You're Darn Tootin: Out with the New, In with the Old

There’s something rather entertaining about retro slang and sayings. Perhaps it’s due to the over-saturation (as if it’s been raining cats and dogs or ice buckets) or overuse of the latest industry buzzwords or pure exhaustion from the endless auto-play videos of any fashionable Internet fad.

Though…

12 Tips To Bring Out Your Inner Headhunter

The historic act of headhunting is quite disturbing, yet fascinating. The literal practice of taking and preserving a person’s head after killing them, has advanced from ancient times to the 21st century.

The Flappy Birds Approach to Recruiting

Flappy Bird Recruiting Every few months or so, a new game app comes around that my 16 year old daughter and all of her friends go crazy over. They sit there in a deep stare, barely moving, likely not even breathing - then BOOM - an eruption of disappointment, followed by the resolve to do even better next time, even if it means subsidizing their time spent on homework or interacting with their parents. This goes on and on…

No job, no expertise, SUCKA!

I get hit up to take a lot of surveys from a lot of different sources.

Sometimes vendors of various products or services lure survey respondents with offers to take a brief survey and receive a free copy of their latest white paper, special report or e-book about the “War for Talent” or some other nonsensical topic.

While I’m not particularly tempted to participate due to publication prizes at the end, I do have certain geeky curiosity about…

Process Management or Time Management? That Is the Question

I was talking with a friend the other day who, was lamenting that she had too much work and not enough time to get it all done. Her manager contended the reason was that she and her teammate did not understand how to manage their time. This is an age-old argument that I hear often in the workplace.

It is a…

How did we lose our way?

On April 14 the Wall Street Journal ran an article about companies eliminating their HR departments. If you poll large enough population of corporate executives about the role of HR, a majority will tell you that HR is an obstacle to getting things done.

Experience? I Don't Need Experience to Build an ATS!

I have made a decision. I think I am going to write a book on the safest way to skydive. Now, I've never been skydiving, nor is it likely that I ever will as I am afraid of heights. But really, how hard can it be? Stick a parachute in a backpack - hitch a ride on a plane - open the door - jump - scream -…

The Suckiness of Phone Time Reports

Recruiters have lots of metrics that they are measured on, but the most worthless of them all is the Phone Time Report. This is the report that shows how much time a recruiter spends on the phone each day/week/month.

Some live by this report, and for the life of me, I just can't see why. It is filled with abuses and does not accurately reflect the production level or successes of a…

Why Companies should function like sports teams

It never ceases to amaze me how corporate America looks to build a championship caliber team but does not pay attention to how professional sports teams seek to win championships.

Imagine for a second that you are the owner, GM or coach of an NFL football team. You look at the history of the game and decide it is time to change the way…

Calling Hooey on You

Hate people

Hooey. If you aren't familiar with this term, it's a nicer and friendlier way of calling "BS" on something or someone. It's when your words and your actions don't line up and your hypocrisy has been exposed. Such is the case with Recruiters. I am calling "hooey" on you today.

I have been in recruiting for around 10 years. During that time, I have interviewed and hired countless…

Don't Hate the Robot, Hate the Game

Robotic Snake Is Displayed In Science Museum's Dana Centre

Job candidates jump through the hoops that companies and recruiters set up for them. Some have decided that they may only get one shot at gaining all of the information possible from a candidate and placed lots and lots of hoops at the application portion of the process. They go online to apply for the job, and in some cases, they stay involved in that application process for hours - uploading a…
