GDPR Email Notifications from NPAmarketplace

Posted by NPAworldwide Headquarters on Jun 28, 2022
story thumbnail

You may have noticed a new email notification from NPAmarketplace beginning late last week related to members who have downloaded your candidate(s). This is an expanded feature that was previously deployed in Matchmaker to comply with GDPR. GDPR is a sweeping privacy regulation in the European Union that was implemented in 2018. Job seekers (and other individuals) in the EU have a legal right to know who has “control” or possession of their personal data, and to have that personal data deleted upon request. Anyone who works with a job seeker living in the EU must comply with the GDPR requirements. You can learn more about your obligations under the GDPR here: https://gdpr.eu/compliance-checklist-us-companies/

The Essence of NPA, in Europe

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on Jun 23, 2022

The Essence of NPA, a phrase I plan to popularize this year, runs straight and true in Europe. Earlier this month, members from NPA in Europe, the US and LATAM got together in Barcelona, Spain in person
for the first time in over two years. Connection Barcelona was a big success! Best practices and thought leadership were shared amongst the attendees and great speakers. More importantly, old friendships were renewed and new friendships were made.

Feedback Matters!

Posted by Pam Robison on Jun 08, 2022

My sweet father-in-law has been in and out of the hospital for the last three months. I can tell you for sure that not all facilities are equal, nor are all service providers. Along the way, I've given shoutouts to some caregivers and some not-so-pleasant corrective suggestions to others. At times our family has been very frustrated and at others, we've been exceedingly pleased. Being fully engaged with his service providers has proved invaluable to his quality of care and overall satisfaction.

Auto-Deletion of Inactive Recruiter Accounts

Posted by Veronica Blatt on May 26, 2022
story thumbnail

Quick reminder to all owners and recruiters: about a year ago we began implementing some new security measures to reduce the number of inactive accounts on our sites, especially NPAmarketplace. If a recruiter fails to log in to NPAcentral for more than 180 days after their account was created, the account will be automatically deleted. This will also trigger deletions from NPAmarketplace. We have been handling this manually for quite a long time, but now have the ability to streamline this task.

NPA Job Board: Your Contingent Partner in Placement

Posted by Dave Nerz on May 26, 2022
story thumbnail

Finding talent is difficult. Speed to close on open positions is becoming extended. Some jobs are just not built to split…low fees, too many competitors, or strange one-off situations make it difficult to get support from your NPAworldwide partners. The NPA Job Board is a great option for these situations. We discourage the use of the NPA Job Board where you have partners investing time to source candidates. Please don’t waste your NPA partners' time.

Small Gatherings and the Essence of NPAworldwide

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on May 26, 2022
story thumbnail

The Essence of NPA—I hope to popularize the phrase over the next few months. This endearing phrase came out of our recent Global Conference in Texas by way of my dear friend and  Chairman’s Award Recipient, Laura Schmieder. As I mentioned in a recent Chairman’s Corner, the Essence of NPA is the people. And one of the most efficient ways to get to know your fellow members are at small informal get-togethers. A lot can be discussed over a cup of coffee, lunch, drink after work or even stopping by a member’s office.

Non-Traditional Fee Splits

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on May 12, 2022
story thumbnail

About a month ago, I received a call from a member who has been with NPAworldwide for a couple of years and in the industry for about ten years. The member explained to me that she had two great sales roles, competitively priced, yet she was getting very little NPAworldwide candidate-side (CS) submissions. After further discussion, I learned that although this position was with a long-time client, the member had no sales placement experience. The member took on the search with the hope of closing it with NPA CS help. Great strategy!! This is why we are in NPAworldwide.

NPAmarketplace & NPAworldwide Basics

The backbone of NPAworldwide is and will always be its members and recruiters, as well as the staff who help us all work effectively and efficiently. Building relationships leads to information exchange as well as split placements. HOW do you find your potential trading partners and industry experts? 

Every new member and recruiter is trained in using NPAmarketplace and NPA Central to find potential trading partners…as well as attending meetings and Practice Group calls. They don’t know anyone in NPAworldwide so they absolutely depend on our tools, whether it's finding out when meetings or trading calls or webinars might be OR seeing jobs and candidates OR finding out who are the specialists.

Setting the Default Currency in NPAmarketplace

story thumbnail

Did you know you can set a default currency in NPAmarketplace? The default for all users is USD, but you can customize the salary to automatically apply a different currency standard to all of your posted candidate and job records. So Australian members who typically work with Australian candidates and Australian jobs, can set the default to Australian dollars. Those in Europe can change the default to euros.

