There’s a growing disconnect between our educational system and the real world. TechCrunch recently ran a piece detailing how Peter Thiel, the Facebook investor, thinks we’re in a “bubble” of higher education. I think that for the most part, Thiel is right: the “funnel” of higher education is broken, and it’s producing a major distortion in our job market.

Let me start by saying that I think interviews are a two-way process where its as much for the Interviewer (company) to sell themselves as it is the interviewee (candidate)

The first perquisite for building a talent community is passion; and that desire is a core factor on which a community is established. If there is not an affinity for your community within your organization, do not attempt to build a talent community. The lesson of the past 5 years is that most communities will fail if there is not the energy or the motivation to keep the conversation going. …Continue

Funny how the debate about a blog post by Katie McNab has found its way overseas with some quite different points of view UK vs. US.
Of course there is no right or wrong but as I have worked in many areas of recruitment (TPR, In-house, tech vendor, media buyer, website designer, job poster etc) I thought I'd share how I'd run an In-house team.
My approach would be of architect - builder - contract labour.
Part 3 of the ever expanding staffing function!!!
So this is part 3 of the series or in reality it is the 4th installation but we are talking about the 3rd model. Here we are going to focus on the trifunction model also called sourcer(Also can use titles of researcher)/caller(also can be called screener or interviewer)/account manager(also can be called)client manager. (for acronyms see first post in this series)

Why do some candidates look so great on paper but bomb when they are actually placed in a position? Many times it comes down to that elusive buzz phrase: "cultural fit."
Cultural fit means different things to different companies, but it is generally the shared values and principles that form the organization's identity and push it in a certain direction. While cultural fit is an intangible, not to mention hard to define, attribute, it is one of the most important. In…Continue

Recruiters who want to get into contracting often ask us how they can get contracting job orders. Some recruiters we work with say the best way to start is to simply ask current direct-hire clients if they need contractors. They may be surprised to learn that you offer contractors, and you may be surprised how many contracting job orders you get as a result!
Here are five other questions that can help you get more contracting job…Continue

This is a topic that I am writing about that has been on my mind recently beacuase of a letter....Dear John and the response letter titled....Dear Katie. I am sure you all have read it. If not, please read them both. It is a great conversation and I think it really makes you think about what type of recruiter that you want to be.
I am going to start with 2 types of Agency or 3rd Party Recruiters. Not sure what to call them, so I am going to call them Recruiter A and…Continue
On this blog, I’ve been talking a lot about candidate drop-off rates and how you can minimize them during your recruiting process. But I wanted to take a step back and examine who is actually dropping off during the recruiting process and why having a candidate drop off can actually be a good thing.
When you are looking at the…Continue

Today is another addition to those “literary posts” that I have already shared with you. This day is a day we take some additional advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world and your recruiting department, because what Shakespeare taught us about love and war, he can also teach us about business. These lessons are most applicable to your Internal Recruiting Staff. Today’s topic: Othello.
