective, hopeful, pondering from a bird's eye view my Career vantage point while overlooking Lake Tahoe in a year where I had steered my career back to the staffing landscape. It was a welcome reprieve from what up until that point had been a busy year. Lake… Continue

I am constantly amazed at how poorly many company switchboards handle incoming telephone calls. How your phone is answered and how that call is handled says so much about your business.
Just today whilst phoning clients and prospective clients I have had company names barked at me, been put on hold… Continue

One reason I find business so fascinating is the intrinsic ability to create something so unique and specific.
Enzo Ferrari created a company that sells and races absolutely mad expensive cars and carries enormous prestige. It didn't just "happen". He envisioned it, he planned it, he worked at it, and he enjoyed it. The same applies to every other great company. The inverse is true for the mentally handicapped companies.
Anyone who thinks great companies are a matter of "right… Continue

I f you’ve started your job search or looked at career resources, you’re probably hearing this word a lot—Networking. You may be thinking you don’t know any professionals in the career that interests you, or find the task daunting.

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… Continue

Since 1981, I have worked with over 3000 hiring managers across the United States. Most of whom have never been trained how to interview. If they haven’t been taught how to interview, they certainly have not been taught how to select the best fit. Therefore, they bring their own unique interview techniques and questions to the interview party. Of course, the candidates bring their own special treats to the interviewing party; and I will share some of those also.

“I recruit using Dice.” “I recruit using social media.” “I recruit using LinkedIn.” “What is the best job board to recruit Sales (or IT or Marketing or Finance, etc) candidates?” These are all questions I have seen repeatedly in recruitment Yahoo! Groups or in LinkedIn Groups.
It appears that many companies confuse sourcing with recruiting, possibly since many sourcing tools try to sell themselves as recruiting tools. While sourcing is certainly important, it is the third… Continue

If you look back in time, maybe around 40+ years ago, employees found a job within a company and were expected to stay with that same company for their entire career in exchange for a pension and a gold watch or pen. Now times have changed dramatically, most people have 5-8 career changes in their lifetime.
So now employees are faced with a new decision, how to determine when to leave their current job. This may… Continue

This lesson is learned frequently, often dismissed quickly, and tends to be a major player in the success of any aspiration, service or product. Duplicability.
During my brother-in-law’s career path he reached a turning point that offered him an opportunity to gain a skill set that was very specialized, few have, and was on track for future expansion and demand based on the growing trend towards environmental responsibility and renewal. Did he have all this…

For many years I wondered what the real difference was between being good and being great. How do you clearly define it? What is it that puts a person or an organization at a different level than the rest? And I did read Jim Collins’ book which addresses the subject but I got my simple answer in a Homer Simpson DUH! moment watching TV. (How else do you achieve a Homer Simpson DUH! moment?) Ironically it was a General Motors… Continue

With the technological world advancing at a rapid speed, Singapore has become one of the forerunners in the race towards innovation and advancement. Following in the footsteps of California and India, it has been dubbed by Eyal Gura, founder and CEO of PicApp, as on its way to becoming the third Silicon Valley of the world.
Serving as the host to Echelon, Asia’s leading web technology event, Singapore is currently attracting hundreds of new business ventures that concentrate on computing… Continue

When I was younger I had a friend ask me what I felt his faults were. I thought to myself “what an awkward question” and asked him why he had asked me that. He responded “how can I be a better person when I don’t know or can fix my faults”. That conversation has stuck in my head for over 15 years and most recently has been useful in changing my mind on personal… Continue

Over Thanksgiving I had a chance to catch up with some old friends from college and reminisce about some of the great times we had. That was several years ago now, and quite a few things have changed, but nothing has changed more than the definition of spending the evening "chasing girls". Just take a look at the difference in the meaning of the phrase in 1999 and present day:
* 1999 - Going to college parties and staying out until 3 am trying to give any attractive single ladies… Continue

You can imagine what a daunting task it is to write a blog on a topic that has generated enough books to pave the way from St. Louis to San Diego. However since this blog is another in the series of high level blogs on Recruitment Strategy Development, it must be done.
Is interviewing taken seriously in corporate America? If it were, hiring managers would be trained to be more effective in the interviewing process. As a matter of fact, trained and “certified” hiring managers from… Continue

In our last blog, “Recruitment Strategy Development – The Best Qualified Candidate Rarely Gets Hired”, we discussed if a Hiring Manager has not been taught how to interview, they certainly have not been taught how to select a qualified candidate.
For the purposes of Recruitment Strategy Development, RecruiterGuy ties the job description and the interviewing process together. Why? The job description should be specific enough that the skills required to be successful are crystal clear… Continue

That may get your attention. Generally when RecruiterGuy presents to groups on the topic of interviewing, people ask about the interviewing process.
How many times have you sat in an interview and wondered, “How will this person (the Hiring Manager) be able to determine if I am the best qualified candidate? Instead of probing my experience, capabilities, and motivations, he/she just asked me what kind of tree I would choose to be.” Obviously the person advocating that type of… Continue

So far we have discussed why you should develop a recruitment strategy, corporate and third party sourcing and recruiting. Now that you know how you will source candidates, how will you store their resumes? In this blog RecruiterGuy discusses Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).
To define applicant tracking systems in their simplest terms, they are an automated system that allows you to store resumes and candidate information, retrieve resumes, candidate process tracking, and develop… Continue

RecruiterGuy has been on all three sides of the recruiting process. Three sides? Sure, I’ve been a third party recruiter, a corporate recruiting manager, and a candidate.
Today we are discussing the use of third party recruiters as a sourcing and recruiting partner. Wait! Stop rolling your eyes! Remember I’ve been on both sides of the desk. Currently as a contract recruitment consultant often I am on both sides in the same company.
Why would you want to include contingent,… Continue
