Real life Graduation....into work!

I interview Graduates & I really do know how tough it is out there for them. The long term view isn’t all that bright & I can’t give Graduates a heap of platitudes. There are too many candidates – Grad & non Grad on the market looking for the same jobs to do that.But, if I can impart one really solid piece of advice it’s this: if you finished studying last Summer & still have no work, you must try & push yourself NOW to get some Temping – or voluntary work.I’m noticing those…See More

Temping vs benefits: Is it such a tough choice?

I’ve recently moved into the exciting world of providing Temps after a few years’ break & wow – has it changed. Not only because the Agency Workers Regulations that were introduced in October 2011 gives agency workers (temps) entitlement to the same basic employment & working conditions as if they’d been recruited directly. It’s also because I’ve noted that this ‘recession’ is scaring good, strong candidates away from leaving their ‘benefits’ to sign off & work. It was always thus,…See More

"A pet hate of mine and pretty much everyone in the recruitment marketing industry. It is quite simply the biggest cheesiest, most unoriginal cliche in the business and has been for at least 25 years. It's a bit like Christmas decorations going…"

Been fed the ‘New Year-New Job’ line? Don’t buy it!

The above must be the most over-used Recruiting / Agency line in the world. Year in & year out it gets trotted out – but no new colour palette or font will make it sound anything else but trite. It means absolutely zero.So you went back to work? And on day ONE you’ve already decided you cant hack it any more….so should you, as the above statement says, just go & jack it in!In this market & indeed in all others I’ve worked in. I say not. My school of thought (based solely on…See More

Candidates & their Curriculum Vitea's

I read yesterday that three quarters of candidates CV’s get rejected if they contain mistakes. And my honest response is….really – only that few? This blog is borne out of hearing of this statistic on the same day as receiving a CV that seemed to go against everything that’s happening ‘out there’ in the jobs market & I thought it was worth sharing. Firstly I bother. I read into CV’s. I check facts & even if they're no good for the particular role, I reject EVERY CV personally. I do…See More
