    A typical worker is driven to do meaningful things, at least in my opinion. What a worker looks for in a job has changed through the generations – from lifelong employment to getting money to doing something with purpose (admittedly, these are big generalities). Actually, an ideal job has aspects from all three generations: career security, comfortable pay, and impactfulness. Purpose, sometimes defined in a mission statement, should be part of a company culture. Moreover, it should be used as an instrument to attract and retain talent. Millennials are thinking about the purpose of a…

  • What would you have done in Nazi Germany?

    Penelope Trunk
    28 Aug 2015 | 8:57 am
    I ask myself this question all the time: What would I have done if I had lived in Nazi Germany? I am Jewish, so I ask myself if I’d have left early on. Early enough. When I could have left. I watch lots of movies and read lots of books about life in Nazi Germany. For example: This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen is a phenomenal, eye-opening memoir from a Polish, Christian boy in a concentration camp. Most memoirs are from Jews, who were trying to not get killed. But the Christians in the camps could stay alive as long as they would do the most disgusting work: this Polish boy had…

It’s so embarrassing to find out that all you care about is power. Well, power and money, because money is the measure of power. Well, and also with control, the more control I have over things I can build my power base with, and keep the money flowing. Okay. So that’s me. And when I found out, at first I was like, “Oh my god, I can’t let anyone know about this.” Then I thought, “Oh, that must be why I always…

    This is a picture from when my oldest son was five years old. I have very few pictures of him at this age. Maybe twenty. Because I was never home. I worked almost 100% of my waking hours. And often I slept only four hours a night. I did not walk him to school. I did not make dinner. I did not put him to bed. My (now-ex) husband did all of that. In exchange for giving up all my family time, I launched a startup (with two, twenty-year-old guys, of course). Do you want to launch a startup and have kids? That’s what it looks like. And you know what? It’s fair. Because I had someone…

    manzanitakids.com If feminism is about having the right to make choices, then it’s also about the obligation to make a choice. You cannot choose to have a spouse who’s a breadwinner and who shares everything 50/50. You cannot choose to have everything in life but only do it half the time. Having something—anything—is about commitment. And you cannot choose to have everything up to your standards but also allow other peoples’ standards to prevail. Being a real feminist means you cannot have everything. So women who are feminists are self-assured enough to make…

    I think I spent the last decade deciding if it’s okay to give up my career for my kids. I am not splitting hairs any more. I am not writing as if I don’t have kids. I am not writing as if I’m in a permanent identity crisis.  I’m not writing screaming tirades to defend myself. Instead, I am choosing peace. Finally. I am settling into the reality that I work relatively few hours a day. I can’t work with other people because my work hours are too erratic. And my earning power, just like the research says, probably topped out at age 40. So here are things I think…

    26 Aug 2015 | 6:41 am
    Having your department compared to the DMV isn’t very flattering, but that’s what is happening to many IT departments.That’s because many CIOs are focused on the technology and they don’t really care about the user experience, hence the DMV reference.The comparison is made in a new book, “The Big Shift in IT Leadership,” by author Hunter Muller, who contends that many CIOs remain focused inward, only concerned with technology. But a small portion of CIOs “see the writing on the wall,” and know they need to “play the game at a higher level” by shifting their focus outward…

    Do you know what’s more stressful than a taxing job? Not having a job at all. Being on what feels like an endless job search produces high levels of stress, which can lead to health issues and changes in mood or attitude. In turn, these changes can impact your entire job search experience — for the worse. To be a viable candidate for a job, you need to be in good mental and physical shape. No one wants to hire a person who comes to work feeling sick and run down everyday. More than any other generation, Millennials are the worst at taking care of themselves, according to Aon…
  • The Fastest Way to Get More Freelance Work? Go Global

    If you’re looking to recession-proof your freelancing business, boost your income, or just expand your horizons and start leveraging your strengths, there’s an easy way to do all of this with one simple technique: Go global. Consider, for instance, that over the last decade, as the world’s media collapsed and started finding ways to reinvent itself, India’s traditional media was booming. Smart freelancers — and there were many — looked to countries outside their own and started bringing in freelance work from economies that were still somewhat stable. In the globally-connected…

But when it comes to knowing the right people, they are pros. They rub elbows with the elite. Some of them know royalty. Some of them ARE royalty (by marriage, of course).

    28 Aug 2015 | 10:00 am
    I hear Malia Obama likes theater, tennis and volleyball. But you’ll rarely hear about that. Our young girls are little more than eye candy, and even one of the nation’s most respected newspapers feeds this narrative. This week, a story teased on the front page of the New York Times was all about Malia’s fashion forwardness. So much for keeping the world informed. It made me wonder if Obama had a son whether media would be focused on how he looked. This section in particular got me mad: “In June, when disembarking from the plane on an official trip to London, Malia…

    Uber, the car service that’s sweeping the globe, is facing one of the biggest challenges of its young life but workers everywhere should take notice, not just Wall Street. A California court recently deemed one of its drivers an employee and not an independent contractor, and that means the driver may now be eligible for everything from minimum wage to expenses reimbursement. This from a Bloomberg article on the ruling: The ruling by the agency headed by Commissioner Julie Su, an appointee of Governor Jerry Brown, was filed in San Francisco state court Tuesday. It stemmed from a wage…
  • On-Call Workforce - A Good Call?

