Make the most of your new Full time Job (getting a job)

This week I was talking with some of our Jumpstart my job search participants, and realized that there are some themes to the challenges and opportunities that they found, which are consistent whether they were just beginning their job search or had been at it for quite a while. So I decided to summarize 5 keys they found most impactful in getting their job search off the ground.





1.Treat it like a… Continue

HR Lite Culture: Is it right for your biz?

At what point does a start-up or a small business need HR? In my experience many small businesses feel comfortable as long as their payroll company is handling payroll reporting properly. Yet, as the business grows, the need for standardization in managing people develops. Policies on vacation, sick time, harassment, dress attire and much more begin to surface.



I’ve heard clients use the term “HR Lite” to express their internal HR structure. Basically, they don’t want rules to stifle… Continue

The Holidays-Time To Get To Work!

While most of us are busy getting ready for the holidays, whether that includes traveling to visit family or making plans to entertain friends at home, we might want to make the most of the time we have now and do something a little different, like focus on ourselves. We tend to busy ourselves with plans that usually involve helping and taking care of others. In all that entails, we should remember to take the time and attention to tend to ourselves. If we don’t, we can’t always expect others… Continue

Of Resume Stuffers & the Nobel Prize

Now that all the hoopla has died down I figured I throw my hat in the President Obama, Nobel Prize, drama. First a couple of qualifiers:



1. This isn’t a political post.



2. It doesn’t matter who I voted for.



3. Unlike most people who have already discussed this subject, I’m going to keep this brief and focused on my area of expertise.



Looking at this from a career accomplishments point of view, a resume stuffer if you will, this is pure gold for… Continue

Great article on hiring for start-ups

Check out this great article I have found on how important hiring the right employees from the beginning is for start-up companies. Human Resources is a great solution whether you have the person on board full-time or contract. You may or may not know this about me, but I love working with start-up organizations. We have placed many HR professionals both on contract and full time positions for many start-ups. If you need help hiring or determining who the right hire may be, let me know. I would… Continue

The Story of the Fisherman and the Recruiting Recovery of 2010

My friends, there is a huge ocean out there containing many species of fish, enough for everyone!



There was once a fisherman who was only interested in one type of fish. And that fish was the lobster. The reason why he was only interested in the lobster was because he loved lobsters. He knew where to find them, he knew how to catch them, and he knew many different ways to prepare delicious lobster meals. He had relationships with and belong to a network of lobster lovers; merchants… Continue

With that, the parties are starting, the liver is getting prepared both professionally and personally.

When it comes to writing recruitment copy, first impressions really do count

I may bang on about it a lot, but that's because I am on a mission - A mission to try and up the quality of content on the plethora of job boards that are out there in cyberspace. Here's why.....



Job advertising is one of the most effective sourcing mechanisms available to you and your company – not only for candidates, but for prospective clients and future employees. Advertising is often the very first time people get to find out who your company are, what you do… and how good you… Continue

Online recruitment: Quantity at the expense of quality?

Let's face it, we've never before lived in an age where such a plethora of job opportunities are accessible to us at the mere touch of a button. But is this instantaneous solution really all it's cracked up to be? Is the constant search for new and supposedly better ways to reach the job seeker really an advance, or merely adding to the woes of the already stressed out candidate who, when faced with a huge list of all too often bland and uninspiring job posts, struggles to separate the wheat…

The Client Side - We're Not Alone

I was out for a hike in nearby state park with my son's Cub Scout den on a beautiful North Carolina day today and had an interesting conversation with a friend whose son is also in the den. I love those conversations with smart people in other businesses where you can share and gain perspective outside of your normal business routine. This friend has a renewable energy business. It's a neat business model, he's got VC capital (something most of us in our business couldn't fathom), and he's in… Continue

How can the Australian job market continue its growth?

Hacked E-mails Fuel Climate Change Skeptics

Hundreds of private e-mails and documents hacked from a computer server at a British university are causing a stir among global warming skeptics, who say they show that climate scientists conspired to overstate the case for a human influence on climate change.



The e-mails, attributed to prominent American and British climate researchers, include discussions of scientific data and whether it should be released, exchanges about how best to combat the arguments of skeptics, and casual… Continue
