For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: LinkedIn Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Please feel free to call, e-mail, or reach out via LinkedIn Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I am really big on internal motivators. Everyone has a story and I love hearing those stories that make someone who they are and give them a "why" behind their work. If I am able to understand a candidates reason "why" I feel like I really start to learn about who they are. Anyone can say they are able to do something, but I am impressed when someone can give me a specific, real world, relevant example and relate it back to the career opportunity we are talking about. When I am speaking to someone more proactively I always appreciate someone who can clearly communicate what they have done and what would motivate them to make a career move. I love being able to look at someone's resume and see their career progression with a single company. I think it speaks volumes about somebody's commitment, buy in, work ethic, and ability to perform the job to a level that is setting them up for the next promotion. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: An updated resume, including an updated phone number and e-mail address is SO important. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Bad communication. I think recruiters sometimes get a bad reputation when it comes to communication and follow up, but I can speak for myself when I say that I will always be open, honest, and follow up with a candidate as quickly as possible. In return, I expect the same. Overall professionalism is huge. If someone is going to bad mouth a previous employer, show up to any type of interview late, or act overly demanding then it's an automatic disqualifier. 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.

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?
