The moving target that is the job Description!!

Not Your Typical Millennial

By this time, we’ve all heard about the Millennial generation or Gen Y.  We know about Helicopter Parents (or worse, Blackhawk parents), entitlement issues, and the fact that they’re all what we’d consider “digital natives.”  Yep – Gen Y has never known the world without the internet.  We’re different than any other generation.  Yes, you heard me right.  We.  I’m a Millennial too. …

Sourcing through Facebook: From “Nah” to “Yeah!”

“Facebook and Sourcing?  Nah…”

The debate about Facebook’s revolutionary role in online sourcing rages on.  Some recruiters, citing the site’s reputation as a purely social networking site, claim that its informal atmosphere seemingly precludes any serious professional networking (a niche filled by LinkedIn).  Simply put, they say, Facebook users log-on to have fun, not to look for jobs.  

 

On the contrary.  As a corporate recruiter,…

Interviewing is a 2 way street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interviewing is a 2 way street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Most staffing professionals, hiring managers, and others who do interviews seem to be under a misunderstanding as it relates to interviewing. They feel that they are doing the interviewing and that is all. They do not realize that the candidate is interviewing us as well.

 

When you are interviewing a candidate the candidate is taking mental notes of everything said,…

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!

 

I have done several postings on reporting and on matrices. In all of them I stress the importance of not using the stats alone to make decisions. The reason for that is because stats alone do not tell you the whole story. It is imperative you understand the WHY’s behind the numbers. If not you will fall into the hidden land mind that these reports and matrices create. You will make choices based on half…

‘Managing Forward’ Series Part I: Advice on Managing Young Professionals

I had a great student job when I was in college.  I had the pleasure of working in the SUNY Geneseo College Student Union and working for a great mentor, Chip Matthews, Union Director.  I often lean on the learnings and advice I received from Chip, and wanted to know how he was doing since I left (I am sure the place is falling down without me!).  I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss the topic of managing college students with Chip Matthews.  What…
