The simple phrase LinkedIn’s head of recruiting uses to grab candidates: As a recruiter, you've likely had the experience of having a candidate “go dark.” Maybe they didn’t call you back or they failed to send something they promised to send. Understandably, this made you concerned. Did this mean they weren’t serious about the job? Did they lose interest? Or did something personal come up? …Read More…

4 reasons why you shouldn’t Ignore your Linked in background image: The director of the career center for which I work recently sat in on one of my LinkedIn workshops in which I talked about how to use your whole LinkedIn profile to brand yourself. I thought I did well, and afterward I asked the director for her thoughts.She was happy with my performance, but she said I forgot one thing. I never mentioned how your LinkedInbackground image — the picture which sits behind your headshot — could be used as a branding opportunity. I should have known this, but it honestly didn’t occur to me until she mentioned it. Boy, did I feel like an idiot. …Read More…

 Thought leaders and experts: They have good insights, but not all of the answers: No one denies the fact that our world needs experts,thought leaders, and world-renowned specialists. That’s because it’s clear that we DO need people who are capable of dedicating their entire time and efforts to gaining as much experience as possible for one important thing — so they can teach and help others. There are experts in every field known to humankind, and here in the Internet Age, we make great use of the expertise of these people. However, there is a huge “but” connected to that.  …Read More..

The key to success? It’s getting the hiring manager to really trust their recruiters: You’ve spent years in therapy attempting to identify yourself, yet you think you can know me in 30 minutes? That my entire being, my soul, passions, knowledge, abilities, and creativity, can be assessed by you and your stone-faced, unpassionate behavioral questions – because you’ve been given the working title of “Recruiter?”

The dystopian Myers-Briggs test questions that I have to answer are pedantic questions from you, and standard answers cannot just be explained. Life, like work, is not always black and white. …Read More

Cybersecurity consciousness for human capital management: The more the access points are there for a device, the more is the vulnerability potential. It’s shocking how 71% of cyberattacks around the world are targeted on small and mid-sized companies because of the low allocation of the budgets for cyber protection. Human capital management is heavily dependent on software, tools, and platforms to access documents, give feedback, recruit candidates, and other such activities. To say the least, the entire spectrum of a chief human resources officer responsibilities like compensation and benefits, talent acquisition, employee engagement, talent retention, performance analysis, feedback, succession planning, and employee experience- fall within the ambit of cybersecurity consciousness.  …Read More…

A CEO 10 directors and mop!:   Does that sound like the hierarchy in your organization? I hope not- because it certainly is the case with a few. Organizations today have parted ways with the never ending hierarchical structure of executives climbing the ladder to reach the top.  Most millennial companies boast of having a flat structure, open door policy and have done away with traditional job titles for good.  They have instead reinvented new names like CFO- Chief Fun Officer, Innovation Guru and Chief Geek.  ….Read More…

Profiles in Transformational Talent Acquisition Leadership: Molly Weaver of Children’s Mercy, Kansas City

Profiles in Transformational Talent Acquisition Leadership: Molly Weaver of Children’s Mercy, Kansas City  
By Christina Archer 

RecruitAlliance Transformational Talent Acquisition LeadershipIn our new monthly series, “Transformational Talent Acquisition Leadership," we connected with Molly Weaver, Director of Talent Acquisition for Children’s Mercy, Kansas City.  Located in Kansas City, Missouri, the 367-bed pediatric hospital has an exceptional reputation, across the country.  Designated by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s best children’s hospitals, and consistently voted one of the best places to work in Kansas City, Children's Mercy has taken a creative approach to war for top talent. 

And it begins with Molly. 

Molly has a talent acquisition (TA)career that spans nearly fifteen years. She started outside of the medical industry, working as an HR generalist with T-Mobile.  As her career with the mobile solutions company evolved, she found herself focused increasingly on talent acquisition and recruitment. 

Molly grew her career as a healthcare TA leader through a unique circumstance that fueled her passion to hire the best possible clinicians for Children's Mercy.  Two weeks before officially starting with the hospital, Molly visited Children's Mercy as the parent of a sick child—her son has a kidney issue that required treatment.  She was so impressed with the level of care her son and family received throughout the process, she wanted to help the organization continue hiring amazing care providers and personnel. 

During the interview with this dynamic and and forward-thinking talent acquisition professional, RecruitAlliance asked Molly help other recruitment professionalsRecruitAlliance - Talent Acquisition marketplace succeed in their industries.   

Children’s Mercy has a team of ten recruiters. Of the ten, four focus on hard-to-fill roles, and the other six are Molly’s volume recruiters. Molly said it’s important to separate high-volume from hard-to-fill recruiting because the skills necessary to be successful look very different. Her organization rarely uses outside recruiting agencies, because her team adequately serves that headhunting role, regularly making cold calls, and performing regular outreach to qualified candidates.   

The high-volume recruiters process applications and move candidates through the hiring process—a much different skill, Molly acknowledges. By splitting the duties of the recruiters, Molly has been able to leverage the team in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.  

Although Children’s Mercy doesn't use traditional job boards it does take advantage of candidate sourcing and recruiting tools via LinkedIn, Facebook and Entelo. 

Molly also encourages her team to be proactive in creative and unique ways.  One of those is an outreach program with local schools in the Kansas City Metropolitan area that helps Children's Mercy groom more people for careers in pediatric healthcare.  Molly also has developed a program with a local college, to nurture students' interest in working as EEG techs—a job with talent shortages.  Children's Mercy also offers its employees tuition assistance, targeted towards positions of most critical need at the hospital.  

RecruitAlliance - Video Interview TechnologyChildren’s Mercy also was an early adopter of video interviewing technology—which allowed the organization to more quickly and efficiently interview candidates for its graduate nursing program.  It turned into a win-win for the candidates and her talent acquisition team. 

Molly implemented "Introduce Yourself" on the hospital's career web page, which allows candidates who don’t have time to fill out an application, or who may not meet all requirements for a particular job at the moment, to express interest in working at Children's Mercy via a video interview.   

The efforts are clearly working.  Children's Mercy has a clinical turn-over rate of 6.5%, well-below the healthcare industry average of 19.2%
