During the pursuit of great candidates, ask yourself these questions:
Do candidates know you? Do they like you? Do you stay in regular contact with your candidates even if they don’t get the job? Do they come to you and a knowledgeable resource when it comes to employment? …

Rich Peterson knows there are loads of articles about how the metrics behind recruiting drive the hiring process.
Recruiting metrics provide us an opportunity to take a analytical approach to hiring by allowing us to quantify the hiring process. Tracking day-to-day details provide us a look at the big picture.
Almost all HR metrics record history. It has little value in the fast-changing business world where any of your numbers, positive or… Continue

Having to tell my son, Ben, his dog had to be euthanized this past Tuesday is now on my top ten list of life’s crappy moments. Seeing him cry as he said goodbye to Max, yep, that’s on the list as well. That same day, a girl with whom he was starting a relationship suddenly ended their friendship by text. As Ben put it, “this day can’t get any worse.”
As a Dad, I want to shield Ben from these hurts in life. But I can’t, which really pisses me off at times! So I did the next best… Continue

Rich Peterson's Lessons from the Political Campaign Trail
Think your job search is challenging? How would you like to go on 100 interviews a month as other candidates try to discredit you and the media stands ready to report (and continually replay) any mistake or failing to a laughing public?
Next to running for office, a job search is a… Continue

Being married to a teacher, I’m biased, typically erring to a teacher’s point of view. However, when the behavior of teachers is harmful to children, I’ll take the kids’ side every time.
That’s the case in this latest awarding of Radical Accountability Zeroes to the UFT, the New York City affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers, and the New York State… Continue

This week I want to take some time to talk about one of the most important parts of the recruitment process that is often overlooked; prepping the candidate for interview.
It has always amazed me that so many otherwise exceptional recruiters will work so hard to identify a good job order; find the ideal candidate; set up an interview and then drop the ball. Why would anyone work… Continue

Desolate and lonely, you find yourself in a vast space where it seems no one, absolutely no one, can be found. Parched and hungry you trudge on, getting wearier by the moment. You just want to give up, thinking, “this is it. This is where it all ends.”
No, this is not a vain attempt at channeling Stephen King or Dean Koontz. Rather, the “desert” described above is the mental space that… Continue

Cans work well for beans and vegetables but fail miserably in sales. Yet, many sales organizations mandate that salespeople memorize or read specific soundbites designed for specific situations. Would you want to be on the receiving end of one of these impersonal, canned statements? This type of sales practice is just one of many reasons why people dislike hearing a sales pitch.
In Sales Yoga, we practice the art of Integrative Questioning to build rapport, develop… Continue

Earlier this week, a salesperson told me about a difficult conversation she was about to have with a client. In asking for my advice, she said there was a chance this customer will ask for a price reduction and that she’d have to do a “dog and pony show” to convince them to keep working with her at the current rate.
I told her she needed to “kill the dog and corral the pony.” As you may suspect, there was a long pause on the other end of the phone after such a startling… Continue

Way back in 2008, I created a training guide called Resume Forensics. In a nutshell, it was a how-to for finding resumes and passive candidates on Google, Yahoo, Bing and a few other resources. In all modesty, it was an underground hit. I… Continue

All joking aside, the current state of the recruitment industry is no laughing matter. It is a world lacking any form of entry barrier and as bizarre as something directed by David Lynch himself! HR departments so it seems, were put in place with the sole purpose of fending off hordes of thick skinned recruiter-goblins, whose only… Continue

It was 1995, I had just graduated from Ole Miss, the Harvard of the South. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do for a career. I was considering moving to Memphis, Tennessee, but I had no leads, so I packed my things and moved back to Austin, Texas. After all, I was 22 and I had no money… Continue
