Trends in Staffing | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, I refer to an article written by Dr. John Sullivan about the top trend in recruiting for the coming year.

Summary

This is a video that I'm doing calling attention to an article by Dr. John Sullivan on eremedia.com or you may also find it on ere.net where he talks about the number one trend toward going into recruiting for the new year. He goes through a variety of them, but this is the number one trend he believes is going to be important for a company. I think it's valid. It's a shift toward database decision making in recruiting.
Why? Because, lately, in recruiting, he says everyone's gotten good at collecting metrics. Unfortunately, after collecting them, no one ever does anything with them. Here's his best practices for creating a database decision model.
He says data is going to reveal which sources provide and produce quality applicants and hires and will also reveal which types of interviews and interview questions best identify future top performance.
In a previous trend, he recognizes that the cost of a bad hire is extraordinary. DUH! Like you know all recruiting firms have spoken about this for years but no one pays attention to us and hopefully you'll notice this trend and not take a "penny wise, pound foolish" and start to measure where your top people are coming from.
It can can also show you whether your references are an accurate predictor of future performances because, these days, half of new hires are coming from employee referrals. It can also show you your new hire failure rate which can also average as high as 46%. It reveals which recruiters and hiring managers routinely produce the highest quality hires and which do not. It also reveals which single factor has the highest impact on hiring success.
For example, he offers the relationship with the hiring manager. Data can be useful but it's also an examination of the past and it doesn't take into consideration the future. They're going to be new factors and new avenues for exploration for where you find retail and right now it's heavily referral oriented great saves you money. It's also like getting a testimonial from someone who works at your firm as to the quality of this individual. That's terrific but in the future, there may be new ways you have to be open to them as well. It started measuring the success of these techniques and not just simply the old ones.

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter he answers a question about what she should do while working in a bad environment.

Summary

I received a letter today from someone who sounded very down. It's also by thanking me for doing videos that she's fine, so very helpful. She continues on to comment that I said that when you look for a job, a person needs to know what you are looking for in a company. Then, she talks about her current circumstances that she finds very frustrating. It is an office where in order to get anything done. You have to move large boxes and she is afraid of hurting her back. There is. Also, an office environment that feels very clicky to her. She's being asked to contribute to the Christmas present for her boss. But this is a guy who gave a present to someone in her cubicle on their birthday, but not her. She is feeling burned out at this point. Clearly, she is looking for advice from me. "I'm trying to hold out but it is difficult. I need encouragement. I need some positive words of support. "

Here's what I told her – – the 1st order of business was thanking her for trusting me. Sometimes people find it difficult to know what they are looking for. Thus, it is sometimes easier to know what you are NOT looking for. Then flip it over to the other side and then explore some of the places between the 2 extremes.

For example, you know what you don't like about your current employer. Now bear the exact opposite (a place where people respect you and like you where you are part of the in group or there are no in groups. A place that is neat that is well organized where you are not someone who is being taken advantage of. Where you you are treated in a considerate way by your boss. I can go on and on with other attributes, but it would start off with that. Understand what you don't want to do and then explore the other side.

Then, in terms of encouragement,(1) . Sometimes you have to let the past be the past and start moving toward the future.(2) you contributed to these circumstances. I know this is sometimes hard for people to understand, but it's possible that you cause conditions that caused management and your coworkers to isolate you, not let you win or, secondly, in some way cause folks to not want to bring you into the clique. She has a part in why she is isolated.

(3) before speaking to anyone, focus away from the past and start working toward the future, which is elsewhere.

When all is said and done, you can beat yourself up and get depressed and worried about what your past is. However, what is far more valuable, what is far more helpful is to remember that you can go somewhere else where you will be treated differently. That's ultimately when everyone needs to do.

No BS Hiring Advice

Hiring Millennials | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages you to hire millennials into your workforce.

Summary

I want to talk to you about, as as a hiring manager, HR professionals, small business owner about hiring millennials. Millennials have an awful reputation and, mostly it's adult bigotry toward those younger thn them. Let me just explain.

