    Catching up on my reading...nice article @Michael Hillebrand - and forward thinking quote by @Matt Sweetwood "So the number one goal is to drive users. But you don’t drive users just by getting people to sign up. We want to drive interaction. And because you want to drive interaction, you gotta have meaningful content in there." Content relevance...Honey in the Hive.

    Another great one @Michael Hillebrand. It was interesting seeing Matt's vision for beBee U.S. and realizing that the growth is dependent on all the Bees. We need to provide a product that draws others to the site; interesting, relative, content that intrigues, entertains, teaches, or just connects with people in different ways. There is no set formula for the content on beBee, we are creating the formula, and it will call for diverse content that can reach diverse users from all walks of life.

    @MattSweetwood makes a strong case for beBee and he is right. I believe that beBee has a great potential for building one's unique brand. We live in an amazing world where out of necessity we have developed multi-pronged talents. One can be an international trader and at the same time have an interest for technology. beBee provides this capability and is well in position to disrupt LinkedIn.

    Thanks for another awesome interview @Michael Hillebrand. I think selecting @Matt Sweetwood as President & CEO of beBee USA is an absolutely excellent choice -- or, as Matt might say in photography -- "Picture Perfect!" Moreover, the tremendous impact that @John White, MBA has had in creating buzz about beBee and helping to shape the team in the USA goes beyond mere words. Kudos to you, Matt and John for all of your spectacular work! cc: @Javier beBee @Juan Imaz

    Are You Living to Become Legendary? Last week I took my 18 year-old son to his freshman college orientation.From the moment we drove onto the well-manicured and maintained campus, there were welcome banners waving as we parked in an already full parking lot—and we were even 20 minutes...

    That sounds like a really good school for any child to be in @Kristi Latimer. I'm looking forward to my own son's admission into a foreign university that's 8000 miles away from home. I don't know what to expect. Reading the website I gather the vibes are good. But that cannot replace the assurance that one gets by actually experiencing what the university vouches for. Thank you for sharing this great buzz. I wish your son the very best in his studies.

    @Kristi Latimer, most importantly congratulations on reaching this milestone with your son. There are certain days as a parent when the sun seems destined not to disappear. Yet, here you sit with your first-born in college. Soon enough, you'll be writing about your son, the college graduate.

    My biggest takeaway was eloquently stated in one paragraph:

    "THIS is what we, as educators, must do each and every single day—not just at the beginning of the year, in pep rallies, assemblies, or to be politically correct. We must have campuses that are fulfilling to the mind, body, soul, and where they go away feeling a sense of purpose and accomplishment at the end of each day, month, and year."

    Having slogans, taglines or catch phrases serve as hollow identifiers unless they are faithfully woven into one's daily culture. Thank you for sharing a personal experience that serves as an excellent reminder on many levels.

    @Aaron Skogen & @Michael Hillebrand, what a great interview! I enjoyed reading about your experience in Japan Aaron! I bet your new bride was shocked when she saw your new 'doo!' Actually, I think it's becoming and I like it! Before I forget, what a great family photo! You and your bride were young just like my husband and myself when we met then married. It's a real journey, isn't it Aaron? The best part about the journey for me has been growing and maturing together, how about you? I wonder if growing up in what I'd classify as a middle income family gave you that much more understanding, respect and empathy for those you work with today? I truly believe that shaped my experiences too. Awesome to hear you take time just for you and unwind by riding your bike and playing the guitar! Your well rounded Aaron and I have to tell you, you're very approachable too. I'm so happy we got a deeper glimpse into your life thanks to Michael's interview and your analogy with the marble, priceless! I'm happy we met on Linkedin and have carried that friendship over onto beBee, my favorite platform!

    Incredibly Basic Interview Advice #1
    Incredibly Basic Interview Advice #1I had a candidate turn up half an hour late for interview recently, stuck in roadworks, which I subsequently found had been going on for a couple of weeks. Don't do this; unless you know the route and traffic flow very, very well, plan how you are...

    Great advice Richard. When interviewing for a job I always drive there beforehand to make sure I won't get lost and scope out any traffic issues. It's just common sense but I suspect many people don't think of that.

