Common Misconceptions about Recruiter’s Mind

If You Are A High-Achiever But Somehow Frustrated In A Big Business…Read On

Maybe you’re in the wrong type of company, or more appropriately, maybe your competencies are better suited to a business of another size. One of my first questions to candidates is whether they consider themselves a big or a small-company person. It’s difficult to explain but a lot of people are quite rightly attracted to the branding and apparent success of larger businesses, and might think the question is there to catch them out.

If You Don’t Want My Advice…

Why did you ask?

My husband has a love / hate relationship with my career choice. Always has. I’ve been a recruiter longer than I’ve been Mrs. Ala, so this is not new to him. In fact, at one point early in our relationship I was THE go to recruiter in his field. People would slip him resumes on job sites and ask for my phone number after meetings. It’s not easy being married to me, and that was before all this social recruiting / LinkedIn / Facebook / blogging stardom. Poor Mr.…

You're Fired! 10 Things That'll Get You The Sack

When looking at, and indeed writing about career advice, it’s easy to focus on the positives; finding a job, getting a job, doing well in an interview and how to impress when you start.

Facebook Fails

number of international speakers to attend. One of whom was Ryan Kahn, host of MTV's HIRED program (@hired). Ryan spoke very well about the engagement of the Millennial's and it did strike a chord with me that we are…

Generalization Fatigue

Generalizations are stupid.

There. I just made one. Now doesn’t that sound silly? You’re probably thinking “aww, come on Amy! It’s usually true!” Yeah maybe, but it’s exhausting. I have been diagnosed with Generalization Fatigue. Symptoms range from eye-rolling, head banging, and groaning to slamming laptops closed in order to protect yourself from one more crappy prediction about the fate of recruiting. Here are some of my favorites:

DON'T TELL ME WHAT YOU CAN'T DO; TELL ME WHAT YOU CAN

The president of our company and I were recently invited to attend a keynote given by one the 50 most influential people in business internationally and I could go on and on with all their credits  but will reframe. She was asked what bit of information she would pass on to someone just getting started. I could give you her answer but that was not the point of this post.

The more I thought about her speech the more I thought how there is really little difference in those at the top…

Frustration...

So in the course of any one day I get a stack of emails from people that seemingly have no idea how/why to apply for a role in the creative industry.

Normally it’s cool, I’m polite and reply with a, “thanks but no thanks…” sort of thing, trying to offer a piece of advice where and when I can. But occasionally, towards the end of a long day, I don’t. And I write something like this:

“Dear *****…

Just Walk Away...

I know we have all felt it, and I know we have all ignored it. I am referring to the feeling of a candidate we should just walk away from.  We have put in all the work, and put ourselves in a point of no return. …
