A recent study tells us that 7% of American households have a Twitter account while 41% have a Facebook account. Facebook is the most accepted form of social media more so than LinkedIn.

"Doing Things Right"

My wife and I recently made the trip to California to help celebrate the 90th birthday party of one of her aunt’s. We had a great time visiting with family and friends during the party and for a few more days, enjoyed the company of another set of friends in Northern San Diego County.

While waiting for our return flight home, it gave me a chance to watch the fever-pitched activity out on the airport ramp. As baggage was loaded and unloaded,…

How to best take advantage of your employees in a poor economy?

I have heard many people's anecdotal accounts of how the poor economy of the past 18-24 months has affected them from a job perspective; but I am particularly interested in this as we emerge from the other side.

I have heard how employers reduced the number of workers to substantially lower levels, seemingly to reduce overhead costs, trimming budgets while hopefully increasing potential profits. This seems like a sound idea, particularly for shareholders looking for strong returns.… Continue

Are You Listening?

Have you ever had an entire conversation with somebody only to feel like your point was not heard? I can say that I have had this happen to me on several occasions. This phenomenon is even more frustrating if the conversation is one that was designed to settle a dispute or argument of some type, or a conversation that involved an important negotiation. Whether it be an argument between spouses, a…

Decoding "Recruiter Speak:" 21 Handy Definitions for Candidates

Every industry and profession carries with it its own distinct jargon. In fact, it is the measure of recruiters’ worth to be able to pick up on the unique lexicon of the positions for which they recruit. Being able to spout off the verbal equivalent of Google Adwords also preempts most candidates’ assumptions that as recruiters, we’re slightly above amoeba but slightly beneath bonobo monkeys on the evolutionary ladder. (The monkeys do admittedly win by default,…

Recruiting in Iran

We all have our prejudices and fears. It does not help in our relations, and it does not in our recruiting tasks. The main reason why I am writing this article is to help some of you to face them better, or even to liberate yourself from prejudices and fears completely. .

Why Singapore? Taxes, taxes, taxes!

Globalization’s effects can be felt everywhere. Gone are the days where people needed to hop on planes to attended business meetings, and gone are the days where managers needed to be physically present to manage their teams. Today companies can move their doors to foreign and more profitable places where labor is cheaper, taxes are lower, and property has more value.

We at HireLabs have become big fans of Singapore, which is on its way to becoming the epicenter of the technological… Continue

Zombies and Recruiting

It's strange how a song you've heard thousands of times before, suddenly brings a meaning to you. I was peacefully sitting in my car today, kids at home, doing some errands in my own space and this song from The Zombies comes on the radio, "Shes not there". This song is 33 years old, I was 3 when it came out... and today it decided to speak to me.

Maybe this is the theme song for all those Recruitment Managers out there, who have a team doing hiring for them,… Continue

Recruiters With Better Things To Do...Than Visit Clients!

With all the pressures facing the recruitment industry at the moment, from the reduced levels of hiring over the last couple of years to skill shortages and the increased threat of direct sourcing posed by social recruiting, you would have thought that any recruiter worth their salt would be doing everything they could to maximise every opportunity.

Couple of weeks ago a client invited me in for a briefing. I wasn’t the only… Continue

How many horses should be pulling that résumé cart?

I'd suggest at least two. You've got your Plough Horse (the scanable, aesthetically-bland format for an applicant database), and you have your Show Pony (the one you parade in an interview that just looks dazzling and makes you feel good). I'm talking about formats or structures here, so as not to be confused with different versions…
