Sourcing is like an Onion…you must peel it back

digital onion

We live in a world of automation.  We want to speed things up.  Or at least that’s what we want when we’re doing mundane things that are wasting our time.  It comes down to 2 things: FRUSTRATE or AUTOMATE.  FRUSTRATE: sitting in traffic going 3 MPH and watching squirrels walk faster than you.  AUTOMATE: adding a 360-degree jet-propulsion system to your car and flying over everyone.  FRUSTRATE: using a sourcing method that is cool…but takes too many steps for it to be…

How to Source without Saying a Word


Let’s face it. Some people just don’t want attention. It’s hard to believe that. Especially in this over-hyped, over-socialized, and over-advertised world we live in.  But there are candidates on Linkedin, Twitter, websites, and job boards who don’t feel the need to cram tons of information about their experience in one place.

Other engineers do not put certain words on their resume…

Baby Steps in HR Technology: #HRTech Definitions

To Source, or Not to Source...


"To Source, or not to Source...that is the question:

Whether 'tis Nobler for recruiters and sourcers to suffer

The Postings and Campaigns of outrageous Recruitment life cycles,

Or to take up Sourcing against a sea of difficult Reqs,

And by sourcing fill them: to close, to fill

No more; and by close, to say we hire"

So I may have altered the soliloquy from Hamlet…

Big Data....Big Deal??? - Sourcing Data Services


Funny Anchorman jokes aside, the reason for the picture here is because so many people talk about Big Data to the point that it's a little over-used. So why am I talking about it? Well, because technology corporations still need engineers who are constantly solving data aggregation issues that are ever increasing. And because of this, sourcers and recruiters need to understand what to…

Why Recruiters Need to Step Up their Sourcing Game

The Problem

So this is something that I think (and hope) everyone should be doing in their power to accept, change, and implement. The landscape of recruiting today is light-years removed from the free-wheelin' early 90's, where many "old school" recruiters could take on the world with their phone, a rolodex, and maybe a Hotjobs account (with an accompanying action figure).

That time has passed, if it ever should have even…

Recruiting a Candidate with Ruby (not slippers)


These days, everybody is looking for candidates with Ruby programming experience.  But if you are a Recruiter or Sourcer who doesn't understand what Ruby is and the many different places it can be used, you might end up selling the wrong job to the wrong person.  You also may ask the wrong questions about the things that the candidate will be working on in their job.  As a recruiter, nothing is worse that not understanding the job you are recruiting for.  The days of "I am a…

Around December 2012 this scrappy article appeared on and caused a viral stir in recruiting forums, including this one..... - it's premise?  Technology would cause recruiters to go the way of the dinosaur.  Ahh - but you see the author Lior Shamir had interesting points, albeit to me a bit misguided.  What he did get…
