Mirror , Mirror on the Wall, Who is the Fairest of them all?

On two separate times in the past week, my inbox contained entries which centered around the image that the corporation puts forth to the marketplace. In each one to some degree the organizations involved forgot what their purpose is -- to acquire and maintain customers. To do that we need to have the "right person, in the right job, at the right time and in the right place."

Consider these events. The first involved a cheerleader on the Baltimore Ravens. She was banned from being…

The moving target that is the job Description!!

The moving target that is the job Description!!

We have all seen it and dealt with it. A job Description (JD) not written with us being involved, that says almost nothing, and when you speak to the hiring manager (HM) and ask question they give you almost nothing.

My clients ask me to "just send me a copy of the resume"

Here is my problem I am doing my blind presentation and I am getting feedback but…

Saving my best candidates for my best clients

Here’s an admission from a recruiter, I save my best candidates for my best clients. Not all clients are created equal and neither are all candidates. Sometimes an “A” player will walk into your office and he or she does not know that they are an “A” player and their just looking for a better job. I love these humble candidates. They know that they are hardworking and successful but have been working under terrible conditions or a terrible boss for so long that they think that this is…

I almost can't believe I am actually saying those words, but YES(!) I am retired.

Copy and paste CVs damage your image!

There's a phrase I am seeing way too often;

"I have combined full time studies with other commitments. In achieving this, I have shown myself to be hardworking, dedicated and determined in achieving my goals."

I'm seeing it so often it's starting to make me yawn and it's colouring my opinion of what might otherwise be a good CV. It tells me the author went to the internet and slavishly copied the advice given there, without even bothering to reword it in any way. That…
