Call it naivety but I had not realised the reputation recruiters, in particular IT recruiters, had in today’s market, they seem to be painted as the villains of the recruitment world. What seems…Continue

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.

This goes on and on…Continue

Any employee who has gone through the dramatic economic downturn that began in 2008 knows, for the last few years, the mantra has been, “keep your head down, keep working, and be glad you have a job.” During this period, employers instituted round after round of layoffs and the remaining employees continued to absorb more work…Continue

This week I took my youngest daughter to see Disney's latest, "Saving Mr. Banks." Truth be told, she wanted to see it far more than I did; I didn't expect to glean much from it at all. I'm pleased to report I was wrong. You might not think that a movie about the making of another movie, Mary Poppins,…Continue
Recruitment Process Outsourcing. This phrase burst onto the recruiting scene in the past 10-15 years or so, but the concept of it has been around for much longer. It was consistently used in the 1970’s during Silicon Valley’s very competitive market for high tech labor – it was very hard to find…Continue

The shift toward mobile recruitment makes sense. After all, nearly every person looking for a job has a mobile device, and more than two-thirds of them search for and apply to jobs using those devices. The job search has evolved from a stand-alone task to one of a dozen that…Continue

We’ve all seen them. Those annoyingly entertaining mimes who pull themselves down a sidewalk with an imaginary rope, or ride an imaginary escalator down behind a barricade. But the one they are probably the most well-known for is the imaginary box that has seemed to trap them. They can press on the walls, scream, pound their fists – but nothing penetrates that box!
If you are a HR…Continue

Recruiting new staff is challenging and stressful…To avoid making hiring mistakes, it’s best to plan ahead.

One of the things that has struck me over the years as a recruiter is the frequent reference to the industry as a ‘necessary evil’. While I don’t agree with the statement, I do understand where it comes from.
