Coming Up Short: The ATS World

In the early 2000's, I had just started working in recruiting and didn't know anything about the industry or its tools. My first week on the job, the company was implementing a new ATS (Applicant Tracking System). Dave, the guy who was leading the implementation, didn't show up my second day on the job and soon the…

What experience are your candidates getting?

Nine years recruitment experience has made me sensitive to the struggles of a Jobseeker. All too often I hear about the very lengthy and daunting recruitment processes that follow.

Unfortunately for Jobseekers, clicking the ‘apply’ button for that perfect job can mean being redirected to a site and an application process of 6+ pages to complete; an arguably ‘necessary’ requirement for gaining candidate information.

But are the words ‘lengthy’ and ‘daunting’ really the words an…

Recruitment Sourcing Magic – Proper Attitude

When I listen to recruiters discuss sourcing some have an amazing attitude.  They are like Labrador Retrievers on the search – pant, pant, pant, There!  Other recruiters act almost like sourcing is an imposition.  They want to try to find the easiest way to “screen out” candidates.


What is the correct attitude?  Well, recruiters who understand that recruiting is a sales process, enjoy the hunt for the perfect candidate.  Why is their attitude important?

Grocery Markets and Your Corporate Website

You may have noticed that I have an active imagination…Enjoy the ride!


Remember when you finished your last box of cereal and decided to stop quickly on the way home to replace it?  Dinner will be ready soon and this was going to be a very quick stop.  What would happen if your fictional experience at the Grocery store was the same as a group of candidates visiting your corporate website looking for your list of openings and desiring to simply submit their…

The Importance of Agility in Staffing

The nature of the global workforce has rapidly changed.  The idea of getting a job from one company, working their for 30 years, and then retiring is long gone.  Companies need to scale their workforce up and down in order to stay competitive and job seekers have to be more flexible and mobile as well.

This has placed a premium on the need for companies to increase their agility in staffing.  Companies need to source, screen, select and on-board the right talent at an accelerated…

Resume Writing Services: Attractive Nuisance or Clever Candidates?

Resume writing services will tailor a job seekers resume to make them look like the perfect candidate by optimizing it for keyword searching in an applicant tracking system. This may sound like a great investment to the candidate, but how do they affect time-to-hire or interview-to-placement ratios? These services may be able to trick the machine, but a good recruiter is not going to be fooled.

Clever Candidates

Preparing a resume is nerve racking. There are about a… Continue

Creating an Organizational Recruitment Strategy

Recruitment Strategy is probably one of the most misunderstood and misused terms tossed about in our industry today. Try asking your clients and colleagues to define the term, and we guarantee that you will get very different responses. Recruitment Strategy means entirely different things to different recruitment stakeholders (line managers, hiring leaders, HR professionals, recruitment professionals). Still searching for answers…try googling the term or searching through respected industry…

What is “SaaS” and what can it do for your staffing company?

A rapidly growing trend for both small and large companies is the use of Software as a Service (SaaS).

SaaS provides software to customers as an on-demand service rather than the traditional method of delivery software as an on-site installation with upfront costs. Unlike traditional software licensing, where you buy a license and subsequent upgrades, SaaS typically involves yearly or monthly fees to allow access to the software. Once the end user…

Is the recruitment database dead...?

Before I got into recruitment I spent a period of time developing and implementing technology solutions for the recruitment industry. For years ‘the database’ has been a key competitive edge, the USP for many recruitment businesses, especially those that operate in a niche. They guarded it fiercely and bragged about it in equal measure.

How ironic then that…

Job boards and applicant tracking systems

The appeal of applicant tracking systems (ATS) for employers is obvious: they promise to bring order to the often disordered process of managing job applicants. An ATS can theoretically drive all job applicants into a single pipeline, massage their unruly information into neatly ordered database fields set up exactly as the employer desires, and allow HR to actually manage the interactions with applicants.

Sometimes the ATS works well – and sometimes (like all software) it doesn’t.… Continue
