An Insider's Opinion Regarding Corporate and Agency Recruiters

First, let me explain that I spent several years earning my chops as an agency recruiter at some really small shops. This meant I was always fighting an uphill battle against the big boys in the space that had name recognition, a volume over margin focus, and huge databases. I was able to parlay that experience with a Masters Degree in Human Resource Development in order to switch over to the dark side of corporate recruiting and HR. What I have learned in making this switch has been…

Staffing Agencies = Training Ground for Corporate Recruiters?


I never thought I’d be a corporate recruiter.  Well, if we go back far enough I never thought I’d be a recruiter.  In fact, I don’t know a single recruiter who set out to BE a recruiter, on purpose.  We all seemed to kind of fall into it, but I digress. 


I started out as many do, in an agency.  Actually my first experience with an agency was covering the front desk at a recruiting firm that rhymes with Blobert Blaf.  I remember the staffing managers literally…

How Important are Work Ethics to You?


Ethics are a big deal in the corporate world. Companies want to be seen as ethical, therefore making them a top notch company to work for and trust in. Not only should a company be ethical, but so should their employees. Would you work for an unethical company just because you need a job? Some people would, but you need to figure out for yourself how important ethics are to you!

We have all seen the scandals on TV…

The Renault Case--When Industrial Espionage Case Might Has Hidden Objectives

Industrial espionage has been on the rise, along with employee theft.   Perhaps it is the bad economy or perhaps the overall loosening of ethics, but more employees, disgruntled and otherwise are stealing valuable proprietary data and attempting to sell it to the competitor.

French automotive giant, Renault, thought it had such a calamity where three of its employees where suspected of stealing sensitive documents related to Renault's electric car program and selling it off to the…

Beware of Thieving Employees and Increased Industrial Espionage

Make no mistake, industrial espionage is on the rise.  That and an increase in employee theft have given more than one executive premature gray hairs.   Large multi-national corporations and smaller business entities are all vulnerable.  All you need is something the other guy wants.   It can be everything from advanced, first in your space technology to intellectual property.  It can be sensitive databases, customer rosters, proprietary data.

Call it a sign of the times or the…

Does your Interview process match your Work Environment?

So we’ve all seen it.  A candidate goes 2 rounds of behavioral interviews, everyone loves them then they get into the actual role and fizzle.  Whether it’s a disconnect with overall fit or a overall lack of tangible skills for the position, it’s always an unfortunate position to be in.  The real question, is how can you ensure this happens less often or better yet prevent it altogether?


The answer might be as simple as testing their skills to make sure they fit the…

Social recruiting? It's just a passing fad (unless you're a household name company of course)

Microsoft. Apple. Google. Coca Cola. Virgin. The BBC. What do they have in common? Each of them could advertise on the back of a cigarette packet, put a card in a shop window or float a message in a bottle out to sea and they would still get a good response to their recruitment campaigns. Indeed all of them receive hundreds of unsolicited applications each and every year.

Blogging for new position here in the Washington, DC area

Okay, so it's a tough economy for some industries and for others things are starting to pick up a bit. Don't get me wrong; it will take till 2014 till we can recover some of the jobs that we lost (at least here in the Capital area) during the 2008 and 2009 time frame. I listened to a presentation about a month ago given by Dr. Stephen S. Fuller which substantiates this in…

How to Praise Your Employees

Leadership is often as much about how we make our employees feel as it is what we are able to achieve. However, in many workplaces the drive for higher numbers leaves the people stuff on the sidelines. Inspirational leaders know that when they praise their employees on a regular basis the results will come. Here are some common thoughts I hear in workplaces and some ideas to help you praise your employees more effectively.

The Triple Bottom Line and Talent Management

Leading authors are writing about it; conferences are featuring it; and many are calling on corporations to report on it. The triple bottom line—people, profits and planet—has unofficially become a leading indicator. Rather than being measured solely on profitability, companies, and their customers, are increasingly adopting “the three pillars” to define business success.

The term “triple bottom line” was first used in 1989 by sustainability consultant John Elkington to define…

Culture with a little C; don’t let it undermine your business

Probably the most common definition of an organization's culture is "the way we do things around here." If you're an executive describing your culture, you're most likely referring to your mission, vision and values; and your core beliefs and what they represent. Something like: "We have a culture of accountability, high quality customer service, respect for employees and a commitment to community service." And you, yourself, may exhibit and experience all of these characteristics. But what…

Tru Unconferences reach Africa

I’m not a tree hugger, well I am, but not in the ‘protest and chain myself to a bark for the day’ type of tree hugger. However I do believe in karma of sorts. Allow me to take recruitment down the spiritual path for a sentence or two.

So we are all connected, from the small ant to the great white. Indeed someone told me once that if it weren’t for ants, the human race would not exist (something about the biological ecosystem community, I have no idea, and haven’t got round to… Continue
