1 Year Anniversary at New Recruiting Job & 10 Year Wedding Anniversary Parrallels

1 year in to the new Recruiting Staffing role and I have a great deal to be pleased about.  I also have some personal reflections about how I can move the proverbial client satisfaction mountain to even new greater heights. Many times there are things to think on, how to maneuver, and how to find your way.  Recently, I had opportunity to view my latest hiring manager surveys, and it caused me to reflect a bit - what is it that I can do to create "Raving Fans", in the…

The most important aspect of staffing resilience is perhaps the ability to get…

The Elements of a Successful Recruiting Career

It all began almost 9 years ago.  In 2003 at the end of that year just coming into the final leg of my final 2 years journey in college and looking at options in the future, I looked to an incredible option that opened it's doors by taking on an internship for an ADT Security Alarms Dealership - Rhino Security Services.

When In Doubt: Enjoy The Journey

This was the wise advice of an old manager of mine at Solutions Partners a few years back, when the economic circumstances hit close, after my hours were cut when the permanent job orders that were 70% of my employer's business at Solutions Partners became less and less in demand.  It was on a bright and sunny day walking in Los Gatos, with Nathan North who provided such wisdom at the time, and said the economic storm will pass and "When in Doubt: Enjoy the Journey" - I couldn't help but…

Recruiting Greatness - A Look at What is at the Heart of Success in This Business

This is a blog that has been waiting to get out for some time.  There are many definitions about what defines greatness in this day and age - specifically about what makes for recruiting greatness - it is a topic that I find interesting.  There are many definitions that one could look at, but at its fundamental core there is a differentiating factor - is it number of fills, is it ones grasp of boolean or superb negotiation skills, is it the ability to close difficult candidates, is it the…

What Success Really Means

Success. Is it defined by actions? How you treat others? The number of fills you obtain?

A month ago we had the privilege to meet the American Idol from last year Kris Allen at an event I had won tickets to from our local radio station, among the perks were the opportunity to discuss success with Kris Allen and what it meant to him.
