Seat-Warmer Wanted

I recently had a discussion with a general manager of a medium-sized insurance business and we were talking about recruitment and how difficult it was to find experienced personnel.

 

The next thing I heard her say caught me completely off guard…”All I want is a warm body to fill the seats.”  Yikes! That didn’t sound like a very good plan to me in view of the fact that they had high turnover, which is what prompted the discussion in the first place.

Resumes for the Job Search

Many of us are very well aware of what a resume is and why one is used. The thing many don’t seem to realize however; is that a resume should be done specifically for the job to which you are applying.

The ‘one size fits all’ doesn’t work anymore. We have turned the corner yet again. Not that long ago, employees could almost name their price – quality candidates were few and far between.
