Linkedin Endorsements

Article: 3 Reasons Why I Like LinkedIn Endorsements Nowby Kristin Johnson of careerealism.comThe author states: "When LinkedIn came up with “Endorsements” last fall, I was very skeptical.

How do you introduce yourself to people you meet in business?
"Hello, I'm Terri. I'm from Chicago?" I don't know, depends on the situation, like everything. Sometimes it happens to be: "Yes, I'm a recruiter. No, not for the Army, Navy, or Marines." And other times it may be: "Do you have an extra cigarette?" Because most of the time: "I specialize in the manufacture of fiber optic fiber and components but have also worked telecommunications sales and marketing, pharmaceutical advertising, continuing medical education, and biotechnology" usually results in a glassy-eyed stare...

Which blogs would you recommend people read?
I prefer the old standbys, ERE.net and Fordyce.
What recruiting tools can you not live without?
In spite of all the new technology, I am so very grateful for having come into the industry at the beginning of the internet revolution, and having been trained in the very time-honored, old-school methods used by the pros: telephone, phone book, rolodex. This industry always will be about PEOPLE, PEOPLE, PEOPLE first and foremost.
What do you like best about RecruitingBlogs.com...
It is more targeted and informative than linkedin and more interactive than other niche sites.
...and what would you change and why?
Perhaps add a virtual game room? Or is there already one here?

The Resume - Then & Now

Posted on May 15, 2012 at 7:51pm 0 Comments

The following is an excerpt from the job-hunting guide, “The Seven Keys to Job Hunting Success” published in the early nineties by Al Bratland & Jeff Beardsley. As I looked over this guide, I was amazed at how the key points they were trying to get across to anyone in the workforce, not just candidates, are often dismissed or overlooked in today’s environment. I will be updating their guide for today’s market. Even with the sheer volume of resume writing and…
