The Secret to Becoming the Person You Want to Be

The Secret to Becoming the Person You Want to Be | Job Development | Scoop.it
There is no harder task for adults than changing our behavior.For many of us, change is impossible because we are so optimistic (and delusional) that we try to change everything at once. We quickly overwhelm ourselves with becoming the “new Me”, and when it doesn’t happen as quickly as we’d like, people don’t notice that we’ve made a change, or some obstacle presents itself, we give up.Discouraged by our failure, overwhelmed and disheartened, it’s hard to commit to change again. So, we become geniuses at coming up with reasons to avoid change. We make

New Entelo Study Shows When Employees are Likely to Leave Their Jobs

New Entelo Study Shows When Employees are Likely to Leave Their Jobs | Job Development | Scoop.it

Over the last few years we’ve had the privilege of talking to thousands of recruiters about how they do their jobs.
For the increasing number of them who are trying to source hard-to-fill roles (e.g., engineering, design, data science, highly skilled sales and marketing, etc.), a key question to answer is “When are people most likely to leave their current employer?”
After all, if you know that people were statistically much more likely to leave at a certain point, you could optimize your outreach accordingly.

Hrl Higgins Rec's curator insight, April 17, 2015 10:35 AM

The recruitment market has changed since we used to send off our CV with a cover letter, to explain the reasons as to why we should be considered for the position.

I would spend more time on your CV to make sure it reflects your abilities and skills that are relevant to that job. Here are some hints and tips on how to focus on what is important.
