Browsing Twitter one day I came across a pretty senior level role for a prominent UK organisation. Nothing unusual there. But, upon reading through the job advertisement it soon became apparent that no thought whatsoever had gone into its make-up. Indeed, this job post was over 200 lines long and…Continue

You know that terrifying moment when you look into the mirror after a haircut, and it is completely not what you wanted. Of course, you have to be politely British and say “I love it!”… but you absolutely hate it!! Or what about when tradesman say they are going to have your work done by next week… but one…Continue

The best recruiters I know are smart. Super smart!
I have no doubt that the ‘phone monkey’ recruitment consultants exist, in fact are probably quite common. They say they know your market, promise you the moon and then can’t deliver. Why? Probably because they are…Continue

Looking from the outside in, sometimes it seems like hiring manager versus recruiter is an epic, long-fought battle. I can almost picture part of the Hunger Games, where they're all released into the forest to start their survival. Let the games begin!

I'd finished work for the week early last Friday so decided, as an experiment, to throw an offer out on Twitter - I'd write a free bit of recruitment copy for the first recruiter to get in touch with me and send me an existing job ad or description. I didn't hold my breath, and to be…Continue

Some of you will be aware that I am not shy of bemoaning the fact that there are so many poor job posts littering the online space. You only have to visit a job board and pick a few ads at random to find cut & pasted job descriptions, phrases like "Our client are looking", hideous…Continue
This is definitely embarrassing to admit but I learned how to ride a bike pretty late in life. By late, I mean I learned on an adult bike when I was about 12 because someone pushed me down a hill. Hold your giggles, please.
I’ll never forget the exhilaration of realizing “hey! I’m riding…Continue

Entelo made this video about recruiting emails their developer received and I thought it worth sharing. Great stuff in here...if you have done it, stop.
And yes, mistakenly posted twice but I laughed both times.
Recruiters send alot of emails, and they aren't always perfect. We asked our Engineers…
I was speaking to a company owner last week who let me know he spent over $125,000 a year in job postings on major job boards. I was FLOORED! When I asked him about the quality of the candidates he got from those ads, he said that he received average or less-than-average candidates but that “I use it for the…Continue

I’ll never forget how I was picked to be the social media expert at my first company. It was 2008 and I was working at a startup called VisualCV.com. I was hired as part of the sales team then moved to marketing when we realized we did in fact need a marketing team. Oh, startups.
Finding a top sales performer in today’s recruiting market can be a daunting task. Every employer is seeking the professional with the best performance record, hoping to increase revenue for their company. Realistically, however, these top performers are…Continue
