For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email is always the most effective way of following up with me. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Candidates with the combination of a solid educational background (even if certs vs BS degree) and work history, especially those involved in professional development. However, more than anything attitude impresses me. Candidates with a great attitude that is demonstrated throughout the process and verified by former colleagues is what impresses me most. Great at their craft AND a quality team member? You can't beat that. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Cover letters are wonderful for showing a recruiter or hiring manager how you fit the position you're applying for and they set you apart from the rest of the candidates. Genuine enthusiasm about an opportunity and knowledge about the employer's business are vital as well. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Lack of required skills and bad attitude (or apparent disinterest). Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

I spoke to a senior business leader who talked about how the thoughts of navigating the risks associated with some of the business processes he currently manages keep him awake. He leads the segment of his company that coordinates customers' activities, mobile transactions, and e-commerce payments. Some of the reasons why he was worried were:

  • Possibility of a hacker compromising customer data for spam or identity theft
  • The fear that a customer data breach will result in a reputational damage
  • Concern that someone might use a stolen card to make an online purchase
  • Thoughts of an employee mistakenly sending confidential data to a wrong email
