Here’s a news flash – finding top IT talent is becoming increasingly difficult as budgets loosen up and employers are desperate to fill positions requiring high demand skills. The problem seems to be that there are more jobs (believe it or not) than qualified candidates (who are actively looking for a career change).
Finding top talent can be a bit challenging in today’s market, but that’s what IT recruitment agencies like…

It is more obvious than ever that recruiting teams have to diversify their recruitment marketing efforts. Every person I speak with has an egg timer (no pun intended) on their job board contract. Will they swear off job boards completely? Universally, they will spend less. The smart money is moving to digital recruiting through targeted advertising and social…Continue

It is more obvious than ever that recruiting teams have to diversify their recruitment marketing efforts. Every person I talk to has an egg timer (no pun intended) on their job board contract. Will they swear off job boards completely? Maybe, maybe not. Universally, they will spend less. One big board instead of two. A handful of niche boards not dozens. The smart money is moving to LinkedIn and Facebook.…Continue

It's time recruiters fully understand the service they are offering their clients. Many of us are working on a Contingency basis (ie: only being paid for a successful placement, irrespective of who is put forward for the position); as we think this is what the client wants - in reality a contingency based payment is really only favoured if you are putting forward 1 candidate, if you are working for the candidates best interest.

Last week was an exciting week in our industry. LinkedIn now has a market cap of approximately 600 times its annual earnings. Expectations are lofty. But, as I have said before, LinkedIn is not the only game in town.

What a way to end a weekend...and on to recruitment news.
We are in the midst of a transition period in recruiting and recruitment advertising. Newspaper advertising once dominated how people searched for a job. Then the big job boards supplanted newspapers as the destination of choice for job-seekers looking for new opportunities. Things are changing again.…Continue

I recently read this very interesting post (via twitter) about an age old issue that continues to pop its awkward head above the parapet in the world of recruitment. The double submission - when two agencies submit the same candidate to the same job vacancy (and the subsequent squabbling over ownership that inevitably ensues).
How did we make eEmpACT software even more user-friendly for our nationwide network of staffing agency clients? By making it mobile!
In October, we introduced our latest staffing software upgrade. Version 16 of our eEmpACT staffing software now features iPhone and iPad integration, allowing new mobile capabilities. Recruiters can access every aspect of their eEmpACT v16 systems — performing candidate searches, updating vacancies and accessing profiles — while on the move.

Recruitment is a fantastic industry to be in! In general recruiters love dealing with a variety of people, juggling different needs from different candidate and different employers and matching candidates with employers (both from a job description perspective and also from a personality/environment perspective).
Many recruiters started as professionals in another field, whilst just as many came out of Uni with an HR or similar degree and decided helping people find their…Continue

Years and years ago, my first agency recruiting job was with Source Services Corporation now known as Kforce. My first week there they sent me to training in Dallas where we spent a couple of days learning what the experts thought we should know. I remember quite a few things from those days but one thing struck me as strange. The old war horse recruiter, he described himself that way, said that customers don't do business with the company. They do business with the…Continue

Competition is fierce because the higher the qualifications, the fewer the candidates. The stakes are higher and the rewards are sweeter. But how can you ensure that your…Continue
