Tim Sackett Hiring Managers, Recruiting, Talent Acquisition 0 Comments

In the third-party recruiting world, we like to talk all big and aggressive about “firing” clients. “Yeah, ABC Corp was a bunch of idiots to work with, they didn’t know what they really wanted, I fired them!” No, you didn’t, Timmy! Calm down! Okay, you’re probably right. I don’t really “fire” a client, I just stop working with them. Stop …

Fast, Good and Cheap: Pick 2 for Recruiting in a Post-COVID World

Kris Dunn Hiring Managers, Recruiting, Talent Acquisition, Talent Strategy 0 Comments

I’m on record as calling BS on the psychology of many Hiring Managers in a postrecession world, as many hiring managers think they have postrecession hiring power when it comes to the recruiting process.

Managing a remote team of recruiters isn’t easy! Especially if some of those recruiters are new to the show, or under-performing. Most TA leaders grew up in a world where we were able to get up close and personal with our teams. To be able to hear how they were interacting with candidates, and deliver our “brilliant” coaching when needed. …

Kris Dunn candidate experience, Digital Interviewing, Interviewing, Selection

I know. We should be kinder and gentler during the sh*****w that this past year has been. I generally agree. There’s just this one little problem. As hiring everywhere ramps back up, we’ve lost any muscle memory we once had related to interviewing. Let’s face it, most hiring managers (and some of us as real recruiters) aren’t great to begin …

A Talent Supply what? We have stupid committees for everything in today’s organizations. Some are legit (committees focused on belonging and inclusive culture, etc.), while some prove we’ve lost our minds (Replacement Carpet Color Committee, Vending Machine Snack Committee, Corporate Zoom Approved Backgrounds Committee). I came across this concept of a Talent Supply Committee. What is a Talent Supply Committee …
