I always wondered what the Recruiting Animal looked like. Now, I still don't know. :-)

Talk is cheap but one of the bright lights I've interviewed, and somebody I'd classify as a recruiting visionary, is Todd Bavol. Not only has he built a 14 office, $100 million dollar staffing business, but has successfully added executive search, outsourcing, outplacement and career management to the mix.

These are very nice things to say about a business man with a lot of ability to build and a stockpile on which he's able to do so. But none of your verbiage shows me your definition of what is considered being "visionary."

Most striking thing about this conversation - as Bill points out:

There is a huge demand for healthcare people. So Nadia has no problem getting job orders.

That puts most of the focus on finding, interviewing and marketing candidates.

Hi Bill,
I found Danny's comments to be the kick that I needed today after having 1 client say that hiring plans now are cancelled & 280 are being laid-off and 2 others are postponing "everything" until the 3rd quarter - at the earliest.
Please keep these up.

Excellent Program, one of the better ones relating to our industry

At a time when there is comparatively little recruiting as most employers are not adding to staff I believe it is important to maintain contacts and relationships between 3rd party firms and recruiters and employment professionals.

The best way to do so is to pass on information of value often with regard to what other employers are doing that is cost effective. Examples of employers who have successfully implemented 4 day work weeks or are utilizing temporary or project based workers are areas that should be shared.

At we are finding more and more postings for temporary jobs and project assignments as employers generally do not have to pay benefits for these workers and can also off-board them with little or no expense.

Too many ATS systems on the market already...

A great new way to enhance your candidate’s multi-media portfolio presentation as well as personalization is the free service MyCredentials at Once your candidate's create their own career website, you simply email their custom URL to your hiring managers.

Bill and Thad, great interview. More and more recruiters need to and will begin to accept assessment into their operating practices. Using assessments can save recruiters 40% of their squandered time, not just on screening out the bad apples, but on selecting in the candidates that really do want to find the right opportunity.

Additionally using assessments or and targeted selection interviewing affords the recruiter a unique opportunity to brand themselves as a consultant committed to selection.

There are firms popping up all over that operate inside of the standard of using targeted selection, behavioral interviewing and assessments in their hiring and someday in the not too distant future it will become the norm.
