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 -…Continue
Welcome to the second part of our “Show me the Money” blog series. If you joined us last week for part one, you would have learned how to reduce agency spending in five steps. Today we’ll be sharing seven awesome, free recruiter tools to help make you more effective.
I've noticed online networkers have become much more aware of people who look at their LinkedIn profile during the last few months, but frankly not many do anything and let potential opportunities slip by - perhaps for the fear that they don't want to appear too pushy. I suspect there's something very British about that, but I admit that's a guess (wouldn't it be fascinating to see the LinkedIn behaviour stats country by…Continue
Facebook today unveiled a few new tools with Social Graph leading the way as the most innovative and potentially the…Continue
Here are some of the Social Media tools I use and why?
There is no value in data, the value comes from the interpretation of data, and Visibli is an online tool that will help with this. It’s used for real-time data analytics, allowing you to see how many clicks your links have received, who clicked them and how engaged they were, plus it’s fully customisable to agencies, businesses and individuals.
Rapportive is a free app (recently acquired by LinkedIn) that shows you everything about your contacts right inside your inbox. Rapportive helps you build rapport quickly (hence the name) and is "relationship management built into your…Continue
WiseStamp is a handy dandy app that allows you to customize your email signature.
I use the free version in conjunction with Gmail and it works swimmingly well for both branding and presenting a professional signature from a web-based email account. WiseStamp is compatible with other…Continue
You’ve hear d it countless times: With the economic recovery crawling along in the slow lane job seekers need to prepare for a longer than expected search and consider new and innovative ways to differentiate. But how do you prepare for a longer than expected search when you don’t have any sense of how long it’s going to take in the first place, and how can…Continue

Have you ever hired someone who didn’t turn out to be what you expected? Did that seemingly well-spoken, educated and experienced interviewee turn into just another “warm body” consuming valuable office air, or worse, turning off your best customers? We call it a “cultural malignancy” when a senior level hire fails to fit with their team – affecting team members’ performance or causing key team members to leave. Ouch.
Well, it turns out you’re not the only one who’s been caught in a…Continue

DOE is cutting right and left as they prepare for the worst. This means I'm left to fend for myself. This means no CRM besides what our watered down version of Kenexa can provide. In order to keep ahead of all of the outside emails I get on a regular basis (20+ daily) I decided to find a free solution.
Thus, my simple Zoho form was created: …Continue
Identifying the right candidate is the highest cost component in a recruitment business. Recruiters and HR managers find it difficult when they have numerous clients looking for multiple job openings.
Today, Recruiters and Hiring Managers find matching resumes from job portals and email inbox that are…Continue

I'll give kudos where kudos are due. LinkedIn was a pretty nifty idea. It negated all the Myspace and Facebook triviality and packaged up something that resembled an interactive resume. Not bad.
Recruiters gone wild! People just giving out content that is usually discovered by means of an internet scouring fest? Jockpot.
Well... now LinkedIn is trying to play jackpot. They invited us into their site, pampered us a little, spoiled us a bit. Little did…Continue
Barefoot and empty handed, in the frosty pre-dawn hours of late March, separated only by tangled wisps of breath and steam from a nearby pond, I stared down a wolf. Eye to steely eye. Neither of us advancing nor retreating. Neither of us moving, except inwardly in resolve. He, ash grey, thin and fractured from winter’s threshing, far past hunger, eternally empty, steadfast. Me, a solitary barrier to his single, strongest earthly longing; the mother to his first - in all memory -…Continue

At the risk of starting a blizzard of spitballs and chewing gum wads, I'm going to bring up a touchy subject. Why the heck not? I never won a popularity contest, was never voted class president (or class anything), and had to invite my own date to my prom. Hell, when I was a kid, even my mother sold my favorite blouse at a garage sale for ten cents.
Ever know when people screen their calls? You just never seem to connect, but the voicemail doesn't pick up…Continue
