Compassionate HR podcast with Margo Rose

MargoToday I had the opportunity to be a part of Margo Rose’s Compassionate HR program.  She has periodic podcasts focused on helping job seekers, business owners, and recruiters.  The recorded episode is available on her BlogTalkRadio channel–click this link and scroll to the 12/8/2011 timeframe in the index to find my podcast.

We covered topics such as:

  • How I got into recruiting.
  • How the economy has effected the industry.
  • What job seekers can learn from recruiters.
  • What is the most appropriate way for job seekers to market themselves to recruiters in their industry.
  • Anticipated accomplishments in 2012, both professionally and personally (Margo is a cyclist and couldn’t help asking me about my cycling goals)

If you have a question stemming from the podcast, leave a comment on this blog, and I’ll do my best to answer it.

  1. Do you also have a feeling that the employers got a bit spoiled and they are taking way too much liberty when dealing with job seekers. I think that the recession has spoiled them very much.

    • I think the recession has prompted some employers to be even more selective (with the notion that every job will have many applicants to choose from). In reality, this mindset is a constant. Employers will always search for the very best fit.
      Now if there are some that are taking “too much liberty,” the question becomes: Do you really want to work for them. There has to be a feeling of mutual respect when both parties decide to work together. There are still many good companies out there who appreciate how hard the process is and try to make candidates as comfortable as possible. That said, they will always be selective.
