The most successful business development person in his/her respective staffing niche will ALWAYS be the one who knows and understands his/her competition. As much as I hate the old saying that there's "A" time and there's "B" time. "A" time for a sales rep consists of the execution of everything you prepared in your "B" time. If that bothers you, you're in the…Continue

18yrs in the staffing and recruiting industry the hands-down, number 1 question that I witness asked over and over by a prospective client to a recruiter is…. “What makes you different from all the other services that call me 24/7?” This is a legitimate question that can cause many sales reps (of recruiting companies) to shift a bit uneasily in their chair (right before they give you one of several…Continue

We all use email, and we use it all day long. It’s both a great help and a great hinderance. Great for some tasks, massively overused for others. In many ways, it has changed the way that we work, and the speed at which we correspond.
The reality is that email is as much a part of our working lives as the…Continue

Ever seen those training providers that promise to help you unlock the secrets to cold-calling?
Most of the time this “secret” turns out to be something inane like sounding really happy when you make the call or only doing it when the sun’s shining.
What seems to drive of most of the recruitment sales training I’ve ever seen is the fact that cold-calling is an omnipresent part of a recruiter’s life - and so they had better get good at it.
Frankly, I think that’s…Continue
As noted in previous posts, I’ve been thinking lately about what makes a job board good – or not. Below are a few questions to that effect – and yes, some employment sites have these features, but most do not. Maybe there absent features you’ve wondered about?
Keeping yourself relevant, fresh and up-to-date can be a part-time job. But spending just 15-30 minutes per week on LinkedIn will most definitely help you in the long-run. 175 million registered users can’t be wrong!
1. Make sure your profile is current and accurate.…Continue
In The Start Up of You by Reid Hoffman & Ben Casnocha (Crown Business, 2012) the real gold is in Chapter 7. The chapter opens thus:
A decade ago, Bill Gates wrote: 'The most meaningful way to differentiate your company from your competition, the best way to put distance between you and the crowd, is to do an outstanding job with information. How you gather, manage and use information will determine whether you win or…Continue
Now that I've written a few blogs, I get contacted rather regularly about some of my more popular articles. Its rewarding to think people actually read them and find that it helps them in some way. That's cool! Recently, a recruiter asked me if I had any blogs or tips on business development. I promptly answered no but thanks. This is an important topic and it certainly should be discussed. So lets discuss some meat and potatoes of our business. How do we land our customers? How do…Continue

What a wasted…Continue

A few weeks back I posed the question“What is a job board?”. In the process of trying to answer that question, I mentioned LinkedIn as a prime example of something thatlooks like a job board, acts like a job board, butclaims not to be a job…Continue
I recently had the privilege of hosting #HFChat – the HireFriday Tweet-fest organized by @HRMargo and @CyndyTrivella. HireFriday is all about helping job seekers find work. Recruiters, HR professionals, and the occasional job board doctor pose and answer common questions about the job hunt. It’s a wonderful event for all involved.
My subject – surprisingly enough! – was “Making job boards work for you”. The conversation ranged from the basics (setting up job alerts, using job boards…Continue

Don’t you get tired of asking the same questions every day? I don’t know how you can do this job. Now I admit to having asked my day care provider how she can do her job every day without moments of insanity, but that is another story. In truth, I may ask the same questions, but I don’t get the same answers. But to be honest, especially with the phone interview, that is not why I love doing this job. It is for a very different reason. It is the same reason that I strongly disagree with…Continue
