Get Reacquainted

By |March 28th, 2017

Consider this – the average career spans 50 years.

Over that time, we learn new skills, meet new people, take on more responsibilities, muddle through transition, and if we’re lucky, we are able to balance personal and professional interests.  As much as we prepare and plan, we often navigate through uncharted waters, and sometimes the […]

Your Spouse Isn’t Looking for a Job – You Are

By |March 28th, 2017

From time to time, candidates reach out to us in unique ways.

There are the creative sorts that leverage every marketing tool available to gain attention. There are others who are minimalists, and feel their experience should garner attention, not the flash. Still, others, have a different approach.
I received a message earlier today from a […]

Making a Job Change…

By |March 23rd, 2017

To some degree, you are who you are, professionally.

If you’ve been a multi-unit leader, for example, trying to move to a corporate or support role can be challenging. Companies see your past experience, not the direction you what to go.
So, if you’re truly dedicated to making a shift in your career, it’s incumbent upon […]

Make It About People

By |March 21st, 2017

The drive to hire, under the guise of ‘talent acquisition’ – which sounds more about commodities than people – continues to move closer to its ultimate demise.

Companies have been building hiring infrastructure based solely on data. There’s an old expression, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” It seems to have been […]

Success Around Us 2.0

By |September 19th, 2016

Sometimes we forget how talented we are. Other times, we don’t even know we’re talented. We don’t give ourselves enough credit for the tireless effort, consistency, dedication, and resiliency we endure on a daily basis. We do it for different reasons; we all have different motivation, but it’s important to recognize progress – progress […]

The Silent Critic

By |August 9th, 2016

By David Rose
Many years ago, I needed car insurance. Like anyone else I sought out the best coverage and rates available. There was an Insurance Agency in the shopping center down the street from where I lived and I thought it would be easy to go where I could sign up quickly and get […]

Peekaboo: The Job Market Hiding From You

By |May 23rd, 2016

By David Rose
Nearly 8 out of 10 jobs vacancies in the United States are never advertised. These positions are filled internally (promotion/succession), through networking (online and in real life), and by way of referrals (from both, inside and outside the organization).
Too often, candidates spend too much time focused on the remaining 2 of 10 […]

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 […]
