For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Phone Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: A phone call is cool. Always good to chat with folks interested in progressing their career. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A hard skill set that reflects expertise in an industry. It's important to be ambitious when seeking an upgrade in a career but it sure is easier to help people who have the credentials to take the next step. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: The recruitment process is transforming to a more digital one day by day. Most candidates already have enough information available online to dictate their competency and build a profile. If they don't have that....I guess we could do an old school resume? Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Not following through on commitments to Sugar Systems or to the client company. We have a reputation to protect and the people we refer are a direct extension of us as a company. We like people who make us look good! Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "A rise in tides raises all ships." What do you like to do in your free time? I'm a big reader. Success leaves clues (often times in books written by great men) and I'm trying to soak them up Sherlock Holmes style. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I am passionate about people and it's satisfying to be able to help a candidate upgrade their career while also helping a company fill a challenging position. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? "Team building exercises" where we go drive go carts, smash some baseballs at a batting cage, go white water rafting, etc. Stuff like that is engaging AND a tax write off! ;-) In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Driven. These guys and girls get the job done day in and day out.

In this week's edition of Well,This Happened, the series that lets you become a career coach, we addressed James' tough situation.

James was caught off guard during a department heads meeting when he was asked to present. He wasn't prepared but did so anyway and bombed the presentation because of this. James is now wondering what he should do to address this situation.
