What's one very important attribute of a successful start-up? Is it the brilliant idea? Continuous innovation? or the plain old execution? All of the above are important for the young company to survive and flourish. However, over the last decade or so that I have dealt with start-ups including building a few of my own, I have realized that focus on execution is key. There are tons of examples of companies that had just another product like many others but out shined the rest with pure focus on… Continue

To be or Not to Be.........a manager is the question. After a few years starting off in any job, most people ask the question, should I become a manager or continue to be an individual contributor?
In some countries, taking the role of a manager is not only prestigious but also the only way to grow one's compensation. In other countries such as in the U.S, a solid individual contributor can not only rake in the cash like any other manager but also is accepted and respected in the… Continue

I found this software a while ago, and I must say I have been highly impresseed. I have been recruiting for some time and would say the one thing that can make the difference between a placement and non-placement is keeping everything in line. When you are working multiple positions, being able to look things up and keep them straight is a huge help. Has anyone else tried this? It is an ACT! database structure, and so far it is great....but I was wondering if anyone else had tried it. I have… Continue

Finding your way through the myriad of updates, news blasts and Tweets about jobs and the economy is like finding your way out of a maze. Who do you listen to and who can you trust? It’s not that you shouldn’t be reminded of how the unemployment rate is nearing 10%, or that certain sectors of the economy like manufacturing for instance, may be part of a bygone era. It’s good to know where the opportunities lie and where to put your efforts. Knowledge is Power someone wise once said. But when is… Continue

When it comes to recruiting there are many aspects to focus on in the process. Some focus on the sheer quantity of resumes to provide with an acceptable pool of talent in which to choose from while others are more focused on the quality of the candidates and accessing more than just the individuals that are hitting the job boards to insure they are looking at the highest level of talent available to them.
As we know during a downturn in the economy many candidates that have been impacted… Continue

I've been asked for consult on several occasions about whether or not to use job matching systems. Obviously depending on the system my answers will vary although if I'm asked about job matching in general here's my opinion.
Stand alone job matching platforms do not
have a chance against the more traditional models, no matter the economic climate.
In a job seeker rich… Continue

Back on May 22
, I noted that Tom Golisano, founder and billionaire owner of Paychex, decided that New York statutory environment was driving businesses out of the state. Under the now - and hopefully single term - Governor Patterson, New York is becoming a place that is unfriendly towards business; unfriendly to business means unfriendly to recruiting.
Yesterday saw an old fashioned coup up in Albany… Continue

In my 18 years of following the staffing and recruiting industry, two cliches have come up now and again.
"Two and out or in for a lifetime.”
This term relates to the penchant of staffing and recruiting companies to hire freshly graduated college kids with limited experience and/or no job prespects in their chosen field. Often these young people would learn the ropes well enough to be functionally effective, then leave after a couple of years to hopefully greener… Continue

Do you know the Future?
One Saturday a couple of weeks ago, my kids and I were driving to an event where community members were being honored for years of volunteering in the community where I grew up, which is located next to the college town where I now live. My parents were some of the people honored, so it was a special time for my family.
While we were driving, out of the blue my son asked, “Mom, let’s talk about the future.” I said sure and asked him what he wanted to know. He… Continue

The best form of communication is an in person meeting or phone call, but when email is required here is a guideline on how to get the most out of your email exchange. 1) Create a subject line that best summarizes the reason for the email. A poor subject line often means your email will be deleted.
2) Do not ramble in your email. Keep it short and to the point. Bullet points allow the reader to quickly scan what is important.
3) Avoid over… Continue

Resumes must die
It is time to revisit this idea again.
You need to kill your resume!
It is especially time for me to kill my resume.
For a lot of reasons.
Me, circa 2007
I dug up an old resume from Careerbuilder that I put out there a long time ago, like in somewhere around 2007.
It looks like this:
