They're Just Not That Into You: 8 Signs A Candidate Isn't Interested

In less than one year, I cancelled my LinkedIn premium account.  It wasn't because of the cost; two of my placements were the direct result of using their In-mail feature.  So why did I forfeit over 75 unused In-mail credits?  Let’s just say that I was spending way too much time on the site.  Looking at profiles…

Secrets for Successfully Recruiting Passive Job Hunters

Passive job seekers aren't those who are lazy or disinterested. In fact, they're quite the opposite - they're too busy doing their job successfully to know that another company has their sights set on their talent. That's exactly what makes them so appealing.

For one thing, these candidates are currently employed. They're productive members of the workforce, gaining skills, experience, and education that could benefit your company. However, they're not the people who are searching job…

How to cement your reputation as a dorkola recruiter

Here we go… another horrible example of the type of cold call/emails some recruiters are sending.

I’ve never heard of the recruiter that sent this - who according to their LI profile, has been an agency recruiter since 2008 and has a whopping 36 connections. I don’t recall having any prior interactions with their agency and don’t know how they have my email address. What I do know is this a one of the lamest messages I’ve seen in quite a while.

Is there any responsibility to educate or enlighten your hiring managers?

A friend and former colleague recently told me about a frustrating conversation with a recruiter. Come to think of it I rarely, if ever, hear from anyone telling me about a fantastic interaction with a recruiter. Why is that?

Anyway, my friend saw one of their connections “like” that recruiter’s LinkedIn status about a search they were working on. Thinking it looked appealing, my friend…

Leading the Way to a Winning Employee Referral Program

Leads present an excellent opportunity for corporate recruiters to garner more qualified candidates via their employee referral programs. Permitting employees to do their own initial qualifications and refer names and contact details without resumes opens the door to a wider group of top talent who don’t necessarily have updated CV’s ready and available to submit.

However, many corporate recruiters are hesitant to dive in and forego resumes at the referral stage. Reasons range from…

Sourcing and Recruiting Passive Candidates

I was recently chatting with some HR professionals regarding the age-old question over whether active or passive candidates are better recruits. In my opinion, the recruiters preferring passive won the debate. Their argument was simply a matter of control. Sourcing for passive candidates puts the recruiter in the driver’s seat as they look for candidates with specific experience and/or skill sets.

Obviously there were other reasons why recruiters prefer passive candidates, but this…
