For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: The preferred process is by email so the candidate and I have a record of the conversation Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Having the dedication to their profession to be a subject matter expert or "go-to" person as well as the ability and passion to want to pass along their knowledge and experience. At the University of Phoenix we are looking for individuals who want that challenge of preparing and mentoring current and future generations. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: In relation to Faculty Recruiting in which I am responsible for, candidates must have at least a Masters degree or higher in their field, at least a couple years minimum of work experience in their respective field and in specific areas (such as nursing and others) a current and unrestricted license. Lastly a candidate must have "the passion" to engage and motivate participants in the learning process. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Again in relation to Faculty Recruiting, if a candidate does not have at least a Master's degree in their related field and/or does not have a current license (if needed) will disqualify candidates. Also since a majority of our students are Adult Learners, individuals who work full time, but want to better their lives through higher education. They must be able to teach in their free time. Most of our classes are taught one night a week, so candidates must be local to the campus (if it is a local based campus location) and have the time necessary. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
