Hiring Managers Aren't Fluent In Interviewing

The interview is a culmination of efforts, not the kick off. It’s a result of the hiring team’s hard work, patience and persistence. It’s a key step toward making a hire and closing that req. And, for some reason, we throw interviewers and hiring managers in with 0 training.

Hiretual > A Pretty Rad Tool

So I’m just about 6 months into this whole recruiting thing.  Loving life so far.  I’ve nailed the acronyms for the most part, now I’m trying to focus on the tools.  Recruiters use a LOT of tools; Chrome extensions, plugins, apps, tickers, etc. (Anyone still have a pager?)  For someone like me who likes to be organized and “simple” when it comes to “things”-there are way too many freaking tools out there.

There’s a saying in my family about clutter,…

Are You Enabling Bad Behavior From Hiring Managers?

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures. That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree.

I don’t mean giving them training sessions on the illegal questions to ask during interviews. I don’t mean giving them training sessions of any kind.

I mean getting hiring managers to give timely feedback on candidates submitted for their review.

I…

The Top Five Strongest Interview Questions to Ask and The Importance of Understanding Aspirations

Depending on the hiring manager, recruiter or human resources department - interviewers may not necessarily have as much time to interview as they wish. I've seen interviews that last from thirty minutes to a chain of interviews lasting eight hours. Regardless, interviewers need to make sure to take advantage of the time spent interviewing and more often than not, they ask questions that don't necessarily give a real understanding of the candidate.…

Startups fight to Win Over HR Buyers

When we approach most Talent Acquisition and HR people that need to update or fill gaps in the company's computer science and information technology systems, they don't normally look at products and services offered by start-ups.
