"Dec has been our biggest month of the year for 12 straight years and Dec 2010 our largest cash-in month ever.  And this week is crazy; partner (and brother) had a new baby girl this AM (Bea Snyder, mom Laura) so I'm an uncle again, plus…"

No One Is Going To Read This

It never fails, December is one of the busiest months for me and has been throughout my career. Since my first job in recruiting I have heard it every year from hiring managers, clients, candidates and co-workers. No one hires in December, candidates stop looking, and December is the slowest month of the year. To those claims I…See More

"All I can say is ... welcome to perm recruiting. Nothing has changed except the medium. The best recruiters always did this... they culled the soil of their industry turning up the people in it, they cultivated relationships by always talking,…"

"Maureen, I like your analogy. It has almost tamed the garden maybe made it more like a national park where trails exist but you can still go off on your own and rough it. Jerry, I tried to work a line in my post about weeds but couldn't make…"

"I think that just because "There are hundreds, maybe a thousand posts on what a recruiter should do in the social network space - listen, engage, ask questions then approach." does not mean the actual art of aggressively finding the right…"

Maureen Sharib commented on Mark Sullivan's blog post 'It's a Garden Not a Grocery Store'
"It just occurred to me that what we used to do as "sourcing" on the Internet can be likened to searching (and slashing) through a jungle. Social networks have tamed that jungle, somewhat, and present a tamed "garden" experience.…"

It's a Garden Not a Grocery Store

Over the last two weeks I have used this analogy when talking to recruiters within my company that recruiting via the social networks is more like a garden and not a grocery store. It seems to have connected with them and I know there are hundreds of other analogies out there describing "social recruiting" and this one just came out of my mouth during a conversation. My point is when a recruiter is using the social networks to find candidates and engage them either in conversation or to direct…See More

"Great article, Mark. After spending nealy 15 years working for somebody else, I opened up my own firm in January 2010. Since Jan., I've made 11 placements and I can't believe I didn't do this long ago. I guess it took a recession and…"

The Basics - What Are Yours?

Posted on April 22, 2010 at 11:21am 6 Comments

Basics – I use this word frequently when talking with my teams. It’s usually during a pep talk “…don’t forget the basics…” or when someone has made a mistake and to me it was a “basic mistake”. Basics – the core skills we use to do our craft. People will argue which basics are more important or what even the basics are for recruiters. Each member of my team has received their recruitment training in a different place, time and environment than me but when I hire a new recruiter I try to see…

How Do You Want To Be Treated?

Posted on March 30, 2010 at 4:40pm 2 Comments

Originally posted on www.letstalkrecruitng.wordpress.com



Recently I responded to a Twitter post and the ensuing replies reminded me that I wanted to write about this topic before now - how do you treat your candidates at the end of the process? Would you want to receive the same treatment if you were in a job search?



The above tweet refers to internal… Continue
