Reports of the death of the recruiter are greatly exaggerated

I have been a recruiter for almost 20 years, the bulk of which has been on the external agency side. I have worked for agencies of all shapes and sizes. The big firm churn and burn, let's bring in 20 new recruiters and hopefully 2 will make it at least 6 months, style. The small 5 person shop run by the big producer who assumed he would, of course, be a strong manager and yet his firm has 100% turnover every year because he isn't, in fact, a good manager. I'm sure most of…

How to prepare for your first interview in a new market

A career change at any stage in life can be an intimidating prospect. Interviewing in a new market requires more effort and thought than moving on to a new role in the same sector. However, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to start with a blank slate – with some careful preparation you’ll find you have plenty to offer, even if you don’t have direct industry experience.

Identify and focus on transferrable skills 

So many skills are transferrable from one industry…

Cold Calls

I have stayed on the sidelines and read a lot of articles, talked with people in my industry and other sales verticals, and just plain have taken stock on how I get new accounts. The death of the “Cold Call” is very pre-mature. I can’t count the articles on line and that come to my desktop stating I’m wasting my time “cold calling” or “cold prospecting” for new…

You Live In Canada? You Need A Canadian Web Hosting Company

One of the most common mistakes that people make is the fact that, when the time comes for them to choose a web hosting company they will check out companies in general without thinking ahead.

Belief and change the world

There are only 2 things that separate the “blissful” from the “stressed”…….. The blissful BELIEVE (ideally in themselves but some of them believe in external forces also) and this leads them to focus (on a goal).

Are You Enabling Bad Behavior From Hiring Managers?

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures. That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree.
