As a Realtor, I dont have to tell anyone the toils and tribulations of the housing market, it's all over the news and media. I talk with other Realtors that are quitting everyday because the"market" is bad. I say, it's not. A business is what you make it!!! Being a Realtor, just because you have a real estate license, doesnt mean people hunt you down to sell or find them a home for them to buy. This business like any other is what you make it, if you are honest and work hard, it will come. We… Continue

I have a friend here in Ohio who is a SQL and Database Manager for the VA for over 11 years. He is looking for some additional income and is looking for some IT work that he can do remotely. I can send his resume to anyone interested, but he is not looking to leave the VA, he is looking for contract work.

A good little article to perhaps share with clients.
Some key points
PAY LAVISHLY Higher-than-average salaries—and tying bonuses and raises to the market, not a pool—can make stars less likely to bolt. Money is no object in hiring.
LET THEM GO Don't give B performers a middling raise. Give them a decent chunk of cash and show them the door. And don’t surprise them. The laid-off leave with their dignity.…

I have started to practice flipping and x-raying sites. I am finding some really good stuff out there, but here is my problem: by mining deeply, I am getting to directories and files (especially Excel and Word documents) that are clearly not posted for public access. So my question is, should I be feeling guilty about using this information?
I love this question, because it shows two things: first,… Continue

I am considering subscribing to Talent Hook and wonder if any of you would share your experiences with me who have used, or currently use, this tool. Have you found it valuable on an ongoing basis? Any gripes or problems? Is their customer service as good and as accessible as they claim? Are there other similar tools out there that you feel are better or comparable?
Thank you for your input!

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
