As a recruiter, we are out there on the front lines, rolling up our sleeves to source, screen and slate the top talent on the market. We strive to do whatever it takes (ethically) to find that always elusive blue diamond, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all odds, turn them into interested, engaged applicants.

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.
In life and is in football, playing against and with the clock (of our life) is a powerful strategy to live a happy and productive life and career.

What is Onboarding?
Onboarding is the process of providing new employees the information and skill sets that they need to be effective within your company. New employees will be more successful if they have the opportunity to integrate into your company, instead of simply throwing them in and telling them “good luck.”
Previously, hiring was easier because companies simply needed to post the job and then sit back and wait for the right employees to show up on their doorstep. But, the market is more competitive now, and a good portion of your candidates may not have the skill set that is needed for the job. Instead of sifting through the low-qualified candidates, a better option is to reach out to people who would be an ideal fit for your company.
Think about your job. Maybe what you are doing is of extreme significance to others and of course necessary to pay the bills.
There is much dignity in your work if you consider the larger picture.
