If you’re an agency recruiter or hiring company, stop by and visit RecruitAlliance.

7 Must have skills for a b2b tech Services firm Marketing Team: When it comes to effectively marketing professional services, many technology services firms find the process of building a strategy significantly easier than deploying that strategy. That is because even the simplest, most straightforward marketing strategy requires a wide range of skills to execute. So, what are the requisite skills for marketing a tech services firm effectively? What skills should you be looking to add to your team? …Read More…

The predictive Indicators of Leaders with high potential: In recent years, the “9-box” has become a nearly universal template for identifying high potential (“hipo”) leaders, thanks in part to its highly publicized usage at GE under CEO Jack Welch in the 1990s. However, this template provides absolutely no guidance on how to define “high potential.” Most organizations define it as “the potential to reach a certain level (e.g., vice president) within a specific time frame (e.g., five years)”, but that definition is not helpful to smaller companies that have few management layers. Also, most organizations have difficulty differentiating genuine hipos from those who are solid performers but have limited potential to succeed in bigger, more complex roles …Read More… .

ATS/ Background Check integration: The next big trend in recruiting tech?: According to HireRight’s 2016 Employment Screening Benchmark Report, 34 percent of HR departments strive for a more efficient candidate experience. That number may not be terribly high, but it’s still a good trend to see: The more efficient the hiring process is, the better an employer will be at wooing candidates. In the effort to make hiring processes go more smoothly, some think that integrations between applicant tracking systems (ATSs) and background-checking software may be the next big thing in human resources. HireRight is already making moves in that direction by connecting its background-checking and drug-testing solutions to Workday’s recruiting solution. …Read More…

The best way to apply for out of state jobs: Many job seekers seem to get nervous about applying to out-of-state jobs, but it can actually be fairly simple. The best way to apply for out-of-state jobs is to apply as if you were in state. What does that mean? Here are a few tips: Fix the Header on Your Resume The first step to applying for out-of-state jobs is to change up your header so it reflects the location of the job to which you are applying. There’s no need to include an address, but if you’re applying for jobs in Boulder, Colorado, include “Boulder, CO” in place of your current address. …Read More…

The Future of recruiting mobile: It wasn’t even half a decade ago that top-of-the-line smartphones were out of the question for most. Today, we reach for our phones as a reflex. Faced with an unanswered question, a moment of free time, or virtually any unmet need, we turn to our smartphones. Because we shop, pay, talk, meet, and learn on our phones, it only makes sense that we would start to look for new jobs on our phones as well. Indeed, the future of recruiting is mobile. What Is Mobile Recruiting?  …Read More…

5 Tips to make your remote sales reps connected and successful: Together, new technologies and changing philosophies on work/life balance have created an increasingly mobile workforce. In a survey of business leaders at the Global Leadership Summit in 2014, more than a third of respondents said half their full-time employees would be working remotely by 2020. A quarter of respondents said more than 75 percent of their employees would not be working in traditional offices by 2020. A massive shift like this will have a profound impact across all industries and fields, but perhaps the effects will be even more pronounced in sales. Salespeople thrive on the energy of engaging with others, and they need to be motivated on a daily basis. ..Read More..

The case for developing a recruitment website for your company: Recruiting is no longer an activity that only takes place when a company has a vacancy to fill. Today, recruitment happens 24/7/365. Smart employers are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to reach and engage prospective hires. How a Recruitment Website Can Help In an improving job market where candidates have increased leverage and multiple opportunities, it’s the employer that has to do the selling. In an effort to differentiate themselves, many companies are trying to enhance their images through recruitment websites that are specifically designed to target and engage candidates. … Read More…

Overcoming past legal issues to land the job: Questions around past legal trouble have come up multiple times recently, so it’s worth addressing. A reader writes, “I’m a job seeker with a felony record and a college degree. I can’t expunge the record, and I’m not sure what to do. Where should I begin?” First, I’m sorry to hear that this is a common issue people face in the work world. It can be difficult from both the employee’s and the employer’s perspective. One common scenario is someone making a mistake at a young age, learning from the experience, growing up, and moving on. Unfortunately, their legal record doesn’t move on with them. …Read More…

Your company can get top talent for less- by earning great reviews: When it comes to employees, you get what you pay for. Offer competitive salaries, and you’ll have a better chance of attracting the best. But those salaries don’t necessarily have to be higher than everyone else’s if your company earns great reviews on Glassdoor, according to a new study conducted independently by academics at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in Spain. Not only did the study find that candidates are more likely to apply to jobs after reading good reviews of the company, but it also found that candidates would accept lower salaries from positively reviewed companies than they would from competitors.. …Read More…

Put on the spot? Here is how to own your response: No one likes being put on the spot, but the experience does teach you to anticipate the unexpected. That’s a lesson forever useful in life and in business. While technological advances in communication have diminished the frequency of in-person interactions, face-to-face exchanges are still among the most preferred forms of business communication, according to marketing strategy firm Ballantine. In one survey conducted by Verizon, 87 percent of respondents said in-person meetings were more creative and productive than virtual meetings …Read More…

3 Things to consider When answering the “Tell Me about your self” Question: The directive from the interviewer to “tell me about yourself” strikes fear into the hearts of even the most confident candidates. That’s because they haven’t given serious consideration to how they should answer this directive. It’s also because they haven’t taken time to construct a persuasive elevator pitch, which is one of the most important tools in your job search toolbox. There are three components necessary to answering the “tell me about yourself” question: …Read More…

What does 2017 hold for the world of flexible work: Will 2017 be the year that flexible work finally becomes the norm?

