Establishing a new telephone account the other day, I noted that there was going to be monetary credit if I simply logged on to the cell phone company's home page and filled out a simple survey. Obviously I am going to take full advantage of such an offer, so I dutifully went online, filled out the survey, clicked their "submit" button and then checked my account balance. No credit. "Okay," I thought, "maybe it takes 24 hours for their system to credit the account. I'll check… Continue

We have just launched a new community on HR recruiters and CEOs of 17 IT companies in Saxony, Germany who recommend their applicants among each other. How? They recommend the good ones, who cannot be hired due to several reasons, to the other members of the communities. The recommendation is done by a reference code that is given to the denied applicants by the recommending organization. After that the applicant can go to the community-exclusive portal (… Continue

I know this is nuts, but I was up all Sunday night, thinking about all my candidate and recruiter contacts who keep harassing me on how to use linkedin. I have to admit that most users of this group are pretty connected and use linkedin pretty aggressively, but then there are so many other of my contacts that are on linkedin but still don't really use it effectively.
Many of my contacts know that I believe in a big linkedin network. (on the quality - quantity… Continue

In this economy, I wanted to reach out to candidates and give the do’s and don'ts of writing not just a good, but an EFFECTIVE RESUME. I asked my very
opinionated team of K. Russo Associates executive recruiters to write down all the things that we as recruiters (and therefore Human Resource managers) find helpful and annoying when reading over a resume.
The Top DO’s for Good Resume Writing
• Use a clean and simple font; stay away from anything cursive or hard to… Continue

While browsing the ‘news web’ this morning I pick up an interesting article entitled “Beware job board CV advice”. The headline immediately caught my eye and the content certainly raised a few questions.
Written by Nick Gendler, a career coach at Workjoy.co.uk, the piece discusses the author’s experience (via a colleague) with a CV review/writing service, offered by [continue… Continue

(This is something I wrote up for a friend that I found out lost his job via his Facebook status...)
Here are just a few ways to use Facebook as a tool in your job search
1)Sync your Twitter feed with your Facebook status. Then use Tiny URL to embed your resume in your status. If you are not too web savvy then post your resume on Resumebucket. Almost every day I see a status about… Continue

This morning I logged in to my email and received this warning from the System Administrator:
“Your mailbox has exceeded one or more size limits set by your administrator.”
My InBox has filled up with tons of applicants applying for active openings. The sheer amount of applicants isn’t what amazed me. It was the amount of people applying for postings that don’t match the skill set in the listing. One missed requirement that stood out most… Continue

I've been recruiting non-Dutch speakers for jobs in The Netherlands since May '08. February 2nd, our new site went live, offering more advanced and automated features. I am now able to offer my clients a no cure no pay job board model, next to a classic agency model. So what does this mean?

In speaking with recruiters on a daily basis, I’m often asked about Twitter. What is it? How does it work? How can it help me as a recruiter? etc. In my opinion Twitter is a fantastic recruiting tool and also a great tool for people who are looking for a job.
If I were a recruiter I would have a link in my email signature that encourages job seekers to “follow me on Twitter
“. Then I would offer to alert them every time I find out about a… Continue

People are running to and fro suspended in disbelief regarding the economic downturn and the announcement of ever increasing layoffs. Passions are at a high, and people are lucky to get a job is the general view all around. Does that leave no room for negotiation I was asked? If I get selected, can I still negotiate salary or are they simply going to select the next person out of the 100 applicants. What am I to do?
Lets talk about Jennifer.
Jennifer is a mid level systems… Continue

I am motivated to write this however will begin in saying that I pray my words do not lead anyone to believe I am not sensitive to what is going on in the country and the economic situation of people all over the world. However I write on the comments and expectations I see sewn throughout the conversations on the net about the changing government and the increase our new leadership will offer.
Let us be honest, if change happens - our government will have done little for our… Continue

With more and more companies reducing headcount a trend has emerged that has me baffled. As you might expect we’ve targeted companies that are performing poorly because they are easier to recruit from since logically many more people are looking to “jump ship”, but what we’ve seen is that while many of these potential candidates are expecting to be let go the are actually waiting around for it to happen.
The big reason….the severance package…Huh?
Yes it seems the belief of… Continue

Great turnout. With bad news aplenty in the industry, it's nice to be reminded that online recruitment advertising remains a massive opportunity (we still think at least £200+mm in the UK) with many smart people involved. Companies are still recruiting, but to a lesser degree, and there is greater pressure on them to be… Continue
