Video interviewing does more for your company than reducing costs. While it is a great alternative to traditional interviewing, it doesn’t sacrifice any of the qualities of the face-to-face experience. Rather, it transitions it to eye-to-eye. The camera focuses on a candidate’s (and the interviewer’s) face and gives insight into whether there is interest in the position. With… Continue

My good friend, @Rayanne invited me to be a guest on her new radio show HR Latte.
I said, "Rayanne, dear, I'm not so interesting so why don't you invite some people from the Animal Crew as well; you know a bunch of people who regularly call into the Recruiting Animal Show?"
She said "Okay" and, of course,… Continue

Kinesthetic learners make up over one-third of the population, so most people learn by doing. This is where games come in. Using games in the workplace combines all of the senses, not to mention all three learning types (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic). Gamification (game-if-ick-ation) can … Continue

A video job interview in recruiting creates manageable content, although very few ATS or HRMS systems allow video storage. The benefit of being able to edit, store, and convert to the appropriate information format for evaluating candidates or future consideration of a new opening.
The three types of … Continue

Google Glass's revolutionary technology has created a lot of buzz from supporters and opponents of the device. "Explorers," a term used for Glass users, tout its convenience, while opponents highlight its invasion of privacy and its impracticality. No matter what side of the fence your opinions are on, Google Glass is now emerging in job ads.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen! It's Tool Time! That is, tools for your web browser and tools to help automate your sourcing life.
Last week at a conference, I was talking to a like-minded sourcing guru/technophile. You know him by his real name: Dean Da Costa. As we talked about sourcing tools, add-ons, extensions, and whatnot, we talked about blocking domains from search results on Google.
Now for years I have used a Greasemonkey (or Tampermonkey… Continue

This read might help if you’re a Recruiter or has to do anything relating to Recruitment but it’s easier to digest for sure. The HR software that is usually used to figure out Recruitment tasks is Applicant Tracking System (ATS). We’re here to discuss affects of ATS on recruitment business and how we can enhance our approach while tracking applicants in a better way.
Irrespective of your business whether you own a… Continue

After some recent scheduling inconsistencies causing a few extra absences from the gym, I was pumped to get my sweat on today. My energy level was revved up from the brief break, so I was eager to take advantage of the situation to get back in the groove.
My workout routine started out strong and I was looking forward to making my 24Hour Fitness check-in count.… Continue

If you know me, not that it matters, you would know that I have never been a fan of conferences. None. I saw zero add other than draining my customers or my bank account. There was little that was innovative or interesting to me. I would go more in depth of why I started going to conferences but that is for another post I guess. This post is about #talent42, which… Continue

Remember growing up playing a little backyard football with your neighbors? Two people were selected to pick teams. You always knew the person who was going to be selected first and typically the person who would be selected last. The most athletic, most capable individuals were picked first. I know I always wanted the biggest and strongest people on my team. The poor guy… Continue

You run your own small business and are looking to recruit some additional staff.
When interviewing, imagine these scenarios: one woman is noticeably pregnant and another is not currently pregnant, but openly speaks on her desire to start a family in the near future. Both women are extremely qualified, friendly and fully capable of handling the job - big belly or… Continue

People thrive on stability and predictability. So when a recruiter suggests video interviewing as an alternative to the traditional, the hiring manager may panic. Unfortunately, many hiring managers aren’t aware of the reasons they should use video interviewing. The cost-effective method of deepening the talent pool provides consistency and… Continue

Applicant tracking systems are great for HR professionals and recruiters. There are disputes about their effectiveness because they target keywords rather than candidate skill. Even though most candidates don’t like their experience when a company uses an ATS, it greatly helps recruiters minimize the size of the talent pool without wasting precious time…

Peter Clayton recently posted "The Job Interview..." where he discussed the ubiquitous Candidate Experience. After a few decades of recruiting, I know that the CE is a by-product of both sides of the fence. The Good, the Bad, and the really freakin' Ugly.
Perhaps using humor is a better strategy for teaching the Do's and Don'ts of interviewing. Do any of… Continue

My “daughter” likes to preface her more profound statements with the saying “ I am just sayin…” and it seemed appropriate for this post to begin with her saying. Over the past year there has been much discussion in the social media realm about the future of HR.
Recently I have read and heard an ongoing discussion about the future of the human resource profession. On one side is the school of thought that says we need to go back to the days when we were called Personnel. Back to the… Continue

I sometimes think people are thinking far too hard and becoming much too confused about the whole recruitment process and how to attract applicants.
Job boards to me are the ideal and only place I would look for jobs. Why? Because it is so bloody simple. I register and set up some search terms so that when a job is posted that matches my criteria I get an email alert… Continue

Dear Cover Letter,
It has been great. We’ve had a lot of great years, a lot of great memories, reading you under those humming florescent lights, tucked away in my cubicle.
But I’m sorry. It is over. It just isn’t working out anymore.
It isn’t you. I swear. You’ve always been so polite, so chivalrous, so overtly formal. It is… Continue
