How to increase your chances of getting a role through an agency

I want to let you into a little recruiter’s secret. Not all candidates were created equal.  We will go out of our way for some people.I know what you’re probably thinking: we’ll only have time for you if we can see easy money in it. And there may be some truth in that. We do like to eat (some of us like to eat very well) and when a candidate is an easy placement we will shower them with attention. But that’s not the whole picture - not by a long way. Because these days finding a job and a…See More

Has LinkedIn made the CV obsolete?

These days many candidates ask me if they should even bother with a CV. Surely it’s enough just to flick an employer or recruiter an email with a link to their LinkedIn profile?While it might be tempting to go without a CV, I’d never recommend it.Why LinkedIn doesn’t do the same thing as a CVSay you’re applying for a job online - maybe through LinkedIn itself. So why wouldn’t you just save time and hassle and link to what you’ve already put out there? Well, for starters, I don’t think your…See More

Why Australia's not part of Asia when it comes to HR

When it comes to business, Australians are often encouraged to think of themselves as part of the Asia-Pacific, and many global businesses take the same approach. They choose just one centre for the whole of the region - sometimes Sydney or Melbourne, but more often Hong Kong or Singapore - and in it they place almost all senior decision makers, including the highest ranking HR professionals.  I’ve placed people around the world and all I can say is that I think these global businesses are…See More

Who'd you hire? Clinton or Trump?

Here's a hypothetical for you: two Presidential candidates walk into the interview room for a job in a Sydney HR department. (At separate times, of course, we’re way past group assessments, especially for senior roles.) They present very differently, they communicate very differently and they promise to take your organisation down very different paths indeed.*The question is, who gets the job? Do you back the steadiness and poise of Ms Clinton? Or does the promise of excitement and…See More

Why HR Professionals Don't Interview Well

You’d be excused for thinking that HR professionals would be expert interviewees. After all, isn’t a big part of their job supposed to be hiring people? Shouldn’t they know the questions that they’re going to be asked and the model responses to shoot back? And won’t they have a reasonable idea of exactly what a prospective employer is looking for and how to present themselves and their skills in the best possible light?That’s not my experience. In fact, sometimes the reverse is true. When it…See More
