Be the Solution

Take a step back from the job seeker perspective and take a look at the hiring manager”s perspective. The hiring manager is hiring because he has a problem. He either is in need of additional help or he is not satisfied with an employee and he wants to replace that employee.

THE BILL GATES METHOD

Opinions may vary, but there is little doubt that Bill Gates has built, and continues to build, a very successful company. I find his secrets and his business strategies to be interesting and helpful:



1. Think and do. The bottom line is results. Thinking is a means to an end – and that end is action. You must take action to get results.

2. Only hire very, very smart people. The biggest problem with mediocre people is that they take up space that could be occupied by brilliant… Continue

Hiring Based on Merit--Does that Still Happen?

I've read a lot of blogs and articles and have sat in on countless webinars and seminars about what makes a "good" candidate and how to prep them for interviews and you know what--so much of it is so superficial it makes me want to vomit. Whatever happened to hiring people based on merit? Education, skills, training, on-the-job experience doesn't count for enough now. You also have to be pretty, charming, witty, drive a nice car, wear a nice suit, shake hands, smile, kiss babies--when did… Continue

Eight Ways to Run A Meeting Effectively

Susan Hand's Tips "responding to job applicants" Make it a Process

Corporate recruiters and agencies are overwhelmed with job applicants in these economic times. Therefore, it is extremely important to make sure that all employment communications are planned prior to getting in the ring. However, I have witnessed a bulk of organizations, and company representatives that do not respond or follow up to jobseeker.

Are there such things as permanent footprints?

There's no doubt there's been plenty written on being careful when it comes to what you publish about yourself online. But when it comes to your career - you can't careful enough. Certain things that seem fun or kitchy now, might come back to bite you sooner or later. These "perma-prints" could follow you for years, maybe even the rest of your career.
