Making Businesses Better

Job Seekers typically see things from the perspective of their career, and that is understandable, but recruiting is not about careers. It’s about building great companies or making companies better. Great careers and great career moves are a by-product.

In a lot of cases we feed the misconception. “Find your ideal job at XYZ Company”. Everyone’s skills are needed somewhere. The key for a candidate is to find the place where their skills and abilities are needed to make an…

Competing Offers

Candidates are getting competing offers regularly these days.  That happens when you have a tight candidate market.  There aren’t enough good candidates out there to fill all of the needs for good hires.

While money isn’t the only factor that a candidate with competing offers will consider, it’s a big one.  The opportunity to do great work, challenge, culture, work environment, the mission of the business or division and how you are going about it…..all of these things matter.  Great…

The Interviewer's Shoes

All kinds of goofy things happen in interviews.  Crazy questions.  Bluster.  Fluffed up claims of accomplishments and skills……etc.

It’s a good idea to put yourself in the interviewer’s shoes.  Ask yourself what they want.  What the interviewer wants is to hire someone who will do the job they need to fill really well.  To make an impact on the company and to make the company better, more profitable.  If you can’t do that the interview is pointless.  If you can do that, you just need…

Hiring Great People

Originally posted in June of 2014.  

I saw a post the other day about how Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Warren Buffet among others have been quoted saying the most important thing to their success is hiring great people.

Sometimes recruiters get so wrapped up in recruiting that they lose sight of how important our work is. Nothing is more important to the success of a company.

Ghosting has become quite a thing throughout the recruiting world.  Going completely silent (non-responsive) when one decides to go in another direction, loses focus, or doesn’t know what to say at the moment is not confined to the dating world anymore.

There have been hiring managers that have done this for quite some time and now candidates are regularly ghosting as well.  Regardless of the situation, it’s a bad look.…

“Todd is truly a breath of fresh air in this industry. He takes a very open and honest approach when it comes to his business and in the recruiting industry there is not much more you can ask for. I can always trust what Todd tells me and I know that he always has his clients, the candidates and the recruiters best interests in mind during all stages of the process. Todd’s ability to handle the needs of both his client and the candidate in a manner that results in a great experience for all is one of the many factors that set him apart. I am excited to grow our working relationship and look forward to future opportunities with Todd and his company. Todd’s professionalism, dedication to the job at hand and trustworthiness easily allow me to strongly recommend him to any client or business partner. Regardless of the role or opportunity presented to work with him I am certain Todd will make an excellent partner and will leave you with only the best of impressions.” December 14, 2009

“I have worked with Todd for over 3 years and am amazed at his reach nationally to find the best candidates. I have hired him to help one of my clients to find engineers, something in short supply in Southern California. He always comes up with the best candidates, even better than the local recruiters I have worked with. Todd is punctual and very responsive when contacted and stays in touch all the time throughout the process. He is a beacon of light in an industry full of recruiters who are lazy. I highly recommend Todd if you need a recruiter who is very effective and has a great network. He really works for his fees. Dan Curtin” November 10, 2008

“We have been working with Todd Kmiec since the beginning of this year (2008). We have found that Todd is very professional, and that he has a very strong knowledge of the way recruitng should be done. Todd knows his clients and understand what they are looking for in a candidate. He is very quick to respond to any questions and provides concise and clear feedback. When a candidate is in the interview phase Todd follows through so that all parties can be kept up to date and clear on the status. We have worked with Todd on several difficult to fill positions and have both enjoyed, and learned from the experience. We look forward to working with him on many more. November 7, 2008 Sally K.

“Todd surpasses all recruiters and is by far the most consistent and organized recruiter I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I have had a working business relationship with Todd since January '07 and have yet to see anything short of superior work ethics.

He's working round the clock to please his clients and does it all with a great attitude.

"Todd is one hard to come by and rare to find. Over the years I’ve known him through our daily recruiting operations, he has never failed me, not even ONCE. He is 200% dedicated and expert at what he does. His follows his miraculous system with precision, insight, determination and perfection. He is one I’ve known with the most business common sense, openness and fairness. You can expect a lot from him but still not getting disappointed. He is truly one of a million, the best partner I’ve had. He sets the perfect example of what a model business partner should be. I can never say enough of how proud I am in finding him. I have no doubt that our partnership will be a lifelong one. I highly recommend Todd to anyone interested in partnering with him for any business activity." May 10, 2009

I don't always have a candidate for your open job orders but always conduct a

search in my files and "only" send if appropriate.  Would appreciate remaining on

your open job listing distribution.  Frank Gregg,. GREGG & Associates

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits. We have a lot of open job orders and offer a 50/50 fee split. Would you be open to discussing ways we could collaborate from time to time?
