Effectively Tiptoeing Into the Job Market Without Burning Bridges

By | June 26th, 2019|

In my home, the concept of tiptoeing brings me back – to a time where a bad dream would have my daughter begging to crawl into our cozy bed during the middle of the night. Thankfully, that tiptoeing has stopped. The only tiptoeing I hear anymore comes from skittish, mildly unhappy craftsmen that are considering a job search after years of steady work - caught between wanting to make a change and enjoying their current stability. Much has been made [...]

No one wants to delay the hiring process.  Frankly, if asked, hiring managers and candidates looking for jobs say that getting the job of their dreams takes far too long.  Hiring, even in the tightest of labor markets, though, is a marathon (not a sprint). Job postings become stale, searches tend to drag, offers linger and decisions work through the ecosystems of the Human Resources chain at, too often, a snail’s pace.

By | February 21st, 2019|

We’d be naive to say that working alongside like-minded people isn’t initially easier. Yes, the first day for a new employee entering an environment that feels entirely comfortable can make the on-boarding process seem simpler for all.  Does that first day comfort, though, translate into long- term employee performance? The data suggests that it might not. In fact, if it is true that nearly half of new hires fail in the first 18 months of employment because they cannot assimilate [...]

Workplace Trends Candidates and Hiring Managers Shouldn’t Ignore

By | February 19th, 2019|

I might describe the Forbes list of 19 Workplace Predictions for 2019 as, both, on the mark and completely off-the-wall.  I agree with some points and disagree with others. The list was proactive, but, more importantly, brought up workplace trends that may scope the work of candidates looking for jobs and hiring managers looking to fill positions during the upcoming year - Trends For Job-Seekers: There is a workplace trend in candidates advancing their job searches through their own personal network.
