Top 50 C-Level Sales Professionals in Boston

Top 50 C-Level Sales Professionals in Boston

Boston. One of my absolute favourite cities in the USA.

What comes to mind when you think of Beantown? Is it The Red Sox? The Boston Tea Party? Faneuil Hall? Harvard? Good Will Hunting? Or perhaps it’s “Cheers” … where everybody knows your name!

Over the last few months we’ve shone the spotlight on several US cities. Not to promote them as a tourist destination but to highlight some of the country’s best talent.

For example, maybe you’ve got your eye set on one of the Top 50 C-Level Marketing Professionals in Seattle, the Top 50 Female Full Stack Developers in New York City, the Top 50 Female Front-End Engineers in San Francisco, the Top 50 Female UI/UX Designers in Austin, Texas, or the Top 50 Hadoop Developers in the Bay Area.

Today it’s Boston. One of the oldest cities in the USA, the largest in New England, and home to some very talented C-Level Sales Professionals.

Wherever you believe your ideal candidate might be ‘hiding’, at RecruitLoop, we’ve created a very specific sourcing algorithm and process to help you find them, anywhere in the world. We call it Sourcing as a Service. Sourcing is the process of identifying the specific characteristics of your ideal candidate, then finding as many people who meet that criteria as possible.

Here are the Top 50 C-Level Sales Professionals in Boston for your perusal based on their experience, qualifications and digital footprint. Read More…

10 Ways Having Happy Employees Can Increase Productivity

10 Ways Having Happy Employees Can Increase Profit

We all know that we seem to have more energy, are less stressed, more creative, more helpful to others and achieve more when we are happy. Yet when it comes to workplaces, the same ‘formula’ often doesn’t appear to apply. While keeping customers and clients happy has been a focus of business success for years, ensuring employee happiness has not always been such a priority.

But if we are more energised, more creative and get more stuff done when we are happy and companies want to be more productive and profitable, it follows that having happy and engaged employees is something every employer should strive for.

The growing body of research around employee engagement and the link to profitability is irrefutable – happy employees mean improved productivity and increased profits. Whether we look at entrepreneurial startups or large, established enterprises, the same holds true: People are more productive and creative when they have more positive emotions.

Positive and happy people are not only more likely to come up with a new idea or solve a complex problem that same day, but also do so the next day.

Creating a workplace filled with happy people isn’t as difficult as you might think. And it isn’t about salary increases.

In fact, research confirms that salary is never the primary reason people leave jobs – they leave jobs first and foremost because they feel under-valued or unappreciated. They feel their contribution is not valued.

This is not to say that an appropriate salary is not an important component of recognition – it is. It’s just not the most important component.

Here are 10 things you can do immediately to change the happiness level in your employees and improve your bottom line. Read More…

Top 50 Hadoop Developers In The Bay Area

Top 50 Hadoop Developers In The Bay Area

Here’s a spot quiz for anyone reading this post. What is Hadoop?

Actually let’s make it a bit easier for you. We’ll make it multiple choice!

Is Hadoop …

  1. A character in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book?
  2. A newly discovered superfood related to the acai berry?
  3. An open-source software framework for storing data and running applications on clusters of commodity hardware? or
  4. Can I please phone a friend?

To be honest, when I first heard one of our clients refer to Hadoop several months ago, I had to ask for clarification too.

When a company has a very specific type of candidate in mind, it influences every step of their hiring process. One of the most important steps happens at the very beginning, and it’s called sourcing – an area we know quite a bit about.

Sourcing is the process of identifying the specific characteristics of your ideal candidate, then finding as many people who meet that criteria as possible.

For example, maybe you’ve got your eye set on one of the Top 50 C-Level Marketing Professionals in Seattle, the Top 50 Female Full Stack Developers in New York City, the Top 50 Female Front-End Engineers in San Francisco or the Top 50 Female UI/UX Designers in Austin, Texas.

Wherever you truly believe your ideal candidate might be ‘hiding’, at RecruitLoop, we’ve created a very specific sourcing algorithm and process to help you find them, anywhere in the world. We call it Sourcing as a Service.

Now let’s say hypothetically you were looking for one of the Top 50 Hadoop Developers in the Bay Area.

Well it just so happens that you’ve come to the right place. Here are they for your perusal based on their experience, qualifications and digital footprint.

Top 50 Female C-Level Marketing Professionals in Seattle

Top 50 Female C-Level Marketing Professionals in Seattle

Last week we celebrated International Women’s Day to recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women all over the world.

Over the last few months, we’ve shone the spotlight on several groups of awesome women for their amazing contribution to ‘all things tech’. We set out to do this intentionally given that the low representation of women in the tech sector was one of the biggest issues of 2015.

We’ve shared the Top 50 Female Front-End Engineers in San Francisco, the Top 50 Female Full Stack Developers in New York City, and most recently the Top 50 Female UI/UX Designers in Austin, Texas.

In today’s post we’re heading to the Pacific Northwest, to one of my personal favourite cities in the USA – Seattle Washington – to showcase the city’s Top 50 Female C-Level Marketing Professionals.

When you think of Seattle, you probably think of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Grey’s Anatomy, and Starbucks.

What you may not know is that despite its reputation for being a rainy city, Seattle actually receives less rainfall than New York and Chicago!

There are also some incredibly talented and highly successful female marketing professionals working in the city overlooking the spectacular Puget Sound. Check out the list below. Read More…

6 Ways to Ensure Your Candidate Turns Down Your Job Offer

Sometimes getting your candidate across the line (and then to sign on the dotted line) isn’t as easy as you might think or hope.

After all, just because you believe you have identified the perfect candidate, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the candidate feels they have found the perfect employer. Read More…

10 Tools for Sourcing Candidates by the Hundreds

10 Tools for Sourcing Candidates by the Hundreds

Recruiters today are expected to be equal parts hunter and gatherer — to find unfindable talent and bring them “home” to an organization that fits.

While much of modern recruiting still happens in more traditional ways (calling, emailing, and other forms of personal outreach). Independent and agile recruiters are finding new ways to use technology to source candidates where they hang out online, track their communications, and vet potential hires.

How to Get Super Stars to Work Effectively in a Team

Editor’s Note: Guest post by Micheal GilmoreMicheal is a blogger and team-building coach. He’s psyched about marketing, business, blogging, SMM and building fantastic teams. When not doing that he’s writing for ResumesplanetHis opinions are his own.

One of the goals every single company or business strives towards is to put together an all-star team, gathering all of the best professionals from several disciplines, and having them achieve amazing things. However, while that approach has many merits, it’s not exactly perfect. Super star employees which are the best at what they do often have a hard time collaborating with one another. Read More…

Why sourcing needs to be a key part of your recruitment strategy

Why Sourcing Needs to be Key to Your Recruitment Strategy

Do you know the difference between sourcing and recruiting?

While the concept of actually finding people has become much easier in recent years, finding the right people has become increasingly more challenging. Finding all of them is even harder. As such, knowing how to effectively source talent is now more important than ever before.

Today the recruiting landscape is fundamentally different and yet everyone still wants to find that needle in the haystack. There is a massive talent shortage which makes sourcing even more critical. Read More…
