Innovation During Chaos

If something the COVID-19 has brought front and center is the need to operate our businesses under unusual circumstances efficiently, and effectively. We have faced the need to get creative like never before. Although it may feel that the rug has been pulled out of our feet, it is time that we see beyond the current situation and look at the bigger picture.

Who’s Your Recruiter

Nothing can replace the expression on someone’s face, the tone of their voice, or the observation of body language. This applies to both candidate and interviewer. The personal exchange that happens when the applicant becomes more than the words on the resume and turns into a candidate is possible only through human interaction.

The Hidden Costs of DIY Hiring

In a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ world, HGTV and Pinterest make everything seem so easy. One thing we hear from clients who try DIY when it comes to hiring is that they felt they wasted so much time only to discover that the candidates they were interviewing weren’t really the right ones.

Executing the Interview Strategy

“Because strong interview performance is the greatest precursor for your success, it’s important to be prepared. Most interviews are behavioral in nature, so be ready to draw from all your life’s experiences. While you should keep the main focus on past career successes, don’t be afraid to provide examples from your personal life, volunteer activities, etc. It’s also key that you are concise yet provide enough evidence of strengths in the areas that will be covered by the interviewer. The interview is your gateway to your new position, so be relaxed, reflect on past successes and be ready to continue the path to your success!” Lisa Donnelly, Human Capital Partner for Winner Partners
