i find it increasingly interesting that candidates will apply to a position and then never call the recruiter back. it seems to be happening more and more as the internet is now the majority of our recruitment efforts. i think it is because candidates can apply to so many jobs at once they don't know what jobs they are applying to. then, they get a call from the recruiter and think they are being recruited for a position that they don't want.
Blogs are great for airing dirty laundry especially if it’s the kind that has a familair odor to others. This particular situation is one I’m sure you can relate to.
It was the perfect book end to a crazy week. I’m always amazed by the number of working professionals who can’t grasp the idea that we’re here to help them. When I write “help” I don’t mean “serve your beckon call” even there are times when I wonder if someone has secretly put a “kick me” sign on me… Continue

I was watching the news last night and saw 800 people in line to apply for a serving position at a newly opened Olive Garden here in Cape Coral, FL. One woman said that she has been out of work since November 07. My wife was talking to an old friend that lives in the area and she said she's been searching for a job as well and cannot find anything or anyone that will hire her. She isn't searching for an Executive position either.
When will this joke economy turn upwards? I drive around… Continue

Interview training seems to be a topic I'm bumping into with frequency this week; who knows, maybe I need a refresher. I joined RecruitingBlogs.com and the first discussion I read was on the Candidate Development Group about Best Screening Processes. I posted one of my favorite tools there called the 5&5 -- five questions you ask a candidate during the interview, and five… Continue

Ok, 3-min rant on people that choose to put "MBA" after their names:
You're not impressing anyone.
If it's an issue of insecurity, see a therapist, buy a Corvette, or start working out - just do something other than be so transparent as to put "MBA" after your name.
I had a conversation with a guy (yes, a Clown) a couple weeks ago in which I advised him that it's still a huge business faux-pas to include those 3 letters after your name. To this he commented,… Continue
The goal of an interview isn’t just to get the job as some people might believe. The goal of an interview is to obtain a sufficient understanding of the company, the job (i.e., is this a job I even want?), as well as to provide your potential employer with an understanding of your skills relative to their needs (i.e., is this a good fit for my skills?).
With that goal in mind, the questions you should ask become absolutely essential to achieving this goal. While everyone has their… Continue
