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,…

boards during the 2009 calendar year. The report is broken down by sector, providing details on how… Continue

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

Time to re invent the wheel?

Blimey, recruitment can be a tough business can't it! The last year or so has been a real challenge and having seen the use of recruitment agencies decline over the last 10 years (proportionately) - despite the overall growth in the market up to 2008 - its been on our minds that their must be a better way.



Given our business model hasn't changed since I popped out of the womb 40+ years ago I'm convinced it is time for change. For sure, continuing to try and compete in our existing… Continue

Is the recruitment database dead...?



Before I got into recruitment I spent a period of time developing and implementing technology solutions for the recruitment industry. For years ‘the database’ has been a key competitive edge, the USP for many recruitment businesses, especially those that operate in a niche. They guarded it fiercely and bragged about it in equal measure.



How ironic then that…

Recruitment and addictive gaming

Video link.

The above video is supreme. It has nothing directly to do with recruitment, but it made me think hard about recruitment, especially what would happen if there was more revolutionary, transformational and original thinking within the recruitment industry. It also follows on from my…

Recruiters turned Community Managers? I doubt it somehow...

Back in 1999, I was working on the development of a piece of software that allowed the recruiter to reach candidates that were coming together in newsgroups, on-line, to converse about their specialist subjects. It was while delving into this world of on-line groups that I had a light bulb moment - I realised that tapping into these communities, or 'special interest groups' as we referred to them back then, could be the future for creating a more robust and credible recruitment supply…
