Networking as a Recruitment Tool

Maybe I’m deeply in the wrong with this one – but I have a feeling that today’s recruitment is mostly done from laptop/mobile phone! People look at people’s profiles (wherever), people call people for recommendations, people put ads online to find people… And of course – it’s logical, fast and cost efficient. We live busy lives with ever limiting resources. What can one good recruiter do? Become good in assessing people based on their CV’s and profiles. And maybe a couple of recommendations.

Happy New Niche!

In the meantime, I would say that the key of success is finding your own niche and taking advantage of a global digital marketplace. Because sometimes your niche might be too small if it’s only about one (small) market.

Career in Transition

I’m approaching 15th anniversary of my more or less successful career. I have changed four companies, six or seven different positions, had business trips in more than thirty countries, worked in nine markets, met thousands of interesting people and made some valuable friendships. Did my best for some amazing teams, changed jobs when I thought that I can’t or don’t want to contribute anymore. Some of those that I hired and coached as beginners already have big careers. So far so good.
