"Excellent thought on transitional changes in the market dynamics. I must agree to you that a hiring manger have to work later due to the prolonged procedure, and even they might fail in hiring a suitable candidate. In my perspective, there is a…"

Every Hire Is A Miracle

As you can see, it has been a month since our last blog post. Let this be a sign for those of you on the job market that better days are coming. We have been working on some hard to fill positions that did not allow me to complete some of the blog posts that I have started. This post was one of them. The inspiration for the title came from the fact that behind the scenes of every job posting, there exists a complete network that is constantly expanding and contracting, bringing in people and…See More

"Did you know that Listerine was once marketed as a floor cleaner and a cure for gonorrhea? It wasn't until it was used in its current form that it gained popularity. The thing is, the formula didn't change, the message did. As humans, we…"

January 8th Job Search Resolutions

It cannot be avoided. It is the new year and talk of resolutions will abound. However, rather than blog about new year's resolutions in December when people are speaking of future commitments or January 1st when we are still buzzing with excitement that we survived another calendar year. I waited a week out when the cloud has been lifted and the high has worn off. Since it usually only takes about a week for most people to start breaking their resolutions, I felt that those who make it to…See More

The Light At the End of Your Job Search

Have you ever noticed that as soon as you land a position other opportunities start presenting themselves? Do you find that strange? What about the phenomenon that occurs when several companies ask you to interview in quick succession? How does that happen and why is it so unpredictable? Well, there are several factors that play into these occurrences. Some things that influence it are the market, the number of positions you applied for, and the depth of your network. However, I am going to…See More

Companies Have Feelings Too

On December 9, 2009 we hosted a webinar entitled, "The Anatomy of the Interview Process". During the presentation we discussed how a company's interview process is their formalized relationship building practice. Our goal was to convey to job seekers the fact that like all relationships, the interview process is designed to evolve in stages. Therefore, a key contributor to interviewing success is respect for the…See More

Be The Turducken When You Interview

With Thanksgiving here, I decided to get festive in my interview analogies by introducing the Turducken as a model for job seekers to consider the next time they sit down for an interview. For those you who have never heard of the Turducken, it is a partially deboned Turkey that is stuffed with a deboned duck that itself has been stuffed with deboned chicken. But that's not it. There's more stuff inside. The minds who invented…See More
