1982 Relived

Time travel is possible! How do I know? Because last night, I was transported back to 1982 as I went to see Journey in concert.

Back in 1982, just a freshman in high school at the time, I went to see Journey. They were my favorite band and Steve Perry was my favorite singer. Now, at the time, my…

Hiring mistakes to avoid

Recruiting new staff is challenging and stressful…To avoid making hiring mistakes, it’s best to plan ahead. So apart from advertising the vacancies, looking at the time it takes to hire, getting the right number and quality of applicants and dealing with the admin burden, what else do employers need to look at? If handled properly, the hiring process can deliver a constant…

Not All Recruitment Analytics are Equal

If you’ve been to a HR conference the past few months, you more than likely have heard analytics and big data mentioned at least once or twice (and probably more than that.)  And for good reason.  Analytics represent a way for organizations to perform better on what they do every day.  Providing the insights and knowledge that they don’t have today to improve tomorrow.

Makes sense right?  The major problem for organizations is not determining that they need analytics but moreso how to…

I Hate to Say "I Told You So," But....

Excuses Are Like Armpits, Feet, and/or Buttholes

How To Sell Your Company During The Interview Process

Artist, Leader or Entrepreneur?

I recently attended the #TonyRobbins Business Mastery course at the Excel in London.  It consisted of 4 days packed with information, tools and techniques on building and growing a business that is continually innovating and performing at its peak, and the best ways to create an exit plan for yourself; be this through creating a leadership team that will enable you to step away from the day to day running of the business, or the…

Where does technology fit into your recruiting strategy?

Lately I’ve been watching a number of presentations by recruiting and sourcing professionals on their recruitment marketing strategy and how they are able to drive success at their organizations.   Most if not all have a technology component that helps them drive innovation in their process.

 

With many of these organizations, they’ve been able to determine a successful recruiting strategy through a few key steps.  Here is my simplified…

Who is doing Social Recruiting right?

I missed William Tincup's  presentation on boosting user adoption, but was (fortunately) able to get a quick recap from him. We also talked about the panel discussion he was in and examples of companies that "get" social recruiting. Very informative. Check it out. (Were you at the Social Recruiting Strategies Conference 2012 in Chicago?)…

Is Your Staffing Company E3 Certified?

Whether an employee of staffing company, a candidate working with a staffing company to find their next career, or a company that has hired the services of a staffing company,  one had better make certain that it is E3 Certified. What is an E3 Certification you ask?

Answer: Yes.

There is an adage that says, "Desperate times call for desperate measures."

Please do not apply that adage to your job search.

Grocery Markets and Your Corporate Website

You may have noticed that I have an active imagination…Enjoy the ride!

 

Remember when you finished your last box of cereal and decided to stop quickly on the way home to replace it?  Dinner will be ready soon and this was going to be a very quick stop.  What would happen if your fictional experience at the Grocery store was the same as a group of candidates visiting your corporate website looking for your list of openings and desiring to simply submit their…

Diversity Recruitment Problems Over Analyzed

Recently when I presented the “Secrets of a Successful Job Search” at the University of Utah, I asked the participants “How many of you feel you have been discriminated because of your age?” About a third of the people raised their hands.

When you read about diversity recruitment most people discuss systems and solutions but I have yet to see anyone discuss the root problem. Possibly the reason that you do not see the root cause is that most people who write on the subject are outside…
