Think You're a Good Recruiter? Prove It!

Take the Virtual In-Box Challenge!

Think You're a Good Recruiter? Prove It!

During my twenty years in Human Resources, much of my focus has been in the area of Recruiting. I have been a corporate recruiter, a 3rd party recruiter, a recruiting manager, and a consultant to the recruiting function. In all those years and even today, I often hear about how broken recruiting is. You hear people say most recruiters don't know how to recruit, they are lazy, they post and pray, they throw paper over the wall.

But if everyone is saying this, then how do you know who the good guys are? How do you know if you are really that good?

It's time you step up and prove it!

The Best Application of Gamification I have Seen To Date

The Best Application of Gamification I have Seen To Date

To steal a line from Laurie Ruettimann, if there was one word I would like to punch in the face as hard as I can it would be "gamification." It is one of those topics that makes me feel like the world has been overtaken by alien bodysnatchers and I am the last human standing. Do we really need to turn everything into a game just to keep people's interest? 

I am not one for the FourSquare type games where you strive to accumulate points and badges, or even worse, spending time and real money maintaining a fictitious online farm. But I recently bumped into my friend Scott Swimley at the HCI Strategic Talent Acquisition conference. He told me about his new company Gild and how they are leveraging gamification for a real purpose.
