3 ways to stop other companies taking your candidate

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. At least until someone else comes along with a better offer and lo and behold – that client has been ‘gazumped’ by the lure of a higher salary.

This happened to one of my clients recently, with the candidate turning down a role (despite already having accepted it) for the sake of a few thousand pounds…

How to Get Companies to Give YOU Their Job Orders

In a fantasy world, when you approach a new company for job orders, they would say "Where have you been? We have been waiting for you!" and give you a couple of solid job orders to fill.

In the real world, you are one of several recruiters trying to get the same job orders from the same companies.  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…

4 Recruiting Trends to Watch in 2012

It's a new year, and the usual predictions abound about what will be hot in 2012.  Based on what we've been reading and hearing, here are the recruiting trends we think recruiters should keep an eye on:

1. Social Media Recruiting Wars - The race is on to see which social network, if any, will unseat LinkedIn as the recruiter's social network of choice.  When it was released last year, a lot of people had their money on Google+ due to it's ability to…

Who is the Employer of Record in Contract Staffing Situations?

In a typical contract staffing situation, a company utilizes the services of a worker for a specific amount of time and outsources the employment of that worker to a third party. That third party is often referred to as the Employer of Record and serves as the W-2 employer for that worker.  As the Employer of Record, the third party takes on the legal liability and the responsibility for the following employment…

Job Ads for Recruiters Drop in October

In the first half of this year, hiring demand for Recruiters was growing – a promising sign that employers planned to do more hiring. However, over the past several months, the volume of job ads for Recruiting professionals has declined significantly. In October, demand dropped again with about 4,700 new job ads posted online for Recruiters, 10% less than in September and down 9% versus one year ago.

 

Volume of Online Job Ads for Recruiters…

Hiring Demand for Recruiters Still Growing – Up 10% in September

During September, more than 5,300 job ads were posted for Recruiters. Although a decline from August's post-recession high in demand (when more than 6,000 new jobs were advertised online), this represents not only a 10% year-over-year increase, but also 7% growth from the beginning of the year. An increase in hiring demand for Recruiters may be a good indicator that companies plan on hiring more in the coming months. Employers and staffing firms each placed about half the job ads during this…

To Survive, And Perchance To Dream…..



Let me throw all the crap against the wall and lets just see what sticks!! It seems to me that the older I get; the more I hear about the people who have forgotten about why they got in “The Game” and settle instead into complacency and give up on the successes they had plans for or the dreams they once held near and dear. This is not…

Authenticity, Believability and Commitment



To me, there seems to be two types of people in the workforce: Those that can and those that wish they could. Once we realize which of the two groups we are currently in, then we can take the steps necessary to advance to the more prestigious group. It has been beaten into us from the time we are old enough to understand that we always have to be…

How do you Become The Best….

Six words which form what I think is one of the great un-answered questions of all time. Others have tried, come close or failed to attain the brassiest of brass rings—and that is to discover how one becomes the best!!



Is it a course or an educational module? Is it something found with style, a trendy newspaper, or the tabloids? Is it an expression? or possibly a frame of mind? Could be…any or all of the above plus other thoughts not yet expressed. Or it could be none of the above… Continue

Changes...

Change occurs all the time, usually in subtle ways but occasionally in a manner that feels like a ton of bricks were dropped on your head. This then leads to a lot of questions and sometimes a little hesitation as a new direction is chosen and the path is mapped out. Unsure of the destination you head out (knowing that the journey is half as much fun as reaching the destination.)

This is usually the point where you start to ask questions, verify the new goals and set up the strategy…

Friends and Enemies...

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends”- Dominique Pirolo, 2011

It is an interesting thought that we would give that much power over our affairs to people who may not always have our best interest at thought.

Dealing with those who go against the grain is nothing new, so to think these individuals will agree to your ideals is quite a stretch. Its those whom we refer to as friends that deserve to be…

I Want You to Want Me!!!!

“People will hate you, rate you, break you, and shake you; How strong you stand is what makes you”- Judy Reynolds, Facebook 2011.

Interesting comment I received via Facebook the other night. And how timely and true it could really be. Everyone wants to be number #1, sometimes so much so, that they forget the things they felt were important at one time, or feel that success is the be all and end all. To me, this all comes down to merit, how much faith we place in ourselves; and how…

How Engaged Are Your Recruiters?

In my mind, the engagement level of an organization's Recruiters are a major indicator of how well that organization's Recruitment function performs.  Over the years I have worked with hundreds of Recruiters in countries all over the world and one of the characteristics that always differentiated the performance of the great Recruiters from their Recruitment colleagues was the high levels of passion and engagement they brought every day to their role and their organization.
