The job of the HR professional especially when it comes to recruiting has changed. It never was a straightforward process, but it’s even less of one now. The rules have changed on how to acquire and bring top talent in to a given organization. The main reason is a combination of both the Internet and social channels. The review process alone can be staggering from checking up on a candidates Twitter feed, to setting up multiple live interviews. Understanding potential candidates thinking via…Continue

Getting the “MOST” out of yourself,
So this is part #2, pillar 1 on the “MOST” technique.
Pillar 1, Multitasking, the ability to do more than one thing at the same time. When most people hear the word multitask they think 2-3 things at once. However in my world it could mean as many as 15+ things at once or…Continue

Getting the “MOST” out of yourself, the 4 pillars needed to get to the next level.
Often I am asked what are the secrets of my success. When I try to explain it, most people thought some of these secrets were not something you could learn, you either had it or not. To a point this is true, but also to a point you can learn them and as such can get better.
So here I will…Continue

I believe that a constant in our society is that Talent drives innovation and execution. Talent is the key ingredient in all successful companies. Every successful venture has either a single talent or a group of talented people behind it. I don’t know many people who would argue this point.
My question is, “Why don’t more companies and HR types consider the talent of the prospective search consultant in their equation before they hire a search firm?…Continue

PPS, anything that goes wrong in Staffing comes down to PPS!
PPS stands for People, Processes and Systems. Basically the premise is if there is anything wrong within a staffing or for that matter any organization it comes down to either the People, the Process or the systems being used.
For people we are not just talking recruiters, or sourcers. We are talking anyone who has anything to do with staffing, sourcing, hiring of people to the company. That means, the…Continue
After ruffling some feathers on this site yesterday with my post about what is wrong with Recruiters, I thought it apropos to post a counterpoint article about what is wrong with HR. If a guy can't rant on about HR on a site like this, where can he rant?
My typical client is a start-up or mid-sized company mainly because I am able to produce the best outcomes when I am free to…Continue
2012 and beyond, what is coming?
So what is going to be the new in thing in staffing? In my post some time ago titled “Staffing Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow!!” I went over the direction staffing might take in the future and were staffing came from.
Now let see what the coming year has to offer.
Like Social Media was to 2011 , Mobile will be come in 2012. The ability of staffing professionals and…Continue
The problem with recruiters is that most of them are focused on “closing the deal”and all else is just details. They will do anything necessary to simply make a placement and invoice their customer. They don’t have their customer’s best interests at heart. His only concern is getting paid and getting past the guarantee period!
Sad, but true for many, if not most recruiters. Oh sure, they “care” about the outcome. But not more than they care about submitting an…Continue
We’ve all had this happen to us. Just when the process is purring along and our client has made their final candidate selection they go pull the “low-ball” offer! Despite ongoing consultation on what the offer should be, some of these clients still seem to get it wrong!
Even after being retained and after a challenging search and protracted interview process, the client decides that although they know that the candidate is currently making $185,000 salary, and they were prepared to go…Continue
For all those folks out there that think that we are the unnecessary evil, understand the importance of a good recruiter, networker, and ally within your search for a position or hiring decision.…Continue

For many organizations, the ATS represents the central technology that they use to recruit top talent. It provides a great way for them to capture applicants and manage the hiring process from apply to hire. Through these functions, the ATS is an integral technology for your recruiting process.
However, when you think about the recruiting process, the ATS by itself leaves a little bit to be desired. While it does a great job with managing the hiring process, it often lacks…Continue

When is a consultant not a consultant?
So I know allot of companies have changed the title of the staffing professionals to include the term “consultant”. However the problem is their definition of consultant is incomplete. In most cases they are having the staffing professionals (SP) live up to the advice part of being a consultant but not the service part. They want their SPs not to solve the problem but instead advise and help…Continue

The Pillars of Staffing represent the main four points of the staffing process. They are sourcing, recruiter screening, technical screening, and the face to face interview. Now in between the pillars are interconnecting webs which represent main communication points that occur during the cycle and at the beginning and end are the start and stop points or anchors. You can also think of this whole thing as a process bridge, were each anchor is like the beginning and end of a bridge which…Continue
