‘Don't drink the bar dry' and other event networking tips for recruiters

I am not a networking expert but through the hard yards of personal experience I learned how to get the most from networking events when I was a recruiter.



In this day and age with the accompanying vast amounts of free information available via the internet, it frequently surprises me how unprepared most recruiters appear to be, for live networking events.

 

There are many opportunities to network online and maybe that abundance causes recruiters to be less prepared…

There is more in you than you think

Two weeks ago I took my eldest son to the 2012 Year 7 Orientation Day at his new secondary school. All the kids and parents were milling around before the event started. There was an excited buzz in the air as students from many different primary schools checked out their future school-mates.

 

As I was waiting for the formalities to start, I was looking around the hall and noticed the school motto plastered across the wall: There is more in…

Repurposing Your Recruiters During Downsizing

Today, Dan Kilgore on my team wrote a great post that I thought would be great to share with everyone:

Okay, we’re now a few years into “The Great Recession”, and despite the predictions of many of the political and economic pundits, a healthy rebound that includes genuine and sustained job growth is still “just… Continue

Jumping up and down on the CEO’s desk screaming, “HR NEEDS A SEAT AT THE TABLE!” won’t get you there



I know, amazing.  Guilty as charged, right here too.

 

Let me back up…If your organization is tactical in nature and responsive to every fire the C-level throws at the HR department to fix, then that is precisely what you will get – every fire and nothing more.  If you are responsive, but also focused on autonomous mastery of the HR discipline, consistency of purpose, and include everyone in your organization in this transformation –  the C-level will come to you for that…

I’m a Start-Up, and I Need to Start Hiring… Now What?

What is going to make your business grow? Hiring the right people. What is the most important asset to your organization? Hiring the right people. How are you going to meet your business objectives? Hiring the right people. Yet most organizations don’t take the time to really think about how, who, or when they are going to attract people to their organization.

 

For some reason, hiring is very reactive, and this puts…

10 Tips on Getting a Contract with an HR Gatekeeper

1. Cold Calls. If you are cold calling me from any company that rhymes with Blobert Blaf or similar companies, call me from your mobile because I can see your company on my caller ID.  Expect me to still blow you off, but call me in 6 months to show me you made it. We may talk then.…

Attracting Passive Candidates?

When I attend recruiting conferences and Human Resource meetings nationwide, inevitably the conversation works its way to attracting the Holy Grail of recruitment – the Passive Candidate.

 

It is valuable to listen carefully to that person’s definition of whom the Passive Candidate is.  Generally companies define the Passive Candidate as someone who is doing a job at a high level within another company; and is perfectly content to remain…

Indeed, customer service, and job boards: a cautionary tale

Imagine that you’re one of the thousands of job boards that provided Indeed with job postings from its inception. Imagine that in addition to providing those jobs (which turned Indeed into the most visited job site on the web), you also spent money promoting those same jobs – thus providing Indeed with a lucrative source of income. Imagine that, in return, Indeed provided your job board with a stream of inbound referrals (both organic and…

The danger of ‘big’ – it sometimes goes away

One of the first business lessons I learned many years ago was that it is often better to havemany smaller customers than fewer large ones. At the time, I was learning the ropes from a battle-hardened magazine publisher. He said (in reference to my naive comment that I would rather have Microsoft as an advertiser than a dozen smaller ones), “Where are you when your big customer decides to ‘shift focus’? Your loss will be 100% of income, rather than 15% or 20%. How long does…

Are you awake? Lots of changes in the online recruiting world!

There is a lot of activity in the online recruiting industry now – more than I’ve seen in many years. Money is flowing in, startups are blossoming, and established players are branching out.

So why now? Part of it stems from the (slow) retreat of the recession – more people working means more interest in finding candidates. Part comes from the rise of social media and mobile, spurring innovation and new thinking about old recruiting…

Will Social Recruiting Dig the Job Board Plot Next to the "Help Wanted" Grave

I find this whole recruiting train of thought amusing...

Job board networks: the idea that’s never gone away

In the beginning, there was the job board, and the candidates rejoiced. So many jobs! So many locations! So much easier than paper.

The employers liked it, too.

But after a while, candidates realized that general boards were, well….general. They discovered that many (er, most) jobs were inapplicable to their interests. So they asked the job boards to make things easier. “Help us find just the jobs we want!”

Job board operators responded in a variety of…

LinkedIn Concept

I'll give kudos where kudos are due. LinkedIn was a pretty nifty idea. It negated all the Myspace and Facebook triviality and packaged up something that resembled an interactive resume. Not bad. 

 

Recruiters gone wild! People just giving out content that is usually discovered by means of an internet scouring fest? Jockpot.

 

Well... now LinkedIn is trying to play jackpot. They invited us into their site, pampered us a little, spoiled us a bit. Little did…
