Given the current state of the economy, jobs are hard to keep and even harder to get. This is a time when a company's training department can come to the rescue. Often times, when layoffs are prevalent, there are fewer employees to do the same amount of work. When these situations occur, the training department must step up and organize frequent training seminars. This is a great way to train a large group of people in a more effective way.
However, some organizations feel that… Continue

In the past few weeks, the famous 1995 Newsweek article by Clifford Stoll entitled, “The Internet? Bah!”
has again made an electronic loop around the Internet. In this popular article, Stoll discussed all the reasons why the Internet would FAIL to reach its overhyped potential. Many of the key examples used in the article have not only proven to be feasible online, but are thriving examples of the… Continue

The Jobs Bill won’t create many jobs. And you know what? It sucks. We’ve lost millions of jobs and this bill is not enough. Let me say it
We have a solution that is so easy and so plain as day that it’s right front of your face. But we’ve become a bunch of corporate zombies Continue
dragging our half-alive-half-dead-ass-carcasses to work we don’t even
see it. In our lives we have become quietly discontent. Focused…

Little bit of psychology with this post. I’m a fan of this technique-affirmations and visualizations. This technique can be used by absolutely anyone!! There are many tools and techniques to create positive change and manifest the outcome of your desire. A large portion of the how we think is attributed to how one views situations and what one says to themselves.
Example- Which would you prefer to say to yourself? ‘I am going to ace this interview. I am confident and prepared’. OR ‘How… Continue

Blimey, recruitment can be a tough business can't it! The last year or so has been a real challenge and having seen the use of recruitment agencies decline over the last 10 years (proportionately) - despite the overall growth in the market up to 2008 - its been on our minds that their must be a better way.
Given our business model hasn't changed since I popped out of the womb 40+ years ago I'm convinced it is time for change. For sure, continuing to try and compete in our existing… Continue

The Google Buzz is yet another innovative creation of Google in response to Twitter and Facebook. How is it better? Well, firstly it has the convenience of, quite literally, being right there in your Gmail Inbox. Secondly, conversations are threaded and can also be made in private but most importantly, it doesn’t have a word limit like Twitter does.
You own your content, choose and filter how you want to see your messages and it doesn’t crowd your inbox with notifications.… Continue

A recurrent theme in blog posts and Tweets is that job boards are dying. Usually this is coupled with a prediction that they’ll be replaced by social media or Google. The popularity of this subject, in turn, spawns two questions:
- Why is this such a popular topic?
- Are job boards really dying?
Why is this such a popular topic?… Continue

As more and more traditional, full-time jobs disappear, more and more people will find work as soloists (freelancers, independent contractors, etc.). As a result, a funny thing happens to companies: they become much more dynamic and fluid. Instead of spending a large amount of time and resources finding people with a perfect set of skills, contacts, and experience, companies can solve their immediate needs by contracting with individuals, small firms, and boutiques.
Consider the… Continue

Highly influential Boards such as those at GE and Google have always kept talent development in mind when looking at long-term strategy. The Boards of these companies have relevant expertise, but most importantly they have access to several key line managers (the succession pipeline) who provide the raw data needed to construct a long-term strategy. HireLabs study of a recent McKinsey survey has revealed a few very interesting facts about how more and more Boards are actively… Continue

No get No getting away from it, your CV is a sales document. Instead of typing the words ‘Curriculum Vitae’ or ‘CV’ at the top, put in ‘Why You Should Hire Me...’ and see how you write it. There’s little point just creating a list of duties or responsibilities; you will not get hired solely because of what you have done, but more because of what you have achieved within those… Continue
