14 Numbers You Need to See in Your Candidate’s CV

The Undercover Recruiter

When assessing a candidate’s suitability for your vacancies, it’s vital to see facts and figures throughout their CV. Numbers provide scale, context and give you a much greater understanding of candidate capabilities – without them, many statements can be left open to interpretation.

Businesses Steal $15 Billion a Year from Employees. Is Your Business One of Them?

Evil HR Lady

Wage theft sounds like something that sleazy men in back rooms perpetrate to further oppress their employees. While that does happen, a lot of wage theft is unintentional. A new study from the Economics Policy Institute (EPI) says that employers short their employees by $15 billion a year, which means that millions of people are paid less than minimum wage for their work. This is, of course, illegal, and everyone reading this article knows this, so why on earth would your company be in violation?

how to speak up when women in your office are called “girls”

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I need help with a script for speaking up in the moment when my coworkers call grown women “girls.” ” Full disclosure – I am a cisgender woman who was radicalized as a leftist feminist in grade school in the 70’s (by radical Catholic school nuns who also did service work in South America, by the way). I now work in an urban area that bills itself as equitable and sophisticated, and for the most part, that proves true. However, this problem persists!

100 Days of Feminist Ads

Evil HR Lady

Feminism can be a loaded term. From people who believe it means that men and women are equal to people who believe women are superior, and everything between, saying you’re a feminist can conjure up a myriad of images about what you are. It’s not a term I personally like to use, but I’m in love with the Instagram project 100 Days of Feminist Ads.

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: Am I being unprofessional/unfriendly if I don’t engage in the “how are you/fine how are you/fine” interactions at my office? It feels deeply inauthentic. “Fine” is never the best answer for how I’m feeling, and it feels painful to say when in actuality I’m going through a rough time. When I ask someone how they are, I actually want to know, so hearing “fine” is also frustrating.

how to deal with weird interview questions

I’m quoted in this Lifehacker article about how to deal with weird questions in job interviews. One point I wanted to stress to the interviewer is that there are two categories of these questions: (1) brainteasers like “how many golf balls can you fit into an airplane?” ” where the interviewer wants to hear you problem-solve out loud, and (2) just plain weird questions like “what kind of a tree would you be?”.
