It's time recruiters fully understand the service they are offering their clients. Many of us are working on a Contingency basis (ie: only being paid for a successful placement, irrespective of who is put forward for the position); as we think this is what the client wants - in reality a contingency based payment is really only favoured if you are putting forward 1 candidate, if you are working for the candidates best interest.

In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.
What does this mean for the American workforce?
Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…Continue
In a sales interview, when asked, "What percentage of budget did you achieve in the last measurable year?" often the answer is, “100%”. Look at the leader-board in any sales organisation and a very small portion of the team is actually…Continue
Face it, more and more hiring managers are admitting that they will look at a candidate’s social media profile at some point during the hiring process. And why shouldn’t they. There is a lot of valuable information to be gleamed from a candidate’s electronic footprint. A lot has been written about some of the pitfalls and problems with using this data, so I won’t hash over it here. My focus is on 9 things you should consider if you are going to adopt a strategy of using social media (social…Continue
Today is another addition to those “literary posts” that I have already shared with you. This day is a day we take some additional advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world and your recruiting department, because what Shakespeare taught us about love and war, he can also teach us about business. These lessons are most applicable to your Internal Recruiting Staff. Today’s topic: Othello.

It was 7.00 on a Monday morning and as I sat on the train on the way to work I found myself sitting behind two gentlemen who I instinctively expected to work in the financial industry. Both men were well dressed in designer suits and watches and were talking about a recent IPO and about each of their workplaces.
As I eavesdropped on their conversation, I was intrigued at the banter of both men as they each tried to convince…

An article in the New York Times suggests that employers and employees alike might be moving toward a temporary-centric staffing model.
In November 2010, 80% of the 50,000 jobs created in the private sector were temporary positions. For all of 2010, a bit more than 26% of 1.17 million jobs were temporary positions. That’s a lot.
What are we to make of such high numbers of temporary…Continue

A while ago, I mentioned to you about how I have a daughter who studies philosophy and literature in college. We’ve discussed multiple different ways her world of arts and my world of business coincide and have even produced a blog from one of those very discussions. This time we have a series of blogs set up for you, this being the first. This day is a day we take some advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world, because what Shakespeare taught us…Continue
An HR thought leader is someone who has innovative ideas and concepts – someone who, despite what is going on around them, defies convention and tries something new and succeeds. It is a term that was coined over fifteen years ago and has a lot of new dynamics in the current age. I have recently written to you about resources for those who desire to be on the track to HR thought leadership but there is more to sharing innovative ideas than just outlets. There are common traits that can be…Continue
Friday was my last day at Microsoft. I was afforded a great opportunity to create and impact recruiting; an outcome that I did not anticipate when I joined the company five years ago. It was a humbling experience working with the best and the brightest; I was amazed by my colleagues. Amazed, not by just how smart everyone is; but by the quality of human beings they are and the values that are shared. We did some great work together that changed the face of recruiting not only at Microsoft…Continue

The second habit, “Begin with the End in Mind” has wonderful applications to hiring. Combining the two habits, being proactive and beginning with the end in mind, will enable you to envision what the…Continue
