Job Stuff 60

This is more or less a newsletter for job seekers like myself.  I try to find good job search strategies, bad job search strategies, pure BS and job related articles every week.  So far I’ve never run short.  Please pass this around. I’m not doing this for any reason other than the desire to help and communicate with other job seekers.  If you have any good links or stories, especially stories please comment.  If you want the story private, just put that in the comment and I will trash it and  not let it post.

Where have all the men gone.

When you treat them as expendable in society that is a great disincentive.

We will know that a real talent shortage exists when employers start looking outside the box and break the bad habits that have metastasized over the last eight years.

Is the recruiting process broken?

If you ask the question there’s a good chance you know the answer.


Liz again. Some recruiting processes that need to die.

Five Recruiting Practices That Need To Die

  1. Deciding which candidates to interview by keyword-searching their resumes or applications. Good employers know that reviewing resumes is a human function!
  2. Structuring job interviews as formal, uni-directional Q & A exercises. Good job interviews are two-way conversations between equals.
  3. Making job-seekers wait in silence for weeks between interactions. Smart managers stay in touch with job-seekers and make the recruiting process as fast and nimble as possible.
  4. Expecting job-seekers to work for free during the interview process, by creating a marketing plan or an IT strategy without compensation, for instance.
  5. Treating job-seekers like cattle by implying through their words and actions that the employer is mighty and the job-seeker is nothing. Run away from any employer who treats you badly on the job search trail!
