The Reality of Greatness in a Competitive Job Market

By |April 28th, 2016

By David Rose
The term greatness is tossed around like a vendor hawking icy cold beers during a daytime double header in July at the ballpark. To the thirsty baseball fan – at that moment – the vendor is his or her best buddy, chum, and pal. The vendor commands attention. The vendor is elevated […]

Employer Attraction

By |January 7th, 2016

Cruising through the toy section on Amazon, lured by promises of great deals and discounts, I stumbled upon a toy that hearkened back to my youth. The toy, one of the best-selling and most recognizable toys ever, was The Original Wooly Willy. It captured my attention not so much because there is a resemblance […]

A Tattered Career

By |October 20th, 2015

Recently, while I was caught up in a web of curiosity – leaping from site to site – clicking on links and images that garnered interest, I came across a sleek, well designed website – www.unclaimedbaggage.com. I was fascinated by this one-of-a-kind store.

Random Job Thought #2

By |September 8th, 2015

Random Job Thought #4

By |September 2nd, 2015

How many times have you seen a post that promotes a job seeking a “talented” or “enthusiastic” leader? As if there are other companies that are ok hiring untalented and unenthusiastic leaders. Strange.

Random Job Thought #9

By |September 2nd, 2015

Company loyalty hinges on the engagement. It’s not the rah-rah jargon or the team building. It’s not the on-site restaurant or discounted gym memberships. It’s totally, and completely, about following through on promises.

Random Job Thought #15

By |September 2nd, 2015

Don’t make it easy for any employer to pass on you. One surefire way to get excluded from consideration is to ditch the job search responsibility off on someone else. If you can’t invest the time in your own career search, what would make a company believe you would invest the time for them?

Sometimes, You Must Switch It Up

By |June 29th, 2015

When you’re a candidate for a new job – by choice or unforeseen circumstance – it’s easy to get lost amidst the competition. And, as if the competition wasn’t enough, candidates have been known to disappear in the vast depths of database systems too.

You’ve been there. You’re willing to do whatever it takes to […]

Get Your Just Deserts

By |June 2nd, 2015

When the job market is active, it’s just as important to validate as is it to make a change. The grass may not be greener, but, finding out what weed killer a company is using can be valuable too.

We are going through a shift in the workforce. There is less talent available (or less […]
