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

ron-burgundy-big-deal

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)

the-wizard-of-oz-ruby-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…

Staffing Comes of Age & The Rise of Recruiting "Purple Squirrel" Finding - Sourcing Ninjas

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…

Finding Work at 60: A Tale of Talent Lost

Upper middle-management and out of a job.

Too qualified,

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…

Do you know the difference between a lawyer and a recruiter? You will always hear from a lawyer! :-)

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…
