As Spring is just around the corner, it is a great time to clean and refresh. Consider applying that concept to your online professional profiles with an update to all of your social media platforms. As the economy improves, hiring activity is increasing and is expected to really accelerate, especially in the second quarter. In a competitive job market, it’s important to stand out amongst your peers. A good way to catch a hiring authority’s eye is with a strong profile on LinkedIn. Strong LinkedIn Profiles are significantly enhanced with recommendations (more so than endorsements!). Incomplete profiles or leaving off blocks of time will not get you the same attention as those profiles that are showing effort and attention to detail. Even if you are not actively looking for a new role, your professional presence can yield a conversation about an opportunity that can intrigue. Recruiters are constantly searching for talented individuals in their field, so demonstrate your contributions by detailing the ways you’ve added value, where you have gained applicable experience, and how you have delivered on leadership, team building and mentoring opportunities. In addition to updating your LinkedIn profile, also take the time to review the rest of... Continue reading

Every owner, CEO, President or hiring manager often has a problem to solve. The need could be the result of Covid layoffs, retirement, building bench strength, budgeted growth plans, replacing an under performing team member or one that has moved on. Regardless, the position needs to be filled as quickly as possible, by a candidate who is a professional fit for the role, and equally important, one who is a strong cultural fit for your organization. You need them to flourish on and with your team. Sure, you can post your open position on job boards and receive hundreds of applicants and perhaps a handful will work in the industry. Nevertheless, most will not be qualified for your role and they will have no specific industry experience. Perhaps a handful will have worked in the industry but aren’t qualified for your role. You will spend countless hours (which translates into wasted time and money) sorting through resumes and talking to people who cannot solve your problem. If you are lucky, you may get one that you can hire. Are you seeking to ‘get lucky’ in filling this crucial need? Is that a result worth the amount of time spent? A... Continue reading

If you’re considering hiring new staff in this Q1, chances are that you’ve determined very specifically those skills which will deliver the most return, quickest. The days of just “hiring” employees are diminishing. As modern marketing becomes more and more complex, it’s essential to hire the correct experienced skillset, that will increase or enhance your existing capabilities. Were you forced to layoff HR and/or recruiting staff in 2020? Many employers simply couldn’t afford the luxury of non-revenue producing positions, no matter how important they were considered. If you post a job online today, will you have the experienced staff necessary to efficiently assess the quality of the applicants and respond promptly? Bishop Partners is here to support your recruiting efforts. Whether you want local, regional or remote workers, our database of thousands of marketers of every discipline delivers referrals (if not candidates) surprisingly quickly. Our 35+ years in marketing and 20+ recruiting marketers of all disciplines, uniquely positions us to help your hiring managers identify specifically those traits and skills most critical . . . and do it very quickly. As a result of Covid created Client need, I have “unbundled” the recruiting services. You post the position, I’ll screen... Continue reading

While 2020 has delivered unexpected and incredibly challenging issues, it has also shown that we’re stronger and more resilient that we might have imagined. Thanksgiving is the time to take time and reflect on all that we have to be Thankful for. I’ve renewed my thanks that I’m living the life that I’m living, challenges notwithstanding. • I’m thankful for Barbara, the love of my life and constant companion (especially during quarantine).

Are you posting jobs and being overwhelmed with applicants? No staff or time to properly identify and screen the best applicants? You’re not alone . . . We can help! I know from recent conversations that many employers are not “waiting patiently” for Covid to become more “under control”. They are realizing that the past four months have forever changed the way business will be conducted. Employment for the future has radically changed, almost overnight! Highly specialized digital marketing “specialists” remain elusive, yet in constant in demand. They’re difficult to identify, recruit and hire, even if you’re willing to let them work remotely. Maybe you’re receiving “unsolicited” resumes. Do they just get “filed” or added to a database somewhere? Does anyone in HR have the time or expertise to screen them and determine if there might be an exceptionally talented or skilled pro who wants to work for your company? What if it’s a skill you really need . . . but you don't respond? Client demand has helped us re-imagine new ways to support Employers’ Talent Acquisition and hiring needs. We’ve rolled out different ways for Clients to deal with the cost of recruiting search, by spreading payments over... Continue reading

July 1 was the 19th Anniversary of Bishop Partners and my becoming an Executive Recruiter! This past year was both the best and the worst in some ways. It was the best professionally and personally, but Covid-19 has obviously had unbelievable impact on all of our lives and jobs. Fortunately, this past year has been professionally excellent. I was worried that people (Clients especially) would think that my move to Florida, meant that I was retiring. Not even close! Fortunately, Barbara’s and my move for personal reasons has had little impact on my business. I’ve survived past recessions, terror attacks and social unrest. My experience and national reputation continues to be a strong foundation for Bishop Partners’ ongoing success. I’m thankful! I want to thank all of you who have contributed to our success over these past 19 years. I wouldn’t still be here without your support, your positive feedback and your referrals . . . to both colleagues (Candidates) and Employers (Clients). Thank you! Even though I had two searches cancelled at the offer stage in early April, I’ve been pretty busy. I have new Clients in St. Louis, Austin, Ft. Lauderdale and Las Vegas. That reputation (and maybe...

