However, it seems that more and more, employers are finding out that this line of thinking is outdated, and often times, misguided.…Continue

Each month, the New York City metro area consistently outnumbers all other metros in hiring demand. In March, there were more than 437,000 ads available online in the greater New York area.

It was 1997 and I was working at a staffing agency. We were celebrating the year end and we were headed to the dog tracks in Selma, Texas on a chartered bus. There was alcohol, and everybody was getting loud and crazy. We had had a long year and two recruiters had just been promoted to account managers. …Continue
On December 31st, I returned to my desk at work for a short day that would see me set up several interviews, coordinate with my more active hiring managers, and still have enough time to take a moment and breathe.
In the previous week I had enjoyed some very interesting and fun AIRS training provided by the Right Thing, an ADP company where I now work having joined them less than 6 months ago.
The whirlwind end to 2012 caught me and made me just dwell on some…Continue

I needed a chance to collect my thoughts, with so much crowding in in the holiday season, with work busier than ever, and with family holiday moments seizing the stage, one must remember why they do things - and what drives us forward in our careers.
It is in this journey where you find the greatest relief, the greatest lessons, and the greatest outcomes and achievements. Staffing isn't just about filling jobs, and having family isn't just about having relationships. …Continue

Tuesday after a long weekend, and I hope today, all is well. One of the more interesting things about long weekends (besides the copious amounts of food!) is that it allows most of us to hit the cosmic "reset" button and re-focus the way we approach work. Simply having a couple of extra days to mentally work through your problems, especially now that we are moving into the Christmas period, allows for a re-dedication of both mind and body to…Continue

Welcome Back! Nice to see that last week moved some of you Socialytes enough to give me another look. I plan on returning to 10 Key Customer Service Traits later (possibly starting next week); however today I thought a little discussion of how to start properly at the new gig might be in order. Lets think on this for a couple of minutes: You…Continue

In recent weeks, most of the immediate universe seemed to be focused on iPhone® 5 mania. Like some combination Superbowl and holy pilgrimage, I watched with a bit of disbelief while once again hordes of people camped out behind snaking steel barricades to be among the first to possess the newest iteration of this Apple icon.
As someone drawn to branding and marketing, I was impressed by the cadre of aggressive and…Continue

As I pulled the bow string back I let fly the arrow that found it's mark…Continue

If you look back in time, maybe around 40+ years ago, employees found a job within a company and were expected to stay with that same company for their entire career in exchange for a pension and a gold watch or pen. Now times have changed dramatically, most people have 5-8 career changes in their lifetime.
So now employees are faced with a new decision, how to determine when to leave their current job. This may…Continue
A career change is a life altering decision and should be properly thought through and planned. It can mean a complete transition to a new job, a new employer or a new industry. If a person chooses to change career direction, for example they have been in …Continue

Two New Jersey State Senators have introduced a similar bill barring employment of unauthorized workers and requiring all employers in the state to use the Federal government's E-Verify employment eligibility verification system. Republican Senators Robert Singer and Steven Oroho have introduced…Continue

1. Cold Calls. If you are cold calling me from any company that rhymes with Blobert Blaf or similar companies, call me from your mobile because I can see your company on my caller ID. Expect me to still blow you off, but call me in 6 months to show me you made it. We may talk then.…Continue
