Step Inside the Outhouse That IS LinkedIn

Way back when I first joined LinkedIn I was considered by many of my (regular, non-HR/recruiter) contacts to be an ambassador and promoter of the site. For several (perhaps hundreds) of my connections, I was their first. Less active networkers, distant colleagues, friends, or acquaintances would often comment to me…

12 Tips To Bring Out Your Inner Headhunter

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.

After some recent scheduling inconsistencies causing a few extra absences from the gym, I was pumped to get my sweat on today. My energy level was revved up from the brief break, so I was eager to take advantage of the situation to get back in the groove.

My workout routine started out strong and I…

The Blurred Lines Coming to HR

In 2013, Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell Williams brought us a song called "Blurred Lines" that  reached #1 on the charts for 12 consecutive weeks and sold 14.8 million copies. If you aren't familiar with the song itself, you probably are familiar with the stir it caused when Thicke…

Job boards Aren't Dying (but a lot of advertisers are doing their best to help kill them off)

I sometimes think people are thinking far too hard and becoming much too confused about the whole recruitment process and how to attract applicants.

Job boards to me are the ideal and only place I would look for jobs. Why? Because it is so bloody simple. I register and set up some search terms so that…

Technology and the numbers game is destroying creativity of thought.

While browsing Twitter recently I noticed an organisation that was offering an all in recruitment advertising service for less than £200 (about $335), so I got in touch. Not because I have any jobs to advertise, but because I was curious. Here's what they told me:

"We will write your advert ensuring it is…

The Flappy Birds Approach to Recruiting

Flappy Bird Recruiting Every few months or so, a new game app comes around that my 16 year old daughter and all of her friends go crazy over. They sit there in a deep stare, barely moving, likely not even breathing - then BOOM - an eruption of disappointment, followed by the resolve to do even better next time, even if it means subsidizing their time spent on homework or interacting with their parents. This goes on and on…

Life, Interrupted

This is the hardest blog post I’ve ever written. Some will say it’s too personal, and they’re probably right. My regular readers know this blog is a diary of sorts, I generally write about whatever is top of mind and damn the consequences. Others may feel…

Big, Expensive Recruiting ConventionsCreate MoreProblemsforRecruitersthanTheySolve

PROBLEM:

Most major recruiting conventions aren't for regular, workaday recruiters like US.

I've been to a few major recruiting conventions (and was even a panelist at one), but not many. Most of the people there seemed to be mainly senior corporate, staffing and recruiting professionals, aka, THE PEOPLE WHO…

5 habits of highly effective networkers, on both sides of the recruiting game

When companies begin to feel competitive pressure to match the productivity and profits of rival businesses, they often tackle the problem from the angle of the “war for talent.” The thinking is that by better attacking recruitment services, companies can win over more productive employees and edge their competitors through superior work.

No job, no expertise, SUCKA!

I get hit up to take a lot of surveys from a lot of different sources.

Sometimes vendors of various products or services lure survey respondents with offers to take a brief survey and receive a free copy of their latest white paper, special report or e-book about the “War for Talent” or some other nonsensical topic.

While I’m not particularly tempted to participate due to publication prizes at the end, I do have certain geeky curiosity about…
