Age 5: Your First Career Mistake

Age 5: Your First Career Mistake | International Career | Scoop.it
Watch this video and learn why you need to go back to being a kid if you want to find real career happiness!
Anne Egros's insight:

What did you answer when you was a kid to this question : What do you want to be when your grow up ?

 

Most of the time your answer was to please and impress the adults that counted most in your life.

 

As adults, chances are high that we pursue a career to impress others. Not because we truly follow our passions.

 

Pause and think about it and be honest with yourself :  what do you want to say when someone ask the question : What do you do ?

 

Is this really what you love to do ?

 

Are you living someone else dream ?

 

Who do you want to impress or please as an adult ? Your boss, spouse, friends, etc?

 

Watch the video and think about what will be your life if you could get the  career you really like ? It is never too late for a career change.

How to Use Social Media in Recruitment and Hiring | Workology

How to Use Social Media in Recruitment and Hiring | Workology | International Career | Scoop.it
Social media, in my opinion, is the most misunderstood, popular tool, and candidate resource used by recruiters to date.
Anne Egros's insight:

Using social media for recruiting is now part of the head hunting and recruiting process. 

 

Traditional resume mining is often automated using LinkedIn and other resume storage communities like Monster or CareerBuilder, but the true sourcers go beyond the standard online search and truly engage the prospective employees by leveraging social media to identify, contribute and create online communities.
