When A Recruitment Fee Is Prohibitive To A Candidate's Chances

I chose to address the above question after 3 similar conversations I had last week with candidates who wanted me to submit their resumes for roles they were not qualified for. My response to them was that my recruiting fee would be prohibitive to their candidacy. And they had no clue what I meant and asked me to explain...

Let's get something out of the way. External recruiters aren't outsourced or "extra" HR. We aren't here to merely funnel any and all resumes to clients so they can…

Recruiters need to grow their client base. Yes, even you.

One of the most astonishing responses we encounter when informing prospective clients of the importance of having and maintaining a high-functioning, well-designed website is, “I have plenty of clients. I don’t need new ones.” I believe you’d be hard pressed to examine a successful business that stopped seeking to grow its base. Another diversion to the idea…

ResumeBot — Cool new way to make a Resume

Resumes in their current form have grown staid.

The standard, one-page document listing out all your achievements is boring.

Now that is not to say that it does not have its benefits. The medium is easy for recruiters to quickly skim through hundreds of resumes at a time.

But what about when someone seeks you out? When someone lands on your…

Diversity in your workplace

Be deliberate about making it so

Unless you’ve been in a cave lately you have noticed the media making noise about diversity in the workplace. Some high profile companies have landed in hot water over a reported lack of diversity and even harassment. I truly don’t believe that most startup companies intend to lack diversity…

Diversification in Tech: The Key to a Better ROI

As I discussed a few weeks ago, diversification within the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) sector is a major issue. Although the majority of the workforce is comprised of women, very few women have tech jobs. And a similar issue is posed with minorities. Diversification within the tech industry is a slow-going revolution. Which strikes me as…

How Many Recruiters Should I Work With?

I appreciate everyone’s enthusiastic response to the idea I posted last week. For those of you that missed it, my idea was to take all of the questions I get and post them as articles. I realized that people have started to ask me the same questions, and it occurred to me that a lot of people have legitimate questions about how contingency recruiters work, and about the recruiting process. My idea was to solicit questions and I can pick one to answer and post on a weekly basis. This doesn’t…

I pretty consistently read the articles on ERE and have done so for years. Many of the articles are geared towards showing innovation in recruiting and how we could all be doing things better. Other times, you get articles that tell you things that are obvious but so many companies still are behind the ball on.

Forget Millennials – try the iGeneration!

Millennials are lazy, expect everything to be handed to them and they’re impatient about it. Well that’s what we’ve all read over the last few years.