    The growing use of on-call staffing is being scrutinized for undermining employees’ economic security and work-life fit. The latest probe comes from New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman whose office sent letters to 13 large retailers saying that the practice may not be complying with state laws. This from the letter, via a Wall Street Journal article published today: Unpredictable work schedules take a toll on all employees, especially those in low-wage sectors. Without the security of a definite work schedule, workers who must be “on call” have difficulty making…

    Leaders do have to tell people exactly what to do when a person isn't yet competent--and confident--about the task or assignment. (The whole "leader" thing isn't just about high-concept and vision). But how do you develop managers who are knowledgeable and committed? You can build increased confidence and deeper understanding by asking questions designed to help them make their own discoveries and decisions. Here are seven questions to get you started as  a "coaching" leader: As you become more comfortable with probing questions, you'll develop your own. Do you have any favorites now?

    If you've ever wondered what executive coaches really do that adds great value, it's this: We create a relationship that enables our client to clearly see reality.  Life isn't a part of business; business is a part of life. So, everything of consequence leads to confronting and resolving some kind of issue that leads to a choice about personal change. All of the choices aren't always huge, but they are necessary in order to develop more healthy and effective patterns of work and leadership.

    The notion of Employee Engagement has been with us for a while now. I noticed in a meeting last week that everyone was passionate when we started discussing "engagement". But the longer we talked, the less I was convinced that we were talking about the same thing. In fact, we all had a personal, sensible, gut level idea of what it meant. But the "definition gap" emerged when we began talking about how to approach the issue. Predictable, actually. Whenever you find yourself in disagreement about "how" to do something, it's a signal to back up a step andagree on a common definition of "what"…

  • Being an Achiever

    You become an achiever by achieving your goals. If you achieve your goals, you’re an achiever. If you don’t achieve your goals, you’re not an achiever. This is a simple, binary way to think about achievement. To achieve means to reach, attain, or accomplish. What you choose to reach, attain, or accomplish is up to you. The difference between an achiever and a non-achiever is largely a matter of attention. Non-achievers give their goals little attention, if they bother to set goals at all. Achievers give their goals sufficient attention so as to reach, attain, or accomplish…

But many of the survivors were able to escape the damaged vehicle and ran off on foot in different directions. Most of the escapees have since been recaptured, but many are still at large.

    28 Aug 2015 | 3:30 am
    The day rarely consists of major decisions.It is instead filled with a collection of small decisions that, when combined with the small decisions of other days, will have an enormous influence on our lives.We don't recognize the pattern until later, if ever.So what can we do? Schedule our priorities and then, day after day, strive to make the right small decisions. We can also stop looking for the big ones. We'll know those when they arrive but the small and important ones are often well-disguised.

    Who am I?  Who cares?  Good questions.  It's my site, so I'm going dig in once in a awhile by telling you more about who I am - via a "Stuff I Like" series.  Nothing too serious, just exploring the micro-niche that resides at the base of all of our lives.  Potshots encouraged in the comments. I'm a sucker for a good acoustic version of a known standard.  I'm Gen X, so the whole MTV unplugged thing was during my formative years.  Nirvana unplugged?  Yes.  Alice in Chains? Please. But you can't get better acoustic in my mind than hearing that Aussie…
  • They Did Not Suck: 5 Rules For Saying Why You Got Fired or Left Your Last Job...

    Kris Dunn
    27 Aug 2015 | 5:00 am
    Gather round the monitor kids, because I’m about to break off some knowledge that a lot of you don’t fully understand. Let’s start with a general rule: If you’re interviewing for a job you really want and you’re not currently employed, the elephant in the room is why you aren’t still employed with that company.  Now let’s enhance that a bit and say your previous company did not lay you off, and they won’t be willing to say you were laid off.  That means you left or were fired. Which means you have to talk about why you aren’t at that company any more. With that in mind,…
  • SELECTING MANAGERS: What's The Right Mix of Functional Area Expert vs. Ability to Deal With People?

    Kris Dunn
    25 Aug 2015 | 7:41 am
    It's the classic Catch 22... We know we shouldn't simply make the best widget maker the best widget maker manager, but.... but.... We have nothing else to base on decisions on who gets promoted to manager other than... Functional Area Expertise. Ugh.  This is on my mind again due to my friend Paul Hebert writing on the topic over at What Is Paul Thinking? (which you should subscribe to).  From Paul: "You're doing it wrong! You keep promoting the people who are good at the “function” of a job into a managerial role. But they suck at the role of being a manager. They…

    In the wake of the New York Times article on Amazon, I thought it would be worth sharing the past post by Redfin CEO Glen Kelman, who wonders aloud if all the fun, benefit focused features of the GPTW actually hinders employee development: "The problem is that the young engineers earning that much become well-fed farm animals at the very moment in their lives when they should be running like wild horses. Many now remind me of middle-aged men, collecting expensive scotch or taking up John-Kerry hobbies like kite-surfing and race-car-driving at the age of 24. What changes these folks…

Kris Dunn (Kinetix RPO, The HR Capitalist) and Tim Sackett (HRU Technical Resources, TimSackett.com) think that needs to change.  That's why they created this series - The Top 20 Branded HR Pros(sponsored by the team at Glassdoor).

