Rick Patzke is actually chief operating officer of USA Curling, but he is speaking about recruiting, in a roundabout way.

USA Curling takes … Continue

When accepting those rapidly accumulating random LinkedIn connection invitations, I generally also scroll down to peruse my timeline. In doing so, I often notice plenty of job opportunities being posted. Some of these are blasted out by automation tools and others are manually added as a person's LI… Continue

[Hello RBC - Long time no see]
‘Twas the night before Christmas and somewhere online
A recruiter was puzzling over which webpage to mine
With visions of revenues and managers content
This recruiter was no ordinary Clark Kent
Dark horn-rimmed glasses covered his eyes
He was better than any of the CIA’s spies

Looking for instances of names he could hoard
His Boolean strings would always… Continue

I was fortunate enough to attend @BillBoorman 's #TruAustralia event in Sydney last week, and one of the tracks centered around the qualities we believe make a great recruiter.

It got me thinking, what would I request next time I order a perfect… Continue

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…

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… Continue

Here's an area that I've always had trouble with: candidate ownership.
Scenario 1 Continue
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? …

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… Continue

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… Continue
