Here we go… another horrible example of the type of cold call/emails some recruiters are sending.
I’ve never heard of the recruiter that sent this - who according to their LI profile, has been an agency recruiter since 2008 and has a whopping 36 connections. I don’t recall having any prior interactions with their agency and don’t know how they have my email address. What I do know is this a one of the lamest messages I’ve seen in quite a while.
The email… Continue

I don't believe that so many employers are taking to the online streets of Facebook for pre-employment screening. I think they might be making it up just to look hip or as part of some kind of…

We all have our opening lines when we make a cold call....they may be a simple "hello", "how are you?" or "Mr./Ms./Mrs. XYZ, i currently have an opportunity for you which i think would be of your liking!! "
This simple "Hello!!" 'MAY' change the course of the conversation...whether the candidate would feel interested or he/she might just say that he/she is currently in a meeting and to call back some other time!! The tone of the "Hello!" might also affect the conversation and… Continue

I am a big fan of METRICS. Year after year, they are the best way to gauge your performance & effort, and the ROI accompanying your output. Some recruiters drill down to "dollars per dial" (CASH-IN / CALLS) to measure how they are doing compared to years past. Continue

I recently received the following email from a reader and asked them if I could post their question as this is a popular frustration with HR and would probably help. When do recruiters call back? With their permission, I am reposting a condensed version below.
For about a month now, I've been down to the finish line at conglomerate, Company X.

This is exactly what goes through the mind of a passive job seeker when the Headhunter calls to make him/her aware the exciting job opportunity of a lifetime. Actually this is a defensive reaction whenever anyone truly believes that he/she is being sold. It could be a product, a service or even their time. But they sincerely believe that they don’t have a need especially for something that will end up costing them something of value they really don’t want to part with.
Can you… Continue

Whatever you do in the recruitment space it's likely that a significant part of your day is spent on the phone (or should be). With the incredible technological advances we've all seen over the last 20 years, the phone remains our lifeline. And still I know many people who suffer from call reluctance. They can always justify why they should spend their time doing something else but the bottom line is that they are scared to pick up the phone and call. Following are a few… Continue
