Job Speed DatingSpeed dating might not be just for singles anymore as some companies are using a similar format while interviewing candidates. If it leads to success in personal life, it may as well work in business. This format allows companies to accelerate the selection process and compare applicants more easily while decreasing the risk of losing great candidates in the normally long interview process which can sometimes take weeks or even months.

Non-traditional recruiting method has many advantages for job seekers as well. First of all, it’s a great opportunity to talk to many potential employers. It also gives an idea on how many people are looking for a job in your industry. Entry level candidates can gain valuable interviewing experience. In the end, even if you are not offered a job, you can still get some tips or recommendations from employers.

volunteer_jobsWe are often asked this question and I firmly believe the right answer is it depends.  You have to look at the one’s situation (both financial and professional) as well as the volunteer position considered. Volunteer work can often help your job search but in some cases may get in the way. There are several things to consider whether to work for free when unemployed. Here are some things to consider:

May Turn into a Paying Job A temporary volunteer position may turn into a full time paid position, depending on the position itself as well as the organization’s need and your track record. If this is something you have in mind, it may be a good idea to cheek whether this is even possible for the position you are considering. Sometimes such opportunities may open up down the road, when the organization you would be volunteering for gets additional funding.

Great Addition to a Resume Many professional recruiters would tell you that a relevant volunteer position on your resume looks a lot better than having an extensive gap in your employment. In fact, pro bono work is often respected and having this experience on your resume may actually help you get a job.  You don’t even have to mention that it was an unpaid job and if you had a volunteer position with duties and responsibilities and you have shown real achievements – make a note of that on your resume!

TimesheetsTO: ALL PERSONNEL
FROM: ACCOUNTING
It has come to our attention recently that many of you have been turning in timesheets that specify large amounts of “Miscellaneous Unproductive Time” (Code 5309). However, we need to know exactly what you are doing during your unproductive time.

Attached below is a sheet specifying a tentative extended job code list based on our observations of employee activities.

The list will allow you to specify with a fair amount of precision what you are doing during your unproductive time. Please begin using this job-code list immediately and let us know about any difficulties you encounter. Thank you, Accounting

Don't let a pink slip ruin your daySenators Bernie Sanders (Vermont) and Charles Grassley (Iowa) have introduced legislation that would bar any company that lays off 50 or more employees from hiring foreign workers. The two lawmakers have already added H1B hiring restrictions to the financial bailout bill earlier this year, Computerworld reports. The new proposed legislation, called Employ America Act, can potentially affect a broad range of tech firms that continue hiring after laying off large numbers of employees. It will also apply to companies that hire H2B visa workers. H2B visas are mostly used in construction, health care, food service, and other industries.

“With the unemployment rate over 10%, companies that undertake mass layoffs shouldn’t need to hire foreign guest workers when there are plenty of qualified Americans looking for jobs,” said Grassley. According to the two senators, the high-tech industry alone has laid off more than 340,000 workers since August 2008.
