For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Send me one follow up email (if I haven't responded to your initial contact). Good manners are really important. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A well-turned phrase in your cover letter (even better if you can make me laugh); Attention to the detail of the position requirements (send me a matrix chart with how you meet the requirements, and I may fall in love) Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Education and demonstration of skills. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Typos - if you can't check your letter and resume for typos, you are not my kind of candidate. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Candidates can apply for multiple positions and not be penalized (but this typically doesn't apply to the way I work with clients).

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?
