Now For Some Good News. (Julia Walton)

It’s frequently been pointed out that many of the most successful businesses in existence were started up during economic downturns. It sounds a paradox until you get thinking about labour,  rent, and other resources being cheaper. And of course the poor calibre companies in any sector are more likely to be going out of business, leaving those who genuinely add value to clean up.

With the long awaited news that, finally, we just might be coming out of recession, if you are one of the out-of-work-professionals thinking of setting up on your own perhaps  you had better get a move on!

Impressing The Daleks. (Julia Walton)

I sometimes think there are some trained monkeys out there writing CVs (oh, the stories I could tell) but, word is, now robots are going to be reading them. The latest news is that human contact is to be reduced during the recruitment process with intelligent software reading CVs and robots conducting interviews.

I am picturing telling one of my candidates how to prepare for an interview with a dalek. Will I get to talk to the robot myself, what will he/she/it be like? Hmm, we’ll see.

Defeat, rejection, losing. (Stuart Brill)

Fascinating article from the BBC on how athletes should manage their emotions before they compete in order to make the result easier to come to terms. The same is true from the perspective of a job-hunter, for instance I was always taught in a sporting context to always to visualise winning and never losing (it didn’t work). Yet as the BBC article, and common sense, suggests this isn’t viable for most job hunters. The message is therefore: commit to achieving what you want, in whatever environment, but realism and good planning can make the outcome a little easier to manage.
