Especially if they’re employed. Here are the usual intervals and what they mean to me. I’m sure you’ve got some adjustments to these definitions: For Those Currently Working: –No Notice Needed, I can start in under a …

Today’s workforce is very impatient. We want to grow and develop and get promoted, and we want it all to come very quickly. To be perfectly frank, we believe we are entitled to it. I am your employee, and so therefore you should be giving me things. Lots of things. So many things. I don’t even care what those things …

Unemployment rates haven’t quite reached zero (at least, not yet!) but with figures so low and the economy booming, it’s never been a harder time to be a recruiter. As we continue to see more job openings posted than people to fill them, we’ve finally reached the tipping point when it comes to hiring. As a Fistful of Talent faithful, …

Alright, you may ask what does being placed at table 19 mean. Well, it is a metaphor taken from the Movie “Table 19”.

Let’s talk about you for a second. Let’s not make small talk or dig into things I really can’t relate to because I don’t know you – your friends, your family, your fantasy football league – whatever. Instead, let’s talk about your career. How’s THAT Going? For some of you, it’s going great. Others have careers that are a dumpster fire …

Oh, the joy of New Year’s resolutions. This year I’ve decided to document my 6 professional resolutions (except that I’m lazy and shortened the word “professional” to “profesh.” Why? Well, because I’m a millennial). For those of you who are really anal about making SMART goals, you may want to avert your eyes. These resolutions are not time-bound, and there’s not …

My favorite movie line of all time and something every HR practitioner needs to do, “Sometimes you need to just say ‘what the ****’ and take some risks.” The quote comes from the movie Risky Business. Joel, the character played by Tom Cruise, is much like a teenage version of an HR pansy. Coasting through life on smarts, good looks …

Gen X version: “Call me (call me) on the line Call me, call me any, anytime“ Millennial version: “Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here’s my number, So call me, maybe!” Aside from the observation that Millennials are much coyer in their request for a call (“So call me, maybe!”) and those of us who identify …
