Liar Liar Pants on Fire

We invested a lot of time, effort and energy, supporting a candidate through an interview process a few months back.  It’s standard operating procedure for us.  We want the candidates we work with to know we are invested in…

Focus on What Hasn't Changed

Sometimes, when you’ve been in your role for a while, it doesn’t seem like anything changes.  Work may become mundane or, perhaps, less challenging, especially when you have seen few prospective opportunities.  And, then…



Everything changes.  



A leader resigns.  A co-worker is…

Picture This

A buddy of mine has been dating. He’s newly returned to the dating scene since his divorce and he’s trying to figure out how to feel less awkward.  He, like many people, turned to online options.  It’s been a running joke for us for…

A Business Plan for Your Career

Quite regularly, I’m contacted by candidates who don't realize they are candidates.  Most often, people consider themselves candidates only when they’re participating in an interview process.  They view candidacy as the point in…

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…

Recruiters, Anecdotally



Over time, I’ve come to learn there are people with questionable motives in every profession.  You know…opportunists; people who are only concerned with themselves and how they can benefit.

 

Now, there’s nothing wrong with looking out for yourself and your family.  But, I’m referring to so-called…

DAWG Talk: Industry Wisdom: Responses

Recently, I had a simple request and you did not disappoint.  I asked you to share your industry wisdom.  Whether you led a giant organization or washed dishes in a single location.  Whether you managed a team or took direction.  Or, whether you ever discovered something as a guest, I asked you to…

DAWG Talk: Industry Wisdom: I've Learned...

I find motivators fascinating. The specific thing (or things) that motivate an individual to do something is really intriguing. For each of us, it’s something different. Stage of career, or stage of life, also… Continue

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: Communicate Like They Do

Today, we all work very hard to be flexible. Technology certainly helps us to work when we’re on the move, and social media allows us to stay connected to everything going on, whenever we’re inclined to check. The ability to connect on our terms has made us more self-focused, if not self-absorbed.



Self focus may actually be a hindrance as candidates explore new career opportunities. Consider the following:



I recently sent an email to a prospective candidate. My… Continue

DAWG Talk: Speak Softly, Make the Message Count

I recently conducted an interview with a soft talker. He was a fantastic candidate. He possessed the skills and experience necessary for the position I was interviewing him for. He had a great employment track record, a professional demeanor and a positive attitude. We presented the candidate to our client and facilitated a telephone interview.



Prior to the interview, I spoke with the candidate and offered some suggestions to guide him through his interview preparations. He… Continue

DAWG Talk: Prideful Negotiation

It’s back to school time in our household. This is the time of year when we focus on a fresh start - new learning, new friends, new teachers, and, of course, new clothes. I could never imagine how fast kids grow. The marks on the wall behind their doors show my kids have grown 2 full inches taller, each, in the last 4 months. While they are 2 years apart in age, they are within 5 pounds of one another.



So, last week, we prepared ourselves for what was in store. First, we… Continue

DAWG Talk: The Ebb and Flow of Recruiting

Over the years, recruiters have done some pretty wild and crazy (and smart) things to identify talent. Market conditions have factored into the recruitment channel used, as well as the number of resources dedicated to each channel.



When talent is scarce, recruiters identify candidates through a variety of recruitment channels and campaigns. Open houses, traditional and social media, billboards, airplane banners, community and diversity networks, and referral programs are… Continue

DAWG Talk: Ill-Treat A Candidate And Lose A Guest

Over the last few years, there is no doubt that the employment market has been turbulent. Unemployment, across industry lines, has risen and hardworking people have found themselves in unfortunate circumstances.



Because the sheer number of available workers is higher, as well as the fact that many companies ceased to hire for a period of time, interview processes have been extended to allow more involvement from company representatives in the process. I suppose this is to… Continue

DAWG Talk: Challenge Tradition



When I was a kid, I really looked forward to visiting my grandmother and grandfather. They lived 30 minutes away, but for me, it was like traveling to the other side of the world.



Grandma and Grandpa were a lot of fun. They were practical jokers. They once pulled into our driveway honking their car horn. When we ran outside, we were surprised to see their entire car filled with balloons. They’d tell off color jokes, now and again, and even took painstaking effort to… Continue

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: Is the Value of a Resume Gone?

For years, I’ve reviewed resumes. There are three basic types of resumes. They include Chronological, Functional and a Combination format.



Chronological resumes list work history, with the most recent position listed first, followed by previous work experience. Functional resumes focus on skills and experience, rather than on chronological work history. This is most often a format used by career changers or people who have extensive contract or temporary employment… Continue

DAWG Talk: Before You Seek a New Job, Play a Game of Chess

The older I get, the more I appreciate the game of chess. To be successful, you have to review and assess your current status, and determine the best decision based upon the information you have, and by trying to predict what your opponent will do. It’s certainly a calculated game requiring strong strategy and execution to succeed.



It’s not a game that everyone understands immediately. Surely, you can learn the game rather quickly; you can learn each piece, and how it… Continue

DAWG Talk: Career Utopia



For many years, I’ve asked a very simple question while conducting every interview. The question: What is your career utopia?”



Sure I’ve had to define the term for a candidate here and there. But, more importantly, I’ve tried to encourage candidates to think about their…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
