Staffing Agencies are amazing microcosms. They often have the potential to go from zero revenue to a million dollars in a week. With this earning potential, you will find some of the greatest entrepreneurs playing in and around the Recruiting Industry. These entrepreneurs are extremely independent…

I often witness Independent Recruiters are living fee to fee, and that every deal they work on is do or die for them. This is no way to run a viable, stable business.
Wouldn’t it be nice to:
- Stabilize monthly projections by generating recuing monthly revenue?
- Know your clients will call you before ANYONE else?
- Have your customer treat you like the valued hiring consultant you…

Many of us open our own boutique agencies thinking we are going to make a million dollars and get the hell out of this recruiting business. Far too many Recruiters dismay that once their candidate is placed and the fee has been paid the only way to make any additional revenue is to start the whole process over again. This may look like a business from the outside, but when you peel back the…

A client and I have been having this ongoing discussion about what kind of first impressions Recruiting Professionals are making when they send an email from an AOL, GMAIL or Hotmail account.
As a candidate, client or as a Recruiting Professional ~
Is it important to have a company email address? Why or Why not?
What kind of impression does a Recruiting professional give you when they send an email from a NON-COMPANY email address?

There are 8,766 hours in a year, and out of those hours the average Recruiting Professional spends about 520 hours commuting, 3,120 working a desk, and, if they are lucky, 2,190 hours sleeping. Add all of these hours up and you have 2,936 to take care of your family, friends and yourself. Is this unusual?… Continue

Just a quick question...
I coach a number of Recruiting Professionals and I am seeing a large swing in the amount of hours these Recruiters are work to be productive. I am curious to know....
On average how many hours do you work a week?
What are your most productive days and times during that week?
What is your least favorite day and time of the week and why?
Thanks for the insight!!!

imagine this for just a moment….It’s the busiest shopping day of the year and you, like thousand of other executives, Managers and business owners, are there to get the best deals possible. You spend your valuable time selecting just the right product, and now it’s time to cash out. As you approach the front of the store, you hear someone shouting demands at the back of someone leaving. As you approach the check out, the shouting becomes clearer, and you catch some…

What makes a great coach? RESULTS!!!
While we could list all the attributes such as knowledge of the sport, leadership skills, and so on, the answer is actually quite simple. I can explain Recruiting in five minutes, but it will take you five years to understand.
After 15 years of experience, I have to conclude that coaching is much more art than science. While a good coach is always trying to learn more, the only real measure of a coach is…

It 5am, and of course you are up! As an entrepreneur these 5am, 4am (or my personal favorite: 2am) wake up call times quickly turn into regular patterns. The two little demons, "Fear" and "Worry," are quite happy to push that buzzer for you today. As an entrepreneur, over time you will develop the stamina to… Continue

1. Compassion ~ People with ADD have a tremendous power to connect with other people. But it goes a step further than that. We also have an advanced ability to empathize with others, and to see many different perspectives.

I received a call from a Recruiter today asking for information about a particular agency they are scheduled to interview with later this week. To aid Recruitment Professionals in their career search we provide this information to Recruiters for free, making these kinds of calls a part of our everyday routine. Issues only arise when the same Recruiter calls over and over again wanting to make a lateral move and their expectations are that the…

This weekend in the Globe and Mail on the front of the business section was a small article about the stubborn U.S. jobless rate. If you noticed the article, you would have viewed it as an indicator of the first signs that we are moving out of the “Information Age” and into the “Knowledge Economy”. This could be causing that ever talked about talent shortage we as recruiters have been preaching about for years. Raghuram Rajan (a professor at the University of Chicago’s Booth School… Continue
