I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up (still don’t!), so I took the LSATs, went to law school and became an attorney. I quickly realized I would have been a great lawyer if it wasn’t for all that darned fine print!

PRIVACY! Being a recruiter requires acting with the utmost discretion

By David Reitman | May 17, 2019

Recently there has been a lot of talk in the news about privacy.  Facebook.  Cambridge Analytica. Will “Zukerberg” become a verb (you’ve been Zukerberged!)?    And those robocalls!  We moved from the East to the West coast, and each month I receive an average of 20-30 calls that use my old area code.  The “Do Not…

THE CONTRARIAN: Study suggests that “finding your passion” is bad career advice!

By David Reitman | May 17, 2019

As a legal and compliance recruiter for the financial services industry, I spend a lot of time on LinkedIn.  As a born contrarian, I like to challenge the conventional wisdom.  Let’s talk passion!!  Judging by the amount of it being expressed, one might conclude that the invention of work is the greatest thing since gluten-free…

PARTIAL DISCLOSURE! My patented (not really) proprietary process for placing professionals

By David Reitman | May 7, 2019

The first question people like to ask in social situations is “What do you do?”  I’m a headhunter.  “Huh?”  I operate an executive search firm.  “You mean you try to locate lost executives?”  I’m a recruiter.  “What’s that?”  Companies hire me to help them find qualified workers to fill jobs that they are having a…

State of the Disunion: Has the hiring process become dysfunctional?

By David Reitman | May 3, 2019

Some of us like to work with blinders on, to shut out the myriad distractions that present themselves to us in this age of (dis)information.  I know I’m not the only legal and compliance recruiter in the financial services sector, but I sometimes pretend I am, so that I don’t get off track and lose…

By David Reitman | April 19, 2019

So you find yourself with a role that needs filling.  Maybe someone quit with no notice and you need to find a new team member NOW, so you cobble together a job description on the fly.  Perhaps your company is in the midst of a slow, planned growth stage and you have lots of time…

Hiring Managers! Don’t let your mood get in the way (of attracting and hiring top talent)

By David Reitman | April 14, 2019

There are enough books, articles and seminars on all things business to fill Madison Square Garden several times over.  I recently read an article discussing the difference between TIME MANAGEMENT (apparently, after all these years, not the most productive way of going about your day) and ATTENTION MANAGEMENT (the sexy new paradigm that focuses on…

BREAKTHROUGH! The Power of Perseverance

By David Reitman | April 7, 2019

I love to work the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle.  It’s not the hardest of the week, that honor belongs to Saturday.  It is the biggest, though, and for years, it has been just enough of a challenge to keep me coming back for more.  Every now and then, I complete the puzzle in…

So You Want To Be An Astronaut?

By David Reitman | April 1, 2019

No matter what you do for a living, stress is a part of it.  Supermodel?  Try standing in high heels in an awkward position for hours at a time in the hot sun and glaring spotlights!  Astronaut?  Fugedaboudit!  Do I even have to list the negatives?  OK!  Zero gravity destroys your bone structure and makes…
