Is SEO simply another Y2K? (Or how Shakespeare would have looked a right idiot if he were around today)

A slightly contentious blog this week, but hey, it's all about opinions. This is mine about SEO....

Hands up who remembers the Y2K ‘problem’, or the Millennium bug, as it was sometimes known? I do, as I had several clients who made a lot of money out of placing contractors into the City to ward off the Y2 evil that was set to haunt companies… Continue

Job Post Optimization: What are your Candidates Searching For?

Today, reaching people on the web is all about content. Not only does your content need to be well presented but it has to be relevant to the group you are targeting (and you have to show this relevance in a hurry). The biggest benefit of this content generation though is that it’s shifted the focus of how you acquire customers from having to go out and find customers to having customers find you. This is what is called…

The survival of recruitment, work and the world depends on this face

This is the face captured by photographer Phil Toldano and explained in the excellent Ted talk (embedded below) by game designer Jane McGonigal. It captures the emotion of gaming. Toldano set up a camera in front of gamers while they were playing. McGonigal in the video alerts us to the subtle nuances in this photo:

the sense of urgency, a little bit of fear, but intense concentration, deep deep…

The best recruiters take a drill to client meetings (or how cultural 'fit' is important too)

Some recruiters remind me of my house hunting days. I’d go to great effort to describe what I was looking for - the area, the price range, what I definitely wasn’t interested in etc. and lo and behold I would be bombarded for weeks afterwards with details of properties that were too big or too small, in a different location or not in my price range. I often think it must feel a bit like that for…

Own The Close; Increase your close rate through candidate prep, not coaching

We've all worked with tough to please Hiring Managers. They're the ones that can find flaws in any and all candidates you bring to the table. Candidates that are rock-stars in phone-interviews or meeting with a recruiter face-to-face crumble in the presence of these managers.

When dealing with these managers,…

A job description isn't a sales tool and never will be.

For reasons best known to themselves, many recruiters bemoan the absence of a decent job description and person spec from a client. I agree it’s frustrating when what you get is a series of seemingly unrelated one liners in terms of a job description and just the basic facts about the skills and experience you need in order to do the role, but, the emphasis should be on you, the recruiter to eke out the information from your client that will sell the job, not… Continue