Zooming Your Browser In/Out

If you have your browser set at higher than 100% ("zooming in"), you may notice some fields or features of Marketplace don't work correctly or aren't visible to you. For example, if you set your browser to 200% size, the Marketplace drop-down menus for Partners, Candidates, Jobs and Splits will stop working - this is true in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. Zooming "out" to something less than 200% will restore the menu functionality.

Resume Formatting

As more members have recently been working with candidates, we are seeing an increase in tech support requests related to difficulty parsing resumes. In almost every instance, the resume in question is full of logos, pictures, tables, or other images. The resume parser can ONLY read text. Resumes that are filled with images will not parse correctly.

Resume Formatting Veronica Blatt 2022-05-02 04:00:00Z 0 Technology Tips

Converting PDFs to Word

A fairly common support request we receive at NPAworldwide is regarding PDF resumes that won't upload to Marketplace. If your candidate has embedded images, tables, odd fonts, or other problematic data in the PDF, you'll likely encounter difficulties getting that resume/CV uploaded. You may even have trouble opening the file. As more candidates use mobile devices for their career searches, we think that PDF versions of resumes are likely to increase, since they can easily be stored and opened on a mobile device.

Recruiter Contact Information and the NPAworldwide Job Board

story thumbnail

Important reminder to members: If you are posting jobs on the NPAworldwide Job Board, you may NOT include your contact information in ANY of the description fields (What Makes This a Great Job, Job Description, or Qualifications). This would potentially allow a candidate to circumvent the Job Board, meaning NPAworldwide would not receive the required placement fee.

Posting Records to the Job Board

A reminder to those of you who are posting jobs on Marketplace AND the Job Board. Please be sure you are NOT including private notes or recruiter-to-recruiter comments in the Job Description, Qualifications, or Why Is This a Great Opportunity fields. These are PUBLIC fields that ARE shared on the Job Board. This means job seekers are seeing information that is really not suitable for a public audience.

Best Format for Resumes/CVs

Sometimes candidates will convert their resume/CV to PDF format before sending it to a recruiter. This is typically because they don't want anyone to make changes to their resume, and believe that PDF is a "read-only" document. A PDF file CAN be edited with the correct software, so this is a false assumption by job seekers.

Hello NPAworldwide owners and recruiters, 

The Board of Directors has asked staff to invest some time and energy to find solutions for service provider needs that most  members are likely to find beneficial or necessary. Many of you have solid solutions in place for these needs, others are in search of new providers, looking for increased performance, or interested in reduced cost for the work required. Here are some of the categories the Board asked for staff to prioritize. Please reply to this thread with others that would be valuable to you if something has been missed.

I came to learn shortly after joining NPA that one of the best kept secrets of NPA membership is FLYING THE NPA FLAG. In fact, for the past several years all of my client acquisition initiates have been NPA-centric. In operation, I lead with, and go to market flying the NPA flag.

The Essence of NPA

Greetings. As I consider all of the great ideas that came out of 2022 NPA Global Conference last week, it would be easy to write about topics such as; operational best practices, technology and member achievement. In the alternative, I would rather discuss what I feel is the greatest value of in-person meetings: the opportunity to make new friends and to renew old friendships. I must say, I was very much moved by a phrase I heard last week – “The Essence of NPA.” I have never heard the phrase since joining NPA almost 10 years ago. The meaning behind this phrase simply and poignantly defines the true NPA experience.

    We are very close to launching the new NPAmarketplace powered by Oorwin. As has been previously mentioned, we will be running Matchmaker and NPAmarketplace simultaneously for some period of time. During this time, we will not be doing daily data syncing of posted candidates and jobs.

    Greetings! As I commence my two-year term as your Board Chair, I first wish to thank my good friend Jason Elias (now serving as Immediate Past Chair) for his dedication not only to NPA but also to our industry. Strategically, Jason marshaled NPA  through a global pandemic, while also always keeping his watchful eye on creating membership value. I would  embarrass Jason if I listed his awards and achievements at NPA and in our industry. I will simply say that this network is much better today because of dedicated leaders such as Jason. Thank you mate! You remain an inspiration to us all.

