timsackett.com

So, here’s the deal. Timmy gets his big break and gets the interview he’s always wanted. Goes in. Kills it. You know how Timmy does! The interviewer is doing interviewer things and drops the question, “So, Timmy, do you have any questions for me?” Do “I” have questions for you!?! Heck, yes! I’ve been preparing […]

The One Thing Most TA Leaders Miss When Creating Real Change
timsackett.com

Our Hiring Managers just won’t give us feedback, or give us interview times. My recruiters just won’t use our ATS or our CRM. I can’t get our executives to understand our brand isn’t what they think it is. I had an F500 TA leader tell me last week that their biggest issue was not finding […]

timsackett.com

Don’t buy into the hype! “Oh, just do what you love!” That’s not being an adult, that’s being a moron! Just do what makes you happy! No, that’s what a child does. “Tim, we just want to hire some ‘adults’!” I hear this statement from a lot of CEOs I talk with currently! That means […]
