I’m going out on a limb here, intending to offer some advice that I haven’t seen on any other recruiting blogs. This comes directly from a customer service issue that chewed up several hours of my working time this afternoon. it is a problem that happens more frequently than imagined.

While I did not offer it directly to the candidate in question, my NotJobs advice of the day is:

When applying for a job,

it is a good idea

to correctly spell

your own name.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