  • How Far You Can Push Employees Without Resorting to ‘the Amazon Way’

    Evil HR Lady
    28 Aug 2015 | 5:34 am
    The internet is full of stories about Amazon’s work environment. You have, of course,The New York Times claiming it’s the worst place ever. Then you have Jeff Bezos coming out and saying, “The article doesn’t describe the Amazon I know or the caring Amazonians I work with every day.” Employees (and former employees) have come out on both sides. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Some people thrive in the environment. Others wilt. Many startups would love to grow the way Amazon has. The question is, just how hard can you push your employees? If the worst of the worst…
  • How Chipotle’s Plan to Hire 4,000 Workers in One Day Is Sure to Backfire

    Evil HR Lady
    27 Aug 2015 | 3:34 am
    First and foremost, I love burritos and I love Chipotle. So, when I hear that Chipotle is planning to hire 4,000 workers in one day, my heart simultaneously jumps (more burritos!) and sinks (stunt hiring is not productive). Here’s why hiring like this is bound to backfire. Publicity is good, but… Yes, this stunt will cause people who weren’t otherwise thinking of applying to Chipotle to show up and apply. This is a good thing–recruiting is often difficult and attracting people can be hard. However, just who is going to show up? Well, that remains to be seen, of course, but…

    Evil HR Lady

    I have been an exempt supervisor for the past ten years. With all this talk of the changes to exempt federal minimum wage, I have some questions. I’ve already heard rumors in my company that their intentions are to make the exempt employees who are making less than the proposed new minimum wage into nonexempt employees and schedule us for 36 hours per week. My question is, will they be able to lower my pay below what I’m making now? In other words, say I am paid salary, and if it was to be broken down hourly it would be $16/hour, can they decide they want to give me $14/hour? The…

    21 Aug 2015 | 4:30 am
    Someone I had to let go recently is making his departure very difficult for everyone. He was fired, not because he was a horrible person, but because he was not getting the job done. He just is not a fit for the environment – and over the years could not improve his performance. We provided him with two options. Stay and undergo continued evaluation after re-evaluation until he improved, or leave and get a settlement. He chose the former at first, then opted for the latter and is now saying he was coerced into resigning. I work for an organization that is very public and visible and the…
  • Working at Amazon is Hell. So What?

    Evil HR Lady
    20 Aug 2015 | 4:29 am
    The New York Times just published an expose of how difficult life is at Amazon. I suppose their goal was to make us feel bad for their poor employees. Now, to be clear, I’m happy to criticize Amazon when they deserve to be criticized–I completely disagree with their decision to not pay their employees during security checks–even though the supreme court agreed with them. I just don’t have a problem with a company that demands a lot from their employees. Amazon corporate employees work long hours, don’t get fancy benefits and free lunches, and are expected to dedicate their souls to…

    The Sunday New York Times article on Amazon’s workplace culture has generated all kinds of buzz. Most commentators join the attack, while some defend Amazon’s practices. The stories are all over the map, from branding Amazon as an evil empire to describing its culture as one that’s apropos for an challenging entrepreneurial trail-blazer. What are we to believe and what does this controversy say about the modern workplace? Think Subcultures, Not Single Culture First, I’m not surprised in the disparity of stories.

    For over a decade, I built online businesses. My focus was primarily marketing. Create content, promote it, and optimize website conversions. Over time, I built a reputation in the industry by blogging, networking, and speaking at industry conferences like Pubcon. In fact, I attended Pubcon’s signature event in Las Vegas ten years in a row. Not a bad way to rack up Vegas trips in your twenties. Last year, I suddenly changed course. I sold my businesses, and found myself in a brand new world where I knew no one (and no one knew me). Perhaps even more daunting, my decade-long run building…

  • Five Observations For Surviving The Modern Workplace

    This post might serve as some indication as to the type of week I’ve had. One where the veil has been pulled aside to further clarify some observations that I’ve noticed in my long and winding career journey. 1. Our organization is not our family. This very notion that my organization is a family has always made me cringe. Unless we’re related by blood or marriage or some other legal compact, there’s not one shred of truth to this. Further, it feels cultish, like I’ve joined up with the Sunshine Carpet Cleaners. Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, goes so far as to say that its…

I want to skip the first four steps and get right to the end point. And yet, I know that totally ignores opportunities for personal growth and the learning that comes with the sometimes long and tedious journey. Now, let’s add that I am a recovering perfectionist, which means that I want to make the colossal jump to step five with brilliant strategy, ideal focus, and flawless execution. Kind of…

At the time I felt anything but mentally strong. I was just trying to get through each day, moment by moment, without completely losing my shit. Some days I managed to hold it together; others, I was in one of the office bathroom stalls quietly praying to just not exist. It’s not that I wanted to die, I just didn’t want the continued…

