Celebrating Your Career Independence

Like most of you, I spent this past weekend relaxing, catching up on some long-neglected chores and between periods of light showers and heavy rain, enjoying some traditional July 4th fare, hotdogs, apple pie and lemonade.

I did give some thought about the reason for our celebration. I think many of us,…

Business Connection Sites: Can Recruiters or Employers Really Rely on a Person's Internet Listing Instead of an Application, Background Check or other Due Diligence Tools

We have heard the argument made that using business connections sites is more accurate then resumes and can even replace a past employment check, since a candidate is not as likely to lie on an online service where many friends and colleagues may see it.…

Employee Trust & Social Recruiting

One of the main concerns about using social media for recruiting is that employees utilizing these tools will take actions that will damage the employment brand of the company. While this is certainly possible, there is also the potential for damage to be done using the telephone, email, or in-person. Perhaps, it is the ever presence of the web or the publicity that well-known brand gaffes have received that is leading to an overabundance of caution when determining how to use these new…

Why do your employees Stay?

Way back in February, I wrote about the “Stay Interview” ( and I wanted to add a bit more information about that since it seemed to be a particular topic of interest.

Most of us are quite familiar with the exit interview; however, it seems that the reasons employees stay is not asked nearly as frequently as why employees leave. That doesn’t make a lot of sense to…

The Impact of the Social Graph on Recruiting

For far too long, marketers, advertisers, and recruiters have undervalued the way actual decisions are made. Witness the interrupt driven nature of product advertising and job postings. The assumption is that by placing information in front of customers or prospective candidates, we will automatically convince them to buy our products or apply for work at our organization.

Real World Decisions

In the real world, this is not how things works at all. Most…

Disasters – Can your EMPLOYEES Recover?

Try to imagine this scenario: You are a BP Oil or Halliburton employee anywhere along the Gulf Coast, attending a friend’s backyard barbecue on a recent Sunday, and in between sips of beer and nibbles of chips and dip, you hear, over and over, “Oh my god, you…

Set Social Recruiting Boundaries

Just because your company is still deciding on whether or not to implement Social Recruiting into your overall recruiting strategy doesn’t mean you should delay setting a Social Recruiting policy. This can be a simple one-page of guidelines for appropriate use by employees based on the expected usage of these tools now or in the future. Being proactive about developing a usage policy will help avoid many of the issues that can result from a hands-off approach.

Aim to Manage, Not Control Social Recruiting

As the conversation shifts from whether or not to use Social Recruiting to how best to use these new tools; I think one of the foundational principles that companies need to embrace is an aim to manage, not control the interactions. I think there are some compelling reasons why this approach will ultimately make the efforts of companies seeking talent more successful.

Network Ownership

In a network, each member is at the center of their own personal and…

Talent Management: Guess What, It's All About the Talent

When I hear the term Talent Management, I often hear it talked about in the context of recruiting and sourcing. Now I may be completely off, but to me, Talent Management is much more than just finding people for the role. It’s much more than finding the RIGHT people for a company to fill a job. Talent management is more than just recruiting. It is about how you interact, engage and build the people you have, to retain and develop them and even if they leave you, they… Continue

Inverse Recruiting for "The Greatest Employee in the World"

Hey Team,

I'll be honest here, I don't know much about recruiting. What I do know more than my fair share about is job hunting. Although, now that I think about it, I could sum up all that knowledge pretty easily with two little words...

It sucks.

In today's world of Craigslist, Monster and CareerBuilder the 21 million Americans that faced unemployment last year… Continue
