How Do I Find Out If My Resume Really IS The Problem?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Feb, 2010
Laura, I’m trying everything I know to get a call back for an interview, but it isn’t working. I’ve been spending a lot of time surfing job ads, and when I apply to something that seems perfect for me, I never get so much as a rejection letter. It’s getting to the point where I’m worn out from trying to figure out if there’s something wrong with my resume. Plus, I'm never sure what to do about it. Is it possible that...

by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010

The idea was born of economic necessity; Fridays off seemed like a way to give something back to our teammates in exchange for the salary sacrifices they were willing to make. Our teammates loved it! On Fridays they sleep late, have lunch with friends, start long weekends with their loved ones, and pursue their hobbies. It’s been a...

by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
As a recruiter, I was just talking to a client, a Director at a mid-size company, about a couple of positions he’s trying to fill and specifics of what he wants to see in a good candidate.

It’s The Little Things
by Dawn Bugni - Feb, 2010
Discouraged is a difficult place to live. We all visit occasionally, but wallowing in a cesspool of negativity doesn’t solve anything. And yes. I realize that leaving “discouraged” is a lot easier said than done. This in no way is meant to diminish personal circumstance, but I do know it’s much more difficult to sell your skill set when you’ve lost confidence in you and it’s difficult to have confidence in you when you can’t s...
