Recruiters can quickly get sucked into their own world, meaning that filling the position is all they see at the end of the tunnel. And that's a great Key Performance Indicator, after all, recruiters depend on getting "butts in seats".
Whether you're corporate or agency, the mark of a good recruiter is finding the right person for the job. In fact,…

I don't know many tech recruiters who don't at least have a grudging appreciation of Dice. Not only was Dice one of the sponsors of Talent42, their new President Shravan Goli gave a presentation on their latest offering, Open Web. I think he said he's been on the job for… Continue

I often get questions from recruiters in regards to making phone calls; in fact I just received a call from Vince asking how I deal with call-reluctance. While you can’t change the reaction of the person on the other end of the phone, you can change how you approach making your phone calls to better prepare… Continue

Everyone who is anyone is offering their predictions for what the biggest trends in recruiting and hiring will be in 2013, so we figured we might as well throw our hat in the ring. Based on what we have read and discussions we have had with recruiters over the past year, here are our predictions for 2013:

Sometimes, the client experience can feel a bit like buying a house. I put forward a great candidate, they do a perfect interview and are offered the job. Client and candidate are happy.

After meeting with "no less than 100 staffing agencies" over the past several years, Matt Lowney, EVP Talent & Operations for the Buntin Group, offers some tips to help recruiters… Continue

Volume of Online Job Ads for Recruiters… Continue
