Professional Pet Peeve #1

Declining an Outlook meeting invite without looking at the date. Sorry, I can't make this meeting tomorrow because blah blah blah reason...even though the meeting invite states the meeting isn't until October. READ THE DAMN DATE PEOPLE! If people would slow down for 5 minutes and read instead of being Mr./Ms. Johnny/Janie On-The-Spot, Fastest Mouse-Clicker West of the Mississippi, Ms. Cleo of Outlook Invitations, I wouldn't have to write this. But no, it must be a race to see who can respond…

That's a big word Dave!

Folksonomy. AKA collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, or social tagging. What a great way to introduce this abstract concept! Dave Copps had just a wonderful talk at SourceCon about real nature of information on the web and how it relates social networking. Web 3.0. This is very much along the line of "Everything is Miscellaneous" by David Weinberger ISBN 0-8050-8043-0.

I also noticed that Dave uses a Mac.…

We're always looking for ways to demonstrate the positive power of social media. And this time we found it on BlogCatalog members have designated Sept. 27 as Blog Against Abuse.

While the topic is wide open, we were really taken by the idea. Enough so that I e-mailed the Antony Berkman, president of BlogCatalog, to see if we could go beyond our usual support of his social… Continue

Youth not always an advantage

Most of us who have been around understand (and sometimes long for) the advantages of youth (especially as our society is obsessed with youth), but when it comes to career changes sometimes a little experience goes a long way.

Obviously my job as a recruiter is to educate and inform a candidate about the interview process and assist them in working through details about a job and anything impacted by a change in jobs. Of course working with candidates who have been…

Re-Recruiting your Current Employees

Is re-recruiting your current employee’s part of your employee retention strategy? If not, it should be, according to Michael Jalbert, president of Management Recruiters International.

“Employers should be applying the strategies and tools of external recruiting to their current employees.”

Loyalty is a good trait to have but it is unrealistic to think that your employees will be loyal in such a…

Resume Typos & English as a Second Language

When I was just getting started in the Recruiting business, a very

successful recruiter told me that one of his red flags was a

typographical or grammatical error in a resume. His point was that a

resume is the most important document a person uses to "sell" his/her

skills, and he/she should make darn sure that there are no errors.

My mentor told me that a lack of… Continue

Are Recruiting Fees Going Down?

I remember about 2 years ago I had my first conversation with Harry Joiner. Since then we have always enjoyed our weekly calls about domain names and recruiting. This week we each bought a new one but that is another post.

Getting back to our first conversation, Harry told me that he was convinced that agency fees were going to go down because he could not see how… Continue

Bad candidate clichés

In my twenty years of recruiting I’ve heard many clichés about the hiring process concerning candidates’ fears, but over that time most have either been dispelled or just fallen out of favor. However, two of the oldie but goodies were repeated to me the other day and I was simply amazed at the logic of the candidate.

The classics were “You have to get it (money) coming in or you’ll never get it” and “You can’t get a promotion for two years”. Now as we all know of…
