Good news for all you Apple-loving, HR folks!

At Wowzer, since we love video, we love Vine. Vine does for video what Twitter did for blogging: helps people share glimpses of their lives in a minimalist format so that it's fast to create and fast to watch. But is Vine good for presenting yourself to prospective employers?
Vine videos are limited to 6 seconds; they're short, interesting and usually pretty fun to watch, in part because lots of clever users have…Continue

They say timing is everything. Nothing illustrated this more than when I entered a hall full of networkers today, and a woman I had never met approached me before I even put my dollar in the contribution jar. It was as if she came out of nowhere like a dive-bombing sparrow from the sky.

Let’s face it, when you’re looking for a job, you want it as fast and as easy as you can get it. It can be overwhelming and time-consuming searching for a job. It’s true that you likely won’t land an interview, or job for that matter, without actually applying for job openings (unless they come through…Continue

Earlier this week I read an article in my favourite online magazine which shocked me… A quick caveat though would be to say I fully endorse social media in all its greatness, it’s my day job (so best I do) but I realised maybe I/we need to remember the appropriateness of our actions.
Here are some of the extracts that shocked me, more because I can relate to them so closely:
“A survey conducted by Curry's and PC World found that 53 per cent of respondents admitting to…Continue

Two years ago I attended the Annual Carolinas Payroll Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC. As a vendor my role was to raise awareness for my organization and discussion potential career opportunities we had for a client implementation. The next morning at 9:45 AM, I was approached by the conference coordinator and asked if I could step in and do a 45 minute presentation given that one of the…Continue
Why don’t more people Network? It boggles my mind, especially in this type of economy – it is not who applies to the job first, BUT who…Continue

If that got your attention, good. I don’t know any other way to say it; I hate it when people talk too much. This is a personal issue of mine, a lack of tolerance, perhaps; but mind-numbing talking can affect one’s job search and performance/acceptance at work.
Networking events: When you’re at…Continue
On March 24th Bob McIntosh posted a blog titled “80% of today’s jobs are landed through networking.” The article was well articulated and discussion ensued that pulled at the very fabric of what networking is, how to use it, how important it is, and how is it defined. Some astute readers identified a lack of support for the statistics as a perpetuating concern (strong ideas Karen and Sandra); others identified the notion of causality (excellent point Kyle). The question really…Continue
According to a report from ABC News, 80% of today’s jobs are landed through networking. This percentage of networkers represents smart jobseekers who understand that looking for and finding work takes...work.
They understand that personal networking coupled with online networking will yield better…Continue

Sitting at your computer searching those job boards is one thing, but what are you doing about your face-to-face job search?
Networking is a huge part of keeping yourself out there. Whether you’re looking for a job or not, it’s very important to stay in touch with other professionals…especially the ones in your field!

I just realized my last blog post was about 3 years ago. Titled Social Networking and Jobs Board. IF you think about it – 3 years ago, there was very, very little or none SN elements on any job board. All this Branch Out, Be Found and clones like Talent me have happened in the last 12 months actually. I wrote about in in 2008!
The fact that I am still working on the same…Continue

Like most sequels, this is not as good as the original, but I hope this is a better sequel than Revenge of the Nerds II. Please read #4 first if you are pressed for time.
