The Bad Meeting Fairy
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2010
We were crammed like sardines into a conference room smaller than my kid sister’s bedroom growing up, and believe me that’s Lilliputian - it was a sewing room before she came along and sort of surprised my parents. Anyway, the Bates team was crowded into our smallest meeting room debating whether the image of a Native American should be included on a PowerPoint slide with a proverb that we had recently learned could not be cr...
Selling Yourself in a Tight Economy
by Mary Jeanne Vincent - Apr, 2010
There is no doubt that today’s job search environment is very competitive. There is a lot of talk about a “jobless” recovery which seems like an oxymoron to me. Regardless of the talk, companies are hiring. Yes, the pace is slow and the interview process longer. Nevertheless, several of my clients have received offers in the last few months. Things are looking up. Having said that, I attribute much of their success to a...
Social Networking and Job Search
by Beth Colley - Apr, 2010
I have referenced Linkedin and methods on how to use social networking for your job search. I’d like to take some time to emphasize how important utilizing these tools are to your job search. Recently I invited some recruiters to sit down with job seekers as part of a job club that I lead in the Annapolis, MD area. There was a small group of us and we were very fortunate to be able to speak candidly about what they look for i...
Is Your HR Vetting Process Attracting or Repelling Your Best Candidates?
by Julie Walraven - Apr, 2010
Hiring and training is a drain on a budget in the best economic conditions so companies want to do it right the first time. Candidates are in abundance right now so HR and management have an open field. It makes sense that there would be a vetting process to make sure a candidate is a good fit for the organization and brings the right talents to the position. How much vetting is too much? Depending on the field and the p...

In his book "Getting Things Done," David Allen talks about the power of the "Two Minute Rule" as it applies to our productivity and keeping our heads empty of all the little things we need to do. The concept is simple: If you have a task to do -- a email that you just received, responding to a voice mail message, dealing with something that has landed on your desk, etc. and it can DEFINITELY be done in two minutes or less,...
Gen Y Employees, Felons, and Constructive...
by David Lee - Apr, 2010
Gen Y Employees, Felons, and Constructive Feedback Do you want your team members to welcome your constructive feedback—rather than defend against it or resent it? Do you want to help create an environment that inspires excellence and frowns on mediocrity? If so, you can benefit from two very diverse sources of excellence: 1) a non-profit organization that rehabs hardened criminals with a 90% success rate 2) a c...
A Bit of Pollyanna
by Nan S. Russell - Apr, 2010
"Stop being such a Pollyanna," a trusted, more experienced colleague counseled as we took the long route back to my office. He had just witnessed my project idea annihilated as co-workers eagerly argued why my idea wouldn't work, where it was flawed and why it shouldn't be funded. Despite naysayers in the room that day, I believed it was worth pursuing. Ultimately, it did receive funding and became, in time, a successful endea...

In networking, job interviews, and in your career...self awareness is critical to success. When people don’t really know their strengths and weaknesses, they often can’t answer questions well, sell themselves effectively, or emphasize their key qualities. In order to help someone help you when job networking, you must know what you are looking for and be able to articulate it well. When you are interviewing for a positio...

Identifying High Achievers by Examining Their Wake Effect
by Lou Adler - Apr, 2010
High achievers leave a lot of evidence in their wake. As long as you know what you’re looking for, much of this can be easily found during the work history review portion of the formal interview or during the phone screen. Once you find it, you then need to determine if the person is a fit for the actual job available, and if the job offers a significant career move for your candidate. This takes a bit longer, but if it’s a...
