I have just been in Atlanta at the global sourcing conference that is known as #SourceCon. The event gathers all of the best sourcers from around the world, and the presenters, participants, drinking partners and general company I kept were full of advice, tips and a few hacks thrown in.

The second keynote of the day really stood…Continue

With only a few seconds before her presentation, Sarah White was gracious enough to grant me an interview at the Social Recruiting Strategies Conference about what she learned and what she shared with others. One key takeaway, "Its not all about social." Lesson learned: Don't be so caught up in social that you neglect other steps in the recruiting process.…Continue

You've done everything you need to build your social recruitment strategy, including creating social media accounts to share all career related news about your company.

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?)…Continue

There is an adage that says, "Desperate times call for desperate measures."
Please do not apply that adage to your job search.
A job seeker who I met via Twitter some months ago recently asked me if there was such a thing as being overly eager/aggressive when using social…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue

Abraham Maslow developed his hierarchy of needs by studying successful people. How does your company’s recruiting process match up with our human needs?
Obviously the physiological needs are taken care of through compensation and benefits. Your company’s offers need to be competitive in order to attract the best candidates.
