The Economic Mt. Everest: 3rd Quarter Analysis

Earlier this year, I analyzed what I called the Economic Mt Everest. I find it interesting to keep an eye out on very key economic indicators. The economy has certainly been a challenge for many, with frustrated job seekers seeking assistance.

It has been a very interesting time. There are some interesting statistics that both…

Reaching your Recruiting Apex: What it will take to succeed in Life and Business

This was the sign that greeted me on July 1st, 2010, as I reached one the crown jewels of my vacation. I was headed to a family reunion, that would propel me through Yosemite, and onward to Lake Tahoe. It was in Yosemite I had a chance to remember when as a young man, of 10, that visit that had changed my life. I had at that time had the privilege of a Memorial Day weekend trip with my family. On this day, I was on a journey to greet my wife…

Would you wear the same pair of pants for the rest of your life?

There always seems to be that one person at work that you just can’t stand to deal with, let alone before you have grabbed at least 2 cups of coffee in the morning! They are toxic and cancerous to the office atmosphere seemingly seeking to destroy any ounce of hope and suck out all of the joy that you may have!

Believe it or not, there are ways to survive working with these characters, keep your sanity and still…

Celebrating Your Career Independence

Like most of you, I spent this past weekend relaxing, catching up on some long-neglected chores and between periods of light showers and heavy rain, enjoying some traditional July 4th fare, hotdogs, apple pie and lemonade.

I did give some thought about the reason for our celebration. I think many of us,…

How can employers make themselves relevant to Gen Y?

Employers need to think big about how they are going to showcase their organisational culture and people to draw in, attract, and retain the next wave of high potential talent. While baby boomers still firmly rule the roost in the workplace, a new generation of graduates are emerging with a different set of influences and cultural reference points.

These graduates have grown up with technology around them, and thus have a different set of expectations from the world they interact… Continue

If you are not turning into an expert you’re in trouble. The generalist is dead.

For many years I wondered what the real difference was between being good and being great. How do you clearly define it? What is it that puts a person or an organization at a different level than the rest? And I did read Jim Collins’ book which addresses the subject but I got my simple answer in a Homer Simpson DUH! moment watching TV. (How else do you achieve a Homer Simpson DUH! moment?) Ironically it was a General Motors…

In Every Dream Job...A Heartache?

“Such a shame, it’s my absolute dream job but I just don’t feel that I can stay”

How often do recruiters hear that?

A candidate said that to me last week. In this case, her problem was her boss...try as she might she found it impossible to have a harmonious working relationship and efforts to work through this had failed. She wants the bits of the jobs that she enjoys – challenge, responsibility, flexibility – but in another environment.

She’s not the first,… Continue

Utilizing Networking in Your Career

By Pat Meehan

Building a network over a lifetime is the most accountable thing we can do. It is the epitome of being a proactive person. Day by day, we build on this chain of meaningful personal relationships to which we can exchange the gifts of our ideas and influence. We should value these relationships and put great trust in them as they continue to develop. Stephen Covey teaches that a relationship is like an “emotional bank account.” We must nurture this emotional bank…
