hiring a superstar is easy - have a conversation with your recruiter

What does a typical conversation with a recruiter usually sound like to you? A couple of days ago I was having a conversation with a potential new client who was looking to hire following the exit of a long term employee. They had since hired someone else but that had unfortunately not worked out. In pursuit of a better hire the Director had gone out to their own personal network with no joy; candidates were not hungry enough, too stuck in their ways, and had unrealistic expectations. What he wanted was someone who was still improving in their abilities, driven, hungry, motivated to open new doors, open-minded to new ideas and able to learn yet have significant experience selling...

diversity in tech

It’s the 21st century, so you’d expect that all workplaces are fully diverse, especially so in the tech industry where big tech firms Apple, Google, and Facebook have mantras such as “diversity makes us stronger” and are actively opposing the recent US ‘travel ban’. Such statements by tech giants should be a continuation of their track record of diversity, however, the harsh reality is that on self-reflection the American tech industry is still mostly ‘a bastion of white, male privilege’.
