I've been a successful technical recruiter for 30+ years. Now that I'm in the twilight of my career I look back on my career and I am so glad I'm almost at the finishline. For the past 10 years I feel more like an admistratrive assistant, rather than a professional recruiter. For those of you who don't remember. Back in the old days you spent most of your time sourcing and recruiting and interfacing directly with the Hiring Managers. You didn't spend half your day tracking internal…

Recruitment and the BP crises: Why technology can get in the way of top talent

This is less of a blog of thought, and more a blog of questions proposed to all of you.

Recently the BP spill occupied front pages around the globe. Yet with all of our intellectual capacity on earth no one fixed the problem. Why?

I know of several engineers and folks with products that could have aided. They tried to get through. They wrote, they sent emails, they made calls to no avail. Then one day a man drove down to Louisiana and…

common sense approach, everyone will have agreed with the statement “We are all

in this together”...................

How to Praise Your Employees

Leadership is often as much about how we make our employees feel as it is what we are able to achieve. However, in many workplaces the drive for higher numbers leaves the people stuff on the sidelines. Inspirational leaders know that when they praise their employees on a regular basis the results will come. Here are some common thoughts I hear in workplaces and some ideas to help you praise your employees more effectively.

Fundamental changes…or tempests in teapots?

People get bored. This is the number one reason that anything ‘new and shiny’ captures our attention. We get frustrated that what we’re doing is, well, kind of repetitive and doesn’t work the way

we imagined it would. Then something new comes along

and we think: Maybe this time things will be different! Maybe

that software will really work. Maybe this really is the

magic bullet

Or, maybe…

Results from the 2010 job board industry survey

A few weeks back I asked you to help with a job board industry survey – and you did! You answered questions about the effect of the recession on your job sites, threats to your business – and your thoughts about the future of the industry. So first and foremost, thanks!

I received 94 completed responses – which gives me considerable confidence in the results. A wide range of job sites participated, ranging in revenues from less than $500,000 to more than $10 million. Each size… Continue

Is your job site positioned to grow?

Doostang just announced that they’ve landed $1.25 million in new funding. That’s not a huge investment compared to the boom years, but it is a signal that our industry may have reached bottom and is beginning to rebound.

So you’ve survived the worst. Now what are you going to do?

Do you have a plan for growth? If not, now is a good time to start – because if you don’t, your competitors will. The job board industry is like any other; you can grow, or you can fade away.… Continue

Village People Unite, but Please NO Chaps at Work!

It has been way too long since my last post on RBC, I miss my village! Village? Let me explain.

This week my company kicked off our annual meeting, discussing 2009 successes and 2010+ plans. One of our main issues (like so many other recruiting firms) is everyone working towards common "team" goals. We are in an individual rewards environment (for the most part), but always chant the mantra of "go team".

The Job Hunt | Old School V.S. New School | Reuling and Associates Recruitment Firm | 630.446.0746

Are there really new rules to the job hunt? If you answered NO then you must not be using social media. The days are gone when simply posting your resume on Monster, e-mailing former colleagues, and surfing company websites for possible openings is enough. These days, if you are truly serious about being hired, you really need to put your iPhone and computer to work. That means getting the word out on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, sending instant job-search updates via… Continue
