Why Your Recruiter Branding Matters!

Much has been said (and to my chagrin), about recruiters who are money hungry, blood sucking, pieces of …well you get the point. I would like to believe that recruiters love what they do and genuinely look out for the best interest of their candidates. After all, we’re all in this business to better the careers and quality of lives of people, right? A little money earned by recruiters doesn’t hurt…

A Second Look at the One-Way Interview

Failing to follow up - stop wasting business opportunities

Does the following sound familiar to you?

“I met this great person at an event last night, we got on really well, and they are about to instruct an advisor to do what we do, but the opportunity just didn’t come up to ask the question”.

What a wasted…

Can You Quiet the Difficult Co-Worker and Not Lose Your Job?

Almost all of us at one time or another has had to deal with that one co-worker you just wanted to give a little smack upside the head.

Be it their attitude, a habit that just got under your skin or constantly listening to them moan and complain about the professional and personal lives, it is safe to say that you likely have contemplated if time in jail was worth relieving this individual of their suffering..... or your suffering as it may be.

That being said, how can you go…

There is more in you than you think

Two weeks ago I took my eldest son to the 2012 Year 7 Orientation Day at his new secondary school. All the kids and parents were milling around before the event started. There was an excited buzz in the air as students from many different primary schools checked out their future school-mates.


As I was waiting for the formalities to start, I was looking around the hall and noticed the school motto plastered across the wall: There is more in…

Is a Cover Letter for Social Media and IT Jobs Necessary?

Cover letters can be a great way to get your foot in the door at a company that you want to work for.  A cover letter is usually sent in the body of your email with an attached resume when applying for a job.  They tend to be of great importance in this stage of your job search because it highlights your qualifications, skills, and why you would be an asset for the company.  Career Columnist Eve Tahmincioglu, says that…

How Can I be A Sourcers' Apprentice?

This was a question asked of me earlier in the week. The answer is simple- you can’t. Everyone who has anything to do with sales, with recruiting, with dealing in relationships between staff and customers all have their own way of achieving the end result.  For them to use my moniker, they would have to take a really long walk in my shoes, and see things through my eyes.  I am fortunate to have really good people around me who respect my opinions and are extremely open with theirs. We…

A Sense of Identity...

Common names are a bitch. I should know as I have one, and have spent the majority of my adult life saying "I'm sorry, thats not me" or "I rented what?? I don't think so.." An interesting fact is some people look to common names as a badge of anonymity;  that the more obscure the name, the more you stand out as an individual.  This of course, can't be further from the truth. Individuality is what you make of it because its the individual who makes the mark, not the name.  How many of us have…

The Marcus Effect: Finding Satisfaction and Value in any Job

How does one find value in their job? That is a question that has been studied, analyzed and reported on for hundreds of years. As the scope and look of jobs change, the variables of work change, but the one

common denominator will always be the same: You/Employee/Associate/Team


Is value measured by ROI? Is it measured by your salary? Perhaps by the performance results in your assessment? For some it is a commission check while others find value…
