I'm a veteran of the online recruitment industry. In 2012 I sold my first company AllCountyJobs.com, and now I spend my time as a  recruitment marketing consultant to job boards, HR tech startups and employers who need help with digital recruiting. 

My colleagues call me the "Mad Scientist of Online Recruiting" because I'm always experimenting with new tech. It's a badge I wear with pride.

Please check out my podcast called "RecTech" which will teach you about how technology can help you recruit.

"I looked at indeed trends and "relocation assistance" is a term that is on the rise with job seeker searches. The question is with such a tight employment market should Relocation be on the table for every hard to fill role?"

Hear What the Ecommerce Recruiter Has to Say

If you don't know Harry Joiner, you should. He's been using EcommerceJobs.com for years to recruit the best and brightest in online retail. He uses a great domain name to bring in referrals and he barely uses LinkedIn.I think you'll find my 30 minute conversation with him interesting to say the least.A few quotes from the show;Recruiters are like real estate agents, I think the law of 80-20, or even 90-10 sort of applies in this space. You probably have 10% of the recruiters making 90% of the…See More

Small events like these are great because you can make personal connections and get a deep dive into topics that relate to the everyday recruiter. Some pics are below but here are some things I jotted down I thought were interesting.Some recruiters from a large online retailer were there. They said their ATS contains 12 million resumes. Imagine having to search that big data!Wish lists: recruiters in the…See More

Why Job Boards Are the Ultimate Passive Income Stream

When I sold my job board company back in 2012 I was only spending 15 hours of my time each week running the business. It was an amazing passive income stream. Clients were loyal and kept coming back regularly to post their jobs. After 13 years online the sites essentially ran themselves.

Today I meet a lot of others who are experiencing that same feeling as they operate their job boards online. A job board that works is essentially an automatic revenue…

Why It's Time to Change the Way You REJECT Candidates

I spoke to the head of Talent at Johnson & Johnson recently who told me one of the easiest things employers can do to improve their candidate experience is to rewrite your communication templates within your ATS. Especially your REJECTION templates, to sound less dreadful so that candidates don't head to Glassdoor and rant about you not hiring them.…

Get on Google Jobs by Starting Your Own Job Board

In my consulting business over the past year I have been contacted by a growing number of staffing firms and independent recruiters who are looking to launch their own job board.