This is the perfect time to enhance your talent pipeline! The situation caused by Covid-19, is unlike any other economic slowdown in history. It’s not driven by economics, but by biology. Just like SARS, or MERS or H1N1, this pandemic will end. We’re seeing encouraging signs of employment and the stock market rebounding. Even NYC has taken the first steps of “opening up”. There’s a cautious optimism about our economy. Executive leadership teams are having strategic conversations about what to do as their business picks back up. Every furloughed worker will not be brought back. This is an opportunity to re-position, refine and “topgrade” those critical roles that will help bring your brand or company back and lead it into the future. ‘Bringing back’ is just the start. Creating meaningful strategy and innovations based on what will be a new reality, is essential for brand survival and growth. This is the time to scrutinize, refine and enhance your team for maximum efficiency and productivity. Candidates have never been more accessible. They thought their employers had a very positive feeling about them. Many believed themselves to be ‘indispensable’. Many were absolutely stunned and angry, after having been furloughed or laid off.... Continue reading

I wanted to send a note of support and optimism, as business has stopped, literally overnight . . . we’re here to help you. I agree with those marketing prognosticators and many of our Clients, who suggest that once this virus is under control and we approach ‘normalcy’, business and demand for marketing will explode with the pent-up demand that will have been simmering for months. Jobs will return to support that demand. Whether laid-off or furloughed employees wait for their former employer to hire them back is an open question. There will be new, better opportunities. There are CEOs and Managing Partners all over, who are wondering “What will we do to staff properly for the future”. The most experienced executives are creating contingency plans, in case “their” employees have found a better opportunity. The most sought after, data driven skillsets have changed and will be in high demand. Opportunities will abound! Brands will be hiring! I want you to know that I’m not just here for you when times are great! We’re not going anywhere. I continue to value our relationship. I’ve got your back.

American’s (and the World) are discovering we’re all much more vulnerable to the unforeseen, in ways we couldn’t have imagined even one month ago. Our lives have all been flipped, literally overnight. We don’t have control of what’s going to happen, no matter how much we try. At this point in time, we’re all vulnerable, we’re worried and in need of support. Your personal assessments of it all, will determine to what degree you're worried. I think COVID-19 will be defeated and result in disruptive, but positive innovation and change, in all sorts of areas. Already, the most obvious example is working from home. Too many employers have ignored what could be a part of the solution to their staffing issues and resisted allowing working from home. Necessity is now delivering new ideas of how to interact online and not only with work. Many of these strategies are going to live on and evolve into ubiquitous tools for the future. Right now, online interaction is actually supporting our being closer to each other. While there’s personal “social distancing”, there’s more positive, personal interaction online. There’s also a trend of more empathy and support and less social discord, like bullying. We’re... Continue reading

This is a time of banding together, understanding others’ circumstances and treating everyone with respect. Looking for a job and applying for a job are anxiety provoking issues . . . especially if someone finds themselves in the position of currently being without work and any source of income. There’s no more insecure feeling . . . Imagine how that anxiety is being compounded every hour of every day right now, as we hear more and more uncertainty about COVID-19. Social media is amplifying this pandemic and making wildly irresponsible predictions and projections about what could happen. Broadcast news is more measured, but endless . . . More anxiety provoking . . . Job seekers are understandably freaking out! I currently have candidates in front of several Clients for new career opportunities. All of the candidates have received positive feedback on their initial conversations with those Clients. Now, after two weeks, we’re still waiting to hear what might be next. I understand that nobody really knows what’s next or how to plan for that uncertainty. Nonetheless, I’d like employers to step up and do a much better job of communicating with their pending candidates. Yes, their candidates, they’re not someone... Continue reading

Business owners, principals and leaders want to know how the best executive recruiters sustain employer culture If you Google “Company Culture”, in 0.67 seconds, you’re overwhelmed by 127,000,000 results. There’s an incredible amount of interest in company culture, because it’s perceived as the foundation for everything from employee stability, to corporate growth, profitability and sustainability. Most will agree that a Company’s culture is fundamental to the success or failure of that company, by any measure. There are an incredible number of “measures” of a culture. Some say there are four types, some say eight and some say 10! There’s no one right answer. The question is really, do you know how to add those ingredients (both tools and people) which will support, then improve your culture? Do you know what and who not to add to that culture? The knowledge of both is absolutely critical! Couple that with the skilled talent shortage and you can see why recruiters are in demand. “Post and Pray”, isn’t working any better than ever and certainly fails when viewed through the lens of culture.

Last week, I was interviewed by Jack Kelly, for an article in Forbes. I was impressed with Jack's thinking and some of the subjects of his articles and/or blog. Here's one of those articles, I thought especially on target and likely of interest to many . . . We are living in a fast-paced, unstable time period where things change swiftly and dramatically. The corporate world is more dynamic and chaotic than ever. In our parents’ or grandparents’ generations, they would accept a job and hold onto it throughout the entire duration of their careers. However, those days are over and done with. The advancement of technology, globalization and the corporate view that employees are disposable have all changed the game. We can no longer view our careers as safe and sacrosanct. You can be sitting in your office chair this morning, happy and satisfied. Then, two weeks later, there’s a corporate-wide reorganization and you’re shown the door. You can be replaced by technology or a less-experienced, lower-cost employee. Your job could be moved to another country or your role could be deemed no longer relevant or required. The only constant is change. It's critically important to start a plan... Continue reading

The "Most Placeable Candidate" (MPC) is a term used in the recruiting industry to describe a candidate that the recruiter is willing to represent into a market, because the recruiter believes that (s)he can succeed in placing that candidate with a Company. I think that term should really be, “Most Valuable Candidate” (MVC). It’s not about the Recruiter succeeding, it’s about the recruiter helping his Client succeed, by delivering value. Clients aren’t stupid. If they believe that a candidate can add enough value to their team, they’ll hire that person. It’s not about making it easy for the recruiter . . . ! Because of my marketing and digital media specialty, I’m in an excellent position to know my Clients and the regional community. I have a good idea of the sorts of candidates that could add substantial value to their company. My specializing also results in being well known nationally, in the industry that I serve.
