What are you willing to do to make your resume stand apart from the pack? Would you plaster your face on a giant billboard? Drop off your application in costume? In many lines of work, creativity gets you points. However, it’s important not to go overboard.
To make your resume…

Only about 0.9% of the population holds a doctoral degree, and because that degree does not come without the completion of a dissertation, it means that everyone with that degree has a very specific skill set:

Almost exactly one year ago, my husband and I adopted our little fur baby from the local animal shelter. We both grew up with pets, but this was our first (and only child) together as a couple. Our sweet guy, Hurley, immediately became a part of our family and dramatically influenced our official new lifestyle as doggie people.
As his one year adoption anniversary approached, I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate how much love and enjoyment he has brought our…Continue

Let’s face it. As a recruiter, you’re out there on the front lines, rolling up your sleeves to source, screen and slate the top talent on the market. You’re able to do whatever it takes to find that always elusive purple squirrel, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all…Continue
Companies with a diverse workforce perform better. A 2009 study by McKinsey shows a connection between gender diversity and financial performance of a company: a company in which the management is gender diverse (more than 30% women in top management of the company), for example, had a 53 % better EBIT margin. So far so good.
So how do you get a more diverse workforce? Well, you probably already know it: it all depends on fair personnel selection. Fairness…Continue

Recruiters are consistently pushed to shorten the time it takes to find and recruit new talent. In spite of such pressures, current average time-to-hire is the highest it’s been since 2009, and time-to-hire is only getting longer. The job market is better than it was 5 years ago. Even with more job openings, it still takes too long to bring on a new hire. What is the current …Continue

Asking the right questions in a job interview is not easy. Sure there are numerous lists with interview questions, but how can you be sure they fit the job requirements? You can’t. A wonderful counter example would be the question we all know: "…Continue

As we approach the end of 2014, I wanted to share with you an interesting trend in hiring demand this year. While many times we think that the competition for talent is in populous areas - like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and the Silicon Valley - we found that hiring grew significantly more in smaller, less…Continue
