Starting a new job can be nerve-racking, especially when it comes to adapting to a new work environment. It's as important for new hires to be able to mesh well with their coworkers as it is for them to be able to quickly learn how to do their new jobs. So what's the best way for a new employee to endear himself to his coworkers? Should he strive to be… Continue
I’ve read interesting takes on that question lately. Some good points, and some… not so much. What defines professionalism? Based on various pieces I’ve read, it’s certainly subjective. Whatever the definition anyone uses, it’s often THE factor that tips the scale from one candidate to another in the hiring process.
In trying to define it, the dictionary doesn’t seem to be much help. Webster defines professionalism as: “the conduct, aims,… Continue
In a statement by Mr Ebrahim Patel, Minister of Economic Development, to the National Assembly on the framework for South Africa’s response to the International Economic Crisis on 20 August 2009 he said: “The recession was triggered by the global economic crisis and South Africa lagged many other economies in the timing of its impact on our production, employment and economic performance.

Do you spend hours manually "Copy-Pasting" candidate details into your Database Application?

ListGrabber's contact capture technology eliminates this time consuming manual data entry process. It automatically captures candidate contact information on Websites, online directories, in e-mail signatures, documents, spreadsheets, etc and… Continue

Are you starting to make money in recruitment again? I don’t mean the nickels and dimes, I mean are you starting to make some serious money that you made earlier in this decade? If not then, maybe you should see how to reposition yourself.
The first thing you should do when repositioning yourself is understand where the economy is heading and what the economy will demand in the coming quarters. One of the best resources for recruiters who want to… Continue
For months we’ve been talking with those unfortunate IT professionals that have been affected by the economic downturn through RIF, layoffs, outsourcing, etc. about being flexible in their search. Flexible in the type of work they’ll do, their commuting distance, the salary they’ll accept…and finally we told them to be flexible in where they live and that while selling a house may be daunting there career livelihood may depend on it. However, after hearing… Continue
The appeal of applicant tracking systems (ATS) for employers is obvious: they promise to bring order to the often disordered process of managing job applicants. An ATS can theoretically drive all job applicants into a single pipeline, massage their unruly information into neatly ordered database fields set up exactly as the employer desires, and allow HR to actually manage the interactions with applicants.
Sometimes the ATS works well – and sometimes (like all software) it doesn’t.… Continue
Last week, a final year MBA student wanted me to coach him, as he was keen to move into HR, in itself a little unusual career choice. In talking to his university career manager, he was an excellent student with a passion for HR.

At times, I am still amazed and also a little disappointed, when I read the criticism by HR people of HR and it’s value to… Continue

King Louis XVII of France once said, "Punctuality is the courtesy of kings." Nearly 200 years later, some businesspeople still haven't perfected this courtesy. If you have an appointment to meet someone, and that person is late, how long should you wait?
No matter where you are on the food chain,… Continue
