Today I visited the dentist. I’d broken a filling and needed to have it replaced. I don’t like going to the dentist, I have no logical reason for this or any phobia, but I just don’t enjoy it.
But, today was different. Today my…Continue
There has been much talk about Cloud computing or SAAS recruitment software and the massive benefits for a recruitment agency to move to the Cloud. I find this quite amazing for two reasons, firstly most people I speak to aren’t really sure what this means and secondly the whole argument seems to have absolutely nothing to do with finding candidates, making placements or anything else to do with recruitment.
For the life of me I can not see what all the fuss is about, but…Continue

The weather is hot, the labor market is not. Employers around the country posted 3.0% fewer job openings in June as compared to May. So far this year, demand for workers is below the same period of last year. Labor demand depends on consumption which has not returned domestically nor internationally.

What is that weird waffle-looking thing at the beginning of that word and how does it help me? Well, that my friend, is called a hashtag (#) and it basically makes life easier for Twitter recruitment by helping you filter through categories of interests.
For instance, the following “tweet” includes “#recruiters” written…Continue

Makes a lot of sense and this should apply to Social Recruiting as well. People don't join groups or pages to be part of some Brand community that they love (CEO's love to believe that), its more for deals and discounts or in Recruiting (some real info about jobs and careers). There is going to be a small minority who love your brand but a vast majority have better things to do with their time...Interesting article…Continue
Most of your reading this will like dating but absolutely hate interviewing for a job, however, in many cases there both alike and essentially boil down to the same things. You’re both selling yourself and trying to work out whether you and the company will be a good match.
We will have good times, share laughs, grow together and learn from each other? OR on the other hand will I end up broken-hearted, consoling myself with a night in of chocolate, tissues and…Continue

Have you often been told by recruitment consultants that they are 'headhunting' for a particular role? In fact on Linkedin you will find that about 1 out of 2 recruiters will mention Headhunting on their profile... as a skill or something that they regularly do
The free online dictionary says:

Herein lies the problem – you most likely don’t have the time, energy, or even the interest to change or improve every aspect of your work and life. Nor should you. Better does not always…Continue
