How can you do it? How do you find the elusive, hard to find, perpetual purple squirrel time and again, or do you need to - will the candidate with those…Continue

Last Thursday Linkedin announced that they are making changes to their InMail policy.
In short they are trying to reduce the amount of ineffective bulk InMails that are sent, hopefully improving the overall candidate experience which in turn should result in improved response rates for recruiters.
Linkedin is doing this by targeting the two percent of Recruiter users…Continue
For many years, I’ve often pondered what separates good recruiters from great recruiters.

The #1 mistake I see people make is to believe the Face-to-Face interview is about their specific qualifications and how they meet the requirements for the position being discussed.
In my experience, the “in-person” interview is only marginally focused in this area, and thus largely focused on your soft skills such as having a pleasing personality, ability to build relationships, strong time management and organizational skills, and of course,…Continue

I recommend my clients do both a background check and reference check of their new team member candidates. Why?
As it relates to reference checks, you would be amazed at the number of candidates who select inappropriate references such as their Aunt, girlfriend, or college roommate. Additionally, about 25% of the time my candidates give me references who provide a poor endorsement, or who never respond to the reference inquiry (a delay in…Continue

I was very fortunate to speak at the 2014 LinkedIn SourceIn event in New York last month. My topic was "I was for big data before I was against it." Everyone was awake when I was done, so I added it to my "win" column. These are the points I addressed.
# Why are recruiters doing more posting and praying than ever before?
# Who are some masters of big data?
It happened in a weak moment, I looked at everything in front of me, the emails, the open requisitions, the Instant Messenger, the weight of perceived change, the choice to pursue a home after renting for so many years, the shifts of staffing momentum and the shifts of personal choices in my friends, church, home life, et al. I pushed back and told myself I need to take a walk. For 10 minutes I just took a walk and took everything in. It was a moment where I was overwhelmed. It was a…Continue

Recruiters are responsible for bringing in candidates who are the best of the best. However, they can only gather the most innovative and proficient talent pool to select from if they have the right tools. Even if they are the right tools and skills, there is always the chance they could be used better. Technological tools are constantly developing, and you can’t use tools you don’t have the…Continue
Millennials are often considered entitled, lazy, and everything in between. Not a very good stereotype to try and enter the workforce with. People ask if they are ready for the workforce because they are generally assumed to be lackadaisical when it involves responsibility. The real question, however, is whether the workforce is ready for…Continue
