Impressive company names on resumes

Had a discussion this morning with a friend about the names of companies on a resume, specifically technical resumes. He took the viewpoint that having a known name on a resume is a career plus; my view is that this can only be determined knowing who is reading the resume.

Recruiters, I believe, latch on to high profile names like GE, Pepsi, or JP Morgan that appear on resumes and immediately develop a positive value assessment of the person irrespective of the content and… Continue

Relevant, Irrelevant and Provocative Interview Questions

There have been many articles written over the last few years on what is the best predictor of success in business. The costs to a company in making a bad hiring decision are significant. If a company hires a poor performing candidate, the company will see lower productivity from this employee and will have wasted the time and money to hire and train this resource. When the company replaces this employee, it will incur additional costs to replace him or her, which includes the fees to hire the… Continue

The No Client Blues

This is my first blog post. Oh my goodness, I'm blogging! (Ok enough of the epiphany). Seriously, I want to "vent" about the hardships of finding new clients. Is there anyone else experiencing this? Is it my industry focus? Is it this economic climate? Is it that time of year where things slow down? Is it a combination of all of these plus some?

Well, admittedly, I do not come from the School of Business Developers. "Cold calling" is not my specialty, neither is breaking someone's… Continue

Social Media Headhunter Cafe Launches

I've been hard at work back in my workshop, creating training for recruiters who want to use social media to hire candidates. The Social Media Headhunter Series grew out of my frustration with everyone saying that social media was great for recruiting, but few people actually using social media to hire. The result was a series of trainings where i go inside applications and walk recruiters through a step-by-step program to develop and utilize… Continue

Siemens is just fine

By now some of have heard that Siemens has been fined $1.34 Billion to settle cases of global bribery. Yet Siemens somehow was able to avoid both a guilty plea or a conviction for bribery, enabling the company to maintain its status as a "responsible contractor" with the United States Defense Logistics Agency.

The Sales Person's One-Word Job Description

Everyone is searching for answers on how to sell in a down economy. Many feel that the sales game has changed, but in reality the economic challenge has forced sales people to improve their skills and refine their approach.

When I present to sales organizations searching for the Holy Grail to sell in this economy, I start with a very basic question. "What is your job as a sales person?" Usually, that question is met with silence for a moment; and then I'm peppered by a… Continue

Fa La La La - Layoffs??

2008 – What a year! We have a historic President-Elect who we are hoping will inspire the American public. It has been officially declared that the United States has been in a recession for the past 12 months. Companies are laying off ten’s of thousands of workers while others are closing completely. And finally to top it off – a Journalist in Iraq attempted to hit George W. Bush with not one, but both of his shoes and almost succeeded. This one is definitely headed for the record… Continue
