    #7 There is a problem Jennifer. If organizations don't strive for the best how would they be able to compete?. There must be a knowledgeable, skillful, competent, and qualified work force. I have seen in places where micro managers terminated the best and were unable to meet their quarterly fiscal obligation. This management human resources relationship or "nuptial" engagement is destroying the integrity of many companies.

    That is definitely one thought Erroll - many HR departments are challenged due to bad management. The biggest issue going on is that too many employers are treating people like a number - replacable - and not investing in treating them well enough to encourage the best employees to stay. #6
    Erroll -EL- Warner
    02/08/2016 #6 Erroll -EL- Warner
    This seem to indicate that the human resources system is broken. What is creating this bad review of human resources is their entanglement or "nuptial" engagement with management. That association will never yield the best talented workers and work force organizations need. Corporate Offices need to start paying attention to such a dilemma.

    Regarding the questions about your weaknesses, as you say, having them is ok. In order to give a good interview it is good to say a weakness, but be creative and original, in that way you will still show that you are competitive even when you are not exactly talking about your best qualities. For example: a lot of people still answer that one of their weaknesses is being a perfectionist or working too hard. Just be original and come up with a creative idea to describe how you are going to work on your weakness so it can become a strength. Great buzz @Rafi Chowdhury

    @Dean Owen - The nominal claim is that your post is distributed into the feed of your connections, but may not be seen as it is pushed down by other posts, if the connections is not online at the time or close to it. However, the reality diverges significantly from that claim more than 85% of the time, as explained in print by LI systems engineering manager Byron Ma. In fact, the Algorithm throttles down distribution based on ITS assessment of who are "strong" connections, and so distribute your posts to the feeds of less that 15% of your connections. LI rationalizes this choking down on the basis that members complain of their feeds being too jammed by posts from connections. The irony of this is that, if the purported complaints are real to any significant level (which I question), the people complaining are those who connect willy nilly or who want to connect so that they can send you solicitations and sales pitches, not receive anything from you. Thus, LI distribution protocols are being driven by the preferences of spammers. LI also claims it distributes your posts 100% to your followers, but repeated careful observation by indie writers brings that claim into serious question, as well. Which is why, as you point out, many indie writers have moved their base of operations over to beBee, where distribution to self-designated "followers" is 100%, 100% of the time. I have suggested that all social media platforms, including LI, adopt this structure for interactions among members: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@phil-friedman/time-to-break-all-connections-on-social-media. Cheers!

    #13 LinkedIn distribute your posts to only 8-15% of your followers, based on its algorithm. This will never happen on beBee. You will always reach 100% of your followers. Why ? Because we think that they will stop following you if you send spam or poor content or irrelevant content. I think it is the right way. We will never limit it.
    Dean Owen
    11/06/2016 #15 Dean Owen
    LinkedIn is an odd beast and we can only guess at their motives. I suspect they assume there is more money to be made from recruitment and sponsored ads and thus are restricting peoples ability to market freely their products. But if I understand correctly, your post does appear on everyone of your connections timeline, and obviously they will miss it if they are not on at the right time. But the decision to throttle notifications was due to complaints of too many notifications. Notifications also have a short lifespan don't they? So they disappear if you don't open them. It does seem they have increased the emailed newsletter frequency. A balancing act they are getting wrong yes, but that's why we are here!

