Author: Susan Chance

While more and more companies are conducting background checks and drug screening, there are still many employers who don’t want to spend the money it takes to complete a thorough background check.  Penny wise, pound foolish is an old British saying that means to be extremely careful about small amounts of money and not careful enough about larger amounts of money.  Failing to complete a full background check on new employees may be a pound foolish decision especially when...

Four Ways to Successfully Recruit Passive Candidates

Author: Anonym

A well-used maxim in hiring circles holds that “the best talent is already working.”  While the validity of this adage certainly depends on a number of factors, it speaks to the notion that people who are currently employed are somehow more desirable as job candidates than those who are not.  While they are more desirable candidates, they are also less attainable.  Candidates who are working are often in a position to be more selective about potential job...
