Top 3 Things To Do On LinkedIn Before An Interview

To take your preparation one step further, I wanted to add three things that you could do specifically on LinkedIn before an interview to gain an additional edge.  Continue reading “Top 3 Things To Do On LinkedIn Before An Interview”

Back to School, Back to Business – Start your “School Year” out the right way 👊

Back to School, Back to Business  – Start your “School Year” out the right way 👊

I am a summer girl through and through.  I love everything about summer and when we have the final drive home from our summer cottage on Labor Day Weekend it always brings tears to my eyes.  So dramatic, but so true. 

To change my focus from what is behind me, I try to focus on what is ahead.  

Even though I haven’t been to “school” in years there is a certain exciting feeling you get in September around the new “school year”.  It’s the beginning of a new chapter, a new season, and a new opportunity to start on the right foot.  

This time of the year always makes me reminisce and think about the things that my parents would make me and my siblings do once we started the new school year.

This tool has totally changed my life…

This tool has totally changed my life…

I want to start by saying this is NOT an ad. I repeat. NOT an ad. 

You’re probably thinking – no sh**t Sherlock people wouldn’t pay you to do ads… not yet at least ;). But in case you thought I was some super hip influencer who got offered free stuff to market, I certainly am NOT and do NOT. 

I DO just like to talk about the things I learn about and do every day that helps me in hopes that after reading about it maybe it will help you too!

That is why today I wanted to dedicate this entire post to my Start Today Journal I got from the Hollis Co.  Continue reading “This tool has totally changed my life…”

What makes YOU an attractive candidate

What makes YOU an attractive candidate

In this blog, I try to make it a combination of work and play.  For most of us, that’s what our lives primarily consist of working our real-time jobs and then whatever we do outside of work, which isn’t always “play” or fun, but you get the idea!

Since I am a recruiter and interview people all day every day, I give career advice and interview advice from what I have experienced in hopes that it will help you when the time comes.  Continue reading “What makes YOU an attractive candidate”

Level Up your Squad

Level Up your Squad

I was inspired to write this blog after seeing the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ movie.  I am not a crazy, obsessive Marvel diehard, but I am definitely a fan. I think they are funny and cool and if there is a popular Marvel film out I am likely going to watch it.  My all-time favorites are ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ 1 and 2. To me, they’re hilarious, light-hearted and have great endings, which is very important to me (otherwise I get pissed). Continue reading “Level Up your Squad”

Reasons why you SHOULD take a recruiting call …

Reasons why you SHOULD take a recruiting call …

Last week I was going through a status update on one of the jobs I am working on with a hiring manager.  We were going over some candidates and he saw my note that one hung up on me. Once he saw that he asked, “Do people really hang up on you?”.  My answer, “Unfortunately, yes, and depending on the job, it happens often.” He was in shock and couldn’t believe that people would hang up on a recruiter.