    @Dean Owen, I understand your point. But if Netflix makes suggestions to me based on what it perceives my preferences to be, that is one thing. Because if I am not satisfied with the suggestions, I can opt to access the rest of the database. But if, for example, LinkedIn chooses to distribute my posts to only 15% of my followers, based on its algorithm which decides that the 85% remaining don't really want to see them, that is another matter. Unless, of course, you know of a switch in my settings to prevent that algorithmic filtering from occurring on my incoming notifications. ??? Control of what I can see and can see is minds
    Dean Owen
    11/06/2016 #12 Dean Owen
    #11 I get you @Phil Friedman, but recruitment, retail, social media, the discussion is the same. It is about having relevant candidates, products, content there on your screen when you log on. Certainly the whole database is still available for you to search. If I had purchased a couple of gangster movies on Flixster, and the next time I visit the site, on the front page there is the latest gangster movie, great! Doesn't stop me from also hitting other tabs and seeing what is on offer. Likewise if I have hidden some articles on Facebook, and the Facebook also decides to show me less of those type articles and more of the type I have liked, great! It is not a perfect system, but it will get better and better. We are time strapped. Algorithms offer us the option of a clutter free experience. Good discussion!

    11/06/2016 #11 Phil Friedman
    #10 @Dean Owen, thank you for reading and commenting, and for the kind words. With all due respect, however, I have to point out that the use of an algorithm by a marketer or advertiser to tailor what is offered to you based on your expressed interests is not what I am talking about. Nor am I referring to the use of an algorithm by a firm such as Home Depot to show you what is in stock in a local warehouse store near you. Consider, instead how you would feel is Google used an algorithm to decide to show you only some results of your search, not by relevance, but selected by how its judgement of your intellectual ability to understand the items. Or what if a firm like Flixster decided that it knew better what movies you would like, and so failed to show you all the movies at theaters in your area, but only those it deemed appropriate for you, never mind the search parameters you entered. The difference is between serving your expressed preferences and over-riding them based on an algorithm that, in the final analysis, is only a dumb sorting tree based on a two-value (binary) logic, which is completely inadequate to capturing the nuances of Human Intelligence and selection which operate in a multi-value logic. Cheers!
    Dean Owen
    11/06/2016 #10 Dean Owen
    Granted perhaps that the technology is not up to speed, but I am not so cynical of algorithms in our lives. Imagine that you could visit an online department store that displays products tailored according to your tastes, your size, your colour preferences. At some stage, the technology will be advanced enough to optimise our online experience by showing us content that is hugely relevant. For example, I have absolutely no interest in being marketed health and fitness products or French cars or brown clothes, or a cool pair of shoes but without my size in stock. I am sure our online experience right now is better than if Google or Facebook didn't employ algorithms.Yes sometimes they get it wrong. But at least the banner ads we see are sometimes relevant. Not a fan of current ATS, but eventually systems will be able to deduce that someone was a marine and is looking for military related jobs, and not jobs tagging sea turtles. Great article as always @Phil Friedman

    Dear @Phil Friedman, You know my attitude about algorithm in any type of social media. Writing and publishing in social networks is more like transparent teaching and completely free mutual shaping of perception (without algorithmic control), rather than highly selective promotion, self-promotion, manipulation with exposure, influencer marketing or activism of an artificial, selective, highly manipulative and dehumanized algorithm. The algorithm control will be remembered as a dark age of social media.

Witness the commitment from founders @Javier beBee and @Juan Imaz that beBee will never over-ride the wishes of its members as to what they want to see from those members and writers whom they follow, that beBee will deliver 100% of the content from writers to their respective followers 100% of the time.

    When I managed a telemarketing agency, we often needed large numbers of staff for temporary roles. There simply wasn't time or budget to gives someone 2-3 weeks to settle in, they'd need to be on target within 2-3 days. I therefore had to test their confidence and ability to cope when thrown in at the deep end.

    At interview, I'd tell them they were a waitress and I was a customer who asked for their advice on what to eat - sell me lasagne! (Bearing in mind this was for a TELESALES role, where candidates would be expected to do lead generation calls at Director level for clients like IBM and Microsoft).

    You'd be amazed at the responses from supposedly well-qualified candidates, which included: "errr I've never worked in catering." "I'm not really good at selling things" and the ultimate "I didn't think you'd ask me to sell anything, it's really hard." I didn't think it was an especially tough question, but most of them said it was the toughest question they'd ever been asked.

