That’s why we will have a closer look at two selection tools which have proven to be very useful in everyday recruiting: online assessment center andpre-recorded video interviews.

As we approach the end of 2014, I wanted to share with you an interesting trend in hiring demand this year. While many times we think that the competition for talent is in populous areas - like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and the Silicon Valley - we found that hiring grew significantly more in smaller, less… Continue

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic Rankin-Bass holiday special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Despite its’ age, this stop-motion special still appeals to kids today and certainly evokes nostalgia amongst those who don’t believe in Santa any longer (sorry if I just ruined that for you).
There is a time and place for nostalgia and re-exploring our past,… Continue

The holiday season is in full swing, which means the sidewalks and malls of America are packed to the gills with shoppers looking for that perfect gift. If you survived getting trampled at Best Buy on Black Friday, you’re likely amongst the throng yourself.
But this year, as has become increasingly the case, the crowds at the malls are probably a little thinner than usual as online shopping… Continue

There are problems in using “predictors” of suitability for open positions within a company. Hunter and Hunter (1984) showed that interviewing is one of the worst predictors of future job performance. Using reference checks (.26), education (.22) or biographical data (.37) did not improve the odds too favorably. In fact, even the best predictor, test scores, came out at .57. We could make the… Continue

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National Speakers Association was denied the opportunity to bring his powerful message to a University Campus… Continue

One side of my family is from Montreal. They are proud French Canadians through and through. Some of my cousins don't speak English.

The world of contingent, agency recruiting is extremely competitive. The salesperson that visits clients will usually have a nice suit on and promise you the world, but as the saying goes, don’t ask how the sausage is made.
