When it comes to preparing for an interview, there are many different things that you can do to get ready. I wrote another blog called “Interview Like a Pro”, which outlined four simple things you can do to prep for 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”
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”
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.

Health and Wellness is extremely important to me. It has been and always will be a top priority for me in my life.
At home I have (almost) perfected my healthy habits and created a healthy environment to live in. I clean my house weekly, workout daily, have a Britta pitcher always filled with water, buy lots of fruits and vegetables, keep my pre-packaged food to a minimum and do not buy things I don’t want myself to eat, not even for a “treat”.
Your environment and habits play a huge part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Believe it or not, it’s easy to make those changes at home. The question here today is how do we keep that up at work? The place that many of us spend more time than our actual homes. A place that you don’t own or have total control over. Continue reading “My Top 3 Healthy Work Habits”
Since I have been recruiting for some time now there are a couple tips and tricks that I have picked up along the way. Tips for candidates on how to tighten up their interview process to help land their dream job, and suggestions for hiring managers on how to improve their interviewing process for today’s market. Since I am talking to people all day everyday, I have heard a lot from both sides and wanted to share some of this insight with you to help you either land the job or hire great people.
Today’s focus is a topic I have been hearing about a lot lately from hiring managers, and have had to remind candidates of… Continue reading “A little Thank You goes a long way”
This past December I noticed that all of my favorite podcasters were doing a year end review on their shows. A year end review is when you would take a moment to reflect on what went well and what didn’t over the past year. The pod casters would go over what they accomplished and where they failed so they could learn from it.
At first I really wasn’t into the episode because I didn’t feel like it was something I could benefit or learn from. But, by the end of that first episode I realized just how wrong I was. The whole concept of what they were doing was such a GREAT tool for improvement. Taking a minute to stop and reflect on the past year to get a better “birds eye view” of what ACTUALLY happened, rather than evaluating it while your in the middle of it.

Recently, I finished listening to Brendon Burchard’s book High Performing Habits. It’s actually my second time listening to it because it is THAT good. I tend to listen my favorite books on tape multiple times and every time I walk away learning something new that I missed the first time around.
This time it was the saying, “Courage is contagious”. As soon as he said that phrase it really hit home, and I instantly wrote it in my phone so I wouldn’t forget. Courage is contagious. It’s a saying that has been used for a long time and after Googling it last night I saw that there are MANY books with that phrase or something similar somewhere in their title. I know I had heard it before, but for some reason when he said it that day it really resonated with me. It made me stop and think about the times in my own life where I’ve been courageous and impacted others, on top of the times I’ve watched someone be courageous and was inspired by THEIR courage.
