The HR Technology conference is less than a week away and I’m extremely excited about being able to once again attend in Chicago this year (here are my takeaways from last year). As always, the conference remains one of the best ways to stay current with the important trends happening in the HR and recruitment technology space and see the cool new innovations that are on the…Continue
It’s 15 years since McKinsey coined the term ‘the war for talent’. They named a phenomenon that organisations across the world had been experiencing – and the term has reverberated throughout the business world ever since, through booms, busts, upturns and meltdowns.
Having great talent has always been important, of course. Now most organisations see it as critical. But have we been intelligently engaging with talent on all fronts to win this battle for hearts and souls? I don’t think…Continue

Hiring managers and Social Media!!
So first this post is more geared toward corporate recruiting, but some could be applied toward any staffing.
So one of the big questions I get is what can hiring managers (HM) do to help staffing with regards to social media. The answer is simple, a lot.
It can start with ensuring the HMs has a complete LinkedIn profile and at the very least a twitter account. If at all possible a Blog, and accounts with…Continue
Project Management (PM) staffing style!!
So as some of you may figure out this is not my original post. My original post was something I originally wrote and posted on a now defunct site in the last 90s. It appears someone else used it in 2000 and of course I reposted it a few years ago and decided to repost it again. So when I found out all this I decided not to go down the rode of…Continue

To find something you are passionate about is a gift.
To find something that grants you fulfillment and reward is simply priceless.
There are researchers and scientists dedicating their lives for the opportunity to find cures and promote a better state of living. Doctors and nurses comforting the bodies and souls and extending life so that we may see our grandchildren grow and smile. Teachers who see reward every day in the glow of a child’s eye when they realize they have made a…Continue

You never know where or when?
So I was on vacation celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary. We went to Las Vegas. While there I meant this person, from SF who was out of work interestingly enough. I was thinking, okay they are out of work but in Las Vegas. Not being by business I chose to just have a casual conversation. I had not told them what I do for a living. At some point the conversation went back to what they do for a living.
Human Resources Oxford Dictionary definition plural noun: the personnel of a business or organisation, regarded as a significant asset in terms of skills and abilities
There is no doubting the essential role of HR within any business, large or small, however in this ever-changing digital age the increasing importance of technology within HR cannot be underestimated either. At every touch point in the recruitment and…Continue

Rumor, and Innuendo can destroy a career!!
Yup, it is true, it does not matter how good the facts say you are, how good the stats say you are, all that matters is what the "in crowd" "the click" think. It can even be and out and out lie, but if that group of people who are on the "in" think it is true, or propagate it, you are done. Even if you are the top performer in the company.
It is scary to think that in…Continue

Read the latest post from iCIMS blogger, Meghan Shaw!
We may not be proud of it, but even the best of us get hooked on really bad reality TV shows. Most recently I found myself glued to Remodeled – a show that stars modeling industry veteran Paul Fisher, who’s planning to bring together hundreds of small modeling agencies around the world in a new venture called The Network. His mission is to make sure modeling agents…Continue

Empowering Ourselves by making it about ME!!
Our society has gotten to accustomed to the blame game. We are used to everything being “someone else’s” fault. People blame others for their mistakes, and for bad things that happen to them. Blame is assigned to everyone from parents, to friends, and people in another country. It is always “they,” or “them,” or even “you!” That kind of thinking is disempowering. Using words like they and them is saying that…Continue

I had a potential candidate come to be by way of a recent hire. This person was very nice, great communication, smart; they…Continue

Is resume optimizing cheating?
So recently I reposted a few posts to help people looking for work. One of the posts was about optimizing a resume for ATS and resume databases. I posted or reposted it, and got some interesting feedback form a few recruiters. One said I was telling their secrets, that by telling candidates how to optimize their resumes it will mean they will have more junk resumes to read. Another said it was…Continue

Project Management (PM) staffing style!!
One way I have found to be very successful as a staffing professional is to Treat every opening like a project and use the basic PM steps to ensure you do the job right. Step one is to do needs analysis. This is the same thing as your first meeting with your client to determine what they need, write the…Continue
