Recruiting: Darwinism or Creationism?

In full disclosure, I’m a huge geek. In 99 out of 100 opportunities on any given night, I’ll watch anything that is on the NatGeo or History Channels before I watch any of that mindless drivel of reality TV.

Why Candidates Who Have Worked In Hell Always Work Out! By Kris Dunn

Memory Triggered:  When a credible candidate has worked in an absolute hell-hole where no one likes them, their organization or what they represent, guess what?  They’re probably going to kick #$$ in your company, because your piddly little troubles and drama actually look appealing to them.   They’re battle tested. They’ve been in the depths of hell, and your company’s not hell – it’s just El Paso in the summer.

Background: I used to be a Regional VP…

What end of the talent pool are you in?

It is sink or swim out in the job market today. Whether laid-off or gainfully employed, I often ask my candidates about their key motivation during a job search – these are the top four answers:



1. A new career path



2. Better/Fair compensation



3. Reached a career plateau



4. Feel unappreciated



Another seemingly irrelevant question I ask is the following: What is the biggest misconception your peers have about you?

So where are you in your career? Do you… Continue
