• Survey Shows TA Is Sitting at the Kids’ Table
    Does Talent Acquisition have a “seat at the table”? The answer is —  Wait. Did you just groan at that phrase? If you’re like many of your colleagues, you’re probably tired of hearing it endlessly — to the point that it’s almost become trendy to roll your eyes when someone says it because we’re all […]
  • Would You Hire People With No Résumés, Interviews, or Background Checks?
    “When people say they want to work, we say yes. We give them an opportunity with no questions asked, no résumés, no interviews, no background checks. We replace scrutiny with trust.” That’s the philosophy of Greyston Bakery. The company is best-known for its practice of open hiring, an approach that embraces an individual’s potential by providing […]
  • Pre-Hire Assessment Lessons From the NFL
    As a talent acquisition professional, you’re probably at least somewhat aware of pre-hire assessments, especially given that 82% of companies use them in their hiring process. Few, however, are using them in the right ways. That is, they are not truly investing in comprehensive assessment strategies based on best practices. Reasons include: Lack of support […]
  • Experience Doesn’t Predict New-Hire Success: Avoid This Most Expensive Hiring Error
    If you’re involved in hiring, it’s critical that you act on this startling revelation: “Experience doesn’t predict a new hire’s success.” Hiring with a focus on experience is, of course, a well-established tradition in recruiting. In fact, a Harvard Business Review study found that 82% of sampled job ads either required or stated a strong […]

  • 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around the country, I consistently hear that organizations are still hosting conventional sit-across-the-table-and-ask-outdated-questions interviews reminiscent of an old-school industrial environment.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. We talked about Alan’s mission to produce and execute innovative ideas that allow Amazon to hire […]
  • 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 […]
