I have been looking at ways to increase the number of subscriptions to my YouTube Channel. Strangely YouTube does not make it that easy to find a link that can be published on web sites to encourage people to subscribe, however with a little bit of research I’ve found this:
I wanted to try an experiment to see just how fast Google can index a new Word press blog. I choose the phrase 'Sexy SEO for Recruiters' as Google was not returning any direct results for this phrase and so I could see immediately if my new page was being indexed. I created a new post on my blog page and within a few seconds Google had found the post.
This has big implications for recruiters posting vacancies onto web sites as generally you will want Google to index your own web site…Continue

There has been much talk about Cloud computing or SAAS recruitment software and the massive benefits for a recruitment agency to move to the Cloud. I find this quite amazing for two reasons, firstly most people I speak to aren’t really sure what this means and secondly the whole argument seems to have absolutely nothing to do with finding candidates, making placements or anything else to do with recruitment.
For the life of me I can not see what all the fuss is about, but…Continue
I regularly run free recruitment software and technology webinars and yesterdays, on Advanced Sourcing, proved more popular than most. This is a recording followed by my notes on what happened.
I wanted to convey the shear scale of the subject of recruitment sourcing while also focus on some useful techniques that can give immediate benefit. It’s really mind blowing…Continue

Last week I attended Radical Planet the Recruitment and HR unconference in Toronto. There was a great track on blogging and writting blogs to I took the opportunity of asking some questions on how the write a really good recruitment blog.
Steven Duque lead the blogging track at the Unconference and was recommending Tumbler as the best platform to get started. While Wordpress may be better for SEO, Tumblr is easier to use and has better tools to allow people to share your…Continue

My recruitment webinar this week was all about making contact with candidates particularly when you may not have all their contact details. The Social Media sites like LinkedIn and Facebook really limit a recruiters ability to get in touch and unless you already have their details on your ATS or recruitment system it can be a real challenge to make contact.…Continue
There are no shortages of clever ideas and techniques to help recruiters find candidates. Recently I've been looking at ways to help my recruitment agency customers use the internet for business development and source new clients and new vacancies. Ideally I'm looking for vacancies that no one else knows about to try and secure exclusive business or at least get a head start on the search.,
I ran the first of a new series of recruitment webinars earlier this week talking about…Continue

New Legislation proposed in South Africa could see the end of the Recruitment industry as we currently know it. It is proposed to outlaw all forms of temporary and contract recruitment forcing all employers to employ staff on a permanent basis only.
This will of course have very dramatic effects for the industry and the millions of temporary and contract workers currently employed in South Africa whose employers will be forced to offer permanent employment or terminate…Continue
I recently attended a HR and recruitment forum and listened to speaker, Carron Hinton , talk about Change management. I've never really though about this topic before and as I listened it dawned on me that I really wished I had.
Carron talked about the differences between Operational Management and Change or Project management. It occurred to me that the normal management style of my customers (recruitment agency managers) is that all about Operations management and nothing to do…Continue

I'm getting ready for truUSA in Madison WI in just over a week. Really looking forward to this, if it is anything like truLondon in Feb it will be a fantastic event.
At truLondon I ran an impromptu track to create a few geniuses. We had ten people take part and all were transformed within the allotted 30 minutes.
The process is actually quite simple. Firstly we ran a simple test of Intelligence, Dee Allen was the winner and borderline genius before we even started. After this…Continue
