A values-based corporate culture is fast becoming an integral factor in the workplace. It sets the tone for the daily employee experience – employees want to feel good about their work activities, and a positive culture fosters deep awareness and identification.
The effectiveness of employee referral programs is affected by the quality of the corporate culture. Since referral programs are optional to employees, and lie outside of their job descriptions, they are more likely to be…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

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

Providing your employees with social tools to make job referrals can give your company’s employer brand an incredible boost. Your employees are your company’s best ambassadors, and when they share your job vacancies with their social networks, they not only provide their connections with direct access to the corporate recruitment team, but also send all the right messages about the kind of workplace you run.
Four Unbeatable Employer…Continue

With the US elections fast approaching, let’s take a look at the parallels between the campaign season and the sourcing of top talent. Both election nominees and corporate recruiters actively engage in a series of tactics to prove that theirs is the winning side, whether it be political party or company. Their strategies serve to paint a positive picture of the results they pledge to carry out, including:
1) Benefits: First things first – what do you bring to the table that…Continue

Tis the season for giving, especially in the corporate world. As the economy struggles to get back on its feet, many vendors take this opportunity to remind their clients how lucky they are to have their business.
This is the time for departments to dig deep into their pockets (ok, maybe not that deep) and shell out some cash for that bottle of booze or fruitcake that will hopefully see their relationship through to another year.
If you’re like me and you’ve been lucky enough…Continue

Or did he...
I'll start by saying that I am not an astrologer nor do I understand the first thing outside of the fact that I am a Virgo and that Virgo begins with a V.
I attended a wedding this past weekend and was introduced to a family members "friend". He was a bit older most likely in his 80's. To start a conversation he asked what I do for a living. I kept it simple and told him that I am a recruiter.
The rest of the night was history as…Continue

Wednesday was my one year anniversary as a Corporate Recruiter for Zones. Oddly enough, it was also the day I filled my 120th position. That’s a lot of interviews. Of course this includes internal transfers and promotions I helped facilitate, some easier than others (that’s still a lot of interviews). Here’s some of what I’ve learned –
Recruiting is (still) a sales job. Just because I’m not working on commission anymore doesn’t mean I don’t…Continue

So, I posted this originally back in 2009 on my bloodspot blog "The Recruiter Chronicles" Updated it again a bit essentially the same. The reason I posted this was to help non recruiters appreciate and understand the different forms of recruiting and their individual strengths and weaknesses. Also, for recruiters who have had a singular track, perhaps they could consider switching it up if they feel their strengths are better utilized in a different version of what they are already doing.…Continue

So you want to be a corporate recruiter... I'm not even going to ask why. Now that I’m about a month away from my one year anniversary, I've learned a thing or two about how to survive this adventure. As with any career there are pros, cons, and pitfalls to avoid. One thing I know for sure - recruiting is recruiting - no matter what side of the business you're on. If you're serious about going in house, I hope you're as lucky as I was to find a place that you can actually enjoy…Continue

Branding. It’s no longer just something that cowboys do to their cattle. It’s now a major emphasis for all types of organizations. Think of those huge companies who have the most recognizable logos and names – McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Exxon, Wal-Mart. You don’t…Continue

In a down economy it’s natural to assume that your corporate clients aren’t returning your calls because they aren’t hiring and therefore don’t need your services. How about when things turn around? The reality is hiring takes place in all economic states. The more…

It is interesting to listen when companies complain they have difficulty attracting candidates from out of state. With a little research, a consultant may easily determine why they are experiencing those problems.
Relocation of candidates requires an understanding of psychology, an understanding that recruitment is a sales process, and a recruitment process that does not interfere with those understandings.
One of my clients decided to transition an important…Continue
