As a Talent Acquisition professional, I am acutely aware that career fairs are a beacon of Top Talent. However, the career fair is the “grand finale;” there is a magnitude of preparation required to run a successful exhibit.

I was recently chatting with some HR professionals regarding the age-old question over whether active or passive candidates are better recruits. In my opinion, the recruiters preferring passive won the debate. Their argument was simply a matter of control. Sourcing for passive candidates puts the recruiter in the driver’s seat as they look for candidates with specific experience and/or skill sets.
Obviously there were other reasons why recruiters prefer passive candidates, but this… Continue

To find something you are passionate about is a gift.
To find something that grants you fulfillment and reward is simply priceless.
There are researchers and scientists dedicating their lives for the opportunity to find cures and promote a better state of living. Doctors and nurses comforting the bodies and souls and extending life so that we may see our grandchildren grow and smile. Teachers who see reward every day in the glow of a child’s eye when they realize they have made a… Continue

Now that I've written a few blogs, I get contacted rather regularly about some of my more popular articles. Its rewarding to think people actually read them and find that it helps them in some way. That's cool! Recently, a recruiter asked me if I had any blogs or tips on business development. I promptly answered no but thanks. This is an important topic and it certainly should be discussed. So lets discuss some meat and potatoes of our business. How do we land our customers? How do… Continue

Each day I speak with recruiters about Social Media who shares their enthusiasm about using this channel for sourcing. The next question is – how soon they should expect to get profiles and where all they can post the jobs. Social Media is being viewed as a next best thing in recruitment as well as a “magic wand” which will produce profiles from thin air!
There is a definite wave about “Social Recruiting” in the air which needs a proper understanding, strategy and implication rather… Continue

Astute employers observe how changes in the professional labor market can affect their businesses. They take the time to define carefully what kind of employee they need, now and in the future. They avoid legal pitfalls that plague other employers.
They use all the hiring strategies available, formal and informal, to increase their chances for hiring the best workers, while reducing the risk of committing to inferior workers. They use the hiring process itself to begin the integration… Continue

An interesting topic I have been wrangling recently is the convergence of Corporate Social Media and Corporate Social Recruiting. While the two seem to align perfectly with each other, they are proving more and more difficult to sync up. One would think, at least this one person, that social recruiting and social media have the same end goal in mind, but the problem is aligning the social strategy to new talent and aligning the social strategy to new clients is very different. This can lead… Continue

First, let me explain that I spent several years earning my chops as an agency recruiter at some really small shops. This meant I was always fighting an uphill battle against the big boys in the space that had name recognition, a volume over margin focus, and huge databases. I was able to parlay that experience with a Masters Degree in Human Resource Development in order to switch over to the dark side of corporate recruiting and HR. What I have learned in making this switch has been… Continue
