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…

What's the Unemployment Rate for the Candidates YOU Place?

When it comes to recessions, recruiters have long pointed out that the unemployment rate for the people they place is traditionally lower than the unemployment rate for the people they don’t place.

And recent statistics appear to validate that point.

According to those numbers, which were recently published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, those with a college degree are enjoying more of a recovery (i.e., landing…

Recruiting Technology Can Be Les Miserables

With apologies for my miss-use of the French word form, a lot of the recruiting technology that is out there today really is “Les Misérables”. If Fantine was a recruiter and left alone, unemployed and destitute – I could…

A Lean Start Up Holiday for Recruiting Entrepreneur?

OK, I have been buried up to (and over) my head for the last couple of months getting our new product ready for development. I finally looked up from my desk and realized it was almost Christmas and I am way behind. Since we have been following the basic principles of the Lean Start Up I have visions of MVP’s dancing…

5 Things That Will Change Recruiting

When people talk about HR trends they tend to look at what we do today and discuss ways it can be done better in the future. Applications and tools for recruiting, training, on-boarding, etc. are being developed at dizzying rates. Problem is – these new HR innovations are going to have a short half life.

Another way to look at HR trends is to look at the way business is changing.

The changes in technology, employee motivation, globalism, and resource mobility, just to name a…

Yoga Poses for the Angry Recruiter

Recruiting can be stressful. You try so hard to find the perfect candidate and sometimes it seems like all the stars are aligned against you. To help with this problem, I have come up with some yoga poses to be used for some of those more stressful moments.

Down Dog: This pose is used when that candidate you had high hopes for totally pisses-off the President of the company by saying something really stupid. The pose is to be executed at…

Big Data Is Big Deal for HR

After the movie Moneyball came out there were lots of blog posts about how Moneyball had lessons for HR. Essentially this was a Big Data argument. The essence of what the Moneyball process was all about was taking vast amounts of information about your people and your potential recruits and applying data analytics to see that information from new angles. The new angles allowed them to see productivity and efficiency differently than conventional wisdom had always said it should be…

And Why Should We Ban the Resume: The Three C's of Career Arc

Over the course of several years – be it 10 or 40 – you leave a wake behind you that represents the impact you've made. Recruiters traditionally relied on your resume to tell them about your career arc, but today a lot is being written about how your electronic footprint may be a better, more complete representation of your professional mark.

I have fully embraced social media as a grand, open marketplace of resource communication, coordination and exchange. I saw early on that this…

The New Employee: A New HR Dynamic

In several blog posts over the last year or so I have referred to “The New Employee Economy.” So what is it? In a nutshell – it is the future.

Anybody over the age of 35 has grown up in a world where they mostly understand work as a commitment to some organization or company that lasts for 8 to 10 years (maybe more) and you move on one or two more times before you retire. The company takes care of your insurance (increasingly less so) provides you with a career path, some on-the-job…

Presidential Debate Misses the Employment Point

The Presidential Debates are almost over. I wish they would talk more about how exciting and dynamic the new employee economy can be. I wish they would tell us what they are going to do to make sure we have an economy where individuals can thrive (as opposed to stale old structures). Sure there are jobs be created again in manufacturing - but that is just plugging holes. 

They will talk back and forth about a myriad of ideas. And certainly they will talk about jobs. They will talk…

I Tweet Therefore I Hired

In a world where seemingly everyone has gotten involved in Social Media (still hate that term), is it odd when you run across someone who is not? I am not talking about someone in their 80s, but someone in today’s work-a-day world. Certainly there are many people who do not feel they have time, or who may feel that their personal involvement in social or professional networks adds little value to either their professional standing or their company’s performance. But isn't this a dying breed?…

Recruiter Poll: 26% of Clients 'Not Educated at All'

Educating clients about current conditions in the hiring market seems like a never-ending job for some recruiters.

But how many recruiters would that be?  And how much do these recruiters feel that they need to educate their clients?

We all know that when companies aren’t properly educated about market conditions, placements don’t happen.  That’s because those same companies lose out on talented candidates for any number…

Top Jobs for the Near and Distant Future

The great Yogi Berra once quipped, “The future ain't what it used to be.” The legendary New York Yankees player and manager tapped into the uncertainty most of us have about the future. But in the midst of a depressed economy and an ever-changing global marketplace, you don’t have the luxury of sitting back and waiting for the future to come to you. You need to carefully map out your career by studying trends to ensure you devote your education and training to the careers of the future and…
