I'm a Recruiter. No, a Salesperson. NO, a RECRUITER!

I’ve always thought of my profession as sales. Always. I started recruiting in the early days of the internet, where training was basically “wanna buy a chicken? No? How about a duck?” until I got my hands on some Danny Cahill Placement 2000 VHS tapes.Ahhh then I was in…

The Richard Sherman of Recruiting

I love football. I mean I LOVE football. And not in that silly girly way, like I just watch it because I don’t want to be a football widow, or I want to impress my boyfriend or something. No. I LOVE FOOTBALL. There is something very hot about watching a bunch of big tough guys chasing each other around trying to…

Talent42 Review - Hiring World Class Tech Talent with Cheryl Ainoa from Intuit

Here’s a novel idea – NON-Recruiters speaking at a Recruiting conference. What? Is that even allowed? Thank goodness it is or we would never have heard from Cheryl Ainoa – Senior Vice President of Product Development at Intuit. She worked at Yahoo! before that so safe to say she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to tech. In her entire career, with all the great companies she’s worked at, Cheryl has…

Talent42 Review - Don't Hang Up! The Art of Telephone Research with Marc Hutto

This was a cool presentation because Marc Hutto, Founder and Managing Principal of Reveal Global Intelligence, actually replayed calls he had made. Most self-proclaimed cold call kings talk in vague generalities – we can’t even get them to share a single…

Talent42 Review - How to NOT Suck When Recruiting Candidates From Outside the US

With each recruiting role I’ve taken the world has gotten bigger and bigger. My very first role was hiring delivery drivers in an around my own neighborhood. This week I’m setting up interviews for a guy in Seoul. The times have changed indeed. One of the talented presenters from Talent42 was Kevin Wheeler – hey any guy who’s profile pic appears to have been taken at a winery is ok by me. J I was lucky enough to sit next to Kevin on Day…

Talent42 Review - The Open Web: Recruiting Passive Talent In Today's Competitive Market

I don't know many tech recruiters who don't at least have a grudging appreciation of Dice. Not only was Dice one of the sponsors of Talent42, their new President Shravan Goli gave a presentation on their latest offering, Open Web. I think he said he's been on the job for…

How The Recruiting Animal Show Ruined My Brand

I started blogging on RBC back in May of 2011. I was just about to go back into recruiting, this time as a corporate recruiter. I’d played around the edges of social media for a while, but this was my first attempt at garnering an audience. I was terrified.

The wonderful people at RBC were very welcoming, and even the mean comments were worth something. I made some great online friends and worked with AMAZING people like…

The Agony of Baseball Trades… and Recruiting

As a die-hard Mariners fan since 1994 and dedicated Yankees hater, this week’s trade of Ichiro Suzuki to the Yankees (the YANKEES) just about killed me. Ichiro has been a much loved member of the Bad News Bears Seattle Mariners for 12 seasons. As if his departure wasn’t painful enough, he actually played his first game as a Yankee at Safeco Field against the Mariners. It was so bad that when a hiring manager stopped by my desk shortly after I heard the news, he…
