I Want to Help You in Your Career, But Here's Why I'm Not Going To

by CHRISTIE MIMS You’ve probably been told you need to network, right? It’s the fastest way to learn about job opportunities and get help finding your passion—and most importantly, it’s something that will literally pay you in the end if done correctly. So after hearing all that, you’ve probably thought “OK, I’ll drag myself off and do it.” You grab your best networking shoes, paste on a smile, and prepare to start sending out some emails!

Project an Employee-First Culture by Offering Severance Packages

JASON MCDOWELL How an employee is treated on the way out can be just as important as how they are treated during their time with the company. A reputation for helping outgoing employees makes a business more attractive to top talent compared to its competitors. As the nature of the workforce changes, the generosity and scope of severance packages are changing as well. Fifty-four percent of companies cite “projecting an employee-first culture” as a main reason to offer severance, according to the “2017 Guide to Severance and Workforce Transition”

by: ROSE STANLEY  Many organizations try to improve their healthcare costs by implementing wellness programs, but they would probably get a bigger bang for their buck if they focused more on holistic employee well-being instead. Well-being programs can reduce a variety of costs to an organization’s bottom line in addition to healthcare costs, which can be difficult to lower directly through specific wellness programs.

Using a Tailored Competency Model to Hire the Right People

by: JASON MCDOWELL  Every recruiter and hiring manager knows it’s best to seek candidates who align with the company’s long-term objectives, but knowing and doing are two different things. Getting the right candidate the first time can be a challenge – and going through multiple candidates before finding the right one can be expensive. With the right competency models in place, however, organizations can increase the accuracy of hiring decisions and cut down on hiring costs. Each organization has its own culture and recruitment needs, so it’s im

Interview questions you want to ask, but shouldn’t

Despite new recruitment technologies and fancy applicant tracking systems, sitting down face-to-face with a candidate remains one of the best and quickest ways to determine whether someone is a good fit for a job opening.

In an attempt to make the most of the opportunity to get to know the candidate, you might want to grill them for every last bit of information.

How to Gain Work Experience While You’re Still in School

I was recently speaking to a group of students about their career aspirations and the task of finding work after graduation when the topic of “entry-level roles” came up. Anyone who has looked at listings for entry-level roles recently has probably noticed that the vast majority of them ask for candidates who have experience already – which can pose a challenge for recent graduates. When you are studying, it can be hard to find the time to gain work experience that is relevant to your career goals – especially if you already have another job to pay the
