HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

Isn’t it amazing how the simple beauty of the sun shining can change our outlook? After a long difficult winter I understand the phrase “hope springs eternal.”

It isn’t only the appearance of the sun that has raised my spirits. I took a stroll through the local mall this weekend and was encouraged to see the numbers of shoppers carrying bags of just purchased goods. This weekend I received a call from a friend who sold her house last week at a profit.

In addition, the staffing…

What goes inside a recruiters brain? A dilemma unraveled.

Recruitment is in itself a talent-detecting process, but what type of candidates would "hit the ground running"? and what type of headhunting detective are you?



In the planning process, the search for required candidates starts with a question in mind, should you start sourcing active candidates (who are actively searching for career opportunities), most probably because the active searchers are your lottery ticket to get a placement in the least amount of time! You think?…

The Clock and the Compass by Jon Bartos

Dear Candidate, I Love You

They're in your sights and now it's time to reel 'em in.

There is no better feeling for a recruiter than finding that perfect candidate (except maybe when they accept an offer). But sometimes that perfect person is working in some other office. How to get them to notice you?…

Resigning My Position As Career Coach of the Universe

You win, universe. I quit. I hereby resign as career coach helping the wayward un/under-employed. You know I feel a responsibility – a moral obligation, even – to help job seekers. I don’t mean candidates for my company – I mean job seekers who can do no more for me than say thank you. I just think it’s the right thing to do – to offer help and career guidance when and where I can. I've reviewed hundreds of resumes, mock interviewed candidates, edited LinkedIn profiles, made intros…

People don’t leave companies. They leave leaders!

I have employed thousands of people over the years. And every time one resigned, a little part of me died. (OK, I lie. I have actually danced a celebratory jig around my desk on the odd occasion, but that’s another blog!)

Mostly, my natural reaction has always been a human one I suppose. “What possible reason would they have to do that?” or “What’s wrong with them?” or even, “She must be leaving for money. The fool!”

But I grew wiser as the years rolled by.

Mostly,…

Wait

I have always been a fan of music.  I love all kinds.  I appreciate artists and their uniqueness.  I guess I have always been that way.  I can listen to Waylon Jennings "Ramblin' Man" one minute, "Kashmir" by Led Zepplin another, and then find myself dialed into XM Radio listening to The Highway all day…

Frustration...

So in the course of any one day I get a stack of emails from people that seemingly have no idea how/why to apply for a role in the creative industry.

Normally it’s cool, I’m polite and reply with a, “thanks but no thanks…” sort of thing, trying to offer a piece of advice where and when I can. But occasionally, towards the end of a long day, I don’t. And I write something like this:

“Dear *****…

Special Delivery: Who Ordered the Spam?

I was silently hoping that someone had finally sprayed enough insecticide on the pests that continue to propagate terrible job search advice. Alas, plenty of evidence of their insidious and obnoxious existence still emerges regularly.

There are a number of sources in my local area that sponsor workshops, seminars and other events directed at job seekers. From what I can tell, the vast majority of the sponsors and presenters have literally zero relevant background to justify providing…

“You Don’t Speak For Me” – A College Student’s Thoughts on Donglegate

My kid is home from college for spring break. It’s been an awesome week - when she’s not sleeping she’s actually hanging out with me. Inevitably the conversation turns to work stuff – recruiting for me, school work for her, and what the future holds now that’s she’s a grown up (sort of). I asked her what she thought of Donglegate. Ok, maybe not the best intro, she looked both confused and disturbed until I explained. For those that missed it, two guys at a tech conference made a bad joke and…
