Is someone considering the opportunity you’ve just presented to them? When your phone rings – or email buzzes – what are the chances it is someone saying “Let’s move ahead.”? If the chances are good, then keep doing what you’re doing. If not, you better change something pretty quick!
Am I old school? You bet. I’ve survived. Not only have I survived – I’m living the American Dream! I say this not to boast but to make a rather simple…

) to references and many other "old school" techniques. Here is what I realized; Nothing today is really NEW!
Think about it; what "inventions" are really new? Data storage; sure the way we store the data has changed from… Continue

How to Land a Job Fresh out of School

I got into a conversation with the guy standing on a step-ladder changing light bulbs while I waited for my wife as she browsed the merchandise in a boutique clothing store.
Being the old school recruiter that I am, I quickly discovered that his name was Fabian, he was the owner of the store, it was newly opened store in the area, and we were his very first customers.
The reason why I am blogging about this conversation is because this guy said a few things that has some… Continue

Although SEO seems to be the new buzz in recruiting web 2.0 strategies, it has actually been used for years as a tactic to increase sales for online businesses.
SEO and how it fits into the recruiting industry is greatly misunderstood. I completely agree with Marvin in that SEO is not enough
, but it makes me wonder who said that it was the golden ticket to begin with.
SEO Is… Continue

Learnings that last a lifetime.
I did work experience as a 16 year old Grad 10 student. I dutifully put on my best outfit, nice shirt, pressed pats, skinny leather tie (it was the fashion) and turned up at the local city council to spend time in their Accounts Department and to be honest... I was bored to death, no one would talk to me (unless I instigated conversation, which as a young boy in a world of grown ups, some of which were parents of my friends, wasn't easy), they gave me… Continue

So on to the weekend!
So by this time I have have already received 3 job offers. Of course, they are for 100% commission roles, so those are extremely easy to offer since there is no risk on the part of the employer in many ways. The strange part is 2 of them were offers and I hadn't even spoken to anyone yet! How strange is that?
