Having spent the last years of my career in the staffing and recruitment, ask me all the time by friends and relatives if I can help you find a job more desirable. I've helped my fiance get a job, helped my college buddies get a job after graduation, and even helped some high school classmates find jobs having not seen for years. It is a joy in recruiting when you can help someone find a job that a positive impact on their lives. But the fact of the matter is, not everyone has the opportunity to work with a consultant selection. I would say that only a small percentage of career changes are made in the hand of a scout. So what the rest of us do when we are in a stalemate and no one to carry out the search for you? I've heard a lot of tips, tricks and tactics to help the process and I'm sure you've heard some yourself. Do any of these sound familiar? Sending resumes in extra thick paper, memorizing the answers to the questions most frequently dazzling interview, wearing a brightly colored suit to your interview to be memorable, and the list goes on. I honestly do not know if any of these things help or hinder the recruitment process, but I know that I have never met a professional scout the coaches of their candidates to take them shopping at Old Navy and choose the colors brighter seasons Takeaway for an interview next. .
