- john sumser & daughter bridget at onrec
Checkout recruiting icon John Sumser of Interbiznet and his daughter
Bridget present at the Onrec conference in Chicago last week. They
focus on the generational divides and the impact those divides have on
sourcing. Enjoy. (Cheezhead)
- Do you really want the job? 'Cause it
doesn't seem like you do.
With our recent exploration of the Job Candidate Bill of Rights and all of
our talk about "candidate control," it might seem as though we're blaming
everything that's wrong with the industry on recruiters; as if somehow it's
only the fault of the recruiter (or hiring authority) that's keeping
candidates from landing their dream jobs. Not so, friends. We realize that
candidates have a major responsibility to the process, and we also realize
that many of them simply aren't doing what they need to do to get great
opportunities. The largest problem seems to be that candidates simply don't
know enough about the job or the industry they're trying to land in: (itzBig)
- Total Comp Integration
One of the beautiful things about integrated total compensation is that it's
easy to get – you can buy if from any one of hundreds of vendors. (there are
probably only a few dozen who actually do it well though). I said it's easy
to get, not necessarily easy to do. Total compensation is really a mix
between current cash that you can get out of your payroll system, current
benefits you can get out of your benefits system (but sometimes you'll need
the individual benefit vendors) and your retirement and equity plans.
Unfortunately for the last, you'll almost definitely need those vendors to
give you current snapshots of employee account balances. (Systematic
- Monster Targets the Middle Market - A
conversation with Neal Bruce
At ERE Conference and Expo in Hollywood, Florida, Neal Bruce, Vice President
of Alliances at Monster, announced the "Monster Talent Management Suite," a
set of fully integrated employment solutions targeted toward small
businesses and mid-size enterprise companies. Adding to the DDI talent
assessment tool announced earlier this year, Neal announced a new technology
agreement with HRsmart, a leading developer of talent management software
- HBR – Why Work Should Not Be
I'm an avid reader of Harvard Business review. Most of the time, I skip
articles that are not meaningful to me. The ones I decide to read are almost
always quite insightful. Then again, sometimes I stumble on something that
is so ridiculous it's quite funny. The following is one of the latter.
- Why does a job have to be meaningful and
fulfilling? Isn't it enough that work is simply worthwhile – which is to
say worth the employee's time considering his or her circumstances? A
former student to mine sells a remedy for irritable bowel syndrome, a
job she doesn't find particularly meaningful. But she dies believe that
for someone with her skills, experience, priorities, and goals, selling
this product for this company is certainly worthwhile. Consequently she
believes that she has a good job.
- The new recruiting.com
I have been debating in my head do or don't I post about the new
recruiting.com. If I post will I just add to the hype and if I don't will I
regret not getting my thoughts out. I also am a bit bitter about the whole
thing as I had grand plans to do exactly the same thing, not just for the
recruiters out there but for all HR professionals who blog. But I do not
have the dollars in the bank to fund such an activity, and I am just a hack
when it comes to code, so I stopped. (Specht)
- the new new internet
tomorrow (wednesday) i'll be kicking off the new new internet web 2.0
conference in washington d.c. they've got a pretty cool lineup -- everyone
from arrington to msft to google and more. more details can be found here.
my talk will be on "how to build a web 2.0 business." (Jason
- Mendozaaaa! Hates Neil Bruce
Because Neil thinks Dave is as useful as a second door knob.
Mendozaaa! has posted a vitriolic rejoinder to recent statements made by
Monster's VP of Alliances. Why? Because, he claims, Neil Bruce is a
half-baked, blinkered nobody who goes from show to show trumpeting his
worthless message that blogs are nothing and sourcers are headed for the
trash heap of history. According to Angry Dave, Neil can't hold a candle to
real men of vision like Jay-Dee Jason Davis, the Seer of Recruiting.com, or
Shally Elvis Steckerl, the teen idol of salivating sourcers the world over.

- How Integration Should Look at the
How drilldowns really work:
When we think about how we want integration to look when brought forward to
the user interface, we want true usability as opposed to the simple
presentation of data. As we make life easier for our managers and employees,
what we're really doing is making the process simpler and allowing managers
to forward employee careers more efficiently. This is a simple way of saying
it's all for the benefit if higher engagement and retention rates. (Systematic
- ERE Miami: The Best Part of Recruiting
ERE Miami was my third in a row conference with them, David Manaster and
Kate Bruener ran another great event with well over 400 attendees which has
been growing with each event. The keynote speaker was Seth Grodin, basically
the king of marketing it seems, and he put on an extrodinary presentation.
He said it was the first presentation he had done specifically for
recruiters, but you would never have known that. As as big fan & promoter of
CRM over ATS, his ideas of marketing and "farming talent" was music to my
ears. My only worry was that recruiters in the audience were fearful that it
is much easier said than done when you work in a "req based" hiring world.
Or where the hiring managers have a "hire the best who applied" mentality,
farming might not be so easy. But...believe me...it can be done...and is
being done. (Talent
