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.
However, it’s worth remembering that people can lose a job as quickly and easily as finding one, and companies don’t need much of an excuse to get rid of employees who aren’t living up to… Continue

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… Continue

Over the last few years, many state and local legislatures have passed laws mandating that employers enroll in the E-Verify Program in order to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. On January 1, 2013, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Tennessee will join the many states that now… Continue

There have been dozens of news stories and blog posts about the Federal Trade Commission's recent decision regarding a company called Social Intelligence and the practice of pre-employment screening of job applicants based on their digital activity. Many of these pieces are misleading, and most of them are misunderstood. Here's a link to my latest blog post, in which I strive to correct errors of both… Continue

Sad but true, earlier this year the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had to hold a public hearing because of a disturbing trend: several companies, nationwide, had been excluding unemployed applicants from hiring consideration. Their ads specifically stated that they would only consider employed job candidates, using phrases like “No unemployed candidates will be considered at all” and “Client will not consider/review anyone NOT currently employed, regardless of the reason.”

We all come from an interesting place
As a whole, those of us within the profession come from many backgrounds. From what I have read and the data I have seen, very few of us within Human Resources come from a background of finance, accounting, operations or business administration. While not a fairytale, it is rare to see. This is… Continue

I've come to the conclusion that most of life is just like dating--the job search, climbing the corporate ladder, or working as a consultant. Generally speaking in life everyone is out to make a connection, a sale, more money, or their soul mate. The law of attraction is widely accepted and thought of in a romantic context. And since most business relationships require a form of emotion, attraction,… Continue

There are no secrets, it is simple as Believing, Acting and Receiving.
Babies use it all the time, you used it all the time growing up, and now you think it will not work for you because you are an adult?
The Law of Attraction (LOA) has been around for eternity and will continue to be here until the end of all energy.
Whether you believe it or not, it’s working in your life right now.
Now, in it’s most simplest form, the LOA works like… Continue

There are times in your life when you have a dawning of realization, a flash of insight - as though a veil of ignorance is parted and you see the naked truth for what it is. Sometimes these little nuggets of meaningfulness will impact you for the rest of your life. Other times, they are simple life truths that you will incorporate into your knowledge bank and draw on these items almost daily as you negotiate the twisty turny phenomenon that we call living. And then there are the moments of… Continue

As I was preparing for my upcoming week, I got an email that made my world. My very first dream candidate has materialized before my virtual eyes.
This candidate isn't a dream candidate because he attended a top 15 law school. He isn't a dream candidate because he graduated from this top law school with excellent grades. Nor is he a wonderful candidate because he went to work for one of the most prestigous law firms in New York. Although the credentials are enough to make most… Continue

I am going to state from the begining that this blog, or as they say in legal land, "blawg", will be more of a train of thought. My apologies from the start. I usually write my blogs in Word and then copy the blog to the posting site. However, this blog was screaming to get out. I think it has something to do with my new self reflection approach to life.
As a legal recruiter, I am sitting back and trying not to panic at the state of the legal market. The talk of major New York… Continue

There is an Allstate commercial that starts with Dennis Haysbert, who starred as President David Palmer on the critically acclaimed “24” and now heads up the cast of “The Unit”, saying “we may not be in a recession, but it sure feels like one.” Well, I would like to rephrase that quote to say, “we may not be in a recession, but the legal market is responding as though we are, and thus we must act accordingly.”
In the hallways of the top law firms, in the bar study courses across the… Continue

Just know what you’re choosing. When I first learned about the law of attraction, it was from my coach Jeanna Gabellini, and it was before The Secret came out. While I highly enjoyed the movie The Secret, it was only an introduction to the work of the law of attraction; and there is a lot more to it. In my conversations with recruiters, staffing people, men and women about the job and about life; it seems, at times as if people are confused about what the law is and how to make it really work… Continue
