Some of you will be aware that I am not shy of bemoaning the fact that there are so many poor job posts littering the online space. You only have to visit a job board and pick a few ads at random to find cut & pasted job descriptions, phrases like "Our client are looking", hideous…Continue
When we think about our work life, we fundamentally want to be happy. Studies have shown that performance and job satisfaction (“happiness”) go hand in hand in making an organization successful. Associate Professor of Organizational Psychology at Yale University, Amy Wrzesniewski, discovered that people have one of three…Continue

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

I was speaking to a company owner last week who let me know he spent over $125,000 a year in job postings on major job boards. I was FLOORED! When I asked him about the quality of the candidates he got from those ads, he said that he received average or less-than-average candidates but that “I use it for the…Continue

As soon as you drop some words in a job interview a light bulb can spring from nowhere and give a signal to the interviewer that you are already not the right person...every word counts!

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

For as long as I can remember (probably as long as they've been in existence) one way I've kept tabs on the job market and trends in general is through active job alerts from various job boards.
I know, #NerdAlert right?

I clicked on a…Continue

Even seasoned recruiters and HR professionals have trouble occasionally with interviews. In my position, I see lots of behind the scenes data about interviewing, particularly screening…Continue
