Randall Scasny commented on Cara Aley's blog post 'Pointers for Placing Recent Graduates in the Ideal Job'
"Cara, I won't say your suggestions are not valid, but I find them to be too generic and not realistic in today's job market. In the 12 years I have been in business, this year I have a record number of new/recent graduates in my roster of…"

Randall Scasny commented on Mona Berberich's blog post 'One page resumes – does size really matter?'
"Kelly, You say: "Please remember, a resume is a "summary", not a book complete with one'e entire work history." Have you looked for a job recently? Try it, and you might have a different opinion regarding what a job seeker…"

Randall Scasny commented on Mona Berberich's blog post 'One page resumes – does size really matter?'
"This issue comes up a lot of my customers(job seekers) -- the length of a resume. Especially with older job seekers (45 and over) who have been brought up on the 1-page only resume. When I give a seminar, I approach this topic in a different way.…"

Randall Scasny commented on Ryan Harding's blog post 'Why I stay away from job boards….'
"Ryan, you may find value in job boards as you stated, but I'd suggest you re3ad between the lines. Look at the rhetorical drift of these posts. Clearly, some of the posters don't find value in them."

Randall Scasny commented on Ryan Harding's blog post 'Why I stay away from job boards….'
"By staying away from "job boards" you are saying they have no value to you. I can accept that. But to suggest they have no value and are a waste of time, that's a different story. I have customers who get hired by applying through a…"

"Ryan, You ask an excellent question. Since I operate a job search assistance service, and the job seeker pays me a fee, I get to know them quite well, especially if i work with them for months. What I have found is that people who are unhappy with…"

"I've been in the job search assistance business for a long time. I've also spent a lot of time "testing" the effectiveness of job boards and social recruiting sites. A handful of leads from social sites--dreadful responses even…"

"My last hire last week was through an employer's website, not mobile. I don't think 25% is very high. In fact, it's pretty low. My feeling is it is too early to tell about mobile. Randall Scasny FS5 Consulting http://fs5consulting.com"

Randall Scasny commented on Debbie Fledderjohann's blog post 'Candidates Experience Discrimination After Just One Month Unemployed'
"Jerry, Your statement is not based on fact. Last year, I worked with an Microsoft veteran who was unemployed for 2 years. So, there are IT people who are unemployed. I can name more cases. But I've made my point. "
