First Impressions Count Online

I am constantly amazed at how little money most professionals are willing to spend to promote and market themselves. Like this kind of investment — investing in yourself —  is crass, egotistical, and over-indulgent. Our actions and accomplishments speak for themselves, right? We’re sick of hearing about…

Should You Pass Up a Candidate Just Because of His/Her Online Reputation?

Everything we do online matters. This has always been true, but it's never been as important as it is now. What makes this feel almost patently unfair is that, in spite of our actions mattering more now, we actually have less control over how we are perceived online. Thanks to social media, and a few other factors (not the least among them being Internet trolls), people can say just about anything they want about us online.





What are they saying about you today?…

What a Social Media Profile Can Tell You About a Potential Employee

Many a job has been lost due to revelations found in social media profiles that shared just a bit too much for the employer’s taste. According to a recent survey conducted by Jobvite, “nearly 3 out of 4 hiring managers and recruiters check candidates’ social profiles – 48% always do so, even if they are not provided.”

It’s clear that the internet is a very useful tool for…

On An Others-Based Reputation

I'm a no excuses kind of guy, I really am. I love sports (die-hard Celtics fan, born and raised in So Cal), and I'm just not the kind of fan to blame losses on officiating or injuries as some fans do. Bad call at the end of the game cost you the W? Maybe you should've built up a bigger lead before the end of the 4th quarter. Your starting center goes down with a knee injury in Game 6 of the Finals (a la Kendrick…

How Virtual Footprints Affect Employment

How Virtual Footprints Affect Employment

Typically, an individual seeking a job prepares, as is recommended, in the following ways: developing a valuable skill set; networking with professionals in his or her field of interest; writing a succinct, yet captivating resume; researching the organization for an interview, if such an offer is extended. However, many applicants neglect to consider a fifth, equally significant…

Lazy Recruiters

It has been a week since #truLondon and we covered a lot of content.  Something that stood out for me or made me think, and there was plenty of things that stood out in the memory bank. I’m going to kick off with one I’d love to hear your thoughts:

Candidate Experience - the REST of the story...

About a month ago I blogged about a job seeker I was working with.  Find the story here.  Well as it turns out, Joe did continue through the process with Company A and B.  Here's how it went down...

 

Company B did everything they said they would.  There were some hiccups along the way; a couple of dates changed, but ultimately he did fly to their offices and was…

Everything I needed to know about Recruiting I learned in Kindergarten.

My kids have always summed up my career in this fashion: “People pay mommy lots of money to find other people”.  They have never questioned the logic of this.  Mommy plays a mean hide n seek.  Now that my baby has graduated from Kindergarten, I have come to realize that really, some of the most important elements of recruiting he has now mastered.  Since school let out I’ve been watching him interact with his friends – and here’s what I’ve found...

Satisfaction Guarenteed

Right off the top, no, I didn’t just swear. These two words are thrown around daily under a multitude of reasons; but how many people actually back it up or even mean it as much more than a catch phrase or cliché?  We all deal with people, either working with, or working for; and regardless of our job-identity; in one way or another we always defer to those two words in almost every close.  How do you guarantee satisfaction? Have you listened intently to the customer or to the supervisor and…

Removing Recruiting's Wrong Reputation

Let’s face it. Buying a used car at a lot has to be one of the worst thought of experiences in anyone’s existence. The salesperson is just after that big commission and fast talks you about any car your eye lands on even if said car looks like it went down with the Titanic. Well, you might…

Why do you all hate your jobs?



This might be a bit untrendy, and I’m not expecting to get featured anywhere for it, but I’m going to say it anyway. I think most Recruiters and most H.R. professionals do a pretty good job. I also think that most care about their candidates and clients and add plenty of value to the recruitment process.…

Industry Leaders or Industry Frauds

The term Industry leader is thrown around far too often in the staffing industry without merit. If everyone is number one then who is #14? Are all agencies tied? Of course not. So next time someone says that they work for the best or one of the best ask for proof.



How many billable consultants do they currently have in the area?



What is the tenure of the account manager or recruiter that you are working with? Don't fall for terms like average, combined etc.. Be specific to… Continue

4 Attributes That Recruiters Should Try And Develop In 2010

I’ve been reading some excellent forecasts for trends and developments in 2010 that certainly excite and encourage me to think that this could be a very interesting and challenging year. I’m too much of a social media and technology amateur though to try my own predictions!



I do know, however, that recruiters will need a whole different set of skills, goals and targets if they are to succeed and profit from all the predicted advancements and developments.

Corporate Social Responsibility Base Camp

I rarely ever hear of medium to large sized SMEs ever attempting to develop any kind of 'employment brand' or being bothered about their employer reputation. I also hardly ever see any evidence of it in any of the recruitment communications that these companies put out.



Amazingly, they then compound the problem by treating those applicants who do respond to their self-indulgent job announcements/Internet postings, with very little respect. These applicants are people who invariably… Continue
