The top 10 reasons candidates hate recruiters so much

Posted by Jane Turkewitz on October 15th, 2014 at 6:43 am

I’m on the phone all day talking to candidates. The stories I hear about other recruiters blow….my….mind. Don’t get me wrong, hiring managers commit all kinds of atrocities. And candidates, you guys pull some doozies as well. Stay tuned for those mind boggles in future posts.
If you’re a recruiter, you’re #1 goal should be to build a reputation for being the go-to resource in your business when it comes to candidates seeking a career change. Too many of you make “closing the deal” your priority. That myopic, short-term tunnel vision is what has turned recruiters into bottom feeders.
Below are the top 10 complaints I hear about other recruiters. If you are a recruiter and recognize this bad behavior as your own, perhaps it’s time to take a long look in the mirror. After all, change starts one individual at a time.
#1: “I get five calls a week from five different recruiters.” There is an absolute over-saturation of recruiters in the digital media field. Many are in it because they think there’s “big money” in recruiting. What they don’t realize is that success comes with a deep knowledge... Read more

IT and marketing used to be separate fields. But as the internet becomes increasingly mainstream as a marketing platform, those walls are fast dissolving.

Website Design
It would seem this goes without saying, but websites are not what they used to be a decade ago. For many visitors, this is the first interaction a user will have with a company. A website is no longer an ancillary part of doing business in a global economy. It is often the first place a potential customer goes. It now requires the same professional look that would go into more traditional media campaigns. Beyond that, sites require differing levels of interactivity with customers from simple blogs and email to interactive shopping systems and live, online customer support.
Just as important is the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) put in place for a site. Entrepreneur magazine cites SEO as one of the most important elements of a site in regard to Conversion. You will have to understand how to... Read more

What To Know When Pursuing a Marketing Career

Posted by Morgan Sims on September 21st, 2014 at 11:10 am

Marketing can be a lucrative career that can also be fulfilling at the same time. When you can find a job that you look forward to doing on a daily basis, you will feel like you haven't worked a day in your entire life. Instead, you will embrace the challenge of making people feel good about the product that they are about to spend their hard-earned money on.
What Skills Should Marketing Professionals Have?
There are many skills that marketing professionals will need in order to do their job well. First, those who are in marketing will need a passion for their job. If they are not interested in the product they are pitching, why would a customer want to buy that product? Next, marketing professionals should have a thorough understanding of both the product being sold and an understanding of why a customer would want to buy that product. Finally, one needs to be sincere, authentic and able to forge relationships with customers.

Offer as Much Guidance as Possible
