Further to our earlier blog titled The Brilliant CV which outlined the basic requirements for a great CV, there are a couple of further useful observations which are worth sharing with all prospective candidates. Despite various arguments within the recruitment community that the CV is on the way out, it is still of utmost importance and although it can be embellished with great tools such as…Continue

What has become the norm in the recruiting industry is that social recruiting dominates the headlines. I have to ask, why shouldn't it? The two biggest names in social media are LinkedIn and Facebook. LinkedIn just concluded its' very successful LinkedIn Talent Connect 2011 and The Recruiting Innovation Summit was…Continue

I missed last week's Grandma's Chicken Soup due to the fact that I have a ton of work and had a number of great meetings with clients and prospects. Something had to give. I have gained a tremendous amount of respect for my colleagues who can blog on a regular basis and keep a day job.
That being said, there is a lot of action occurring in the talent acquisition/recruiting space right…Continue

LinkedIn received a lot of national publicity last week while hosting a Town Meeting with President Barack Obama. That is a PR coup for LinkedIn, regardless of how you feel about the President's jobs package that he is promoting across the United States. Do I think a government jobs package will help boost job growth in the US? …Continue

Sorry I missed you guys last week. I took a little vacation from Grandma's Chicken Soup, but I am here this week with an extra serving of online recruitment headlines from the past two weeks.
I know a lot of HR/Recruiting professionals are on vacation in August and why not? We all need a break some time. But, September is upon us and the…Continue
Yesterday I saw a tweet from @greg_savage referencing his blog post about HR and Internal Recruiters needing to lift their game. There were some decent points, some of which I've talked about in other posts. I actually think that some of Greg's observations are also true of agency recruiters too! It's also important to realise there is a difference between an HR…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

What do the money managers on Wall Street know about the job boards that HR and Recruiting executives don't know? The folks on Wall Street have questions about the long term growth and viability of the job board business. The stock price after a strong quarter is an indication of their concerns. They do not seem concerned about the future growth prospects of innovative organizations like…Continue

I never thought I’d be a corporate recruiter. Well, if we go back far enough I never thought I’d be a recruiter. In fact, I don’t know a single recruiter who set out to BE a recruiter, on purpose. We all seemed to kind of fall into it, but I digress.
I started out as many do, in an agency. Actually my first experience with an agency was covering the front desk at a recruiting firm that rhymes with Blobert Blaf. I remember the staffing managers literally…Continue
