The Hidden Job Market: How the Royal Wave Can Lead to a Job Offer





What is the royal wave and what does it have to do with job search? I’m glad you asked. The royal wave is loosely defined as:





“The type of the hand gesture that royalty gives when passing a crowd, normally from inside an expensive vehicle or on top of a horse drawn carriage. Similar to parade wave but with even less effort required, since everyone is already looking at royalty, there's no need to get their attention with… Continue

Dry Powder Job Market (Part 2)

In Part 1 of "It's a Dry Powder Market," I introduced the dry powder theory. The dry powder theory is an investment term used to describe tactics investors employ during an economic recession where they maintain a very liquid amount of assets that are quickly… Continue

Death of Cheezhead

I've recently noticed the Cheezhead and HRSEO domains are redirecting to Jobing.



You might ask.. So what?



Well for those of you who compete with Jobing, all of the back links (aka Google Juice) your blog or site was giving Cheezhead and HRSEO are now providing the "CheezJuice" to Jobing, resulting in a healthy heaping helping of "… Continue

Manage by Rate? Manage by Margin? It's a confusing world out there ...

In the past few years, I've seen the increasing trend of Corporate HR and Procurement departments paying attending to their contractor spend.



Back in the good old days, when a hiring freeze was put in that generally meant a wealth of need for contractors .. after all, the work has to get done right? It seemed like the wild west when I first got into the business .. companies just wanted a body in a chair, and didn't get too concerned about how much money they were being charged… Continue

How Does the Boss Tweet?

I really can't help it. I am a business owner with many internal employees as well as thousands of contractors and I blog, Tweet and, yes, Foursquare. While I try to avoid religion, politics and friends' most embarassing moments; I get personal and real and try to do onto others…



I struggle over this terrain. Using my weekend as an example, I enjoyed self-respect this morning in that I had governed myself by not publicizing attendance at Forty Deuce's Burlesque Cafe Was in West… Continue

The Darker Side of Recruitment

Though recruitment has various dark sides to it, the biggest for me is dirty old men! (Let’s not be ageist now, men can be inappropriate at any age!)



In my (main) job, I work almost exclusively with men; a large percentage of whom are between 50 and 60. Generally I like this demographic – they’re a flirty bunch, but with values. And by that I mean that they’re mostly happily married, respect that I too am married, and are just having a bit of harmless fun if and when they say… Continue

Managing the 2-job employee

The era of the two-job employee (let us call him “Sam”) has emerged as a result of the global recession. Sam is a new breed who developed entrepreneurial survival skills to battle the recession, and learned how find and keep a second job.



You, the employer, do not need to be too alarmed if Sam takes on a second job as a baker, or a mechanic, because this would require Sam to be physically present at that location. However the situation is more complicated if Sam takes on a second job… Continue

Looking ahead to TruLondon II and TruSource in London

Wow, less than 4 weeks to go and the Bill Boorman phenomena takes on its latest iteration with TruLondon II and TruSource.



Inspired by RecruitFest in Toronto last year, Bill has grasped the Unconference model with both hands and taken it into places and worlds unknown. We have all gratefully jumped on board, giving us a chance to share… Continue

"What we have here.. is... failure to communicate!"



OK maybe I'm sucking up to Maren Hogan (Hi Maren) but I couldn't resist this after the Saturday I've just had.



We've been renovating at home over the last month or so. I am not handy with these things at all, so we employed a builder to look after things for us. Things started off with a flourish, things got uninstalled, frames got put up, man we were flying.



Things started to go awry though, when it… Continue

There's Always Next Time

Well, I’m not sure how many of these sports analogy blogs I’ll be doing since my Packers lost to Arizona but there’s a good lesson here so I’ll take the opportunity while I can.



Like playoff fever, it’s natural for a candidate to be excited about a position as she’s going through the interview process and each round brings more and more excitement because naturally, the goals seems to be getting closer. And it really is a competition since one blown interview means “one and done” in… Continue

Metrics

Due to the recent economic conditions Human Resource Managers are finding new ways to demonstrate the importance of their department to executives. We all know numbers are the best way to speak to senior management. Thus many organizations have now or are in the process of implementing new quantifiable metrics into their recruitment process.



I have been asked by some “what are some of the metrics we can use to measure our vendors?” I often tell them to take a step back and look at… Continue

A Bunch of Hot Dates

The Lay of the Land

As humans, we're bound by a few things...gravity, taxes and time. When it comes to Time we're pretty much stuck moving forward and only talking about what's behind us or in front of us. Like you, I've learnt some simple sales tricks or methods to increase my chances of controlling my situation for the better. In this scenario, I'm going to talk about the use of Hot Dates. If this seems mundane to you, no problem, sometimes I find a little refresher doesn't hurt.… Continue

Would you recruit someone with a visible tattoo?

Tattoo at work

Within the workplace, there is still - I believe - one subject that creates very strong opinions and pre-conception discrimination when it comes to new colleagues and even worse prospective employees... and that is tattoos.

Tattoos used to be considered taboo, connected to…

Positive Energy Always a Must

I am a mom of two kids: a 6-year-old daughter, and an 8-month-old son. When our son was born and while I was on maternity leave, my husband and I decided not to continue daycare due to budget, so he and I switch off - I work part-time in the morning, and he works 3-11 pm Monday through Friday. Therefore, I am usually with the kids each night, and I try to keep my daughter somewhat active after school, otherwise I have an overly energetic child driven up the walls. Keeping her active has also… Continue

Has the workforce changed forever?

The evolving US economy, cyclical change, and the worldwide distribution of wealth and business have caused what some experts are claiming to be an ever changing and fluid workforce. Stability and permanence are washed away to the low cost countries beating down our doors offering value and efficiency. But is that the case, or are we not noticing the widespread change that is taking place with our off-shoring efforts and what is likely to be a huge windfall (long long term) if the US can… Continue

Twitter and me



We're great mates. We go back a year ago, and our friendship has blossomed as time has gone on.

STATE OF THE RESUME

STATE OF THE RESUME



Among the most common topics candidates seek my advice is about resume preparation. Most often I am asked for feedback regarding content or construction yet some questions are quite specific such as whether it is appropriate to use bulleted text or how much employment history to include. In the legal profession it is not uncommon for law firm partners to have a summary bio prepared by the firm’s professional marketing staff. I have talked to very accomplished… Continue
