3 Steps To A Resume That Gets Results

1. Be prepared to show how your personal brand is different.

“It’s important to understand what it is you can contribute professionally that no one else can,” Weinbaum said. “Identify one of your skills, and elaborate it; make it something you are an expert at.”

But what do you do if your boss doesn’t provide you with the opportunity to do that? Take things into your own hands.

Dear Recruiter, You're On The Wall of Shame

Dear recruiter-



You're a jerk, ya know. This is the e-mail you send me, really? I honestly don't even know how you got my contact information or why in the world your CMS thought I might be interested in being a "supply executive."

Why Should I Use a 'Spammer' Like You as a Recruiter?

                                                  

I sometimes receive email from people who appear to have mental illness, asking the question: “Why would I use a spammer like you as a recruiter?”  Although this is clearly a loaded question, based on the false presumption of email contact by recruiters being ‘spam’, it does deserve an answer and provokes thought.

A blog about my dog (...and recruiting)

Almost exactly one year ago, my husband and I adopted our little fur baby from the local animal shelter. We both grew up with pets, but this was our first (and only child) together as a couple. Our sweet guy, Hurley, immediately became a part of our family and dramatically influenced our official new lifestyle as doggie people.

As his one year adoption anniversary approached, I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate how much love and enjoyment he has brought our…

Employment Brand: Must Be Educated For A Job On Our Ignorant Team

For as long as I can remember (probably as long as they've been in existence) one way I've kept tabs on the job market and trends in general is through active job alerts from various job boards.

I know, #NerdAlert right? 

Whether I'm looking or not, I periodically look at posted jobs that come through to see what's up, who's hiring, and of course wonder about the companies posting the same opening every few weeks or month after month. 

I clicked on a…

6 Screening Questions You ALWAYS Ask in an Interview

With the proliferation of articles out there on interviewing, you’d be tempted to assume that interviewing a new client is easy, or at least a skill that every hiring manager has down pat.

Free Download: Boolean Cheat Sheet for Beginners

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.

Should Recruitment Agencies Stop Worrying About Google Page Rankings?

I often comment about the reliance recruitment firms have on traditional sourcing strategies, but recently I’ve also noticed that website search engine optimisation (SEO) is also still perceived by a lot of agencies as being the most important form of branding outside of job boards.

I get this, it makes sense to have a high ranking website on Google so that people find you when they type in terms relating to your business. This blog isn’t focused on SEO but just quickly if you are…