    #2 This buzz resonates with me too and that’s why I shared it.  However I wouldn’t abstain from recruiting an individual based on these factors “ Failure to make eye contact, bad posture, fidgeting basically anything that shows me he/she is too timid or must have had a bad experience in the last interview or job” as long as he/she has the talent and the skills( Voice and technical) required for the job and will thrive in the given work environment, I would put him through and highlight the various areas they need to work on if they want to get the job. But the problem was , the management I used to work for weren’t happy with this and wanted all factors to be considered while interviewing a candidate , but I am proud to say I have recruited such candidates who have proved them all wrong and moved to higher positions in the company.
    These habit can always be fine tuned once we highlight its relevance to the job. But if the candidate does not have the right attitude which we can also figure out during an interview he is going to be a lost cause

    #13 Thanks @Navinya Lee, I think that STAR model sounds like a great one. For me personally, after learning more strategies and practicing, I'd say three of the most effective concepts I learned in interviewing were - 1) Only interview with companies and potential employers who you feel aligned with - their mission, values, and overall "feeling:" you get about them. This is a tricky one, because it took me a LONG time of sifting through and interviewing with tons of companies before I could "pick up" on these things beforehand. 2) Turning the interview into s "conversation." 3) When applicable, speaking in such a way that conveys and expresses an honest assessment of how your own experience, strengths, passions, and talent can benefit the organization, AND also why you feel their organization is a great fit for you to flourish and excel in. This was also, for me, an art form, and skill I had to practice A LOT to develop :)

    I have two C suite interviews today, i am a ball of nerves....if they both say yes. One puts me in Africa, the other in Dubai. Both have been on going conversations for projects i have already created for them....it will be a crazy day, I am looking for success, but I am not ready to choose between them yet.

    Great advice @Scott Engler. Always good to have an ice-breaker up your sleeve. Even if you can't find anything on your interviewer before-hand, you can still research something that might be an ice-breaker (news about the company, their competitors, current affairs).

    LinkedIn is doing everything possible to squash everything that smell to superconnector as they want premium members, They could hundreds of millions subscribers @1 USD a month, which could translate if 400 M sign up to over 4 B a year. They cannot get rid of us yet. Another things is the quality of the site and its inability to cover a wider audience without deteriorating its brand..

    - This is one thing I have noticed on LinkedIn, that they seem to pick & choose whom they want to high light. & since @Candice Galek 🐝 has been dealing with this for sometime & understands this issue better than most. She continues to make her points. I don't see her as to demanding, I think she would just like a fair & balanced playing field. & I think everyone of social media who has a business would like that same.

    @Candice Galek 🐝, I am not interested in a job, but, I have been boycotting Pulse on my own for some time. I am one of your connections that see your updates in my feed on LinkedIn consistently. In that respect, I am lucky. After I transfer some things I will be putting LinkedIn in the Trash folder. I know you seen a surge in business due to some things you posted on LinkedIn, and the article that followed on Forbes by @Cheryl Snapp Conner, which is where we first connected through a comment, in which I informed you about beBee. I am glad that you have become more active on beBee. I guess I view it as a positive side-effect of LinkedIn's mis-steps. I do not know if posting on beBee will be an asset towards your business, or not, but, for me beBee is the future and LinkedIn will soon be the past.

    Even if you maintain a presence on, and connection with LinkedIn, I recommend to all to pick an item in your feed, click in the upper right hand corner to secure the drop down menu that enables you to silence that particular update, click silence and then confirm. You will be rewarded with the question "Improve My Feed?". Click on it, and you will see an options page as to what you want to follow in your feed. UNclick "Pulse" from its default plus setting, and, voila, YOU ARE BOYCOTTING PULSE. A bonus is that you will start to see some, though far from all, of the posts from people you follow, and would like to see. Your fate is now in your hands. Cheers!

    Hi Job Seekers! I just wanted to share this with those of you who may be "rounding third" as you get the job you want.

