The Client Side - I need some motivation. Has anyone made a placement today?

I've been working like a dog and I was not feeling particularly motivated today so I put the question out on Twitter.....

Has anyone made a placement today?

I was promptly reminded by Jerry Albright (the Twittering Maniac) that, of course not, not this crowd. Everyone on Twitter is coaching or sharing advice, not making placements. The people making placements are busy doing the placement making work. So I thought if I wanted to find someone who made a placement today,… Continue

Some, rather most organizations reject his CV today because he has changed jobs frequently (10 in 14 years). My friend, the ‘job hopper’ (referred here as Mr. JH), does not mind it…. well he does not need to mind it at all. Having worked full-time with 10 employer companies in just 14 years gives Mr. JH the relaxing edge that most of the ‘company loyal’ employees are struggling for today. Today, Mr. JH too is laid off like some other 14-15 year experienced guys – the… Continue

Are your References working for you?

When looking for a job, references can give you the edge over other qualified candidates. But good references don't just happen, they need to be created, coached and informed. Choose people that know you and your work. A well known top executive may be an attention getter on your reference list but if he's contacted, and hasn't heard of you, then you are sunk. Make sure your references know who you are, what you can offer a potential employer and that… Continue

Another Linkedin Back Door

I am sure someone else has already figured it out but I just did and was excited to share. I realized that when I inmail someone with a private profile, once you send them an inmail you can go back in to review that inmail and Linkedin actually adds in the first name of that person to the message. Gold mine! That just made it so much easier to call in to the company. I have a list of first names and job titles! Yeah!!!

Two-Face book

networkFB Obviously I am not the first to weigh in on the pros and cons of using social networking sites like Facebook ®, etc. I was actually late to the party getting on FB because I thought it was more for the much younger crowd, but it has become quite a useful tool for me to re-connect with people and also to get the word out about my business and blog and has yielded rewards.

The death of job boards? Ahem…

I’ve been in the job board world since 1998, which probably makes me some sort of dinosaur or masochist. Strangely enough, the imminent death of job boards has been proclaimed almost since their inception.

Today is no different. Whether it’s here or here or here, the word on the street (or in the blog, as it were) is that the job board’s days are numbered because of a changing employment environment, Twitter, job board greed and incompetence, a surplus of recruiters, social networks,… Continue

Dear Global Warming

My sister recently wrote a letter to Global Warning, which although funny in addressing Global Warning as a being, is not so funny a topic. An environmental world organization responded with a hysterical response. Visit the Blog on blogger DearGlobalWarming.
