    What will determine the fastest growing, highest paying jobs of this decade? Will it be the expansion of new technologies like 3-D printing? Will it be a need for greater information security in the wake of the NSA scandal? Will we all get jet packs and then need custom decal specialists to help us tell them all apart?  For the answers to these questions, here’s “6 High Paying Jobs of the Future” from Forbes.

    For the most part, these jobs are based on specialized skill sets that are theorized to be in increasingly high demand over the next decade. For instance, so called “Ethical Hackers” will be in ever greater demand as companies bring on these security evasion specialists to poke holes in their current system with an eye towards blocking out not-so-ethical hackers.  Read More…

    When you’re looking to recruit directly from universities, limiting yourself to the students that show up at the career center or job fair can leave you missing a lot of great potential candidates. Just like in the rest of the labor market, there are active college candidates (the ones that show up with freshly minted business cards on career day) and  there are passive candidates. Though they might not actively be seeking work, these students are far from unrecruitable. Read More…

  • Why Doesn’t Anyone Respond to My Job Postings?

    The title that you choose to put on your job posting is of great strategic importance for getting the responses that you want from job seekers in a timely fashion. A good job description is succinct, accurate and encapsulates the entirety of the job that you are advertising.

    When job seekers browse boards like Monster and CareerBuilder, they aren’t entering phrases like “motivated”, “career oriented” or “expectations”. If a Web Designer is looking for a job, chances are that “Web Designer” is what they will be entering into their job board search engine. If your job description contains too many irrelevant qualifiers (gifted, go-getter, wizard, etc.) then your ad will be buried under pages and pages of more pertinent results. Read More…

    The effectiveness with which technology has the ability to connect people has revolutionized recruiting over the last decade. Where, in times past, you might actually have to know a candidate or seek them through a registry, all you need now is an internet connection and some patience. Well, that’s not all you need; but the point is that it’s possible to find a highly qualified, personable and passionate candidate for a client without ever actually meeting them. Why then, could we not extend this principal to the hiring process itself?  Read More…

    When you’re trying to lock down a deal with an exceptionally gifted candidate, it is important to understand the offer from their perspective. Are they getting everything that they want out of this deal? How easy would it be for a competitor to lure them away with a counter offer now, or even a year down the line? When looking to secure talent in a definite and lasting way, one of the most effective strategies that you can employ is personalizing the deal. Read More…

    Though there are many advantages to being a publicly traded company, one of the biggest downsides is the necessity of making cuts to staff and resources in order to balance out poor market performance. In many cases, downsizing employees and employee resources becomes a sort of vicious circle for work performance on the macro and micro levels. Those who avoid the cuts are often left with twice as much on their plate and very little in the way of support for their new responsibilities.  Read More…

    I know we say this a lot on this blog, but referrals really are one of your best candidate sources. Someone who gets hired after a referral from a friend or former colleague already has a bond with your company and staff, increasing the likeliness of retaining that person. Additionally, a 2012 CareerXroads survey found that for over 1/2 of businesses, 1 in 5 interviews with a referred candidate resulted in a hire. Clearly, there are advantages to pulling in the best and brightest from your employees’ professional circles. Read More…

    Intelligent problem solving is one of the most important skill sets for an effective leader to possess. A leader that has an inability to see the big picture when presented by problems or just avoids them all together will never be as effective as someone who approaches these business challenges as an opportunity to learn and improve. There are always going to be problems associated with running a business or managing a number of employees, most of which have no obvious solution. A great leader needs to always be looking for the positives in the midst of difficult situations, for the solution that deals with both the immediate hassle and the root of the issue as well.  Read More…
