Employer Interview Questions
With the current economic climate and changing job market, employers have now started to alter the types of questions they ask in interviews. With hundreds of Internet pages dedicated to types of interview questions and all listing the same “general” type questions (what are your strengths, where do you see yourself in 10 years, etc.), employers are now steering away from these types of questions and…Continue

One thing I can guarantee is that the first time anyone gets into
recruiting they viewed it as a more noble position than just sales. I
thought this too at first. “I am going to help others” and “people are
going to need this service”. And the first thing I learned is that…
We had an interesting scenario in our office the other day. A new-ish Consultant had a complaint from a candidate about not being contacted in what he perceived to be a timely manner. And perception is what it is all about. We throw around this word a lot but really it is the crux of what we do. In such an subjective job, although every Consultant is theoretically doing the same job, we are identifying different skills in our candidates and relating differently to each of…Continue
People have dreams when starting with professional social networking. There is one common dream most networkers do not speak about, but it can be easily read from their activity.
We could formulate it like this: “When I have 1000 (5000) connections, everything will change! I will use my network…Continue
OK – I have to say I work for a cool company. Not trying for brownie points here (can’t hurt) but a company that invests in the future to me – is awesome. So Aquent sponsored/is sponsoring some
great events in 2010 and I was a very lucky attendee for two of them.

In that post, I analyzed a CNNMoney.com article titled "Say Good-Bye to Full-Time Jobs With Benefits," especially the part of the article predicting that…Continue

Coalition and Compromise
There are a lot of C words around in the UK at the moment to describe politicians,two of the most prominent being Cameron and Clegg, and personally I think they look very comfortable together despite the media desperately looking
for their lover’s tiffs.If it really does work out that our leaders, with their
conflicting ideas can come together and fix the pressing problems of the day,
it will be…
I was reminded, again, the other day, that the best recruiter for a small business is an engaged and valued employee.
Big businesses rarely have the opportunity to convert a customer into an employee. Even Starbucks has become a poster company for poor customer service stemming from poor employee experience. Small businesses, however, have a daily opportunity to check both their customer service and their recruiting brand. Just ask your customers if they would like to work for…Continue
