TALK. TALK. TALK.

The whole recruitment process, whether you are the candidate, the client, the head-hunter or the hiring manager- is listening. Have you ever picked up the phone and had a recruiter chewing your ear off for a good 20 minutes without even asking you how your day is going or if you’re even looking to move? Listening is just as crucial as talking and the two need to work together for any relationship to form.

SPAMMING

Received an email asking you if you are interested in a role that is completely and utterly irrelevant to you? I can sense the heads nodding… This is when recruiters don’t spend enough time looking through profiles and just mass email the hundreds in the hope that SOMEONE must answer. Spamming makes the recruiter look cheap and unprofessional and also devalues the role no matter how exclusive it may HAVE been.

SOCIAL MEDIA ZOMBIE

“Job title- day rate- location- link to job ad” Ever had someone add you on a Social Media website and their whole profile is just the same repetitive job postings? Social media can be used as a platform for headhunting/ job advertising. However using it solely for job posting isn’t the answer. Posting articles relevant to your industry or even interacting with your followers is better than just spamming the Time line with job advertisements.

POSTING THE EXACT SAME ADVERT EVERY SINGLE WEEK SINCE TIME BEGAN

Fake adverts do go out. That is inevitable and something that will never change. It’s an easy way for poor recruiters to build up their database and harvest leads. Some job ads can be tweaked ever so slightly so that the average job seeker doesn’t twig on to the obvious. However some recruiters are too lazy to even change them. It undermines their ability as a recruiter, they undermine your intelligence and the whole organisation is tarred with the same brush.

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
