The Intimidating Hiring Manager and The Bad Candidate Experience That Results

I have had a few of these types of managers in the past - the types that for some reason intimidate and belittle the candidate even before the interview begins OR within the interview goes so far south in the way they question the candidate. Where the interview becomes more like a Sopranos Mob Inquisition, or almost like an FBI interrogation that the candidate is ready to throw in the towel before the interview even completes. 

Let me warn you now - I will say this with all due…

How a Comments/Chat Section Makes Your "Recruiting SEO" Explode

Ongig believes that one day all job pages will have live interactivity such as a comments/chat feature.

First off, it’s a great experience for the candidate — they get their questions answered (questions that often aren’t answered in a standard job posting).

But it’s great for internal recruiters too — especially for search engine optimization (SEO). Hundreds of candidates Google you and your team and jobs and the more content/text there is on your…

Smarter Employees or Impatient Brats?

The adoption of the new social media platforms by many employees is of great concern to IT leadership across the country.  New technologies can be easily utilized by employees most usually at the expense of the enterprise security, but that is very often not spoken about.  I read continuously about the smarter employee, the better employee, etc… yet find little information discussing the enterprise effect of such adoption.  Social media though important does not offer the large benefit or…

Do You Really Want This Job?

 

 

I must say this is one of the best lines I have read in a long time and such a forgotten trait of an experienced manager looking for the best people.  Take a look at this: Before Selling Candidates on the Job Sell them out of the Job.  Bottom line - I love it.  Professionally it has been a method employed in my own tool box for over a decade and it…

Things worth doing are worth doing now.

I heard that if you have a goal, you should never say that you're going to start it sometime in the future. Don't say, "I'll start that tomorrow morning" or "I'll do that after ____" because it creates a sense of non-urgency in your subconscious. If you can put it off for awhile, why bother doing it at all? If you want to achieve something, fully commit by taking the first step RIGHT NOW.

Looking For Honesty and Integrity in Dallas IT Consulting Companies

I was in IT for several years before being laid off a few years ago. I was laid off right before September 11, 2001 and was working on my MBA in eCommerce at the time. I found myself in a very difficult situation as many other people did during that time. Because I was working on my MBA and was almost finished, companies I interviewed with considered me 'over-qualified' for most positions I applied and interviewed for.
