How to create a strong employer brand

Branding is important and we all know that. A strong brand can make a company, and a weak brand can break it. Employer branding is even more important and I’ve mentioned why several times – a good employer branding takes an organization’s company culture, values, and story and makes it part of the overall brand.

Do Your Own Job: I’m Not Your Researcher, Sourcer or Contact Database

Quite frequently I get contacted by people searching for something or someone. Normally, I don’t mind that. Actually sometimes it is flattering that a random stranger or casual acquaintance found something about me intriguing enough to think I’d be a good person to contact to get help with their situation.

In posting this I realize I may ruffle some feathers and raise some eyebrows.  My intent is not to come across as someone unwilling to lend a hand or offer assistance. The opposite…

Must-Haves in Executive Recruiting Data Systems

I’ve had two experiences implementing executive recruiting systems, once at a boutique search firm and another at Lockheed Martin. In the former, we were moving from a paper-based system to a digital one. In the latter, the function was in start-up, so we had the luxury of beginning from scratch.

Happy Earth Day!

In 2008, MBA Focus and its partner schools decided to no longer offer printed resume books to recruiters in an effort to conserve paper and save trees. Based on the number of resume books ordered each year, the company can save at least 75 trees per year. Although a relatively small contribution, when you combine it with the resources we save on shipping, we are taking a step toward helping the environment.

Using LinkedIn to Find Recruiters

Recruiters are a great source for finding a job that will fit your need and skill set.  They help you through the interview process and try to help prepare you for your interviews.  The best thing about having a recruiter help you is that they have already done most of the leg work.  They know the right contacts for certain companies and have built relationships with the people that work there.

How to find and extract qualified resumes from the Internet search ?

Do you think you can find the right candidate for the right job when your resume database has resumes that were updated a year or years ago? Certainly not.
