Analyzing the "RecruiterSpam" Problem

Once upon a time, and a beri-beri good time it was, there was a poorly-researched article about e-recruiters in The Atlantic magazine recently, which prominently featured me, without acknowledgment, and without any effort at journalistic integrity or any effort to determine the truth of the…

Recruiting Vegas-Style: Metrics, Opportunities, and Determination

I am a big fan of METRICS. Year after year, they are the best way to gauge your performance & effort, and the ROI accompanying your output. Some recruiters drill down to "dollars per dial" (CASH-IN / CALLS) to measure how they are doing compared to years past.

That being said, the recruitment industry provides all of us with a tremendous…

Why People Leave their jobs - #1 Reason!

After combing through countless books, articles, and various online posts - the #1 reason for people leaving a company is their direct boss.  Bosses have the ability to change, enhance or ruin a work environment.  And they can do it quickly.  So if bosses are the number one reason, why do we have so many poor ones?  Training.  Let me put it better, the lack of training.  Bosses, leadership, or management - however you describe the people that oversee your day to day life; are the glowing…

Using LinkedIn to Find Recruiters

Recruiters are a great source for finding a job that will fit your need and skill set.  They help you through the interview process and try to help prepare you for your interviews.  The best thing about having a recruiter help you is that they have already done most of the leg work.  They know the right contacts for certain companies and have built relationships with the people that work there.  

Social networking is extremely important in today’s society.  It’s a good way to…

Is a Cover Letter for Social Media and IT Jobs Necessary?

Cover letters can be a great way to get your foot in the door at a company that you want to work for.  A cover letter is usually sent in the body of your email with an attached resume when applying for a job.  They tend to be of great importance in this stage of your job search because it highlights your qualifications, skills, and why you would be an asset for the company.  Career Columnist Eve Tahmincioglu, says that…

How much is your time worth?

When making any decision in life, you need to process and interplay a variety of factors to determine between a variety of choices you have at your disposal.  When sifting through these choices you’ll see differences in money, production and overall enjoyment that a certain decision will bring.  But the key deciding factor is most always time.  Do you have enough time to do this choice or better yet is it worth your time to do (with the other choices that are available to…

The constant motto when people graduate college or the whispers over the years from concerned parents is "Do what you love!"  Well, let us just put it out there - that is wrong!  Do what you love is such a generic phrase it nearly applies to all situations and to pin that upon one of the most critical parts of your life - career choice - let us just say is not a wise decision.  Why don't people say "Do what you are good at"?  Does it sound corny or mean spirited?  I don't believe so and I…

A job description isn't a sales tool and never will be.

For reasons best known to themselves, many recruiters bemoan the absence of a decent job description and person spec from a client. I agree it’s frustrating when what you get is a series of seemingly unrelated one liners in terms of a job description and just the basic facts about the skills and experience you need in order to do the role, but, the emphasis should be on you, the recruiter to eke out the information from your client that will sell the job, not… Continue

Meaning Over Money; How Companies Can Add Value to Entry-Level Positions

With the economy beginning to turn around, entry-level job seekers are starting to shop around the job market instead of jumping at the first company who offers them a paycheck. Choosing a first job is a tough decision for anyone, but for recent college graduates, it’s their first leap into the real world.

A few months prior to graduation; my classes, email inbox and seemingly every conversation I had with my parents revolved around my job search. I hadn’t even ordered my cap and… Continue
