    Dumb Hiring Ideas Are Back, Baby! - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    Dumb Hiring Ideas Are Back, Baby! - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    The hiring market is improving, slowly but surely. It’s not going to the moon like Bitcoin, but it’ll get there.
     
    Hiring needs create urgency. Urgency creates shortcuts. And shortcuts create every bad stereotype people have about recruiting.

    What happens when scaling up becomes a hair-on-fire drill? And you didn’t spend your down time fine tuning your strategy and processes? Jeff Smith and James Hornick covered it in episode 83 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "Dumb Hiring Ideas Are Back, Baby!"

    The Unique Sh*tstorm For Young Professionals - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    The Unique Sh*tstorm For Young Professionals - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    Remote on-the-job learning is hard. College loans are astronomically expensive. And no one knows what skills AI will make irrelevant (if any.)
     
    Change is constant. But a lot of it at once is a lot to take in. Especially those just beginning their careers.

    Jeff Smith and James Hornick aren’t going to play generational favorites but they are going to point out the obvious in episode 82 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "The Unique Sh*tstorm For Young Professionals"

    Remember Employer Brand? It's Dead. - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    Remember Employer Brand? It's Dead. - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    The tech layoffs aren’t over. Marketing budgets haven’t recovered. DEI programs are slashed. 
     
    Might explain why we don’t hear anyone talk about employer brand anymore. It’s probably for the better: workers are skeptical. A lot of people got burned in the last 18 months and no one believes the old corporate jargon when they’re looking for their next role.
     
    Hiring isn’t dead, but the talent attraction playbook needs a reboot. Jeff Smith and James Hornick discuss what resonates with job seekers and what falls flat in episode 81 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "Remember Employer Brand? It's Dead."

    Do Bonuses Buy Loyalty - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    Do Bonuses Buy Loyalty - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    It’s January. Which means we’re in the lame duck period for year end bonuses. Earned but not yet paid.
     
    With that comes complications. Some companies are bracing for post-bonus churn. Others are offering sign-on bonuses to jump the line and get the talent they need now.
     
    And of course, some companies were beat up so bad in 2023 that bonuses went out the window. There’s the Haves and the Have-Nots.
     
    Meanwhile, the real question: how effective is the yearly bonus model for retention anyway?

    Jeff Smith and James Hornick kick off the new year with episode 80 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "Do Bonuses Buy Loyalty?"

    How High Interest Rates Tanked Recruiting - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    How High Interest Rates Tanked Recruiting - The 10 Minute Talent Rant

    For most of Hirewell’s existence, internal recruiter positions were the #2 most commonly filled roles on a yearly basis. Right after software engineers.
     
    In 2023? Not even on the heat map. Almost no demand. And lots of A+ recruiters have struggled to find work.
     
    Why? Rising interest rates. 

    Jeff Smith and James Hornick put on their nerd hats and explain how the macroeconomic environment affects hiring in a very real way in episode 79 of The 10 Minute Talent Rant, "How High Interest Rates Tanked Recruiting"

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.
