You lost your job or you were not hired because of your activities on social media is a phrase that is both laughable and taunting. Truth is everybody loves social media. It is a free world! It would be a stretch of the truth to say otherwise. For starters, using social media brings to mind the old saying that internet technology has reduced the world to a global village. You can become friends with anyone and from any part of the globe. Think about Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, My…Continue

Barely a day goes by without the word 'culture' featuring heavily in my conversations. It’s become a sort of catch-all phrase and having a ‘great’ one is something lots of agencies can be fiercely proud and protective of - and rightly so. It's also a great get-out-jail-free card when it comes to delivering negative interview feedback; "they're good but we don't feel like they fit our…Continue

We’ve all read of the best habits of highly successful people. However what bothers me the most is the incompetence that we experience on a day to-day basis.

The other day I heard about a friend of a friend who had been out of work. This was a company move and layoff because of the move. No fault of the employee, and by all indications a pretty talented guy.
Regardless of the talent, he’s been looking and hasn’t found anything for about six months. He is an experienced candidate and he interviewed recently for an entry level role. Not the right fit. The company is interested in him and willing to hire him at the entry level or near entry…Continue

It’s a feeling like no other. After months of meetings, projections, and gut-wrenching stress, the decision has been made: your company needs to lay people off. You sit in with the managers as one by one, employees are given the hard news, watching them try to keep a brave face as their world shatters.
Layoffs suck. Whether the people you’re laying off are in the office next door or across the country, the results are the same: your company’s decision is taking away somebody…Continue

Since setting up Davidson Gray to invest in and support recruitment business start-ups, I must have had hundreds of conversations with recruiters considering working for themselves. The biggest reason by far most recruiters settle for a new job rather than setting up, is the desire for security.
However is moving jobs really more secure?
Statistically, 4 out of 5 new recruitment business start-ups don’t last beyond 2 years,…Continue

Imagine a Future where Robots own every aspect of the Recruiting/Staffing process, where the Robots drive down the cost of staffing such that no human recruiter exists ever again. Imagine where Artificial Intelligence in a reality like Sky Net is scratching the surface of ingenuity such that sourcing, screening, recruiting, offers, and closing all are filtered by Machines. …Continue