Believe it or not, when you look at this face, I was once 20. When I was graduating college, it was the early 70s. You know, it was an era where younger individuals, you know, "hippies" had a certain reputation. Certainly, all the stories about younger people at that time were they'll never adjust to the workforce. They'll never, you know, work in an office. All they care about is getting out and playing. They are nine to fivers at best. They're lazy. Is this sounding vaguely familiar? You know, all they want to do is to go to concerts and fool around. This sounds remarkably like the Millennials.
I'll just simply say that for you, millennials, who roll your eyes at these stories, I'll just simply say you're going to be in the same boat at some point 25 years from now, looking at some generation that follows you, complaining, pissing and moaning about what their behaviors like. Because that seems to be the way that it works.
The boomers have gotten old and the result winds up being most of them are remarkably intolerant of what it's like to adjust from college or high school to the world of work. There is an adjustment that goes on and the ones that adjust quicker you tend to like. The ones that don't adjust, you tend to get rid of. That's the way it is.
So, I just want to remind you folks that you've got to be patient. You've got to hire on potential, some level of skill, you can't expect someone who's 20 to 25 years old to know to know as much as someone who's experienced.
But, take a look around you. If you only have an office of old people, what are you doing to the business that you're working for? You're killing it because, frankly, all of us old folks are going to die off. So, if you want to think intelligently about this and, Yes, I'm being insulting to you, because you haven't up until this point (At least many of you haven't up until this point), you've got to start laying the foundation with younger individuals to help them adjust to the workforce because that's the new leaders in your organization. Otherwise, you might as well just announce that to your management team that you want the business sold to an overseas firm and let's move on with it.
The fact of the matter is unless younger individuals start getting into the mix, then your firm is going to die off, need to be acquired and you're gonna be out of work later on in life.

Tell Me About a Time When Something Went Wrong at Work and You Took Charge | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

This is one of those tough interview questions that can be asked of people both had a senior level in the staff level.

Summary

The question I'm going to work with today is one that it's pretty clear. It's a behavioral interview question. It asks about a behavior that you've had previously and this one is geared towards leadership. You can always recognize the signal a behavioral interview question because it starts off with, "Tell me about a time when you . . . " and in this particular case, "tell me about a time when something went wrong at work, you took control to charge took action ..." something along those lines is what I'm looking for.
That really is the launch point. They want you to tell them a story and, again, following the format that I teach -- the story starts off with a situation, what the objective was, the action and the result and, in providing the result, you want to provide a metric for whatever impact was. That's a numerical measure of money saved, money earned, percent improvement, how you turned around the project and what the impact of your work was.
Now, if you're at a staff level, instead of this acronym of SOAR (situation, objective, action, result), I suggest situation, task, action ,result. Slightly different when you you are at a staff level than when you're at a leadership level.
So, what do they want to hear from you?
Number one is a time where you actually stepped up because a lot of people talk the talk and when asked the question like that, they provide a story that doesn't indicate that they've ever done it. So, they are listening for cues that indicate that you actually did step up, that you didn't take a back seat. In the course of working with other people that you actually stepped out front.
In telling the story what they don't want to hear is a lot of criticism. They don't want you complaining about your colleagues. They don't want you to get triggered emotionally and freaking out in front of them.
They want to have someone tell them a story that's clear, concise, and to the point that demonstrates that when the going gets tough, you step up. That, in a sense, that there's enthusiasm and passion and a commitment to lead no matter what's thrown at you . . . dare I say a little bit of bravery maybe. So, that's what they're listening for in your answering the question. Give it to them. It's really that simple.
If you don't, it's a void that they can fill in with their story about weakness and lack of suitability for leadership roles.

The Thing You Are Forgetting About in Your Interviews | JobSearchTV.com

What do firms look for? Competence is only one thing. Everyone forgets about the other big thing. Here, I remind you.

