9 Top Online Resume Resources

I keep everything online from my music to my bills and everything in between. I have practically my life online. Including my resume. I recently asked a candidate if they had a link to their online resume…allI got was silence. No stuttering, no excuses –just silence. My guess is they didn’t know there could be such a…

Passion...... you gotta love it

Hi, my name's Dan, and I'm quickly becoming an addict for certain varieties of Reality TV shows. No, not the grab the spotlight, Big brother wankfests of the worlds. But the talent show ones. Maybe I'm getting softer as I'm getting older, but how can you watch people hunting and catching their dreams, their passions and not be moved by it.



Sure there is the "look at me, look at me" contestants who just want their heads on TV, and yes, everyone in line will say that, that particular… Continue

Keep the Performance Review, Trash the Bad Manager

For years there have been arguments for and against the performance review. There are many who diss the process, wanting to get rid of the actual review itself. There are others who feel it is a bedrock of information for both employee development, self checks, collecting historical data on the employee and as a way to evaluate the way a manager simply manages.



The performance review can be bad but it can also be great.

Idiots lay blame solely on a tool

The Recruited Talent Social Media Strategy

Lately there have been spirited conversations in the recruitment world pertaining to the viability of social media as the replacement solution for job boards and traditional recruitment models. Basically the internet has a very wide reach and has become socially interactive, but most recruiters disagree as to which strategy is best for recruiting top talent. To add to that debate, many from the old school of recruiting have argued that relationship building remains the key in connecting…

Talent is King

By Rob Segall





Talent is the lifeblood of innovation. A company that truly believes talent makes the difference will thrive even in the harshest of

economies. Ask Cisco. Ask HP. Better yet, ask Apple.



When the dotcom bubble burst at the end of 2000, Apple took advantage of the rarest of opportunities and went on a hiring spree. While

companies were folding, downsizing, and freezing hiring tickets, Apple…

The honest recruiter

I had a baby recently; with that in mind I may have gained a few extra pounds which has taken me out of my normal clothing size into one I would rather not divulge at this time.

Recently I saw a top online and tried to order it via the phone, the very kind and brutally honest saleswoman explained that it does not come in such a large size and she couldn’t help me (serves me right for trying to buy designer when I should stick with the high street). Although the message was delivered… Continue

The Need for Speed

‘I feel the need…the need for speed’ (Tom Cruise, Top Gun 1986)



Whatever artistic merits ‘Top Gun’ may possess, there is little doubt that it remains an iconic 80s movie, with a number of quotable lines, not least the one above. With the ‘greed is good’ business decade well and truly in full swing by 1986 there was little doubt that speed was intoxicating. Everything needed to go faster, to happen quicker, from the time it took your car to accelerate to the length of wait for… Continue

Candidates with polished resumes or Candidates without resumes BUT has experience....

Recruiter 1: "I cant present this - this resume is garbage. This is a very good client of mine and I cant afford to screw up!".



Recruiter 2: "Even though his resume is garbage, he does know your competitors and he does belong to xyz association and he does deal directly with your client's competitors and he is eager to talk to your client. What more do you want?"

Help me, help you

Asking for help during a job search is a two-way street. You need to be specific about what you are looking for, and you need to make sure that the person you are requesting assistance from can actually help you. I’ve found that most people will help someone if they are able to and the request is specific.

Unfortunately many people forget the basics in a job search when asking others for…
