The Undercover Recruiter

A few months ago, I wrote a blog about the frustrations of imaginary jobs posted on internet job boards.

But there is another type of imaginary job – the job scam. Job Scam Targets. Avoiding Job Scams.

How to Handle Salary Conversations with Confidence

Tim's Strategy

In both my recruiting and my job search coaching, I’ve been hearing a lot of questions about salary negotiations lately so I’ve put together a little Q&A of common questions. First, though, let’s talk about the mindset of salary for your new job. Many of us have issues around worthiness and putting the right price on our own services (which is all a salary is… the price for your services). Don’t negotiate for the sake of negotiating.

I left a job in November due to ill health, and got a new job in March. I got amazing feedback from the recruiters thanks to your advice, but two weeks after I started, lockdown began, and two weeks later I was furloughed. But after a bit of moping and really thinking through what I wanted, I managed to land an amazing new job near me- and they’ve just offered me a salary that’s 10% higher than I was even going to ask!

my employee asked me to be a job reference, interpersonal issues and HR, and more

Ask a Manager

My employee told me they loved their current job but it was a good opportunity worth looking at. It’s understandable to be surprised when you hear an employee might be on the verge of leaving, but it’s your job as a manager to handle it professionally , including giving them a good reference if they’re a good employee. That was a big overstep — that’s between her and your employee, and it’s not something you have standing to negotiate. The reality is, employees leave jobs!

I can understand saving up some time in case you needed additional cash after a lay off or before starting a new job. Plus, I’d really like to work with folks that are not constantly burned out.

is allowing smoke breaks unfair to non-smokers? — Ask a Manager

Ask A Manager

But it DOES have a policy where you get a 10 minute break for every 4 hours you work, and a half hour for every 6 hours you work (it amounts to a break every 2 hours, more or less). And even if its slow, labor cutbacks have made it so there is ALWAYS more work that needs to be done.
