Can't Find Good Candidates? Take a Long, Hard Look at Your Brand

"Where have all the good (wo)men gone?" Ever heard a someone say something like this while in the dating scene? I certainly have. And I have heard the same kind of complaint in recruiting, too — from frustrated job seekers who say there are no more good companies out there, and from business owners who feel the pool of great candidates has simply dried up.

How to Manage 'Opportunity Overload' While Job Searching

In the last half of 2017, I noticed a major change in the average job search. Many people seem to have gone from struggling with not enough options to struggling with too many options. At first glance, the latter may seem like a better problem to have. The truth is that both scenarios often result in the same thing: A person not getting the right job, the job they actually want. When you...
