Chasing Pay?

If a prospective employer sees you changing jobs every year or two for higher pay, they may see your time on a job with them as just another temporary stop. The moment another employer offers you more money, you’ll hit the road, Jack. Employers frown from hiring perceived “unstable” candidates, whether or not it is true. Too many job changes on a resume can make an applicant appear unstable.

Recruitment: Why December Really Matters

Because most firms don’t recruit during this period, it’s easy to follow the crowd and to also shut down your own recruiting effort. Strategically, however, that would be a huge mistake and a missed opportunity. The best time to recruit is when others are idle and when the candidates are most available and receptive. This is even truer if you are a lesser-known organization that has little success when you must recruit side-by-side against better-known competitors.

Desperate and Need Results? Try This

In most businesses, this is really what the boss or a client wants from us. Results.

I’m pretty sure that right at this very moment you have your nose at the grindstone and you are sincerely trying to achieve the results that are demanded by your boss or client.

These results may or may not even be realistically attainable. Whether or not it’s realistic, it may not be your choice to decide. You have to do your job and you have to do it now.

The reason is simple but not so obvious for most people. The best evidence available is to look at a short list of successful people who have done outrageously successful things in their life without any “qualifications”:

A Setback = A Comeback

When you are carrying a building on your back and you can feel your legs ready to give out, you start thinking that your life is down the tubes (which it is not) and that you are a failure (which is absolutely not true.)

A setback is a life situation that is not working out right now or has already happened. But it’s really important to understand the difference between a life situation and who you really are.

A great piece of advice was given to me many years ago: “Remember who you are.” That is pretty powerful if you can allow yourself to truly believe it.

Why Online Research is Necessary before Making Your Hiring Decision

The ability to research social media is a huge asset to employers before an interview. That is why it is extremely important that all of us should think long and hard before posting anything on the internet. Good, bad or indifferent.

In doing online research about an applicant, a simple visit to Google can open up a treasure trove of information on someone that would never appear on a resume. Visit LinkedIn and in most cases you can actually see a picture of the applicant.
