Improving candidate experience is a must if you want to win in a war for talent. The current job market is candidate driven, which means you don’t pick talent anymore. Talent picks you. That’s why it is absolutely necessary to start improving…Continue

Incredibly, we’ve seen a couple of situations lately where a new hire walked off of the job after or even during the first day.
One of the hiring managers asked, “who does that?” The answer, of course, is someone that you don’t want to employ. Walking off the job without having a conversation with your supervisor says a lot.
Character matters and it’s impossible to hide from.Continue

Building a great team is not easy. There are no shortcuts. Recruiting plans tend to be more fly by the seat of your pants in nature. I need this, get it for me now.
A great recruiting plan focuses on continuously finding the best talent you can for all of the roles you need to fill. If you can’t be patient on a given role, you may have to settle. But overall, the effort needs to be sustained and resilient. Top talent doesn’t always move easily and doesn’t always move now. …Continue

One adage in baseball is that you never have enough arms. What it means is that pitching is important and good pitching is always at risk. One of your pitchers might get injured, or might flake out. A minor hitch may cause one of them to lose the strike zone. A situation can come up where you just need a slightly different skill set, and then you realize that you need that skill set regularly.
Same thing in recruiting. If you’ve built a great team and they are performing…Continue

Company culture is something that describes the company in the best way. It shows the qualities of an organization, and the candidates are always supposed to follow that culture. It consists of the vision, mission, and goals of the company, the candidates must reach in the given time.…Continue

Recruiting is not an easy task at all. Being a recruiter is so tough, as one needs to handle a hundred things at once. There are times that the recruiters miss out on the best talent, and there are times when they do not figure out the people who are not worth it at all.
The candidates nowadays have become so clever, that they think that if they fake their resume, no one would figure anything out and they would get the job easily. But what they don’t…Continue

We like to use the term passive candidate. We don’t want to hire someone who is looking for a job, we want passive candidates.
But it’s not an either or thing. A truly passive candidate isn’t taking your call. They aren’t open to a change. At some point, things may change for that candidate and they become open to at least talking, possibly considering a change.
What you want is a partially passive candidate or a mostly passive candidate.
Someone who is good and doesn’t…Continue

You know the guy who is always joking around, even while working? What about the one that is always serious, focused, no time for additional conversation? He’s too this. She’s too that. They don’t fit the company culture. Unless they do.
Your company culture is your culture and successful teams don’t all have the same culture. Talented people in the wrong culture won’t thrive. Not like they will in the right culture. If you’re building a great business, the candidate pool is limited…Continue

Millennials are now the largest generation in the work force and they are largely underpaid. That says a lot.
Hiring younger, less experienced, workers to replace more experienced, more expensive, workers is nothing new. It’s a business decision that in a lot of cases makes the most sense. The numbers will tell if accomplishing nearly as much with a much lower salary will improve the bottom line. And, of course, the less expensive employee may improve to the point where they are…Continue

You check references to see what you can find out about a candidate that you are seriously considering. How hard do they work? Are they reliable? Skills, Character, History. What does their overall brand say about them?
If there are problems or red flags you are more likely to pass. If the brand is strong, a positive compelling story, you are more likely to hire.
The story is the same from the…Continue

Recruiting firms and HR recruiters agreed that they prefer hiring a candidate who possesses the right attitude and good work ethic rather than a glowing CV. No doubt, knowledge of the job is important but it can be learned while working especially at junior level. But to find someone who fits perfectly according to the work culture of an organization is very difficult. Culture fit is very important for the hiring process.
Organizations are investing a…Continue
