Are You Enabling Bad Behavior From Hiring Managers?

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 11/23/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures.  That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree. I don’t mean giving them training sessions on the illegal questions to ask during interviews. I don’t mean giving them training […]

In conversations I have had over the last few months, I have been asked by a couple HR VPs and Directors that they wanted to launch into social media recruiting and wanted to know how I would do it. Going forward, I think my first question I ask is “why do you want to go […]

I was reading Careerbuilder’s report, “How to Rethink the Candidate Experience and Make Better Hires,” this week and saw some interesting things.  In today’s post I will go over a few of the things… 1.

Raising the Bar the Moneyball Way

I was recently rewatching the movie “Moneyball” and this movie often makes me think and rethink about the way we recruit. If you need a quick refresher, it comes down to the Oakland A’s had their best players hired away for more money than they could afford.  So big teams with big budgets would hire […]

It’s Time to Test Your Application Process

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 08/24/2016 in Recruiting articles |

Corporate Recruiters Need a CRM in Addition to an ATS

Posted by Eric Putkonen on 07/12/2016 in Recruiting articles |

I have worked in a few different corporate recruiting departments over the years.  They almost always had an Applicant Tracking System (ATS).  They never had a Customer Relationship Management system (CRM).  Then I went to UnitedHealth Group.  They have both an ATS and CRM for recruiters to use. “Why”, I thought.  Due to compliance with […]
