Well, it matters, but with the right technique you can make up for a lack of size in many cases if client is willing…
The prevailing market wisdom is that the best candidates will go to the big companies and the smaller (SMEs, start-ups, trading companies, privately held firms) companies are left with what is left. This is not always the case and it can make a huge difference in the long run for your firm to get the best people now.
We placed a candidate today in a… Continue

At the local market this morning I rounded a corner and witnessed the most astounding sight: a young mother on the business end of a grocery trip, accompanied by three boys under the age of five.
It took a nanosecond to sum up the chaos: while mommy was speaking to a clerk a short distance away, the 4 year old was methodically loading up the basket with jars of jam. In the spirit of cooperation, his younger brother (about 2 and a half I think, seated in the basket and clearly… Continue

so the economy has taken a slight downturn......or haven't you noticed? seriously though, the economy does effect our business. just not necessarily in the way some people believe.
typically, hr and recruiting are areas that are slashed during economic downturns. i believe this is because we have not made a strong enough case to the decision makers about the value we add to the organization. In times like these, we need to be more vigilant in finding the right people for our… Continue

In a somewhat interesting conversation on ERE
, I've observed a trend in response to a Talent Acquisition Director seeking information on how to implement a Sourcing Process into the current mix. Fellow TA Directors seem to be extremely guarded against any non-TA thought processes or insights from 'outside-the-bubble' per se. Being a… Continue

I came across a newsworthy post this morning on RotorBlog,
which is a “Social Networking and Online Communications Blog” written by Andrew Rosen who is also the Founder of one of our favorite sites Jobacle.
Rosen is spot on when he states that “LinkedIn has been dominating the business social network niche, there’s nothing wrong with that since it has been able to answer the social networking… Continue

I wanted to write something short and sweet about a guy who has over time proved himself to be someone who does good for the industry. His name is Paul DeBettignies
and he lives in Minnesota.
Last year Paul started putting on a local Minnesota recruiting conference and said right from the beginning it will be done every quarter. Well, since then he has made good on that and every quarter his… Continue

Late one Friday afternoon a few years ago a client called me with a couple of IT position she needed to fill fast: CV’s reviewed next week, interviews the week after, the job to start the following week. I knew the client well, I knew exactly what she wanted and I knew the positions would be easy ones to fill. So, I posted a couple of well written job adverts on a number of IT Job Boards, comfortable in the knowledge that, come Monday morning, I’d have a plenty of good response.
