Hiring Practices That Kill Deals… or How to Avoid Faceplanting in the Net

In the early spring of this year, the flowers were blooming, birds were singing, and I began to plan my summer garden. The previous year was a complete bust for my container garden. Poor location coupled with an unusually cool and cloudy summer doomed my basil and tomatoes from the outset, and my peppers didn’t fare much better.

Why Can’t the Recruiting & Staffing Industry Operate More Like the Real Estate Industry?

In the real estate industry both buyer and seller can have a representative. A listing agent represents the seller after securing an exclusive right to market a property. A buyer's agent works to find the right property that meets their client’s requirements.

Most Common Phone Interview Questions

This means that the employer has reviewed the candidate’s resume and or application and they are showing some interest which is a positive step forward, although the candidate is still far away from being hired! The phone interview in many cases may be a make-it or break-it for many candidates as this is mainly a way for the employer to verify if the “you” the candidate are both a cultural and technical fit for their… Continue

The phone interview is often used as a way to screen potential candidates while a live interview is used to further understand potential candidates. But what if the screening process was flawed?
