I'd like to share a tip on how to search LinkedIn for the members outside of a certain geographical area.
There are at least two good reasons to search outside of an area:
1. If you search by keywords, with no location specified, you are likely to see the top results from your own area - LinkedIn thinks that finding people who live nearby is a high priority.
To illustrate, here's an example search from an account, whose owner resides in the San…Continue

For as long as I can remember (probably as long as they've been in existence) one way I've kept tabs on the job market and trends in general is through active job alerts from various job boards.
I know, #NerdAlert right?
Whether I'm looking or not, I periodically look at posted jobs that come through to see what's up, who's hiring, and of course wonder about the companies posting the same opening every few weeks or month after month.
I clicked on a…Continue

The Bureau of Labor Statistics Job Openings and Labor Turnover Summary (JOLTS) stated that December had the highest level of job openings since January 2001. This is a sign that the economy is improving, but also that recruiting is getting more difficult. As demand increases overall, so does the competition for talent.

Do you think that Genentech is aware that someone with a fake LinkedIn profile pic is "working" for them in Sales? Same here - but since I recently tweeted this out, perhaps they WILL know and reach out to their LinkedIn rep and ask the tough questions about fake profiles.
So over lunch, I looked over BRENDA Donna's profile (yes, the first name is capitalized on "her"…Continue
I admit - even after doing these roundups of new and unusual recruiting-related sites for many years - it's a bit overwhelming. Last time out, I pointed out 8 sites that I thought were pretty interesting. Well, it's barely 3 months later and I have…Continue
I am not creative enough to make this stuff up.
Here's the scenario:
Sarah is currently making $68,000 and not in a management position. She started interviewing because she wants management, opportunity, and a different company culture. Her company is large and structured in a way that limits her opportunities at the local level. She doesn't see herself going corporate, but currently reports to corporate, and is not happy with the reporting structure.
We've talked about looking to marketing and data scientists to improve recruiting, but what about people outside of your organization like actors? Yes, I said actors. Don't make a pun about actors and jobs - there's something to it.
That's why we've talked to Second City Improv Theatre about how they have been attracting & developing top talent in their field.…Continue

I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard. I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income. Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my…Continue

I read in a LinkedIn post that the President and CEO of SHRM is not an HR professional, but a finance professional (a CPA). I found that hard to believe, so I looked it up myself and it is true.
SHRM's website says, "Henry G. (Hank) Jackson is the president and CEO for the Society for Human Resources Management.... Hank came to SHRM from Howard University…Continue
With the proliferation of articles out there on interviewing, you’d be tempted to assume that interviewing a new client is easy, or at least a skill that every hiring manager has down pat. Even seasoned recruiters and HR professionals have trouble occasionally with interviews. In my position, I see lots of behind the scenes data about interviewing, particularly screening…Continue

Once upon a time, word of mouth and angry letter-writing were our top forms of expression when it came to outing a bad company to work for. Now, as our lives are increasingly led online, job review sites such as Glassdoor are making employers take greater care in the way they present themselves to potential staff. But are they 100% reliable?
For job seekers the site is a breath of fresh air; with a wealth of transparent reviews from…Continue

Start by creating a list which documents everything that might matter to candidates, and…Continue

Imagine waking up from a coma to find the world has been over run by zombies, or worse, you’re part of a dysfunctional and ineffective team at work. Either way, the day in and day out trials are exhausting. The other night I was watching AMC’s hit show, The Walking Dead. As I went through a mental recap of the prior seasons, it…Continue
