Comments02/12/2016 #11 Renée Cormier 🐝I always love your live buzzes, @Andrew Goldman. You are right about hiring for temperament and attitude over experience. Intellectually, many HR people know this secret, but most are too lazy or pressed for time to actually filter out candidates by speaking to them. A lot of resumes get passed over because they don't look relevant.02/12/2016 #5 Paul BurgeYes, it's not just about being physically present in your job, it's about being mentally and emotionally present. That way you can only be connected to the future...Also, someone who is always willing to learn more will always go further than someone who wants to stay stuck in their rut. Thanks for sharing @Andrew Goldman!!

Comments02/12/2016 #9 Randy Keho#3 When I was just out of graduate school, I blindly accepted a position as the public relations officer for a prestigious medical school. I thought I was on my way.
Turns out I was the runner-up for the position. The winner only lasted a few months before running as far away as possible.
The director, my boss, thought she knew everything.
I should have realized something was a miss when I saw a three-ring binder on the shelf behind her desk that read "Public Relations Made Easy."02/12/2016 #8 Campbell PriceGreat share on a very important topic. I consider bad culture in a company to be a reflection of poor or weak leadership. The same leaders are so blind to their own failings, that they are genuinely surprised that the culture is toxic enough that even they recognize it. Good luck getting HR to do anything about it.02/12/2016 #7 Mohammed SultanJohn White,MPA .You have left nothing unsaid on your article.Sometimes candidates become unable to pick up any of these signals or ignore them because they think of the the pay check!.As marketers,we always know about toxic cultures from the way they treat their customers.So,my advice to new candidates who might not able to know whether there's a synergy between their career objectives and the employer objectives or whether the employer has credibility or not ,to go to the market to pick up such signals or find that synergy between the employer and their customers.Toxic companies are reflections of toxic bosses who often give you marching orders that will put you on middle grounds, because they usually have opposing ideas that can take you in different directions..You can't easily pick up such a signal during the selection process, but when you go to the market and listen to some of their customers ,you may find that such an employer are often telling lies; when they find themselves unable to justify their actions or their actions have become no more consistent with their promises to their customers.When such an employer find that their initiatives and their identity are no more consistent ,they lose integrity and begin to compromise or turn around the standard they have set for themselves.02/12/2016 #5 Lisa GallagherThanks for tagging me @John White, MBA (for some reason I can't tag you tonight), I tried to tag you in another post about an hour ago. Your name doesn't come up in my drop down box no matter how I try to type it.
Ok, back to the article- Excellent! You have a good memory about my experience with a toxic boss. I have to admit, she was so fake and I never picked up on that although, in hindsight, I should have. I think it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.
You touched on every symptom many feel when working for a toxic boss, including myself. I would get such bad stomach pains before work sometimes I'd have to call and make up a lie as to why I would be a few minutes late. I also should have left as soon as she began talking about other employees while pumping her own ego not long after I began. You nailed it with this article!

Comments28/11/2016 #5 Robin BartonI was a new employee and I asked the most experienced person for help with something I hadn't done yet on the job. She said "it's not in my job description" even though she knew the answer. A few weeks later I saw her doing tasks "not in her job description" because the boss had asked her to do it. Needless to say, my respect for her as a co worker was never the same in my mind. I never asked her for help again either.27/11/2016 #1 Pamela L. WilliamsI am so with you Jennifer! I would want to explode every time I heard: It's not my job. Like you I have 'done it all' and for that I have vast experience in many industries. People ask me HOW I know how to do something; well it's because I never said "that's not my job". It's amazing how much I have learned by doing things that were not in the job description.

Comments23/11/2016 #6 Deb Helfrich 🐝#5 Slowly, but surely this recruitment situation will have to change because it is just simply too dehumanizing. You've made a good move into entrepreneurship, @Camille Mari, but some of the same challenges exist in that arena.
Ultimately, I think a site like beBee where people are building trust through deeper relationships is a key to making the search for work, whether as an employee or business owner, a process that focuses more on the ability of someone to do something new, rather than just their capability to mimic what they've done in the past. That is where the disconnect lies.23/11/2016 #3 Graham Edwards 🐝I think "So, cry, because you'll cry, but remember that for someone, somewhere in the right company you'll be AWESOME !

Comments14/11/2016 #1 Jared Wiese 🐝My favorite parts, Lynda:
"Focus on what fits. Don't tailor yourself to fit jobs.
...be certain that your resume represents who you are and what you do.
...When reviewing potential positions to apply for, find openings for which your value proposition will resonate with the employer.
In other words, let your resume showcase your authentic self."
Oh so true. I say this from experience. I tailored and was "just looking for a job". No success. Surprise!? Nope.
Follow this great advice instead.
