The Art of a Thank You Note

I am still surprised to learn of candidates who do not know how to write a Thank You note. Most of these candidates seem to be surprised to learn that creating a Thank You note could be the thin line between an offer and a rejection. A Thank You note can give you a step up on the competition of another candidate who may have similar skills and the personality to match the team.The Art of a Thank You note is not to Google “how do I write a thank you note for an interview” but more to answer or…See More

Ideas to help commuters pass the time

Posted on January 11, 2013 at 10:12am 0 Comments

With the market varying in certain areas, some candidates have had to find other locations for positions that either match their skill set or match their lifestyle requirement. There are more consultants who will take a longer commute over less money. Once that long commute becomes tiring, they may begin to start their job search all over again.

Dreaded MIA Candidate

Posted on November 28, 2012 at 8:27am 49 Comments

All of us Recruiters have been through it-the dreaded MIA candidate.
