Within any organization there are a number of things that you take for granted as being true in your process and strategy. Things that in thought may not appear to be a big deal but given a second look may have a considerable impact on your overall results. And in many cases, this is not done with intent but happens because you expect your technology and process to accurately handle these areas. The real problem is that some organizations don’t even realize they have a problem.

As an industry, we are making huge strides in the way we measure and evaluate our recruitment marketing strategies. While efficiency metrics like time to fill and cost per hire are still part of the evaluation process, quality metrics that are tracking where organizations are finding their most qualified candidates and hires are becoming integral to strategic decision making.
However, even with these metrics there is room for growth. Over the past few years, there’s a push to move…Continue

Are you recruiting an expert or a manager to a critical role in your organisation? Are you considering getting professional help externally, but have no established recruitment partner? If you don’t know where to start, ask these five questions to make a quick selection of one or two final options to work with on the recruitment.

I have just been in Atlanta at the global sourcing conference that is known as #SourceCon. The event gathers all of the best sourcers from around the world, and the presenters, participants, drinking partners and general company I kept were full of advice, tips and a few hacks thrown in. I’m better for the experience of having been there.
The second keynote of the day really stood…Continue

Interviews are often listed as one of the most stressful situations in which a person can find themselves - along with moving house and having a baby. This does seem a little disproportionate though; an interview, after all, is little more than a conversation between two or three people that is probably over in less than two hours. Yet we continue to worry about them, losing sleep over what questions might be asked or what would happen if your mind went blank.
Admittedly, a lot might…Continue

We've had a lot of conversations with recruiting organizations over the past few months about their recruiting processes and strategies. And one feeling that keeps coming up is that they feel like they are becoming too process oriented. They feel hijacked by their requisition based…Continue

With the information boom, candidates expect employers to provide them with the necessary information in order to make an informed decision on their careers. And while this happens via social recruiting, conversations with employees and information found on the internet (whether that’s sites like Glassdoor or message boards), a lot of the impression that candidates have for your organization can be gathered through your Career Site. And in many cases, it represents your…Continue

Malcolm Gladwell's book, Blink: the power of thinking without thinking, (Penguin, 2005) provided me with some fantastic insights highly relevant for recruiters, specifically when Gladwell explores the ‘less is more' syndrome.
Gladwell asserts that in certain circumstances, receiving more information about an issue can cause you to become more inaccurate or ineffective in your response to, or conclusions about, that issue with a corresponding increase in your…Continue

All joking aside, the current state of the recruitment industry is no laughing matter. It is a world lacking any form of entry barrier and as bizarre as something directed by David Lynch himself! HR departments so it seems, were put in place with the sole purpose of fending off hordes of thick skinned recruiter-goblins, whose only…Continue

They broke open a new vertical, won massive accounts and were on track to hit 200% of quota. Management was singing your praises and you were already raising next year's targets.
