Ask for the job? Yes? No? or Maybe?

A tip you hear from a lot of recruiters is that at the end of the interview you should “Ask for the job!”  You know, when the person interviewing you says “Any questions for me?” you say stuff like: “ Do you think I’m a good fit for this job?”, “Are there any concerns with my background relative to this role?”, “What would keep you from hiring me?” there are a million of them but you get the idea...ask for the job.



The real question I have...is this a good idea? Should you “ask…

How NOT to recruit someone.....

We all read a ton of articles about how to recruit people, where to find people blah blah blah.  Right?  I mean, it’s almost like information overload with regard to how to find great candidates.  One thing I’m finding though, with all this talk of how to find people.....I’d like to focus on how NOT to recruit someone.  Why?  Well, l’m noticing all these great recruiting tools have made recruiters lazy.  Rather than picking up the phone…

A deeper look at "Circles" to organize your network

A lot of great content has already been written about Google Plus and how we can use it for recruiting (or networking if you are not a recruiter).  I continue to think circles are the key feature for those of us feeling unsatisfied with other social media platforms ability to organize and structure our contacts.  I wanted to give my take on how to really dig deep and use Google Plus to organize your online world.

1) Start Big - Huh?  Don’t people usually recommend starting small? Well…

Is it about the team or the company?

When looking at a new job you’ve got to consider a bunch of things...one in particular is what’s more valuable to you: the company name or the team you’re joining.  

 

Now, in some cases they are the same thing right?  Joining a start up?  The team IS the company.  However, joining a larger organization like Apple or Microsoft you really need to consider the specific group you are joining as much as the…

Interview tips for the summer job search

Ok, it’s officially summer and the 4th of July is coming (my favorite holiday if you were wondering...LFOD baby!). The sun is finally out and vacations are starting actually happen. Alas, the summer is also one of the hardest times of the year to network and get a job. All those things we love about the summer make finding a job slow and painstakingly annoying as things get rescheduled and pushed out to make sure the whole team is around. With that, before I go on my vacation....I give you a… Continue

Coughlin’s Laws and Recruiting

Ok, bunch of you guys are wondering what the hell I’m talking about...so, quick history lesson. In 1988, Tom Cruise starred in “Cocktail” the story of a “talented NY bartender”. Well, I’m not sure I agree with that but this movie is the essence of 1980’s bad cinema....and I LOVE it! One of the main antagonists is Doug Coughlin who’s basically a drunk jerk.



That being said, he has the "laws" that he lives by and is generally obnoxious about them. Pretty much throughout the movie… Continue
