“Ghosting” Uncovered

2022-11-18T10:31:08-05:00Categories: Behind the Scenes|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Ghosting is defined as the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication. For all intents and purposes let’s emphasize that this originated through the abrupt termination of personal relationships. Ghosting has now infected professional relationships and is considered normal. A recent Indeed survey revealed that over 80% of employers have been ghosted by job candidates – some even after the point of hire. The question of why remains unclear. How Do Candidates Ghost? Ghosting in the workplace has maninfested itself in several ways, each more inexcusable than the last. [...]

“Do you have any questions?” Interestingly enough, it’s at that exact moment that your mind goes blank and you can’t recall any of the questions you had intended to ask upon concluding your interview. An interview is a two-way conversation, and it’s important that you gain clarity on whether this position is the right fit. Additionally, asking questions not only shows your interest in the position, but it gives the interviewer direct insight into your intentions. Below you will find 5 questions that should be at the top of your list. […]

2022-08-02T13:42:09-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, All About Recruiters, Behind the Scenes, General News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Serious question, why are we ghosting? This unfortunate habit which surfaced through the abandonment of dating your newest Tinder interest has changed course in the business world and it’s coming in with a bang. People would rather cower to their disagreements than speak the truth and the worst part is that it comes from all directions. I am not just singling out candidates who are ghosting interviews or job offers, I am also shining a light on companies who are ghosting candidates post-interview with no reason as to why they do not want to move forward. The question is why [...]

Your company is certainly not exempt from the aftershock of this pandemic. With the influx of employees resigning from their jobs (4.3 million and rising to be exact) businesses are feeling hurt. We are all frantically looking for our new norm and trying to keep our heads above water.

It is arguably harder than ever to find qualified, lasting candidates and thankfully we have some tricks up our sleeves to help weed out [...]

5 Signs It May Be Time to Call a Recruiter (Candidate Edition)

2022-05-20T10:25:48-04:00Categories: All About Recruiters, Resources for Job Seekers|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, a job search is not the highlight of anybody’s day. There’s no denying that it’s like adding a full-time job to your already full-time life, and we’ve never heard someone use “easy,” and “job search” in the same sentence. Though the pandemic may seem behind us, the aftershock is still in full effect and some people are still out of a job or have the burning desire for a new one and they’re struggling with where to begin. This is the time when you should definitely be taking advantage of the [...]

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 [...]

Why You Shouldn’t No Call No Show

2022-05-13T11:03:50-04:00Categories: Acing the Interview, Behind the Scenes, General News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Honestly one of the worst things you can do in your work life is a “No Call, No Show (NCNS).” This could apply to an interview, a phone call, or a scheduled shift, and it essentially means that you do not show up without notice or a reason given. This is not a good habit to get into so if you have found yourself committing this act, stop. It’s a slippery slope and like we’ve said before you never know where life will take you. You may think simply not showing up to the interview is no big deal and [...]

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 Cheating Your Onboarding Process?

2022-04-07T12:58:04-04:00Categories: General News, Job Efficiency|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

Let’s be straight, the onboarding process does not end when the employee signs the new hire paperwork. It includes everything before and after that point, from the interview to the training process and it should be taken just as seriously for the employer as for the employee. Studies have shown that for a 100-person company with an average salary of $60,000, the turnover replacement cost could range from $750,000 to $3 million. That is not an amount to be taken lightly. Check out our suggestions for an effective onboarding process that will make for a successful future! […]
