Social Recruitment Is Losing Its Way

Thanks to everyone who attended the RicePowWow last night, it was a great evening.  The talk from Jacqui Wall from Umbrella on building resilience in recruitment is certainly coming in handy with the somewhat fragile nature of me and my team this morning. One comment made last night, out of the…

Applying Your Recruitment Superpowers To Real Life

Every time I browse through Netflix nowadays there seems to be another film or TV series about seemingly normal people discovering they have hitherto undiscovered superpowers.  Things like The OA, Daredevil and Sense8, and doubtless countless more all tap into the boring drudgery of many people's modern lives and briefly light…

This week's Whiteboard ramblings are brought to you by Sean Walters...   Speaking with an Internal Recruiter friend of mine the other day, he explained with an excitement usually reserved for craft beer, how he has just actually recruited someone via Facebook.

Ten Tips to Survive Your Recruitment Christmas Party

Silly season is well and truly upon us and today, being the first Friday in December, will doubtless herald the launching of several Christmas work functions to come.  Recruiters can often be partial to throwing the odd alcohol-fueled shindig and, being the excitable larakins many of us are, these occasions can…

How to Buy Friends and Influence People

Recruiting recruiters can be a tricky assignment at the best of times.  Like many sales people, recruiters are usually very good at presenting themselves in a positive light, finding smart ways to accentuate their virtues whilst glossing over their shortcomings.  This can make assessing the skills and abilities of a recruiter…
