In a previous post, Corporate Recruiters List Top Three Soft Skills, had highlighted the fact that communication is a hot job skill in high demand. If you can communicate well, you can instantly stand-out in the crowd of applicants.
Since you cannot be everywhere, speaking,…Continue

Dear Hiring Manager,
So, just to make sure I clearly understand you.
Some things in life are so obvious, we just can’t see them. And it shocks me how few people understand what the important part of ‘social media’ or ‘social networking’ actually is.
The exciting aspect of the boom in social technologies is not the technology at all, (Sorry geeks). It’s the ‘social’ part.
And the core rules of socialising online are the same as socialising face-to-face.
Pandering flattery offline can be easily detected, and only…Continue

Employee coaching is on the rise, according to a recent study by Bersin & Associates. Business results (defined as a combination of market share, costs and financial performance) were 21 percent higher for companies whose executive leadership embraced coaching and actively coached others. When businesses reported “excellent cultural support for coaching”, employee results (a combination of employee productivity, engagement and customer satisfaction) were 39 percent stronger.

10 things to do with your body in an important meeting
(interview, first date, flat mate interview, meeting the future in-laws for the first time or whenever)
1. Shake hands after the interviewer has offered theirs to you. This implies deference
Recruiting and sales; or Sales and recruiting. Which comes first and which is more important? Whether we wish to admit it, both are part of the very same industry, just at differing degrees on the scale. Just because you are a great recruiter doesn't mean you'll have a long career as a salesperson and the same can be said about Sales People potentially not doing well recruiting others. If you happen to be one of those rare few that can do both, and do them well--Congratulations!
How many times have you been asked this question? How many times have you asked…Continue

The five-year-olds on the baseball field deserve better. At least that’s what I told myself as I walked off the field last night. The game ended in a tie, of course, as all games at this age do given we don’t count outs and runs, but my feeling of failure last night as a head coach had nothing to do with the game result. Looking back on the game the kids had fun, we avoided any significant injuries, the players generally understood where to be and what to do, and the flow of…Continue
I am a recovering fear based recruiter! My diagnosis came during a 2-hour presentation (six months ago) which was intended to shed light on the fact that the bulk of people’s decisions are made in or out of fear and I am now working to help others realize the pain that one lives with when they are in a constant state of fear too. Maybe I should back up and…Continue
