I Need Some Help...

Okay, this is more a call for help than a real blog post. If you’ve got input, please feel free to comment….

I am in the process of looking for an expert in C++ performance tuning. The person I need must understand high-volume, real-time transaction processing systems, and must have experience in tuning

those systems in the past. I’m not going to be using third parties for

this search, so I’m working to find the…

It might be nothing

As a read the article Workforce Planning: Preparing For the Next Economic Downturn by Dr. John Sullivan, a cold chill ran up my spine and a wave of memories came rushing back to me. My mind went back to when I was the Recruiting Supervisor for CTS Corporation in late 2000 and into 2001 and a few articles…

No Shows and Not Theres

About two months ago, we had two people not bother to show up for

interviews at our New York office. I had set up the interviews, the

interviewers had made an effort to be available, and I had confirmed

with the candidates two days earlier that the interviews were still

scheduled. And yet, they didn’t bother to show up, nor did the bother

to call and let us know that they would not be there.

Interesting article on Unemployment Claims:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The number of laid-off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in seven weeks, an unexpected sign of improvement for the jobs market.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that new applications for unemployment benefits totaled 311,000 last week, a drop of 9,000 from the previous week. It marked the lowest level for jobless claims since July 28.

The decline came as a… Continue

Unemployed in great position for Job search

No being unemployed is not an ideal position from a financial (or mental health) perspective, but looking at this situation as an IT recruiter they have the best situation in which to view all of their options and make the best decision for their career. So the question that begs to be asked is why do so few take advantage of their situation?

Here recently I’ve dealt with a few individuals who have been caught up in the proverbial downsizing/outsourcing at their…

Would you connect to a politician?

Pretty much all the politicians running for President have created MySpace and Facebook pages; Senator Obama also has a LinkedIn page and group. Senator Clinton and the others are expected to join Senator Obama on LinkedIn shortly.

One could assume that both Senators Obama’s and Clinton’s networks would tend to be heavily populated with minorities. With the…

Back From NYC

I have spent the last few days in NYC, and I have to say I was impressed. I felt safe and enjoyed the sites. Someone on the subway even did a good deed. Someone with me dropped her purse on the subway and did not see a credit card had fallen out under a chair. He picked it up and handed it back to her.

Also, there are some extemely talented people still available to recruit in this town!

I may have some news in the coming months, I went to Silver Cup Studio productions as well…

Rules for the unemployed job search

Yes, being unemployed creates a different set of rules in which you should manage your job search, and lets be clear it is the candidate who needs to take ownership and run the show. Steps include:

  • Assess and understand your skills in the market place and your flexibility (see blog: decision making 101)
  • Create your first draft of your resume
  • Call a…

linkedin candidates directed to your ATS

I've just seen that LinkedIn upgraded their job posting page and added a feature so that you can now have applicants apply online through your ATS. This is great for managing the candidate flow and most likely ensures that you at least respond to each and every candidate which once in a while may be hard if you get a lot of applicants through email. As well it gives you (or at least us here) an automated tracking of the source so we can see the effectiveness of posting jobs on LinkedIn (not too… Continue

My client refuses to pay me !!

I sent a resume with my candidates permission to a client that I have worked with for the past couple of years. I sent the resume on a (maybe there is a fit) without an actual job order from my client.. My client has given me permission to do this. My contact in HR replied " thanks for thinking of us. I am always willing to see good candidates. Nothing available now."

Anyway, I received an email a couple of day's later from the candidate asking me who I sent the resume to at the…
