"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…Continue

This year I had the absolute privilege to help The Candidate Experience Awards as a member of the CandE Council. It’s been 3 years now and as someone who has followed this program since inception, it’s absolutely tremendous to see how much it’s grown in such a short time (credit is due to founders…Continue

SEO Alert: This is an #HREvolution preview post, but since if you haven’t already booked #HREvolution tickets, you're SOL, I wanted to lay out what Ben Eubanks and couldn't cover about Gen Y in 45 minutes during our #HREvolution session Sunday. Hope to see you there, but either way, read on and if you tweet, add #HREvolution to the end. See you in…Continue

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…Continue

So, another year at the HR Technology Conference. It’s the chance to see the newest and greatest cutting edge technologies from vendors that were founded decades ago or ones you've already gone through an RFP with. It goes to show the fact that…Continue
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…Continue

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 ERE.net and caused a viral stir in recruiting forums, including this one.....http://www.ere.net/2012/12/10/recruiters-your-days-are-numbered/ - 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…Continue

Cut them hours. It is survival time
Ever since the beginning of the financial downturn we have seen organizations of all sizes determined to solve the
economic effects of the downturn by cutting headcount. In the process improvement efforts many organizations believe that the way to improve the organization is to cut headcount. The we add to this the…

Millennials come with a few stereotypes. They are said to be lazy, self-centered and flighty. Obviously, generalizations like these don’t tend to hold up. Millennials are entering the workforce in mass. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, today, …Continue
With each recruiting role I’ve taken the world has gotten bigger and bigger. My very first role was hiring delivery drivers in an around my own neighborhood. This week I’m setting up interviews for a guy in Seoul. The times have changed indeed. One of the talented presenters from Talent42 was Kevin Wheeler – hey any guy who’s profile pic appears to have been taken at a winery is ok by me. J I was lucky enough to sit next to Kevin on Day…Continue
I don't know many tech recruiters who don't at least have a grudging appreciation of Dice. Not only was Dice one of the sponsors of Talent42, their new President Shravan Goli gave a presentation on their latest offering, Open Web. I think he said he's been on the job for…Continue

Look at the HR technology trends predicted for this year: cloud,SaaS, HR master data management, analytics. Hello, What about the actual users?
They say that design has to be functional. Many products that look sensational or aesthetically near perfect but lacking in functionality end up not being used. The gadget technology space has been a witness to may beautiful objects that ended up being bought in big numbers initially but dumped soon after because the product…

Upper middle-management and out of a job.
Too set in your ways
Not right for the job
Too old fashion for our hip new company
And too many other things you aren’t allowed to say.
How many really talented people are out there looking (and looking) for work who can’t find a job because the 30 (or 40) something that is in charge of hiring has a pre-conceived notion that the person they are looking for is “younger.” How many automated…Continue
Happy Friday peeps!
I LOVE this video, and your Inbound Recruiter Trainer, wanted to share with you. After you watch it, I can only imagine how you think about how technology (or lack thereof) will affect your recruiting desk.
What is so interesting about technology is I believe it has made it harder for recruiters. IT WILL NOT GET ANY EASIER WITH…Continue

All joking aside, the current state of the recruitment industry is no laughing matter. It is a world lacking any form of entry barrier and as bizarre as something directed by David Lynch himself! HR departments so it seems, were put in place with the sole purpose of fending off hordes of thick skinned recruiter-goblins, whose only…Continue