    I usually take on clients at the "beginning" stages of the career process, in the last few months I've been seeing a lot of success with people that I've worked with AS they already where at the point where they had either one, or several important interviews....I agreed to help them prep through mock interviews and salary negotiation prep.....

    Knock on wood, but since March, I've been 3 for 3 when I decided to start working with people at this final stage!

    I recently decided that it would be a huge disservice NOT to offer this to folks in this final stage as a provided service, as we all know there is a high level of competition for positions out there, so if i can use my own skills and experience to help people successfully land the job they wanted AND even negotiate a higher salary, then that's what I will begin doing more of!

    I've worked out an arrangement for length of time and such that has been seen as very reasonable and attractive to clients, so if you're rounding third and want to make sure you land the job so you're frustrating days of job hunting are over, send me a private message for more details and we can get started so soon as you need (based on my availability next week, which I will do my best to work around.)

    You can schedule a time for a strategy call so we can chat and I can get a better idea of where you're at, and how i can best help you - it's based on Pacific Standard Time. https://goo.gl/K0h2ZU

    #7 @Phil Friedman, the other article was only a few days old, but I have a theory that the contributor might have felt pressured to offer up some controversial advice. In her defense, I agree that it should not be brought up at the actual interview. But if you don't already know enough about the comp before the interview, then you shouldn't even bother going.
    Phil Friedman
    11/04/2016 #7 Phil Friedman
    Great points, @Jeff Halfen. The article you cite must have been from another time, as an awful large percentage of interviews these days is preceded by asking the applicant what his or her "salary expectations are. So why should an applicant not ask the question?
    Jeff Halfen
    05/04/2016 #6 Jeff Halfen
    #5 "He who says a number first loses". Sometimes. I always make sure that I am comfortable that there won't be any (bad) surprises re comp if an offer comes. That usually means that I get them to tell me the range, or if they won't, I tell them a high range and gauge their reaction. Or sometimes a find an insider to tell me. But I never go into it blind.

    So many rules, so little time. It all depends on the company, culture and interview. Some want pay information right up front, so they are not wasting theirs or your time. I've had it happen both ways. When I tried to dodge, they tried to pin me down. Good post Jeff. Great to see you here!

    #1 Thanks @Dean Owen. Just to clarify, asking salary before the interview means BEFORE, not AT, the interview. I don't think there is anything wrong with a candidate have pre-conditions to granting an interview. Again, the idea is just to make sure that candidate and company are at least in the same ball park. Otherwise, why waste each other's time?

    Excellent article Jeff Halfen. Not sure I agree with you on candidates asking salary before the interview. I think a salary range should have been communicated in the JD, and if it wasn't, as a hirer, if someone asked me for salary details before the interview (kind of like a pre-condition to granting the interview), I would tend to think all they care about is money and as such, we might well lose them in a couple of months to a better offer. But I do agree with not wasting each other's time. Which is why I insisted on having video interview technology built in and free to use on my portal.

    #4 Any candidate will be job ready and feel the need to attend an interview after reading this book Well this books explains everything a candidate goes through before, after and during an interview. Being a coach, trainer and recruiter for more than 5 years don't be suprised when I say I simply had no clue where to start when I quit my last job. That lead me to analyze and train myself to showcase my skills in a way that others understand meaning to sell myself. I loved reading this and will share it with my candidates as I'm confident that it will add more life to the entire interview readying process. A great book Thank you @Emilia M. Ludovino

    Congratulations Fatima for your article. To “hear” and to “listen” are two different things. Just because you can hear me, doesn’t mean that you are listening. The definition of “hear” is - to perceive with the ear the sound made by (someone or something), while “listen” is defined as - give one’s attention to a sound. What you may interpret as a subtle difference between “perceive” and “attention” is a massive gulf in understanding. Simplified, this can be explained as – hearing with our ears but – listening with all our senses. And this kind of listening I call Emotional Listening or Third Level Listening. Emotional Listening or “third level listening” means, i.e. to listen to what is said between the lines. This is a skill that is practiced by coaches globally and, taught in my executive coaching programs. You explain it very well. :). Have a wonderful day!
