Seeing the world through their eyes

Guess what I did today? Yes....! I went to see Dora the Explorer with my little girl. Damn it was fun. Not so much the show, but watching it through my daughter's eyes. I spent the majority of the first act watching my daughter's face. Her unbridled enthusiasm and joy, just warmed my heart and basically tatooed a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

You have to do it... see the world through the eye's of a child, it's magnificent. The colours are brighter, the people are bigger, and life is that little bit simplier.

Looking into things a little further, the same thing needs to be translated into Recruiting.

Look at your ads, your process, our candidate care through the candidates eyes. The world may look different. If you're a third party Recruiter, look at the world through your client's eyes. Is what you're doing adding value to them or to you? Will sending that unsolicited email with a hail mary of a candidate enhance your reputation in their eyes? Will that cold call with "you got any jobs I can help with?" really help them out? Think about it... Before you call, email, tweet, IM, Inmail or whatever else it is you may do to your clients. Look at the world through their eyes...
