Find the Perfect Job, One Rose at a Time



The beginning of the week is hard, but despite the post weekend blues and the procrastination from the prior week catching up with me, I push through to get to Monday night.   Even though I should probably be grocery shopping, cleaning my apartment, doing laundry and catching up on some much needed sleep, I find myself completely ignoring everything and plopping myself down on the couch to watch ABC’s The Bachelor, my ultimate guilty pleasure.

Are you getting enough sleep?  According to the CDC more than a third of Americans receive less than seven hours of sleep per night.  As a result, many are having trouble concentrating, remembering, and even driving.  I will admit, I have had these troubles from time to time and know, firsthand, that it can affect personality, work performance, energy levels, and even eating habits.  There are a few foolproof ways to gain more sleep and give yourself the recharge you deserve.

#WordCrimes Have Been Committed

6 Tips For Men...Dress For Success


men's interview attireDeciding what to wear for a job interview can be a very stressful ordeal.  I remember the day before my first professional interview looking for something to wear, tearing through my closet, my brother's closet, and my father's closet.  I could hear my dad yelling in the background "you don't want to be overdressed but you also don’t want to be underdressed" which really didn’t help me what-so-ever (sorry Dad).  Although he didn’t do a good job getting his point across, he had a very good argument.  Your outfit for a job interview can be the difference between landing a second interview for the job or never hearing back from the company again.

What should you wear to a job interview?  I have compiled some crucial Dos and Don’ts to make sure you're outfit won't keep you from getting that new job!

Before joining JOHNLEONARD, I worked in recruitment for a call center.  My job was to train and supervise groups of temporary employees.  These temporary employees were brought on to work on specific campaigns.  In the end, the HR Manager would always go with the cheapest agency, and within one year, we ended up going through three of the “cheapest” agencies in our area.

Those who use video interviews and like it say it delivers a better candidate experience and gives candidates who are out of town or live out of state the same consideration for a position.
