I’m still struck at how for the most part, we treat candidates like garbage. Historically in Talent Acquisition, we had this really weird power dynamic that took place. We believed we (TA) had jobs to give out or not give out, like prizes, so we would force candidates into our processes and make them jump through hoops. […]

Ever read that quote that floats around about Thomas Edison’s process of inventing the lightbulb? The one that goes something like “I didn’t fail 1,000 times, the light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” What an impactful statement about what it took to come up with one of the greatest inventions of all time. […]
I have a brain crush on Smashfly’s Tracey Parsons. She’s a great Recruitment Marketer who flat out gets what you and I should be doing to get candidates to find us! I only tell you this because Tracey shared something online this week that I had to share. I came on a LinkedIn post by […]
You’ve probably heard all the business-psycho babble around “if you work doing something you love to do, you’ll never work another day in your life!” Of, if you work at something that makes you happy you’ll always love your work. Blah, blah, blah, it sounds like all you really need is a Life Coach! I’m just […]
Today on the Weekly Dose I review the sourcing technology Hiretual (Hire-Tool). So, I’ve been hearing from my sourcing friends for about two years that Hiretual is awesome and I need to check them out. Hiretual is a modern sourcing technology platform that allows a Sourcer or Recruiter to quickly search for possible talent online from dozens of […]
Hiring the right people at the right time can make or break a business. Unfortunately, most businesses wait to hire until it’s almost too late. This makes it essential to bring new hires on quickly and efficiently. You don’t want to waste time with long, drawn out negotiations when you needed someone to start yesterday. […]
Have you been feeling like you don’t fit in recently? Like both sides might not be what you’re looking for? Like ‘these folks are crazy!”? Welcome to America! The Atlantic had a brilliant article recently where a study from Harvard says it’s not ‘you’, it’s actually ‘them’ – “On social media, the country seems to […]
As a human resources professional, I often witness recruiters struggle to find job candidates with the technical skills and experience their company needs. I also know that scores of military veterans have these skills but struggle to find work in the private sector because they are uncertain about the positions that are strong fits with […]

A recent article in The Atlantic brought up is seemingly troubling subject. Teens are voicing their opinion that being forced to speak up in classes is discriminatory: “in the past few years, students have started calling out in-class presentations as discriminatory to those with anxiety, demanding that teachers offer alternative options. This week, a tweet […]
I’ve noticed something when I go onto campus for career fairs. The TA Pros that are there representing your company, don’t really want to be there. They don’t really want to be talking to students. They find this beneath them in many aspects. That is if you’re over one year out of college! It seems […]
With “tons of ways” for candidates (and employees and everyone else) to go online “and talk crap about you all day, every day,” how do you combat that? You “clapback,” says Sarah Morgan.
Average recruiters say “No” for candidates a lot! It sounds like this: “You probably won’t be interested in this, but…” “I’m doubting this is for you, but…” “I’m guessing this position is below you, but…” Average recruiters give candidates an excuse to say No, even before we know if the candidate is interested or not!
