Nothing wrong with the basics

You just need to do it. Nike has a point!

Switch off your tweetdeck, log out of facebook, put those Recruiting blinkers on and just go for it. In football parlance... get your head down, put your bum up and just do.

We’ll be the first to tell you, things are looking very good. And, as if you needed any more proof, we’re actively hiring technology recruiters and recruiting account managers in our… Continue

Employers will see increased work volumes as the economy recovers,but will “dip their toes” into the labour market at first, hiring flexible solutions initially. But then, as momentum is gained and confidence returns, they will start to…

In Every Dream Job...A Heartache?

“Such a shame, it’s my absolute dream job but I just don’t feel that I can stay”

How often do recruiters hear that?

A candidate said that to me last week. In this case, her problem was her boss...try as she might she found it impossible to have a harmonious working relationship and efforts to work through this had failed. She wants the bits of the jobs that she enjoys – challenge, responsibility, flexibility – but in another environment.

She’s not the first,… Continue

Twitter. Its a chat room on steroids...

To continue the twitter theme from my last post, I thought I'd tell you a story....

So I’m sitting in my office and the IT Director hurries in, shoves a small black box, some cables and a piece of paper into my hand. “I’m off out” he said, “give this a whirl, I think you’ll like it”. And with that, off he trots.

I look at the box – a modem (remember those?!) and know enough to deduce that I needed to plug it into the office phone socket. After an hour or so of…
