  • Software Engineers Do Not Leave Their Jobs for the Reason You Think They Do
    Why do software engineers leave their jobs? I asked this question in a large Slack group for programmers, and, well, it got a huge response — I think there was a thread with 40 replies at one point. Needless to say, it’s a contentious topic! Of course, we all know that having a bad manager […]
  • Are You Still Interviewing Candidates Like It’s 1975?
    I ask the question in the title of this post because in speaking with CEOs, management teams, and HR professionals around the country, I consistently hear that organizations are still hosting conventional sit-across-the-table-and-ask-outdated-questions interviews reminiscent of an old-school industrial environment. But that is not today’s environment — and interviews, like everything else in the workplace, […]
  • December: ’Tis the Season to Recruit When the Competition Is Low
    Need an edge in your competition for talent? Think December, when there may be 35% fewer job postings trying to attract the normal volume of jobseekers. If you’ve ever gambled in Las Vegas, you would know that when you face great odds like these, you need to be all in. If you are one of […]
  • Innovations in Recruiting From an Amazon Recruiting Leader
    In my hometown of Arlington, Virginia, we are all talking about our newest corporate neighbor, Amazon. At ERE’s recent conference in Washington, D.C., I spoke with Alan Henshaw, recruiting manager for Amazon Web Services in the Specialty Recruiting Organization.

  • Stop Worshipping at the Temple of Busy
    We’re at an “interesting time” or “crossroads” in recruiting. What else is new? People have been putting that on slide decks since 2006 — which makes sense because business evolves quickly in a digital age (heck, it sometimes revolves). Also, because recruiting is a bedrock of getting the people you need both now and in the […]
  • 5 Tips to Create a Terrific Talent Pipeline
    The demand for talent is at an all-time high. Of course, you already know that.

  • Hi, I’m Vadim. And I Don’t Hate You.
    I hate recruiters. Who among us hasn’t heard somebody at some point say that? No surprise that recruiting ranks among the most untrustworthy professions. But is the cliché warranted? Do most recruiters really suck?  I don’t know. But here’s what I do know: There are many, many amazing talent acquisition professionals who are continually pushing […]
  • Does Recruiting Belong Under Business Development?
    Real talk: We’ve been having discussions for literally years now about recruiting getting a “seat at the table.” As far back as 2008, during the doldrums of the Great Recession, an ERE conference keynoter said that adverse economic conditions would give recruiters their long, oft-sought “seat at the table.” That did not happen. If anything, […]
