The policy in our company is all employee referrals get a phone call, regardless of qualifications, and I follow that policy. Because I am so dedicated to this particular policy, I have come across this most recent employment nightmare.
Let me preface this story by reminding everybody that my voicemail actually says, “Hi this is Ryan… leave your name, phone number, and a brief message and…Continue

I don't know about anyone else out there, but I have not been receiving any quality applications from my job postings. Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily rely on these postings 100% of the time for candidates, but I expect to get a few keepers out of them.
I have been doing my usual database, LinkedIn, referral, etc recruiting with these postings on…Continue

Maybe the shopper couldn’t find the shipping costs, and decided to skip it. Maybe an item was out of stock when they went to checkout, so they left the site feeling disappointed. Perhaps they had a question, but it was too difficult to contact…Continue
Hi guys, welcome to 2012! Now back at the wheel I have a few observations about how candidate sourcing will be this year and a little more energy to express my thoughts.

After servicing 33 years with the Air Force and the past 19 years in the Recruiting and Retention fields, I now find myself employed as a corporate level recruiter for a government contractor. I recruit for various positions on military installations (aircraft mechanics, civil engineers, electrical engineers, etc.) and most of the Hiring Managers want applicants with a military background who have experience in their related fields.
Does anyone know of any employment web sites that…Continue
While employers have long conducted education verification checks on their employment candidates, it appears that increasingly more staffing and recruiting groups are being made responsible for conducting this and other background checks as part of the employment screening process.
Education history, of course, outside of criminal records, is one of the more significant searches. For many positions, education is not just a prerequisite but also vital to employment candidate's…Continue

Cover letters can be a great way to get your foot in the door at a company that you want to work for. A cover letter is usually sent in the body of your email with an attached resume when applying for a job. They tend to be of great importance in this stage of your job search because it highlights your qualifications, skills, and why you would be an asset for the company. Career Columnist Eve Tahmincioglu, says that…Continue

Honestly, if I had a penny for every time I have read about how the job boards are dying I'd have ooh, let me see now, at least one of the Queen's English pounds sterling. And you know what? they are not dying of old age, they are being poisoned into oblivion by the very people who are meant to make them work - the recruiter.
Yes siree, it doesn't take much figuring out. Social media isn't the holy grail these gurus would have you believe it is. Post the same crap as you've been…

That is all.
Okay, a little more. ; )
In the seasonal world, the turn of the calendar from December to January acts as the green light of a NASCAR race. Everyone truly interested in working summer jobs in great places gets on-line and starts applying. As employers, it's both a wonderful time and a stressful time as your in-box just tripled in size. I say embrace it and work the applications to the best of your…Continue

This week I was planning to post the continuation of last week’s article about the pros and cons of hiring inside referrals. But a story I just read piqued my interest, sending me down memory lane to discover some truths about some ugly habits and some even uglier recruiting tactics that hopefully most candidates won’t have to endure.
