Helping those looking for work!!!!!!!!!

Linkedin cheats etc


LinkedIn has become huge, and using it for sourcing has become even bigger. But of course sourcing within LinkedIn has limitations. Below are some tips, tricks, cheats that may help.

Sourcing and searching the variables.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sourcing and searching the variables.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As some of you read in my post on research, using that research to improve your

search strings and sourcing is very important. You will lock yourself into a very small pool of candidates if you do not use the variables.


variables = changeable-for purposes of sourcing it means another word or set of words that will garner the same type of candidates ex “HP…

Interviewing is a 2 way street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interviewing is a 2 way street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Most staffing professionals, hiring managers, and others who do interviews seem to be under a misunderstanding as it relates to interviewing. They feel that they are doing the interviewing and that is all. They do not realize that the candidate is interviewing us as well.


When you are interviewing a candidate the candidate is taking mental notes of everything said,…

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!


I have done several postings on reporting and on matrices. In all of them I stress the importance of not using the stats alone to make decisions. The reason for that is because stats alone do not tell you the whole story. It is imperative you understand the WHY’s behind the numbers. If not you will fall into the hidden land mind that these reports and matrices create. You will make choices based on half…

I had a Dream

I know - very original title on the Friday before MLK day, but at least I’m current! Usually I try to write about something that touches me or inspires me that is related to recruiting. This week, ESPN did a story on Dr. King and how “whites and blacks” agree and disagree on various race issues in sports. I tried to find it on youtube to post it here for you and was unsuccessful. I get the feeling, knowing ESPN, that they’ll show it again so hopefully you get an opportunity to see the…

Is There Really a War for Talent?

I have always had a problem with the war metaphor when talking about Talent Acquisition. War always conjures up images of destruction, dying and wounded, bombings, explosions, protests, POWs and Saving Private Ryan. War also brings with it an expectation of resolution, an end to the conflict, a peace signing.

Under talent acquisition –as – war, there are the…

Revamping Diversity Recruiting Initiatives That Don't Work

I responded to a previous discussion on LinkedIn on this subject with an invitation to provide ideas. I replied with:

"So you're working on revamping your "diversity recruiting

initiative". This suggests that you're not happy with your past effort(s).

Sourcing and recruiting diversity is always a challenge, but my initial advice

is to first look within. All to often poor diversity hiring results are driven

by a hiring process…

Picture worth a thousand words? LinkedIn thread debates for diversity

Should Minorities, Women and Seasoned (older) Workers post their picture on LinkedIN? This question on LinkedIn posted by Derrick Douglas MBA got 118 comments! Wow I am amazed at the perceptions and believe there is an obvious disconnect. One of my favorite activites working with companies is to identify chinks in their corporate armor in terms of Diversity Recruitment. This is where we look at the difference between what we say we value and how we show that. These comments generally ran in… Continue

In Honor... MLK

It is said in a Call to Conscience (the Landmark speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) “that his dream of American moral possibilities expressed a universal hope for mankind.”

I was barely 10 days old when he gave the Eulogy for the youth of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church who were murdered. But these words are still fitting today in many ways..

“And so I stand here to say this afternoon to all assembled here, that in spite of the darkness of this hour (Well), we must not… Continue

Diversity, HR and Technology: Social Media Planning

Susan Hand’s Tips on Social Media

1) Decide! Do it, or decide not to do it. Don’t over think getting involved, learning about it, just start investigating today. If it is fear holding you back or lack of time, start one day at a time.

2) Think and plan! Have a goal and stick to it.

3) Research and Discover! Know what you want to use the resource for and the audience you want to develop or discover. Does that social media site operate in the manner you operate?… Continue

Diversity Recruiting

What is the best way to promote diversity exclusive recruiting services (which include career fairs and direct placement)....through a company's Diversity & Inclusion dept, HR or through the dept with the need?

Most recruiters will naturally say through the hiring manager, however, since employers are very concerned with diversity hiring and compliance, this may ultimately need to pass through specific individuals at some point.

Thanks in advance for your… Continue
