Beyond the Resume? Intelligent Design for Mere Mortals

Seth Godin wrote a post called "Why bother having a resume?” in which he claims that truly extraordinary people do not require the standard job-seeking dossier. His point is that your “presentation” should include other tools to display your talents; these would include an insightful blog, fantastic recommendations from respected individuals, a sophisticated project… Continue

What Internal & 3rd Party Recruiters Can Learn From Steve Jobs!

When it comes to the business world, Steve Jobs is the Man. Period.

This guy creates value in just about everything he touches - Is every new product Apple launches a blockbuster? . . . No, but his track record is a laundry list of immense successes. If you owned Apple stock just 12 months ago, I'm sure you'd agree. 12 months ago to the day, you could have bought AAPL at $95/share on… Continue

Article Title: When I refer to references...

Author Byline: the medical sales recruiter

Author Website:

References are so often an after thought, but they shouldn’t be. They should be on your mind (at least once a month). Even if you are not currently looking for a job. Let me explain. I will start with the negatives (those things you should pay attention to not do!).

1. Don’t give me (the recruiter) or your employer conquest a… Continue

You're My 'Mentor'??? Say What? But You're An A**hole . . . Um, Thanks . . . .

Rant of the day: Clowns and/or A**holes are self-appointing themselves as Mentors.?. !!!

Yes, yes, this is truly a growing problem . . . word on the street is that in the recruiting and business world, Clowns and/or A**holes (in the Bob Sutton sense) are appointing themselves as Mentors. I had to restate this as just saying it once doesn't let it sink in enough.

This kind of reminds me of John Adams episode #2 on HBO where Abigail tells Johnny-Boy, "You have overburdened… Continue
