Why I'm loving my new RPO job

I recently joined a Global RPO solution onsite at an investment bank.  Making the leap from agency, especially as an established consultant where I managed to build an innovative sourcing desk servicing an entire business; into a new position and environment was a huge risk for me. 

I went with my gut and chose carefully, selecting an RPO that had a…

SourceCon 2013 - Day 1

The only thing cooler than having a conference in your home city is to have it hosted by your employer. I was lucky enough to snag a seat to the hottest sourcing conference around and the first time ever in Seattle. My day started out like any other, except instead of heading to my office I got to join 400+ recruiters and sourcers from across the country at The Mixer. Need a haircut? New…

What are your thoughts on....candidate ownership.

Here's an area that I've always had trouble with: candidate ownership.

Scenario 1

There are "competitors" that jam resumes into the ATS just to cover ownership. They don't qualify candidates, they don't have candidate consent....they are simply blocking others from being candidate "owners".



Do you see this occurring as well?  …

Wow! eGrabber has a patent on how to find emails on the internet

A VERY big shout of congratulations goes out to Chandra Bodapati (et al) for receiving a patent on "methods and systems for determining email addresses." How cool is that?! I hope, hope, hope to interview him online about this soon. (fingers crossed)

In the meantime, I can only speculate what this means to all of the other recruiting tools on the market today. Will they have to pay Chandra a…

Is there any responsibility to educate or enlighten your hiring managers?

A friend and former colleague recently told me about a frustrating conversation with a recruiter. Come to think of it I rarely, if ever, hear from anyone telling me about a fantastic interaction with a recruiter. Why is that?

Anyway, my friend saw one of their connections “like” that recruiter’s LinkedIn status about a search they were working on. Thinking it looked appealing, my friend…

Recruiters: To Get Great Candidates, You Must be Relevant

I can't even keep track of how often I get recruited for positions in business development and sales, but it’s gotten to the point where I don’t even want to respond anymore. Sure, the required skill sets are similar to mine, and I could probably be successful in them if I were to make a career move. But my entire work history is in marketing. I love marketing, and anyone who spent the time to look over my background would notice that.

So, when a recruiter reaches out to me for…

Sourcing Fees Paid to a Recruiter?
