Either Do Social Recruiting or Don't

Lately, there has been tons of discussion around the use of social media in recruiting. While there are some companies that recognize the value of these new tools to achieve their recruiting goals, others argue that until Social Recruiting is more proven it should simply be added onto existing activities. While I’m in agreement that an organization should never jump into something without a…

On hold: Making mobile mistakes

Let’s not repeat the same mistakes with mobile that we did with social

media. Being a participant of Bill Boorman's radio show about mobile recruitment made me reflect a little more on mobile in context of the recruitment industry. My biggest worry is that we’ll be repeating the same mistakes that we did and do with social media:…

Thriving in a Non-Recovery

Recruiting is, and always will be, a business that faces ever-changing circumstances. Veterans and rookies of recruiting must possess equal determination. In great times we must avoid complacency. In challenging times we must adapt. Having seen previous recessions, this recruiter has also had the thrill of the subsequent recoveries. This time around, recovery seems elusive. Some recruiters have patiently held on in the hopes that something or somebody will ride in a save the day by creating a… Continue

Does your recruiting tell a story?

They say every picture tells a story. Well, I think the same is true for new media (podcast/video/blogs) when it comes to recruiting the next generation of talent. Take a look at at what 2 innovative companies are doing with their new media initiatives.

One is Sodexo which recently launched its own career podcast show called the Sodexo CareerCast…

global talent management initiatives.

Playing Hard To Get...Will Get You Nowhere

It has been a little while since I wrote a blog post dedicated to the stupid stuff candidates sweet, clueless candidates, this one is for you. ***raises tall Red-Eye from Starbucks in mock salute***

As girls, we are taught to play hard to get to get what you want (or at least men). I've never really paid attention to this rule...namely, because I'm naturally so awkward it wouldn't really matter what I did. The (less than favorable) end result was always the same. I was a… Continue

Beyond Good Recruiting: Why You Need to Change Your Approach

Most (okay, some - those over 30 for sure) will know how to complete this movie cliche: "you had me at..."

I think Amazon had me at: "Amazon is building brand new recruiting tools and services from the ground up..." Which makes me kind of a geek. I'm good with that. I'm also very happy to see lines like that in job

postings. We're going to need many more…

Where did that hire come from, anyway? And who cares?

A long time ago – say, in the early 1990s – employers had a very good

idea where their job candidates originated. Most came from ‘word of

mouth’ and the rest via newspaper ads.

Not so today. In a world where candidates can discover jobs via Twitter, job

, social

,… Continue

No Longer Available

Companies now have to put on their "selling shoes" to the candidates. They need to articulate the positive points of the company, culture and the position; create some excitement with the candidate. Companies are so busy "screening out" that they forget to "screen in" candidates. We no longer can assume that we have the only position open in a poor economy and candidates should be grateful for this position.

Within the…

Are You Unpatrotic ?

By most estimates, the military produces hundreds of thousands of

civilian workers each year. Chances are that your business will consider

a veteran for employment.

Based on my experience with both veterans and companies looking for quality employees, consider the

following before hiring a veteran. You'll find these are the same for

any applicant.

  • Make sure you fully understand any military terminology during your resume review or interview process. Do…

Why do you all hate your jobs?

This might be a bit untrendy, and I’m not expecting to get featured anywhere for it, but I’m going to say it anyway. I think most Recruiters and most H.R. professionals do a pretty good job. I also think that most care about their candidates and clients and add plenty of value to the recruitment process.…
