Recruiting Parallels: Life of a NBA GM

Every year one of my favorite sports days of the year is the NBA Draft mostly because I like to think like I’m a GM (usually of the Celtics).  I’ve seen the players play in college, read the scouting reports, listen to the trade rumors and know enough to make it a fun exercise in critical thinking.  And while the NBA Draft is it’s own unique event,  it is not all that much different from what recruitment…

I can't help everyone - I'm sorry!


Some days this job is tougher than others.  Some tough days are pain in the ass hiring managers, candidates that do ws, or just overwhelming volumes of works.  But the toughest days for me are the candidates that are desperate.  Not just a little, but a lot.

Candidates Should Mirror Athletes.

As my recruitment career continues and the list of candidates I deal with increases, it becomes very apparent that there is a small minority that truly stand out above the rest, the elite. There is a very definite quality they have and that is shown in the extra level of effort in all that they do.

With Euro 2012 in full flight (never mind England, we'll get…

Stories of a jobseeker vol. 3: Learn something

There's not much positive you can take from a job search, especially one that goes on for an extended period of time. It's often an endless roller coaster ride of emotions and highs and lows. More often than not, the lows linger if you let them. Your time is most often spent searching for and applying to multiple jobs per day, following up on jobs you've previously applied…

Building Trust Between Recruiting and Sales

When They Just Can't Get Along

When sales executives promise clients the world, and recruiters can't deliver, you get a mixture of bad blood and toxic rivalry:

"I no longer trust the sales person to bring in a qualified and fillable job requisition. I won't recruit on ANY of this sale's persons requisitions."

Sound familiar?

Aah love. Is there anywhere more romantic than the South? A mint julep or sweet tea, the warm glow of the lazy afternoon sun. Southern belles and chivalrous gentlemen.  I'm not talking about your soulmate, I'm talking about…

Working Successfully with Recruitment Consultants – Candidate Guide

We recently asked for votes from our readers and followers in our May Poll (http://ellicottlong.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/opinion-poll-may-2012/) rating their experiences working with recruiters. The response was generally pretty negative with low satisfaction levels.

Perhaps like me you've been following the saga about Recruiting Animal's Twitter account @animal being hacked. His name was stolen and taken over by some random coder/programmer named "Mikey"

They decided to revolunitize the industry, go into career consulting and placement, get paid by candidates then offer up those candidates to companies at a much reduced rate...like…
