Is Your Talent Analytics Software Really Just an Excel Spreadsheet?

Have you been on Quora?  I’ve been on the site for a few years now but mainly as a lurker rather than actually offering some advice to people.  I get an email from them daily that updates me on a random assortment of topics that I ticked boxes for indicating that I find interesting.  The new…

Leaving your company? Exit stage left.

Preserving your brand when staff leave and preserving your personal reputation when you move to a new company should be both party’s main aim.

We work within media agency, digital agency, sales and research & insights and I would say brand preservation is a key pre-requisite in any sector regardless of the industry.  Some good old…

Effective Desk Management - A Little Bit of the Magic That Makes For Great Recruiting

Prioritization, Passion, Grit, Determination, Goals, and Steadiness.  Some adjectives if you will that define my desk management strategy.  On any given staffing day, in any given state, nation, or country, across the US and across the World, talent management continues to evolve, change and bring with it new days and new ways of seeing the world.

Employer Brand Leadership - Is your company doing enough?

If people are a company's key to gaining competitive advantage, then this is the area where an employer brand strategy should be looking to generate the most traction.

To place the sole responsibility for your employer brand strategy with one department, be that HR or Marketing makes no sense at all. This is a shared responsibility and so needs a shared involvement. How many CFO's or COO do you know that have involvement in their company's employer brand strategy? Then ask why it is…

Hiring Managers Say The Craziest Things – Okay, Everything!

Since 1981, I have worked with over 3000 hiring managers across the United States.  Most of whom have never been trained how to interview.  If they haven’t been taught how to interview, they certainly have not been taught how to select the best fit.  Therefore, they bring their own unique interview techniques and questions to the interview party.  Of course, the candidates bring their own special treats to the interviewing party; and I will share some of those also.

Do You Confuse “Sourcing” with “Recruiting?”

“I recruit using Dice.” “I recruit using social media.”  “I recruit using LinkedIn.”  “What is the best job board to recruit Sales (or IT or Marketing or Finance, etc) candidates?”  These are all questions I have seen repeatedly in recruitment Yahoo! Groups or in LinkedIn Groups.

Economic Sage Wisdom For The Ages

It goes without saying - every move you make has the potential to shape your career for years to come.  From time to time, when you are not looking for a new role - well curious folks come knocking on the door and try to lure you away.  In these economic times, many of us have not had that happen for some time and perhaps, we go from place to place, company to company seeking a haven from the economic storm brewing all around us, even facing a unique opportunity or two, where the money may…

Companies Recruiting College Grads May Need to Increase Their Budgets

I was recently talking with a friend of mine whose son is starting his sophomore year in college and just changed his major to Petroleum Engineering.  When she asked her son why he chose that major he informed her that is has the highest starting salary potential of any job for college graduates.  He obviously did his research as you will see… Continue