Summary

The thing you're forgetting about in your interviews. I've talked to john hunters. I've talked to people I coach about this for years. It's not just simply about career coaching or job search coaching. It's in a lot of other venues in life that this really shows up.
What is it that you're forgetting about?
What you're forgetting about . . . It's not school where you're being graded on having the right answers, at least not all of it. The thing that you're forgetting about is that it's not who has the most answers or the most right answers who wins. It's the one who has the most right answers, who gives them a feeling that they can be believed and trusted. So, it's your ability to inspire confidence that you can help them that becomes so important and, unless you do that, you're competing with everyone else who's trying to get 100% on the test.
And how did that work for you in school? Some of you got great grades. That's terrific. And now that you're in the world of work, you understand that there's another dimension that's there.
The person who gets chosen for the plum assignment because they're friendly with your boss, the person who gets pushed out the door because everyone thinks they're incompetent even when they aren't.
So, I want to remind you, it's not about your grade on the interview. It's about your ability to inspire confidence that are the solution to what they need, . . . which is a feeling. It's a feeling that comes about, not because you got all the right answers, but how you carry yourself as a professional, how you carry yourself in the interviews, how you handle yourself throughout all your interactions with them that makes all the difference in the world.
So, don't forget that and let it show up in quote unquote the theater . . . the theater of interviewing. You are a performance artist on the stage, trying to give them that feeling. And if you don't like it, tough. That's the way of the world, folks.
And if you don't like it, adapt, try my way. I know it works because, after all, I filled so many positions in my career as a headhunter. I know this extra dimension makes all the difference in the world.
So, don't neglect it. Don't forget about it. Don't ignore.

No BS Hiring Advice

You Are Missing Different Groups in Your Recruiting | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, I point our 3 different groups most organizations do a terrible job of sourcing

Summary

I'm going to talk with those of you who are involved with hiring. And I'll start by saying, I worked in search for more than 40 years, and filled more than 1200 full time positions, plus consulting assignments. I now coach people, so I'm not you're trying to sell you recruiting business. What I'm here to do is to offer some very simple advice in a no BS kind of way because your hiring managers are screwing themselves out of their ignorance and their bigotry. So, there are a number of different groups that could be interviewed and could be hired and do great work for you.
I'll start off with the one group that, time and again, delivers results but for many of your managers, they're worried about nonsense. That group is older workers --seniors, individuals who are close to retirement age, whatever that means these days. They are generally older than the hiring manager and the story they tell themselves is that these people will not take direction, they're burned out tired has-beens. That's a simple way of putting it, right?
And it's a lie that they're telling themselves and you and HR needs to confront it because you're staring at productivity issues. You're staring at them, complaining that they're not seeing enough people and demographics are such that they can take 22 year olds from Gen Z who have no experience. They can do that. Their work ethic is very similar to the older generation.
I'll simply say that, you know, the studies that I've been seeing point to Gen Z as being like a clone of the Baby Boomers in terms of their work ethic. So what's the issue with the Boomers? if you're liking Gen Z, the Boomers actually have experience, they will take direction and they'll work hard. They're not rushing out to retirement because they can't afford it. So, that's one group that you're hiring managers should pay attention to.
Another one, for certain types of positions, are ex-offenders. You know, people who've been incarcerated. Now ex-offenders, as long as they're involved with social services, as well, will work very hard, do a lot of good work. They need certain types of training, and then they need certain types of supports in your organization. But it's a population that gets ignored and often can do jobs that you really need people to do because these are not people who've been trained for accounting and finance or technology. They are labor for a lot of your organizations. Don't neglect ex-offenders, even if you have to pay to train them because once they've trained, they will be loyal.
The third group is moms who are returning from maternity or raising kids, for that matter. This is a workforce that wants to work, has decided that they're ready to work and there are a lot of jobs that they can do and, as an HR professional, you need to fill jobs, right? And your hiring managers want very simple behaviors out of people. What's the cost of training to get someone up to speed on things that they did before? Not all that expensive believe it or not.
I don't care what field this person worked in. They can do the job with a certain amount of training. You can also, if you're paying for training, get them to commit to work for your organization for a certain period of time or be obligated to pay the firm back for that training. It's not difficult. Just don't go crazy with . . . "You have to work for us for three years or else you will have to pay us back."
Nonsense. Absolute nonsense. Don't do that kind of crap. Just amortize it out over the course of a year. If they leave the within the year. They owe you the money back.
