Can you identify one of your employees whose poor customer service or output adversely affected the bottom line?
If your organization is heavily based on customer service -- which pretty much covers all businesses -- then you shouldn't gamble with hiring employees. This process should be of utmost concern.
Weeding out the mediocre is not for the: faint hearted. This process takes planning and strategy. If done too quickly, it may send out the wrong message. Such action has… Continue

We all want to retire early, but as we all know, it is a pretty hard thing to do. What you can do however, is work like your retired! Simply follow these rules:
Work Rule #1: Shut Your Phone Off
That’s right, as soon as you leave the office, shut your phone off. Customers will have to wait, co-workers will have to wait, even your boss will have to wait. If you make yourself available, people will take advantage of it. If you make it a point that you only work while at… Continue

To be a great salesman you must be able to sell a pencil. That’s right, a pencil. As a matter of fact, this is a common training technique used by many sales managers so let’s just see how you measure up to the pros.
Let’s put this situation into play. You are sitting across from a client (for now, a friend or co-worker). With you is a pen, nothing expensive, nothing fancy, just an ordinary pen. Now, your job is to get the client to buy the pen from you. How do you do it? What do you… Continue

So how can you be successful at your job? Successful in your career? Successful at an interview? Successful in life? Easy, you must first define success.
Now, success to some is defined as having a lot of possessions; some to having a lot of money; some to having a lot of time. What exactly do those break down into and where to they come from?
I can’t make you successful, only you can do that but the next time you say you aren’t successful, or even the next time you say… Continue

Just to clarify, let’s first start by defining a video resume. A video resume is a pre-recorded video of a candidate either a) explaining their resume, or b) answering a specific set of questions provided by an employer. So how can this be a bad thing? You get to see the candidate; can pay attention to their appearance, body language and facial expressions. I am here to point out the things most people don’t consider, so here they are:

If I Were Running Google...
by Aaron Goldman , Wednesday, August 6, 2008
MY LAST INSTALLMENT OF Searchery Rhymes had me wishing Sergey Pagerhoffer Schmidt were my name too. Over the last couple weeks, I've been living out that fantasy -- strictly in my head, of course -- and came up with a Top 10 list of things I'd do if I were running Google. And, since we're dreaming here, I'm assuming money's not an issue -- although, with a $145 billion market cap, it's really not much of… Continue

I met with an interesting candidate yesterday - let's call him an Alpha Baffoon. When sitting down for lunch, he threw his folder on the table from 3 ft out, making a loud "thud" . . . which was an instant red flag. At a later point, he berated a waitress because his food wasn't "up to par." The other interesting form of body language was him stretching in such a way as to claustrophobically impend on surrounding patrons . . . and it was obvious he enjoyed barreling through the crowds like a… Continue

Motivation is one of the biggest keys to developing successful teams. Every day strong skilled teams are beaten by lesser skilled ones loaded with heart and desire. But who creates the motivation for that to happen?
One of my favorite hobbies is playing baseball with my kids. I'm very involved with their Little League teams and volunteer to help teach baseball skills to the kids. My 7-year old son, Steven, is playing his first year of coach-pitch baseball. Prior to that,… Continue

Recently I have been experiencing a large number of people hanging up on me. What is driving the increase of this kind of behavior? Is it because my searches have been targeting the "Open Source" community (more radical "techies"), or do "greenhorns" just not know how to properly conduct themselves? What fosters such negativity to the recruiting community in general?

A basic understanding of the employment brand strategy and action
Have you heard these buzz words? Dynamic company, respected and valued, or how about team oriented environment? Sure they sound great but does it really mean anything to the employee? Today what you do has a far greater impact on your employer brand than anything else. We are consumers by nature and so naturally we want to be inspired, motivated, and happy, but are you doing anything to support those… Continue

I remember having debates with classmates regarding the question of nature versus nurture - which one is more important? Are all things predetermined by your genetic code? Is the environment in which you were raised more relevant in the formation of your personality, your likes and dislikes?
I got to thinking about this the other day at the hairdresser's. Yes - the hairdresser's. Going in for my tri-annual cut/color ritual, I noticed that the weather outside was beautiful. The… Continue

Can anyone help me out in understanding why I am experiencing so much difficulty finding anyone with SEAM development experience? I realize that it is relatively new, but is it that rare?
Any information will be greatly appreciated. Also if I have not done this properly, please do let me know, I'm new to "blogging" and hope this post is appropriate.
Thanks to all!
