People get bored. This is the number one reason that anything ‘new and shiny’ captures our attention. We get frustrated that what we’re doing is, well, kind of repetitive and doesn’t work the way
we imagined it would. Then something new comes along
and we think: Maybe this time things will be different! Maybe
that software will really work. Maybe this really is the
Or, maybe… Continue

A few weeks back I asked you to help with a job board industry survey – and you did! You answered questions about the effect of the recession on your job sites, threats to your business – and your thoughts about the future of the industry. So first and foremost, thanks!
I received 94 completed responses – which gives me considerable confidence in the results. A wide range of job sites participated, ranging in revenues from less than $500,000 to more than $10 million. Each size… Continue

One of the more humiliating recent events within the Australian recruitment industry was Chandler Macleod’s withdrawal from the $400 million Australian Defence Force recruitment contract it had won from incumbent provider, Manpower.
At the time of the contract win in July 2008, Stephen Cartwright, the CEO at that time of Chandler Macleod, described it as a ‘landmark contract’. And so it proved to be a ‘landmark’ in how quickly a contract ‘win’ could turn into a morale-sapping, PR and… Continue

We all know about helicopter parents – those nuts who start off doing their kids' homework and end up filling out their job applications – but what about helicopter managers? I don’t mean micro-managers who follow their team members around breathing down their necks. I mean the supervisors who fail to realize that it’s their job to develop the leadership skills of their staff; who hold onto every task that requires collaboration or decision making for themselves rather than… Continue

Sometimes things don’t go the way you expected them to. The time, effort and personal investment we put into something that simply ended in nothing more than a simple “that’s it” in the story of life can be an emotional toll. The high you ride when things are great and moving along in the right direction often opens its way to a melancholy state of contentment where you are sure they are moving still – but not sure if its the direction you want to be headed until the anti-climatic end to things… Continue

In August 2009 I blogged about the innovative recruitment campaign of Australian software company, Atlassian
. This campaign invited open slather recruitment agency participation ... with a catch. The Atlassian32 campaign was launched with the purpose of hiring 32 software engineers for their Sydney head office.
After I posted the article on my personal blog 39 people commented on the article, easily the most number of comments any of my blog posts has received. To say… Continue

Why is being a mentor
important? More importantly, why is being mentored important.
There's been a lot of discussion this week about lists. I scratched my head and thought, "HRMargo
, what matters most about this? Why is this topic important to you?"
It's important because I am who I am because of the people who've influenced my life. The people who have influenced my career… Continue

Doostang just announced that they’ve landed $1.25 million in new funding. That’s not a huge investment compared to the boom years, but it is a signal that our industry may have reached bottom and is beginning to rebound.
So you’ve survived the worst. Now what are you going to do?
Do you have a plan for growth? If not, now is a good time to start – because if you don’t, your competitors will. The job board industry is like any other; you can grow, or you can fade away.… Continue

Tonight, on #hrhappyhour @SteveBose and @HR_Minion hosted, and Grant McCracken appeared. This post is not about him, nor is it about his book Chief Culture Officer. He was an intelligent, and engaging guest, and after perusing his book on Amazon.com I’m convinced he has his thumb on the pulse of how to shape, mold, and transform the internal and external organization culture. Cold cultures, and toxic cultures will kill the life blood of the company, its employees, and bury its bodies in the… Continue

It’s easy to do: you work and obsess over building the perfect job board, making certain that posting a resume is easier than sneezing – but then you forget about the world outside your site. Or you spend hours on backlinks, blog postings, and email campaigns, only to discover that your site just isn’t that easy to use.
Job boards have to function equally well both inside the site and outside the site. As a colleague once said, “You can build the best store in the world, but you’ll… Continue
