Perhaps I should have noted: This is meant to be satire. A great first step to screening for new hires would be to attract better hires through well-written job descriptions, ad placement, process, etc. . .

Today, the responsibility for breaking through falls with the job seeker -- who must edit their resume to highlight the skills and keywords in the job description, and mine contacts to get a personal introduction when possible. Hang in there.

In a poll Nexxt conducted last week, 49% of job seekers said they would be willing to work on Thanksgiving. Will you be spending Thanksgiving with any of these job seekers? If so, keep in mind that they may put on a positive face even if their thoughts are elsewhere. Continue reading
