Landing A Job Is All About Who You Know (Again)

By Callum Borchers and Lindsay Ellis May 30, 2024 Nine-hundred eighty-three people applied online for a job posted recently by tech recruiter Rob Tansey. The candidate who got the offer wasn’t one of them. Tansey, who scouts potential hires for aviation-software maker Veryon, received a half dozen referrals from a woman he knew from past job searches. One of those six quickly became the front-runner. That’s often how Tansey operates: He estimates that just 40% of successful applicants come in cold through his company’s job portal. “There’s an idealist in me that wants to look [...]

When New Hires Get Paid More…

By |2024-04-01T21:30:46-05:00March 29th, 2024|Blogs, Uncategorized|

By Andrea Derler, Peter Bamberger, Manda Winlaw, and Cuthbert Chow, Harvard Business Review, March 5, 2024 To attract top talent, employers often pay new hires more than they pay existing employees in equivalent roles. This isn’t new. But today, regulatory changes and technological advances have dramatically increased pay transparency in many sectors, making employees more aware of these pay disparities. Moreover, data from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce indicates that the workforce is expected to shrink in 2024, while a global survey of more than 30,000 employees found that salaries are expected to increase by an [...]

Is It Every OK To Host An 8 AM Meeting?

By Ann-Marie Alcántara, WSJ, February 25 2024 Your calendar is full of meetings. There are weekly check-ins, one-on-ones, hybrid planning calls, the meeting before the meeting and the meeting after the meeting. One gathering inflames passions like no other: the 8 a.m. meeting. Whether an early-morning meeting is a must-do or sign of management overreach depends on your feelings about work-life boundaries, and sometimes, your rung on the corporate ladder. Early-morning work hours are a hallmark of the finance and healthcare industries as well as education, and a standby of high-powered executives. Proponents of 8 [...]

By Dr. Richard Osibanjo (Forbes, December 30, 2023) As the New Year unfolds, many people embark on ambitious resolutions, only to see them unravel within the first month.

To ensure 2024 becomes your most successful year yet, consider these practical steps: . #1 Make self-reflection a habit: Self-reflection is a prerequisite for growth.

ENTREPRENEUR OR WANTREPRENEUR?

By |2023-08-07T14:10:40-05:00October 13th, 2022|Blogs, Uncategorized|

Being an entrepreneur, or having entrepreneurial abilities, is an admired trait in our society. If you asked a candidate in an interview if they view themselves as entrepreneurs, the socially acceptable answer is a resounding “absolutely”. If you asked individuals on your current team or in your department if they felt they had an entrepreneurial spirit, the answer would likely be affirmative. However, these types of questions often garner answers associated not with the true self, but with the idealized self. The idealized self is an image of what we should be, must be, [...]

OUR WORDS MATTER

By |2023-08-07T14:10:41-05:00July 14th, 2022|Blogs, Uncategorized|

Humans speak their first fully-formed words sometime between 9–12 months of age. It’s a big deal, delighting our parents and launching us into the world of interactive communication. For the rest of our lives, words are the foundation of (almost) everything we do. Psychologist and author Dr. Jordan Peterson says, “If you can think, speak, and write, you are absolutely deadly. Nothing can get in your way.” If Dr. Peterson is right, then why are we so often inattentive to, and careless with, the manner in which we use our words? There are lots of possible [...]
