Show Your Skills And Experience From a Video Resume

Video resumes are growing in popular with time and job candidates find this a useful method to stand out from the crowd.

Keep Pushing Constant and Fearless Innovation

How committed are you to constant and fearless innovation? When someone tells you an idea is farfetched or it cannot be done, do you go out of your way to make it happen? Are you afraid to fail? I have seen far too often people get complacent and stop innovating, stop bringing ideas to the table. Complacency should not exist. People should want more, want better. Why do we stop wanting more? Why does what is OK get left alone? Why do we not want the best? We should want to strive for perfection… Continue

The Impact of the Social Graph on Recruiting

For far too long, marketers, advertisers, and recruiters have undervalued the way actual decisions are made. Witness the interrupt driven nature of product advertising and job postings. The assumption is that by placing information in front of customers or prospective candidates, we will automatically convince them to buy our products or apply for work at our organization.

While, there are some who can be described as oversharers; I actually think there is value in sharing personal information. Each one of us have many…
