I loved this recent article in the Wall Street Journal about the power of Christina Binkley's lucky suit. Not because I'm a fan of St. Johns--I'm not. Too difficult to pull off and, in my opinion, too dowdy. And not because I advocate spending that much on a suit--it would be fun but it's unnecessary.
I love this article because Christina has a great outfit in her closet that clearly makes her feel on top of the world, confident, and successful. My theory is the "maître d" can't tell… Continue

"I learned to listen to men in a deeper way. Tuning into men's voices, instead of getting caught up on their looks, was the same as a person suddenly going blind, only to find their other senses enhanced."

Also, find people through Twitter Search for example that talk about topics you are interested in, and start conversations with them. Last week I highlighted a business from a friend that offers mediation services. My friend got people contacting him through my one Twitter post. Just 140 characters can result in closed business for you or someone else.

Certain predicted technological revolutions are more myth than reality.
After all, TV phones and laserdiscs were hailed as the wave of the future and yet, despite influencing today's technology, they've gone by the wayside.
Social networking sites might have seemed as if they'd follow the same route, but all signs suggest they're here for the long haul.
Employers are checking job applicants' profiles on sites like Facebook,… Continue

Millions of people have been queried, invited and even cajoled into joining the business social network LinkedIn. And more than 30 million of them have accepted. But while we knew LinkedIn members used the site for business reasons -- vs. the more purely social networks such as Facebook or MySpace -- we didn't know exactly who they were. Some are looking for jobs, others… Continue

Low cost providers do well in market downturns. McDonalds and Wal-Mart both posted topline growth in October. This demonstrates that the right market positioning (”Dollar Menus” and “Every day low prices”) can permit a company to make share of wallet gains in very competitive markets. In this environment, Value is the key USP. For recruitment… Continue

This post is political in nature. Other than the next clause, I won't mention the word "recruiting." But in the longer term, following and understanding political, economic, social and technological issues is critical to the services we provide the business sector... Remember, be a PEST.

The value of retiree's savings along with their homes has fallen and this coupled with inflation and the huge costs associated with health care** has resulted in many finding they must return to work if they are to live a lifestyle any where near what they planned. Unfortunately the current job market is such that it is particularly difficult to find employment regardless of age.
A number of retirees have found it is possible to get a part-time or temporary job or project assignment.… Continue

A presentation I attended from Carol Mahoney (VP of Talent Acquisition @ Yahoo!) at the Australasian Talent Conference back in April has had a profound affect on me... It has stayed in my thinking and has now bubbled to the top, it is an idea I have to action, something I have to make real... Only problem is... I'm not sure how to.
Whilst her points about branding, buzz marketing, purple squirrels and purple berrets left their mark. One of the points Carol… Continue

Can you imagine how much human capital we could create here in the US if we spent a sum equal to the recent bailout of a bunch of spoiled risk takers on technical education, literacy, housing, and wellness? On innovation and patent protection? On civility?
Imagine so much talent that recruiters would have to really sell the company and the opportunity because of competing job offers at all levels? That would separate the wheat from the chaff!
This is what… Continue

Part of every sales manager’s job is to add to the team. Hire new talent. You think you know what you’re looking for: that “spark,” that intangible “it” factor, that “something about this candidate” that tells your intuition that this is the one. You do look at resumes and previous sales figures (if they have them), but you also look for personality, drive, determination, and people skills. Not exactly an exact science, is it? There’s lots of room for error. So how do you combat that… Continue
