Why are you a Recruiter?

I’ve been in the Talent Management industry for 20 years and I have had the opportunity to work for a third-party agency, I’ve worked in corporate talent acquisition, I’ve been an HR Leader and for the last 10 years, I’ve been delivering Recruitment Process Outsourcing solutions.


All of us have stakeholder groups in this business, don’t we?  Hiring communities, HR partners, candidate talent pools, co-workers and the list goes on.  The one thing that has fueled me, in this…

Are you a fear-based recruiter?

I am a recovering fear based recruiter! My diagnosis came during a 2-hour presentation (six months ago) which was intended to shed light on the fact that the bulk of people’s decisions are made in or out of fear and I am now working to help others realize the pain that one lives with when they are in a constant state of fear too.

What differentiates your recruiting model?

Recruit or not to recruit...that is the question!

You own a small business or you help manage one. You feel responsible for the lives of the people who work for you and you think the market is going to pick up at some point in the next year. Maybe an “extra” sales person would help your business grow. Maybe you have the right sales people, but they are starting to get busy…

Is there a universal definition for "quality recruiting"?

Recruiting, as an industry, might be one of the largest “perception businesses” I have ever seen. Through my travels in the Recruitment Process Outsourcing industry I have been invited into a number of corporations (6 Fortune 500 clients, 8 privately held businesses & a handful of mid-sized companies) and regardless of the…

Budgets are do I effectively invest in Social Media & Job Boards?

I was retained by a client in December of 2009 to help build a “North American Talent Acquisition Strategy” and the subsequent “action plan” to implement what we designed. This organization is a mid-sized manufacturing organization and they have 900 employees with the intent of conducting 125 internal and/or external hires in 2010.
