Let’s face it. As a recruiter, you’re out there on the front lines, rolling up your sleeves to source, screen and slate the top talent on the market. You’re able to do whatever it takes to find that always elusive purple squirrel, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all… Continue

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? …

As we all know, work isn’t somewhere that people generally enjoy going to but it shouldn’t be somewhere that we completely hate being at. Your work is a huge part of life so if you don’t enjoy going there, then you’re not going to be happy in any other aspect of your life. Did you know that about a third of your life is spent working!
If you’re stuck in a rut then maybe you need to change… Continue

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,… Continue

It surprises me in this day and age that there are still managers out there blaming their staff for poor performance!! Yes, you heard me correctly!

As a Recruiter you know that you can find out a lot about a candidate socially before they come in for an interview by using sites like Facebook and Twitter. On the other hand you have candidates who may be researching who they are interviewing with and deciding if they would want to work with your company based on the company's online brand as well. The way your company and brand are presented to Type A talent could help them to make a decision on if they would want to work for you, even… Continue
