Some Recruiter I Used to Know

IACPR Closing Session. The Elephant in the Room: Is Executive Recruiting Moving In-House? Can Search Firms Survive?

David Lord, TotalPicture Radio IACPR Conference interviewDavid Lord

Some Recruiter I Used To Know:
Now and then I think of when you first called my number
And when you said you had a job that I should try
Asked myself if you were right for me
But you said that we should have coffee
And from that day you showered me with lots of attention
(Parody YouTube video)

David Lord led the closing session at the IACPR Spring Conference - a lively "open mic" discussion with the executive recruiters and HR leaders in the room titled "Banishing the Elephants in the Room." David started by directing our attention to a YouTube parody music video (based on Gotye 'Somebody I Use To Know') changed to Some Recruiter I Used to Know -- the story of a young lawyer pursued by a headhunter (see the link in the sidebar). An entertaining reflection of the perception many people have of recruiters. Elephant #1 at the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia - the trend toward moving executive recruiting in-house. This trend is real, as recently reported in the Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek, in an article titled; "These days Anybody can Headhunt." Really?

David Lord is a leading independent authority on the selection and engagement of executive search consultants and on how large organizations can best manage their executive recruiting activity. David has been independently tracking the performance of executive search consultants for more than 20 years, first as a journalist and since 1995 as a consultant to large corporations on the selection and engagement of search firms.Today, David facilitates the Executive Search Information Exchange, a research and discussion group for heads of executive recruiting from more than 50 leading corporations. He is also the founder and facilitator of the Executive Search Academy, a two-day course in best practices held twice a year in New York for corporate executive recruiting professionals.
