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…

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: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