    Exciting times! We are getting very close to the launch of NPAmarketplace. This tool will replace Matchmaker when everyone has been given access and trained. We are working on data transitions to bring over existing records. That data transition is taking a long time to get it done right. As soon as that is completed, we will be in a position to start the process of launching. Here’s the plan:

    Splits and Brokerage

    Posted by Nicky P. Anderson on Feb 10, 2022

    Dear Nicky,

    I am a newer member, and I'm a bit confused about a couple of items. First, if I submit a candidate or a job directly to a trading partner, do I also have to post it on the system? Secondly, if I make a placement with a partner, and neither the job nor the candidate were posted on the system, is brokerage still owed?

    One of the benefits of NPAworldwide membership is the ability to promote an international capability to your clients, serve your clients outside of their home markets, maximize your firm’s business opportunity by spending your time where the jobs are, and avoiding down economic situations in your home market. NPAworldwide defines “cross-border” splits as deals where the partners are operating in different countries. Here is a story about members that completed a cross-border split.

    Each NPA member works their business, their desk, their NPA membership differently…and that is okay as long as we are NOT being detrimental to other NPA member/owners. Remember that - WE all own NPAworldwide, it’s not owned by THEM or HIM or HER or a CORPORATE ENTITY…its owned by all and each NPA Member.

    Greeting fellow members,
     
    I wanted to highlight a couple of changes to some of the terminology we use in the network. While us old-timers understand the difference between an "importer" and "exporter," for some it is not that easy. Head office probably spends 3 weeks a year explaining the wording to prospective members, rookie members and even some members who should know by now.

    Cross-Border Placement: Park Lane Recruitment Ltd and Reflex Staffing Solutions

    story thumbnail

    One of the benefits of NPAworldwide membership is the ability to promote an international capability to your clients, serve your clients outside of their home markets, maximize your firm’s business opportunity by spending your time where the jobs are, and avoiding down economic situations in your home market. NPAworldwide defines “cross-border” splits as deals where the partners are operating in different countries. Here is a story about members that completed a cross-border split.

    The Resume/ CV  Is Only Part Of The Story
     

    story thumbnail

    Mike O Leary mentioned this to me, and I thought it was worth sharing.

    "As a recruiter I can tell you that a resume provides valuable info, but what is most valuable is a resume with a recruiter’s judgement and notes. If you have a high-level candidate pick up the phone, call those folks and get a good sense of what they do and what they want. Make sure that is included in the notes you send your NPA Partner when you send the resume."

    Greetings fellow members,

    As I write this, my home town of Sydney has just emerged from 106 days of lockdown. There are plans to open the international border and overseas travel after almost two years of isolation  (coinciding with my term as NPA chair🤔).

    Job Board Usage - Recruiter Contact Details

    Posted by Dave Nerz on Sep 24, 2021
    story thumbnail

    The Operations Manual forbids inclusion of contact information on NPA Job Board postings. The reason is that inclusion of contact info allows candidates to circumvent the use of the Job Board. In these cases, the procuring cause, the Job Board, would not be known or recognized. Jobs that contain contact information will be removed from the Job Board and the offending member may be further restricted from use of the Job Board.

    Good Candidates are Hard to Find

    Guessing we all know that the subject line is true. So, what can we do? Really it is not as much due to a lack of talent, but many candidates are prioritizing a good workplace along with a good work/life balance, most love the flex/remote working options as well.

    Lackluster Response on Candidates

    Posted by Nicky P. Anderson on Sep 10, 2021
    story thumbnail

    Dear Nicky

    I have been in NPA for just over a year and I routinely send candidates to my partners for their posted roles. Some say thanks, some give me good feedback, others tell me to vet my candidate on the job specs and others I never hear from. I'm frustrated with the lack of placements and don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any good advice?

    Getting Attention on Your Jobs
     

    Posted by Marcia Bateman on Aug 30, 2021
    story thumbnail
    Boring jobs attract boring applicants so make sure yours stands out from the rest. Focus on the message itself and don’t cut and paste a long-drawn out description. Nothing bugs folks more than a job order that says things like; must be able to sit/ stand, use the phone, excel, etc. Save those details for later if important.

    The number one reason most people join NPAworldwide is to make money – splits or the job board helps to produce quality candidates and jobs to be filled.

    Another reason might be for intelligence in industry insights and expertise – training, learning to use new technologies.

    Dear Nicky,

    I made a placement with a member and the terms were 30 days. About 25 days in, they told me it would be 60 days. I am feeling a bit taken aback. This is my first deal in NPAworldwide. Is this the norm?