On the surface, the answer may seem obvious, but the question persists because it’s truly difficult to answer. We all give for different reasons and with different motivations. Yet, the question of “Why?” follows the challenge of “How?”: How do we motivate giving of all types: money, time, talent, and energy? As The NonProfit Times wrote in a recent blogpost: “There is no denying that you can’t force someone to give if they don’t want to.” To…

    In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month and Veterans Day November 11, I gleaned some practice tips from recent research studies on physical disability and career development.The goal is to inform and link career development practitioners working with disabled clients to research and resources they may not be aware of. Why should we pay attention to disability in career development? In 2005, one in five U.S. residents reported some level of disability (U.S. Census 2008) with the number rising with large numbers of returning veterans. Individuals with…

    Thursday’s decision by the National Labor Relations Board broadening the criteria for joint employer status may not have much impact on staffing firms, says the American Staffing Association. In a press release this morning, Stephen Dwyer, the ASA’s general counsel, said, “Although we cannot definitively predict the long-term impact of the decision, prior board decisions that effectively made it easier for temporary workers to unionize did not demonstrably result in increased unionization of such workers, and that largely remains the case today.” The NLRB’s…

    In a 3-2 decision, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced a broad new standard for determining whether two businesses are “joint employers” for purposes of collective bargaining. Under this new standard set forth in Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc., joint employment now exists even where one company only has the right to exert indirect or potential control over the terms and conditions of another company’s employees.

  • The U.S. Economy Actually Grew 3.7% In The Second Quarter

    Gene Giannotta
    28 Aug 2015 | 4:22 am
    The United States actually experienced a strong 3.7% growth rate in the second quarter this year, according to a Commerce Department revision announced Thursday. Growth had previously been estimated at 2.3%, positive but not as robust as many would like. The first quarter only saw growth of 0.6%, a figure that has not been revised since being announced earlier this year. Second-quarter growth was driven by higher-than-expected consumer and government spending, as well as increased exports. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker said that the revision “demonstrates sustained economic growth…

    27 Aug 2015 | 4:10 am
    A week of wild stock market swings continued on Thursday as China’s benchmark Shanghai Composite index closed up 5.3 percent. China’s other major indexes were also up, with the Shenzhen Composite gaining 3.58 percent and the tech-focused ChiNext also up over 3 percent. The rally ended a five-day losing streak for Chinese markets that persisted despite the government’s attempts to stabilize trading through a new pension investment policy and surprise interest rate cut. In fact, Thursday’s bounce could itself be a product of Beijing’s desperation given its somewhat miraculous nature.

    Electronics giant Panasonic on Thursday said it will stop making lithium-ion batteries and will shut down the factory that produces the batteries in Beijing. The company will cut 1,300 jobs as it aims to produce higher-grossing items such as electric car batteries. The plant has been open for 15 years and produces batteries for simple mobile phones and digital cameras. Both of those devices have been swept under the rug in most parts of the world because of the emergence of smartphones. According to Nikkei business daily, the plant’s biggest customer for years was Nokia, which sold to…

After examining the current market traders and their algorithm based strategies, Cuban says he hedged his bets and actually earned money in today’s market. In an interview with Fox Business, Mr. Cuban reveals: “In 2008 we didn’t have high frequency trading the way we have it today. In 2008, ETFs weren’t being arbed… the way they are being arbed today.

Foreign markets, including those in Asia and Europe, ended the day down but with smaller dips than earlier in the week. Shanghai’s benchmark index had another yo-yo day of trading but ended 1.3% down. European markets, including those in Paris, Frankfurt, and the FTSE 100 in London closed down by more than 1%.

As the economist Milton Friedman depressingly put it: The business of business is business. He argued that a CEO who spent resources on anything that did not enhance shareholder value was failing his duties and could be fired or sued. This kind of thinking is still incredibly prevalent in the business world and it leads to attitudes and actions that are incredibly damaging. This is the kind of thinking that lets a corporation:…

My contention here, however, is that the most basic right—the right that makes all other rights possible—is the right to quit.

Perhaps a student list would be more appropriate.” Not all lists are equal – especially when one list is truly about 3 or 4 lists based on category. All of the following is an observation not about the merit of anyone listed but on the shrewd click bait strategy behind it or simply, exceptional laziness to avoid the extra work of splitting lists into their proper categories to make them relevant.

    Don’t make the mistake of thinking that having a compensation plan is the same has having an effective one. There are several warning signs that can alert employers when their compensation plan is not effective. 1. Poor job documentation. Even though it seems simplistic, if there is no focus on creating the appropriate documentation, the whole foundation of the program is at risk. Analyze each job. Ensure there are accurate job descriptions and job titles as this is one of the first signs that the overall compensation plan might not be doing what it is designed to do. (After all, how can…

In conducting a market-based pay study, you’ll need to make decisions that directly reflect the organization’s compensation philosophy.

    Karl Staib - WHN Author and Speaker
    18 Aug 2015 | 2:43 am
    Before I start a project I take a break. It could be a short pause with a deep breath or a quick walk to help me get my mind focused. The worst thing anyone can do at work is start a project without looking at where to put their focus. They jump in and make a ton of mistakes. Lately I’ve been taking a Kermit the Frog dancing break. I swivel my arms from side to side and stamp my feet. It helps clear out the cobwebs that can form from focused work. It helps that half my work week I work from a home office where no one can see me. I don’t dance like Kermit the Frog at my co-working space.

