Goldman Sachs just exposed its soft underbelly in the talent war. It no longer sends humans to recruit the best new grads. It wants them to take automated tests, talk to robo-interviewers, and wait for algorithms to screen their applications. Goldman's competitors are licking their chops.
I beat HR at its own job because while some personnel jockey is hiding in an office diddling a database, I’m having lunch with the person the employer is going to hire.

Recruiters who process resumes (trust me: they don’t read them) don’t make hiring decisions. Hiring managers make hiring decisions.

There’s no reason to get into an argument with a prospective employer about an NCA or NDA. The best thing to do is negotiate it. When a company wants an NDA or NCA to protect its interests, then you should get something to protect yours. Always trade fair value. If a company is going to restrict your ability to earn a living, it should compensate you reasonably. Here's how.

Companies hire by putting a lot of recruiting circuits between the hiring manager and the best candidates. By the time a short list of candidates makes it to you, the best candidates have been lost, and a lot of wrong candidates have been added. That's called noise.

Companies routinely delegate the hiring process downward to managers and staff who have progressively less skin in the game. Thus, while A people hire A people, B people hire C people. Like a virus, one B person can devastate your entire organization. Sever the rotting B manager, or lose the whole body. http://www.cmo.com/opinion/articles/2016/6/3/disaster-in-the-making-a-people--b-people--c-companies.html

As corporate profits soar, you get paid less for your work. I love capitalism, but this isn’t capitalism — it’s greed, and it’s putting our economy and our society at risk because it’s devaluing the work you do and killing your motivation to be more productive.
In the May 24, 2016 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter, we dispense with the Q&A and explore some bad news about who's hogging the profits. Yes, You're Getting Screwed. While the price of fuel has dropped and airlines and their shareholders run to the bank with higher returns, you pay more to sit in ...

The most important commitment you can make to an employer is to say you want the job. That puts you on good footing to discuss other terms of the offer.

To optimize your chances of winning the right job, keep your standards high, and don’t do foolish things just because HR tells you to. Insist on meeting with the hiring manager first.

HR professionals cannot pretend to manage “human resources” while allowing employers — and the HR profession — to run amuck in the recruiting and hiring process, screwing up people's lives with impunity. It's time to take the blame.

Even the best-prepared job candidate can get nervous and come off like a blubbering rookie in an interview, and the meeting can suddenly go south.

When a company's hiring process is too rigid - we see it all the time - it puts you at a disadvantage. Should you comply, or walk away? It's a matter of degree. Be ready to finesse the encounter. Know how hard to push back to gain an advantage. Start probing and testing - but don't let them turn you into a beggar at the door.

Nick Corcodilos's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
The new facility is a marvel -- but what makes HHAH wonderful is the doctors and staff. You and your pet are treated with respect and real care, and a visit will take "as long as it needs to be." There's no rush, no sense that you're just a customer. You're a patient that they care about. Does your own doctor call you after a visit to check on you? The docs at HHAH do. Kudos to the docs and staff for keeping our pets healthy. We've been patients for almost 20 years and recommend HHAH highly.
