It's time to take an aggressive position against this prevalent and disappointing trend of demeaning recruiters. It's almost become a fad for recruiters to write blogs about how recruiters suck, so that they can distinguish themselves against the others... their main 'selling point' being that they 'suck…Continue
I apologise in advance for the somewhat generic greeting, but it’s been ingrained in me from way back when I first got into recruitment.
I still remember all the role-plays and all the training manuals. Every scenario seemed to involve an interaction with “Mr…Continue
The historic act of headhunting is quite disturbing, yet fascinating. The literal practice of taking and preserving a person’s head after killing them, has advanced from ancient times to the 21st century.
Figuratively, the aggressive nature of the word has carried over to the modern day recruiting industry. In our …Continue

I too have been bored! Not just here, but everywhere online. Too much noise, nonsense and dumbification. There has been a severe suckage situation for quite some time now across multiple venues. Maybe I'm a fool for saying that (more than handful of times) here, over there, or anywhere. Or, perhaps...?

As far as I’m concerned, every professional can benefit from having a Twitter account. That doesn’t mean we all have to care what people are having for lunch, what hashtags are trending, or what celebrities are doing, thinking, or selling. It also doesn’t mean that we have to share (or overshare) the banalities of our own lives, amass hundreds or thousands of followers, or strive for a high…Continue

Here are nine things you should know if you want to be able to develop the keen instincts of the pros.
1. You Need to Have a Real Interest in…Continue
As a recruiter, it's important to be savvy and creative while searching for ideal job candidates. While there are plenty of candidates out there, corporate and business clients aren't paying money to have a recruiter find them just any employee. To dig through the pool and find the best possibilities, a recruiter must employ smart tactics for locating candidates that possess the skills, knowledge,…Continue

I’ve been staring at this blank page for weeks. In the past couple of months I’ve heard from two very different contacts that they’ve gotten pretty far in the recruiting process, only to have the recruiter disappear. They don’t call, they don’t write. They certainly don’t pick up the phone when it rings. Why is that?
I received an email from a job seeker I've crossed paths with both as a candidate and professional networking contact. He is smart, educated, and has a great deal of…Continue
I know we have all felt it, and I know we have all ignored it. I am referring to the feeling of a candidate we should just walk away from. We have put in all the work, and put ourselves in a point of no return. …Continue
Social Evidence. You may not have heard the term before, but it’s an increasingly important factor when it comes to getting ahead as an employer and snagging the right candidates. So just what does it mean? And how can recruiters use Social Evidence to determine who would be the best fit for their open positions?
