Here’s a news flash – finding top IT talent is becoming increasingly difficult as budgets loosen up and employers are desperate to fill positions requiring high demand skills. The problem seems to be that there are more jobs (believe it or not) than qualified candidates (who are actively looking for a career change).
Finding top talent can be a bit challenging in today’s market, but that’s what IT recruitment agencies like…

The launch last week with much fanfare in the USA (and a lot less elsewhere) of the new Marriott game on Facebook raises an interesting question, perhaps not quite the characters in the title, but can online games get you more hires? Does it inspire new candidates who would not have previously have thought of a career in your sector, does it help self select out those that are thinking of your company or sector or is…Continue

You look up one day and realize that you have been thrown back into the job market. Suit (and tie) ready? Check. Updated resume available electronically and printed on nice sturdy 100% cotton paper where you can actually see the fibers? Check.
So you’re prepared. However, have you checked the professionalism of your e-mail address?
Maybe the e-mail address is a small priority to some in the grand scheme of things since there are so many other concerns when prepping…Continue

I loved "Field of Dreams" a movie that spanned so many different interesting topics and life parallels that even to this day I watch to put myself in a reflective mood. I have been thinking about the ever-changing, and ever-evolving staffing landscape - like a field of dreams - where individuals find their work, eager companies snatch up amazing talent, and vehicles of change drive life's deals and closes - not to mention an ever changing web and technology landscape. When my career began…Continue

It is interesting how much stress there can be over the salary discussion in the interview process. If you ask me, it is the one question that should be easy to answer because it is factual. The recruiter should ask, “How much do you make?” And the candidate can answer with a number. Easy, right?
When we are socializing or networking we don’t talk about money. We are very comfortable asking someone what they do for a living, but we would never say, “Wow, that sounds interesting. …Continue
With the market as tough as it is, I often receive calls from students or young people in property asking how they can get their first job, or transition into a new area where they might not have experience. I give the same advice over and over again, but not many seem to take it. Applying to jobs on seek is not going to get you a role when you have no experience. In this market, you need to be prepared to do work experience (often for free) and the only way to secure these positions is…Continue

Most recruiters are still trying to get candidates to switch to bullet points instead of paragraphs, and use one font consistently.
One sector that has gone way beyond bullet points is the media business. Just for the fun of it, take a look at this article 7 Ingenious Resumes That Will Make…Continue

You have less than half a minute to catch the attention of recruiter going through your resume. I am not exaggerating, that’s how busy the recruiters are and that’s what they (think) can afford on scanning through each of those dozens of resumes on a typical day.
And if you fail to get them interested in you through your resume you just end up missing many good career opportunities. It does not matter how capable, committed and accomplished professional you are.. what matters is how…Continue

Too often companies decide to “save” $$$$ by cutting back or eliminating fees to agency recruiters. And, why shouldn’t they?

However, in this particular case there are two, and they are both recruiters in the healthcare industry:Continue
What does everyone think about this?
You're representing an A candidate. Let's say this person is a hard to find Ruby on Rails or PHP/LAMP Software Developer who has the kind of personality that everyone likes and wants to work with. This is the candidate every company wants and needs. In a tight job market, a seasoned, sharp hiring manager understands that time is of the essence and that time is your enemy. Some companies, knowing this, will make offers and give a very…Continue
