Recruiting is not a HOW business but a WHO business

Best practices. You know you’ve read that teaser a gazillion times.  One place you see this phrase are on popular recruiting websites and conferences.   The REALITY is this. Recruiting is ACTUALLY more about WHO than HOW.

Unfortunately, recruiters are lured away from the WHO and into HOW…

Tracking Metrics

Tracking Metrics

Rich Peterson knows there are loads of articles about how the metrics behind recruiting drive the hiring process.

Recruiting metrics provide us an opportunity to take a analytical approach to hiring by allowing us to quantify the hiring process. Tracking day-to-day details provide us a look at the big picture.

Almost all HR metrics record history. It has little value in the fast-changing business world where any of your numbers, positive or…

Applicant volume is vanity, relevance is sanity.

All this fuss about Social Recruiting and Recruitment as a Marketing function. Marketing successfully implemented, drives purchase decisions, inspires a call to action, and, if broadcast and amplified on social media as a channel, should drive…

Why Courtesy Interviews are always worth the time

Talent Acquisition is a lot like courtship/dating. In Corporate Talent Acquisition - you have to be a grade-A slut, totally promiscuous, and with rocket-powered libido. That means never settling down with anyone permanently, constantly sourcing new prospects to date and get to know, and cutting…

Language is the cruel mistress of culture

There are days when I love my job as a Talent Management Pro. 

There are days when I want to end my own life by throwing myself into a cage full of wild animals, ideally gorillas who are under the influence of amphetamines, and let them rend my body limb from limb. …

Diversity Recruitment Problems Over Analyzed

Recently when I presented the “Secrets of a Successful Job Search” at the University of Utah, I asked the participants “How many of you feel you have been discriminated because of your age?” About a third of the people raised their hands.

When you read about diversity recruitment most people discuss systems and solutions but I have yet to see anyone discuss the root problem. Possibly the reason that you do not see the root cause is that most people who write on the subject are outside…

It’s 3:00am and I’m churning away on business, tweets, discussions, blogs and paperwork …suddenly, silently, a brightly lit and light flashing ambulance rolls up just outside across the way…

It immediately reminded me of poet John Donne’s famous last lines from his poem, “For whom the bell…

Doing More by Working Less

Ages ago, when I was in Architectural school, modernism ruled the day, and most students embraced the motto “Less Is More” (Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe).  This aesthetic of minimalism had a foundational philosophy of simplicity – don’t surround people with too…

Changing Tides: The Workforce is Shifting

The tides are changing…oh, yes they are.  Hang on.  Get ready.  The shift is happening, again.

First, let’s frame where we’re at.  The Millennial Generation (those born between 1980 and 1991) is emerging as the predominate workforce.  They are a larger group, collectively, than the Baby Boomers (those born…

Attracting Passive Candidates?

When I attend recruiting conferences and Human Resource meetings nationwide, inevitably the conversation works its way to attracting the Holy Grail of recruitment – the Passive Candidate.


It is valuable to listen carefully to that person’s definition of whom the Passive Candidate is.  Generally companies define the Passive Candidate as someone who is doing a job at a high level within another company; and is perfectly content to remain…

The Recruiting Profession is SO DEAD and LinkedIn has killed it, and they are unstoppable.

This was a comment on this thread, which I decided to just reformat as a blog post, adding a few lines here and there to extend/clarify.

The evergreen "Recruiters are finished" will never, ever, ever come true. Firms have a qualification view of people, while Recruiters have a market view of people. The two mindsets will never go away, and the market view is the more powerful and accurate…

Be Careful What You Wish For: You Just Might Get It!

We all know what it feels like to want to change jobs: work in a job we hate, or have lost our passion for, or simply had enough of the boss!! Sometimes that ideal new job seems elusive. The search may be discouraging and you are tempted to take just any job. However taking just any role may not be the right fit for you or the employer. We…

"Life's A Climb-But the View Sure is Great!"-Mylee Cyrus-Hannah Montana The Movie

It was a year and a half ago, where I wrote my first blog on when the forum was just getting started. It was 6 months ago, where the economy stole me away from my true career aspirations in staffing, where my heart and soul have been forged and honed. Here I stand in the midst of the… Continue

Back to School Time - SEO Style

Although SEO seems to be the new buzz in recruiting web 2.0 strategies, it has actually been used for years as a tactic to increase sales for online businesses.

SEO and how it fits into the recruiting industry is greatly misunderstood. I completely agree with Marvin in that SEO is not enough , but it makes me wonder who said that it was the golden ticket to begin with.

SEO Is… Continue

What makes me a Smart Recruiter

I have been a recruiter for a dozen years so far so I have survived burnout, a recession, and the booms. I am a smart recruiter because I know my limitations and never let them get in the way of succeeding. I don't think that recruiting is any harder than any other job, but it does require hard work, discipline and a little luck.
