Congrats- you have landed an interview! Now what? It is important to dress for success and make a positive first impression that will last.   Many times people ask “does your appearance really impact getting the job or not?” And the answer is, “YES”. A first impression on a recruiter conducting an interview will mean a lot. It is essential to look your best when introducing yourself for the first time. When deciding what to wear it is always best to choose a conservative outfit. Dressing modest and professional is important. Dressing conservatively shows you are making an effort, you do not want to offend and also conservative dress shows how you are polite and respectful. If you walk into an interview with pants sagging below your waist or a skirt so tight and short you are barely able to take a seat- that leaves an impression, and not a good one. It is also of essence to ensure you dress one or two levels up. A good “rule of thumb” is to dress one or two levels nicer than the position you are interviewing for. Unless told otherwise always wear a suit for the first interview. It is always better to be overdressed, than...

My clients aren’t surprised when I coach them on how to keep a valued employee. While they are certainly aware that we make money through placements, they more than appreciate the genuine effort I make to help them retain their most valued people. That’s because as a Certified Employee Retention Specialist- (CERS) designated recruiter, I place just as much emphasis on keeping employees as I do the effort to find them in the first place. The CERS designation sets me apart as a top-tier, strategic collaborator with the client. The intensive reading, workshop training and mandatory continuing education have given me insight into the motivation and incentives that drive top talent and ensures stability and productivity for my clients.  It’s not difficult to see the solution to the problem of employee malcontent. It all boils down to emotion. Employees are human, first and foremost, and as such have a basic need to feel valued and appreciated. I work with clients to maintain an environment that engages employees and demonstrates a genuine appreciation. When developing engagement practices and a recognition program, there are 5 key things to keep in mind: Start with the right people!  Give employees the authority to meet their responsibilities.

Tips for the Transplant Candidate

Do you think it's hard trying to find the perfect job? Try being a transplant candidate looking for that job. The job search stresses increase.  We can define a transplant candidate as someone trying to relocate to a specific location without sacrificing that next paycheck.  In a recent case study, we've followed a female, age 35, originally from Boston who is married with 2 young kids under 4, and a combined family income approx $160,000 living in Queens, New York.   The mission was to relocate her family back to Boston and the number one reason desiring the move was to be closer to family to help raise the young children. Do you happen to know of anyone in a similar situation as this? We bet you do.  Both husband and wife are well educated with multiple degrees, both resumes scream talent. Additionally, both are willing to even take a step back in their career if it means changing zip codes.  And the results of their job search?  It has now been going on for 2.5 yrs and they are still wearing their Yankee Hats! Sure they've reached out to recruiters, but it shows they won't consider their application because they know their client is going to...
