The Best Person For The Job

In practically all cases, an organization strives to identify and select the best person for the job.

Ads for open positions are overflowing with lists of requirements for experience and education in an effort to prevent those that don’t meet stated criteria from applying. Nevertheless, various statistics reveal the low ratio of qualified applicants versus immense volumes of unqualified…

Throw ‘em into the Lion’s Den or Coddle Them?

The age-old debate about onboarding new or newly transitioned employees. Is the sink or swim method best, or should you hold their hand through the learning process? We aren’t all natural-born leaders and we don’t always know which…

Should You Pass Up a Candidate Just Because of His/Her Online Reputation?

Everything we do online matters. This has always been true, but it's never been as important as it is now. What makes this feel almost patently unfair is that, in spite of our actions mattering more now, we actually have less control over how we are perceived online. Thanks to social media, and a few other factors (not the least among them being Internet trolls), people can say just about anything they want about us online.





What are they saying about you today?…

So,this is recruiting now and we are ok with it?

Oh, did this did just happen to me?

Recently I was called by a recruiting agency recruiter.  The person, from Manpower, called me about a position that he was looking to fill for an engineering/technical recruiter.  I am not shocked by this as that is what we do for a living.  However what did shock me was the pedantic way in which the person went about it while leaving a message.  It was almost robotic in its…

Is your boss ruining your career? It’s time to dump the chump!

Recently some good friends and I were enjoying a great bottle of wine over dinner when an interesting discussion arose. “Is your boss ruining your career?” We all unanimously agreed that we had either been in the situation before or were currently in one.

Each of us sitting at the table that night is…

Is it ever OK to bad-mouth a colleague?

Be honest or keep quiet? Image via StreetFly JZ.

Criticising a colleague or ex-colleague during an interview has always been considered a massive no-no in the recruitment world. However, this year has seen the rule being broken numerous times on quite a public scale. From Greg Smith’s infamous resignation letter in the New York Times to the latest resignation letter to go viral in which the …

Think back to your most recent “bad hire.” Remember the time, effWhy Staffing Firms Can Save Your Company Money ort and resources that went into posting the job, screening candidates, interviewing and training.

When interviewers don't shut up

Have you experienced a situation like this at an early-stage interview--you're excited to be there, a bit nervous expecting the difficult questions to be fired at you, but the interviewer is doing 100% the talking?

Then toward the end of the interview, you ask if he wants to ask you any questions, to which…

Bitten by a Zombie (Candidate)

I had taken a hot job order from a new client, you know the golden type that always picks up the phone when you call, responds to e-mails almost immediately, instant feedback on candidates, basically the best case scenario. In my initial sourcing efforts, I found three solid candidates. I set up interviews immediately and received instant feedback with an offer for one of them. I was excited as the candidate they selected was a perfect personality fit, had the required skills, background,…

Funny thing that Road Rage taught me.........

A few days ago there was an article posted on this blog about whether or not it's OK to burn bridges. I guess that's a matter of opinion and circumstance but if my severe Road Rage (Washington DC area traffic) has taught me anything of value, it would be "WHY BOTHER."

So that manager never called you back after the interview and your previous boss was a horror show. Do you think that by airing your experience publicly that no one else is going to show up for an interview with that…

Which bit of "Don't apply for this postion if you ain't got the experience!" do candidates not understand?

I am sure I am not alone in receiving countless completely inappropriate and seemingly randomly sent CVs when advertising for roles - it kinda comes with the territory - but it never fails to amaze me that even when a specific warning that irrelevant and inappropriate CVs will not get a response is included in the advertisement that so many candidates think it is worthwhile sending you their CV despite the fact they have no suitable experience and in fact, in many cases, simply could not…

How to survive the manager from hell

Have you ever had one of "those" managers? You know the type I mean "DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO"! The type of manager who thinks that people perform better under a fear based regime, the type of manager who thinks their employees are sub-standard and to be treated as such; the Manager from Hell (MFH)!
It's probably a good guess we've all been there! I used to work with a manager who thought her job wasn't done if she didn't have at least one staff member in tears a month (ok -…

Why Recruiters Get a Bad Rap (a cautionery tale)

A good friend of mine was laid off of his job of 10 years and is searching for new employment. He has a complete LinkedIn profile with contact info and resume (thanks to me) and is on Monster and CareerBuilder.

 

He got a call last week from a local recruiter at a niche staffing firm. On the phone the recruiter told him he had a ‘couple’ of jobs for him, and they arranged to meet. My friend has an interim job so he had to arrange time off to meet this…

Removing Recruiting's Wrong Reputation

Let’s face it. Buying a used car at a lot has to be one of the worst thought of experiences in anyone’s existence. The salesperson is just after that big commission and fast talks you about any car your eye lands on even if said car looks like it went down with the Titanic. Well, you might…
