I recently heard someone say there is no wrong answer. Well, that in itself, is indeed a wrong answer! There are some terrible answers out there. No, we shouldn’t simply embrace idiocracy because people are “being themselves.” For example, if you are applying for a job as a cashier and you have served time for armed robbery- while you may have recovered and changed your life- applying for that job isn’t the best idea because the answer you will have to give to certain cash related questions will be the… Read more

I run a staffing company. My clients are seeking the best employees who will also fit in with their company's culture, match their payment ability, and best represent who they are as a brand. As a result, different factors play into who obtains which jobs. The person with the most experience doesn't always get the job. So, how do you handle not landing the job or getting that promotion?
Life is full of disappointments. I'm sure if you didn't get job A with us, we will be able to place… Read more
Here's an issue I run into every once in a blue moon- a business owner who refuses to delegate but wants to hire someone. Yes, there are people out there who know they need help but can't let go of their control issues. Listen, in business you're going to have to hire. In fact, the need to hire means you're growing- a very good thing. But you can't do it on your own. You will need a great support team behind you.
If you're having trouble delegating work and responsibility,… Read more
I had an interesting conversation with a client the other day. He said lying on a resume is outdated since we have social media. Basically, he implied this practice is over and done with. While I wish I could agree, there are still those who try to stretch the truth when applying for a job. So, how do you tell when a potential candidate isn't being 100% honest?
First, ask for transcripts. One of the worst and most common lies on resumes are college GPAs. Not many people are lying… Read more
There is a new way to find work. While it isn't so popular right now, I think the method will go viral soon. Instagram job hunts are on the rise. But how can a simple photo help connect someone with the right job? Well, let us consider these facts:
1. 1 billion "Likes" go out per day on Instagram. That's 1 billion chances for people to connect with one another.
2. Over 130 million people use Instagram more than twice a day.
3. Instagram allows you a custom handle, making… Read more
Ahh, you come to the end of your workday and reflect on all that you have accomplished. Your expense reports are done. You have met with your team to discuss goals and set deadlines. You've fired one employee and you've hired a new branding team. Your work here is done. So, how's your health.
Did you start the day off with a high-calorie coffee and muffin? Maybe you took a snack from the vending machine and then ate a fast food burger at your desk. Not so accomplished after all,… Read more
I once had an encounter with a highly-skilled person. She was an amazing interview. She was personable, had the qualifications I was looking for, and much more. I didn't hire her.
What was wrong? Well, it was very simple - she assumed she had the job and didn't possess follow through. I was looking for someone who was both experienced and possessed follow through. I share this story because it is very important for people seeking work to understand and then practice the art of follow through.
If you interview… Read more
Everyone hates cold calls. The people make the calls grimace each time they have to dial a number. The people on the receiving end usually aren't much happier. So, what happens when you want to call a company about potential employment? Some companies don't list their jobs online because they're in search of a different type of employee, the risk taker!
If you have to make a cold call, don't panic. Here are three ways to overcome the discomfort that goes along with cold calling employers.
1. Be upfront right… Read more
