The Top 4 Recruiter Lies We Tell Candidates!

The world quickly turned from a candidate-driven market to a company driven market, meaning for the first time in about a decade Recruiters will have the power. Now, as a candidate, you might have always felt that recruiters had the power, but you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen a recruiter in full “I’ve got the power” mode! I was thinking about this and…

How do you tell an employee they need “development”?

I’ve been doing a video series over at Saba Software called Talent Talks for the last year or so.

To Tell or Not To Tell…I Spy a TYPO in Your Resume.

Oh, that is a question. Tell the candidate? Don’t tell the candidate? I mean really, attention to detail is key in most jobs. Especially anything at the executive level, and certainly anything administrative. And good grief, if it’s accounting or finance, typos are verboten. But where is there slack?

HR CAREER ADVICE: Never Let Your Boss Tell You How Other People Feel About You Without Forcing These 2 Questions…

The Mistake: The HR pro in question thinks that since the C-Level reporting the feedback is supportive of her (it’s the other guy with the problem, right?), and she doesn’t have to challenge him in…

How to Tell If A Recruiter Can Be Your Next HR Manager

One strong opinion I have is this—if you aren’t recruiting as an HR Generalist, you’re an administrator, subject to being outsourced at your employer’s whim in the future.
