Interview practice for a meeting with the CEO of Christmas

These two didn't practice their interview skills

Watching little kids go through another holiday season forces me to question the future of corporate America. There are plenty who feel I am insensitive and…

You just blew your phone screen and you didn't even say your name!

A by gone era of style, etiquette, and interesting HR
How you just blew your phone interview!

The phone screen interview determines whether or not you are going to move onto the next round, the in person interview.  You may have done your research and have prepared some great answers, but in the same way a lot of…

What HR really thinks about your Office Halloween Costume

I loved working with this guy, what an Office Halloween Costume!


Office Halloween Costumes are one my guilty HR pleasures.  Up there with interviewing a young co-ed, delivering a pink slip to the office bully, and my personal favorite: reporting a 20% less yearly…

Is your Executive Candidate Experience killing your company brand?

The executive candidate experience needs special attention.  We may think that every candidate needs special attention, but the fact of the matter is, these candidates ARE different and can kill your recruiting brand.

HBO's Hard Times, Lost in Long Island. How HR and recruiters can give back.

I just watched the HBO documentary Hard Times Lost on Long Island.  This was a 1-hour documentary profiling a few unemployed individuals living on Long Island and I highly recommend everyone watch it.  It should be required watching for anyone working in HR.  I watch movies to escape.  I want to watch movies so I don’t have to think about the real world, but…

When a candidate doesn't wash their hands. . .

If you are interviewing with a company, think of yourself as a restaurant worker after you use the bathroom.  Simply put: Wash your hands.  Your mother told you this every day growing up so that when you got into public, it would be a natural habit.  Good habits pay big rewards.

Picture this:  I go to use our restrooms and run into someone I don’t know coming out of the stall where “Number 2” business was just taken care of.  I say “hello”, he says “hello”.   It’s just a cordial…
