Karalyn Brown, Founder of InterviewIQ, Co-Developer of myPitch app

karalyn brownI was very interested to read Dan Nuroo’s post next door on the importance of candidate conversations. It’s a topic close to my heart, and to the many people I have worked with through my blog, InterviewIQ – and through the work I have done coaching people through the recruitment process.

Guest Post: What to do Next After Sourcing a Superstar



By Dan Nuroo, Recruitment Manager IMA

$RTZ228D Sourcing Rocks… there I said it! I am a sourcing groupie, yes I am. I have a T-Shirt at home signed by Bill Boorman, Glen Cathey and Jim Stroud… yes I am that sad. But with all this cool amazing stuff that these guys do, and their kinsmen and women across the world, there seems to be a missing link of sorts.

Recruitment drives HR Technology innovation



Recruitment drives HR Technology innovation
Recruiters. Love them, loathe them. Whatever your view, it is undeniable that recruitment has long been the driver for innovation in HR and Talent Management technology.

From the very moment the first English backpacker picked up a telephone to target a prospective new client, a candidate scratched out a CV on the first versions of WordPerfect, or a Personnel Manager checked the fax machine for incoming job applications, recruitment and technology have been inseparable bedfellows. An industry that is competitive by nature and by definition will always seek to innovate in order to stay ahead of the pack.

Guest Post – Diversity Sourcing – A New Paradigm for Sourcers and Recruiters



Guest post by Jude-Martin Etuka, speaker at the Sourcing Summit
To those, who, as a matter of standard operating business practice, leverage diversity as fundamental to achieving key strategic objectives in the talent acquisition life-cycle – this topic might rightfully appear a contradiction in terms. ‘Diversity Sourcing’? “What is that?” one might ask. It was the same question I asked myself when requested to be part of a panel addressing the topic at the recently concluded 2012 Australasian Sourcing Summit.

    Evolution of RPOs in Australia



    RPO or Recruitment Process Outsourcing, a form of outsourcing where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment functions to an external service provider, has been around for some time in Australia.

    But very little data is available to gauge the size, prevalence, types and extent of  RPO adoption by companies in Australia. Anecdotal evidences seem to suggest that adoption is increasing, driven in large part by the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all RPO model. In fact the type of RPO models differ across industry sectors and locations, influenced greatly by size of organisation, culture, volume of jobs and the expertise of suppliers.

    The Road Ahead For Recruiters



    Roadahead

    Recruiters and talent solution providers are almost always facing a crossroad, largely because the behaviour of employers, the workforce and workplaces change rapidly. Add the influence of macro factors such as the state of the economy, unemployment, labour participation rate, skill shortages and advances in technology, and you have an industry perennially on the cusp of change.

    So, what does the road ahead looks like for recruiters and those in the business of providing human capital services?

    Steve Jobs on talent management



    "If you wanna hire great people and have them stay working for you….. you have to let them make a lot of decisions. You have to be run by ideas, not hierarchy. The best ideas have to win, otherwise good people don’t stay" – Steve Jobs
