Recruiting firms and HR recruiters agreed that they prefer hiring a candidate who possesses the right attitude and good work ethic rather than a glowing CV. No doubt, knowledge of the job is important but it can be learned while working especially at junior level. But to find someone who fits perfectly according to the work culture of an organization is very difficult. Culture fit is very important for the hiring process.
Organizations are investing a…Continue

I like to publish small snippets periodically, because it's fun to write and think, and I like to share my thoughts with others. However, it's another matter altogether when I see someone with a year of experience in recruiting, after previously being a hairdresser, passing off a classic article on "Counteroffers" on LinkedIn as his own work.
3000+ views is a lot of attention for a recruiter to grab, but it would certainly have been much more ethical to do his own work, wouldn't…Continue

As a career recruiter, I’ve seen my share of ‘shifty business’. And sometimes from employers themselves! It usually involved a client contacting my candidate directly so as to avoid having to pay a recruitment fee.
Such shady dealings have unfortunately always taken…
Recruitment isn’t an easy lark. As a recruitment consultant I am often on the phone to candidates of an evening, arranging interviews and hearing feedback. There is an argument to be made that some…Continue
Well now, it's been a couple of years and my recruiting life is going along pretty good. Exceeding my numbers, gaining exclusive clients, having fun and thinking this is the best job and the best place I could ever work. We have monthly contests, quarterly contests, yearly contests; go on weekend retreats (with our spouses) to golf resorts and ski resorts (depending on the time of year) for morning training meetings and golf outings or skiing or even just laying around the pool in the…Continue
As we fight the uphill battle against Recruitment’s dire reputation by striving to provide the best service we can and be as ethical and incisive as possible, we do occasionally come across an instruction from the client side that never fails to shock me. I’m sure it’s something that many Recruiters will recognise, a little throwaway comment that is couched in a joke and a twinkling smile but is actually as concrete an instruction as any of the immovables on the brief.
Right off the top, no, I didn’t just swear. These two words are thrown around daily under a multitude of reasons; but how many people actually back it up or even mean it as much more than a catch phrase or cliché? We all deal with people, either working with, or working for; and regardless of our job-identity; in one way or another we always defer to those two words in almost every close. How do you guarantee satisfaction? Have you listened intently to the customer or to the supervisor and…Continue

The Customer Is Always Right?
Did I really put a question mark on this phrase? We’re taught from our first job bagging groceries and ripping up movie stubs that the phrase ‘The Customer is Always Right’ will end in either an exclamation point or period. It’s a subject that has finally got me motivated to begin my blog…
I have a client who is a tremendously successful businessman, salesman, and entrepreneur who currently owns a business that…Continue

I'm not a huge LinkedIn user. I have my own reasons; one being that I see them as a potential major competitor (all of us in the ATS/Recruiting business should be wary of them) but another being that I just don't have that much bandwidth between Facebook (which I really must use for family and friends) and email (which is how I do most of my work). In regards to our sales reps, we say to use whatever tools they think will move them forward-…Continue
It's what we look for in a recruiter. Someone who is going to help in the job hunt, coach on how to get through the interview process, and provide all the…
