How to Become a Nurse Practitioner without Nursing Experience

Though there are many who aspire to be a nurse practitioner from their childhood and work towards it, there are a few who do not make it as a career choice until later in life.  The reasons for this may be because they had set their minds on other fields of health care or were drawn by a career option entirely…

How to cement your reputation as a dorkola recruiter

Here we go… another horrible example of the type of cold call/emails some recruiters are sending.

I’ve never heard of the recruiter that sent this - who according to their LI profile, has been an agency recruiter since 2008 and has a whopping 36 connections. I don’t recall having any prior interactions with their agency and don’t know how they have my email address. What I do know is this a one of the lamest messages I’ve seen in quite a while.

The email…

Salary Negotiation: Framing negotiables correctly to unlock hidden value.

One of my favorite negotiation anecdotes is from Stuart Diamond’s book Getting More.  In it, he describes a scenario where a child would like to have a cookie, but the parent says no.  Undeterred, the child then asks if he can get half a cookie and the negotiation ensues.  I love this example…

Mobile salary negotiation, now more is possible

Mobile salary negotiation allows employers, recruiters and employees to do things they could not do before. They can now capture the value that is inevitably left on the table after every negotiation. 

There are two reasons value is inevitably left on the table:

  1. Information is not shared freely out of fear of being taken advantage…

3 ways to stop other companies taking your candidate

Sometimes, the client experience can feel a bit like buying a house. I put forward a great candidate, they do a perfect interview and are offered the job. Client and candidate are happy. At least until someone else comes along with a better offer and lo and behold – that client has been ‘gazumped’ by the lure of a higher salary.

This happened to one of my clients recently, with the candidate turning down a role (despite already having accepted it) for the sake of a few thousand pounds…

I am A Nurse Practitioner, For Gosh Sakes! Hire Me…Please!

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…

Move Beyond Salary – Money is Not A Viable Measure of Success

One of the most important jobs of a recruiter when making a match between candidate and client is salary expectations…or is it?  Salary is one component but what should be considered is the total compensation package + non tangibles such as culture and advancement opportunity.  However I am sure we can all recount those who get stuck on salary and that is often because salary reflects status and an interpreted success (along with job title).  We are after all social creatures and what others…

Compensation: Is it a Taboo Subject?

Discussion about money is often taboo, yet those who are uncomfortable talking about money upfront (both employer and employee) are starting their relationship off on the wrong foot.  The employer/employee relationship should not be a “guessing” game.  Good relationships are based on frank, honest communication.  And, the employer sets the stage first by being upfront about the salary range being offered.
 
Hiring managers are often afraid to show their cards first. …

Understanding Candidate Lies

I write a lot about lying, mostly because it is happening all the time.  Candidates lie to recruiters for a variety of reasons.  Recruiters have to expect a certain amount of lying.  Some of it is even understandable.  Here are some examples:

George says he is willing to relocate, no problem.  Weeks later, many obstacles materialize that would interfere.  These aren’t…

Talking Money – Early and Often

There is a lot of well-intentioned advice cautioning job seekers from disclosing their salary history and / or requirements.  The wisdom (?) behind this is that you don’t want to get “low-balled” by asking for too little or be tagged over qualified by asking for too much.

 

So what’s the alternative?  Apparently you wait until the employer is ready to make an offer, and naturally you NEVER accept the first offer.  After all, who leaves money on the table,…

Will your next job be a good fit? Consider the company's culture

In a recent blog, we wrote about salary and benefits requirements for IT job seekers – and why candidates need to know everything they want (compensation) before starting the interview process with potential employers. Salary and benefits are key factors when determining whether a job is the right one for you. But there’s one other component in the decision-making process that is very…
