Gee it's been a while since I posted here... Hi everyone!
Those of you who know me will know my Recruiting background. Started in a Recruitment Agency, well fell into it, as we all do. Went to an in-house role for 8 years, somehow ended up back in Agency land again, and am now back in-house.
One of the things I learned whilst working in house was the utter despising of Recruiting Agencies by most people I came across, both from the business point of view and the candidates.…Continue
I am an evolutionist. I love seeing things evolve, people, places, teams and functions. Looking back to 2002 (yep, all that way) when I first landed into the world of in-house Recruitment, it's interesting to see how things have changed as much as they have stayed the same.
I went in-house for the same reasons of many, I hated the agency land, whilst I enjoyed the cut and thrust as I am a competitive bugger, I struggled with the closing and ended up hating the fact that no…Continue
When you were a kid did you ever play computer games? Had the obsession to get the top score and put 3 funny (or rude) letters on the leaderboard to commemorate your greatness? (Not that it happens now of course, I'm much more mature)
I can remember the adrenalin of almost getting there, seeing the glory, visualising the gloating to my mates as we all crowded around the big arcade game at the corner shop. Ahhh Galaga I miss you.
I've been watching my son get his addict on…Continue
I find it interesting, this world we live in. I'm probably too entrenched in this Social Media, Recruiting space. I get genuinely surprised when people either a) discover Social Media b) discover how to use it within Recruitment. When people rock up at these conferences and are all starry eyed and "Wow'ed" at what they are discovering. I know it is pretty cool stuff,…Continue

I am the JITH Lord! OK, maybe a little over stated, but an interesting start to a blog right? (It's been a while since I've blogged here, surely no one will recognise me) I'm pretty sure that the JITH's are related to the …Continue

Changing jobs a couple of times in the last 2 years has made me really look at myself and my belief structure in this field, refine this, perhaps even formulate one (or two). I've come to understand what I believe in, when it comes to Recruiting.
It's not about just going to work, hiring people and going home. I think people over complicate things to (sometimes) justify their own existence, pad out their "personal brand", push their agenda or product, or suck up to "Recruiting…Continue
I read this article the other day (about killings apparently because of Facebook) and it really disturbed me, it bought me back to a
conversation I had recently about people becoming disconnected on LinkedIn (I'm not sure about the official term for that)
Social Media is both all about personal communication and about anonymity.
Don't get me wrong, you know I'm a fan of this genre of Recruiting. That said, I am getting a bit sick and tired of reading blogs, tweets, opinion etc about how this is all completely changes the game and is the best thing that has ever happened to the Recruitment industry.
Is it a help or a hinderance? I'm comfortable sitting here on the…Continue

For those who read my blog, you'll know I've recently changed jobs, and I've been pretty slack in posting here in the last year. Some will say "again?" others have been congratulatory, I have to say it has been an interesting experience. I'm 37 years old and I'm into my 5th professional job (not counting the moss farming, kitchen hand and service station attendant during University and high school). Being the new boy again, facing those nerves of the unknown, will they like me? will…Continue

I must be having a dumb moment. I just don't understand. Why is it that people do Recruitment Advertising and do not put their name or phone number or email address on it?…
I'm not sure "saddened" is the right word, however I was moved the other day when I saw that Jason Davis had decided to pull the plug on his involvement with Recruitingblogs.com.
The institution in Recruiting circles, OK my Recruiting circles that is Recruitingblogs has done…
So.... I'm now ten months into this job with Peerlo now, time flies huh?
It's been an interesting journey, it's been a fun journey, but I tell you what.... I feel like I've learned a lot, about a lot of things, even myself! So far some of the interesting discoveries have been
1) I broke a promise to myself over the last couple of years. Almost 10 years ago I promised myself that I wouldn't out stay my welcome in a company again (after doing that) However, I think I…

Wow... it's been a while since I've blogged on here. It's not that I haven't been writing, it's just that I've had some other outlets, which make the something's Dan says a little quiet.. not my normal style. October 2010 it tells me... oops
So today it is... a quiet house, a busy mind and the need to write something has made this happen.
I've been Recruiting for a number of years now... maybe too many, but I heard something the other day which I hadn't heard…Continue
