DAWG Talk: Reinvention

 

My kids saw snow for the first time a few weeks ago.  We were visiting Colorado over Spring Break.  We live in Florida, so we can tell you all about humidity, heat, sunshine and afternoon thunderstorms, but snow is foreign.  Like any parent, I want my kids to have as many experiences as I can afford to provide them.  Varied experience builds character and teaches lessons.  So, I scraped together the dough for a Private Ski Instructor to spend time teaching my kids the right way to…

DAWG Talk: Living the Dream





The New Year is upon us. It’s a clean slate; a time to refocus on the important things that came to light through our year-end reflection.



In a couple of months, when the crowds disappear from the gym, and you’ve likely rationalized the failure of several resolutions, what will you be…

Personal Points of Differentiation

Differentiation is the answer to the common business strategy question - How can we as a company, stand out in a crowded marketplace? There is a classic list that companies draw from – bigger, better, faster, decor’, innovation, location, value, etc. Interestingly enough, this question can also be applied to individuals, not just businesses. Heading into a New Year always offers an opportunity for pause and reflection. Perhaps, the following will…

DAWG Talk: A Dog Tale

Dogs amaze me. Dogs love unconditionally. Despite the stresses of the day you’ve had, a dog will welcome you as if it were a first meeting. Dogs just want to be with you…in your presence. Dogs are loyal. They just want to please. Over time, dog lovers develop an incredible bond with their canine companions. The bond is based upon trust, dependability, consistency and appreciation.



I’ve always been fascinated, not only by the sense of devotion, but also the biological… Continue

DAWG Talk: Stupidity Can Equal Success



In the recruiting business, we see a lot of dumb decisions. Sometimes, candidates accept an offer out of desperation. Sometimes, companies extend offers to less than ideal candidates in an effort to stave off some crisis.



For a long time though, it’s been my contention that people aren’t really stupid. It’s just that they’re self-absorbed; focused on the priority at hand. Biologically, human beings have a survival instinct. Today, our… Continue

DAWG Talk: Thanks Bernie!

YELLOW DOG's Managing Partner, Scott Rosenburg, shares some thoughts...



I recently returned from a Florida vacation with my family. We took my 6 year old daughter to Walt Disney World and she had a blast. I have been to Disney more times than I can count, as I grew up in Florida.



On this visit, however, I noticed something I haven’t seen at Disney before. I noticed the cast members (Disney terminology for any employee) were not the same, “younger generation” that I… Continue

DAWG Talk: Got Some Gamble in You?

With the market today having talented candidates willing and able to take a “step back” in title and compensation, is the company or the candidate taking the risk or “gambling”



The fact is the same talent level candidates that companies were having a “bidding war” or offering signing bonus a few years ago are now considering opportunities with less money, title, and responsibility than they are accustomed to.



Some companies would say, “What will happen when the economy… Continue

DAWG Talk: You Talkin' to Me?



I live by the philosophy that you can say anything to anyone as long as you are honest and your intent is positive. There’s no question that tact and timeliness affect our ability to be successful communicators. And, as our society and workforce become more inclusive, we find ourselves exploring new channels to deliver a consistent message.



People receive information differently. For a message to be communicated successfully, the… Continue

DAWG Talk: Who's Interviewing Who?

In my line of business, it’s not uncommon to hear horror stories. Stories about candidates who have, let’s just say, approached the interview process the wrong way.



Often, candidates seeking new opportunities are in a whole new world. They’re out of the element and unsure of the best means for finding new options. That discomfort sometimes leads to frustration and sometimes frustration leads to poor interview performance.



What is, perhaps, less talked about is the poor… Continue

DAWG Talk: Thanks for the Horrible Service

One of the great things I get to do for a living is meet people. Since we specialize in the restaurant, on-site foodservice and hospitality industries, one of the great perks I get is the ability, nay job requirement, to dine out.



The truth is that we find many of the great people we place [into new job opportunities] through our direct recruiting efforts. There’s no better way to see a potential candidate’s skills, then to see him or her in a restaurant, in action, leading the team… Continue

DAWG Talk: I Want It Now!

Do you remember the stories your parents and grandparents used to tell you about walking miles in the cold and snow? I think the lesson was to teach patience. If you work hard and remain on the right path, you’ll get to where you’re going. Patience was a virtue.



Then, we moved into the fast lane…highways and byways, computers and cell phones, internet and social media.



Change occurs right in front of us, and the speed of change continues to increase. Technology and… Continue

DAWG Talk: Do You OODA?



Every day, we are confronted with situations that require us to make decisions. Some decisions are easy. Some are not. Yet, each day we face the world not knowing what we’ll have to decide.



It’s a challenge that I suspect doesn’t get much thought. We tend to develop “I’ll take it as it comes” attitudes. Some folks hide under the guise of an “I can handle anything” mentality. Others are a bit more prepared, and work to develop… Continue

DAWG Talk: They Said What?!!!!!

You go through the interviewing and hiring process with an employer you’re excited about. You jump through every hoop. You meet with people from the department you’ll be working in. You even meet people you may not ever see ever again, and you impressed everyone. You know you kicked butt and took names. You are feeling confident.



There it is…the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. You can sense it. You are going back to work with a renewed energy. You’re motivated and very… Continue

DAWG Talk: Get Off Your High-Horse

Who do you think you are? Where do you get off treating me this way? Would you treat your mother like this?



If you’ve been a candidate in the market for a new career opportunity some time over the last couple of years, you’ve likely felt (or feel) this way.



You’ve applied to countless jobs without any luck. They must be real jobs because they were posted on Monster and CareerBuilder. [Cue sarcastic teenage mantra.] “Not.”



All too often, I speak with candidates… Continue

DAWG Talk: Making Matches Happen

I walked into my daughter’s bedroom last week. On the floor, she had 4 piles of Thistle Blocks. The type of blocks, quite honestly, is irrelevant. But, for those who are interested, they are plastic colored soft blocks with bristles that interlock to form a connection.



Anyhow, on the floor were 4 piles of these Thistle blocks – red, yellow, blue and black. Being the cool dad that I am, I quickly sat down on the floor, grabbed several blocks and put them together. I figured this would… Continue

DAWG Talk: Who's Afraid of Success?

Don’t you want to be successful?



Since an early age, the idea of success was drilled into me. I had no clue what that meant, mind you, but I knew that with hard work, determination and perseverance, I could get there. Talk about an abstract idea.



Based upon many of the conversations I’ve had of late, it seems as though there are fears of success everywhere.



Maybe it’s because we have all had a lot of time for reflection over the last several months. Or, maybe we… Continue

DAWG Talk: It’s Just Too Easy

For me, the recent Labor Day Weekend brought upon some reflection. Holidays do give us time to look back and revisit our distant, and recent, past in a way that’s simply cathartic. The distance gives perspective, and perspective helps us understand others’ points of view.



So, while I was kicking back enjoying some down time, it wasn’t a hard decision to call our local pizza joint and have a pizza delivered. While waiting for my extra cheesy, thin crust, I got to thinking. Things are… Continue

DAWG Talk: Connecting People with Opportunity





Investing in You



Challenging times force people to act in interesting ways. Some folks cower in the face of adversity and others manage to rise to the occasion.



If you are presently employed, you are no doubt frustrated by the increase in responsibilities you’ve taken on, while at the same time feeling a sense of remorse for the colleagues you’ve seen downsized.



If you are one of the downsized,… Continue
