Today I find myself in a place that I had hoped never to return to, at least not just yet. I now have to apply myself to the recruiting merry-go-round as an applicant. It will be interesting to note if I will see in myself some of the behaviours seen from the other side of the fence. More importantly it will be very interesting to see how…Continue

It’s pretty easy to recognize a terrible cover letter within the first 2 seconds of reading one. People tend to forget that this document is a sales tool – you use it to sell yourself to a prospective employer. That being said, it’s very easy to ruin your potential sale with just a few simple words.
The most important thing you need to do when writing your cover letter is remember that the person reading it cares about what you have to offer them, not about who you are in…Continue
I recently came across a resume that listed a summer cashier position in 1976 as part of a person’s “professional experience.”
While it may seem a little strange or ridiculous to include an irrelevant position from nearly 25 years ago, I can tell you that it’s actually not that uncommon to come across something like this.

When you set out to find your next employee, where and how do you begin your process, and where does it end? If you’re like most companies,…

For ten years I have been ranting about the inefficiency of the resume and how ridiculous it was that a marketing and sales document had become a de facto credit report type document that corporations used to "screen out" people based on the way they did their career selling. Pity…Continue
