Why You Should Always Ask the Hiring Manager, “What Would a Typical Day Look Like?”

In case you missed it: WHAT (CAREER SEEKERS) NEED TO KNOW: Great question for those of you who get stuck on what questions to ask during the interview. REACTIONS: We constantly have candidates us what questions should they be asking when they are asked. This article was useful because it has a question that would be useful for your hiring manager meeting. We think it's a useful and accurate way to gauge their expectations about the job and what would or wouldn't be important. VERDICT: Skim it: The question is simple and straightforward - the value is in the follow-up and what is or isn't said. Don't think the important part is asking the question - it's all about the dialog it creates. #care

What Emails Reveal About Your Performance At Work

In case you missed it: WHAT (BUSINESS LEADERS) NEED TO KNOW: Big data + emails can help us better predict performance and retention. REACTIONS: For many of us, we won't have access to these tools - but reading about the findings is very helpful. There are some inherent biases in here (not everyone prefers to communicate via email), but we don't feel it takes away from the value of some of the findings. One of the top takeaways - the author's pet peeve about folks who just forward emails without updating the subject line. A great suggestion for what to do instead. Start patterning it today in your organization. VERDICT: Skim It: We were borderline on this - the article had a lot of good infor

Actually, Cold Emailing Can Work for Small Businesses

In case you missed it: WHAT (TALENT ACQUISITION EXPERTS) NEED TO KNOW: Basic tips on how to make cold calls more effective - written for small businesses, but we think it's relevant for TA folks searching for talent. REACTIONS: Marketing is a big part of sourcing candidates and this article has some easy to use ideas to keep the top of mind when reaching out to candidates. Particularly helpful was the reminder to "Make it Personal." Too often, we see emails that are about how the reader can help the sender and not vice versa. Nothing says "I care" more than a note that was written especially for the reader. VERDICT: SKIM IT. Since there are no specific examples, the bold headlines tell you p

How the Culture of Presenteeism Impacts Both Employees and Businesses

In case you missed it: WHAT (BUSINESS LEADERS) NEED TO KNOW: Sick employees coming into the workplace are not always a sign of dedication. REACTIONS: Introducing a new buzzword - Presenteeism. It’s a kind of busy work - people who come to work because they feel they have to. This has a chain impact on others and can help set up a dysfunctional work culture. Can also negatively impact the bottom line - increased workplace sickness, lower employee morale, higher mistakes, increased burnout. VERDICT: READ IT. Based on a UK study, but the concepts also apply to US-based companies. As a Leader, ask yourself - Am I inadvertently creating a toxic work environment when I let sick people come into wo

LinkedIn Builds ATS and Launches New Diversity Insights

In case you missed it: WHAT (TALENT ACQUISITION EXPERTS) NEED TO KNOW: LinkedIn is getting into the ATS space. REACTIONS: ATS providers look out - LinkedIn is moving into your neck of the woods. While this may be many recruiter's dreams, it could easily be a double-edged sword. The tool that you use to find talent could also be used by others to steal your own employees. Also, while there seem to be diversity components, not clear how equity will be addressed. And, of course, what happens when you are targeting someone who doesn't have a LinkedIn profile? Yes, they are out there and you will still need to reach them. VERDICT: READ IT: The ATS has many features that most recruiters dream of b

10 Impressive Questions to Ask in a Job Interview

In case you missed it: WHAT (CAREER SEEKERS) NEED TO KNOW: A great cheat sheet for those of us who freeze up when we are asked "So, what do you want to ask me?" during an interview. REACTIONS: Asking smart questions is always an important part of the interviewing process. First of all, it helps you learn important facts about the opportunity or employer. Secondly, it helps establish that you are interested in the role and engaged. However, for many of us, it can be hard coming up with good questions. We freeze. Well, here's a solution. You can thank us later. VERDICT: Skim It: Look through the list and focus on the ones that feel most relevant to you. Be sure to come up with follow-up questi
