NotJobs: "Well, if I can’t find anything better…"

Brett Nordquist has an article about a recent encounter at a career fair:

About an hour into the fair, a man approached my booth and we chatted for a few minutes. Before he left he picked up one of my business cards and said:

Well, if I can’t find anything better, I’ll give you a call and see if we can work something out.

That’s always the best way to show commitment to your potential employer.

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."
