“Predictive” recruitment – is it science fiction?

What if it were possible to uncover just the right person for a job, one that will be a high performer, who will blend into the team as if she had always been a part of it and who will not jump overboard just two years later? Even better: what if their profile would appear to us without having to dig through hundreds of CVs? Welcome to the world of “predictive recruitment”.

To thank or not to thank – That is the question

As an executive search consultant, I spend the majority of my day talking to people. After conducting countless interviews, I’ve begun to notice how shockingly low the thank-you rate is. Perhaps I shouldn’t be so taken aback, as yes, I’ve actively approached these candidates and yes, many of them are senior level executives – but perhaps these are just excuses. In my opinion, the thank-you note is a much more powerful tool than candidates and recruiters give it credit for.
