Look Good on TV

Source: Wired

If you sell a startup or hit it big with your blog, you'll likely end up on TV. The Daily Show's Samantha Bee offers this advice for would-be talking heads:

1. Try not to sweat through your Members Only jacket. If you're prone to perspiring under pressure, wear something that won't show… Continue

A recruiter friend of mine is in Africa doing some charity work for OneMama.

So Siobhan has been an amazing friend, collegue and business partner of mine for close to 8 years now. A few years ago she got hooked on this idea of going to Uganda to help out in a birthing clinic. She quickly realised that the people in this village were lacking basic necessities for life let alone for giving birth. When she came back to San Francisco she put together a non-profit organization called OneMama with the intention of providing basic healthcare needs for mothers in the… Continue

Human Capital Strategies- Lead Development

From time to time I have had the opportunity to teach my client the power of ‘fishing’ vs. the one time benefit of handing them ‘fish.’ The power and extensibility of creating a repeatable process has many benefits which include having ownership of a passive pool of candidates, creating a branding strategy to build credibility in high potential candidate eyes and the maximum benefit of identifying true ‘A’ players. Contrasted with hiring one talented employee per requisition, and the benefits… Continue

Merry Christmas, Bob (It's Motivation Time, RBC-World!)

A buddy of mine writes articles for a site called T-Nation.com (the 'T' stands for testosterone, so they're shooting for a target market somewhat adjacent to RBC :P ) Anyway, he wrote an article titled, "Merry Christmas, Bob" a few years ago . . . an article that I go back to when I need a swift kick in the butt. It kinda reminds me of what being a true-to-form headhunter feels like - it sure aint for the faint of heart. Here she is:

"So, what are you doing for a living these days?"… Continue

New Corporate Recruiting Blog - Success Starts Here

Today, a vision has been realized.

A few years back, I attended my first ERE Expo in San Diego. It was there that I was first truly exposed to blogs, and their possibilities in the world of recruiting. I came home from that event in a frenzy, with a dozen to-do items that I felt we could address, including creating a corporate recruiting blog for my employer at the time (Gary Cluff can attest to this). I saw what Heather,… Continue

Compensate to Motivate

Channeling the energy of a sales team can be challenging. How you compensate them determines where they invest their time and the results you get.

When I speak to business executives, one of the challenges I often hear is that their sales team is not doing the things they feel are most critical to the success of the company. I then ask to see their compensation plan. After a thorough read, I share my impression of the message of the compensation plan and ask if this is… Continue

Yesterday I read a an amazing post from Doug Firebaugh who is a leading generic sales and marketing trainer in the Direct Selling industry. Forget mindset and begin to consider your connection. Here is an excerpt:

Many people have said that this business is about mindset.

(Audio version here)

Are recruiters salesmen? There are two schools of thought here. One says yes but there's a whole bunch of other guys who go around bragging that they're not into sales. I came across one of them last week on Fistful of Talent.com. His name is Jason Pankow and I want to take a look at how this little punk, a corporate recruiter, builds his case… Continue

Behavioral Interviewing For Engineers

Previously posted on blog.keenhire.com

In my conversations with recruiters specializing in placing Engineers they are adamant about the point that Engineers get hired for their credentials and not their behaviors. Interestingly enough their corporate counterparts disagree.

Given 50% of all Engineers will retire in the next 10-15 years, there is a mass concern among companies that operate with these people at their helm...They are… Continue

Have a Problem? Ask Everyone (And Pay Someone)

John Davis, a chemist in Bloomington, Ill., knows about concrete. For example, he knows that if you keep concrete vibrating it won’t set up before you can use it. It will still pour like a liquid.

Now he has applied that knowledge to a seemingly unrelated problem thousands of miles away. He figured out that devices that keep concrete vibrating can be adapted to keep oil… Continue
