Tick Tock, Tick Tock, the initial scanning of a resume!!!

Recently I read a blog, by a staffing professional with over 30 years of experience. In this blog he posted 9 things he uses to help quickly get through resumes in 10 seconds or so. Some of these criteria were; location, industry, function, level, recent experience, education, turnover, type of resume, and what he called obvious things, in this case spelling errors and the like. He had a very narrow and low tolerance for…

1. Create a two way SLA, that states how long the HM has to get back to you about candidates. Ensure there are ramifications should he not meet his end of the…

Once And For All, Let's Get Rid Of Quantity Versus Quality

I'd like to toss out the old "Quantity Versus Quality" argument altogether and develop something more meaningful and more fluid...

I call my prospective replacement for "Quantity Versus Quality" the "C.I.A. Concept" where "C.I.A." stands for:

  1. Confluence
  2. Influence

Recruiters and Falsehoods!!!

Some staffing professionals(SPs) seem to feel whatever it takes to land the candidate is ok. Now this is much more prevalent in the contract world then the corporate world, But it does happen in both. Things as simple as, we can pay you this much, when you know you cannot. Are statements that are made that are…

Fact, Fiction and Reputation!!!

Fact, Fiction and Reputation!!!


So what do you think happens when you are assigned for several years to groups that require you to be strong, hard charging, able to be fluid with the process, and take charge? Answer you get a reputation to match, and while this made you very successful in those groups, it will make it very hard in others and even make it hard to find other jobs within your company.
