There is a Better Way to Say What You Want to Say

By |

The funny thing about social media is…it’s all out there. People forget that the information they share extends way beyond their screens. Recently, I’ve noticed an uptick in people talking about job search, specifically, their own job searches on social platforms.
“Does anyone know of any opportunities?” “I got laid off. Anyone have any leads?”

The Dangers of Comfort in Job Search

By |

Last week, I was running late. I was saving work files, grabbing snacks for the kids, and thinking about what I was cooking for dinner. I could hear the clock ticking in my head. Tick, tock. Tick, tock. I couldn’t find my keys. I don’t have a fancy keypad door lock, just a traditional […]

By |

By David Rose
You work hard at work. What I mean to say is, you spend a lot of effort, energy, and focus on your job and job-related activities. Even when you try not to, you think about work. It creeps in. A creative solution, a new perspective, an innovative idea, or a lingering frustration […]

Same Scenario, Different Status

A candidate misses an interview with a Hiring Manager. She’s still employed. Her current boss announced a last minute visit, unexpectedly, and she had to cancel the interview.

One Candidate Is Not Representative of All Candidates

By |

By David Rose
We took a hit recently. I’m not happy about it. I’ve thought about how we could’ve done things differently. I let it rattle around. I tried not to take it personally since it’s not, it’s business.
I was working with a terrific candidate…sharp…experienced…talented. To find him, our team connected with our talent community. […]

Forget Your Competition

By |

By David Rose
I spoke with a candidate the other day. He was worked up – agitated and frustrated like a caffeine addict weaning off the java. He sent his mediocre resume with an unimpressive work history, and without any frame of reference, he felt he was the best candidate for a job he knew nothing […]

By David Rose
When participating in an interview process, following directions and completing procedural tasks (e.g. applications, assessments, background verification forms) in a timely manner demonstrate general competence, a commitment to the process, and a validation of interest. While arduous, these hurdles are designed by the company to refine a focus on candidates who are […]

Loathing, Loving, or Just Plain Lazy

By |

By David Rose
Loathing and loving a job is common. The back and forth; the flow of day to day business affects how you feel. If there are more good days through the course of the month than bad days, you’re in a good place. If, however, motivating yourself to take on the day seems […]

If you approach decision making in a […]
