Information and Advice Pages for Job Seekers

The key to finding a good job is getting the right information about recruiters and available jobs. You have to understand the market to be successful. That is not an easy task, since many of the job seekers may not have been looking for a job in decades.

To have a long term future in a job, you have to search for a job that fits your education, personality and your interests. Some people take a job because it is offered, not because it is right for them. Others accept job offers, because the attention of the human resource manager or the employer flatters them.

They are not particularly interested in the company or the job. Being flattered by the attention given to them, they forget to look at the job and the company, and to think about whether the job is really the kind of long-term future they want to create for themselves.

Pleased to have found a job, or impressed at being recruited, they will justify a poor choice and accept work that does not fit their abilities or satisfy them. Gradually, they lose interest, their working morale drops and their performance suffers. It is like a downward spiral. Ultimately they might get fired, laid off, or they quit, and the cycle starts again.

Employees and businesses today cannot afford to lose time and money from bad hiring decisions or using the wrong Employment Agencies. Your key employees are important to your business and good information and advice will give you the expertise and experience to help you locate those jobs, or employees, that truly will make a difference to you.

We are often told by employers that "People are our Greatest Assets"

I do not know how many times I have been told by employers, hiring managers and CEO's that "people are our greatest assets". And then I look at the company closer, see that they pay wages a person can hardly live on, have managers and supervisors who behave, as if they were still living in the 19th Century and benefit packages (vacation, insurance etc.) that lets one ask where the "benefits" are.

The gap between what many employers say and how they deal with employees is widening. It is easier to call employees "associates" rather than the 20th Century "workers", but welding them into a cohesive social whole, that becomes a productive unit, adding real value-added to the economy, is something quite different.

However,"People become your greatest Asset", when you are looking for a job. Most of the time, especially in these difficult economic environment, it is often less important what you know, then who you know. The majority of jobs which become available are never open to the public at large. They are certainly not advertised. So the only way you will know about it, is through other people. Networking and making connections become important assets in your job search portfolio. You need to get to the job with a personal connection! Even better, you should know long before the job opening becomes public!

Although, many jobs today are filled via the internet and the view persists that because of the internet, the hiring process has become more efficient. Far from it. The only thing the internet did was to decrease your ability to establish personal contacts with hiring managers. Consequently, move your job searches from the internet back to the personal level: Use your connection and who you know! That is, where "People become your greatest Asset"
