Recruiters...Lend A Hand

Most professionals give back in myriad ways. This forum exists to acknowledge (and inspire) ways that recruiters and their companies can coach and support others- contribute their Time, Talent and Treasure to help those who need a hand.

Keeping Candidates Warm: Do the Cons outweigh the Pros?

My CareerXroads business partner, Mark Mehler, got this short and well-written email this morning from a candidate who was just stumped and a bit frustrated by what is still a typical and traditional recruiting practice.

I'll let you read it, then describe the results and a point or two.

Good Morning Mark,

I was chatting with (Mark’s oldest daughter) last night.  While catching up,…

The Candidate's Experience: Is it just Smoke and Mirrors?

I'm planning to be at RecruitFest in Boston on the day before it opens (I'm taking Amtrak up from NJ). So, Wednesday night (perhaps at a wine bar) and, again Thursday during the day I'll be looking for a lively discussion on the pros and cons of the Candidate Experience. I might bring a poster like the one above. Then again, maybe not.…

Tip of the Hat to N'awlins 5 years Later
Katrina changed me forever...but I Am Still New Orleans...

I'm going to play this new song by Vince Vance laced with his haunting refrain (above) this weekend and hoist a few to my favorite city. Recruiting may not be synonymous with New Orleans but it's workforce challenges can be found in…

From Where I Sit...There Are a Lot of Empty Seats

I flew United for the first time in a decade last week. It was a lesson in customer as well as candidate experience I won't forget anytime soon.

The customer service people were very nice. When I stepped up before boarding and told them I normally fly Continental- had in fact booked my ticket through Continental but my mileage (50-100k per year for the last decade) and status weren't highlighted on the ticket as they should be and then asked whether 1st class had all…

How prepared are you to handle a candidate who happens to be disabled?

I'm looking for some baseline practices (present or absent) in the recruiting process that impacts how we welcome...or not... people who may be eminently qualified but happen to have a visible disability. This survey should take 10 minutes

Assuming someone got far enough to reach a corporate or third party recruiter via phone, tty, etc. I give most recruiters the benefit of the doubt and assume they have sufficient… Continue

Hi Gerry!
I'm doing well, sorry I missed you this week at ERE. It seemed like a great event. I watched much of it via live stream when I wasn't traveling.

Hey Gerry, FYI, that twitter account is now available for you. I'd grab it quick, I already had 5 followers without advertising it at all. Talk to you soon.

I'll call you about noon EST (9:00 PST). Didn't realize we are stepping on your trademark. We published a book named "Career Crossroads: Finding the Perfect Career For This Time In Your Life" and its been convenient to shorten it to careerxroads. Working today to change that. . . Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I also watched a video of you on xtremerecruitingtv. Interesting business model you have. It sounds very successful. Talk to you Saturday.

Hi Gerry, CareerXroads? Wow, it sounds like we DO need to talk. When is a good time for you? Friday is full for me, but what about Saturday? Or sometime next week.

Hi Gerry,
New to the group and wanted to get feedback regarding obtaining a PHR/SPHR certification. Are there any recommended study guides other than what is in the hrci site. Thanks.
