What if your candidates were suddenly priceless?

Salary Looks Great, But What Are the Perks? Drawing On Company “Extras” to Captivate Candidates

It’s becoming ever-more critical that sourcers and recruiters know how to sell their company or client to candidates without getting stuck in a monetary loop. This means understanding all of the non-compensation extras which can help you acquire amazing talent – a vital skill when salary alone is not your strongest selling point. 

Start by creating a list which documents everything that might matter to candidates, and…

How to cement your reputation as a dorkola recruiter

Here we go… another horrible example of the type of cold call/emails some recruiters are sending.

I’ve never heard of the recruiter that sent this - who according to their LI profile, has been an agency recruiter since 2008 and has a whopping 36 connections. I don’t recall having any prior interactions with their agency and don’t know how they have my email address. What I do know is this a one of the lamest messages I’ve seen in quite a while.

Salary Negotiation: Framing negotiables correctly to unlock hidden value.

One of my favorite negotiation anecdotes is from Stuart Diamond’s book Getting More.  In it, he describes a scenario where a child would like to have a cookie, but the parent says no.  Undeterred, the child then asks if he can get half a cookie and the negotiation ensues.  I love this example…

3 ways to stop other companies taking your candidate

Sometimes, the client experience can feel a bit like buying a house. I put forward a great candidate, they do a perfect interview and are offered the job. Client and candidate are happy. At least until someone else comes along with a better offer and lo and behold – that client has been ‘gazumped’ by the lure of a higher salary.

This happened to one of my clients recently, with the candidate turning down a role (despite already having accepted it) for the sake of a few thousand pounds…

Move Beyond Salary – Money is Not A Viable Measure of Success

One of the most important jobs of a recruiter when making a match between candidate and client is salary expectations…or is it?  Salary is one component but what should be considered is the total compensation package + non tangibles such as culture and advancement opportunity.  However I am sure we can all recount those who get stuck on salary and that is often because salary reflects status and an interpreted success (along with job title).  We are after all social creatures and what others…

Compensation: Is it a Taboo Subject?

Discussion about money is often taboo, yet those who are uncomfortable talking about money upfront (both employer and employee) are starting their relationship off on the wrong foot.  The employer/employee relationship should not be a “guessing” game.  Good relationships are based on frank, honest communication.  And, the employer sets the stage first by being upfront about the salary range being offered.
 
Hiring managers are often afraid to show their cards first. …
