Hiring The Right Personality

A large part of the human capital supply chain is the acquisition and sourcing of many talents – but the process of obtaining these assets in the first place is also an important detail. Resumes are read, interviewees are spoken to, and decisions are made. Quality hiring practices are too frequently abandoned because of the inconvenience of finding the proper employee in a sufficient amount of time. There are a number of ways to ease the process and the one I’m addressing today is…

5 Timeless Recruiting Blog Posts Everyone Should Read

With the speed at which social media moves, can a blog post truly be referred to as “timeless?”

Of course. Working within the recruiting software industry, I see first-hand how the most modern features we offer our customers are essentially designed to solve the same core problems.

Similarly, messaging designed to solve core recruiting challenges can always be seen as timeless, even if this messaging is contained in a blog post that…

Is a Recession the Ultimate Fitness Test for Recruiters?

Five Things That Recruiters Can Take Away From the Recession

With every recession, recruiters learn lessons—many of them hard lessons—and this latest recession was no exception. Top Echelon Network interviewed a number of its recruiters and asked them what they’ve learned as a result of the recession.

1. Staying positive is more important than you realize.

Being positive is more than just a frame of mind. It also translates into every interaction that you have with candidates and clients and can ultimately affect how…

Does 'Productivity Down = Hiring Up?' Only Time Will Tell

Many companies have held off hiring new employees for quite some time. The question is how much longer can they continue to do so?

From all indications, not too much longer.

On Tuesday, the Labor Department released its worker productivity numbers for the second quarter. The numbers weren’t that pretty, since they indicated productivity fell 0.9% during the second quarter. That represents the first time that productivity has…

Know How Good Your Candidate's Credit Is? You Should

What Does the National Unemployment Rate Mean to Recruiters?

The numbers get thrown around in the national news media all the time. Nearly eight million jobs lost during this recession . . . with only about 600,000 of those jobs recovered . . . and the national unemployment rate expected to hover around 10% for quite some time.

But what…

What’s the Future Hold for Direct-Hire Placements?

There's no doubt that the most recent recession (or current one, depending upon who you talk to) was much different than previous ones. As a result, it stands to reason that the recovery will be much different, as well. According to a recent article ("Say Good-Bye to Full-Time Jobs With Benefits"), those who work a full-time job in the future may count…

B-Level Candidates? Then It's a B-Level Company

When the hiring manager at one of your clients informs you that unemployed candidates will no longer be considered for their job openings, the best question you can ask them is also the simplest:


It's not the only question, by any stretch of the imagination, but just like any objection, it must be overcome by finding out the true reason for the objection. Once you find that reason--and are able…

Unemployed A-Level Players: A Hidden Opportunity for Recruiters

As I stated in my previous blog post, it's becoming more and more difficult to place the unemployed. Some companies are omitting them from the job search process, sight unseen, to the point where they're telling job seekers not to apply in their job posting and…

Should Unemployed Job Seekers be Ruled Out? Some Think So

Driving Costs Out of the Human Capital Supply Chain - an interview with Dustin Mattison from Logipi

Having helped more than 800 staffing and recruiting firms automate their operations, Tim Giehll, CEO of Bond Talent US, brings an interesting perspective to the subject of continuous process improvement, and he does not believe the days of Six Sigma are over.

Now of course this won't be everyone's experience, but there is a reason why this is becoming a growing phenomenon. These people have figured out that the people… Continue
