  • Anyone Can Be a Recruiter, Right?
    by Kris Dunn - September 12, 2017
    It's a profession with limited barriers to entry and literally a million agency/corporate positions available. It's a profession where the hardest workers and the most entrepreneurial usually get the best results. It's a profession looked at with disdain by many candidates who are sick of hearing from members of said profession. SO - Anyone can be a recruiter, right? I bring this up for the following re...
  • Sell Me This Pen!
    by Debra Wheatman - September 8, 2017
    Gimmicks—video resumes, sending cookies to your interviewer, etc.—will not get you hired. But what about those situations in which the candidate is subjected to gimmicks, and is asked to perform parlor tricks for the interviewer? Yet another symptom of the lack of interview training on the part of managers, these types of questions are highly effective—at screening out top talent. My client Jeff has 20 yea...
  • If You Try To Server Everyone In Your Business, You'll Serve No One Well
    by Kathy Caprino - September 5, 2017
    In my work as a trainer for new coaches, we focus on helping them refine their niche, and play bigger and stronger within that niche.

Why did it take forever? Because I was deeply afraid that the more narrow and...

However, that does not mean a job seeker should ignore job boards in conducting their job search. There is a right way – actually I’ve listed six right ways, and one wrong way to use job boards,...
  • Where Truck Drivers Will Lose Their Jobs In the Next 25 Years
    by Kris Dunn - August 2, 2017
    There are 1.8 million truck drivers in the U.S., making it one of the largest occupations in the country. There are tens of thousands of truck drivers in most major metropolitan areas. Also, not really represented in the chart above - most rural areas that lost light manufacturing or textile mills at the end of the last century transitioned a bunch of male workers from manufacturing to driving trucks, because it was the o...
  • Pursue Your Goals With Passion
    by Steve Farber - July 19, 2017
    The summit of Denali (formerly known as Mount McKinley) is 20,310 feet above sea level, and Werner Berger was 200 feet from the peak. Just another 20 minutes of climbing and he would cross the tallest mountain in North America off his list. The weather, however, had turned nasty. And rather than risk getting caught in a whiteout, Berger’s group turned back. “Everybody was so disappointed for me and wondered how...

    by Kathy Caprino - June 20, 2017
    Many pundits, scholars, academics and lawmakers believe that the current education system is fraught with challenges that have to be addressed and resolved for our country and future generations to thrive. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, for one, recently unveiled a new tuition-free pilot program in New York State that attempts to forge a new way.
