Interesting thoughts after meeting several candidates in person this week in Tokyo. Though its officially Holidays this week in Japan - Obon Yasumi, when people go back to their hometowns to pay respect to their ancestors that have passed - I own my own boutique company with staff around the Globe who are working normal hours so no break for me.
Several candidates admitted to accessing Facebook on a daily basis, more…Continue

A few months ago, a job seeker told me that she wished she could show a potential employer what she was capable of during the interview process. The job seeker stated that employers should allow candidates (who are qualified, pre-screened, and in the final running for the position) to perform the actual job for a week…Continue
Every time a hire is made successfully, it’s a combination of the right opportunity at the right time for both the candidate and the organization. A candidate is at the right place to move to the next step in their career and the organization offers an opportunity that meets the thresholds that the candidate desires.
When both the candidate’s and organization’s needs match up, it’s a glorious thing. However, there are many instances in which the timing doesn’t meet up and…Continue

The evolution of the Career Site has occurred rapidly over the last decade. Career Sites are no longer (or should no longer) be static job pages linked together by a single homepage but really act as your recruiting hub for engaging and interfacing with candidates about your company and employment opportunities.
Candidates no longer just want a job search for open positions (although that’s a necessity) but they want to learn about your company and culture so they can make an…Continue

Some months ago, I was phone screened for a Senior Recruiter role with a Fortune 500 retail company. During the phone screening, which lasted 75 minutes, I talked for roughly 10-12 minutes. Instead of digging deeper into the responsibilities of the role I applied for, the Recruiter spent most of…Continue

Having cold feet can make our entire body feel chilly. In order to alleviate this, we put on socks or boots to warm up. Our feet are the base, the foundation to our body, our entire motion of walking is based on them. If we have an injury, we limp along, not meeting our full potential. This can be compared to how you structure your candidate experience and can affect the rest of your interactions with them.
How this applies to your workflow.
It’s important that…
Recruiting is not just a quality game but it’s a numbers game as well. For any large to medium size organization recruiting is a continuous cycle of engaging and trying to find that right candidate for an open position.
Unless you have a dedicated sourcing team that proactively goes to find candidates that fit your organization, you are most likely relying on a recruitment advertising strategy of trying to reach the right candidates. With these initiatives, you are really…Continue

Think back to your most recent “bad hire.” Remember the time, eff ort and resources that went into posting the job, screening candidates, interviewing and training. And then there was the trial period. Like most companies, you’ve gone through the discomfort a bad hire can bring. By the time you cut your losses, this preventable mistake will have cost you and your company over $40,000, and in some cases even $200,000, when valuable customers get caught in the flack.…Continue
I’ve been writing a lot on about the candidate experience over the past several weeks and one question I’ve been getting a good deal is “where should I start?” I tend to throw out a lot of things you can do to improve about the candidate experience and realize that it would be helpful to focus on a few that I think are some of the most important.
And while I think…Continue

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of traveling down to New Orleans for this year’s Jazz Fest. It was my first time down on the Bayou and it exceeded even my loftiest expectations. The people were friendly and food was excellent but most importantly the music was downright incredible. The best of which was a concert I saw at the famous Tipitinas by a band named Galactic (which was probably the best concert I’ve ever been to.) I’ve…Continue