    There’s a myth I want to dispel right now. People believe that if you chase mastery you will be happy. This makes me mad. They say don’t pursue your passions just focus on being really good at something. They are fools because they want to give you the magic bullet to solve your career unhappiness. Before you yell at me and site 10 articles that say we shouldn’t pursue our passions. Like this one and this one. I know how hard it is to chase career happiness. There is no magic bullet. Chasing mastery can only make you happy if you have a balanced approach. This is where most people get…

    I stand on the porch and look out into the woods. I feel my shoulders release their tension just a little bit more. It’s the 5th day of our vacation and I’m still feeling my muscles release stress. Four months earlier I was at a conference and while I was there I was trying to be everywhere at once. I wore myself out. After the conference was over I took a long morning to myself before I headed to the airport. I told myself that this was “ME” time. I was fooling myself. I was just too exhausted to do anything, but get a cup of coffee and stare into space. I Was A Fraud After trying to…

    Of all the buildings in Texas my favorite has to be the Alamo. You can feel the pain that happened there. Even the walls look like they are crying.There is something cathartic about walking through the historic building. I can just hand over my worries to the building. Then after you thoughts are cleansed you go outside into the courtyard. As you walk around the asphalt paths there are soda machines tucked back by the bathrooms. They make me smile. We can’t help but infuse modern living into museums. It’s who we are. Do you want do work you care about? You have to start by building a…

    “Winter is much like unrequited love; cold and merciless.” – Kellie Elmore It was one rainy and stormy Sunday night of the year 2006. My object of affection was sitting in front of me while we were eating at a fast food chain when I had finally found the courage to ask him what exactly we were. My brain told me that I was not supposed to ask him since we’re grown ups and we didn’t need labels anymore. On the other hand, my heart was dying to know the answer and kept on muttering: “You have to know”. And you guessed right, the heart won. So I asked my…
  • There Is Courage In Being Vulnerable

    Sally Buchanan-Hagen
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:35 am
    Vulnerability is not weak – it is letting people in and showing them your flaws, and there is nothing braver than that. My dog is 10 years old and we’ve had him for that length of time. Only recently has he been comfortable enough to roll onto his back so we could scratch his stomach. It used to frustrate and hurt me that he wouldn’t trust us enough to roll over but it has occurred to me that our proud dog doesn’t like making himself vulnerable and I drew a connection with myself. I trust and love my family with all my heart but it is with extreme reluctance that I ‘roll over’…

    As part of my entrepreneurship tour of Israel sponsored by Vibe Israel, I had the opportunity to learn about the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), or the Israel Army. IDF service is mandatory after young male and female citizens turn 18. When I first heard about this, I'll admit that I didn't necessarily think it was a good thing. However, after seeing what the IDF teaches in terms of critical business skills, I've come to believe that it provides a great training ground for young professionals heading into the work world - especially those who want to start their own businesses.

In truth, I was happy… and I didn’t feel right about saying that I wasn’t happy.  And finally, I realized that while I was happy, I simply was not satisfied. That meant…

You can’t slow it down or speed it up.However, we can control where we spend our time and take actions to reduce or eliminate time wasters. Managing time is really all about managing ourselves.

In his Fortune article and new book, Humans are Underrated, Colvin certainly has his finger on the right three issues. What’s unique is his framing of the issue of technological obsolescence. Typically, the framing is around what computers can’t do. Year after year we try to estimate the answer to that problem. But year after year software developers and algorithms…

    July 4th is a good time to look back at the founding fathers--and especially their attitude toward the Constitution. Many scholars and judges could learn something--especially those who, like Scalia, are fixated on "original intent." What the founders absolutely did not want was to be embalmed, or to have their prescriptions taken as sacred script. That fundamentalism is not only wrong-headed, it's as stupid and dangerous as the religious fundamentalism in Evangelicalism, Judaism and Islam. And, surprisingly for most, Anthony Scalia's "original…

    Listening is far more difficult, more fatiguing and often more frustrating than talking. But no, you can't become a better listener by listening harder. And furthermore, even the best listeners have to bite their tongues to stop from reacting, interrupting or verbally identifying with the person talking. But there are a few simple ways to make certain your listening is truly effective. Effective listeners listen for different levels of meaning. The linguistic level is simply that to which the message refers. “Jim can’t come to the team meeting.” The individual words of…

    Talent pools. Talent communities.

Conceptually, it sounds really good. In practice, it reminds me of a community pool. When I was a kid growing up in the city, we couldn’t wait for the public pool to open each summer.

