Stories make the world go round. It’s stories that bring us back to your favorite TV show, stories that make you buy a product and ultimately stories that make a candidate want to work for a company. The key with stories is making sure to craft and lead with your best ones (preferably as early as possible in your recruiting process.)
That is not to say you can’t have multiple stories that provide value to your recruiting organization. It’s just that you need to prioritize…Continue

Can you believe it is almost July? As many of you get ready to kick-off your Fourth of July weekend celebration, I’m sure HR will be far from your mind. But as with most jobs, the workload will only increase with every day off. How do you handle work that piles up?
In the HR industry,…

Great post from the business Insider
The question I have: Who comes up with these type of questions? Is there a standard psychological/intelligence profiling procedure where these types of questions are created from or does the enterprise hire an external consultant to create a reaction based query in order to satisfy C-suite that HR is profoundly interested in the intelligence capability of the candidate?

There was a question posted in the LinkedIn Q&A Staffing and Recruiting section that I’ve been wanting to comment on. The question is: What is your least favorite interview question to ask or answer? The question gathered 54 answers, from both recruiters and job seekers. I’m fascinated by the answers. I find that both sides, recruiters and job seekers, are…Continue

When I first stepped (or more accurately fell) into recruitment 10 years ago, the agency that employed me said they were impressed with my sales background and that is why they hired me. I thought that was odd because recruitment is all about interviewing, matching candidates to clients and helping people find a job...isn't it?
I went on their induction course and it was full of people similar to me with no recruitment experience that had worked in telesales or had…Continue

Hello RBC –
I wanted to just take a quick moment to offer a hello to everyone. It has been quite hectic since last week as you can all imagine, but I really wanted to express my sincere appreciation for all the kind words and feedback both Noel and I received. It means a great deal to us and illustrates the true value of the RBC, which is the community.
I wanted to also take a moment to thank Jason. His time and insights since the beginning of this process have been…Continue

If you have plans to be a great recruiter, please, remember this and never forget it.
Filling a job does not start with finding good candidates for a particular job order. It starts with the quality with which you take the job order in the first place. It does not matter if you take the brief face to face (and you should, if at all possible), or over the phone. Filling the order starts with how well you qualify that order.
You have to make sure, at the very…Continue
Initial thoughts from a Corporate Recruiter on Monster’s new product announcement:
“There’s something happening here, what it is ain’t exactly clear”
My Tweet stream was inundated on Saturday evening by an onslaught of messages heralding the new job seeker application developed by Monster on the Facebook platform, “BeKnown”. Because I follow several Monster Marketing folks, this wasn’t much of a surprise. The surprise was the “canned” messages being…Continue
BeKnown is good news! There are lots of posts out there with facts and screen shots, so I skip that.
Here some initial thoughts.
1) It’s fantastic to see potential competition to LinkedIn; Moster has been one of the few big players capable of that. LinkedIn’s quality has been hurt by not having…
One of the MOST stressful parts of looking for a new job is the interview!