They make a huge nonsense of year end appraisals but don't even read them. All they seem to get passionate about is organising team building events and year end parties. They rarely do overtime. And most could not articulate concisely the company business. Yes there are exceptions, but very rare.

    People should really stop hating HR team and start noticing that sometimes some good things that happens with contract terms or development on integration activities are also because of them. Of course, there's always something to learn from each other I think it is both ways. For example HR can learn from Finance team the economical conditions of the company and try to relate it to what they do.

    This is what makes Werner Erhard so compelling a thinker - those of us who appreciate his way can think with him rather than simply read him. That is what makes us wiser, brighter, sharper and more alive at a personal level. I take time to be the rhythm, the flow and the cycle of our own life - for we are in movement just as the Earth is and how the Earth is in its own body of movement i.e the Sun, and then beyond where we don't know the movement beyond this universe. Peter Sapper thinks this is the best two minutes of Werner Erhard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIUuPscUiT8 A 2 minute serving is a nice appetizer but personally I can't eat time, but I can take time to eat. I am not here to convince people that Werner Erhard is brilliant, I know he is - but for all the brilliance in the world we human beings still need to build a power plant because we don't know how to make the Sun work - the ultimate source of this Earth's brilliance is still a source of power that defines time - until now it has been a worship of time of a Sun God, as we move forward it is an acceptance of time as a life source - and in that much brilliance is still to be discovered, and this means we are at the beginning of a this life evolution, though not at all at the end of treating time as a deity.

    The last red dress is amazing! I find this tips really helpful, some of them can also be applied on business meetings. Showing that you are a good listener in your job interview, I think it will also show your hopefully new boss that you'll listen when he asks something from you while working for him.

    The Internet of Things - Disruptor
    The Internet of Things - DisruptorI’m told that the “Internet of Things” (IoT) is the next big thing in Business/IT. It is to be the disrupter of all disrupters changing everything about how we view the generation, collection and interpretation of data…lots of data, dare I say...

    Where IoT is important isn't in your refrigerator...that is just an example put out there for the distractors. Where it is important is in industrial machines like PLCs, valves, switches, counters, scales and gauges....in order to bring real time analytics to the business to increase efficiencies. There will however be connectivity in appliances ...my washing machine already has one, (not connected) to report on maintenance and warrantee information....and to connect when it is broken to analyze the problem...just like the one in cars.

    The only thing I see the Internet of Things disrupting is everyone's lives, and not in a good way. Do we *really* need to have *everything* we own connected to the Internet? My fridge doesn't need to be. What, so it can email me when the milk's expired? I can't check the date myself? (Okay, it might have been helpful this week when I discovered an old milk carton hidden in the back. I've been putting off dumping it down the sink. If the IoT can remove my milk carton and dispose of its contents without smelling up my kitchen, then I'll listen.) I don't need my watch connected, my clothes, my glasses, or my cat. (He'd probably spend any time I'm not here downloading kitty porn.) We can't even keep our bank accounts safe from hackers, and I'm supposed to open up the rest of my life to pimply-faced virgins in eastern Europe and perpetually pissed-off terrorist Daeshbags in the Middle East? Ain't. Happenin'.

    "Emotions and interpersonal relationships, encompass more directly our values, our ideals, our identities and our ethics." Excellent point...Awareness of our emotions allows us to perceive the intentions behind them...This translates to a "conscious discrepancy" when dealing with challenging situations or interactions with others. When we are "tuned in" to the state of our being we can respond in accordance with our experiences rather than just reacting to them...Thank you for a very enlightening post Emilia M. Ludovino;-)

It;s not an easy process for a lot of them - because during the training they need to deal with buried feelings and emotions. There is more to EI. Maybe you like to discover what we Emotional Intelligence Coaches are teaching to their coachees, in my book. Grateful that you time to read my buzz and leave your opinion :). Have a blessed day!.

