Many years ago I was sent along to an external training course. A group of us had supposedly been identified as ‘rising stars’ and the seminar…Continue

From time to time all 3rd party recruiters face it. Show me the money! Whether it is a late paying client or one that disputes the placement, issues over commissions is not a new topic. A quick search on the RBC will identify numerous blogs and forum discussions on this topic, but I think the…Continue

The economy is recovering, but there are still millions of people desperately searching to find a job. The irony is that many jobs are remaining unfilled. Why? The employers say that it is because they cannot find enough qualified applicants to fill them! The recruitment vendors say it is because the good people are hard to find and they have responded by developing a wide assortment of cutting edge tools to help employers find the good people. On the other hand, veterans from the old…Continue
Employers seldom complain about the services of headhunters, it’s the headhunters’ fee that has become their pain point.
A few months ago I was a presenting at a seminar to about 35 business owners and HR professionals. The topic of the presentation was “How to Recruit like a Headhunter” and during the presentation I made the statement “if you are not using headhunters as your primary recruitment weapon, then you are not hiring the best talent in-the-market”…Continue
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…
For some bizarre reason, I seem to attract more than anyone’s fair share of random inquiries, peculiar requests for assistance and other assorted mystery messages on a regular basis. One such recent item that caught my attention was the following snippet from a person presumably running some sort of “recruiting” service…
As you will notice, this was a generic message sent to my email but not addressed to me by name – probably because I was only one of the thousand or so…Continue
To find something you are passionate about is a gift.
To find something that grants you fulfillment and reward is simply priceless.
There are researchers and scientists dedicating their lives for the opportunity to find cures and promote a better state of living. Doctors and nurses comforting the bodies and souls and extending life so that we may see our grandchildren grow and smile. Teachers who see reward every day in the glow of a child’s eye when they realize they have made a…Continue
Joan was frustrated. A week had gone by since the hiring manager interviewed her top candidate; but since then, she couldn’t get him to return her calls or respond to her emails.
In the meantime, her candidate’s attitude was starting…Continue

Does this title resonate with you? If so, it’s probably because you’re either looking for a job or recently spoke to a candidate that is really frustrated by how long they’ve been looking. In either case, it makes complete sense for someone who has been out of work for a while to be feeling frustrated, angry, hopeless or depressed.
Let’s start with a candidate scenario. While trying to find the perfect candidate, you come across a beautiful resume. You get the person on…Continue

Just a quick thought here for us split recruiters.
Once the handoff has taken place – it is very important to let the recruiter who is working directly with the client also be the one who the candidate talks to.
Why is this? I have found the phrase “too many cooks in the…Continue
Oh the wonderful land of agreements between clients and recruiters...I am not sure the yellow brick road is paved in gold on this journey. To respect the identity of those involved no names will be used, but this story I am sure is more common then we recruiters like. The “fingers crossed behind the back” handshake on exclusive recruitment contracts – oh joy of joy!…Continue
With trepidation, I dialed the telephone number and asked to be connected to a candidate that I’ve been
working with for the past three months. Upon hearing the candidate’s name and
without hesitation, the receptionist replied: “Oh, he’s no longer with the
As I hung up…Continue
