Seven Billion

The United Nations projects that the seven billionth person will be born today somewhere in the world. Our ever increasing population and the demands it creates for goods and services generates tremendous opportunities for companies of all sizes. Simply being ready to serve a wider audience, however, does not constitute the preparation necessary to compete in the new economy. You must eliminate, innovate, and automate aspects of your business to hone your competitive edge:

This October - Staffing Ghouls, Ghosts and Sourcering The Good Old Fashioned Way

It's just so hard to believe it will be 2012 before we know it.  Around the corner - November, December and holidays.


As I write this this forum has been developing and evolving just like everything else in staffing land.  Sourcing or as I like to call it sourcering or working the staffing magic has…

Increasing Your Profits


Two important issues face the staffing industry: price and low market penetration. By increasing how many buyers write checks, both can get better.

Only 18% of companies use staffing and recruiting services each year. That gives you 82% potential to improve the market share of your business. As you get more of that 82% to buy, quote your full fees and rates knowing that you are worth it. This one act alone can bend your profitability in the right direction.

So, keep…

Going Hmm versus Nodoubt

Going Hmm versus Nodoubt 

So there seems to be 2 lines of

thinking with regards to what to look for when reviewing a resume. 

Some recruiters, staffing

professionals, and hiring managers look for a nodoubt, sure things, guarantee

hire when they review a resume anything less gets pushed aside.

Others look for the HMM, the maybe,

the worth talking to.

So which approach is the…

Recruiter Turnover is GREEEAAT!!

All right, so it has been way too long. 11 months to be exact.  Every superhero goes into hiding. Mr. Incredible did with all of the supers, but he came back.

I have come out of hiding called work. Over the last eleven months, our team has done a major implementation of a new applicant tracking system, had 100% turnover in my department and due to the incredible efforts of our sales department our business is up which means we have been knee deep in requisitions. With the exception of…

Using Pay-Per-Click Advertising as a Tool to Attract Passive Candidates

While online sourcing brings definite benefits to recruitment campaigns, the sheer vastness of the World Wide Web means that sometimes it can be difficult to direct your focus and find the holy grail of top-tier candidates.


Have you ever considered pay-per-click advertising? Think of it this way.  Suppose someone searches Youtube for your company’s latest viral video or catchy commercial ad. While they originally searched for your videos because they were looking for some…

Years VS Quality!!

Years VS Quality!!

When reviewing a resume or writing a

job description there is always thought given to years of experience. But the

question is, is it really years of experience that is most important or the

quality of what was done that is the most important.

Let’s say you need a recruiter, but

the emphasis is on sourcing. 90% of the job is going to be sourcing and you

want 8 years of experience as a recruiter.…

No Client, I will not send your ideal candidate

Are You Selling the Flavor of the Month?

Paul is a classic example of being a salesman of the flavor of the month. Every month or two, he sells tasty changes to his strategy. This month, he’s decided that he will handle managing the sales and recruiting team himself. Last month, his branch managers were charged with that task. Two months prior to that, he had divided his staff into pods led by a senior team member. While any one of these initiatives could have worked, none were given the time required to achieve the desired result of… Continue

World vision Versus Funnel Vision!!

World vision Versus Funnel Vision!!


What kind of vision do you use when reviewing resumes or looking at profiles? Do you focus only at the very first few lines? Do you perhaps read the whole thing but only treat each section, each line as an individual entity? If you do that is Funnel vision. Think of a funnel; think you are looking through the big end out of the little end. This allows you to only see a little bit at a time of what…

Preparation Is Key

In my opinion failure to prepare for anything you do in life, never mind my job as a recruiter or for an interview is a fatal sin.


Abraham Lincoln said “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe".  This is the way any successful person should prepare for every battle.  Don’t get me wrong I haven’t always been someone…

Simply Balanced

Most sensible people avoid driving drunk and even driving while overly fatigued, knowing the physical harm they could do behind the wheel of a car. Yet, many of these same sensible individuals are driving their businesses under the influence of little sleep, long working hours, and extraordinary amounts of stress. Little thought is given to the harm that could befall the company and its clients as a result of the poor decisions and inattentiveness that come with being out of… Continue

Sourcing through Facebook: From “Nah” to “Yeah!”

“Facebook and Sourcing?  Nah…”

The debate about Facebook’s revolutionary role in online sourcing rages on.  Some recruiters, citing the site’s reputation as a purely social networking site, claim that its informal atmosphere seemingly precludes any serious professional networking (a niche filled by LinkedIn).  Simply put, they say, Facebook users log-on to have fun, not to look for jobs.  


On the contrary.  As a corporate recruiter,…
