TIS THE SEASON TO BE LOOKING…FALALALALALALA…Now Is The BEST Time To Start Checking Out New Opportunities…

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Every year around this time (actually even earlier), I start getting flooded with calls asking if this is a good time to look for a new opportunity.  My answer in short is: it is the BEST time to look, as many projects are wrapping up, the year is coming to an end, and a mild short-term break is on the horizon.

Starting a job in January is probably one of the best times to join a company. Everyone is fresh (sort-of) and coming back from some well-deserved time off.  Spirits are high, as is the conversation and camaraderie, as everyone shares their holiday stories. At the same time, all are trying to get back into the routine of work again for another year.  It is a rare bit of social time right before the year starts its long grind, and a good time to meet and fraternize with new soon-to-be colleagues.


Where is the Value Proposition In Using A Recruiter And Who Benefits Most, The Candidate or The Company…The State Of The Job Market…Coming, My Amazing Interview with CEO Wally Rhines…

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

The answer to the first question might surprise you: both sides benefit equally.  A good recruiter does all the follow-up for both sides splitting his/her loyalty down the middle so both sides are represented fairly and everyone feels that they got a fair shake…something that’s so important in a small start-up environment and the best way to start the relationship.

The clear value proposition for the company comes from eliminating the mountains of bad resumes a company deals with, since a good recruiter only submits appropriate qualified resumes (which incidentally, should not be many).  For the candidate, it means finding appropriate fits to their background, getting their resume into the right hands, and then those hands having the relationship to follow-up and discuss the candidate.  VALUE PROPOSITION-CASE IN POINT…I just placed a candidate at a company that initially did not want to look at him.  In fact, they looked at the three other resumes (and interviewed the candidates) before proceeding on to him.  The CEO told me he did not seem to have the right background…I disputed his thinking, as he had 80% of what the company wanted, and further had the right type of personality so necessary to be a successful AE.  So I pressed him to at least talk to him, and talk to him he did.  He was in for a technical interview two days later and a job offer a few days after that.  Had the candidate sent his resume directly, he would have never been given the time of day…what made the difference was the belief that the company had in my knowledge of EDA (as it should be with any good recruiter), and the faith the candidate had in me to get him into the right hands.  That is VALUE PROPOSITION AT ITS BEST!!!!
