You can fail at hiring. Maybe you’re even failing now.
“But Jenn,” you say, “I still manage to hire people. How can I be failing?”
You can be scoring a failing hiring grade and still do just enough to fill…Continue
I’ve spent most of my career as a hiring manager, but I’ve recently had the opportunity to become a candidate (which resulted in your getting to read my blog article today ). And I have to tell you – it can be shockingly annoying to be on the candidate’s side of the table.

Recruiting and technology can be a dreadful combination if personal touch is sacrificed for the sake of streamlining processes (think: being caught in automated phone system hell).
I recently spoke…Continue
A few days ago there was an article posted on this blog about whether or not it's OK to burn bridges. I guess that's a matter of opinion and circumstance but if my severe Road Rage (Washington DC area traffic) has taught me anything of value, it would be "WHY BOTHER."
So that manager never called you back after the interview and your previous boss was a horror show. Do you think that by airing your experience publicly that no one else is going to show up for an interview with that…Continue
First, let me explain that I spent several years earning my chops as an agency recruiter at some really small shops. This meant I was always fighting an uphill battle against the big boys in the space that had name recognition, a volume over margin focus, and huge databases. I was able to parlay that experience with a Masters Degree in Human Resource Development in order to switch over to the dark side of corporate recruiting and HR. What I have learned in making this switch has been…Continue

Years and years ago, my first agency recruiting job was with Source Services Corporation now known as Kforce. My first week there they sent me to training in Dallas where we spent a couple of days learning what the experts thought we should know. I remember quite a few things from those days but one thing struck me as strange. The old war horse recruiter, he described himself that way, said that customers don't do business with the company. They do business with the…Continue

Five years on using social media: have recruitment agencies learnt to interact?
We have all seen the power that social media has.

It was the great new buzzword a few years ago and now it has become part of the corporate lexicon. But what does it really mean? Here’s one definition from the Conference Board's…
