For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: I prefer via email. Why? So I can check out the application if I haven't yet and be able to respond back quickly Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Candidates who understand that putting your best foot forward is critical during a job hunt. I'm always impressed by candidates who have done their research on our company and the position and ask intelligent, thoughtful questions during our conversation. Also impressed by candidates who ensure their outward facing profiles (LinkedIn, Twitter, resume) are free of errors and represent their true qualifications well. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: The candidate's resume or LinkedIn profile used to apply for the position should clearly show a match between job requirements and their background and experience. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Sending a cover letter to Rockfish with the wrong company name and open position in it. That represents a lack of attention to detail and that's a basic requirement for every role. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Last week during my Office Hours on Youtube, a client asked about how to deal with a workplace bully. After spending many years in corporate HR, I flipped to the other side and became a career therapist. So, I've seen both sides of this situation in the workplace. In this video, I discuss why people struggle to deal with bullies and what you can do to change the situation instantly.
