It’s Not That I Don’t Like You (and Other Myths About Your Job Search)

by Cheryl Krestanowich in HR Trends , Recruitment 0 comments

I’ve done a lot of recruiting in my career. Because of that, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with countless candidates about their job-search experiences; the highs, the lows and some common misconceptions about what companies are/aren’t looking for in an employee. It can be frustrating to look for work, particularly when not every “recruiter”…

It’s the primary reason I see good candidates leaving the recruitment process and good companies missing out. Hiring Managers are…

by Devan Graham in Recruitment 0 comments

In the past few months, a significant amount of my time has been filled with recruiting on behalf of my clients for various professional roles and I have to say I’m disappointed.  Not in the skill sets that I’m finding, but in the effort candidates are putting forward throughout the process.  Perhaps I’m becoming jaded…

by Jaysa Toet in Recruitment 0 comments

Millennials have been a trending topic for LinkedIn articles, conference presentations, organization strategy sessions, and business conversations. My newsfeeds are constantly filled with Millennial articles and to be honest I’m kind of done with it. (Okay yes I’m writing this blog to weigh in with my thoughts, but after this I’m seriously done!)  I am…
