Guest post: Story of Winston

This LinkedIn stuff doesn’t work… Like Moses turned to see the burning bush, you may have “turned” what this “burning bush” post is all about. Please grab some popcorn. Earth has seen no fury than a frustrated graduate and you’ve been there, job hunting for months or some a year plus, then we can take

About recruitment and football

Last week we came across an interesting question on LinkedIn. David Wolstenholme, a personal brand builder for recruiters, asked ‘What football club best describes your recruitment agency and why?’  To which Nima, who when not recruiting top software graduates and junior developers,  is a semi-professional football player with UNSW, answered: ‘I guess I’d have to go

My first year as a recruiter- Michael Lai

Where to begin? It has been a hell of a year. We were at a friend’s place, it was just the typical Friday dinner, a small group of friends chatting and drinking, there was one person who stood out because unlike everyone else she was at her laptop, furiously typing away. I was surprised but

A tale of two recruiters- Richard Center

I had a bit of a “sliding doors” moment last week. Michael Lai, one of Mantech’s up-and-coming recruiters, placed a software engineer into a great tech company last week. The candidate in question turned out to be someone I placed in what was one of my first placements at Mantech almost 18 years ago. It

Follow Your Gut Feeling

You’ve worked hard all week, you’ve followed the process, but what does your gut feel say? What have I learned in the past year of Recruitment and dealing with candidates in specifics? It’s that building long enduring relationships of trust and transparency goes a long way as opposed to the invaluable transactional agreement of what
