Chadd Balbi, Master of The Role Play

Back on Dec. 18, 2013, muscleman, Chadd Balbi was the guest on THE RECRUITING ANIMAL SHOW. It was a good show. He seems like a good guy.

But here's something surprising. I like role-plays so I can see how someone would handle standard situations on the phone. But my audience doesn't. As…

Dave Fecak, IT Recruiter

We had a good show today featuring Dave Fecak, an IT recruiter in Philadelphia who has a peppy way of speaking that is easy to listen to.

Most of the discussion was about about Dave's flat fee. Jerry didn't like that idea. We should have him back to ask him other questions.…

Perri Gorman, Wall St Recruiter - Part 2

Harry Joiner, the Marketing Headhunter, was due to be the guest on the Recruiting Animal Show on November 20, 2013. However, Harry had to travel unexpectedly so I asked Perri Gorman, our last week's guest, to return and she did.

The show was spoiled initially by BlogTalkRadio's new online host call-in software. I did a five minute introduction to the show that was…

Mike Astringer Interview - Animal Show

We had a great show today on The Recruiting Animal Show. And I'm going to say it was because we had a guest who was willing to answer questions. Also, because we talked about recruiting which everyone understands and therefore everyone could chime in with something to say.

We did talk about alpha males as well but, really, that's a regular topic on the Recruiting…

Branding vs Recruiting

Back in 2011, Jodi Ordioni of Brandemix wrote an article for ERE claiming that Facebook was going to destroy Linkedin in 2013. That was an attention grabber (for shure) so…

Lisa Jones, Recruiting Technology and Social Media Consultant

There's a ridiculous rumor about me. I know who started it -- @ResumeStrategy (see here) -- but Amy Ala picked it up and hammered away at it during this week's After Show. Supposedly, I go too easy on the women guests. Really? I didn't think I went easy on this week's guest -- though I admit that I did make…

The King of the Cold Call

The show was a little sedate today. My good friend @ChrisRussell went to a meetup and saw a young guy named @GeorgesJanin speak about cold calling. George is a recruiter who teaches a course on cold calling so Chris referred him to me.

A few weeks ago I received a marketing email from I replied to say that I wasn't interested but that I would be happy to have them on my show if they wanted exposure. The CEO, Ziv Eliraz, told me that he would like to come on., I warned him that it might not be the best venue for new technology. His interest was not…

The Psychology of Cold Calling

image from I just published a short ebook on Amazon. It sells for $2.99.

It's called The Psychology of Job Hunting but it's really about the fear of cold calling and networking.

It's focus is self-image and boundary issues. That doesn't sound interesting but I tried to make it very colloquial and enjoyable to read.

How do you like my Big Data? Big Brother comes to Recruiting.

When Gerry Crispin was a boy hiring was so easy. There was lots of talent just lying all over the place.

All you had to do was put an ad in the paper and hire a secretary to open the resumes.

But, now, things are different.

Reed Kremer, Young IT Client Manager

The crowd loved this show and it was pretty good.

And without taking any glory away from the guest, Reed Kremer, I believe that the key factor was the great input from the Animal Crew.

I also had lots of…

Casey Kugler, Young Recruiter

@CaseyRecruitsDC is a nice young fellow. The crowd loved him. Especially the maternal and paternal types. They gave him a higher score than me. They said I wasn't prepared. Yeah, right. Oh, please.

I did make one serious error. Around the…
