Ask a recruiter why they do what they do, and you're likely to get a wide variety of answers. Among them may be:
- "I sort of just fell into recruitment"
- "I'm an extrovert, this was a good fit"
- "I didn't want to do sales"
- "I like helping people"
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 fully recognize that I would not be where I am today without countless numbers of people who have invested a portion of their lives into mine. A great example would be a guy named Kenneth Johnson. I've never met him, but I attended a private school from 6th - 12th grades. My mom was working three jobs after having… Continue

A thought provoking article by LSE Professor Eleanor O'Higgins in the latest edition of Accountancy Ireland caught my eye. (This is a link to the e-version of AI, so it may take some time to load). For anyone that's interested, here is my take.
I don't disagree with Professor O'Higgins' answer. I disagree with her question.
In effect she is asking "is executive pay… Continue

Would you like an increase in your salary? Let’s say a 20 percent increase and a big bonus. Sounds good doesn’t it?
Who doesn't want to make more money? Before you march into your boss’s office demanding an increase in pay you need to first take a step back and develop a game plan to approaching your… Continue

When was the last time you said thank you? If you can’t remember, then it’s been too long. I just started reading a book written by someone that I’ve met and have a great deal of respect for regarding their leadership. The book is… Continue

Pay for Performance is something everyone always strives to achieve. Whether it’s buying a new car, being Theo Epstein (the General Manager of the Boston Red Sox) or placing an advertisement for your company, you are always seeking ultimate value you are receiving from the resources that you dedicate to a specific commodity. The more value for each dollar you can earn, the better. This is especially true in this economy when you are looking to recruit top talent to your… Continue

Is it just us or do so many people seem to be changing jobs at the moment? Some didn’t have a choice, of course ... need we mention a certain former Prime Minister and his inauspicious and involuntary removal from government? But aside from the country’s Very Top Job, many ‘commoners’ are changing jobs for a variety of… Continue

Before you ask for a raise, the most important thing you need to remember is that you need a reason for asking for one. An employer is not just going to hand out extra money to you because they like you – you need to give them a compelling reason to do so.
Basically, you need to give them something that exemplifies your hard work and that shows you are a positive asset to the company. Think of a few ways for doing so – below are just a few examples:
Arriving on time… Continue

I met with my new Travel client 4 months ago in NYC, the appointment was set up by email.
The meeting went well so I thought, they needed my services they are a small French.Travel Agency.
This was strange she did not call me on the phone, I like to talk on the phone at least once before a meeting.
I decided to take a chance and meet her so I did.
She made me link to her Facebook account before the placement was made she contacted me mostly by email. I thought it was nice so… Continue

You know what that means, right?
It's Equal Pay Day. (Please, you know I didn't mean that that 4/20)
Today is the day - we're told - that "symbolizes how far into 2010
women must work to earn what men earned in 2009".
Akin to "Tax Day" (the day you supposedly have to work until you make enough Continue

For the past 15 years, the job board industry has been dominated by the ‘pay per posting‘ revenue model: an employer purchases a job posting (and sometimes resume access or other add ons).
Yet there’s another model that has been around a while: ‘pay per response‘. In other words, you post your job, and when job seekers apply to your job, you pay for each application.
On the surface, it seems that pay per response would be more attractive to most employers – after all, if… 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?
Candidates and recruiters can sign up themselves and define their profile/job posting. Included is a broad set of match criteria to automatically match candidates with jobs. Furthermore people can… Continue

We are living in tight times. Wasteful expenses on personal pride and prestige can now come back to hurt you in a big way.
Thain's office remodel, regardless of its genesis and no matter how much or little he personally cared about it matter little now; it might have just bought him a ticket to a small room for a few years......
Conspicious consumption was already looking a little shaky, but it may become downright toxic in the next few years. I remember when I was first… Continue

Every successful professional can recall the exact moment when the "seed" to succeed was planted by their mentor.
In most cases it was that moment you and someone kind enough to help your career forged a bond in mentorship. That one person you fondly remember as your first (and maybe only) mentor was the catalyst that woke you up to the potential that lay within your mind and soul. Your mentor was the person who showed you what you could become with effort and attentive skills to… Continue
