Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter
are extremely valuable job-search tools with today’s growing desire for instant information and dependency on networking. Facebook and LinkedIn fulfill the networking dependency. Twitter is better for delivering instant information.
Twitter has grown over 1000% in the last year
– mainly b/c of the celebrity presence. But this doesn’t mean it can’t be used as an effective… Continue

Hiring MBA interns
is a cost-effective and essential way to build your leadership talent pipeline regardless of business cycles. Smart firms have learned from past mistakes and realize they cannot afford to fall behind in leadership recruiting again.

If you’ve been reading much on this site or reading virtually any other job search advice, you know that networking is critical to landing a new job. However, most people only begin building a network once they are unemployed. Better late than never. Networking can be far more effective, though, if you have an extensive address book of professional contacts that you’ve been building over time.
Begin building your network as soon as you realize it’s value, but don’t stop once you get… Continue

He completely lost me at “sir”.
It was his first chance to make a lasting impression and he totally blew it.
Clearly stated in the job description was “accurate, detail oriented, excellent communicator…” and “please contact Heather Gardner direct for immediate consideration."
Had he taken the time to look me up, he would have known…. Oh "Bing" or "Google" me please!
It’s so easy to lose out on an… Continue

In 2009, we witnessed a year of mass layoffs. In 2010, be prepared for another wave. Yet, this wave will be different. This wave will be voluntary . . . a mass exodus of employees who have lost faith in their employer.
A recent survey of American workers conducted by Harris Interactive revealed:
* 77% are not satisfied with the strategy and vision of the company and its leadership.
* 48% of workers are not satisfied with the relationship they have with their… Continue

I spent time this morning reading a blog on a British based site leadingemployersblog.com. It was titled "The Big Recruitment Debate". It was a debate with only one view being represented, which does not make a debate.
The poster named “Admin” asked the question;
‘Is it time to review the way that recruitment works?
- if a business was really committed to recruiting the absolute best, the absolute most suitable would they really put their recruitment in the hands of a third… Continue

The H1N1 flu (swine) is still occurring throughout the United States and it is likely we will continue to see more cases during the upcoming flu season in the fall and winter. It is important to take actions to prevent illness and t to make plans in the event that you or your loved ones become ill.

What would Batman do?
Gotham City just had a major layoff. Batman is now unemployed and actively looking for his next gig. Superman and Spiderman got their pink slip a week earlier.
Because Batman is an “out of the box” thinker he knows that he needs to try something different in order to find employment during these extraordinary times.

September 30th I attended MoMo Boston held at the Boston Harbor Hotel where there was the usual meet and greet of some of the finest minds in America but also a great panel discussion regarding mobile advertising, mobile platforms, the best types of phones, etc. Needless to say, out of a room of 200, there were probably 11 women. Oh well – it meant more white wine for me. And NO! I do not JUST go for the open bar – Jeez.
My reason for attending was compounded by the fact that one of… Continue

Once upon a time, if you visited a job board, you knew what you would get: whatever jobs the board had on that day. These were jobs that the board’s sales force had convinced employers to post, on that job board. If you clicked on a job, you went straight to that job posting. And if you applied for it, you did so through that particular job board.
Well, those days are long gone. Since the advent of job board aggregators such as Indeed and Simply Hired, it’s become so easy for a job… Continue

You may know of someone who despite the economic climate this year has still done remarkably well in their recruitment career. This will be down to a number of things - their tenacity, drive and determination, their recruitment experience supplying perm and contract staff to businesses from SME's to corporates (5 yrs plus in the industry),business acumen, knowledge of the New Zealand market, corporate relationships, sales and marketing ability and the overall way they just take "ownerhip" and… Continue

Here’s what I told the guy in the interview, “Over a 4 and a half year period I reported to no less than 36 different managers. Most often my obligations were split between 4 managers at a time and each of them had completely different objectives for me to meet at regular intervals. At any given time they’d have me working on either support documentation or reviewing past work product while assimilating new information that would be relevant to my performance reviews about every 6 weeks or so.… Continue
