Think before you Tweet: How a Dongle joke got 2 people fired

In one part of the world, a butterfly flaps it's wings. In another, there's a Tsunami. 

That's what happened this week, and two people lost their jobs because of it.

Is it time for Job-seekers to get more creative

With Platforms like LinkedIn and You tube are the days of the traditional CV numbered?

I for one love seeing candidates getting creative when seeking a role. I don’t think this will completely replace the traditional CV but now that many adverts have the apply with LinkedIn button, is it about time the CV evolved into 2012?

With unemployment still at a high in many sectors how can candidates…

The Power of Thank You – Write a Note and Reap the Benefits

Many studies have identified the power of saying ‘thank you.’  When you say ‘thank you’ your customers they spend more, they return less, they tell their friends about you and your service delivery.  In the workplace employee productivity increases when a sign of appreciation is shown such as ‘thank you.’  Likewise vendors go the extra mile, provide deeper discounts, extend credit, deliver on time and increase consideration.  This drives profit, margin and success.

If this is the case…

The Post-Interview Thank You Note: A Make or Break!

Imagine that you have recently interviewed for the position of your dreams and walked away confident that you would receive a job offer.  Professionally, there are very few greater feelings than sincere optimism about obtaining a role that could significantly advance your career. Now consider that, despite your outstanding qualifications and presentation, you find out that another candidate has been selected for the position.

Leadership Quandary - What Is Worse--Losing Your Followers or Losing Your Way as a Leader?

Losing your followers or losing your way--which is worse for a leader?

Can you be a leader without followers or without a purpose?  Which is more critical?

My view is a leader is a leader with or without followers.  Leaders find a mission—a purpose and pursue it.  Followers, by their nature, need motivation, direction and a person & mission/vision bigger than themselves to…

The return of the retainer

It's time recruiters fully understand the service they are offering their clients. Many of us are working on a Contingency basis (ie: only being paid for a successful placement, irrespective of who is put forward for the position); as we think this is what the client wants - in reality a contingency based payment is really only favoured if you are putting forward 1 candidate, if you are working for the candidates best interest.


If you are indeed working for…

Why stay at a job you hate

We've all had one (or two, ok maybe more!) - the dreaded job we have come to hate. You feel sick at the thought of going to work, you can't wait for your holidays and when it gets really bad, you can't sleep at night.

So why do we do it?
Why do we stay at a job we hate? There are a multitude of reasons, from things like:
  1. it's easy

Recruiter Giving Blog Credit

We each write a blog for our individual or corporate purpose.

I love writing but tend to use blogs for summary of issues and to generate ideas and commentary from others. I prefer positive posts or topics that will help me or others consider process improvement. I don't enjoy the sales pitch or those that judge people they don't know or rant and rave. I am not consistent in my blogs because my interest are as varied and conceptual as my time to write. I don't pretend to have…

Everyone’s familiar with internships, right?

Do I remember you?

The challenge that job seekers face in today’s world is very similar to that of most sales/marketing types, namely:

  • It can be very difficult for you to differentiate yourself
  • You often have 30 seconds or less to make that first impression
