being integrated into what many recruiters are already doing offline. However, it seems as though you have already taken the time to trial these tools to achieve your goals and found it unproductive. So, I would definitely agree; it doesn't make sense to continue using tools that don't work.
s to use a PhD or Dr in the name.
I have gone back forth on this, but realised we are a living in a global world these days and culturally in different parts of the world people view these differently. I finally settled on a Dr in front of mine, mostly to remind myself that I did spend a lot years of my life trying to achieve it.…
t re behavioural intervewing. Using a third-party expert helps the policy you are implementing to be viewed as one that is best-practice rather than 'HR just complicating things'
I have found interviewing and candidate assessment articles from Dr Wendell Williams (available for free on www.ere.net) to be especially well-written, logical, credible and accessible for hiring managers when they want to understand why they should change their existing interview habits. Of course, having a directive from the CEO or COO never hurts!…
st' aside, why would a female employee be terminated for her sexual habits? In the male world, guys are given pats on the back for how many women we can hook up with . . . but when women do the same, they are treated as whores and risk termination? I don't understand this double standard - frankly, it's not right in my eyes.
Sarah Jessica Parker debunked the male-Puritanic view that women can only be with one man in "Sex in the City" . . . but then the same woman recruiter lives in fear of her male boss looking down on her and finding a reason to let her go?
Ironically, I haven't read one female response to this thread indicating grounds for termination (my apologies if I overlooked one, but that speaks to the limited response from women in the first place) . . . yet there are male recruiting mgrs here witch-hunting for promiscuous women. Wmen who make their own decisions about who they want to sleep with are exercising their own human right ("Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness . . . and Sleeping-With-Whoever-The-Heck-They-Want".)
I'm not saying that the men here are expecting women to wear full-length burkas, but to claim that a woman's sexual habits are grounds for termination is a back-door method of discrimination. Frankly, it's not the 1950s' and we don't like in a "Beaver Cleaver" world, so I think women should be able to make their own decisions about what they want to do with their own sex lives - sorry, Recruiting Managers, but how or how much nookie your female recruiters are getting is none of your business.

tive articles, ads, etc. BTW: my "content" observation in this post was meant as a general view from assorted sites, not specific to RBC. I realize there is a mixed audience here with diverse preferences and perspectives on what we find interesting and useful. Plus, I know all of you are working diligently behind the scenes to keep RBC as awesome as possible.
Mike - thanks again for sharing your thoughts. Whenever I post anything anywhere I'm always prepared for disagreement, differences of opinion and being called out for being a no-nothing fool by someone that doesn't care for my ideas, way of thinking or how I communicate. It might be odd, but I'd actually prefer that to getting no reaction at all. That said, I agree it is not productive when comments venture into personal attacks or ridicule of another person's point of view or any of the other things you listed. Everyone has different sensibilities and sensitivities when it comes to expressing opinions, sarcasm, snark, cheeky remarks and blunt feedback. RBC has always been a tough crowd and I think that is part of what creates an interesting atmosphere. You've outlined some pertinent reminders - AND - Staffing Karma sounds like a great title for your next blog :)
Amy - full of charm!!! And those other things you mentioned on animals' show...
Happy weekend, all! …
in time to benefit from an investment boost for research projects in the country.
More than 700 jobs are to be created in research centres north of the border thanks to a £9.3 million cash injection from the European Regional Development Fund, reports the Scotsman.
First Minister Alex Salmond made the announcement, revealing that Scottish universities, including Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Napier, are among the beneficiaries of the funding.
He is quoted by the newspaper as saying that it is vital for Scottish academics and entrepreneurs to "have access to support, particularly in this challenging economic climate".
This backing can help them "stay at the forefront of their fields, realise their potential, seize opportunities, expand, invest and contribute to sustainable economic growth", he added.
Recruitment consultants were recently advised by a peer to get into a habit of only handling things once to maximise their time.…
