Help me see the light with job clubs…please

I’ll start this off by admitting that I am not an authority on job clubs. For some of you, this might be a good time to stop reading this blog because I just don’t get them. For those of you that are a part of job clubs, can you kindly (or not) explain to me:- What value do you get from belonging to the group?- What advantage have you achieved?- How much time have you given?- What has the group done for you lately?- Is it just a big rah rah meeting?I’m asking these questions because I think job…See More

"Excellent point ---> " I also tend to see resumes that may be better fits for other positions within the organization and apply them into those roles. It's the main reason why I like to review all the resumes coming in." Thanks!"

"I do try to. My ATS fortunately has a feature which allows for instant e-mail notifications once I select "DNQ." I've had others that don't have such functionality. Perhaps my view is different because I'm corporate rather…"

"Jennifer - I think that is great and if I were an internal recruiter I would strive to do that as well. I'm just not sure everyone is able to manage their time (ie has enough time). Do you also reply back to those candidates as well?"

"Tiger - Thanks for the comment. I had a similar suggestion in terms of going to LinkedIn but, since this wasn't a role that was inittiated by a recruiter, I thought it made more sense to try the direct route and advised that she try to identify…"

Jennifer commented on Duane Roberts's blog post 'Black holes, resumes, anger, oh my!'
"Maybe I'm a bit old fashioned but I don't use keyword searches to identify my candidates through our ATS. I still eyeball every resume that comes in and make my determination on qualifications for myself. I don't rely on the computer…"

Tiger Patrick commented on Duane Roberts's blog post 'Black holes, resumes, anger, oh my!'
"Interesting... I have called the CV's sent to a job listing on the web a victim of the "black hole" for years now. With the use of Key word search software instead of eyes in many cases, a great fit of a candidate with a CV not…"

Black holes, resumes, anger, oh my!

Posted on September 22, 2010 at 6:20pm 6 Comments

A job seeker recently sent me an email asking my advice on a situation that I’m sure many folks have dealt with. She heard through the grapevine that a local company was looking to hire but did not have a direct contact. She thought she would differentiate herself and decided to not only send in her resume through the website but to also leave a message with HR to let them know that:

1. They should be on the lookout for her resume because she is qualified for the position she…

Whats your digital footprint say about you?

Posted on January 20, 2010 at 2:17am 2 Comments

So you have a profile on LinkedIn; pictures on FaceBook; tell the world about your day on Twitter and your job at your blog. If you are looking for a job, and I were to trace your steps and follow each of these footprints, what type of picture are your painting? Are you someone who likes to "get down" on the weekends, drinking everything in sight (proof provided by you or your friends FaceBook pics). Maybe you like to read science fiction novels (you can show the books you are reading on… Continue

Are you too scared to find a job? This isn’t Amway and you need to get active!

Posted on November 23, 2009 at 10:43pm 2 Comments

If you are looking for a job, you must pull out all the stops. Can you relate to any of these scenarios:



- Former colleagues don’t know you are looking for a job.



- You have a large following on LinkedIn or FaceBook that you haven’t networked with.



- You haven’t checked in with past employers to see if they might be interested in rehiring you or referring you to new opportunities.



- Your resume is not updated.



I could go on and on with… Continue

Of Resume Stuffers & the Nobel Prize

Posted on November 23, 2009 at 1:03am 0 Comments

Now that all the hoopla has died down I figured I throw my hat in the President Obama, Nobel Prize, drama. First a couple of qualifiers:



1. This isn’t a political post.



2. It doesn’t matter who I voted for.



3. Unlike most people who have already discussed this subject, I’m going to keep this brief and focused on my area of expertise.



Looking at this from a career accomplishments point of view, a resume stuffer if you will, this is pure gold for… Continue

Thanks for calling in today and thanks for the posts that you write here. Have a good night.

I'd love to chat with you sometime. I also work from my home office and never found it challenging until recently. I'd also be interested in hearing what your experience has been like with Korn Ferry. I've always respected that firm but have had limited interaction with them while on the corporate/client side. Are you going to the Sac Area Recruiters meeting on May 8th?

Hi Duane,

I live in Elk Grove also! What firm are you with?

You should post a real pic of yourself:)

Cheers,
Suzanne
