Make Use of your Talent Network as a new recruiting channel!

First things first!  Let’s define what a Talent Network is.  Here’s my definition:

A Talent Network is the concept of building a collection of candidates that fit job positions that you are consistently hiring for.  These candidates can be housed in a database or Recruiting CRM and will act as a new recruiting channel for you to utilize as new job requisitions open…

Google’s CEO change and the 70-20-10 rule for recruiting!

One of the biggest news stories last week was Google’s announcement that CEO Eric Schmidt was stepping down and co-founder Larry Page was stepping in as CEO.  The news follows a few years of criticism of how Google was becoming more bureaucratic and less innovative into new technologies.

 

With Larry back as CEO, Google is looking to get back to their “Don’t Be Evil” days when employees…

How much is your time worth?

When making any decision in life, you need to process and interplay a variety of factors to determine between a variety of choices you have at your disposal.  When sifting through these choices you’ll see differences in money, production and overall enjoyment that a certain decision will bring.  But the key deciding factor is most always time.  Do you have enough time to do this choice or better yet is it worth your time to do (with the other choices that are available to…

Don't let good candidates go!

So you are hiring for a position.  You’ve interviewed 5-6 candidates in the final interview process and made an offer to the best candidate.  And the best part, they accepted.

 

So the recruitment marketing campaign is over and was a smashing success, right?  Yes and no.

 

You recruited and hired the candidate you wanted (which is a success in itself), however, the question is what happened to the other 4-5…

Recruiting CRM - A Buyer's Guide

Being on the technology side, I know how hard it is to talk to differentiate from one solution to the next when it comes to recruitment marketing technology.  When purchasing a Recruiting CRM, it’s that much harder as you not only have vendors with Traditional Sales Based CRM’s but also companies that focus solely on CRM’s for recruiting.

When deciding between solutions, take a moment to evaluate your current situation.  Ask your team why you need a CRM and what problems you hope to…

What Filters do you have in your Recruiting Process?

One statement I've heard a lot from recruiters is that they "receive too many resumes" and are so inundated with candidates that it just bogs their whole recruiting process down.  This is a problem but a good one to have (too many candidates is much better than too few).

 

But with any problem, the question is how can we solve it.  How can you create steps in your recruiting process to easily filter and pare down the candidates you receive into a nice neat pile of qualified…

What truly motivates your ideal candidate?

I think that we can all agree that the deepest motivation of a job seeker is to just get a job with a salary that comes with it.  But I think that we’d be amiss if we didn’t take a deeper look into the other motivations that job seekers have when choosing (because the best candidates choose) a position.

 

Most importantly, to be effective in bringing in the right top talent, you need to know what your target candidates motivations are for choosing an company to work for.  To do…

Don't let Sunk Costs factor into your Recruiting decisions!

It’s now 2011 and with the new year you also get a clean slate.  It’s time to start planning for 2011 and making decisions that will help shape your year.  When starting to make these decisions, however, it is important to leave 2010 and past decisions behind.  Take stock in the situation that currently exists in your recruitment marketing strategy and make decisions based on the present day.

 

One of the biggest problems I…
