As a rule most hiring managers do not understand recruiting. They think all we do is look at Monster or Hotjobs (which was just bought by monster) or the other databases and find people with no problems. They do not understand the amount of work that goes into the sourcing part of recruiting. One way I have found that has helped me educate the hiring manager, is to arrange sourcing sessions with them. Make an appointment to meet with them and talk about the opening and source. You will be… Continue

The Apple AppStore has over 100,000 iPhone applications. Verizon's Droid is a a few months old and Google just launched the Nexus One. Microsoft has Windows Mobile and the Palm has the hot new Palm Pre. The current king of Mobile Business is the Blackberry (RIM), but it is losing ground fast. Apple, Microsoft, Google, Palm, Verizon & RIM all going after the same market and that makes for great headlines.The… Continue

What are you doing to measure your social recruiting efforts? Because if you aren't doing anything to measure them and you're telling the world that social recruiting works then you're just winging it. Or if you aren't putting any effort in place to try and account for your efforts while squaking to your peers and colleagues that it doesn't work - well, you're equally as… Continue

Well guys (gals too) – how does that sound? Weird? Unreasonable, so on…. Search Engines like Google and Yahoo has just figured out that it is possible too. And why not? It is web 2.0 and everything is so easy.
I recently put my name on google.com “sarang brahme” and was surprised to see my name in their sponsored listing section. For people who do not know what is sponsored listing in Google (popularly called ADWORDS in SEO language) – these are the paid listings which have been… Continue

2pm we'll be discussing how to build and manage a sourcing team

I recently read a blog which talked about how social media and networking sites were going to be the death of the recruiter. I disagree, if anything I believe the role of recruiter has become ever more important, but has also changed.
The argument in this blog was that the internet has enabled accessibility to candidates that would never have been possible before the internet revolution. Therefore by posting a few ads and doing some poking around on LinkedIn HR team can now source… Continue

I find Twitter
fascinating. I see it as many different things ranging from a search engine to an instant messaging device to a blogging platform to a time suck. And while these are just a few of the things that I myself have used it for - I love them all.
One of the first things recruiters have been struggling to understand since it's release is if… Continue

How often do we do things that just feel right? We don’t know why we do them, we probably can’t explain why but we just know it’s right. It’s been the same in recruitment for years. Recruitment consultants will tell you they get a gut feel when meeting a candidate; that they somehow know when they find someone who is right for their client, but how reliable is ‘gut feel’?
I must admit, I definitely do experience gut feel. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a woman – after all aren’t we… Continue

Last time I wrote for Recruitingblogs.com, I suggested you pull your sourcing skeleton out of the closet. This month I have rehab on my mine. And that Amy Winehouse song is echoing...
Rehab occurs to me because I run. Or lately, I hobble. Had a series of minor injuries this year with the last being a pulled hip muscle. Every time I get an injury, there's a rest period, rehab and rebuilding my running program, from square one. I hate it. I like to run, it helps me focus and is a huge… Continue

Over the last two days I connected with 6 long time friends and former colleagues in corporate recruiting. A few of them have been clients and a few others are professionals in the corporate recruiting space that I routinely chat with about various issues, challenges, strategies and tactics. Pretty much these are open discussion sessions where I learn a ton from each of them and… Continue

I am sure someone else has already figured it out but I just did and was excited to share. I realized that when I inmail someone with a private profile, once you send them an inmail you can go back in to review that inmail and Linkedin actually adds in the first name of that person to the message. Gold mine! That just made it so much easier to call in to the company. I have a list of first names and job titles! Yeah!!!

It was almost a year ago when I was digging through various search strings running in an uncountable number of tabs within my browser that it struck me how powerful the browser could really be for recruiters willing to take advantage of it. Of course at that point I was only thinking about bookmarks and Firefox
plugins, so of course the little monster that resides inside my head just pointed to toolbars and… Continue
