Russ Moon's picture

Submitted by Russ Moon on Thu, 04/22/2010 - 9:22am

The answer to the ‘HOW’ is so simple. Ready…… Continue

Downtime or Social Networking Time?

Twitter takes the 'work' out of networking

If you are a seasoned recruiter then it's likely that networking comes easily to you. And by networking I don't mean running around a crowded room, stuffing a business card into some strangers pocket and trying to close 'close a deal'! I mean being able to engage with people you have never met, share some experiences and yes, possibly find some common ground on which to build a business, or personal relationship.

But, like many others from all walks of business life, those at the less… Continue

Stand out in an interview? OK, but not too far out.

You wouldn’t show up at a dinner party you were invited to with a serving of fish in a cooler and ask your host to cook it for you, would you? The host may remember you, but not very fondly.

The Basics - What Are Yours?

Basics – I use this word frequently when talking with my teams. It’s usually during a pep talk “…don’t forget the basics…” or when someone has made a mistake and to me it was a “basic mistake”. Basics – the core skills we use to do our craft. People will argue which basics are more important or what even the basics are for recruiters. Each member of my team has received their recruitment training in a different place, time and environment than me but when I hire a new recruiter I try to see…
