Hand Written Thank you notes? Unique and different or cheap and unprofessional

Recently, I read a blogpost on a jobseeker site asking on advice on interviews. This candidate mentioned that s/he wrote a handwritten thank you note to each one of the hiring managers after the 1st interview process. S/he thought it was a nice touch and made his/her candidacy different than the other candidates that interviewed for the same position. Did it really or did s/he just ruin his/her chances at the job? S/he knew that most job candidates will write a generic quick e-mail to the…

To tell or not to tell...

I always worry if I am doing the right thing by telling a candidate not only are they interviewing for an opening but so is our second submittal. We always tell candidates we can submit 1 or 2 resumes per an opening. Which is true in some cases, dependent on the client. But are we really hurting ourselves when we are making ourselves look good?

Keep Pushing Constant and Fearless Innovation

How committed are you to constant and fearless innovation? When someone tells you an idea is farfetched or it cannot be done, do you go out of your way to make it happen? Are you afraid to fail? I have seen far too often people get complacent and stop innovating, stop bringing ideas to the table. Complacency should not exist. People should want more, want better. Why do we stop wanting more? Why does what is OK get left alone? Why do we not want the best? We should want to strive for perfection… Continue
