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

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? If you focus on what you left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead What do you like to do in your free time? My family and friends are #1! If I am not spending time with them you can most likely find me in the lake, on the mountain (snowboarding) or at the gym In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? The development and the opportunity to grow with the organization In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Team lunches and department outings In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Every single person is a wealth of knowledge

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.

Let's start with the basics...
