It is alarming to still hear the challenges that many individuals have once recruited into an organization that describes themselves as providing “flexibility”. In working with professionals of all ages and all organizational levels, it is still evident that many organizations spruik this right during the attraction phase, but once reality hits, clearly do not have an environment that supports flexible work arrangements.

I was at the bank with my son the other day and it got me thinking. Each day I put any spare change into a jar in the kitchen that we refer to as “The Sam Fund.” Every penny gets put into his savings account, along with any money he earns, finds or receives as a gift. When the jar gets filled (or my 12-year-old can’t restrain himself), we head off to the coin counter at the bank.

I’ll be honest, it’s been a while since I attended a recruiting event as a candidate. But I still vividly remember what I hated about those events.
Here’s the short list:
- Walking into the expo hall and not knowing where the heck to go, who to talk to, or what each employer was looking for. I was a journalism major, so I was rarely high on anyone’s list and the brands everyone knew were always crowded.

Two decades ago, businesses did not give a hoot about what went on online. Much to their surprise, they needed an online presence shortly afterward. After a few more years, a mere online presence ceased to do the trick. The time had come for outstanding content, and the popular online “household” phrase ‘content is king’ emerged.
Today, the online space is characterized by cutthroat competition that compels businesses to look beyond content to get to professional writers, who in addition to authoring the content can provide value-added services such as developing a killer content strategy that attracts traffic and converts them into customers.

Facebook is one of the world’s most visited websites and easily the most popular social network. That means there is a big company operating behind the scenes, made up of talented people like CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Jobs at Facebook are some of the most sought after in Silicon Valley and the overall technology industry. With so many candidates to consider, the company has to take a smart approach to identifying the right people for every job it hires for.
The era of social media has created a new conundrum for job seekers, employers, and recruiters alike. On the one hand, it’s easier than ever before to apply to a job. On the other hand, the ease of applying has inflated the number of applications almost any job posting receives.
Employers and recruiters are now sorting through dozens of applications for almost every job they post. This complicates the already complex process of trying to find the right people for the job.
