Sourcing and Recruiting Passive Candidates

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…

5 Top Tips for Active Listening - Hearing what people are really saying

In our house, listening is the number one point of contention currently. It seems that our 5 year old son is able to turn his hearing on and off like a switch.
