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
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has initiated a new campaign to thwart the increased use of industrial espionage. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal , the new campaign will focus on the prevention of corporate espionage. The FBI will feature…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
I’m back at work this week after a refreshing 3 week break - if you can call driving 4,500km’s from one end of Australia to the other, with a 2 & 4 year old in the back seat a refreshing break…
‘Are we there yet?’
‘Can we stop at McDonalds?’
‘Are we there yet?’
‘I’ve got to go to the toilet…’
‘Are we there yet?’ I’m sure you get the general idea….
Anyway, back at work I was tucking into my chicken salad sandwich and bottle of water in the food…Continue
Since we largely train recruiters and businesses how to leverage the power of social media as a sourcing tool, an employer branding tool and a business development tool, one common question we get asked all the time from nervous HR managers to company directors is advice on a social media policy that will enable…Continue
Recruitment is the process of finding, screening, and selecting qualified candidates for a job at a company or organization. Recruitment begins the moment a job becomes available and ends when an offer of employment is accepted by a job seeker. In between, the recruitment team (or person) may perform any or all of the following tasks: creating a job description, advertising the job, sourcing, screening, interviewing, performing background checks (including references, credit checks, and…Continue

Lemmings. Junior HR twerps. Gatekeepers. Obstacles. Just plain “in-the-way-of-the-real-work-the-grown-ups-are-doing”.
Now before anyone starts setting the comment section on fire, please note that I am myself a corporate recruiter. I don’t think I fall into ANY of those categories, nor do any of my excellent co-workers. In fact, I work internally for one of the very few companies I would ever consider going in house for. Many of these issues don’t apply to me, but some…Continue
