Black Friday Search Syndrome

I have a theory that the majority of Black Friday shoppers actually lose money by hitting the stores early to get the "best" deals. I'd love to see a study reviewing lists of items shoppers go out with the intent to purchase with a comparison of the total cost of only those items before Black Friday, as well as the total cost of ALL items purchased during Black Friday shopping. I know, I sound Grinchy. I think all that beautiful marketing and crowd effect makes people forget if they even really…See More

Timing, timing, timing!

If real estate has "location, location, location" then recruitment should certainly coin "timing, timing, timing" for our industry!Once, I had a candidate in final stages with a client on a Friday. I wasbuzzing about my weekend happy as a bee. Monday morning, I learn the hiring manager went to lunch over the weekend and bumped into someone that used to work for them at a different company, but they hadn't seen each other in 10 years. They got to talking about their current companies and decided…See More

Where do job descriptions go to die?

I wish I could find a lovely place to send job descriptions to die.You know what I want instead? Job clouds.Doesn't that sound lovely?A job cloud is a lovely, puffy arrangement of projects and functions that need to be completed in order for a company to be successful. Job clouds can overlap across functional areas as the needs of the company change and the people in each cloud can change as their experience and education increase.So what happens when a new client or project comes on the scene?…See More

Great advise about moving quick but I warn candidates about not sacrificing quality for speed. Best to make sure the resume is tweaked if need be for that posting.

I heard that if you have a goal, you should never say that you're going to start it sometime in the future. Don't say, "I'll start that tomorrow morning" or "I'll do that after ____" because it creates a sense of non-urgency in your subconscious. If you can put it off for awhile, why bother doing it at all? If you want to achieve something, fully commit by taking the first step RIGHT NOW.
