We need smart, skilled, experienced managers with insight and good judgment to hire the best people. No algorithm by itself is going to yield a great team. Algorithms are the lazy employer’s solution du jour.

If you’re working at a start-up without these two protections, I’m sorry to tell you that you’re probably a chump.

Learn to tell an employer it's got 5 days to make you an offer -- then "walk." When employers cry there's a "talent shortage," you've got more leverage than you think. So show some integrity.

Why does HR make you do all the work of getting rejected without ever meeting a manager? HR makes the talent work for free to fill up HR’s insatiable algorithmic machines. The talent’s time is wasted completing job application forms that no one will read. Here’s my warning to HR: “Stop treating the talent like its time is worthless.”

@Joseph Betancourt: Don't be so surprised :-). Good managers really do want to talk to good applicants! GO AROUND HR!

When is a job interview something more? When two people with brains sit down for a business exchange. Most interviewers aren't worth your time, so don't start with them when you want a job. Have a New Interview.

Whatever criteria you use to self-edit your most important work must be applied to everything you do.

If managers are not personally spending at least 20 to 30 percent of their time (that’s 1 to 2 days per week) identifying, meeting, cultivating, recruiting, interviewing and hiring great people, they’re not earning their keep. Managers who hide behind HR — or who fear HR — don’t deserve the title. Hiring is every manager’s No. 1 job. Managers who don’t recruit should be sent packing.

A job search is not so much about “jobs” as it is about choosing an employer for which you can produce a credible business plan to justify hiring you. If you do it right, the creation of a job follows on your creation of a strong business case. If you want to make job hunting “easier” than that, there are loads of job boards I know that will help you waste all the time you want.

 If someone will pay a million bucks to acquire your brand, then you have a brand. Otherwise, stick to earning a great reputation.

HR has left the building. There’s a stuffed animal in the HR VP’s chair signing contracts, outsourcing hiring to clowns wearing psychologists’ hats. These employers consider their employees fungible commodities.

Have you ever asked for an early raise, when you realized a new job was far more than you were told? Or did you quietly keep doing the job without asking for more money?
I have been working for a small company for six months. My duties expanded dramatically soon after I was hired. When I got here, I walked into a disaster. It took a lot of hard work, but now I've got the department going like clockwork. I think I've demonstrated that I'm worth more than my ...

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.
