Motivating Yourself When Your Job Sucks!

This is a bad time if you are someone who’s Monday’s are without question the worst day of the week, and every Sunday night you feel sick.

If you're new to the world of staffing sales, then you may not know that not all job orders are created equal.

What do your job board customers want?

When was the last time you asked your job board customers what they want? Not just a one-off question to a few clients – but an systematic, organized survey of everyone who uses your site? Employers and job seekers?

5 New Ways to Interview College Grads; Go Beyond the Interrogation and Towards a Proactive Approach

Have you ever seen the Fox hit television show, 24? It is gripping, action-packed and beyond unrealistic, yet I am hooked every season. 24’s hero and main man, Jack Bauer, is infamous for his 9 lives and vicious interrogation tactics that pry anything he wants out of his unsuspecting victims. Looking back on a few interviews I have been on…maybe Jack Bauer was the one who was sitting on the other side of the table, not the Hiring Manager.



There’s nothing worse than getting grilled by… Continue

When all it took was to post an advertisement in the trades, newspaper, job boards, Craigslist, or better yet, to actually pick up a phone and put the word out to your “network” for referrals?

Interesting week here in Melbourne town this week. A mid November heatwave, the likes of which have not been seen before I wouldn't think. Seriously in the pool this week, unheard of! Not complaining mind you.
