No Respect for Groundbreaking Apple Engineers?

No Respect for Groundbreaking Engineers?
While reading through some engineering updates this afternoon, I came across an article that left me fairly perplexed. An event was held on Saturday for the engineering crew who created the first ever Mac. Now, for an event like this, one would assume that the “big wigs” in the technology field would be present, correct? Well, this article states differently. Take a look‒do you think there should have been more of presence of the technological gurus? http://www.zdnet.com...

Resumes are dead . . . ?

Resumes are dead . . . ?
"RESUMES ARE DEAD!" Or, at least that's what I've seen floating around the internet recently. I, however, disagree (and not respectfully because this is terrible advice). While a LinkedIn profile is a must, there are still plenty of companies that do not use LinkedIn for recruiting. While it can be a pain to maintain, keeping an up-to-date resume (emphasis on the "up-to-date" part) on Indeed, CareerBuilder, and Monster is just as essential as having a well thought out LinkedIn profile.

Keys to Career Success: 6 Little Things That Make a Big Difference
I recently attended a networking event for the Southwest Metro Human Resources Association that left me with some insight on how to take realistic, proactive steps toward your career development. Amanda Brinkman, Chief Brand and Communications Officer at Deluxe Corporation and marketing guru, gave some common sense lessons on how the way you conduct yourself is just as important as your work experience and education. I wanted to share with you some of the key points I took from her presentation. Focus on the positive. This one...

Is your ideal candidate a unicorn?

Is your ideal candidate a unicorn?
As we've transitioned out of the recession, recruiters have been in a unique position to watch the job market turn truly candidate-driven. At the height of the recession, companies who posted a specific opening immediately had 5 (or 500) perfect candidates at their door who had been laid off. Now, candidates have the upper hand. The best candidates are employed and paid well, or they're able to command strong counter-offers, or they're leaving for better opportunities. It's clear that the new reality has not sunk in. Often, we'll present a great candidate to a client only to hear that they'd...

How to do interview follow-up right:  Walk the fine line . . .
You've undoubtedly heard numerous times that it’s a good idea to follow up with the hiring manager after you have completed an interview. There is, however, a fine line with this process that can shine either a positive or negative light on yourself as a candidate. In this article, I will break down the “DOs and DON’Ts” of interview follow up. Why follow up? Following up after an interview is important for a number of reasons. Mainly, it expresses your interest and excitement in the position. It could also set you apart from other candidates who are not following up. If the company...

Take a Leap of Faith: Questions for the Recruiter vs. Questions for the Interviewer

Take a Leap of Faith: Questions for the Recruiter vs. Questions for the Interviewer
We know. You've got questions. Every job opportunity raises a million important questions. But, which questions can you ask your recruiter and which should wait until you can ask the company directly? Got ants in your pants? I recently worked with a candidate who had a long list of questions well before he even got to the point of an interview. Don’t get me wrong, questions concerning the position are great, and as a recruiter, we do our best to get every one of these questions answered ASAP. The issue in this particular situation, however, was that his questions concerning benefits,...

Asking Culture Questions: How to get to know an employer culturally before committing

Why you should always consider "cultural fit" when applying for a new job
Job seekers often forget to think about the culture of a company when deciding where to apply. Culture questions should be near the top of your list to ask interviewers. After all, culture reflects the personality of the company and affects everything that transpires there on a day-to-day basis. Some culture questions to ask include: What is the office structure (cubicles, office, room with a view)? Is flexible scheduling permitted? What qualities or performance attributes does the company value? Is the atmosphere calm and methodical or high-energy chaos? Do people stay in one position a...
