Rambling, disconnected thoughts from a recruiter on vacation...

Vacation ramblings.......

As many of you know, I’m on vacation this week.  I didn’t want to write a full post, did that already for the Google Students site.  BUT, I did want to share a few thoughts.  This vacation has been awesome and has really helped me clear out the old brain....I’ll be back next week full recharged.  With that, here are a few rambling, disconnected thoughts from a recruiter on vacation:
As the economy continues to sputter, I worry we’ve got tough times ahead...again....hold on tight
Hire the best.  Don’t compromise or apologize for insisting on the best person.

Networking is an absolute must, if you aren’t networking you are falling behind.

Diversity isn’t just a catch phrase or social mission....it’s a competitive advantage.

Changing jobs is a life decision for for people, we as recruiters, hiring managers and peers need to keep this in mind.  This is serious stuff.

Why do you leave vacation on the table?  Take it all and don’t burn out.

Hire for the work, not the “role” you want to fill.

The only way to increase diversity in your workplace, is the build a bigger pipeline of candidates...and hire the best.

Coffee is for closers (ahh, that never gets old)

Ok, that’s it this week....hope you’re all having as much fun as I am......and until next time, good luck.

Thanks for this Jeff! I really like the emphasis that people are putting on people instead of resume lately. I think that it is just so important to remember that people are more than their piece of paper :) Enjoy your vacation!
