The Whiteboard’s Guide to the 2017 Election

Never talk about religion or politics, or so American dinner party guests would claim. With the election looming, and my desk fourteen thousand kilometres from Manhattan, it’d be remiss of The Whiteboard not to stick its oar into the murky depths on the 2017 Election. Refreshingly, it’s not the forgone…

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…

The Trolling Of Recruiters

The internet has given rise to many amazing things that have helped make the world a more connected place. But for all the positives it is undoubtedly balanced out by a lot of downsides too, not least of which is the platform it has afforded complete and utter idiots to…

Look At Me, I’m A Recruiter

We live in a vainglorious world.  Technology has brought us the phenomenon of selfies and social media provided the platform for us to share our pouting selves with all and sundry.  Even in recruitment we talk about how essential personal branding is to be a successful recruiter these days, whatever…

The Games People Play

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, and whether we like it or not, Pokémon GO is upon us. For those who haven't seen the swarms of smartphone-clutching zombies schlepping around a town near you, Pokémon GO uses your phone to create an augmented reality where "trainers" (that's you) can…

Wham! Bam! Thank You Spam

I received an interesting email this week. Although we work hard on “getting out there”, like a cold beer when your mouth feels like Ghandi’s jandal, it’s always refreshing to receive an enquiry from an as-yet-unheard-of new client. Especially when it’s a referral from a “business acquaintance”. Lacking the good…

What Has Become of Social Recruiting?

I'm sensing a groundswell of existential angst out there in the blogosphere.  My favourite blog, and one that very much inspired the style and approach of my own early forays into blogging almost 6 years ago, is Arseblog.  It may sound like a cross between a suppository and a sex…

Recruiters Putting the Social into Networking

The topic I had planned to blog about today has been put back a week.  So now I'm like a desperate press industry hack scrabbling around for inspiration with some portly, cigar-smoking, sociopathic editor breathing down my neck.  Except in this instance that editor is you my dear reader.  Damn you.…

Are LinkedIn and Facebook Merging?

Good morning Recruiters of New Zealand.  A quick and early one from me today as I'm off to Nelson with Sean for my 40th for some reflective beach walks and perhaps a little bit of sampling of the local refreshments. It's a welcome break.  My head's slightly frazzled from putting…
