So, when a recruiter reaches out to me for…

Sourcing Fees Paid to a Recruiter?

As I settle into my corporate recruiting role, I am assessing the services that we are currently receiving from our third party recruiting agencies.   

I have been considering modifying our currently model of recruiting agency engagement to only include sourcing of candidates.  My team already conducts a thorough interview (prior to the hiring manager), sits in on the hiring manager's interview, conducts the reference checks and negoitates the offer directly with the…

The Search Engine for Recruiting 2.0

The days of posting-and-praying are quickly coming to an end.  Much of the best talent has never submitted a resume, never looked on a job board, and has never been unemployed.  They rely heavily on recruiters finding them, or job referrals from within their networks.   These people aren’t hunting work...you have to hunt them.

10 Sourcing Complexities

I have been asked to list the "Sourcing complexities and pain points" (especially  in IT recruiting, but not just). Here are the 10 points I came up with.

Add yours?

How's the New Gig?

The first impression a new hire has of a company is based on their experiences from the date they accept an offer to the first couple weeks of employment.  New employment is a HUGE deal and often becomes the conversation starter for most individuals.  How many times after you inform a close friend or family member about your new position did you hear, “How is your new job?”  Most often, the answer to this question is formulated based a person’s experiences during the first few weeks of…
