Call them purple squirrels or whatever you want, but finding candidates isn’t so easy. Your job is to find those (fill in whatever animal and color you want here), and to find them before they’re talking to someone else about another opportunity.

And you know the saying: "Time is money."
You need to be faster than the other…Continue

Once a year something magical happens. The world stops. Stores are closed, and when you go outside, you can hardly hear any traffic. I really look forward to this time of year every year.
The world is frantic. We are always in a hurry and there is always something to be done. Our lists are always long and it seems like there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done.
In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we often forget what the holiday season is all…Continue
The place was a bit of a shambles and just between you and me my boss was a patronising prick. He’d seemed so nice; so approachable … during the interview process. But from day one it was as if Dr Jekyll had left Mr Hyde alone in the…Continue

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
I titled this blog first Monday primarily so I would be forced into finishing it and publishing it today. I've been meaning to blog for months now, and still have several unfinished works in progress sitting in my RBC drafts. So, in the spirit of my new year commitment to blog weekly (and to test the theory that I work best under pressure), I figured I'd start this Monday Musings blog about nothing in particular and everything in general.
2012 was EPIC for me, both…Continue

Talk about a catch-22! Let’s use Sally, the average Nurse Practitioner (although there’s nothing average about NPs), as an example. She has been a nurse for many years and has been working on her MSN for quite a while. The happy day arives when she has earned her MSN. She then sits for her national certification and passes. She is so thrilled now because she is officially a certified Family Nurse Practitioner!
Sally’s job search now begins. She applies for every Family Nurse…Continue

So, how long does it take to find a new job? I have heard this question a lot over the past year.
The answer to this question is unknown as data, statistics and personal success is difficult to quantify when comparing the total population of people interviewing. Perhaps a better question would be “What can I do to improve my chances of finding a job as quick as possible”? or “What can I do to improve my chances of finding a job”?
Everyone has a different level of background,…Continue

What’s more important – having a good CV or a good cover letter…? The answer? Both! Cover letters are just as important as CVs because a good cover letter gets your CV through the door and a good CV then goes on to qualify you for an interview!
If you know anything about my background, you’ll know I fell into CV writing, cover letters and so on by accident while working in the media as the assistant editor of a magazine. Back then I had to recruit people (as well as everything else)…Continue
