The Importance of References

20 Jun

One of the most important, yet hotly debated, parts of the recruiting process is references. Many candidates tend to push back on providing them initially. This can be for several reasons. The most common objection I hear is “I don’t want them to be bothered.” Another is “once I get an interview I will provide […]

The Simple Follow Up

29 May

To this day, it still surprises me when I’m talking with potential candidates and they tell me stories of working with other firms where they were contacted for a job, told they’d be submitted, and then never heard from them again. How can you operate like that and build long-term valuable relationships? You cannot. Put […]

Spring has Sprung in the Job Market

29 Apr

With the cold weather finally behind us (I hope), it seems that there has been a surge not only in the temperature but also on the hiring front. With each passing day we are seeing more and more jobs flow in. I feel as if I barely have a minute to stop and grab a […]

Candidates…Help Me, Help You

25 Apr

Timing is everything in the recruiting industry. I see deals fall apart from both the client and candidate side all the time because one side dragged their feet. Sometimes the candidate is unresponsive for a few days after the interview process and the client decides to move forward with another candidate. Timing truly is paramount […]

“I’m Always Looking”

18 Apr

As recruiters, we hear quite often from our potential candidates that they are always looking for positions. Is it a good thing, or a bad thing? I guess there are two schools of thought when it comes to this. On one hand, it can be a good thing to keep an open mind. From the […]
