Technology is changing the way we do almost everything, and it seems that job interviews are no exception. With the advent of Skype and other Internet video tools, video interviewing is supplementing, and in some cases replacing, the traditional in-person job interview process.
But is it right for you and your clients? You may want to consider the following pros and cons before deciding:…Continue

One of the beauties of contract placements is that they happen FAST. Often interviews are conducted over the phone, and the contractor is at work within in a matter of days rather than the weeks or even months it can take with direct hires.
But don't let the quick nature of contract placements cause you or your clients to overlook legal interviewing techniques. According to attorney Lisa Yankowitz, one staffing company learned this the hard way, settling a disability…Continue

In a sales interview, when asked, "What percentage of budget did you achieve in the last measurable year?" often the answer is, “100%”. Look at the leader-board in any sales organisation and a very small portion of the team is actually…Continue

Early February I posted a blog entry called “To Video or Not to Video? Resume video’s are they going to help or hinder?” and it sure did get some feedback.

In a recent HR magazine called “Network” that is distributed through Alberta there was a story posted about an interview appointment gone wrong. I had to read the story about three times over before I could believe what I read. My question is, have candidates really degraded to this level of foolishness?
I always worry if I am doing the right thing by telling a candidate not only are they interviewing for an opening but so is our second submittal.

But are we really hurting ourselves when we are making ourselves look good?
More recently, this has happened repeatedly, I have had 2 of my own candidates up for the same job. They knew about each other. They…Continue
