How to Reach Qualified Applicants in Time

Job-seekers are applying to many jobs at once. In some cases that could be because they want to shop around and find a perfect match, and in other cases it may be because they can’t afford to miss a paycheck and need a new job right away.

In either instance, the first employer to respond will have the attention of the applicant, and a leg up on the competition. After that, make it your number one priority to get them through the hiring process as quickly as possible, and with the least amount of friction...

Time to Reset

Have you ever stopped to look at your weekly calendar and wondered, “How did all these things become my routine?” It’s as if meetings, tasks, responsibilities, and obligations just fell into place over time without any idea of where they came from or why they’re there.

How You Doin’?

Many of you endured a massive snow storm recently. If you’re in the snow business, these big storms drag on for many days. But more to the point of this blog post, they test us. They test every part of a person’s capacity. They test every aspect of a company's internal systems. They test each and every machine’s performance.

If you’re not in the snow business, you are being tested in other ways. Some of you are working from home, cooped up, and stuck in a virtual world. Some of you are doing the work of several people because your company is short-handed. We’re constantly being tested.

So, my question is, “How you doin’?”

Finding balance in our lives is not easy, but it is possible. I’d like to share with you a quick thought about this topic and an invitation.
