The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary” – Donald Kendall

I get a lot of email suggesting websites to review, articles links to post and apps to review. I save most of these suggestions and then periodically dedicate a post to reviewing and listing the links. So, not much to say in today’s post other than I hope you enjoy the following job search resources.

  • Job-Applications.com – This site is an online job application resource site. There are a bunch of companies featured mid page. Clicking any of these leads to a detailed page on the company, along with links to complete an application. On the left hand side of the site is a listing of job categories. Click on these and you will see a list of companies (with associated links) for that particular job category. This site can save lots of time for you, take a look.

Starting at the Bottom, Working for the Best

Winning isn’t everything. Wanting to is.” – Elbert Green Hubbard

Do you remember your very first job? Not the one where you worked in the supermarket, but the first job that you felt it was the beginning of your career. I remember my “first job”. This was the first job where I had to wear a suit, travel to the city and work in an office. I was really pumped. A few days into the job in my first late night, my boss’s boss calls me into a big meeting with all of the big wigs. They needed my help (imagine!). So, on my way to get six coffees for these guys (in the pouring rain) I got my first lesson in what it means to “add value” and where I fit in the food chain. Whatever your first job and wherever you fit into your company, take aim at some of the best companies to work for.

  • SAS – Number 1 on the list two years in a row (their 14th year on the list) . The career page provides a brief overview of the company followed with a worldwide career search function by region.

“To those of you who received honors, awards and distinctions, I say well done. And to the C students, I say you too may one day be president of the United States.” – George W. Bush

It happens to most of us. Grade school, High School and College. We spend 4 years (except for those on the “5 year plan”) learning (and partying) and then the “big day” is here – Graduation! And then, as if overnight, we are faced with the hard, ugly facts of life (therefore the ugly bird picture today) – we now have to find a job. Those days of living off of our parents’ dime are over. We need to fend for ourselves. There is a word for that – UGH. Okay, not to worry. This is the beginning of an adventure. Hold on, because here we go.

  • The 20 Essential TED Talks for New GradsThis is the perfect article for the new college grad. A bunch of great links.

Job Search from the Beginning – Recruiters Part 2

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

I was in the Mall the other day for some Holiday shopping and it was packed. Finding a parking spot was almost like bumper cars at the arcade and walking through the Mall and stores was like a modern day version of “survival of the fittest”. So I started thinking about what “Malls” (or marketplaces) were like hundreds of years ago, where merchants got together to sell whatever they made or grew to those who needed it. Barter was popular and money was not always needed. The real purpose of the marketplace was to create a central location where people could match “wants” with “needs”. Recruiters play similar roles. They match those looking for jobs with those looking to hire. They also do some due diligence on the candidates to ensure a better match. On to today’s marketplace.
