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…

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…

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: What Do You Really Think?

Years ago, I had a very interesting exchange with my father. I asked, “Dad, how are you today?”



He responded, “My head hurts, my back is sore, my feet are killing me and I haven’t slept for days.”



I said, “Dad, I was just being courteous…just say you’re fine.”



His response, “Why the hell did you ask?”



It was then that I learned it was important to communicate honestly…to really listen to what was being said and to make time for the conversation. It… Continue

DAWG Talk: 5 Things Every Candidate Should Know

It’s an employer-driven marketplace. Despite how determined and confident you are, as a candidate, you have little control over the hiring process. That’s why I decided to help you get a leg up on the competition.



Following, please find 5 things that every candidate should know before embarking on a career search:



Grammar matters. We’ve grown accustomed to short hand. We use abbreviations, acronyms, numbers and characters in our daily life texting, tweeting, or… Continue

DAWG Talk: Career Track to Happiness

Life, for many people, is about the pursuit of happiness. In fact, the Declaration of Independence is very clear. It states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”



We spend our lives seeking out what brings us joy. Just thinking about certain experiences can bring a sense of comfort and well-being. You know the… Continue

DAWG Talk: Tattoo Too Much?

Body art, such as tattoos (and piercings), can be seen in every walk of life. They are pervasive in our culture. They are a means of self expression…differentiation. According to a 2006 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, it was determined that 36 percent of individuals age 18-25 had at least one tattoo. Among individuals age 26-40, around 40 percent of them had at least one tattoo. I wonder how different tattoos really are than hair or fingernail color, or even plastic… Continue

Stop the Static and Get an Edge



We spend a lot of time talking about what makes a candidate great. Past performance, skills, experience, personality, charisma…they’re all factors.



While the interview process is inherently subjective, we’ve learned to look past the superficial and focus on key traits that make an individual successful. Often, success depends upon the situation as much as the individual. If the individual is able to identify situational indicators, he… Continue

DAWG Talk: A New Year...



A new year is upon us. It’s an exciting time. It’s a time of closure and new beginnings. It’s a time for introspection and reflection. It’s a time to look ahead.



A lot of things happen over the course of a year. While we’re in the throes of all that activity, it’s hard to pull back and fairly assess what’s going on. Over time, we gain valuable perspective.



We are in a fortuitous position when we have the ability to look… Continue

DAWG Talk: Move Over, Passion’s Driving

From the very beginning of my recruitment career, I chose not to think of myself as a headhunter. Instead, I view myself as a relationship builder. Regardless of industry or specialty, I enjoy the chase. I like seeking out talented people and getting to know them. Once I understand motivators and requirements, I can identify opportunities specific to the individual. Clearly, I’m candidate-centric. I want candidates to not only be qualified for the positions they’re interviewing for, but to also… 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: No Originality

I’m an attentive guy, if I say so. I try to listen intently, and observe the details of any situation I’m in; whether it’s making a new introduction, conducting and interview or just following the progression of a ball game. I consciously key in on little things.

For me, the little things make the difference. That’s how I discern one product, service, or in the case of a ball game, play, from another. Quite honestly, it’s getting harder and… Continue

DAWG Talk: Lessons from the Dog - One Candidate's Perspective

(Guest post by Kimberly)



I’m a Greek Mathematician. Actually, I’m not, but today I did have a “eureka” moment.



Having been in the real-world (whatever that means) work force for 15 years, I’m confident in my skills and abilities and that I’m the best at what I do. I’ve consistently been gainfully employed during these 15 years and have worked for a total of three companies in this time span, earning awards and exceeding expectations at each of them. What was my experience… Continue

Restaurant Marketing Survey: Restaurants Turn Thumbs Down On Yellow Pages

A whopping 60% of restaurants said they have decreased their Yellow Page directory spending over the past two years, downgrading their listing from a display ad to a bold listing, or from a bold listing to free listing.



This was one of the many facts that surfaced in RestaurantMarketing.com’s “Restaurant Yellow Page Usage Report” – a survey of 214 different restaurants across the USA in various food and concept categories, from casual, to pizza to fine dining, taken in September… Continue

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.
