Excerpted from the Standout Jobs blog: http://blog.standoutjobs.com/your-resume-is-a-story/Resumes should be more like stories and less like grocery lists.
How can we make resumes more into stories? Your feedback and suggestions are appreciated!

On the recruiting technology "Productivity Paradox"...
"The bottom line is that in order to have a successful recruitment system implementation, the recruiter still needs to know how to recruit, and the system needs to be perceived as a valuable tool in managing the workload...ultimately a recruitment system will only be as good as the people using it."
Ed Newman, The Myth… Continue

On sucky recruiters' excuse-making...
"We've heard all the reasons why you can't deliver strong candidates — not enough money, too many skills and requirements, not enough time, bad ads, candidates don't want to relocate, etc. Enough already! We don't need to pay for recruiters who can't find top candidates. This is your #1 job! Get creative...Just stop making excuses."…

I am generally speaking, a pretty perceptive person. I tend to trust my instincts moreso than statistics or the like. I remember when I was in the 8th grade, my science fair project was unlike anything anyone else did. One reason was that I hated science and thought that logic was overrated. The other was that I was a weird kid. My science fair project was to determine if Extra Sensory Perception is more prevalent in twins than other siblings.

In preparation for SHRM 2007 in Las Vegas, I asked bunch of clients and industry contacts to share what they thought was most likely to be overheard at the conference.
And the winners are...
10. Is that Cheezhead or a Philip Seymour Hoffman look alike?
9. HR Generalist 1: My boss thinks I'm here to get a new certification but really I'm networking for a new job. Continue

Why do I hear recruiters say that it is an intrusion to call a candidate who isn’t actively looking? I’m tired of it. It isn’t an intrusion unless you are rude about the way you present yourself. It is FLATTERY!! I love receiving a call from someone trying to recruit me because they either found me to be in the top 10% of my field, or someone else thought enough of me to pass my name and number along because I’m all… Continue

Recruiter's are always on the prowl for great internet resources with useful information that allow us to source, scout, attract and hire talent.
I stumbled on Mr. Zillman's website in 2004, and thought his website was pretty cool back then. Today, I am still just as impressed with the amount of information this man freely shares via his website.
One of the cool things you can access freely on his website is The Virtual Private… Continue

On Feng Shui and retention best-practice...
"If we had cubicles or even individual offices with walls dividing us, the recruiter may have been able to hire away a valuable member of our team. He failed because in an open office environment it’s awkward to take a call from a recruiter and talk numbers, during work hours. Everyone can hear you.…

A couple years back I worked with Venture Capitalists in the high tech space. I wrote this article after observing so many companies and people trying their best to attract and secure venture funding for their company or idea.
While this article doesn't address recruiting specifically [my chosen passion] it in a big picture manner of speaking can be very relevant to recruiting.
Where there is money invested, recruiting is sure to… Continue

So, I have finally arrived, fashionably late as usual. Something I think is tremendously overrated - punctuality. It doesn't matter what time I leave - I am notoriously late. Something else I am really bad about - RSVP'ing to something and changing my mind at the last minute. I'm not sure why, I think my attention span must be shortening...

On the future of recruiting technology...
"The hope is that, in not too many years, human brains and computing machines will be coupled together very tightly, and that the resulting partnership will think as no human brain has ever thought and process data in a way not approached by the information-handling machines we know today."
