    6 Steps for Auditing Your Company’s Candidate Experience

    (Editor’s Note: Today’s post is brought to you by our friends at iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions. The iCIMS Hire Expectations Institute just released a new research ebook, “Why Would I Want to Work for You?”, offering employers advice on how to attract the best talent. You can download a copy here. Enjoy the post.) A positive candidate experience provides organizations with a competitive advantage in two ways. First, from a revenue perspective. The last thing any company wants is to say “no” to a candidate and lose a customer. The business world is way too competitive to lose a customer over a negative hiring experience. Second is competitive advantage in terms of the War for Talent.…

    22 Quotes By Richard Branson That Take You Inside The Mind Of The Self-Made Billionaire

    When Richard Branson was 16, he started a magazine called "Student." Six years later, he opened up a recording studio. The company's first song — a track called "Tubular Bells" by Mike Oldfield — stayed on the U.K. charts for 247 weeks.  The Virgin empire had begun. Now at 64, Branson is equal parts man, myth, and legend. His Virgin Group is composed of 400 companies, employs 60,000 people, and operates in more than 30 countries. He has an estimated net worth of $5 billion. Branson also has a flair for the dramatic. He's crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a hot air balloon and kite-surfed across the English Channel. To gain an understanding of the adventurous, wildly successful entrepreneur, we combed through his talks, interviews, and…

    How To Stop Negative Self Talk

    When’s the last time you tuned into the self talk running in the background of your thoughts? The one that’s telling you that you’re great – or not? It can feel like an impossible thing to try to reprogram that voice, but you can and unless you’re constantly telling yourself you’re awesome, you should! Great insight from Andria on this topic! – InPower Editors Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of negative head chatter; not only in my own head but also in the heads of my clients. They have shared some self-deprecating things they’ve been saying to themselves and I, too, have been aware of my own self-directed negativity.

    How to Chuck In Your Job and Move to Thailand

    I have never been one of these gung-ho change your life kind of people until, that was, I chucked in my job, gave away my car and moved to the other side of the world with my wife and two young children. The bizarre irony is that I have worked all my life, as a counsellor and teacher helping other people change their lives. It was time to put my money where my mouth was. At the age of forty two, with a comfortable middle class life, nice safe job teaching at a university and running a private counselling practice, things were just fine…kind of. I had always dreamed of being one of those people you hear about who just up sticks…

    Why This Startup Cofounder Is Only Looking To Hire 'Experts' In Their Field

    For one startup CEO, finding a niche is the key to success in both business and hiring. Tim Weingarten is a cofounder and CEO of The Hunt, which lets users to post pictures of items they want to purchase but can't find, and receive help from its online community. In an interview with Skiddy von Stade, founder of finance career site OneWire, Weingarten said he looks for hires who are both experts in their fields and good culture fits for the company. "What you really need is someone who is not only an expert in their field, say they're an amazing Objective C engineer. Objective C is the language you use for iOS, for iPhone applications. Maybe they're an amazing engineer, but…

    Pursuing a dream is easier than you think

    A few weeks ago, I took my daughter to her college orientation. One young woman excitedly told me that she was going to learn a few languages and work in an embassy. Of course, she also plans to do some studying abroad and do an internship at a global corporation. I remember having that same enthusiasm in college for all that was ahead. While I love the career I chose as a writer, and I love being a mom, there are dreams I had planned to pursue by now that just haven't panned out. Has that happened to you? For example, I wanted to learn Spanish. I have always fantasized about taking an immersion course and then traveling to Spain or conducting an…

    5 Tricks To Instantly Appear Competent

    First impressions form in a matter of seconds, making it extremely important to show your best self from the get-go, especially in professional situations.  Several unconscious signals you send — from how fast you speak to what you're wearing — can reveal clues to your intelligence and competence levels, according to a recent blog post from Research Digest. If you know what these signals are, you can gain the upper hand in any initial meeting. Research Digest compiled several studies on the psychology of first impressions, and we've highlighted five of the best ways to instantly appear competent: Make eye contact.  When you first meet someone, always look them in the eye.

