What readers Have to Say
We apologize for the length, some people had a lot to say:
Facts I have learned from being in the U.S. Army, corporate America, running a niche recruiting firm, and life are:
Fact 1: Every organization says, “We have a hiring process.”
Fact 2: Everyone’s success is dependent upon those around him/her.
Fact 3: People are hired for skills and fired for attitude (not a cultural or team fit).
Fact 4: And we all have made mis-hires! In the military, we have “field manuals” – comprehensive reference manuals covering the exact “how to” of best-practice core concepts.
This is your “hiring great people” field manual for winning the war on talent. David Perry and Mark Haluska distill 30+ years of experience into a jam-packed, easy to read manual that needs to reside as an icon on the computer (or sit on the corner of every desk) of anyone involved in hiring. Competition for top talent is tough and getting tougher.
This book a true gem. David is a peak performer with the ability to deconstruct his own success formula and put it into a systematic process that anyone can follow. I regularly interview the top 10% in the field for my program and David would be at the top of the list in terms of innovation and cutting edge strategies.
If you're in the executive search field, or hope to be, this book is a must.
My goal in reading this was to better discover strategies for connecting with such leaders. Who else would better know than the people who hire them? The real audience includes HR professionals whose job it is to find leaders. C-suite and related people.
David Perry, the author separates them from the easy-to-find candidate who is actively looking, and the best candidates. That is, the best candidates are already working.
While Perry defines executive recruiting for the reader, I think he presumes you are actually in the role and want to be better. A beginner will benefit but so will the veteran.
I learned what I hoped to learn, and, more importantly, I think recruiters will benefit tremendously from "Executive Recruiting for Dummies" by David E Perry. I fully recommend it.
As a reader of the manuscript, I can attest to the fact that this book is full of invaluable information to:
1) Do Executive Recruiting yourself;
2) Work with Executive Recruiters. What you will see is that Executive Search is a disciplined activity that requires a good system, smarts and patience.
I especially liked the Recruiting section of the book. In it, David highlights the difference between active and passive candidates and why passive candidates are harder to recruit yet often a better find.
You will be an Executive Recruiting dummy no longer by reading this book!
