Best Jobs In America

I recently came across this interesting Infographic, originally part of an article in CNN’s Money Magazine online.  They use very good criteria to decide what are good jobs: Pay, long-term potential, resistance to recessionary influences, quality of life, etc., and they…

An Opportunity to Work!

 

I lease a barn and acreage a few miles outside of town where i keep six horses.  I hire high school and college kids to do all the dirty and heavy work that i can't or don't want to do.  Since the mid 90's i have had absolute hell (with two notable exceptions) finding kids who would, show up or even call if they couldn't get there, do more than the absolute minimum and that not well, couldn't walk from point A. to point B. without supervision or a map to get to point C or showed any…

Should Recruitment Agencies do more for less?

In the current Global economic climate do Recruitment Agencies need to share the burden of the economic recovery and do more for less? Some would say they need to wake up to the fact that customers are no longer prepared to pay or afford the exorbitant fees they have enjoyed for many years.

The Agony of Baseball Trades… and Recruiting

As a die-hard Mariners fan since 1994 and dedicated Yankees hater, this week’s trade of Ichiro Suzuki to the Yankees (the YANKEES) just about killed me. Ichiro has been a much loved member of the Bad News Bears Seattle Mariners for 12 seasons. As if his departure wasn’t painful enough, he actually played his first game as a Yankee at Safeco Field against the Mariners. It was so bad that when a hiring manager stopped by my desk shortly after I heard the news, he…

Project Management (PM) staffing style!!

So I posted this about 18 mnthes ago but I have been getting a lot of requets to repost it so here it is.

 

Project Management (PM) staffing style!!

One way I have found to be very successful as a staffing professional is to Treat every opening like a project and use the basic PM steps to ensure you do the job right. Step one is to do needs analysis. This is the same thing as your first meeting with your client to determine what they need, write the…

Business Development - The art and science of client acquisition and client management

Now that I've written a few blogs, I get contacted rather regularly about some of my more popular articles.  Its rewarding to think people actually read them and find that it helps them in some way.  That's cool!  Recently, a recruiter asked me if I had any blogs or tips on business development.  I promptly answered no but thanks.  This is an important topic and it certainly should be discussed.  So lets discuss some meat and potatoes of our business.  How do we land our customers?  How do…

Putting It All in Perspective

By Jennifer Brownell, Managing Director, Q4B

I spent the first two weeks of July on a road trip with my two daughters and some close friends traveling back to Michigan, where I grew up. We spent some time with family, friends and visited Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, OH, the home of the greatest roller coasters in the world.

The trip was fun and exciting and I know that it created lasting memories that my daughters will have forever. I was also able to keep up with…

Recruiting Vegas-Style: Metrics, Opportunities, and Determination

I am a big fan of METRICS. Year after year, they are the best way to gauge your performance & effort, and the ROI accompanying your output. Some recruiters drill down to "dollars per dial" (CASH-IN / CALLS) to measure how they are doing compared to years past.

That being said, the recruitment industry provides all of us with a tremendous…

Could "Obamacare" Increase the Demand for Contractors?

Like it or not, it looks like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), otherwise known as "Obamacare," is here to stay. Even if the upcoming election is a Republican landslide, experts say it is unlikely that the healthcare reform will be completely repealed.

One of the upcoming provisions that is worrying employers the most is the employer mandate. Under this provision, employers with 50 or more full-time employees will be required to provide…

How to avoid a Middle Management career rut

 

Earlier in the year I wrote about the lost generation of middle managers in retail whom face limited progression opportunities as a result of the recession. Since that article the redundancies have continued to flow thick and fast with all sorts of rumours about which retailer is going to collapse next. One might think that with all the doom and gloom in the market that the opportunities to develop your career are few and far between. However…

What are the top 5 things job seekers do that annoy you?

I'm putting together some presentation material and would love to get YOUR LIST, as a recruiter, or the top things candidates to that annoy you.  You can give me three, or ten... I'm going to try and compile a good list of 5 (or 10) common things.

Note that my website, JibberJobber.com, is used by job seekers to track and organize their job search. I've read a number of times (here and in other places) that recruiters are highly annoyed when job seekers aren't organized, to…
