I mean, how many times have we seen candidates without degrees try to squeeze their way into positions that they aren't qualified for. In fact, many hiring managers (maybe like yourself) believe that college degrees make candidates more job-ready. However, the current job market has shifted so much recently that it begs the question

They have been fighting the symptoms of a too-long-hiring process without addressing the problem at the root.

Latest Blog Posts: to Write a Job Description?It might be tempting to overlook the importance of a well-written job description. After all, if you’ve posted job ads before and ended up with tons of resumes in hand, it’s easy to assume that this will always be the case, regardless of how your job ad reads. But, in reality, you really can’t take getting an influx of resumes for granted. to Get a W2 From Previous EmployersWhen tax time rolls around, the last thing you want to worry about is having to track down a W-2 from your former employer. Many times you won’t have to because the IRS requires companies to send these forms to all current and former employees who have earned more than $600 in the last year. Unfortunately, there are employers who don’t do what they’re supposed to. There are even times where something else may happen that prevents the W-2 from getting where it’s supposed to go. to Ask Someone to be a Reference + Email TemplatesOne part of the job-hunting process that frequently gets overlooked is putting together a list of good references. Most of the time we focus on creating the perfect resume, writing an awesome cover letter, and getting our hands on letters of recommendation. We think about what outfit we’ll wear to the job interview, how we’ll answer those tricky questions, and what our career plan looks like. But, in fact, having multiple references lined up who will speak favorably about you to a potential employer is critical to landing a job. This aspect of job searching really can’t be ignored. Rejection Email Response with ExamplesGlassdoor estimates that, on average, there are about 250 applicants for every job vacancy out there. If you’ve ever applied for a job, the odds are that you’ve received the dreaded job rejection email. Far Back Should a Resume Go, Exactly?If you’re reading this article, then chances are you’re looking for a new job and want to whip your resume into shape. But lots of questions can arise as you begin to do that. After all, most of us aren’t career coaches or resume experts. One common question that job hunters frequently ask is: how far back should a resume go? As in, should you list all of your work history – even if it stretches on for years – or should you be more selective? vs Unstructured InterviewsThe goal of an interview is to evaluate candidates based on their skills, personality, and knowledge. You want to choose the BEST candidate from your candidate pool, so the interview is something you can't mess up. As you begin planning your interview process, one of the major decisions you'll face is whether the interview should be a structured vs unstructured interview. So let's take a dive into the differences and sort out which circumstances warrant which interview process. to Describe Your Personality with ExamplesImagine you’re in an elevator with the CEO of your dream company and you get to talking. The conversation is going well and you start to imagine yourself working for their company when the CEO turns around and asks you “tell me a bit about yourself.” Would this catch you off guard or would you be able to give a clear and succinct description of who you are?
