Employee Education is Your Most Valuable Investment

Start-ups begin in many different ways. While many of them launch with an intention to turn into a huge, profitable corporation, other companies come about out of necessity. For example, a freelance programmer could gain so many projects he’d need a part-time employee to help out with his clients. More…

Non-Participants

There has been a lot of talk over the last 7 or 8 years about those not participating in the labor market.  People who are not working and not trying to get back to work.

For recruiting purposes they don’t matter.  They matter to our economy and to society as a whole, but they aren’t part of the recruiting equation.  You need to be qualified enough and motivated enough in order to really matter to the businesses that are working to grow and improve.…

Hustle

Hustle makes the breaks called luck.  This was a favorite line of a high school coach I had and a line that always stuck with me.  This is not to say that you are just lucky if you hustle and good things happen.  It is to say that if you hustle good things happen and some people look at it as luck, but your hustle made things happen and put you in a position to succeed.

As recruiters we run our processes, make the extra call, ask for referrals, make the extra follow up, and do them…

How well does Interviewing work in Choosing the best Employee?

Employee Performance There are problems in using “predictors” of suitability for open positions within a company. Hunter and Hunter (1984) showed that interviewing is one of the worst predictors of future job performance.  Using reference checks (.26), education (.22) or biographical data (.37) did not improve the odds too favorably. In fact, even the best predictor, test scores, came out at .57.  We could make the…

What the Hell is Success Anyway?

"I want to be successful when I grow up". Isn't that what we are taught at an early age? When you are younger you aspire to do so much and achieve so many great things. You are full of vigor and stamina. You have goals, and you start knocking them down one by one. You are determined to be somebody. You are…

People are companies' best competitive advantage.

The Houston Gulf Coast Symposium on HR Issues was this Wednesday and Thursday.  The sessions that I attended were excellent.  Thank you to the exhibitors for their financial support!  A couple of the presenters mentioned that in a recent survey, more CEOs interviewed sited Human Capital as their top challenge than any other concern.  HR expertise is more important now than ever and it is finally being recognized.  Recruiting, engagement, and retention are now key concerns on the minds in the…

Back in the saddle...

After almost five years, I have returned to the IT staffing industry in order to be a founding member and recruiter at Kranect. I have found the industry somewhat changed in that social media and technology have changed how people interact when it comes to jobs. For example when I was last recruiting, Twitter was barely in existence, Facebook was just becoming available to non-students, and LinkedIn wasn’t the recruiting tool it has become today. People were still on MySpace for goodness…

Recruiting Vegas-Style: Metrics, Opportunities, and Determination

I am a big fan of METRICS. Year after year, they are the best way to gauge your performance & effort, and the ROI accompanying your output. Some recruiters drill down to "dollars per dial" (CASH-IN / CALLS) to measure how they are doing compared to years past.

That being said, the recruitment industry provides all of us with a tremendous…

Integrity, A Valued Commodity.

In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don't have the first, the other two will kill you."

Recruitment isn’t an easy lark. As a recruitment consultant I am often on the phone to candidates of an evening, arranging interviews and hearing feedback. There is an argument to be made that some…

Move Beyond Salary – Money is Not A Viable Measure of Success

One of the most important jobs of a recruiter when making a match between candidate and client is salary expectations…or is it?  Salary is one component but what should be considered is the total compensation package + non tangibles such as culture and advancement opportunity.  However I am sure we can all recount those who get stuck on salary and that is often because salary reflects status and an interpreted success (along with job title).  We are after all social creatures and what others…
