A new survey of hiring managers and recruiters worldwide finds some interesting differences in the way online searches of job candidates take place in various countries. In addition, the study found some gender differences as well as differences in perception between HR professionals and consumers who post online.   Below is an article written by Michael O'Brien of the Human Resource Executive Online.  I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to contribute to the article.      The report highlights a growing concern that there is not enough governance in place to keep organizations protected from possible claims of…

Outback, home of Bloomin’ Onion, to offer lean meals, too

Outback Steakhouse's parent company will debut some low-calorie entrees as part of its effort to make it through what could be a rocky 2010. That was one of the announcements OSI Restaurant Partners of Tampa made during a conference call with investors and securities analysts Wednesday morning. In discussing its 2009 financial results, the company also announced that it lost about $54 million last year, a rough period for casual-dining restaurants nationwide.

  • Recruitment coaches help you think outside of your comfort zone.

    I was contacted by Joe about the job opportunity and at first I was against it. I was searching for something that was outside of my comfort zone and outside of the food industry. While talking with Joe he was so enthusiastic about the company that I said sure let’s give it a try. Joe was with me every single step of the way. From initial contact to me actually being hired he was there. He called/ texted me the day of my interview and encouraged me along the way. I was surprised and happy for his involvement to help me. I could always count on him for great advise and tips during the process. He shared my excitement each time I was contacted by the new company and followed my journey. He was always professional and was easily contacted when I had butterflies about me making the changes. I recommend Joe to any job seekers out there. He went above and beyond!

  • Recruitment Coaches are Your Coach for Life!

    All I can say about Mike is he has always been supportive and a great mentor to me over the past 8 years.  First as my Director of Operations with Mimi’s Café he always challenged me to be a better manager and encouraged my growth by having me take on leading weekly kitchen manager calls for his market and trusting me to go into troubled locations and helping to turn them around.  Most recently when my time with Mimi’s was over Mike was able to help me secure the next step in my journey in less than 3 weeks.

    Sincerely,

    Bob Nawa

    I was extremely impressed with Sharon's attention to detail and to make me feel comfortable.  She was in my corner the whole time.  I think it is really great that she actually eats at the restaurants that I will be managing so that is encouraging because that means they have a great working relationship!  I felt that she knew exactly how to prepare me for the interview and the resume that was created was very impressive!
