Size doesn't matter...

I tried to make a point at the recent #SRCONF that, when it comes to the employer brand, size no longer matters.  Big is not longer beautiful.  Money no longer talks - people do. Judging by the looks on the faces of the audience I failed miserably.

Ultimately I was trying to make the…

You thought those interview questions were tough…Try these

Not sure how everyone else feels about the many posts and articles circulating on “tough interview” questions. What I have noticed is that many seem to have a bit of a rinse and repeat rhythm to them – same questions reworded. Here are a few of the commonly suggested tough interview questions:

  • What would you say are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?
  • Why should we hire you?
  • Give us an example where you encountered a disagreement with a…

Achieving Organizational Alignment – Getting all employees to move in the right direction

Achieving organizational alignment is a strategic HR activity that can deliver significant benefits to an organization. Alignment is more than ideal state.

Alignment is one of the power words in an organizational change consultant’s toolkit. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t use or refer to alignment.

Some years ago, I…

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.

In-House Recruiters/HR v Agency Recruiters

Yesterday I saw a tweet from @greg_savage referencing his blog post about HR and Internal Recruiters needing to lift their game. There were some decent points, some of which I've talked about in other posts. I actually think that some of Greg's observations are also true of agency recruiters too! It's also important to realise there is a difference between an HR…

Advantages and difficulties of the third recruitment party

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…

Dealing with FCRA

Employers and recruiters are aware that hiring an applicant with a criminal or civil background or who has falsified credentials may carry enormous legal thus a large economic loss.  To avoid this, employers and recruiters are relying on pre-employment background screening.  This makes sense because pre-employment background promotes a safe and more profitable workplace by protecting the employer form negligent hiring litigation, incidents of harassment or workplace…
