Given that there has been a considerable amount of information shared over the last several months that I have been writing Bonus Track, I am, once again referring back to those that I have had the fortune of interviewing.


"Corporate recruiting = post and pray. That drives me nuts. I am a proactive recruiter. When I identify good candidates, I am invested to get them invested." ~Becky Metcalf, Former Bully ;-)

"It's the strong recruiters with the relationships built over the years that will last. It will be the scramblers that will fail. You have to know how to sell and understand really what recruiting is. A recruiter is a recruiter is a recruiter. Forget that you are a specialist in this or that and remember that you are, above all, a recruiter. Your specialty is that you are a recruiter. 'Get your job done and get it done cost-effectively,' keeping your ego in check is also necessary for continued success. I got over my cheap self years ago." ~Sandra McCartt, a recruiter since Lincoln was a cadet

"A lot of the companies that post IT positions, the HR departments, they look strictly for word match because they do not know IT. For instance, if the candidate needs to know a particular programming language, HR simply matches words. But I can look at a job description and résumé and be able to tell almost instantly whether or not the person is a fit. I can see what an HR professional cannot. Not only do I see what is there, but I see what isn't there. If a particular skill or ability is missing from the résumé and that seems out of place to me, I make a simple phone call, and ask the right questions to discern the candidate's ability because I know the job, I know the terminology and that sets me apart." ~Michael Crooks, Director of IT turned Recruiter

"All the things that are going on, how can we attract candidates like never before? How we grow, how we engage? I am looking ahead five, ten, twenty years down the road." ~Joel Cheesman discussing why he launched mJob, almost as "cool and progressive" as his blog.
