For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: LinkedIn Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Candidates may reach me by email or LinkedIn for the quickest response. I can alternately be reached by phone. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I am highly impressed with candidates who do their homework before an interview. They should have an understanding of the role and who we are; bonus points for those that research their interviewer and find opportunities to connect with them on a more personal level. I also admire confidence. If you have confidence in yourself, there is a good chance I will also have confidence in you! Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: I often receive applications via LinkedIn however no resume is attached. I collaborate with hiring managers from around the world and not all use LinkedIn as frequently as in Western cultures, for example, Germany or China. It's important to send me resumes when applying regardless of the job platform you apply from. I would also require a resume in either French or English. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: If I receive resumes in a language other than French or English, it's very difficult for me to consider you. Resumes who are completely disconnected from the role I have open and who don't have the necessary skill set would also be put aside. 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.
