Admit it, the big "O" stimulates quite a reaction

You clicked to read about your idol Oprah, didn’t you? No, expecting some other big “O” content… Well, then you’re on the wrong website, buster!

Badge of honor, source of pleasure, reason for pride, satisfaction to scream about or maybe just something to accept quietly and celebrate contently in your own mind. The big O in all of its glory. Whether solo, with a best buddy or as a group, it’s something we’ll all experience - if we’re lucky to last that long.

What, you’re not…

Recruiting Communication: Email is dead. Send flowers, pay your respects and move on.

Do you remember recruitment back in the 1990s? I do. A typical day would start with the post being delivered, we would gather around and rip open all the envelopes, pore over the CVs, passing them around the boardroom table in Number 2 Argyle Square, Donnybrook, where I started my recruitment career with …

This concept also applies to recruiting.  At least it does for me, now going on 40 years in the discipline.
Do you youngsters, I mean, younger professionals in the business see yourselves doing this kind of work for a few…

The Age Old Debate

So we’ve all heard the generational gripes when it comes to finding a job. Each side of the fence thinks that they have it so rough.

Young: “Yo, I don’t have enough experience 2 b considered for a job position, man. I’m so gonna’ be unemployed forever! Not cool!…

Block out the noise and make a presentation!

Is someone considering the opportunity you’ve just presented to them? When your phone rings – or email buzzes – what are the chances it is someone saying “Let’s move ahead.”? If the chances are good, then keep doing what you’re doing. If not, you better change something pretty quick!

Am I old school? You bet. I’ve survived. Not only have I survived – I’m living the American Dream! I say this not to boast but to make a rather simple…

The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same

Recently, I was looking over some of my recruiting material from about 14+ years ago. I reviewed all the sections about sourcing candidates (from cold calls to referrals), picking up job leads from newspapers (remember those) to references and many other "old school" techniques. Here is what I realized; Nothing today is really NEW!

Think about it; what "inventions" are really new? Data storage; sure the way we store the data has changed from… Continue

Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?

This topic can be quite a minefield and a conversation that may need to be looked at from many different angles. In the UK age discrimination has been unlawful in employment, training and education since October 2006. In the recruitment world in the UK there are strict rules in relation to posting job adverts, collecting… Continue

Bring back the Old or Bring in the New ?

Now I am all for new technology when it comes to benefiting my business processes. I have developed my skills in recruitment and sales through quite a few technological changes and started in recruitment with a Rolodex and some applicant cards (we now call them candidates!). We have been introduced to that wonderful piece of technology called the database or if you are really into your terminology I think the today's trendy description would be a CRM or Customer Relationship… Continue

Human Resources: Be Like a 1-year Old

“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards. - Vernon Saunders Law

In order to be in HR (or any field or career mind you) you need to approach everything like a 1 yr old.

  1. Crawl, Walk, and then Run – Whether you start out as a specialist, a generalist or in a rotation from one area to another, don’t fool yourself into thinking you know everything.…

“I’m 52, With White Hair…But I’m Not DEAD!”

As a recruiter, I just have a few questions to ask for the sake of those who, like me, are beyond 50 years old. These questions are meant for serious debate, instead of an attempt to conjure argument:…

Old School Recruiting and Social Media

I got into a conversation with the guy standing on a step-ladder changing light bulbs while I waited for my wife as she browsed the merchandise in a boutique clothing store.

Being the old school recruiter that I am, I quickly discovered that his name was Fabian, he was the owner of the store, it was newly opened store in the area, and we were his very first customers.

The reason why I am blogging about this conversation is because this guy said a few things that has some… Continue

Happy 4th of July

It's Independance day and I can think of no better way to spend it than with family and friends. My daughter Claire chose to ride her razor in the West Lake Pond Parade, while my son Jackson rode in a two seater wagon with his buddy Shea. As usual, it was a fun family adventure mixed with friends we hadn't seen in a while and some professional networking -… Continue
