While honesty is indeed the best policy, too many prospective employees tend to stretch the truth-- or not use the truth at all-- when they are making their resumes. If you are an employer, it can be beneficial for you to know about the most common lies you may find on a resume. If you are in the position of looking for a job, it is in everyone's best interest if you are factual and honest. No one wants to hire someone who lacks the integrity to be… Continue

If I may play 'Mr. Marketing Devil's Advocate' for a moment, let me interject one of the new rules of marketing that exist within today's intersection of a globalizing economy and the viral expansion of social media:
***Drop any opt-out marketing efforts like a bad habit.***
Opt out = spam. In the words of my friend, Seth Godin, "Opt-out takes advantage of laziness, inertia, and infoglut to inundate people with stuff they don't want.
" There are more… Continue

It used to be that summer jobs were within reach of all willing and able job seekers, most of whom were students looking for a steady gig to earn gas money or fuel the old college fund.
But as we tumble through an economic downturn that has the whispers of “recession” growing loud enough to draw the ire of even the most laid back librarian, that’s all changed.
In fact, according to a recent SnagAJob.com survey, nearly half (49%) of traditional hourly hiring standbys,… Continue

Teach something, learn something...

We introduced a very simple program and gave folks a one-week grace period to get with it. On Monday mornings, our HR folks check for timesheet compliance. If someone missed a day or a few hours here or there, a friendly reminder is sent to the person to correct the oversight. However, if he misses more than a day, or it is just quite obvious he didn't bother to fill out anything, he is invited to sing, "I'm a little teapot" at our next weekly staff meeting. We record the stunning… Continue

I have the option to work from home 2 days a week. Is working from home really the best idea? Not for me. Look, I have two daughters aged 1 and 2 years old and they keep me crazy-whoops I mean busy. Even though we have an au pair, I can still hear the child noises and it is distracting. I sort of want to play with them but then again I don't. Ahh, the dilemmas of being a working mom.
I view going into the office as a "vacation." I… Continue
