Sourcing and searching the variables.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As some of you read in my post on research, using that research to improve your

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

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.

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…Continue

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.

I get the feeling, knowing ESPN, that they’ll show it again so hopefully you get an opportunity to see the…Continue
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…Continue

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…
