Last week, I came across an article from Tech Cocktail which gave some great advice on how to hire top talent for your startup. Oftentimes, startups are overlooked in the topic of recruitment; a fact that I find to be pretty misleading when it comes to highlighting both the importance of this issue, and the reality of how…Continue

A friend of mine forwarded me this article from Yahoo on McDonald's. It's interesting because he said "check out this video from Micky D's. I guess we have to stop saying would you like fries with that and ask if they want an award for cracking eggs...."
Funny thing is that he is unemployed.... Even funnier the people in the video…Continue

Every time a hire is made successfully, it’s a combination of the right opportunity at the right time for both the candidate and the organization.

When both the candidate’s and organization’s needs match up, it’s a glorious thing. However, there are many instances in which the timing doesn’t meet up and…Continue

In the current age, when we don’t know the answer to a question, we tend to turn to our good friend Google for the answer. In 2011 alone, Google performed a total of 1,722,071,000,000 searches – that’s an average of 4,717,000,000 searches per day! Needless to say, Google will be there to provide you with an answer to your question, but none of those 1,722,071,000,000 queries will tell you which candidate is the best fit for YOUR company. In fact, it might even provide an answer that is…Continue
Here’s a scenario that happens way too often. A company buys a brand-new shiny piece of software that they are really excited about all the functionality and think will have a great impact on their organization. They implement it with their providers help and then a few months later it’s sitting their available but most of the product goes unused.
Does this sound familiar? No matter if you are large or small this has probably happened at a company you’ve worked for and may be…Continue

Recruiting is not just a quality game but it’s a numbers game as well. For any large to medium size organization recruiting is a continuous cycle of engaging and trying to find that right candidate for an open position.
Unless you have a dedicated sourcing team that proactively goes to find candidates that fit your organization, you are most likely relying on a recruitment advertising strategy of trying to reach the right candidates. With these initiatives, you are really…Continue

If you have been around the HR & Recruiting blogosphere long enough (or been to enough conference booths) you’ve probably heard about Talent Networks or Talent Communities. Both were born out of the concept that every recruitment or sourcing campaign you run should not only be about finding applicants for a specific job but also be about building a collection of talent that you can engage with and leverage when recruiting for future positions. And while both aim to achieve this same…Continue
