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.

Placing jobs on Twitter just became easier!!

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.

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue
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.…

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…Continue

“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,…Continue
