FAILURE SEEMS TO BE NATURES’S PLAN FOR PREPARING US FOR GREAT RESPONSIBILITIES...http://budurl.com/gzdy
a specific opening/need or even if there is no advertised need but just feel they will fit in well my clients environment and tech stack.
And all that being said is the method of email blasting really an effective approach? Isn't this one of the major problems in our industry, the lack of personal interaction...? If I was on the other side of the fence as an employer or client I would laugh and instantly delete it.
It reminds me of agencies/recruiters that blast resumes out hoping they stick somewhere when the candidate has no idea his resume is being farmed out...And don't get me started there...ha!
...just saying...seems counter productive to me.
Thank you for insight and comment Brian,
nderstanding the candidate experience so that is something I will definitely look into.
Amy - I got talking to a headhunter at an event I attended a couple years ago and I instantly had a million questions for her so I went home and tried to learn as much as I could. I guess I'm drawn to the unpredictable nature of the job and that you have to be smart and good with people to be able to deliver results. I like the idea of being the only one in charge of my success. Let me know when I start sounding too starry-eyed ;)
PS - Loved your appearance on the Animal Show!…
for help. This is a community based on having a network and you build your network by helping people connect and grow. On Facebook where this was originally posted, almost 50 different recruiters reached out almost instantly, ready to help in any way they could with their contact information or resources where he should start.
You said yourself, there are so many sources of information available. As someone who has read half those resource, I get why the kid would ask for help.... because most of that junk is crap. If you've never recruited before, you don't know what is snake oil and what's worth your time so he turned to a community of people who might.
ive candidate market. There will be no need for anymore seminars on recruiting passive candidates so we just eliminated another whole group of peasants.
We will then be known as black market body snatchers of course because all recruiters internal and external have been eliminated. We won't have to talk to HR or a line manager because they have been eliminated also. Nobody left but the CEO. Fees? Oh yeah , buddy rat. Amy can haul profiles in a convertible with her long red locks blowing in the wind and i will do the accounting. No wait, accounting will eliminated because we are black market so it's cash only. It will be like a passive candidate ice cream truck. Sell what you can each day, put the rest on ice until tomorrow split the cash and we'll be instantly "mobile". "Mobile at it's finest."…
