A Message To Hiring Managers

As a recruiter, we are out there on the front lines, rolling up our sleeves to source, screen and slate the top talent on the market. We strive to do whatever it takes (ethically) to find that always elusive blue diamond, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all odds, turn them into interested, engaged applicants.

A Setback = A Comeback

When you are carrying a building on your back and you can feel your legs ready to give out, you start thinking that your life is down the tubes (which it is not) and that you are a failure (which is absolutely not true.)

A setback is a life situation that is not working out right now or has already happened. But it’s really important to understand the difference between a life situation and who you really are.

A great piece of advice was given to me many years ago: “Remember who you are.” That is pretty powerful if you can allow yourself to truly believe it.

Why Online Research is Necessary before Making Your Hiring Decision

The ability to research social media is a huge asset to employers before an interview. That is why it is extremely important that all of us should think long and hard before posting anything on the internet. Good, bad or indifferent.

In doing online research about an applicant, a simple visit to Google can open up a treasure trove of information on someone that would never appear on a resume. Visit LinkedIn and in most cases you can actually see a picture of the applicant.

Lessons from Taylor Swift: How to Maximize Your Recruiting Efforts

Previously, hiring was easier because companies simply needed to post the job and then sit back and wait for the right employees to show up on their doorstep. But, the market is more competitive now, and a good portion of your candidates may not have the skill set that is needed for the job. Instead of sifting through the low-qualified candidates, a better option is to reach out to people who would be an ideal fit for your company.