However, that could change this year, according to Sara Sutton Fell, CEO and founder of flexible work job board FlexJobs. The eight-hour workday seems to be on its way out, with 63 percent of workers expecting it to become obsolete. Sixty-eight percent of workers also expect to start working remotely instead of commuting to an office every day. …Read More…

3 Tips for building connections that last: While management is often a serious and goal-directed pursuit, there also exists a contrary approach – “management by walking around.” The idea is that you can sometimes manage best just by wandering around the factory floor or office without any specific agenda other than to learn something useful and, more importantly, to establish connections with your coworkers and employees. These connections are some of the most important management tools you can develop. …Read More…

How extreme recruiting is winning over millennial tech talent: Millennials and Generation Z are flocking to Silicon Valley for jobs. No surprise, then, that many companies outside the Valley are looking for innovative ways to attract and retain star coders in a technology-driven market. A study from Burning Glass found programming jobs are growing 12 percent faster than the market average, meaning even more competition. The challenge remains even after companies successfully secure new talent: A TEK systems study reported 42 percent of IT leaders believe their businesses struggle to retain top picks in tech. …Read More…

How to make your gut and brain hire together: A few years ago, when I was running my own startup, I had to make a really important hire. It was for one of our first salaried positions, and I wanted to get it right. We interviewed several very qualified people, and winnowed them down to two finalists. We went back and forth over these final two, and finally went with the one who was the most objectively qualified. …Read More…

How to make the most of a performance review: Do you wish you were making more money? Do you feel frustrated that you haven’t received the promotion you’ve been waiting for? Well, now’s the time to make a case for yourself – when your annual employee performance evaluation is coming up. One of the biggest mistakes people make at work is not taking performance reviews seriously enough. Many of us see them as yet another item we have to check off our to-do lists by a certain date. With so much else on our plates, we often rush through the process. There’s just too much going on to waste time on this silly administrative task! …Read More…

Why your talent management practices should center on top talent: In a world of multigenerational workforces and falling unemployment levels, traditional methods of attracting, retaining, and engaging employees are losing their effectiveness. Cerno, which provides adventure learning programs to organizations, recently published a white paper entitled “The Talent Challenge: How Leading Companies Attract, Retain, and Engage Top Talent.” The paper outlines several of the factors that complicate employee retention efforts today, including declining unemployment, generational differences in engagement, and the higher expectations employees have of their employers. The paper also offers a potential solution to these challenges: focusing on what top talent needs. …Read More…

Take time to negotiate stop by and visit  RecruitAlliance.

The interview isn’t over until you’ve sent your follow-up notes: Some people believe the interview is over once they’ve shaken hands with the interviewers and left the room. That went well, they think. Now it’s time to wait for the decision. And perhaps it did go well – but perhaps one or two other candidates also had stellar interviews and followed up on their interviews with thank-you notes. So here’s the question: When is the interview really over? The answer: not until you’ve sent a follow-up note! If you don’t believe that a follow-up note is important, read this article and note that, according to CareerBuilder, when a candidate does not send a follow-up: …Read More…

Before accepting a job offer, Take time to negotiate: We can all agree that the interview process can be stressful and exhausting. You spend weeks, sometimes months, going through many rounds of interviews, tests, and background checks. If you’re concurrently employed, you do all this in secret, slipping out of work and trying not to spill the beans to coworkers and friends. You cannot wait for the process to be over so that you can stop all the sneaking around. Often, when a job offer comes your way, it’s delivered by a human resources representative or the hiring manager. They call you on the phone, note a few quick stats like starting salary and vacation days, and ask if you’ll accept and what date you can start. …Read More…

Why every company should implement a leadership development program in 2017: It’s hard to believe that 2016 has nearly come to an end, but what better time to start thinking of your organization’s learning and development programs than with the fresh start of 2017 on the horizon? Companies implement thousands of programs not only to ensure that their employees are happy and thriving, but also to attract the talent they need to continue succeeding. And yet, for most companies, the thought of developing a new program to implement in the new year can seem daunting. However, I think one program that all organizations should consider launching in 2017 is a formal leadership development program – one that brings a level of middle management to the organization. …Read More…

What job seekers want to know about working with recruiting agencies: I recently received a question that is important for all job seekers to consider: “Should I work with an external recruiter, and if so, how do I do that?” If you’ve never tried it before, enlisting the help of a placement firm can be a confusing proposal. It’s tough to know where to find a recruiter, how to begin, and what to expect. The good news is, working with an external recruiter (a.k.a., a “headhunter”) is not as hard to do as it seems – you just need to know a few things first. …Read More…

Here ‘s how to structure your interview process to maximize the chances you’ll make the right hire: Making a new hire requires a lot of time and effort—which is no big secret if you’re a recruiter! But it’s not just recruiters dedicating their resources to hiring: Everyone from hiring managers and potential team members to senior leaders and receptionists can be called in to participate in some aspect of the interview process. Yet for an activity that touches so many people, interviewing is not always given the respect it deserves. …Read More….

Hiring for start-up. How to find the right Candidate: At big companies like Google, there’s a constant influx of resumes—candidates clamoring to work for a company with billions of users, top salaries, and free food. But for early-stage start-ups, resources are tight. You can’t necessarily pay market salaries or offer fancy perks—or even guarantee that your company will still be around in six months. Many great candidates have never even heard of you. And yet you want your first team members to not only be exceptional individuals, but to live and breathe your start-up. … Read More…

How to successfully job search during the holiday season: Many job seekers have told me that they want to put their searches on hold during the holidays because they don’t believe they will see results during this period. This is a mistake! Despite the common opinion, many companies continue with their recruiting efforts during the holidays. While you might need to be more patient, there is a huge benefit in leveraging this slower time. With the proper strategy, it is possible to land your dream job – which will surely lead to some extra holiday cheer! As a former agency and in-house recruiter, I can tell you that January is one of the busiest hiring months of the year – and the hires made in that month are being interviewed in November and December! …Read More..
