"I've always seen human resources as a strategic partner - the marketing department for a company's internal clients rather as administrative. During my 20+ years in the profession, I've earned a reputation for bringing business solutions to reality." Sharlyn Lauby

My guest today on this Talent Acquistion Channel of TotalPicture is Sharlyn Lauby, author of the blog HR Bartender and president of ITM Group Inc., a South Florida-based training and human resources consulting firm focused on working with companies to retain and engage talent. Her latest book, published by SHRM, is titled THE RECRUITER'S HANDBOOK A Complete Guide for Sourcing, Selecting, and Engaging the Best Talent.


Immigration and Hiring Skilled Workers, 2018


Two Contrasting Forces are Making it Almost Impossible to Recruit Skilled Workers: The Hyper-Competitive Job Market and the Trump Administration's Hardline Immigration Policies

Published on April 10 2018

The State Department has ended an Obama-era program to grant visas to foreign entrepreneurs who want to start companies in the United States. As anyone working in HR and recruiting will tell you, the Trump administration is more aggressively scrutinising visas to skilled workers from other countries. Additionally, Trump is contemplating ending a provision that allows spouses of those skilled workers to be employed in the US.

Welcome to a special Talent Acquisition Channel podcast on TotalPicture, I'm your host Peter Clayton. According to my guest, Nathalie Gottschalk, an immigration attorney based in Las Vegas, Facebook spends an average of $14,000 in net visa costs to prcess each new hire's H-1B visa.

April 2nd was the first day the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) accepted H-1B petitions for quota (cap) subject cases for FY (Fiscal Year) 2019, commencing October 1, 2018. Because demand for H-1B workers remains very high, the quota was likely filled in the first 5 business days of April. Last year, USCIS received over 230,000 H-1B applications for 65,000 slots.

If you're trying to recruit highly skilled talent for a SMB, it's hard to compete with Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and other large organizations for the increasingly difficult and costly process competing for H-1B visas.

According to Nathalie, there are lower-cost alternatives to the H-1B lottery SMB companies can use to recruit the skilled talent they desperately need to grow their organizations, and can't find.

Are you trying to source passive candidates with cookie-cutter, generic solutions? Good luck with that!

Welcome to a Talent Acquisition Channel Podcast I'm your host Peter Clayton. Today I'm excited to be speaking with Angie Verros, a brilliant talent acquisition tactician. Angie has worked on every side of recruiting - from agency, to third party to contract to corporate - she's been there and done that. Armed with a marketing degree, she started her career as a rookie stock broker in New York City, so she knows a thing (or ten) about cold-calling and rejection!

Angie and I have been following each other around the country at various conferences this year, the latest being HR Tech World in San Francisco. Angie is based in Chicago, and very active in a number of organizations, including ATAP, (The Association For Talent Acquisition Professionals), where she is the community manager for ATAP's Facebook page.

Angie is the founder of vaia talent and former talent acquisition leader at high growth organizations in the Chicago metro area. As you'll hear in our conversation, she's a passionate, strategic and innovative talent acquisition leader, with a unique combination of successful recruiting leadership, coupled with talent brand and operations experience.

Angie consults with a number of organizations including Proactive Talent Strategies, (founded by our friend Will Staney), and will be back in San Francisco this September, speaking at HireCONF.
