CVs need to grab the attention of employers immediately, so don't be fooled into thinking that you've got the time or space to detail non-important information. Your CV needs to be well-written and to the point - here's what to cut.
Don't even consider starting on that third page. If you've not convinced an employer to give you an interview after several hundred words, then it's extremely unlikely that the third page…Continue

I don't know about anyone else out there, but I have not been receiving any quality applications from my job postings. Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily rely on these postings 100% of the time for candidates, but I expect to get a few keepers out of them.

I have always thought that most staffing agencies could use their own job board. Today I discovered the Jobspring Partners website. Its a combination job board and company site that really showcases their open technology rec's.
Their design is top notch, and they use the homepage as the job board piece showcasing jobs in an easy to read format. The color scheme is simple and powerful. They make great use of their social…Continue

Earlier this week I posted a few profile-enhancing tips on a LinkedIn discussion group frequented by active job seekers.

What a rough few weeks. You've probably heard a couple of things about me lately – I lost a friend / colleague, and I changed jobs. After nearly two years as a corporate recruiter for Zones, responsible for just about every department outside of sales, I left. Coming on the heels of a death in our department, it was especially hard to say goodbye.
The past month has been full of difficult conversations. I was not actively looking for a new role. Some might even call me a passive…Continue

As we all know, work isn’t somewhere that people generally enjoy going to but it shouldn’t be somewhere that we completely hate being at. Your work is a huge part of life so if you don’t enjoy going there, then you’re not going to be happy in any other aspect of your life. Did you know that about a third of your life is spent working!
