Frustration

 

One of my “new” sourcers who had worked on three or four jobs sent me this email explaining to me why he did not think he could do telephone names sourcing:

 

I appreciate all that you have done for me; you have been very kind in trying to get me started on telephone name sourcing. I do not think that I can do it. I offer this explanation since you have been kind and willing to be a mentor.

 

Finding this kind of…

How do you quantify a passive candidate?

I quantify response rates like this:



A Interested Now (Tell Me More)

B Not Interested Now - Maybe In The Future

C Not Interested Now (No Thanks)

D Can't Reach

E Contact Info or Candidate Info Wrong (It happens!)



I telephone potential candidates (when I do profiling) so my response rates are usually higher than response rates generated by email.

I may dial a potential candidate's number several times before I reach them…

HR: You Want A Seat At The Table?

I hear and read a lot of bemoaning out of HR (and staffing) that they don’t have a “seat at the table.”

 

We all hear about how we can “align” to the company’s business strategy but how in the world can lowly HR accomplish that?

 

What business contribution can staffing make that will help the company realize their growth goals?

 

Growth is one of the most important performance metrics by which a firm is evaluated.

 

What…

"Do You Want To Sell Your Business?" I Asked...

Phone sourcers are in a unique position to not only conduct competitive intelligence at companies but also to find businesses (companies) that may have an interest in selling.  

It's called acqui-sourcing ! (acquisition + sourcing = acquisition (acqui) sourcing

What is AcquiSourcing?

Companies are buying other companies JUST TO ACQUIRE WORKFORCES.

 

It’s true; it’s happening and to deny it is to have your head stuck in the sand.

 

The scarcity of in-demand employees in the U.S. economy is fueling this practice and a new term has emerged that refers to it: Acqui-hiring (meaning acquisition + hiring)

 

This is becoming increasingly important in tech as…

Are You A Good Team Member? FREE OFFER - short time

Dr. Janice Presser, RN, PhD  did a “Teamability” assessment on me to see how I work in a team environment. 

 

It was interesting.

 

Taking the “test” I didn’t see how it could produce results.

 

But it did and they surprised me.

 

This is NOT a personality test.

LinkedIn workforce representation So which is it? 5% or 32%?

October 2012  

We just pulled a group of 58 at a major world-class defense company here in the U.S.  

19 are on LinkedIn.  

Most of them only say "Engineer" (or some variant) in their titles and would not be identifiable as being in the correct group my customer wanted (mechanical subsystems) w/out going calling in and pulling the names directly from the company!

What Percentage Of The Workforce Is Really Represented On LinkedIn?

In the coming year I'm going to keep a running tally here on the different jobs I do and report the percentage of names I gather by telephone sourcing that are on LinkedIn.

I just finished an IT job and you'd think IT would be heavily represented on LinkedIn, wouldn't you?   (I did - I figgered it would be second to LinkedIn's most populous and ravenous population - recruiters and sourcers!)  It may still well be.

On this job I was looking for Data Architects…

Is the female voice an advantage over a male voice when phone sourcing?

Is the female voice an advantage over a male voice when phone sourcing?

Lots of people think it is.

Me?  I'm not so sure.

Given that most Gatekeepers are female there are differing opinions as to the difference even this starting point makes!

Do women respond more readily to a female (or a male) voice?

Do men command more compliance from (mostly) female Gatekeepers?

Do female Gatekeepers respond more readily to…
