Bring the Candidate’s Voice into Your Hiring Process

Job seekers often realize very quickly that not all hiring processes are created equal. While the job search should be a time of optimism and excitement, it is often ruined by hiring processes that are not optimized for the job seeker’s convenience. Some recruiters get the process totally right, some get part of it right, and others simply miss the mark altogether.

Even if your hiring process isn’t totally perfect, there are some non-negotiable aspects that must be in place in order to keep optimistic and engaged candidates moving through your pipeline....  read more

How to Customize the Sales Message for the Candidate


In life, we are all looking for the perfect match to compliment us. It’s the same for recruiting in business; we want that “perfectly matched” candidate whose goals and ambitions align with the company’s vision. When you’ve found “the one” it’s important to keep communication open and the message clear. Once expectations are set, it’s important to keep both parties happy. Just as in any relationship, you’ve got to make sure both parties are getting what they need! It is an ever-evolving relationship that will need constant nurture and care. Business Development Manager James Holt discuss this on so you can keep your message clear and your candidates happy, and he does it with some of the best songs from the 90s.

A few years ago, when I was an IT recruiter back in Washington, D.C. (see what I did there?

It was always a delight to follow up with them six months later and learn that they were indeed happy with the new direction in their career. ...  read more
