People sometimes complain about "enormous" Headhunter fees, where we are paid something on the order of lawyers' hourly rates. I found this an interesting problem to analyze: Are we worth our salt?
When I perform a search correctly, my work results in millions of dollars of value to my client, sometimes even billions. I think recruiters are way underpaid for what they provide as a service, and I would say there are very few lawyers out there that have my skills or…Continue

The relationship between corporate recruiters and candidates has witnessed a shift in the information available to the two parties. The widening use of the Internet, particularly social media, has opened up access to data on both sides, ushering in an age of transparency and a heightened potential of mutual communication. In other words, candidates are now in a better position to take the initiative and interact with organizations. This means that corporate recruiters have to step up…Continue

Providing your employees with social tools to make job referrals can give your company’s employer brand an incredible boost. Your employees are your company’s best ambassadors, and when they share your job vacancies with their social networks, they not only provide their connections with direct access to the corporate recruitment team, but also send all the right messages about the kind of workplace you run.
Four Unbeatable Employer…Continue

With the US elections fast approaching, let’s take a look at the parallels between the campaign season and the sourcing of top talent. Both election nominees and corporate recruiters actively engage in a series of tactics to prove that theirs is the winning side, whether it be political party or company. Their strategies serve to paint a positive picture of the results they pledge to carry out, including:
1) Benefits: First things first – what do you bring to the table that…Continue

Or did he...
I'll start by saying that I am not an astrologer nor do I understand the first thing outside of the fact that I am a Virgo and that Virgo begins with a V.
I attended a wedding this past weekend and was introduced to a family members "friend". He was a bit older most likely in his 80's. To start a conversation he asked what I do for a living. I kept it simple and told him that I am a recruiter.
The rest of the night was history as…Continue

Below is a copy of a blog I wrote elsewhere, my blog is public and read by clients, candidates, friends and randoms from social media. It was prompted by several people essentially calling into question what I do, I thought I'd recreate the blog here (as my first post!) to see other peoples thoughts on this. Also as this blog was intended to be read by people not in the recruitment industry so I have in simplistic terms defined recruiter and headhunter within…Continue

"Our firm's growth was twenty percent last year, and I'm still frustrated," he said. He was a new client, running a $30 Million a year fee-based professional services firm in San Francisco. His frustration wasn't based on a monetary or a revenue issue. It was a performance issue. To his competitors, at least those who were still in business at the end of 2003, his growth was enviable. But he knew his staff wasn't performing at their peak levels. In fact, they were underperforming. "How can I…Continue

Recently, a number of recruiting and HR leaders have told me that they’ve “tried this whole social media thing to recruit, but it hasn’t worked out so well.” These folks read about the buzz surrounding social media, heard of how other organizations were using it to successfully recruit, and figured “If it works for them, why don’t we give it a try?”
Well, you can probably guess from the title of this article how that experiment ended: after signing up for some tools, paying…Continue
I joined twitter May 3, 2008 and can't believe it's been three years already! Early on I chose to follow about 100 people that interested me. Originally I reasoned that I may be able to keep up with the tweets of about that many people. I found even that was impossible and just dropped in and read a few pages of tweets whenever the mood took me. I never played the "I'll follow you if you follow me game" and publically tweeted that I…Continue
You are in your car, reading the menu, in the drive-thru lane at McDonald's.
Then a voice appears-May I take you order please?
With confidence and without a hesitation you reply -I’ll have a number 5.
The voice says-proceed to the next window please!
You pay the 5 bucks at the first window and proceed to the next window
And… there it is, in a neat package-the value meal that you just ordered. And that makes you very happy!
