How Recruiters Can Close More Candidates

"Its all recruiting" is a podcast about recruitment strategy. It is produced by Jim Stroud.

For a sourcer, the biggest thrill is finding “purple squirrels,” those passive candidate that are very, very hard to find. For recruiters, the biggest thrill is closing those purple squirrels and seeing them onboarded into the company. I want to talk about closing candidates and the Christmas holiday season next on “Its all recruiting.” // In this podcast I cite the article “12 Ways Corporations Are Secretly Manipulating Your Emotions” // Special thanks to our sponsor Randstad Sourceright // Connect with Jim Stroud on LinkedIn

Is Amazon getting into the recruiting business?


The online retailer Amazon.com has a new offering called “Amazon Local Services” which connects customers with local appliance installers like plumbers and electricians. I speculate that Amazon will enter the recruiting business and compete with sites like eLance.com, oDesk, Guru.com and others like them. This podcast is a rebranding of my previous podcast – The Social Recruiter. Please subscribe now. More goodness being planned for 2015. You can also connect with me via Twitter (@jimstroud) and on LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/in/jimstroud). // Special thanks to my sponsor Randstad Sourceright!

Randstad Sourceright Sourcing Leaders Discuss Trends In Sourcing

Jim Stroud - Sr. Director at Randstad Sourceright

Guess who was featured in a video featuring Randstad Sourceright sourcing leaders? Me! Yay! So excited! Check it out as well as interviews from people much smarter, better looking and more talented than me (okay, now I’m getting depressed) at the recent #SOSUEU conference in Amsterdam. Pass it on…

What did you think of the video? Let me know in the comments below. By the way, all autographs are $19.95!

(Some time later…)

All autographs are now half-price at $9.95 each.

(Later still…)

Now giving away autographs for a limited time!

(and even later…)

For a limited time only, now paying people to take my autograph. Operators are standing by.
