#HireAVeteran

Today is a day that we honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. I'm sure you can think of a few people off the top of your head that you should (if you haven't already) send a quick note to, thanking them for their service. If my grandfather were still here today, I would have called him to thank him, but also to hear some of his great stories. Burt served in the Navy as an electrician from 1951-1955. Back when [somehow] it was possible to pay someone to pass your swimming test. Yes, you read that right. He... Read More

Sourcing = Trick or Treating

When you were younger, likely you joined the rest of the neighborhood kids by trick-or-treating on Halloween. Once you got a bit older, you knew which houses had the best candy, and which ones handed out FULL-SIZED CANDY BARS , and then those that handed out toothbrushes in lieu of candy. However, in all my memories of trick-or-treating, I still went to every housebecause, even though I knew that certain houses were known to hand out toothbrushes, I loved looking at the great mixture that I had accumulated at the end of the night. ...

Boost Your Passive Recruiting Game

Are you an order-filler, or are you a recruiter ? Sometimes even if your title says "recruiter," you don't have time to do what you know you should be doing: finding the best people for the job and getting them to join the company. Depending on your company, you may be getting some good people in your applicant pool, but they might not be the best people for the job. This is where passive recruiting should come into play. "Who has time for passive recruiting?" you're thinking... "I'm just trying to keep up with these open requisitions... Read More

Happy 1st Day of Air Conditioning Wars!

What's your ideal temperature for working ? I bet your ideal is different from your co-worker's ideal. "The majority of research has shown an optimal office temperature between 70 and 73 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 23 degrees Celsius) provides the best air temperature for maximum office worker productivity.

Continuous Recruitment is for Smart Recruiters

Are you a busy recruiter? Of course you are. All recruiters are busy! If you're thinking, "why would I be busy when I've filled all of my open requisitions?" it might be time to examine your processes. Do you have one (or two, or three) job(s) that take a long time to fill, or are really difficult to find candidates? Maybe it's time to build out a continuous recruitment plan. In a Career Builder Study of more than 2,600 hiring managers nationwide, it was shown that: 72% of U.S. employers that actively market to candidates say... Read More

I realize Mother's Day isn't until Sunday, May 11th, but I wanted to make sure that you had plenty of time to plan something extra special for a special mother in your life. By now you've probably seen this viral video from Cardstore.com on the World's Toughest Job : I suppose we should have prefaced that by saying, "If you haven't seen this, be prepared to cry a little bit." Everyone knows a wonderful  Boo-Boo Fixer, Fort Engineer, or Household CFO . These are, in fact, some of the world's toughest jobs, and are even... Read More