In conversations with leaders in both small and large companies who work in a variety of industries, one common challenge is voiced to me again and again: Recruiting and hiring talent in a world where the candidates are in the driver’s seat, and companies are facing increasing challenges finding workers with the skills and experience needed to fill their open…

    One of the most unusual candidates I ever worked with back when I was a job recruiter, was someone who had basically worked for five different law firms in a five-year period. He had absolutely stellar credentials, having attended the best schools, and having worked at the best law firms. The only problem was that it seemed he could not last more than a year at any place where he worked. When I started sending him out to various law firms, all the prospective employers came back and in no uncertain terms told me they were not interested in the guy. It was the strangest thing and I could not…

    Too many people approach their job searches from the perspective of their own needs. They need a job, they need to make more money, they need flexible working hours and benefits. This is not the way to get a job. In fact, this “me-too” method of job seeking is unlikely to get you anywhere. Several months ago I was in the airport in New Delhi, India, with time on my hands. I started looking around one of the shops, and after a few minutes, the person working the counter posed a surprising question. “Can you give me a job in the United States?” he asked. “Why would I hire you?” I…

It was a long article, and I was very interested in this airplane because at one point in my life I was studying to be a pilot.

    When I was in school, I would study at least a couple of hours each day in the library. While there, I noticed that the best students were always very focused. They were not distracted like poorer students were. A poor student looks around and looks up frequently. The poor students try to start conversations, make jokes, and laugh at things going on in the library. When I was studying with the best students, I could feel their energy and focus. They blocked out external stimuli and their study time was extremely productive. In fact, just about every good student had the ability to focus…

    When I was growing up in Detroit, I went to school with kids whose parents were the Chief Executive Officers of major auto companies and were in other high level roles. Sometimes I would turn on the television and see the same men I’d eaten dinner with at a friend’s house on the nightly news giving a press conference in Washington, or speaking about an issue of national importance. Another friend’s father was the CEO of a major national bank and, by the time I was 13 or 14, I was smart enough to realize I could learn a lot from these men.

    © Giulio_Fornasar – Fotolia.com Just like a resume, there is no such thing as a perfect interview, yet some conversations are worse than others. Your handshake, introduction, apparel, gestures and answers to questions can trigger instant rejection from a hiring manager or executive recruiter. We all have bad days, and cannot fire on all cylinders 24/7. We are all anxious about interviews, and most likely have more negative thoughts than positive ones when leaving the interview room. It’s important to distinguish your own worries from any actual errors you need to follow up on. Did…

On the other hand, building and retaining relationships with recruiters, even when you’re gainfully employed, can reap significant rewards for your career management. Due to their extraordinarily hectic schedules, you will have very limited access to personal interaction with an executive recruiter, and the telephone will be the most likely platform for your initial…

    It’s not unusual for employees to be driven to succeed, especially in a company which is striving for success and prides itself on hiring highly motivated staff.

    You’ve wondered, right? You thought setting and achieving big goals would make you feel better, happier. If we’re being honest, maybe even a little invincible. There’s more to it though. Behind the thrill of setting big goals is also a little anxiety. You don’t talk about it much, but there’s that nagging voice. What will people think of you if you fail? What will you think of yourself? It’s exactly that fear that keeps you head down and focused. You want to land that dream job. You want to finally pay off your debt.

    Maybe it was because an awful lot of family members died before I’d even graduated from college. Or maybe I believed my anxiety was really some sort of sixth sense. But I always suspected I would die young. So when my doctor asked me to schedule a follow-up in person right away, I knew my test results must have been fairly serious. I felt both scared and vindicated. Prior to that appointment, I would have rated my health as outstanding. I rarely get colds, I’m moderately active (thanks to not having a car), and I sleep and eat pretty well. There were no obvious signs that my health was…

I do everything fast—from walking to talking to achieving. Give me a project and let me run–and I mean RUN. I love to be busy and in-control and even a little overwhelmed.

Here’s the thing: One frog decided to jump off the log, but that doesn’t mean he necessarily did anything about it. Decision is not the same thing as action. We often confuse it as such, but deciding to become a millionaire is entirely different from actually doing what it takes to make it happen.

    Like any other conversation, a job interview is a two-way street: It’s as much about how well you listen as it is about what you say. And there’s more to listening than simply hearing another person’s words. How interviewers sit, how they ask their questions, and what they do while listening to your answers can tell you an awful lot about the direction the conversation’s taking. Of course, during an interview, the manager is in the driver’s seat, so it’s critical that you’re able to read their cues.

  • How Long Should a Resume Be?

    Pamela Skillings
    26 Aug 2015 | 7:48 am
    Why The Answer to "How Long Should a Resume Be?" Hasn't Changed The experts say that your resume should be one page long exactly. Is that good advice or outdated? The truth is that one-page resumes are generally preferred by hiring professionals for good reasons — the one-page format forces the candidate to focus on the most relevant details and makes it easier for the recruiter or hiring manager to scan for the needed skills, certifications, abilities, and experience. We reached out to several hiring managers and recruiters and got similar input from everyone: Resumes are meant to be…

  • Acing the American Job Interview (for International, ESOL, and Multilingual Candidates)

    Pamela Skillings
    1 May 2015 | 8:54 pm
    Job interviews are challenging enough when everybody’s speaking his or her first language. They’re even trickier for international ESOL students and candidates — and anyone who was raised in a different culture and/or with a different primary language. The American job interview is different from an interview in China or Brazil or the UK. Some differences are minor and others are more daunting. I have worked with hundreds of international students and job candidates — and coached hundreds of them to land jobs and internships at prestigious U.S.-based firms. I have seen similar…