Awareness of others emotions it's also very important for our own sake - that's why in my book I teach how to enhance them and the importance for every "mortal" to assess and actively develop their EI skills. Thank You for your Feedback. Glad you liked.

    This 'Dark Side of Emotional Intelligence' is exactly why I find the concept disturbing. It is accepted that Command and Control management tactics are antiquated and actually limit a productive atmosphere. Have we however replace C&C with M&C; Manipulate and Coerce? Is it emotionally intelligent to utilize stone faced management tactics? Is not that lack of emotion in social interaction what Hollywood would describe as psychopathic behavior, whereas the clinical terminology is antisocial personality disorder.. According to World of Psychology these are the traits of a psychopath. Psychopaths, in general, have a hard time forming real emotional attachments with others. Instead, they form artificial, shallow relationships designed to be manipulated in a way that most benefits the psychopath. People are seen as pawns to be used to forward the psychopath’s goals. Psychopaths rarely feel guilt regarding any of their behaviors, no matter how much they hurt others.

    But psychopaths can often be seen by others as being charming and trustworthy, holding steady, normal jobs. Some even have families and seemingly-loving relationships with a partner. While they tend to be well-educated, they may also have learned a great deal on their own.

    When a psychopath engages in [this] behavior, they tend to do so in a way that minimizes risk to themselves. They will carefully plan [activity]to ensure they don’t get caught, having contingency plans in place for every possibility.

    Are we training leaders to be psychopaths? Which is actually a genetic disorder so such training is actually an environmental development of the disorder and becomes a sociopathic personality disorder. ----Just this person's opinion, but something to think about

    Well, I think that if you are already customizing something like a cover letter (or even if you don't write one) sometimes there are aspects on each person's resume that should be customized depending on the profile that the company needs. I mean, not lying of course, but making some of your qualities that fit the job more visible than others and taking out irrelevant (for that company specifically) ones.

    #54 Thank you for the heartfelt comment, Melissa. Please do not think that I personally am unhappy with everything that looks and feels like a recruiter. With this post, I tried to represent the general feeling amongst candidates rather than a personal rant. I always pick up the phone and am very interested in working with interesting people be it recruiters/headhunters and others. Because the thing is if you don't engage with people you're automatically turning opportunities or business away. The sad thing is that one recruiter who's writing I follow with LinkedIn and discuss with from to time said that she had been called a disruptor simply because she talks to people and form a connection with the candidates. It requires mutual effort to fix this but my humble opinion is that the profession of recruiters need to take the first step.

    #46 No one says people will be effective rankers whether employed or unemployed. Just like on product/company ranking sites like Yelp or Trustpilot there's no telling who the actual raters are. Even you need to sign up you can choose an unidentifiable username. The site offering the ranking naturally needs to know the identifies of the rankers as well recruiters would have to sign up to the platform rather than it being a free for all to shame all. As to incentive. Well, what incentive does anyone have to rate anything? They want the experience they've had (good or bad) to reflect on the company or in this case the recruiter.

