You thought those interview questions were tough…Try these

Not sure how everyone else feels about the many posts and articles circulating on “tough interview” questions. What I have noticed is that many seem to have a bit of a rinse and repeat rhythm to them – same questions reworded. Here are a few of the commonly suggested tough interview questions: What would you say are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?Why should we hire you?Give us an example where you encountered a disagreement with a colleague or your direct manager. How did you resolve…See More

INTERVIEWER VS. INTERVIEWEE: Who is interviewing who?

This very question has become a debated topic amongst recruiters, HR professionals and managers – basically anyone involved in the interviewing process. As we well know, traditionally the old standard was you apply for a job and become an applicant, if lucky enough to get chosen from the applicant pile you became a viable candidate, one worth interviewing at least.  The interview stage, this is where candidates stress and prepare themselves for the opportunity to present their best and prove to…See More

"I almost always tell my candidates that an interview is a two way process.  They have every right to ask tough questions.  They should be asking these questions of both HR and the hiring managers they meet.  If the answers diverge,…"

"That's a funny conversation to have with an employer rep.  Not funny, HA HA, but funny because it actually happens--and it does, because the employer rep or hiring manager doesn't get it.  Why?  Well, because some employer…"

Process Process Process: Death to Un-tapped Talent

Having just returned from visiting family and friends in South-western Ontario, I was once again reminded of the frustrations talent faces when organizational “process” road-blocks potential. Before I begin, I have a confession to make - my name is Lisa and I was once a process-obsessed HR Professional. I was many talents’ worst nightmare, the ironclad gate-keeper with minimal awareness and direct impact on the bigger picture within my organization. The most unfortunate aspect of this whole…See More

Duplicability Factor: Are you easy to duplicate?

This lesson is learned frequently, often dismissed quickly, and tends to be a major player in the success of any aspiration, service or product. Duplicability. During my brother-in-law’s career path he reached a turning point that offered him an opportunity to gain a skill set that was very specialized, few have, and was on track for future expansion and demand based on the growing trend towards environmental responsibility and renewal. Did he have all this awareness when he took the challenge,…See More

Video Resume: Taking Another Look

Early February I posted a blog entry called “To Video or Not to Video? Resume video’s are they going to help or hinder?” and it sure did get some feedback. It also brought me to another mind-set on how video recruiting should really be handled. And of course the world has a funny way of connecting people and organizations that share…See More
