I’ve asked Carol to share some insights on how to handle insurance coverage when your career may be in flux, and whose… Continue

When it comes to manufacturing, few regions can compete with China’s labor costs. Companies that rely on outsourced products, however, have lots of new hurdles to clear — just ask the firms that wound up selling lead-laced toys made in China. Therefore, is setting up a company in China still worth the risk? Our sources say yes: Companies can maintain product quality and safety while reducing costs. Here’s what you’ll need to manage the process and keep your brand - and your customers - safe.… Continue

The balance has shifted quite dramatically from a market dominated and controlled by talent to recession. Just a few years ago we were all asking ourselves what to do when the Boomers exit the market and how to address the coming void of talent? Now Boomers are competition in a talent rich and jobless market. Competition is high and the opportunity to separate yourself from the pack is sought after daily.
A few weekends ago I spent time at a local church where volunteers helped job… Continue

After I participated in the@animal http://cli.gs/DBSPy9
Radio Show I became more introspective about how I use Social Media as a Social Recruiting tool. What do I use SM for? How do I integrate SM with Full Life Cycle Recruiting? How do I use SM to source new Client Partners and new Human Capital Partners? I am defining SM as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Blogs. I am sure there are more, but for… Continue

I was recently asked to speak to a group of Human Resources professionals about emerging trends in recruiting and Human Resources technology. The moderator of the group asked if I could send some preview collateral, a PowerPoint or PDF, that he could distribute to the group prior to the meeting. Having created, reviewed, deleted, ignored, and edited thousands of PowerPoint’s and PDF’s in my career, I decided that I was going to do something different. Knowing that most audiences have a very… Continue

Ramping up or down:
Ramp up: If it is a morning interview, make sure you get a good night's sleep. If you are currently not employed, ramp up with some last minute study or review of notes/job/resume, read the Wall… Continue

I'm not really much of one for a bait and switch, holding an ace up my sleeve, or pulling any sort of trickery on a candidate. It doesn't seem to foster a good relationship and tends to cause trust issues. For this very reason I provide as much information as I possibly can while maintaining a level playing field - I just happen to be pretty particular about my timing.
There are a lot of things a candidate should know prior to an interview. He or she should have a good idea of the… Continue

Recently I helped a friend of a friend find placement. It didn't take much for me to lend my network, and resources. I also steered the friend toward professional sites, and resume tips. I often do this for my professional network and family.
However, recently I've been overloaded by associates who need or want help. I hate to turn them away but I am on a job search myself, so have to stay focused.
My mentor suggested that I start thinking about a fee for service business.… Continue

I saw a video today which re-ignited a thought of mine, which has been bubbling away in dormant fury for the last few years.
I have got fed up with generation generalisations. In particular the constant genuflecting to the Gen Y's of the world. Get ready world, change everything here they come! They need to be treated different, they expect more, more quickly, they care for the environment, the crave community, they are more fluid in their employment ideals, they are new, fresh, the… Continue

I started my journey to the Spring ERExpo show out of Indianapolis on a flight Monday at 6:45amEST through Denver and landing in San Diego at 9:35amPST. Booking the flight I wanted to ensure that I had plenty of time to prep for the reception that night, meeting friends throughout the day and final prep for the conference. Great plan, although it didn't quite work out that way.
First my flight was put into a holding pattern over Denver due to the weather and then… Continue

So, today was not a great day. I definitely learned an important lesson...
A) Tags work, be careful how you use them
B) I need to work on my 'inner filters'
I had to pull a few blog posts down because they were not well appreciated by a particular group mentioned. Although when I first found out I was even more irritated after speaking with my leader I realized that my posts were a bit short sighted.
My leader is great at refocusing my energy on productive… Continue
