Recruit Virtually. Save the Earth.

Go Green!

Did you know that virtual MBA recruitment technology can help save the planet?

In 2008, MBA Focus and its partner schools decided to no longer offer printed resume books to recruiters in an effort to conserve paper and save trees. Based on the number of resume books ordered each year, we estimated that we would save at least 75 trees per year.

Today, in partnership with InterviewStream, we aim to reduce carbon emissions one virtual interview at a time! And…

Sometimes the truth hurts

People who proclaim that most interview advice is simplistic irritate me. These are people who view advice on eye contact, handshakes, how to answer difficult questions, and avoiding smoking before an interview, as obvious and unworthy of  mention. Their "expert" advice is often sarcastic, blunt, and…

Recruiters… Stand up straight and stop bending over

It’s tough out there in the commercial contingent recruitment world – I know, I live in it too.  Clients seem to hold regular reverse auctions for fees, playing one recruiter off against another 3 or 4. Candidates swear they are being transparent, then they continually move the goalposts throughout the process and competitors pull out all stops to make the placement – sometimes ethically and sometimes… well…completely unethically.  It can be disheartening, frustrating and bloody…

Countering the Counter Offer

Have you ever sourced the Best Candidate; sold them on the opportunity with your company or client; worked with them through the interview process, answering their questions; helped the hiring manager determine the best compensation package; extend the offer that they accepted; and then lost the candidate to a counter offer?  If you have been in the recruitment business for any amount of time, you have experienced that sinking feeling when they stop returning your calls.

 

When…

You Accepted the Position – Beware of the Counter Offer

Put that pedal to the floor!!!

This morning, I realized that I still have a lot of work to do before the holiday.  It's Thursday...technically mid-week for a recruiter.  Long line recruiting, local interviews, and client calls are all on my plate for today.  Not to mention our VP will be in town the next two days...right before I go on vacation for a week to refresh.

The point is, I am working up to the buzzer.  Every recruiter, no matter what industry or what experience level, can slack at this point in the week,…

A SALUTE TO VETERANS PAST AND PRESENT – And how serving in the military was my introduction into recruitment...

It all started with the military heritage of my family.

On June 16, 1942 the New Mexico Albuquerque Journal had a front page article with photos entitled "GIVE FIVE SONS TO THEIR COUNTRY".  The photos are those of my grandparents, on my mother's side, and their five sons (my…

A Disturbing List! Where Are The Women On Fortune’s 40 Under 40?

Men: 40, Women: 6.

REEEEAAALLLY?

Because they show “ties” for several of the top 40 listings, there are actually 46 people on Fortune’s 40 Under 40, an annual list of business movers and shakers.  13% Women.  You have to get to #20 (#21 really) to see the first woman.  How very sad.  Fortune has been…

Early Christmas Presents, Great Opportunity!

The Indian summer seems to have officially gone and it's now time to dust off the winter coats and step into the cold wind, hoping that London can avoid coming to a standstill this winter. With any luck, you might even sink your hand into the pocket of your long forgotten favourite winter coat to find a tenner you didn't realise was in there. I would love to say that's what happened to me, alas, it did not. A year old packet of chewing gum isn't nearly as…

Words to the Wise - Recruiter in the Balance

Words to the wise from a recruitment veteran of forty years- besides being dedicated to the recruiter's life (whatever that may mean to you) along with taking care of personal responsibilities with family, etc.--make an effort to have sideline activities such that they take you away from the rigors of recruiting (because traversing the terrain can become rigorous, even difficult).

I say this for two reasons—particularly for…

“Really how far is the extra mile?”

In this current job climate it is important for candidates to stand out from the crowd. However what is less clear is where to draw the line in terms of trying to attract attention and making a positive impression. A recent piece of market research conducted by bta examined where some candidates and companies think the grey areas are when it comes to going that extra mile.

 

We conducted interviews with two separate focus groups, one with hiring managers and directors and the…

When In Doubt: Enjoy The Journey

This was the wise advice of an old manager of mine at Solutions Partners a few years back, when the economic circumstances hit close, after my hours were cut when the permanent job orders that were 70% of my employer's business at Solutions Partners became less and less in demand.  It was on a bright and sunny day walking in Los Gatos, with Nathan North who provided such wisdom at the time, and said the economic storm will pass and "When in Doubt: Enjoy the Journey" - I couldn't help but…

Bill Would Ban Discrimination Against Unemployed In Hiring

Sad but true, earlier this year the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had to hold a public hearing because of a disturbing trend: several companies, nationwide, had been excluding unemployed applicants from hiring consideration. Their ads specifically stated that they would only consider employed job candidates, using phrases like “No unemployed candidates will be considered at all” and “Client will not consider/review anyone NOT currently employed, regardless of the reason.”
