Hooey. If you aren't familiar with this term, it's a nicer and friendlier way of calling "BS" on something or someone. It's when your words and your actions don't line up and your hypocrisy has been exposed. Such is the case with Recruiters. I am calling "hooey" on you today.
I have been in recruiting for around 10 years. During that time, I have interviewed and hired countless…Continue
What a presumptuous title, huh? Speaking from personal experience and observation, I have found that no matter what circumstance you find yourself in currently, if you look around you, you can almost always find someone else who is going through an even more difficult circumstance.

I fully recognize that I would not be where I am today without countless numbers of people who have invested a portion of their lives into mine. A great example would be a guy named Kenneth Johnson. I've never met him, but I attended a private school from 6th - 12th grades. My mom was working three jobs after having…Continue

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:
You’ve hear d it countless times: With the economic recovery crawling along in the slow lane job seekers need to prepare for a longer than expected search and consider new and innovative ways to differentiate. But how do you prepare for a longer than expected search when you don’t have any sense of how long it’s going to take in the first place, and how can…Continue

Do you ever look at the top headlines that appear on your LinkedIn homepage? No? Well, you really should!
The stories are collated from news websites around the world and are updated throughout the day. They tend to focus mainly on employment and the economy and are a wealth of information for…Continue

Any candidate in transition or working professional has most likely bumped into a recruiter at some point. Many executive recruiters often actively headhunt passive job candidates whom are currently employed. And if you are in the process of conducting an active job search, you have probably responded to an advertisement for a job opening placed on a jobs board by a recruiting firm. However, a well-thought-out, effective job search that covers all of the bases intentionally includes…Continue

I was browsing my LinkedIn Groups this morning, and a colleague shared this 60 Minutes segment in which she was spotlighted. I'm sure each of you knows someone who is talented, college-educated, life-experienced, and willing to work, but unable to secure employment.
What can we do - as advocates and stakeholders in the community of recruiting - to help? Even if it…Continue

Being a recruitment consultant means I am in contact with hundreds of people looking for work or looking for that exciting new career step every week. Most people seem to think all they need to do is send their CV to the agent and the job is done, well let me tell you it isn’t. Most Recruitment agencies don’t even recruit for 10 percent of the local vacancies, so the chances of you actually finding the right role through a recruitment agent are not as high as you would initially think. The…Continue

I was talking with a career counseling client the other day. He's a smart guy with a PhD and loads of great high tech experience. And still there were some basic things about his resume that were hurting him. So I got to thinking about that and wondering about how widespread this phenomenon is. As a corporate recruiter, you could say that I look at resumes for a living. I've got loads of experience reading resumes and I see all sorts of funny things each day. At least they would be funny if…Continue
