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…

Recruiting Software and Email Hell

As a recruiter, you probably spend a good deal of your workday, sending, receiving and decoding emails. The more you read, the more that come in. The more you send out, the more that need replies. This is called email hell, and it’s a vicious cycle. We know that we need to have constant…

The Most Important Job in the World

Today I dropped off Kennedy, my daughter, at Kindergarten just like I do every day.  When I was walking her to class, I was deep in thought.   Kennedy was holding my hand tightly and my 2 year old son, Trace, was in my arms.  I passed the cross-guard and said “hello” just like I do every morning.  I walked in…

Even with the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) delayed until 2015, companies are already looking for ways to get around the mandate. But they could find themselves in legal hot water if they adopt one of the most popular techniques - cutting employee hours.

Starting January 1, 2015, the employer mandate will require employers with 50 or more full-time or “full-time equivalent” employees to provide health coverage to its full-time…

Time-To-Fill is Going Down the Tubes

The world of job searching is getting tougher for candidates. It is taking employers longer and longer to pull the trigger on new hires. Even great candidates with all the right skills and values are left wondering and waiting by the phone. According to research done by economists Steven J. Davis, Jason Faberman and John Haltiwanger, vacancies are staying open far…

Is the focus on Time to Fill hurting candidate quality?

We've had a lot of conversations with recruiting organizations over the past few months about their recruiting processes  and strategies.  And one feeling that keeps coming up is that they feel like they are becoming too process oriented.  They feel hijacked by their requisition based…

Here are three basic metrics to get you started:

Save time - increase business

Do you have a worksheet? As a busy recruiter, you are probably aware that systems and processes make your life easier, but it strikes me as funny the number of recruiters that don’t actually have a working job order, or worse still a job order that is not working effectively!

There are 2 main purposes to a job order, most recruiters think there is only one, to gain the information for the vacancy in a clear and detailed manner; but the other important part of the job order is to…

How busy recruiters save time





There's no way around it - recruiters are busy busy people. Now that's not a bad thing and anyone in recruitment will support me - it is one of the most exciting and challenging career paths you could wish for! But the truth is that there are a lot of elements that go into being a successful recruiter AND there are only a certain number of hours in the day.
Recruiters need to know their employers well - they need to understand the work…

2011 New Year's Recruiting Resolutions

Happy New Year everybody!!  As I was Facebooking and LinkingIn my New Year optimizim, I started pondering my peers and curiously wondering about their New Year recruiting resolutions.  I have come up with a few resolutions that I would like to share (and keep).

 

1.  Spend more time calling (presenting), set away distractors (email, pins, blogs, tweets, etc., etc.) from the actual phone and compartmentalize those modes of communication to times before calling my list or after…

Is it finally Time to Forgive Tiger Woods?

The final round of the 92nd PGA Championship is being played as I begin to write this. Tiger Woods started the day tied for 31st place. Unless you've been living under a rock you probably know more than you want to know about Tiger's fall from grace. We all learned about Tiger's personal life, his wife, his two children, and a succession of other women. We've watched his performance on the golf course. Clearly, right now, he isn't the player he once was. Frankly, given what…

New Year, New Decade, New Candidates!

In my experience, November, December and January have always been the worst of the worst as far as number of candidates in my funnel. But I take heart in the fact that very soon all of the year-end bonuses will be paid out and relocation weather will be here (in the Midwest).



What do you do in January that helps you get through the last of the annual dry spell? How do you attract qualified candidates this time of year? I make a checklist of things that really help build credibility… Continue

Time Management: Are you working on a good job order, or a great one?

With cutbacks from the economy, more recruiters than ever are running a full desk. You may have been thrust suddenly into the role of Account Manager or Business Development in addition to your normal recruiting duties. If you're new to the world of staffing sales, then you may not know that not all job orders are created equal. In fact, you might be so anxious to get a "yes" out of a client that you forget all about some important factors that will predict the outcome of any job… Continue
