I recently interviewed Tim Keningham, Global Chief Strategy Officer and EVP at Ipsos Loyalty. Tim is co-author of a terrific new book titled The Wallet Allocation Rule. At one point, our conversation focused on recruiting, and more…Continue

Get a room full of recruiters and inevitably the subject of “passive versus active candidates” will come up. Active candidates are the ones who apply – the ones pursuing open roles by completing online applications and such. Passive, on the other hand, are talented folks who would…Continue
Working outside the typical 9 to 5 job can be great, but without a solid base of clients, you could end up just another starving artist. The purpose of entrepreneurship is to have financial freedom and a better work-life balance. In order to stay ahead of the game…Continue

My logic here is that every year before now, I’ve gone on ESPN and checked the predictions from the sportscasters. I have that little bit of hope that this could be the…Continue
Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…Continue

I’ll never forget how I was picked to be the social media expert at my first company. It was 2008 and I was working at a startup called VisualCV.com. I was hired as part of the sales team then moved to marketing when we realized we did in fact need a marketing team. Oh, startups.
Companies with a diverse workforce perform better. A 2009 study by McKinsey shows a connection between gender diversity and financial performance of a company: a company in which the management is gender diverse (more than 30% women in top management of the company), for example, had a 53 % better EBIT margin. So far so good.
So how do you get a more diverse workforce? Well, you probably already know it: it all depends on fair personnel selection. Fairness…Continue

Three phrase in every talent acquisition professionals’ vocabulary. It’s also the three areas where most HR leaders are trying to build business cases for new initiatives that will keep their company on the edge of hiring…Continue
I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard. I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income. Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my…Continue
With the proliferation of articles out there on interviewing, you’d be tempted to assume that interviewing a new client is easy, or at least a skill that every hiring manager has down pat. Even seasoned recruiters and HR professionals have trouble occasionally with interviews. In my position, I see lots of behind the scenes data about interviewing, particularly screening…Continue

We’ve come across this time and again, not only that; it has got us wondering what the hype is all about and for something as futile as this? You might also be puzzled about why this particular topic is given as much importance as it has. Well this is all about the changing trends that I’ve been mentioning countless times.
Any which ways with the internet now replacing the traditional methods of recruiting, keeping in pace with these new developments is just as important. As a result…Continue

It’s becoming ever-more critical that sourcers and recruiters know how to sell their company or client to candidates without getting stuck in a monetary loop. This means understanding all of the non-compensation extras which can help you acquire amazing talent – a vital skill when salary alone is not your strongest selling point.
Start by creating a list which documents everything that might matter to candidates, and…Continue
