Sales trainers used to train you to pin down your prospect.
“Which do you prefer, the green one or the blue one?”
“Who do you know that’s a fit for this position right now?”
Getting pinned down is uncomfortable. Many people who get pinned down are going to avoid communication with the source of the pinning in the future. When networking for candidates it’s much better to inquire honestly making it easy for the person you’re asking to help you now or at any time that…Continue

As a country and an education system, we really suck at trying to educate job seekers about how to find a career or even decide what they want to have a career doing. We spend an inordinate amount of time focused on chemistry and biology instead of coaching people to find their dreams and…Continue

Like any other relationship, professional relationships are not one sided. In fact, since they are not as personal they often require…Continue

Way back when I first joined LinkedIn I was considered by many of my (regular, non-HR/recruiter) contacts to be an ambassador and promoter of the site. For several (perhaps hundreds) of my connections, I was their first. Less active networkers, distant colleagues, friends, or acquaintances would often comment to me…Continue
I am constantly amazed at how little money most professionals are willing to spend to promote and market themselves. Like this kind of investment — investing in yourself — is crass, egotistical, and over-indulgent. Our actions and accomplishments speak for themselves, right? We’re sick of hearing about…Continue
When companies begin to feel competitive pressure to match the productivity and profits of rival businesses, they often tackle the problem from the angle of the “war for talent.” The thinking is that by better attacking recruitment services, companies can win over more productive employees and edge their competitors through superior work.
Often, this is seen as a company-wide…Continue

Ask a recruiter why they do what they do, and you're likely to get a wide variety of answers. Among them may be:
The fact is, most of us got into this business because deep down we love helping people, just as much if not more than making money. Yes this is true. Fortunately, we've…Continue

I’m often amazed at how many people I meet who tell me that they are no good at making small talk. They are happy to chat with friends, or people that they meet at a party. But when it comes to business, when it comes to networking, they find it tough.
There are few reasons for this, but the most common I…Continue
The only thing cooler than having a conference in your home city is to have it hosted by your employer. I was lucky enough to snag a seat to the hottest sourcing conference around and the first time ever in Seattle. My day started out like any other, except instead of heading to my office I got to join 400+ recruiters and sourcers from across the country at The Mixer. Need a haircut? New…Continue

Wasn’t it Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz who said something about not looking beyond your own backyard to find what you need? I believe she had a point.
Your best business ambassadors may just be your own employees. If you have built a nurturing environment and created an atmosphere that breeds loyalty, you probably have the best promoters of your company right in front of you. After all, who among us doesn’t love to brag?
I was at a wedding a few weeks ago when someone asked…Continue
Unfortunately networking and career development are not always the main focus on college campuses but you can do more networking at college than you think.

One of my contacts shared this vent with me. Thought it pretty much sums up some of the lazy, sloppy, clueless types that somehow found their way into the recruiting realm.
I honestly have a ton of recruiters that contact me, the majority are very bad at their job and I would never work with them but this specific recruiter keeps sending me positions where I do not fulfill what is identified in the job description and/or requirements, so after being nice on about…
