Something Interesting Happened Today.
Another recruiter focused on something stupid and quietly eroded his corporate recruiting department. Unfortunately, the only person who noticed was me.
So, I thought I'd tell you about it. Do what you will with the information, but I know one thing. There is never one person doing something. If it happens in our office, it's happening to…

By the level of noise and chatter focused on the mobile recruiting trend over the past several years one would think that corporate talent acquisition teams have made great strides in adopting and deploying these solutions. But the results of our recently released 2014 Jibe Talent Acquisition Survey tells another story.
In our survey, our independent research partner Kelton Global asked more than 300 in-house recruiting… Continue

Last week, a good friend asked me, "What exactly do you do as a Sourcer? Is it the same thing you did as a Recruiter? How exactly does it work?"…

As a talent acquisition professional, would it concern you to find out that 19% of job seekers would rather spend an entire day at the DMV than go through the frustrations associated with applying for a job online? How about 22% saying they’d rather speak in front of 100 strangers? Or 12% saying they’d rather get a root canal or go skydiving without any training? Those are some pretty damning data points about the level of frustration associated with the job application process today, but… Continue

There’s something rather entertaining about retro slang and sayings. Perhaps it’s due to the over-saturation (as if it’s been raining cats and dogs or ice buckets) or overuse of the latest industry buzzwords or pure exhaustion from the endless auto-play videos of any fashionable Internet fad.

If you’re like most recruiters, chances are that doing more with less is a part of your job description. But just because you’re not a big spender or big brand doesn’t mean you can’t recruit like one.
So today,… Continue

Thousands of U.S. companies rely on the services of professional recruiting firms to fill employment needs. Some companies choose not to work with recruiters for various reasons – in house HR, specificity, budgeting concerns – but there are plenty more good reasons to bring in a professional recruiting team to help with staffing needs.
Here are a few instances your business should consider using a recruiter to help meet its hiring…

Usually when a recruiter contacts someone via LinkedIn, it’s because s/he saw something of interest on that person’s profile. Then there’s THIS GUY that apparently liked what he saw enough to plagiarize… Continue

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… 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

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.

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… Continue

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… Continue
