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

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

There is something almost archaic about the term job board. It connotes a dirty tack ridden area with pamphlets adorned across its frayed wooden edges. This is a place where a multitude of companies each place their latest and greatest positions for individuals to cluster around, sneer and glean any piece of vital information that can assist their application.
It’s almost scandalous just how long the term job board has been around. Why do we accept this term? The pace of…Continue
Cover letters can be a great way to get your foot in the door at a company that you want to work for.

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.

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.
In a story on Yahoo’s career articles…Continue
