Job Descriptions – Are they part of your ad content, written to your audience, and, “How are they working out for you?”

I got more involved in writing, editing and re-writing job descriptions when I worked in the corporate recruiting world than ever before. Since that time I still get involved in editing and re-writing. I am guilty of not always asking permission but then I may not get it, and, after all, I am doing it in the best interest of my client and candidate. So, what’s the…

wonderful driving experience? Well NO, we all realise that this wont

work! Something is going to break,…

Are you too old to get a job?

By Pat Meehan

As a baby boomer myself, at age 57, and even though I can do pretty well on this desk top computer I’m typing on, I don’t own or operate a blackberry, I don’t like laptops, and I never send text messages. I even have a cell phone that doesn’t take pictures, much less opens up Microsoft Outlook. I have no desire to get emails 24 hours a day. Yet, in 2009, the toughest economic year in nearly 70 years, nearly one third of my…

Hey, Don't Be a Bad Boyfriend!

***Sorry, folks. This is not dedicated to Kevin; we're still blissfully in love. Maybe next time?***

I don't care who you are. Every girl, at some point, has the distinct privilege of dating a tool; that is, a man-friend that isn't nearly as into you as you'd like to think. This disinterest (that everyone can usually see except for you) can manifest itself a variety of ways. Whether Mr. BF is not returning your calls, texts, emails,…

Kawasaki's “1 Page Resume” Rule Revisited

What is the ultimate length for a resume? It depends. A one-page resume might be appropriate when you’re a junior candidate. But if you’re more experienced you’ll need several pages to show your stuff.

In my controversial blog, “My Take on Guy Kawasaki’s 1/2/3 Rule of Resume Writing,” I quoted Kawasaki’s resume rule #1:…

Top Lies Told By Candidates

Whenever people talk about candidate lying, the usual topics come up: Exaggerating dates of employment, falsifying education, inflating salary or title, hiding a criminal record, and hiding a drug habit. Most of these can be easily caught by a decent background check. You can ask for a W-2 to verify compensation. Simple diligence can prevent a person who is lying about…

Should staff who know how to use Social Media get paid more than staff who don't?

Here is a debate to get your teeth into....

I have been hammering Social Media for about 4 years now, learning, tweaking and

generally working out how it can benefit my success in business.

What if you can offer your skills to your employer at a fee for setting them up and

managing it all?

Because Social Media is very time consuming to learn, by the time you have made sense…

In the last post, we talked about the changing nature of markets and marketing in the Great Recession. This time we'll focus in on one of the results of these changes: Desktop Manufacturing.

In the old days, it could cost upwards of $10,000 to $20,000 just to create the custom molds and dies required to produce an item in a factory. Then you had to cover the costs associated with prepping…

LinkedIn Bullhorn Group B.S. - Ethics Question "Global Staffing Leaders"

I'm not a huge LinkedIn user. I have my own reasons; one being that I see them as a potential major competitor (all of us in the ATS/Recruiting business should be wary of them) but another being that I just don't have that much bandwidth between Facebook (which I really must use for family and friends) and email (which is how I do most of my work). In regards to our sales reps, we say to use whatever tools they think will move them forward-…

Mirror, mirror on the wall, am I the best candidate of all?

Most recruiters know when they have found the perfect candidate for a position. We typically have a checklist or there are requirements that the candidate meets in helping us determine their quality. While it may be clear to the recruiter or employer that a candidate is a fit, sometimes it’s not clear to the job seeker themselves. Here is a checklist for determining if you are in fact a fit for a position.

Your resume “reflects” the job description – You… Continue
