Subject Matter Experts Rule

Today's employers hire Subject Matter Experts to solve problems. Managers and executives might not like this, but the day of the Generalist is over.

Now that it's easy to completely customize and individualize a resume to demonstrate Subject Matter Expertise, why would a hiring manager give a second glance at a general resume that didn't exactly match requirements?

Leadership and management skills are no longer searched for skills. Sure, they are still valued, but these… Continue

"Students have commented to me and written on their course wikis that they're considering changing from finance [majors], both based on the appeal of IS and concern over availability of finance jobs" in the future, Boston College associate professor of IT John Gallaugher tells Computerworld.

So my friends who focus on finance related recruiting, it's time to convince your leadership that unless you implement a longer range focus on workforce planning for the finance function,… Continue
