When evaluating the success of your recruitment sourcing strategy, it’s important not to only focus on the final results in terms of time to hire and cost per hire but ultimately look at how you ultimately ended up with these results. In the end, you want to determine what strategies and sources contributed to your success and what ones were not worth your time. All so you can improve your strategy for…Continue

(Reposted from Make HR Happen 6/6/2012)
Quality of Hire as a metric receives a lot of attention. Theories abound about the importance of QoH and how to measure it. There are 998 different theories about QoH. That number (that I just made up) is about as real as most of the…Continue

I've been a recruiter for 12 years and still every day, I come across people who have no idea what I do for a living. They simply don't understand the concept of a recruiter. As if that isn't enough, there is tons of misinformation out there about who we are and how we earn a living. I hope this clarifies it for the general public. To me, this is a PSA. :)
#1 - Giving someone the title, makes it so.
Just because you call your Honda a…Continue

Once upon a time, before I knew anything about the recruiting industry, I found myself laid-off and looking for work. And in the midst of that…Continue

LinkedIn is one such communication channel that facilitates a robust and authentic pool of talent.

The fee agreement should be simple shouldn't it? I mean it should be as simple as, A agrees to do this for B and B agrees to pay X to A for the service rendered PERIOD.
Unfortunately, life isn't that simple but it's not terribly complex either. There are only a finite amount of things can actually happen to potentially derail an otherwise successful placement. So lets discuss what a good fee agreement, in my opinion should be made of, the DNA, if you…Continue
I’ve been writing a lot on about the candidate experience over the past several weeks and one question I’ve been getting a good deal is “where should I start?” I tend to throw out a lot of things you can do to improve about the candidate experience and realize that it would be helpful to focus on a few that I think are some of the most important.
And while I think…Continue
Theyre back! Counter offers have made a recovery along with the demand for talent. Always a possibility, they are now a probability when a quality/qualified employees gets a new job offer.
Im not going to re-hash all the reasons not to take a counter offer. We've all heard/read them a thousand times through out our careers. I've certainly counseled on the dangers, etc. with practically every candidate (and client) I've ever…Continue
I recently had the privilege of hosting #HFChat – the HireFriday Tweet-fest organized by @HRMargo and @CyndyTrivella. HireFriday is all about helping job seekers find work. Recruiters, HR professionals, and the occasional job board doctor pose and answer common questions about the job hunt. It’s a wonderful event for all involved.
My subject – surprisingly enough! – was “Making job boards work for you”. The conversation ranged from the basics (setting up job alerts, using job boards…Continue

If you are in the recruiting Industry and someone asked you what the role of a headhunter was, how would you explain it?
Ask anyone at random what a headhunter was, and they’ll probably say something like “aren’t they the ones who steal people?
Ask highly trained executives, and they will say something like “aren’t they the pushy types that call you out of the blue trying to get you to leave your job for some other job they’re pushing-so they can make a killing?
Like most tech-savvy Canadians, I've been following the ongoing saga of RIM. The difference is that Martyn Bassett Associates has a bit of history with the company - we placed several candidates there back in the early days - and have a vested interest in the Waterloo tech talent-pool. With that in mind, the news that RIM is going to trim at least 2000 positions got me…Continue
