Every day I go over Putney Bridge on my way to work. This may seem like minutiae of my daily commute in South West London but this weekend Putney Bridge becomes the focus for millions of people all over the world. The reason?...it’s the starting point for the University Boat Race, and has been for 154 years.
Now you may think that two teams of amateur rowers from the UKs top 2 universities battling it out for 20 minutes over 4 ¼ miles is hardly a reason for so many people to be… Continue

As someone who has worked as a Recruiter I understand how important social media is in finding quality job search candidates. I've used tools like chat rooms, online communities, blogs, Twitter, FaceBook, and even internet dating sites to source and place candidates. As a blogger, I have used Blogging4Jobs
, my blog to develop an online personal and… Continue

We've been discussing how the Great Recession started out as a massive credit collapse, resulting in a deflationary cascade. With declining wealth, incomes and revenues, people and corporations have had to embrace some extreme cost-cutting measures. As a result, the significant advances in technology over the last couple of decades are now being deployed in ways that are drastically changing the employment landscape.
Employment is not the only aspect of our economy that is being… Continue

At V Selective we are noticing that the 'Job Scene' seems to be on the up, with clients confidence raising and jobs being phoned in at a fast rate!
Nowhere is this more relavent than on our Training Sector / FE Sector Recruitment desk! What with the economy, changes in funding and possible changes in government we've seen an influx of NVQ Assessors on the market - recently made redundant!
Confidence is now returning and it seems that the sector is on the up! What does anyone… Continue

For the past 7 years, I worked as an HR business partner, both internally and externally, though have never worked directly in an HR department. Within my previous organization, JobsInNH

One of the most important take-aways from ERE Expo did not have to do with recruiting. It had to do with Corporate Philanthropy, Responsibility, and Volunteer Commitment.
As the host of Compassionate HR

I have often heard that a good plan is essential for success, and for the most part I agree. That being said though, a good plan was definitely something that I was lacking when I entered the recruiting industry. I began my career as a recruiter out of necessity. Why necessity? Well I had just lost my job, and it was necessary that I have money to eat, pay bills, and ultimately survive. A new career was not in my game plan by any stretch of the imagination, and recruiting was foreign to me… Continue

Over the last few weeks I have spoken to many people about mobile recruiting strategy. I believe we still have a number of marketing managers who don't believe that Mobile Internet is popular or
mainstream. I have one thing to say to anyone with that view - WAKE UP!
Not only has Mobile Internet arrived, it is growing - rapidly. Today there is an estimated 10m UK Mobile… Continue

Recently I responded to a Twitter

The above tweet refers to internal… Continue

Plugging into the Cloud promises to eliminate the need for costly on-site servers, complex installed software, backup worries and disruptive and expensive upgrades.

I recently had a company terminate a placed candidate 7 days after the 60 day guarantee expired. They first asked for a full refund (28K), then have asked to negotiate or no longer work with the company.
I have been on the other end of this situation and they expect the refund without any question.

Sourcing can mean a few different things in an organization, depending on your function. For example, some may immediately think of procurement. However, to a corporate recruiter, a sourcer, or sometimes also called a researcher, is a strategic member of the recruitment team who partners with a full life-cycle recruiter and whose job is to proactively find… Continue

I was thinking about putting this up on my career advice blog for job seekers--but thought it was better for my fellow recruiters. Hope you can relate
A few days ago I was talking to a man who was referred to me by a social media friend. He was interested in having me help him find a job. We spoke about his background, and possible jobs.
His background was not similar to positions I recruit on regularly so I gave him a little advice about who he should contact for jobs. I… Continue
