The Future of recruiting mobile: It wasn’t even half a decade ago that top-of-the-line smartphones were out of the question for most. Today, we reach for our phones as a reflex. Faced with an unanswered question, a moment of free time, or virtually any unmet need, we turn to our smartphones. Because we shop, pay, talk, meet, and learn on our phones, it only makes sense that we would start to look for new jobs on our phones as well. Indeed, the future of recruiting is mobile. What Is Mobile Recruiting?  …Read More…

5 Tips to make your remote sales reps connected and successful: Together, new technologies and changing philosophies on work/life balance have created an increasingly mobile workforce. In a survey of business leaders at the Global Leadership Summit in 2014, more than a third of respondents said half their full-time employees would be working remotely by 2020.

A massive shift like this will have a profound impact across all industries and fields, but perhaps the effects will be even more pronounced in sales. Salespeople thrive on the energy of engaging with others, and they need to be motivated on a daily basis. ..Read More..

Overcoming past legal issues to land the job: Questions around past legal trouble have come up multiple times recently, so it’s worth addressing. A reader writes, “I’m a job seeker with a felony record and a college degree. I can’t expunge the record, and I’m not sure what to do. Where should I begin?” First, I’m sorry to hear that this is a common issue people face in the work world. It can be difficult from both the employee’s and the employer’s perspective. One common scenario is someone making a mistake at a young age, learning from the experience, growing up, and moving on. Unfortunately, their legal record doesn’t move on with them. …Read More…

Your company can get top talent for less- by earning great reviews: When it comes to employees, you get what you pay for. Offer competitive salaries, and you’ll have a better chance of attracting the best. But those salaries don’t necessarily have to be higher than everyone else’s if your company earns great reviews on Glassdoor, according to a new study conducted independently by academics at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in Spain. Not only did the study find that candidates are more likely to apply to jobs after reading good reviews of the company, but it also found that candidates would accept lower salaries from positively reviewed companies than they would from competitors.. …Read More…
