The girl represents in imagination what she strong

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,…

It's your career - get the job you really want without leaving the old one

I was a recruiter for a very long time, actually longer than I would like to mention (okay 16 years) and in that time, and ever since, I am asked by people to help them in their careers.

I’m asked to look at CVs, help with interview preparation, give general advice, and refer recruitment consultants. I am used…

Massage your client's ‘social ego’ for a happy ending

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…

Employee Coaching: 4 Commitments

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.

16 Things To Do For Successful Interviewing

  1. Research the company, the leadership, the industry, the competition, your competition. This is a never ending task, not a one time event. Put at least one additional set of eyes on this. It’sthat important.
  2. Create an agenda. It’s really a game plan.
  3. Prepare your questions.
  4. Let the interviewer do most of the talking. This involves skillful means.
  5. Be subtle and skillful in how you handle questions and…

New Negotiator: An Introduction

As a new member, this post is intended as an introduction.

At New Negotiator, my work is all about preparation. It accounts for 80% of what I do with a candidate.

Preparation begins well before the initial interview with an introduction to the New Negotiator method, its rules, and how the various pieces of the system fit together. 

For most candidates this introduction only serves to confuse them. It’s in the actual working of…

The Customer is NOT Always Right!!

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!

Do You Deserve Better Coaching?

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…

Are you a fear-based recruiter?

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…

Paid Forward NLP Style...

As recruiters, we are sometimes driven people, always seeking our personal best and we also impact a lot of other lives without even knowing it. So keep paying it forward... it truly works!

Last week I received a DM on LI from my former executive coach "deep mind explorer" Erl-Morrell Stinson

He asked me… Continue

The Hidden Profit Available Inside Your Recruitment Company

I wasn't at the major Australian recruitment industry conference last month in Queensland (RCSA Conference), but from all accounts it was an excellent conference. I did follow the articles and blogs being posted from the conference and one in particular caught my eye.

It was Top consultants bill five times more: Study.

The article reported on the BSRP Asia research that concluded that the financial difference between the elite recruiter and the average was… Continue

Recruiting for the Future

There are two types of companies – those that are growing and those that are slowly dying. This was a key lesson that I learnt some years ago from one of my mentors.

Trying to pick out a winner is not always easy, as some companies are suffering from the "boiling frog" syndrome, and it requires an alignment of the stars to get your selection perfect.

When we recruit for key roles, it is also vital to ensure we appoint candidates that have the potential for further personal… Continue

Are you listening?

Interviewing can be stressful for everyone. But one of the most important things to do when you are in an Interview is LISTEN. In feedback that I have been receiving from clients today is that candidates right now are not listening to the questions that are being asked. They are just diving into why they are the right fit for the job.

Make sure you listen to the questions that are being asked and answer the question is a direct way back. Too wordy of an answer or giving too many examples… Continue

Pardon me while I answer my cell phone and commit other interview blunders...

I love being connected; perhaps a bit too much because getting away becomes more and more difficult the more technology I add to my life. However, there are times when it is completely inappropriate to take advantage of that which instant connectivity has to offer. Specifically I’m referring to answering your cell in the middle of an interview.

I have been working on a position in the treasury group of my company and called a very promising looking candidate today. When I asked if it… Continue
