OK maybe it's just a great excuse to play a U2 song. I had this idea about a post the other day, but let the idea fall from my head, with the amount of noise happening in my life at the moment. However, as fate would have it, I had to run (OK drive) up to the shops tonight for some milk, and guess what came on the radio? Tick! This song.
What does this have to do with what I normally blog about? Recruiting.
It speaks to me at the moment. I am in the middle of a search at the moment which is proving a little elusive. I'm getting closer I can feel it! I've found and met some great candidates, and some absolute shockers, I've used multiple mediums for my search, social media, print advertising, networking, job boards etc etc etc
The person is out there, do they know I will hire them yet? Nope. I heard once that a passive candidate is just someone who doesn't know they are looking yet, maybe that's my future employee, just haven't turned over the right rock? Maybe I've spoken to them already and haven't finished the process yet? But I'm waiting for you!
With or without you.....
WITH OR WITHOUT YOUUUUUUUU
The interesting thing about this role, is that it is an extremely important role for my company. However it is a function which normally has a love/hate relationship with Recruitment. I am actually hiring a rod for my own back.
