Back in a Flash

Dear Claudia,

I hired a senior manager for my company about six months ago, a complete rockstar with heavy industry experience and credibility. It was a big deal that we were able to get her, and she was excited about what she would get to do at our company. She took us all by surprise when she announced she is going back to her old employer last week; we all thought she was a great hire, and nobody saw this coming. How do you know when a hire isn’t working out? And when can I…

Candidates, friends and all that Jazz

As I am going through my day to day I am faced with what isn't a new discussion with my clients, but something all of us recruiters talk about all the time. The Candidate experience.

This is an important piece of the overall recruiting function, whether your internal, outsourced vendor, or staffing agency, the candidate experience you and your client provide is invaluable. Than I started thinking, the experience our friends and significant others get from us are just as important. We… Continue

Helping your recruiter manage your job search

Unfortunately many more candidates today are actively pursuing jobs because their positions were eliminated, so assisting candidates to manage their job search is critical. However, we can always use your help and that typically means passing on lots of information about your current search status to the recruiter in your first conversation.

When I’m speaking with any candidate, but particularly those that have active searches the information I want to know, in order,… Continue

New wave for recruitment companies

It's funny how things have changed in the recruitment world, I remember when CV's where posted but now most recruitment companies collect CV's online. Isn't that interesting... a colleague told me that one can also collect references online for their candidates...easy! this is an automated process that alerts referee wherever they are to provide references for candidate. Once reference is uploaded online, recruiters can either do a search for the candidate online and find their… Continue

Manners 2, People Nothing

(September 05, 2008) Do good manners ever allow for harsh behavior? After last week's Rodney King style post (Can't we all just get along?) on the importance of decorum, I'm hoping to strike a bit of balance. Harsh behavior is a fundamental, though unpleasant, part of good manners.

Firm boundaries make for thriving communities.

It's been an interesting week on The…

The Future of Blogging

Picture of baby with Treo

I sit here pondering the future of blogging. A couple of weeks ago I penned a tweet on twitter that I was "wondering if microblogging will replace macroblogging?" Those few, deceptively simple words, caused me to continue to ponder. Have I lost you? Let's catch up.

Not too long ago we gained the majority of our written information from books, magazines, newspapers, and other printed material. Those media all still exist but the…

Applying to College: No Easy Task

Examine an application – Just see what is required to click that submit button. I understand universities need the information to make distinctions and decisions. However, the complexity of the application is often difficult if not impossible for students to complete.

Realize that well meaning school counselors are often spread too thin and universities recommending the students’ independence want them to do it alone. Some colleges do suggest support and guidance but from whom and… Continue

Sales Candidates: Don't bury the BS on your resume ...

Bachelor of Science degree (major in Chemistry, Biology, Molecular, etc.) is not necessary, but it is helpful in medical sales, clinical diagnostics sales, laboratory sales, DNA products sales, sales of medical or surgical supplies, medical device sales, pharmaceutical sales, or any healthcare sales. So don't bury it at the bottom of your resume where I have to search for it. Candidates who don't have a BS try to hide that fact in various ways, but if you have yours, display it proudly. (But… Continue

Online Training for Skill Development

When the purpose of corporate training is to help employees reach a particular level of skill competence, online training is often a much better choice than traditional methods of training. Online training is an excellent means of providing convenient, assessment-driven training that enables workers to move at their own pace toward accomplishing stated training goals.

Employees often have very different entry-level skills. When faced with learning a new skill that needs to be applied… Continue
