Engage your Culture for a Strong Employer Brand

Employee Engagement, Corporate Culture, and Employer BrandIt may seem like a lot of topics to try and cover all at once, but the simple fact is that you can’t have one without the other. You can’t talk about corporate culture without addressing employee engagement, and you certainly can’t have a good (and realistic)…See More

"Wait - I think I just found the perfect objective on a resume I just opened.... To obtain a position within the company.  "

"I agree with the general consensus in that Objectives are not going to open doors.  One of the first things I tell candidates as we begin to work together is “please take the objective off of your resume”.  You are submitting…"

"For certain, I don't have any great resume objectives to share, but here is an opinion of resume objectives in general.  Objectives scream "out of touch" with the modern employment world, oblivious to current career marketing…"

"Tony, I agree with Sandra. For example, I would add, a career changer(they have been a RN, and now they are seeking more Administrative roles, etc), or something highly technical. Otherwise, I would rather see, and so would the hiring managers, a…"

"Unless someone has a very specific objective, eg, private practice group of five or more physicians located in s. Florida. Leave it off. Objectives are more often a knock out than anything else. Replace it with a short career summary or synopsis of…"

"Tony, great article! I work in IT recruiting where good talent is scarce. Candidates who accept lowball offers are sure to take the next job they find with a better offer. Cheap = No loyalty."

Posted on March 25, 2013 at 1:00pm 8 Comments

As a recruiter, I’ve had to learn to adapt to many different personalities. (Haven’t we all?) This applies to both candidates and hiring managers alike. When it comes time to make an offer, you’d better know the personalities on both sides very well if you want to make the deal.
