Market Bouncing Back, Complete Recovery in Sight!!!

You are reading further than the initial headline for a reason. You want to believe. You want a little taste of something that has been sadly absent from business in America of late, positivity. Yesterday, I had a person tell me that he thinks that the United States may never recover, that we may never get back to where we were. The timbre of business conversations harkens back to the “Dot Bomb” fiasco several years ago, only magnified. The damage to the American psyche intensifies every day we… Continue

I really didn't want that job anyway!

Let’s just cut to the chase - interviewing and looking for a job can be extremely tough. If you have approached your job search in a professional manner you have already:

- researched and learned all you can about the company, interview team and hiring manager.

- properly formatted your resume and made sure it presents you in the best light for the position you are interviewing for.

- bought a spiffy new suit and even got your car cleaned (see previous post - Stop… Continue

I have a puzzling Love/Hate relationship with Twitter....please help!

Let me start by saying I'm a Twitter fan, and think we've only begun to scratch the surface of it's potential.

That said, as my Twitter base grows and I politely try to follow back the majority of people that for some reason have decided to follow me, I've run into a frustrating situation.

I'm following close to 1000 people and it's beginning to feel very disconnected, like we're all talking at each other.

This is no doubt mostly my fault as I don't spend a ton… Continue

Involuntary P/T workforce - a leading indicator

Involuntary part-time workers account for "...almost one in three of all part-time workers. Almost all the new involuntary part-time workers were formerly full-time workers accepting cutbacks in hours. Part-time employment invariably rises during recessions, but...the magnitude of the rise in this recession has been unprecedented since records were first kept in the 1950s. It also suggests that the jobs numbers and unemployment rate underestimate the extent to which employers have cut costs… Continue

Question to self.... are you a fraud?

It's been an interesting day. A busy busy day, which started in a flurried search for a phone hiding in my car and ending with me questioning my very worth... as I said... interesting day.

The flurry of the morning was compounded by an innocuous little quote in the book I'm reading. Now I won't quote it directly as it is fiction, and I cannot be bothered… Continue

Advertise your jobs if you want to find the best hidden skills.

During the current financial crisis many companies are being forced to retrench staff; and it’s in times like these that quality employees are holding onto their jobs. Generally these are the candidates that are making a valuable contribution to their current employer and are less likely to be considered for retrenchment. But these are exactly the types of skills that recruiters will need to hunt down if they want to ensure that they are hiring the best.

This book focuses on the activities of the Coalition Provisional Authority and its administrator, L. Paul Bremer, who governed… Continue

Randomness and recruiting

How can job boards even continue to exist? Because they connect job seekers and those who want to employ them. If a job board doesn’t do this simple task successfully, it eventually goes out of business.

But as any hiring manager, HR director, or recruiter knows, job boards are not the only solution. Why? Because the employment market is incredibly….random.

Think about it. If you’re a job seeker, you’re expected to know about the relevant job boards for your industry, the… Continue
