Will We Ever Be Happy With Interviews? - The 10 Minute Talent Rant
We've discovered the perfect interview process.
After talking to thousands of job seekers, we've concluded it consists of 100% remote, 1:1 time with the C Suite, no tests, perfectly matched values, immediate feedback and massive offers. After 1 step.
Update: we regret to inform you the perfect interview process doesn't exist.
Bad sucks. But what about good? Can we even be happy with that either?
Jeff Smith and James Hornick reexamine what realistic interview process expectations look like in Episode 54 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "Will We Ever Be Happy With Interviews?"
Hirewell Data Insights: Hiring Trends Q4 2022 - Talent Insights
The hiring market may be down but it certainly isn’t dead. Some industries cooled while others are still piping hot.
And in-demand positions are changing too. Sales down, marketing up. TA down, HR up.
They don’t know what the Fed’s going to do next, but Matt Massucci and James Hornick covered the real numbers Hirewell’s seeing to understand how the inflation and rising interest rates have affected the hiring market so far in “Hirewell Data Insights: Hiring Trends Q4 2022".

How To Hire *gasp* Onsite - The 10 Minute Talent Rant
At Hirewell, we’re apologetic Team Remote homers. But that’s because it works for our business. It’s our preference.
We recognize that a lot of orgs can’t actually do full remote. For a variety of very valid reasons, which often go unacknowledged in the pro-remote, social media echo chamber.
Hiring onsite (or even hybrid) is unequivocally harder to do. But not impossible.
What are some of the keys to help you pull it off? Jeff Smith and James Hornick play the other side in episode 52 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "How To Hire *gasp* Onsite"
Will Gen Z Kill Bad Companies? - The 10 Minute Talent Rant
Turn back the clock a generation or two. How did you know a company was terrible to work for?
Word of mouth. It was slow and hard to get the word out. Toxic environments could stay below the radar. Little motivation to change.
Fast forward a bit. Social media and Glassdoor got people talking. Employee engagement, pay transparency, and work-life balance became mainstream issues. Companies took notice. They finally had to.
And now? The young generation is dunking on bad bosses to millions of people on TikTok. And it’s driving the work culture narrative. (Unless you somehow missed the whole ‘quiet quitting’ thing.)
Have we reached a critical mass? Will awful companies be forced to change or risk being unable to hire? Jeff Smith and James Hornick discuss in episode 51 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "Will Gen Z Kill Bad Companies?"
We’re Evaluating Talent Wrong - The 10 Minute Talent Rant
With age comes self-reflection (hopefully.) Those moments where you look back, ponder your existence, and question if you’d do anything differently.
If you’re thinking “you mean how we’ve been evaluating talent all these years?” we thought the same!
That goes for how we conduct interviews and how we manage teams. Everything from “bad” answers that really weren’t bad answers. To whether our KPIs really value results over time spent (or wasted?)
The 10 Minute Talent Rant turns 50 (episodes) this week so Jeff Smith and James Hornick are celebrating their show’s mid-life crisis with "We’re Evaluating Talent Wrong"
James is a beast
This is the only staffing/ recruitment related podcast I listen to. James is a wealth of knowledge and sarcasm.
Especially like his recurring guest shows with Nate Guggia.