    Here’s How Long New Employees Should Wait Before Taking A Vacation

    You just started a new job, so taking a vacation at any point in the near future is completely out of the question, right? Well, not necessarily. Of course it would look bad to take time off immediately after starting. But you also don't need to wait forever.   "People typically feel that asking for vacation time before they have mastered their new position may have an adverse effect on the next performance review," says Teri Hockett, chief executive of What's For Work?, a career site for women. But new employees usually wait way longer than they need to before taking their first vacation. So exactly how long should you wait before taking time off from your new job? That'll depend on your specific role, your employer, and…

    Here's Why You Get Your Best Ideas In The Shower

    You're innocently shampooing your scalp when — bam! — an unforeseen solution pops into your head. Psychologists have a name for that soapy eureka: incubation. In the same way that an embryo incubates in an egg before becoming a full-fledged chick or a virus incubates in your body before becoming a full-blown disease, thoughts incubate in the back of your mind before popping into your awareness as fully formed ideas. But this process doesn't seem to happen while we're actively concentrating on trying to find a solution. Instead, you need some element of distraction to properly incubate.   One example, care of a Quartz report: A study done by Dutch researchers Ap Dijksterhuis and Teun Meurs asked participants to invent new pasta names, after being prompted with five examples…

    8 Jobs That Can Make You Happy AND Rich

    Most people believe "a happy career" and "a fat paycheck" are mutually exclusive — but online jobs community CareerBliss.com recently found that these two things sometimes do go hand in hand.  CareerBliss compiled its new list of jobs that can make you happy and rich by analyzing more than 50,000 independent company reviews from 2013 and 2014. The reviews are from employees all over the U.S. who evaluated 10 factors that affect work happiness — one's relationship with their boss and coworkers; workplace environment; job resources; compensation; growth opportunities; company culture; company reputation; daily tasks; and job control over the work performed on a daily basis — on a five-point scale. CareerBliss combined those numbers to find an average rating of overall happiness…

    Looking for a job: market yourself first, your resume second

    Bill Holland, a Michigan State University graduate, and subject matter expert on the current state of the job market shares his thoughts. A lot has been written about personal branding. In the abstract, much of it appears to be spot on because: • Individual workers are increasingly viewed as free agents (independent contractors) that have to move from one employer to the next. Enlisting the support of a well- honed personal brand is helpful. • We are nearly through our second consecutive jobless recovery. As the economy grows there may not be enough good jobs to go around and many will be forced into occupational downgrades that pay less than what was previously earned. There will be winners and losers. And the winners…

    Business Insider is expanding in the U.K.! We're opening a newsroom in London this summer, with a focus on finance, tech, and politics.

    Why New College Grads Shouldn't Work from Home

    Telecommuting is the future.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that about a quarter of employed Americans work from home some hours each week.  In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, 63 percent of employers said they allowed employees to work remotely in 2012, up from 34 percent in 2005.  Even Marissa Mayer, the new Yahoo! CEO who banished telecommuting from company policy last year, can’t stop this train. Given the pervasiveness of the trend, in the new edition of my book for entry-level hires, They Don’t Teach Corporate in College, I added a section on telecommuting.  I recommend that twenty-something employees who want to telecommute talk with HR and/or read their orientation materials to understand how…

Workplace Drama: 10 Reasons You Aren’t Getting Ahead

0

One of the biggest things that professionals are often blinded by are actions that lead to workplace drama. Workplace drama is typically so heavily frowned upon by management that even a high-performer, who might be labeled as a “troublemaker,” will often be one of the first fired during downsizing or organizational realignment.

While I think you should try your best to avoid drama, it’s almost impossible to totally prevent it. Therefore, you must effectively manage your emotions and actions. Your ability to recognize and effectively navigate workplace drama is something that will add value to your career.

Here are 10 self-defeating workplace behaviors that can lead to drama, and actions you can take to combat these personality or interpersonal flaws…
