This week I looked up from my keyboard to see more than just a few unread messages sitting in my LinkedIn Inbox. And while the number was a hefty three digits, I put time on my calendar and committed to get through them all before the weekend. Luckily I managed to knock them all out and hit zero yesterday - but it wasn't without struggling through a fair amount of… Continue

Today we are discussing trait #8 networking, to make you more employable in 2010. Continue
Networking is essentially getting to know other people, their abilities, and interests for the mutual benefit of each other. It brings that saying “It’s not what you know, but who you know that gets you the gig” so true. Connecting with the right people is more important today then ever before.
In this age of cut…

The annual Middle East Salary Survey is designed to look at current levels of salaries, wages and benefits across the GCC, Middle East and North Africa (ie. salaries in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Morrocco and other Middle Eastern and North African countries), and gauge employee opinion and employee satisfaction vis-a-vis their salaries, and how these have kept pace with inflation and the cost of living in the GCC, Middle East & North… Continue

When leading talent looks for something new, what challenges do they look for?
Here’s a current story from sport that interests me (not just because I support the team he plays for!) and illustrates the dilemma.
Aside from the World Cup, followers of UK Football will no doubt be treated to another summer of speculation from the sporting media over, amongst other things, whether or not the footballer Cesc Fabregas will leave London and return to Spain.

I have been around the business for a long time. Early on and being far less intelligent, something debated to this day I might add, I was quick to use the resume given to me by candidates to present them to my clients. I did little to nothing to change anything on the resume.…

Coke’s the real thing. (So much so, they sell bottled water.) Everyone loves Google. (Or used to.) Everyone loves Apple. (Except all the folks who don’t.) Everyone’s crazy about Starbucks. (Except for tea drinkers, Peet’s fans, fans of small business, and so on.)
Besides being insanely popular and having detractors, what do these brands have in common? Well, not much—except they all rank at or near the top of Interbrand’s list of the world’s most valuable brand by brand… Continue

Know when to hold ‘em, and when to fold ‘em….
Suit? No suit? Business casual…. What does that even mean? It’s 95 degrees out and you’re hauling down the street in a full suit, button down, and tie. You’re lost. AWESOME… and to top it off, you have about 1 minute to find where you’re interviewing and all of a sudden – nobody around you seems to speak English. Wait? So Park Street turns into Park Place but I have to cross over the highway? AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Nightmare? NOPE.… Continue

Not so long ago I had a conversation with an HR colleague that was looking for a new opportunity. We were talking about resume strategy and I asked her the following question:
What is your goal? Do you want to look like everyone else in the candidate pool and hope you stand out based on your skills? Or can you risk being uniquely you in the way you present yourself? That question completely derailed our resume writing… Continue

Like many people in this economy, I've spent a fair amount of time out of work. It's simply not fun. You become so callous to rejection -
if you hear anything at all - that an automated response telling you
"Thank you for your application. At this time we have found more
qualified candidates" is almost something to look forward to.
It's a good thing to keep in mind when dealing with recruits who are out of work and looking. Handle the rejection with… Continue

Before joining the recruitment industry wholeheartedly, I, like many others had a pretty rose tinted view of how recruitment worked. It wasn't until it became part of my career did the realisation hit me that far from the focus being on relationships and service, it was instead on sales, closing the deal and hitting KPI's.
Fortunately for me, there are some that believe this to be a waste of time and this has allowed the Courtenay HR business to flourish inside our parent group, where… Continue
