You shined in your interviews and landed a new job! The interviews you went on were your first and only time to make a great first impression on important people at the company. Since you were offered the job, they clearly had a great first impression of you! Now it’s important that you maintain that.
We've all had one (or two, ok maybe more!) - the dreaded job we have come to hate. You feel sick at the thought of going to work, you can't wait for your holidays and when it gets really bad, you can't sleep at night.
So why do we do it?
Why do we stay at a job we hate? There are a multitude of reasons, from things like:
Welcome to 2011!! It's the start of a new year and if one of your New Years resolutions is that you've decided it's time for a career change then you'll want to give yourself the best chance of finding secure employment!

I have developed my skills in recruitment and sales through quite a few technological changes and started in recruitment with a Rolodex and some applicant cards (we now call them candidates!). We have been introduced to that wonderful piece of technology called the database or if you are really into your terminology I think the today's trendy description would be a CRM or Customer Relationship… Continue

So you've recruited that brand new recruiter or staffing assistant to join your corporate recruiting team. If you've done your job right, they will come with all or most of the skills and experience necessary to be successful at your company. However, there is a wealth of information that they will need. No matter where they have worked before, they will need to understand all your processes, procedures, policies, and most of all the structure of your organization. What is…
It is NEVER too late for a career change! Sure, you might not have direct experience in a certain industry or job, but you need to prove to any hiring manager that your existing skills are, in fact, transferable skills.
If you’re debating about making a career change, don’t be afraid. Even if a career switch later in life seems like a completely radical change with many possible consequences attached to it, you should still go for it if it’s something you really…
We all know about helicopter parents – those nuts who start off doing their kids' homework and end up filling out their job applications – but what about helicopter managers? I don’t mean micro-managers who follow their team members around breathing down their necks. I mean the supervisors who fail to realize that it’s their job to develop the leadership skills of their staff; who hold onto every task that requires collaboration or decision making for themselves rather than… Continue

Happy 2010! With the turn of a new year and decade, many people set resolutions which commonly revolve around fitness and health. I, like everyone else, have a few of those, but have also been thinking about my career goals and what I would like to accomplish professionally in 2010.
In the last year the business world continued its exposure on social networking sites such as Twitter and… Continue
Here are my top 10 resolutions for all the tweeters I know:
1. People – DO NOT put “Please RT” in your tweets. If it is interesting, I will RT. If it is interesting and you ask me to RT, I won’t cause that’s just how I am.
