I'm not really much of one for a bait and switch, holding an ace up my sleeve, or pulling any sort of trickery on a candidate. It doesn't seem to foster a good relationship and tends to cause trust issues. For this very reason I provide as much information as I possibly can while maintaining a level playing field - I just happen to be pretty particular about my timing.
There are a lot of things a candidate should know prior to an interview. He or she should have a good idea of the… Continue
Recently I helped a friend of a friend find placement. It didn't take much for me to lend my network, and resources. I also steered the friend toward professional sites, and resume tips. I often do this for my professional network and family.
However, recently I've been overloaded by associates who need or want help. I hate to turn them away but I am on a job search myself, so have to stay focused.
My mentor suggested that I start thinking about a fee for service business.… Continue
I saw a video today which re-ignited a thought of mine, which has been bubbling away in dormant fury for the last few years.
I have got fed up with generation generalisations. In particular the constant genuflecting to the Gen Y's of the world. Get ready world, change everything here they come! They need to be treated different, they expect more, more quickly, they care for the environment, the crave community, they are more fluid in their employment ideals, they are new, fresh, the… Continue
I started my journey to the Spring ERExpo show out of Indianapolis on a flight Monday at 6:45amEST through Denver and landing in San Diego at 9:35amPST. Booking the flight I wanted to ensure that I had plenty of time to prep for the reception that night, meeting friends throughout the day and final prep for the conference. Great plan, although it didn't quite work out that way.
First my flight was put into a holding pattern over Denver due to the weather and then… Continue

So, today was not a great day. I definitely learned an important lesson...
A) Tags work, be careful how you use them
B) I need to work on my 'inner filters'
I had to pull a few blog posts down because they were not well appreciated by a particular group mentioned. Although when I first found out I was even more irritated after speaking with my leader I realized that my posts were a bit short sighted.
My leader is great at refocusing my energy on productive… Continue
Even with the tremendous growth and use of web applications, people remain the center of a connected job search. To effectively manage your job search you cannot lose sight of the fact that your relationships, while many have moved online, still need the human touch. I would maintain the primary issue with the way many connected users are approaching their job search is they are not effectively managing the Cloud. Cloud Computing has changed the way companies interact online but have you kept… Continue
