Another Sign The Job Market Is Improving
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
Another cool thing about the improving job market? The focus on employee engagement and retention. I happen to think I know a thing or two about how to engage and retain the best employees. Why? Because they’re the ones who seek out a career coach to help them with their careers. (Pause for a moment and think about it…) I’m not a recruiting expert, nor an employee development guru, but what I’ve learned through my...
Try On The Hiring Manager’s Hat
by Stacey Lane - Sep, 2015
In talking with a couple of hiring managers this week, we got on the topic of marketing materials. I heard the good, the bad and the ugly. The good? A cover letter from an under-qualified candidate that landed him an interview. You see, he’d done his homework and realized that his background in construction operations could benefit a creative services operations team. Smart. The bad? The candidate with less than...
Virtual Reality is Coming to an HR Function Near You
by Alexandra Levit - Sep, 2015
Ever heard of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One? It’s a novel that takes place in the year 2045. Human civilization is in a dark period, so people seek refuge in a virtual reality world called the OASIS. Many spend all their waking hours in the simulation – working, taking classes, exploring different cultures, and trying out new hobbies. The book became a pop culture phenomenon when Steven Spielberg signed on to direct th...

The Secret to Recruiting Millennials (Hint: It’s Not About the Money)
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2015
By now I hope it’s no secret that millennials are looking for more from their work than just a paycheck and a place to spend their days. The perfect fit is all about culture. New York University and Harvard Business School graduate Phil Strazzulla (yes, he’s also a millennial) noticed there was a lack of detailed employer information available for young job seekers — and also no clear way for companies to showcase their emp...
2 Reasons Employees Stay and 2 Reasons Why They Won't
by Mary V. Davids - Aug, 2015
I’ve heard time and time again employers complain ‘good workers are hard to find’. But really it’s not the availability of good employees that is the problem. The real problem is found in how a sustainable relationship is formed with those employees. Keeping a good employee is really not that difficult. There are only two factors essentially required for an employee to stay. 1. TRUST 2. LIKEABILITY Anything outside of the...
How to Get an Employee Referral
by Jean Cummings - Jul, 2015
OK, in my previous blog post I noted that employee referrals are the #1 source of hire in corporate America. This statistic comes out of CareerXroads Source of Hire Study for 2014. That means leveraging employee referrals is better than depending on recruiters to find your a job, applying to jobs on big job boards, or using specialty services like Execunet or Netshare. Everyone knows that “networking” has always been the be...
Passive Candidates: Highly Perishable – Handle with Care
by Sandra M. Smith - Jul, 2015
When hiring new talent, it is important for hiring managers to understand whether the candidates they are pursuing are active or passive candidates. To distinguish between the two, an active candidate is any candidate who is already active in the job marketplace – this candidate is enthusiastically pursuing new jobs and is highly engaged in his or her search. A passive candidate, on the other hand, is one that is not actively...
The Job Search Money Trap
by Bernie Frazier - Jul, 2015
Earlier in my career, I took a job because it allowed me to start shifting my career in another direction. I wasn’t in love with it but knew it was a good move for me. About 1.5 years into the role, I took a chance and expressed an interest in doing something else within my company. While the results didn’t come immediately, one day my boss approached me about taking on a different type of assignment. I had minimal amounts...
The Power of Referrals
by Linda Dobogai - Jul, 2015
Studies consistently show that insider referrals far outpace online applications in helping candidates secure interviews and jobs. This outcome relates heavily to credibility. It is assumed that an inside referral is made by an employee who is willing to risk their reputation by recommending you. An online applicant with no connections to the business is a complete unknown. This, of course, is where the hard work associated...
