I recently attended a HR and recruitment forum and listened to speaker, Carron Hinton , talk about Change management. I've never really though about this topic before and as I listened it dawned on me that I really wished I had.
Carron talked about the differences between Operational Management and Change or Project management. It occurred to me that the normal management style of my customers (recruitment agency managers) is that all about Operations management and nothing to do… Continue

Recruitment is an information business. Your ability to recruit is based solely on who and what you know, this is the commodity you sell. But in todays information age, where information is so plentiful, it is not enough simply to be in possession of information. To make money in recruitment you require the ability to extract value from the vast quantity of information that is available to you.
Super Star recruiters do not have to work harder than average. They do not have… Continue

A long time ago – say, in the early 1990s – employers had a very good
idea where their job candidates originated. Most came from ‘word of
mouth’ and the rest via newspaper ads.
Not so today. In a world
where candidates can discover jobs via Twitter, job

Let’s say you’re a small company with limited resources, time and budget.
You publish a job ad for an open position in your company.
Within 24 hours you are submerged by hundreds of applications.
You simply do not have the time to go through all the resumes.
How do you deal with that ? What’s your strategy ?

As the popular commercial reminds us, there seems to be an app for just about everything these days. For the past year or so, I’ve noticed a new category of online apps gaining visibility: online resume creators. Google search “resume builder” and you’ll find dozens of tools, some free some not. Oh, and you’ll come across plenty of humans hocking their “expert” resume writing skills, many for a fee.
So what gives with these online resume builders? Well, I decided to see for myself.… Continue

When online news articles and technology bloggers began proclaiming sometime in 2008 that Twitter would become the AP newswire of the future, I literally laughed out loud. Dismissing it as techno-hype, I was completely certain that the American news reporting icon would continue to command ownership of top newspaper headlines and web pages from here to evermore. I also pondered that the majority of intelligent and web-savvy global workforce participants would simply not be all that keen on… Continue

Having spent the last nine months building our Recruiting CRM application to interface with many different systems I've been given the unique opportunity to look inside many different HR and recruiting software applications commercially available on the market. I've also had the chance to respond to many RFP's, RFI's, and product bake-offs with competitors. I'm continually blown away at how poorly designed many of these applications are from a users perspective (but not entirely surprised given… Continue

I've seen a lot of questions recently about selecting an ATS and thought I would share an article I wrote a few years ago (2003, I believe) since much is still relevant - and what's not is good for a nostalgic chuckle. Unfortunately, it may also reveal how little has changed with ATS technology. The focus was on employment branding but I always saw this as being intricately linked to the ATS - selection and deployment. When this was written I was heading up employment initiatives and college… Continue
