Companies hire recruiters for one reason and one reason only: they think that these recruiters can help them get the PERFECT fit for their job openings. Yes, some companies hire these recruiters for other reasons, for cost reasons. They find it cheaper to… Continue

Have you ever been horseback riding? I am solidly in what can only be considered the novice camp. The last time I went horseback riding I was matched up with what appeared to be the oldest horse in the stable. The fact his name was “Old Blue” should have been a tip off. I was joining a group… Continue

As HR Practitioners, we can all agree that any new legislation that adds work to our desks is generally unwelcomed.

Recruiting is difficult. Hiring an awesome employee is a very personal experience for both the candidate and the hiring team. Candidates have aspirations, thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. Recruiters have the same, with the added pressure of big hiring goals to hit. We’ve been curious to know more about the things corporate recruiters perceive to being in their in… Continue

I have had a few of these types of managers in the past - the types that for some reason intimidate and belittle the candidate even before the interview begins OR within the interview goes so far south in the way they question the candidate. Where the interview becomes more like a Sopranos Mob Inquisition, or almost like an FBI interrogation that the candidate is ready to throw in the towel before the interview even completes.
Let me warn you now - I will say this with all due… Continue

Ongig believes that one day all job pages will have live interactivity such as a comments/chat feature.
First off, it’s a great experience for the candidate — they get their questions answered (questions that often aren’t answered in a standard job posting).
But it’s great for internal recruiters too — especially for search engine optimization (SEO). Hundreds of candidates Google you and your team and jobs and the more content/text there is on your…

We asked recruiters who are successfully doing contracting to share some of their best marketing tips. The main thing to keep in mind when trying to get contracting job orders is that, while you may be used to dealing with human resources when filling direct-hire job orders, contracting job orders are more often coordinated through the hiring manager.
Here are just a few things recruiters can do to sweep hiring managers off their… Continue

The adoption of the new social media platforms by many employees is of great concern to IT leadership across the country. New technologies can be easily utilized by employees most usually at the expense of the enterprise security, but that is very often not spoken about. I read continuously about the smarter employee, the better employee, etc… yet find little information discussing the enterprise effect of such adoption. Social media though important does not offer the large benefit or… Continue

I must say this is one of the best lines I have read in a long time and such a forgotten trait of an experienced manager looking for the best people. Take a look at this: Before Selling Candidates on the Job Sell them out of the Job. Bottom line - I love it. Professionally it has been a method employed in my own tool box for over a decade and it…

I heard that if you have a goal, you should never say that you're going to start it sometime in the future. Don't say, "I'll start that tomorrow morning" or "I'll do that after ____" because it creates a sense of non-urgency in your subconscious. If you can put it off for awhile, why bother doing it at all? If you want to achieve something, fully commit by taking the first step RIGHT NOW.

I was in IT for several years before being laid off a few years ago. I was laid off right before September 11, 2001 and was working on my MBA in eCommerce at the time. I found myself in a very difficult situation as many other people did during that time. Because I was working on my MBA and was almost finished, companies I interviewed with considered me 'over-qualified' for most positions I applied and interviewed for.
I stumbled into IT… Continue
