What is "Differential Strategy" And how can I use it to find a job?

You have been job hunting for months and you are "THE GURU" in within your market niche, but no one is biting.

The savings account is shrinking (along with your ego) and the bills are starting to pile up on that corner of your desk you find increasingly hard to look at.

"What is wrong with me?!" you ask yourself.

The truth is, nothing is wrong with you and the market is just not looking to hire someone with your skill set and experience. You are now… Continue

From Boots to Suits

Whether you're facing military retirement or you're about to complete your contractual agreement in serving your country in the Armed Forces, you now face a tremendous opportunity to start using your skills in the civilian market.

Where do you begin?

I would highly recommend you start by taking advantage of the available time to make an assessment on how marketable you are: skill sets, experience, both here in the States and abroad, and the coveted government… Continue

I have the solution to my dislike of sales!

When I signed up, my first post was entitled "I'm new to sales and I don't like it!".

I now have the answer to my woes. Offer it for FREE! Yes, implu is now a 100% FREE site. This way, I won't have to deal with sales. Ha!

How did you do?

We all want feedback from the candidate in an attempt to ascertain how they did during the interview, but from what I’ve seen in my twenty years of recruiting most candidates have an inability to truly separate how they feel about the job opportunity (interest level) from how they did on the interview (performance). So they are the wrong person to ask how they performed.

Let’s face it almost every candidate walks away from an interview interested in the job and wants to communicate… Continue

Video Job Interviews: Remote trumps Live

The obvious use of Video in Recruiting is at the job interview itself, through Video Job Interviews.

The "Live" option works in a way similar to MSN-Skype video applications, allowing conversation to take place.

In the "Remote" option, a Company sets up a Job Interview, sends it to the Candidate, and he/she completes it independently using a webcam.

Both live and remote Video Job interviews beat Video Resumes in interaction capacity, legal convenience and risks… Continue

Are Entrepreneurs Unemployable?

A recent New York Times article entitled “Economy to Entrepreneurs: Turn Back” (September 13, 2008) written by Julie Bick stated that “Amid the current economic turmoil, many entrepreneurs… and small-business are debating whether it makes sense to seek safety in the corporate life — and deciding that it does.” In the first two quarters of 2008, there were roughly 18,500 business bankruptcies, according to Dr. Chad Moutray, chief economist of the federal Small Business Administration. As an… Continue

Herding Cats

Hi Claudia,

Here is a situation. I presented a local contractor resume to my client, who requested a face 2 face interview. The candidate said he could interview with 24 hours notice, but now he tells me that his current manager will not permit him to interview during work hours. I suggested that go on his lunch hour, but he says that isn't enough time to travel to the client location, interview, and return to his job. The hiring manager is available to interview this week only,…

Top 5 Ways to Fail at Hiring

Top 5 Ways to Fail at Hiring

Posted by Jason at 9:14 PM Links to this post

If you're in the majority of businesses out there, you handle most or all of your recruiting in-house- no recruiters or staffing agencies in your hip pocket... or wallet. That is, you write your own job postings or advertisements, you research and make your own media buys, and you handle the pre-screening and interview process. If your company attends career fairs, you and your team conceive the design for your… Continue

When, "Lesson's Learned" is Worth More than A Good Salary

There are many reasons why you might not be getting paid enough at your job. Chances are that you would never guess the real reason: you.

Why am I writing this article? Because I did have a chance to bump into someone this past weekend at a social gathering. One of the first things that we talked about (I had never met this person before that night) is about salary.

She told me that she worked for a very successful medical supplies and services company… Continue

Beeeeep Beeeeep Beeeep Beeeeep... or Detecting Tonal Differences in Searches

They say there are two seasons in Washington state: Rainy season and Construction season. Although I have heard that slogan used for other areas in the country, it is particularly true in The State of Liquid Sunshine.

Driving home from work, I found myself approaching a construction site. Noting the neon orange signs, traffic cones, and large portable reader board lit up with orange lights asking me to merge left, I dutifully signaled, cleared, and proceeded to change lanes. Now I… Continue

How can my golf swing teach you a lesson in your career?

I can recall the time that I took up golf lessons with a local pro. During my lessons she taught me how to properly grip the club and swing through the ball. It felt terribly awkward but she told me it is only because I had been holding the club improperly for years. I remember her saying, keep practicing and in time your new sing will feel natural.

For several weeks I stuck with the grip and swing that the pro had showed me. My swing still felt uncomfortable and there were no… Continue

ADA Retasked - Finally

I'm biased - with family members offering recruiters a range of disabilities, I used to cringe when I was asked to help them find new jobs. Recently the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 addressed many of the original law's shortcomings as well as Supreme Court rulings that whittled away the intent of the law.

The law will make it easier for workers to prove discrimination; it explicitly relaxes several stringent… Continue
