How Do You “Interview”: Recruiting, Job Search And Dating



How To Interview

Question: when you are interviewing a candidate for a job, when you are interviewing for a job, when you are (were) on a date… do you find reasons to include or exclude them from the process?

NOTE: I am thinking out loud through a keyboard to get this idea out of my head… not a well thought out blog post so hang with me on this.

Try this another way… in any part of your life, when you are meeting someone new do you look for reasons to continue to speak with them and want to meet again or are you finding all the reasons not to?

Ponder that…

For me, I am always trying to find shared interests, commonalities and reasons to like someone.

That is my default.

I want to grow with people, share new ideas, be challenged. I want to be around people not like those who already are.

Recruiting In A Pandemic: Wake Up Your Company And Leadership Social Media Accounts



Recruiting In A Pandemic, Employer Branding

Take a moment and look at the social media accounts for your company, senior leadership team, hiring managers and… your own.

What story are you telling?

If When that candidate you have been recruiting does research on you all… what will they learn from the past months? Will they see Zoom photos of the team during a call? Will they see an image celebrating recent news? Will they see that you are hiring and have hired?

If the highly sought after person who you don’t know (don’t know is looking) is researching companies to pursue before the end of the year will they see content that appeals to them, gets them excited about you?

Or will they see… nothing?

I appreciate that a screen full of Zoom screen shots is not the most appealing… but you’re still telling your story. You’re showing people what it is like to work there now. You’re showing people what you are working on. You’re active and engaged. You’re showing pride in the team.

Or… you can continue to be silent.

And what message is that sending?

Click => to hear the webinar I recorded that talks about this, , and other topics.

And… chat with me.

If you have a recruiting question, idea to run by someone or like me just want to nerd out about recruiting, schedule a 30 minute call with me. I want to have more conversations.

Episode 1: What You Should Know with Paul DeBettignies aka Minnesota Headhunter



Here it is… my first episode of What You Should Know.

First some background…

I have long missed my conversations before, during and after with Casey Allen and Kathy Grayson when we did the MSP On Deck Podcast.

Like when I started this blog in 2005, I have things to get out of my brain.

With the “shutdown” one of the most frequently asked questions of me is, what’s going on in/with (fill in the blank).

This July 7th text from Kurt Schmidt (@krts), President of Foundry and Creator of The Schmidt List:

Idea: “This week in TC Tech Hiring” a weekly show where you give the low down on who’s hiring and laying people off. I’d listen to it.

And then a marathon of a catch up all with Kurt last week that included a commitment by me to do something like this and a promise from Kurt that if I didn’t there might be bodily harm done to me.

Look at me… did it in less than five days.

Recruiting In A Pandemic: Check Your Career Page Analytics


Minnesota Headhunter, Recruiter Jobs, Google Analytics

With the recession, pandemic, partial shutdown… whatever you want to call this, are you seeing the number of unique visitors and pageviews on your career page go up, down or do you know?

And how about the ratio of those numbers to applicants, resumes received and inquiries about your jobs?

Qualified applicants increasing or decreasing?

Are the sources of your traffic the same?

If your company is like most, these numbers, ratios and sources have changed a bit.

Some are seeing an increase in total and a reduction in qualified applicants. That makes sense.

A surprisingly higher number though are seeing a reduction in everything. That’s curious and needs to be looked at further.

Some are seeing their traffic from Indeed, LinkedIn, Social Media and Google change.

How about the specific jobs… changes there?

Recruiting In A Pandemic: Add COVID-19 Content To Your Career Page And Job Descriptions


Recruiting in a pandemic

Question… these past weeks and months (and next weeks and months) what is the one thing that is on most everyone’s mind every day in some way?

Something related to COVID-19.

What is the one thing missing from 90%+ of all career pages and job descriptions that most people are thinking about besides salary?

COVID-19 content.

Another question…

If you were going to do a job search (voluntary or involuntary) wouldn’t you want to know what a potential employers current working situation is?

Likely.

So… why is it missing from your career page and job descriptions???

You should have to be addressing this when you're recruiting.

This is one of the many topics I covered in my mid-August webinar, Pandemic Recruiting: What You and Your Team Should be Doing Right Now

Here is what I would be doing if I were you…
