I am one of the lucky few that has the ability to place a new graduate with relatively little to no real world experience.
There is often the chance that someone else's candidate with more…

A year ago my son Benjamin wrote the following poem. This wasn’t at school nor was it for an assignment. While in our hotel in NYC, he grabbed a scratchpad and jotted this down in a matter of minutes.
I’ve always been of the opinion that our children were sent here to teach us more than we have to teach them. I hope Ben’s poem teaches you, inspires you, and propels you into action today. I know stumbling across this over the weekend did just that for me.
Go and Live Your Best…Continue

The longer you talk, the more people tune out. Replace pitches (one-way communication) with Provocative Launching Questions (two-way communication) if you want to engage people and capture and keep their interest.

With any job, it's important to know where you stand and then set goals for yourself, and often times this is a numbers game. As the hiring manager, your goals need to be something tangible and quantitative. It's not enough to show the metrics of your busywork (humber of job ads posted, hours logged or resumes read).
To prove your recruiting and hiring methods work, you…Continue
A few days before arriving here in Copper Mountain, Colorado for our Spring Break ski trip, I asked my sixteen year old son if he thought he still remembered all of his skills. “It’s been five years Ben,” I said. “How do you think you’ll do?”
“Are you kidding,” he said. “All I gotta do is pizza and french fries.”
For those who don’t know what Ben was referring…Continue

Talent Acquisition is a lot like courtship/dating. In Corporate Talent Acquisition - you have to be a grade-A slut, totally promiscuous, and with rocket-powered libido. That means never settling down with anyone permanently, constantly sourcing new prospects to date and get to know, and cutting…Continue

I have been fascinated by just how far mobile technology has come in the last 5 years and even more so by where it is going. Something that has become so ingrained into our lives has to effect recruiting, right? Well of course it does!
My husband is working out of state this week and while the kids and I sat using the …Continue

Within every company you have groups that are hard to source for, or groups were the demand is higher than the staffing team that is assigned is capable of handling or groups were the demand just jumps. In addition every company has those…Continue

How is it that 115 cardinals at the Vatican can choose a Pope in just 24 hours, yet, in Washington, DC, congressional leaders and the President can’t seem to find a way to compromise on spending and budgets in a way that serves the American people. The answer is priorities. When something is a priority, people always find a way to get it done. While not everyone is happy or even agrees with the choice of Pope Francis, the leaders of the Catholic Church made a nimble choice that allows…Continue

Bring the heart back to Staffing
So “The heart of Rock and Roll” as Huey Lewis sang, is still beating. The question is how is the heart of staffing? From the things I have seen, and heard I seriously question if the “heart of staffing” even exists…Continue
Happy Friday peeps!
I LOVE this video, and your Inbound Recruiter Trainer, wanted to share with you. After you watch it, I can only imagine how you think about how technology (or lack thereof) will affect your recruiting desk.
What is so interesting about technology is I believe it has made it harder for recruiters. IT WILL NOT GET ANY EASIER WITH…Continue

Salespeople are often perceived as being suave, slimy, slippery, and scary. This creates a tremendous opportunity to create a different experience for every buyer, and be more memorable as a result.

These days, HR and Recruiting professionals seem to post new jobs everywhere, from niche sites, to job board aggregators to industry-specific landing pages and of course, all the social channels like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. This can put a new or startup hiring team in a quandary. Where to come up with hefty job board fees? What if we can't afford (or don't need) the sophisticated tools that LinkedIn has to offer? Finally, the most important question of all:
Is having MORE…Continue
