Here's another success story from someone who did just that, with lessons you can apply to your job search today ...

Are you looking for a rewarding career that will provide you with a flexible schedule and an opportunity to help other people accomplish their dreams? If so, real estate might be a great career choice for you. Realtors have the opportunities to help individuals and families find the homes of their dreams. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to become a successful Realtor, but the personal and professional rewards can be great.

I thought it might be worthwhile to share the following chart with everyone at RBC. If you think about this chart, it's more about game theory and competitive response than anything else . . . so my question is, what if you focused purely on the 'innovation' element relative to recruiting or talent acquisition?
How would that change the responses here? My take is that most competitors are not keeping tabs on competitors relative to their 'plays' or 'moves' to improve their relative… Continue

"When you are trying to impress people with words, the more you say, the more common you appear, and the less in control. Even if you are saying something banal, it will seem original if you make it vague, open-ended, and sphinxlike. Powerful people impress and intimidate by saying less. The more you say, the more likely you are to say something foolish."
In other words, better recruiters will speak less yet say more. Or to put it colloquially, give someone enough rope and… Continue