    Jaime Petkanics
    25 Aug 2015 | 10:09 am
    Last week I had the opportunity to speak to the local leaders of the Levo community about some job search advice and a really good question came up: What should you do in terms of your resume if your job title doesn’t accurately reflect the scope or nature of your job? As I’ve written about in the past, it is important for your reader to have a really clear understanding of what you’ve done in under 6 seconds. Since your reader is skimming, job titles are a pretty important aspect of the resume. If a recruiter is going through 100 applications in their system, they may not…

    I think we can all agree that being informed is seen as a good quality, in work and in life. As far as your career goes, the most impactful thing you can do is become knowledgeable about industry-specific trends and news. In the fashion industry, that meant most people picked up a copy of WWD in the morning. In finance, the go-to was the Wall Street Journal. That being said, no work environment is immune to discussing what’s newsworthy in general, and you never want to respond to, “Did you hear about X?” with a blank stare. So I’m really excited to share an awesome…

    I was sitting with a group of former colleagues last week and the topic of how we got our last jobs came up. I happen to have gotten my last job by emailing my resume to a general jobs mailbox and heard back a few days later. I’ve also recruited and hired many people who have applied through online job boards, so it absolutely CAN and does happen. That being said, if a recruiter is screening through a batch of 200 resumes, the ones that they are going to select randomly are going to be a pretty exact fit for the job which is why networking is SO critical.   They’re not…

    For anyone considering a job shift, or currently seeking employment, there are some compelling reasons not to take the summer off. Dropping out of the market for two or three months leaves you out of the flow—and out of the running when new opportunities arise. Keep in mind that the slow-down of the summer holidays affects business, but not necessarily the hiring cycle. Even six years after the end of the Great Recession, the job climate continues to rebound. Companies remain in flux—and layoffs such as those recently announced by Microsoft continue—but job creation continues…

Since I wrote the blog, establishing and thinking about an online identity has become even more critical. Social media is pervasive in everything we do.

Think of all the hacker introverts. They think, design, and build concepts. Aren’t they leaders too? Yes, in their own way. (In my opinion, you build a team with social and visionary leaders – elevate the collective intelligence of the team. Guess I also think a team is comprised of leaders – a flat hierarchy.

Actually, an ideal job has aspects from all three generations: career security, comfortable pay, and impactfulness.

    Why gender equality needs to be a focus in today’s economy. Women have been fighting for gender rights, both inside and outside the workplace for centuries, and it seems, finally, the fight may be coming to an end, at least within the workforce.

They’re usually the ones who look happy, who sit upright and who, if they catch you looking at them, smile back. Confidence illuminates in those who have it and […]The post 5 Ways to Look (and Sound) More Confident appeared first on JobisJob Blog.

Career security used to be baked into our jobs. There was a time when you could rely on an employer for relative long term security. In the social age this has changed. Businesses are changing their resourcing by choosing on-demand models, technology is providing mass automation and globalisation is shipping white-collar work overseas. The economy for workers has shifted and people are adapting. We see this in the rise of the freelance…

Indeed the chaos, pace and pressure of this present day shift can often leave us in a state of bewilderment, a slump, a funk or a rut. Perhaps, from time to time, like me, you find yourself in a valley of deep shadow wondering how to change the apparent trajectory of your vocation whilst trying to balance it all. "I need answers!"

    Phone interviews play a key role in understanding a good deal about prospective candidate and also helps to eliminate applicants who do not meet the minimum levels of proficiency. As phone interview is a key screening tool it needs to be carried out in a planned manner. The HR personnel needs to do the homework properly. It is necessary to have in-depth understanding of the jargons related to issues on hand to sieve out unfit candidates. Though skills are a vital aspect of selecting candidates, desired attitude and approach is equally important. A job interviewer must frame questions that…

    “The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.”–Henry Ford. At the age of 12 years, Henry Ford spent his maximum time in a machine shop. His vision was to make a car of his own, practical and affordable. During his early business days, he faced consistent failures. But, his passion and determination never allowed him to dither from his objective. And then as we all know, he became one of the most successful industrialist, the founder of Ford Motor Company! That’s how triumphing stories are created. Isn’t it apt for…

    While going for an interview, you are always a bundle of nerves. Not knowing who will be interviewing you or what questions will be asked, always puts a person on edge. However, it is important to maintain your behavior cool and answer questions confidently but not to the extent that makes you appear over-confident! Questions asked at interviews are usually standard. Memorizing answers will not help as employers look for different replies. Reviewing some frequently asked questions gives you some idea of what to expect. When you don’t know what to expect, you may end up blundering. For those…

    Q: I was contacted by a recruiter and somehow (work schedule, friends visit, laziness) I missed to respond in time. How do I go back letting her know the reasons without coming out as too apologetic (on any other day, she would have heard from me within 24 hours). Any suggestions? JIB:  Situations like not responding to client, boss, recruiter, and loved ones do happen. It is natural consequence of being part of this incessantly fast paced and insanely connected world. There is nothing to fret and as long as you keep your communication open and honest, these delays can help bring out the…

JIB: You have to strike a balance. If you already have experience in the field you are interviewing for, other than preparing for generic questions, learning about company and the future of the company and you, if you are selected, having some good questions to ask, you really cannot prepare any more.

