"Sorry you feel that way.  I am certain you as others get tired of the back and forth of what the true employment situation is.  The unemployment factor or "perception of unemployment" affects our ability to attract the talent we…"

"This really needs some serious editing and spell check.  And to be quite honest, this reads like an angry political rant rather than a useful recruiting post. "

"I agree with Julie and can share in the frustration from my staff what they experience daily.  They say 100 people applied and do not meet the minimum requirements.  Since the majority of our positions our full time with our company as we…"

Why do we lie about unemployment?

There are things that seriously I do not understand….let me re-phrase, I understand why they are done. What amazes me is that people believe the people the spit the garbage out to us like we a herd of cattle waiting to be fed. Unemployment – what is the situation? It is a total crap shoot. Sectors are rising and falling more than any historical average, we have no known correlation anymore between the economy and jobs due to technical productivity gains, globalization, and of course the debt we…See More

"Jason, you missed the point.. gas pumps and grocery stores are silly examples.. think of things that really are negotiated, such as the price of a car..men tend to haggle, women tend to accept the "bottom line best price" and just sign on…"

Do We Really Need Personal Pages?

Posted on April 28, 2011 at 11:40am 4 Comments

I'm not talking about Facebook or other forms of social media, I am referring to the people that think designing a web page or home page to find a job using services like about.me and flavors.me.  Enough is Enough! Employers are not looking for flashy pizzazz, they are looking for someone that can do the job.  Technology is integrating itself into our lives more and more everyday but the workforce and hiring managers, they still use a calculator and pick up the phone.   It's not that using a…

How do I Recover from a Bad Job Interview?

Posted on April 13, 2011 at 9:39am 3 Comments

Going on a job interview is nerve racking and I am certain dreaded by most professionals.  Where do the nerves and stigma come from?  Previous interviews that didn’t go well and the position that wasn’t offered, that’s where. 

Think about it, you have finally gotten the dream interview for the job you have always wanted.  5 minutes in, things start going south and fast.  Stumbling answers, twisted tongue, and the sweat - the company can see right through you.  They know all your…

Why Men Earn More than Women

Posted on March 31, 2011 at 1:25pm 16 Comments

I agree that you should be paid for the job you do, if you are a Doctor you should be compensated as such, if you are a mid-level manger or a fast food employee you should be compensated as such.  In 2011, male or female can hold many of the same positions, but women only earn 80% as much as men.  It could be for traditional reasons but studies show that the gap is closing and women are no longer accepting these statistics.

Moneywatch.com stated that a MBA study showed that men and…

Fixes for Employee Morale

Posted on March 29, 2011 at 9:01am 1 Comment

Keeping people happy especially when it’s a group of people is a difficult task, combine that with all of the other uncontrollable factors in business and you’ve got yourself a challenge.  In a recent article published by Kate Page, she defines results from a study asking employees and managers to rank 10 job characteristics, and then posted the top five (Page, 2011).  They are as follows:

Employees seek:

  1. Appreciation for their work
  2. Feeling part of…

Hi Jason!  Thanks for reaching out.  I would have to say that our biggest challenge (I'm with a small organization, less than 100 ees) is to find the right blend of skills and experience for what we do.  It's not impossible but it's challenging and we find that there are times we may need to offer telecommuting when a solid candidate may not wish to relocate.  Therein lies yet a huge management challenge though -- not all managers are efficient at measuring performance with telecommuters.  There is always something, right?  Back to your question, I would say finding the right blend of experience and skills for our company's needs.
