Talent is the lifeblood of innovation. A company that truly believes talent makes the difference will thrive even in the harshest of
economies. Ask Cisco. Ask HP. Better yet, ask Apple.
When the dotcom bubble burst at the end of 2000, Apple took advantage of the rarest of opportunities and went on a hiring spree. While
companies were folding, downsizing, and freezing hiring tickets, Apple…

While most candidates are very appreciative to receiving feedback to jobs they apply to, it seems there is always an exception. I have a recent HR position where I was contacted on LinkedIn of why they were rejected for a job they applied to. The applicant wondered my they were 'summarily rejected' and wanted to know if there were other requirements not posted. While I wanted to respond and give a good further reason to help with branding and being responsive to applicants, the tone in the…Continue

I have been up for hrs thinking about where to find my next candidate. It did not take long but the most important tool I have is the phone. I hear recruiters ask all the time what is the best tool for this.

However, a new generation of office professionals have been unleashed into the workforce general population. With an ideal job spanning the likes of “video game tester”, “dotcom billionaire”, or “Facebook inventor”, dressing for the job you want no longer includes a suit and tie, or even slacks for that matter.
I had a candidate for an…Continue

I have heard this saying a few times now, and most recently in a health book I have been reading. What's the difference? It finally hit home. We are all in a constant dance between being the student and teacher depending on the relationships we hold.…Continue

As a seasoned Recruiter I have been extremely frustrated with how to practically apply the use of “Social Media” to my full desk environment. The more times I posted positions to my LinkedIn signature, groups, et cetera the more silence I seem to have been creating. As my frustration reached a…Continue
