Finding the Next Outlet for Recruiting Talent (Tips to Stay Ahead of Other Recruiters)

Want to find the next outlet for recruiting talent? For starters, stay clear of recruiting communities, HR sites and your recruiting industry peers.

Beware of FREE

Over the past few weeks, there have been big changes from well-known technology companies including Facebook, Twitter, and Ning. At the core of many of these changes is a recognition that free only works to a certain point. With this in mind, it makes sense for those who are considering new Social Recruiting services to be cautious whenever a site lists one of its major benefits as free. If you can’t figure out how they are making money now or plan to in the future, it is very risky to base…

What is our attachment to Paper?

It is no secret that technology is moving industries to a paperless system. I still remember writing papers with a pen and paper as opposed to creating a Word Document and using spell check as my spelling guru. At this time, you couldn’t even find lined paper at my desk let alone a pen to write with. Everything is on my hard drive, or back up disk drive, USB, and shared drives.…

There's no crying in Football! or should there be?

I had a great day today. Did one of the things I love doing most of the world. I went to the MCG with my Dad and my son (and cousin and 90,000 of my best friends) to watch an AFL game. I just love it. The atmosphere, the food, the shouting, the passion, the raw combative power and nature of the game.

I get pretty fired up at these games, I'm not my normal calm self, I kind of get involved. However I have had to calm/centre myself, now I have to be an example to my son. I do need to… Continue

What Success Really Means

Success. Is it defined by actions? How you treat others? The number of fills you obtain?

A month ago we had the privilege to meet the American Idol from last year Kris Allen at an event I had won tickets to from our local radio station, among the perks were the opportunity to discuss success with Kris Allen and what it meant to him. It was a brief exchange, but he said in so many words, that hard work pays…

Real Recruiters Don't Post Jobs!

I just picked up a new recruiting project and one of the first things the client said was, "Will you post this job?" And I immediately said, "NO!". I don't think I even let him finish the sentence. I am a real recruiter! I don't post jobs, I hunt for my candidates! Posting is for inexperienced, slacker recruiters. Seriously, if my candidate comes from a posting, what value have I brought to the client?

I pride myself on…
