So, you completed your interview and now you are waiting to hear back about possible next steps. Is there anything you can do after the interview? Sending a thank you card is a great way to show appreciation for the time your interviewer(s) took to speak with you, and to emphasize your enthusiasm and suitability for the role. Many people agree that email is the best way to send a thank you note, because the interviewer will receive that note right away.

Empowering People – People aren’t Candidates…They are People

By | February 19th, 2016|

As I celebrate my 13th year in the Talent Acquisition Industry, beginning in 2003 as a middle aged professional who relied on candidates to educate me on what it was that they actually did to the present day as a middle aged professional who seeks talented individuals and spends time learning about them as people, I just feel like I have a sunrise and sunset in the work that I do. Along the way, through my “agency” experiences, my “HR Consulting” experiences, and my “sales” experiences as a professional, I have met many wonderfully talented people, learned about the “Heinz 57” iterations of business models, and looking upon my career to date, I can honestly say that the best experience I have had over the entire 13 years is the focusing of my work on how I wanted others to remember me. I have always focused on treating another as “thy neighbor”.

The Importance of Thank You Notes

It’s natural to follow up most business conversations with a “thank you,” and most of us do it without thinking twice. However, a

The Economic Cycle – What Stage Are We In?

By | October 23rd, 2015|

When I was a university student and studying Macroeconomics, I was introduced to the concept of the Economic Cycle, a 7 year period of expanding economic growth followed with a period of contraction or market correction, followed by a period of economic expansion and innovation, and so on. This, I have come to understand, is how the economies of the globe function. So as I look back on the past 7 years and calibrate where we are currently in the cycle, let me first promote the idea that this is normal economic stuff and should not be compared to or with the sensationalism of the broadcasting and print media. And we should not be misguided into believing that there isn’t hardship when the economy goes through certain stages of its cycle.

Money Talks? Not Always

By | April 15th, 2015|

Don’t get me wrong. Salary is important. I think most people want to know that they are getting paid what they are worth or at bare minimum, market value. Many people do leave their jobs for more money, or so they say. I think there is more to it than this. When you sit back and think about the percentage of our lifetime that we spend working and apart from our families, money can’t replace that.

Please Please Tell Me Now… Is There Something I Should Know? (or, the Importance of Candidate Feedback)

By | March 4th, 2015|

I’ve been in the workforce 20+ years. I’ve applied to quite a few jobs, and I’ve received quite a few interviews. And I’m still amazed how often I never heard back from the recruiter if I wasn’t the successful candidate. Of course I assumed (and was obviously correct) that I didn’t get the job after two weeks passed, then three, then a whole month without a peep. Some feedback would have been nice – after all, I did take time from my other job to interview, spent hours researching my prospective new employer, and one time even bought an expensive new suit and fabulous dress shoes to make that great impression.

Didn’t get Job – Shake It Off

By | December 3rd, 2014|

OK let’s face it we have all had that situation, you know it well. You see a role or a client and you think to yourself “that job was made for me”.  So you work hard on your resume, you get the interview, on the day of you dress to the nine’s and you are ready to kick it ballistic.  You show up and you NAIL the interview, this is feeling really good, you GOT THIS.
