Day 1: Starting from Scratch

And so it goes that sometimes we're our own biggest critic.   I've spent the last four and half years pulling together all of the most robust tools I could find to create "The Avengers" version of a boutique recruiting office. 

We have four busy-body recruiters pounding away on the phones, moving and shaking, making money calls, and always marketing.  I believe our system is unique and we approach everything we do with as must honestly and perseverance we can muster. 

Through a…

Quantity vs. Quality, Reason #1 to Reject Contingency Search

There are many good reasons to reject Contingency Search in any form, but for today’s post, I’ll deal with only one reason.  Quantity vs Quality. In most cases, by no fault of their own, recruiters are forced to produce poor quality work or get left in the dust by other recruiters with a quicker trigger finger. The inherent weakness of Contingency Search lies in this conundrum: The more you endeavor to vet and qualify your candidates, the less likely you…

Fixing the Economy One Hire at a Time - The Reason I Love my Recruiting Job - & The 8 Hire Inspiring Day.

Hello again, everyone! Since the last discusson was very informative, I want to pick the brains of corporate recruiters now. Since I am an agency recruiter and new to client development, I want to know the opinions of recruiters on "the other side" of the game.

The 4 things to expect when you aren't expecting....Recruiting style

By no means is this post meant to be a dig at the recruiting industry, nor a gripe on my career choice.  My purpose of this post is to give some of the newcomers into the industry some sound advice on what to expect.  When I first received the call about working for a staffing company, I had no idea this industry even existed.  It was completely new to me! A company would pay another company to find talent for their organization?  When I was initially contacted about this exciting…

Spontaneous Buying – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Week

It’s a hot summer day with no perceptible breeze. Lying across the way is a haphazard pile of debris, having been blown into what almost looks like a small pyramid. A spotlight of sun, the size of a small flashlight beam, suddenly appears on the pile, having been channeled by a pane of window glass. Suddenly, a burst of flame erupts as the wood, grasses, and other assorted…
