I know we have all felt it, and I know we have all ignored it. I am referring to the feeling of a candidate we should just walk away from. We have put in all the work, and put ourselves in a point of no return. … Continue

Leads present an excellent opportunity for corporate recruiters to garner more qualified candidates via their employee referral programs. Permitting employees to do their own initial qualifications and refer names and contact details without resumes opens the door to a wider group of top talent who don’t necessarily have updated CV’s ready and available to submit.
However, many corporate recruiters are hesitant to dive in and forego resumes at the referral stage. Reasons range from… Continue

Let’s face it, when you’re looking for a job, you want it as fast and as easy as you can get it. It can be overwhelming and time-consuming searching for a job. It’s true that you likely won’t land an interview, or job for that matter, without actually applying for job openings (unless they come through… Continue

I recently “googled” my name and found an assortment of results come up that I didn’t even realize were out there and visible to the public. Social media sites, registries I created, and websites that I’ve registered on and long forgotten about. When it comes to job… Continue

Sometimes, the client experience can feel a bit like buying a house. I put forward a great candidate, they do a perfect interview and are offered the job. Client and candidate are happy. At least until someone else comes along with a better offer and lo and behold – that client has been ‘gazumped’ by the lure of a higher salary.
This happened to one of my clients recently, with the candidate turning down a role (despite already having accepted it) for the sake of a few thousand pounds… Continue

The relationship between corporate recruiters and candidates has witnessed a shift in the information available to the two parties. The widening use of the Internet, particularly social media, has opened up access to data on both sides, ushering in an age of transparency and a heightened potential of mutual communication. In other words, candidates are now in a better position to take the initiative and interact with organizations. This means that corporate recruiters have to step up… Continue

With Platforms like LinkedIn and You tube are the days of the traditional CV numbered?
I for one love seeing candidates getting creative when seeking a role. I don’t think this will completely replace the traditional CV but now that many adverts have the apply with LinkedIn button, is it about time the CV evolved into 2012?
With unemployment still at a high in many sectors how can candidates…

I was recently chatting with some HR professionals regarding the age-old question over whether active or passive candidates are better recruits. In my opinion, the recruiters preferring passive won the debate. Their argument was simply a matter of control. Sourcing for passive candidates puts the recruiter in the driver’s seat as they look for candidates with specific experience and/or skill sets.
Obviously there were other reasons why recruiters prefer passive candidates, but this… Continue

We’re all familiar with job postings. At some point you probably spent hours sifting through them to find your next job, so you know the basics. That’s why it’s surprising that so many are dense, boring and bland. It’s like everyone that writes a job posting forgets how our brains work when we’re looking for a job.…
