Hooey. If you aren't familiar with this term, it's a nicer and friendlier way of calling "BS" on something or someone. It's when your words and your actions don't line up and your hypocrisy has been exposed. Such is the case with Recruiters. I am calling "hooey" on you today.
I have been in recruiting for around 10 years. During that time, I have interviewed and hired countless…Continue
There are fewer things in this world that irritate me more than when someone can’t follow simple directions. For example, fill out the application (at the time after we’ve scheduled an interview of course – I wouldn’t want to enrage any of the candidate experience gods by asking for legal paperwork too early on when I should be offering a Frappa Mocha Someshit so that I can make…Continue
Job candidates jump through the hoops that companies and recruiters set up for them. Some have decided that they may only get one shot at gaining all of the information possible from a candidate and placed lots and lots of hoops at the application portion of the process. They go online to apply for the job, and in some cases, they stay involved in that application process for hours - uploading a…Continue
The bad news: applying and interviewing for jobs is just as cumbersome as ever.
The ugly news: many employers must…Continue
Check out iCIMS' latest blog post from iCIMS blogger Holly DeMuro.
Any employee who has gone through the dramatic economic downturn that began in 2008 knows, for the last few years, the mantra has been, “keep your head down, keep working, and be glad you have a job.” During this period, employers instituted round after round of layoffs and the remaining employees continued to absorb more work…Continue
During the pursuit of great candidates, ask yourself these questions:
Do candidates know you? Do they like you? Do you stay in regular contact with your candidates even if they don’t get the job? Do they come to you and a knowledgeable resource when it comes to employment? …

This week I took my youngest daughter to see Disney's latest, "Saving Mr. Banks." Truth be told, she wanted to see it far more than I did; I didn't expect to glean much from it at all. I'm pleased to report I was wrong. You might not think that a movie about the making of another movie, Mary Poppins,…Continue
Here’s some advice: Burn them. Seriously. Who cares? That person made a connection with you, your company, and your brand; but none of that matters now. You…Continue
You can fail at hiring. Maybe you’re even failing now.
“But Jenn,” you say, “I still manage to hire people. How can I be failing?”
You can be scoring a failing hiring grade and still do just enough to fill…Continue
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…Continue
Branding is important and we all know that. A strong brand can make a company, and a weak brand can break it. Employer branding is even more important and I’ve mentioned why several times – a good employer branding takes an organization’s company culture, values, and story and makes it part of the overall brand. Moreover, employer branding is meant to directly impact an…Continue
Today, I’ll be at the #DICETRU event in Boston talking about the candidate experience. It should be a tremendous event with great practitioners and thought leaders. My discussion will be on the whole gamut of the candidate experience and hope the discussion will take a mind of it’s own towards the needs and thoughts of the audience. As everyone knows, it…Continue
The role of a job recruiter can certainly be a difficult one. It takes a keen eye and a lot of know-how to find the perfect candidate for a position. Add "relocation required" to the job description, and the task gets even harder. It's difficult enough finding someone who has all of the right qualifications, let alone someone who is willing to move.

Most employment experts agree that accounting is one of the few professions expected to be "safe" over the next decade, with plenty of opportunities, even as much of the job market remains difficult for white-collar workers. Remaining competitive, however, is more important for accountants than perhaps anyone else, as the wealth of opportunities will draw top candidates with whom you'll have to compete.
The single best way to to do this is to master software applications that you'll…Continue

One of the hardest things a recruiter can do is convince a client that they can't handle their own accounting in house. Business owners often want to handle their own books because they either don't trust an employee to count their beans or they feel like it's a place where they can save money. While this isn't usually the case, hiring a bad accountant is easy. Hiring a good one, however, requires some finesse.
Follow this guide to recruiting the best accountant for the…Continue

This year I had the absolute privilege to help The Candidate Experience Awards as a member of the CandE Council. It’s been 3 years now and as someone who has followed this program since inception, it’s absolutely tremendous to see how much it’s grown in such a short time (credit is due to founders…Continue
