How to Ace Your IT Interview – An Expert Weighs In
Monday, 14 July 2014 22:09

college grad job skillsLet’s face it; all interviews are not created equal, and there are very few resources out there to help people ace a technical interview. That’s because tech interviews are very different than any other profession.  

A recent article on Berkeley’s web site offers insightful advice from an expert on preparing for interviews with technical recruiters. For example, on a typical interview for coding, applicants will be expected to reverse a string, design a program or troubleshoot code that is laden with glitches. While it is entirely possible to find a forum that will guide you through the process, it is much easier to be successful when one can know exactly what to expect.

Hiring Trends: Blended Workforce, Big Data and Video Branding
Monday, 09 June 2014 21:01

hiring-nowEvery year it seems like the recruitment industry must adjust to more changes and evolving trends, and this year is no exception.  According to an article on Recruiter.com, “Innovative Staffing Practices: 2014 Trends,” there are several trends impacting the way people search for and find employment.  Hiring has trended upward, but it’s not the same kind of hiring as in previous years.  Data-mining and advanced search tools continue to point recruiters directly to the most qualified candidates, and corporate collateral materials are becoming “experiential” marketing tools that go far beyond an 8 ½ X 11” Executive Summary.  Meanwhile, in terms of hiring, college graduates with STEM degrees continue to outpace all other degrees by more than double.

How to Make the Internet Work Harder for Your Job Search
Tuesday, 20 May 2014 02:37

online job searchSometimes we just have a hunch that our job or position is about to be eliminated. Other times it is the company's instability or an overbearing boss. Whatever the reason, it's never a pleasant feeling to think you could be out of work any day. If you find yourself unsure about our primary source of income, it's usually time to move on. This shouldn't be a problem if you have a strong work history, but it can take a while to find a job. Looking for work is even more difficult when you're still in your current job, but that is always the best time to start searching.

Are You Headhunter Material or Not?
Thursday, 15 May 2014 16:16

There is a common perception that recruiters represent the candidate, not the client.  The reverse is actually true.  Clients pay us to find people they don't have the time or resources to find on their own.  They pay us to save them time and make their lives easier.  If a recruiter says he will not be able to help you, it doesn't mean that you are a bad person or unskilled; it probably just means that you do not fit into our current client base.  Read this LinkedIn article below for more information.
