What Does Your Total Package Include?

Picture this, you’re in a job search and you land an interview for a seemingly perfect position. You go to the interview with a salary in mind that would be EPIC if offered, and to your surprise, they offer $5k over that! Without hesitation you accept their offer, you put in your two weeks’ notice at your current role and before you know it, you’re on your way to sign employment paperwork and get whatever other ducks in a row that you need to before your first day. Except now you’re signing all your tax and insurance paperwork, etc. and [...]

Have You Checked Your Interview Process Lately?

We’ve talked about the onboarding process and how important it is to be diligent in every step, but what about the interview? Think of your last 10 hires. How many of them are still currently employed with you? How many resigned? How many did you terminate and after how long? Turnover rates are historically high as 4.5 million people quit their jobs in March 2022, up from 4.35 million people who quit in February 2022. A portion of this statistic could certainly be attributed to an ineffective interview process. In this blog, we will dive into some reasons why you [...]

Are You Chronically Late?

2022-07-12T08:59:20-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, General News, Job Efficiency, Networking|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Being “fashionably late” is an excuse that people who are always late give to make themselves feel better, and it isn’t acceptable to your employer. Unfortunately snoozing your alarm 3 or 4 times and rushing out the door is an easy habit to adopt and a very hard one to break. We, humans, are creatures of habit, and we tend to lean toward the solution that gives us the most satisfaction at the moment even if it means difficulty later. It’s easy to think that extra 5-10 minutes will actually make a difference in the ease of getting out of [...]

Are You Prepared?

2022-05-13T10:26:47-04:00Categories: Behind the Scenes, General Job Search Advice, How To, Motivation|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

The word “prepared” is defined as – making ready beforehand for some purpose, use, or activity. Being prepared is necessary for almost all tasks related to your job (and life). The act of being prepared is something that should be continuously practiced and put forth in every given situation. I’m not just talking about coming prepared with a pen or pencil. Being prepared goes as far as when you task someone with something and preparing them the best you can to get the task done. If you’re thinking back to that email you sent to Jim this morning with unclear [...]

Red Flags in an Interview

2022-05-09T14:15:55-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, General Job Search Advice|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

We’ve previously discussed red flags you may be unknowingly giving off prior to landing an interview, but what about red flags in the interview? To be clear, red flags in an interview do not just come from the candidate. There are things you, the employer, may be doing that can be a turn-off to the candidate. In this blog, we will discuss red flags in an interview coming from both sides. […]

Are You a Serial Job Hopper?

2022-04-29T10:34:33-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, Resources for Job Seekers|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Statistically speaking, workers who are highly educated are less likely to stay at a job for a longer period of time. More specifically high school-educated workers stay with their employers over 30% longer than those with Bachelor’s Degrees. ‘Job Hopping’ is defined as an individual who has held multiple job titles at multiple different companies in a short period of time. So, I ask, are you a job hopper? […]

Are You Trainable?

2022-04-29T10:04:32-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, How To, Motivation|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

One of the best features you can have as a new hire or potential hire is to be trainable. As simple as it sounds, it’s not a concept that is always easily grasped. Being trainable extends from the ability to learn new information being taught to you as well as understanding culture and the people who define it. Your receptiveness to new information can greatly make or break your success in a new role and It is something you will want to be attentive to. It is an entirely teachable trait, no pun intended, and it is worth working on [...]

Are You On LinkedIn?

2022-04-27T13:44:24-04:00Categories: General Job Search Advice, Resources for Job Seekers|Tags: , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

If you’re not on LinkedIn, you should respectfully pause reading until you go (now) and sign up. What is LinkedIn you ask? Think of it as your billboard, except it’s entirely of no cost to you. A professional social platform where you can showcase your educational and career highlights while interacting with other professionals in your industry and beyond. It’s safe to say we STRONGLY encourage you not only to have a LinkedIn but also to remain active on the account. […]
