CT revolution. I am in business in Dhaka and trying expand my network and business potential.
I am in training and development, market based research, consulting, surveying, ICT services, etc.
ank you ma'am one hit wonders out there! Old school is certainly the bridge building way but I am not sure about new school. More hard-nosed and transactional rather than long term relationship based? Who knows if they won't answer the question :)…
rom helping people get into the right place and building on strengths. Those findings come all the time. Look at the Jim Collins' Good to Great research, or the Gallup work, or others that cover a broad spectrum. Training is good, rules and policies are good. Matching people into the right roles is even better.…
for what we say. The single tweeter owed it to the establishment to be factual & one wonders if she brought it to the theatre's attention first or simply tweeted because it sounded entertaining. Everyone who spread the false info then becomes culpable. We do have the power to ruin a brand's reputation all the more reason to carefully consider what we are sharing and hold ourselves to a higher standard.…

ways to make a great impression is to go into the interview knowing everything available to know about the product or process and to be able to anticipate and solve the key problems before the interviewer even asks "how would you solve this." Works wonders!! My friend, who was a PhD postdoc that worked with a couple of Nobel winners did this, and came away with a fantastic offer and a job she loves.…

t 100% of the benefits/results. That's actually a very common thread in the Internet marketing community as well.
Recruiters can partner with real estate agents (folks moving in need jobs, folks relocating need homes), the local Chamber of Commerce (offer free job hunting seminars), gyms (health is always important) etc.etc.etc.etc.
You just have to think outside the box.…
ader" and while I read blogs do not generally spend the time writing or contributing as frankly I am busy trying to fill job needs.
I respect those with a great deal of solid and successful industry experience (do not always agree with them) and also look to learn from those fresh in the business. The one thing I love aobut our industry is that in my opinion there are no hardfast right or wrong answers/strategies on most things. It is all about doing what works best for you and what makes you successful. It is about creativity, hard work, trial and error, networking, studying and coming up with what makes you a successful recruiter.
I am not one that desires to pay "thought leaders" thousands of dollar to blindly follow their teachings as they may not be right for me. I do not profess to know it all because what makes me click may be frowned on by others.
That being said in my world as I have evolved as a recruiter I make these personal assumptions:
1. The phone beats all in terms of building a relationship and solidifying a possible candidate.
2. Referrals are still your best source of finding quaity candidates
3. Networking and using Social Media to search for candidates is much more effective (and cost effective) than using the big job boards. I no longer utilize the big job boards and have replaced with Social Media and smaller targeted job boards. During this current year I have placed 8 individuals that I have found on Linkedin and subsequently contacted (phone) and successfully recruited. Could never say that for the big job boards. I consider myself a strong and important player on Linkedin and have the placements to prove it!
4. Posting jobs have become almost a waste of time due to the junk that you recieve. I have cut down on job posting by about 50% and focus on job aggregators and targeted sites.
5. Sourcing (Social Media and good old fashioned headhunting/cold-calling) has worked wonders, does work wonders and will continue to work wonders. On hard to find needs even on the CORP side I still call competitors for names, headhunt for that hard to find person just as I did in my younger days. I work on the CORP side but still maintain a headhunter alias that I use to recruiter from the competition (hope they are not reading this).
I could go on but I guess what I am saying is that nobody has the right to tell me what works and I do not have the right to make others do as I do. It is all a personal style learned through experience and what is good for the goose is not always good for the gander.
Always keep an open mind for learning and as my kids do utilize 20% of what is told to you and throw out the other 80%. Keep growing, stay fresh and keep making $$.
