Sales Candidates: Don't bury the BS on your resume ...

Bachelor of Science degree (major in Chemistry, Biology, Molecular, etc.) is not necessary, but it is helpful in medical sales, clinical diagnostics sales, laboratory sales, DNA products sales, sales of medical or surgical supplies, medical device sales, pharmaceutical sales, or any healthcare sales. So don't bury it at the bottom of your resume where I have to search for it. Candidates who don't have a BS try to hide that fact in various ways, but if you have yours, display it proudly.

Online Training for Skill Development

When the purpose of corporate training is to help employees reach a particular level of skill competence, online training is often a much better choice than traditional methods of training. Online training is an excellent means of providing convenient, assessment-driven training that enables workers to move at their own pace toward accomplishing stated training goals.

Employees often have very different entry-level skills. When faced with learning a new skill that needs to be applied… Continue

The HRM Professional As A Strategic Partner

Gone are the days when the primary role of HRM Professionals is to 'hire and fire.' Today, the corporate world and the work environments take a new shape and sound. Cultures and norms meet and mix in the shop floor, so much so that human resource, where it used to be viewed as a capital expense, is now considered as the a capital investment. Hence, HRM professionals have now a different set of roles.

Appearance Matters in Job Interviewing

You've heard the phrase "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" many times during your life. While this concept rings true in every aspect of life, perhaps the most important time to stop and consider what this means is when preparing for a job interview.

The overall impression that you make begins, and in some cases ends, with your appearance. The moment you are introduced to a job interviewer, he or she forms an initial impression based on your appearance. When… Continue

Video Interviewing - Put your candidate’s best face forward

Video Resumes, Video Cover Letters or Video Interviews - The benefits of video services like Vipe, as shown by Plugged-in Pete.

I think that these video resumes, or as I call them, “video cover letters” can be a very good initial representation of a candidate. This is the candidate’s opportunity to get their best foot forward when presenting themselves. Or I guess in this case it’s their best face forward!

Sure, they can be done over and over… Continue

What do I have to do to get you into this car today?

Have you heard that one before from a car salesman? Everyone has. What does this have to do with recruiting? It goes to the heart of my philosophy on recruiting.

You see, I believe there are 2 types of recruiters in this industry and I've dubbed them the "Used Car Salesman" and the "Realtor". Both have their place and both can be very effective, in fact some of the most successful agency recruiters I have come in contact with have been Used Car Salesman. I just don't happen to… Continue

The key to success lies in their ability to influence. Think about it, if you’re a natural at influencing people then you are likely to blossom in the field of sales.

Where is MY tall, dark, and handsome????

The executive team meets – an agreement is reached. The job description is written, then passed on and edited, and revised, and reviewed, and edited to include the typical “works well with others” sections – and TADA. You have your typical job description.

I often liken job descriptions to personal ads just as I have likened recruiting to matchmaking. My consultants usually chuckle when I give them the following analogy:

“Job descriptions are like personal adds. If you’re… Continue

Well on my way to learning ASP.Net MVC

OK that’s not true. Actually it’s a complete lie, but I did attend a .Net developers user group meeting and received 90 minutes of free training, and while it wont’ help me it would have certainly be beneficial to many developers whose future career opportunities are defined by continued growth and knowledge in their field.

Unfortunately out of the hundreds of people that could have benefited a mere 35 people showed up. This is completely illogical as there is no membership fee, no… Continue
