Video Interviewing and Your Recruiting Strategy

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent plenty of time trying to convince you to try this, that and the other thing to…

Blogging is not a new phenomenon and has been around for quite a while. Many people including artists, celebrities, politicians, and many significant others have experimented with running blogs and many have been successful in their venture.

Back on British soil: The impact of a stronger UK economy on recruitment in the pharmaceutical industry

At the height of the economic downturn, confidence in the UK’s economy dropped. In a bid to reduce manufacturing costs and stabilise investments, many pharmaceutical companies took these processes abroad. As a consequence, some of our highly skilled, domestic labour force went with it and project availability in the UK changed. Today, Britain’s economy is…

Critical Thinking

I attended an excellent webinar on Critical Thinking today.  The speaker sighted some interesting statistics about how much need there is for training in Critical Thinking.  Executives view Critical Thinking as one of the most important needs for employees and there is a huge skills gap.  Higher education is not teaching / training people in critical thinking skills and college graduates are assessed by upper management as very lacking in that area.  Critical Thinking is one of the most…

Tom Petty, Blogging Copycats, and YOU

Recently, Sam Smith, a young UK crooner had to pay royalties from his hit “Stay with Me” to Tom Petty, due to similarities in the chorus to “Won’t Back Down”. This isn’t the first instance where Tom Petty, his lawyers or his fans have insisted that the rock legend was being copied by a younger musician or band. And while when listening to the songs in question, you can’t…

A Radical Reductionist Analysis of the "Purple Squirrel" Idiom

Really?  "Purple Squirrel"?

Is that the best you can come up with to describe an 'unfindable' candidate?

I remember seeing red squirrels for the first time in 1976, in the Vienna Graveyard, while I made my pilgrimage to the tombs of Beethoven, Schoenberg, the Strausses, Schubert, and other great Viennese super-composers.  "Rock-stars", if you will, to reinvent another overused phrase.

I had never seen red squirrels, before, so I was pretty amazed with them, as there were…

Pymetrics

Silicon-Valley superstar/rockstar/billionaire Vinod Khosla (his brother is a professor at Stanford, I believe) has provided an infusion of Venture Capital to an interesting and very different career-oriented website called Pymetrics www.pymetrics.com; which actually provides some very interesting interactive tests to evaluate skills, traits, talents, etc.

I learned that I have a high degree of skepticism, am very undeterred by my own mistakes,…

The staffing industry can quickly elevate its reputation by more consistently providing talent on demand, right when it is needed. This not only delivers tremendous value; it is how firms can be rewarded with a…

Who is NOT suitable for us? What candidate pre-selection really means

Pre-selection is an efficient and cost-effective early step of the recruiting process, with the goal to filter out candidates that do NOT match the job profile. It’s called negative selection: the ability to identify and deselect the people that will not perform well in the job.

Then there is the classical positive selection: which of the suitable candidates are best suited to the job requirements and the team? Logically, a successful hire (meaning…