That’s enough social interaction for one day.” Yup, that’s the shirt I gave my sister a few years ago, as my way of finally showing her I understood and appreciated her need for quiet, for space, and for not sharing every thought she was having every second she has it. Like I have been known to do. But being a natural extrovert, I had to learn this. Often the hard way. (Sigh.)

For the sake of this article, let’s go with the simplest of definitions: A job is a paid activity primarily to pay your bills. A job serves the purpose of paying for your livelihood and maintaining your lifestyle. It doesn’t include passion or skills that you necessarily want to work on. A career is a specific skill set that you practice. Over time that practice gives you some competitive advantage in the marketplace. Not…

    Dear Coach Wolfgang, Is the resume a thing of the past? Thanks for the question. Lately, I’ve been hearing people I respect dismiss the resume as an irrelevant tool in today’s electronic and online age. The argument says that all a candidate needs today is a LinkedIn profile. Let’s look at that statement. I think what this really means is that all a hiring manager or recruiter needs is enough information on social networks to determine if you should be invited for an interview or not.

We invest a lot of time and energy at work, so when things go bad it’s hard to leave it at the door when you clock out. The same thing is true for our personal lives. The fact is- It’s difficult to keep our lives compartmentalized, no matter how hard we try. If something is going on at home or in your personal life, there are things you can do to ensure that it has minimal impact on…
  • Dealing With That One Annoying Person at Work

    Juli Richardson
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:46 pm
    In life, there’s always that one person. At work, it can seem worse because you see that person day in and day out. If it’s your boss, or someone you work closely with, the problem is only amplified. If you’ve never worked with someone you couldn’t stand, consider yourself lucky. It may be a colleague whose sole purpose in life is to make your life difficult. It could be a boss that loves to micromanage. It could be a personality, a work ethic, or a little bit of everything. Whatever it is exactly, it can result in dreading work—not because of your job, or the work…

    13 Jul 2015 | 3:34 pm
    Few people, if any, like to be micromanaged. It’s counterproductive. It’s rage inducing. It’s annoying. But in the workplace, the micromanager seems unavoidable. At some point in your career, you will encounter the micromanager- whether in a traditional or virtual office environment. Here are a few tips on how to deal with and work with a micromanager. Share & Communicate Often, those that micromanage desire control. It’s not so much that they want to micromanage, it’s just a bad habit that they can’t quite break.

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:41 pm
    A career rut can happen to the best of us. It doesn’t matter if you love your job or not, eventually the honeymoon is over and the thrill is gone. It’s not that you no longer care about your job, you have just lost that spark, that passion, that drive. It’s been replaced by complacency and you find that you’re just going through the motions. Should you quit? While only you can answer that, a career rut is much like a mid-life crisis in career form. It’s not your job; it’s you. So before you decide to throw in the towel and look for greener pastures, try these tips…

The other shopper glances at an index card, looks up at the signs labeling each aisle, then heads down a center aisle. Who will be first to the checkout?

    Executives are among the top earners and are highly respected, both inside and outside of the company. The prestige comes with many company benefits, such as a company car or a pension.

The deadlines hanging over his head raced through his brain as he devised a plan of action to give him from respite from his concerns. “I’ll just go for a walk to relax” he thought as he stepped out into the night air. During the course of the walk he debated with himself as to how to solve his particular work issues. By the time he had returned, he felt calmer – he had a plan for the next day.

  • Handling a toxic work environment with purpose

    I was having a drink with some ex-colleagues a few weeks back, and one of them commented how this comment that I made in my Mad Max post was a bit obvious: When you work in an organisation with a toxic culture, you have 3 choices. You can a) Try to fit in with the culture and keep your head down, b) Try to make positive change to the dysfunctional culture; or c) Get the hell out of there and never look back. It is fairly obvious isn’t it? But there are interesting (in my head) things to note about the types of people who succeed in toxic workplaces and those who are crushed by despair.

    I was watching an episode of the Sopranos TV series recently, called ‘The fleshy part of the thigh’. In it, there was a scene where Paulie (one of Tony’s silver-haired goons) confronted someone about their inability to play by their rules. Over the top of the scene there was an old song playing called ‘The Three Bells’ from the 1950s, which by today’s standards is quite old-fashioned. When it was played alongside the confronting Mafia scene, the song took on a menacing quality which changed my entire perception of the song. It is now one of my favourites!

    Where did the idea of being beside yourself come from? You know like, she was so excited she was beside herself? Because if you think about it, that’s just a funny visual. I imagine your normal, semi-bored self just standing there, while your insanely excited twin is next to you and convulsing with joy. I think about one twin filing her nails and the other twitching like she’s got electrodes attached to her, and the point is this: You have a choice about whether to choose awesome or dull. You can choose happiness and excitement and saying yes. Because when you make excitement a…

But it’s there because you know you’re not being honest with yourself. You want to do one thing, but you’re doing another. And it hurts.
