All recruiters are cockroaches…

Hey… don’t blame me… wasn’t my idea… seriously… you think I’d call my own industry a bunch of darkness dwelling, creepy crawly germ infested bugs? Again… not my description… you can thank Wikipedia for that! So… back to cockroaches. I’m writing this post from one of the most beautiful places in the world (you can … Continue reading “All recruiters are cockroaches…”

The Recruiter’s Biggest Nightmare…

So… I was working from home yesterday. Woke up. Had a shower. Breakfast. Brushed my teeth… Am I boring you yet? Sat down in front of my computer. Looked at emails. Responded to the important ones.

We also had the gall to propose that we had the answers and would be doing things very differently this year…. Hmmmmm… Since posting that … Continue reading “Can we fix it?… Yes we Can…”

Guess What? Recruitment is Broken…

Ok… welcome back and all that! Hope you had a great festive season, but more importantly I hope you are refreshed and ready for the challenges of 2014… how many of you are still writing 2013 in dates? I know I am… Anyway, I’m not going to beat around the bush in this post. I … Continue reading “Guess What? Recruitment is Broken…”

2013… Goodbye, Farewell & Amen…

Wow! Where did 2013 go? No seriously… where the hell did the year go? There’s been a massive change in the domestic & global recruitment landscape over the past 12 months… massive. I wrote a prediction blog back in January  – Things that will happen in the world of recruitment (and beyond) in 2013 – … Continue reading “2013… Goodbye, Farewell & Amen…”
