3 Situations When Social Media Can Cause You Harm In Your Job Search

You lost your job or you were not hired because of your activities on social media is a phrase that is both laughable and taunting. Truth is everybody loves social media. It is a free world! It would be a stretch of the truth to say otherwise. For starters, using social media brings to mind the old saying that internet technology has reduced the world to a global village.

Re-Setting The Bar

The other day I heard about a friend of a friend who had been out of work. This was a company move and layoff because of the move. No fault of the employee, and by all indications a pretty talented guy.

Regardless of the talent, he’s been looking and hasn’t found anything for about six months. He is an experienced candidate and he interviewed recently for an entry level role. Not the right fit. The company is interested in him and willing to hire him at the entry level or near entry…

How Layoffs Affect Glassdoor Reviews

It’s a feeling like no other. After months of meetings, projections, and gut-wrenching stress, the decision has been made: your company needs to lay people off.

How working for yourself can actually be less risky than changing jobs.

Since setting up Davidson Gray to invest in and support recruitment business start-ups, I must have had hundreds of conversations with recruiters considering working for themselves. The biggest reason by far most recruiters settle for a new job rather than setting up, is the desire for security.