    @Alan Geller - I agree that it does. The link to this would not work when I was on the website earlier. But that said, it is complete. Unfortunately, while I am sure that you follow these very laid out precepts, and that no doubt a number of your colleagues do as well, I am not at all sure that a significant proportion, let alone a majority of practitioners in the field do. Do you happen to know the estimated total number of perople working in the field versus those who belong to NAPS? #49
    Phil Friedman
    22/05/2016 #48 Phil Friedman
    Alan - pt II - because on many occasions I have already been directly in touch with the hiring exec or manager at the firm with the opening, either at my initiation or at theirs. For example, having a documented background in engineering management (with resume's posted previously with some recruitment firms and on LinkedIn), I'll receive a call about an engineering position from a supposedly "professional" recruiter, who it is clear doesn't have a clue about the difference between a structural engineer, electrical engineer, or industrial engineer, but who is willing to waste my time and energy in an "interview" that is 100% going nowhere. If someone said to me that many practitioners in my area of specialization (marine industry operations consulting) were less that competent and ethical, I would respond, and have responded simply by saying yes and that is why it is so important to deal only with practitioners who have documented bona fides and experience, and why professional references are so important. I would not accuse that person of inferring from one or a few bad apples that the entire barrel was bad. For if it were just a few bad apples involved, the question would never come up. And nowhere in anything that I said is there the implication that the entire recruiting barrel is bad. Only that lack of professionalism and ethics is sufficiently widespread, that extreme caution and due diligence are always in order. Cheers!
    Phil Friedman
    22/05/2016 #47 Phil Friedman
    Alan, the generalization is NOT that every recruiter is incompetent or dishonest, but rather that less-than-ethical behavior, lack of genuine training and experience, and lack of competence are rampant in the field of recruiting. That perhaps this is not more so than in any non-regulated field of endeavor (nor, for that matter, in many supposedly regulated professions and businesses) does not mean that the generalization is not true. At your urging, I have perused the NAPS website, and although I find a lot of attention to explaining how NAPS functions to "... represent our profession in critical legislative arenas in Washington, DC, provide legislative guidance and aid in states where government affairs challenges exist...", I find only a passing reference to the promulgation of professional ethics and standards. And indeed the link given for the latter appears broken. I personally find it telling that the lobbying function of NAPS is stated first and foremost, and that the website does not have a prominent mission statement concerning a code of ethics and professional conduct to which all member subscribe, albeit voluntarily. So for me, the existence of NAPS does not change my interpretation of the facts. Beyond that, I should mention that my conclusions about the recruiting industry as a whole are not pulled out of thin air. Although, I have not over the past couple of decades looked for a "job", I do mine relevant job listings and interface regularly interface with recruiters in the service of seeking consulting work in my field(s) of specialization. Beyond that, because I have in the past registered with some recruiting firms, and because I have a detailed profile on LinkedIn, I will from time to time receive a query from a "recruiter". Usually, these are a total waste of time because the recruiter calling me doesn't understand my resume or doesn't understand the job opening he or she is trying to fill. In the marine industry, I can tell this is the case

    Totally agree. Recruitment process is broken.
    I may not be the best fit for this position, but I maybe the perfect for tomorrow one's, but if the recruiter didn't give me any feedback about the last process I don't want to work with him never again.
    Moreover many times they are not doing their work, e.g. somebody contacts me by Linkedin for a position that doesn't fit at all to me, they didn't even read my CV!!!! Or even worst, they mistake my name in the email!!!!
    And I hate when they ask me to fill their forms with the information that it is already in my CV, sorry, it is not my task, you can do it...
    I am not their customer, but if I am hired they will be paid, so I should be at least a little important for them. They should give me a little feedback (it only takes a few minutes to write a personalized e-mail), and they should answer the questions that I have about the job, company, etc. and if they don't have the answers they should take the time to find out

    Excellent advice Kristina. I could add several more, including; 1. Actually send out a notification. 2. Don't play the 'we're looking for a position that would be a good fit for you". Being in a pile of resume's and getting once a week calls just to 'check in' is wasting the candidates time. I've had some recruiters do this for months. I don't want to be rude or burn bridges so I keep taking the calls but in my opinion it's unprofessional and to some that may be desperately looking; cruel. What I want to say to them is; 'deliver' or 'leave me alone otherwise you're going to get a bill for my time'. 3. Take jobs off the internet if they are filled.Taking all that time to fill in that information only to get to the end and get a message; "This position has been filled, please check back for other opportunities". I want to call the company tell them to keep their sites updated, because someone isn't doing their job, then I want to send them a bill too! :-). Candidates are customizing resumes and cover letters for a particular position, then filling in all that information. This takes time, sometimes a lot depending on the complexity of the job. Why shouldn't a candidate be able to bill the company for wasting the candidates time?
