What a Recruiter Is Really Looking for When They Meet You

What a Recruiter Is Really Looking for When They Meet You
A great suit? A strong handshake? What is a recruiter really looking for when they meet you?

What they’re looking for is you. Not the ‘you’ in your CV but the other one. The one with motivations, successes, strengths, weaknesses. The real you.

 
 
 

Disruption in the 2016 Talent Market: Are Businesses Prepared?

Disruption in the 2016 Talent Market: Are Businesses Prepared?
If you want to know the key to finding and keeping the best people in 2016, you’d do well to start by getting comfortable with this one word: disruption.

This one word will influence and steer much of the 2016 workplace and its talent, and in more ways than one.

For a start, new Hudson data has the talent year ahead shaping up as one of the most mobile and fluid in recent times.

 
 
 

Is It Time for a Career Change?

Is It Time for a Career Change?
Are you feeling bored, burnt out or just indifferent to the job you’re currently in? A complete career change may well be the answer to your work blues.

In my line of work, people often ask me whether it’s possible to make a career change. The answer, of course, is yes – but the key is knowing where to start and how to get there – smartly.

 
 
 

7 steps to hiring success

7 steps to hiring success
To hire right in 2015 managers must look beyond active job seekers and standard advertising practices towards far smarter sourcing strategies.

In a perfect world, hiring well would be a static skill, where techniques that found you the perfect hire last year would work just as well today. But that’s not the case in 2015; hiring is changing.

 
 
 

Are job boards really the best way to find candidates in 2015?

Are job boards really the best way to find candidates in 2015?
Here is an increasingly common scenario: a company is looking to hire but the pool of applicants is uninspired.

The CVs and cover letters are all the same. No one stands out. What’s a hiring manager to do?

 
 
 

Time to update your CV: what is the ideal length?

Time to update your CV: what is the ideal length?
Is there an ideal CV length? Can resumes exceed two pages? The longer their career experience, the more these questions start to burn in the minds of job seekers.

Personally, I think it’s a little ridiculous to say ‘a resume should never be longer than two pages’. Instead, the main determinant of the length of your CV should be your level of seniority and experience.

 
 
 

Let them eat cake: are you out of touch with what your employees want in 2015?

Let them eat cake: are you out of touch with what your employees want in 2015?
Do you know what Australian and New Zealand professionals want more than anything when it comes to their jobs? And as their employer, are you offering it to them?

Move over extraverts: why introverts are more powerful than you think

Move over extraverts: why introverts are more powerful than you think
This year sees some landmark anniversaries. Bill Gates, frequently cited as the wealthiest person alive, turns 60, J.K. Rowling, whose fortune is valued at £560 million, turns 50, and we recognise the 150th anniversary of the death of Abraham Lincoln.

While there can be little doubt as to the inordinate successes of these individuals, each also shares a characteristic which we don’t commonly associate with prominence and power – introversion.

 
 
 

What do job seekers want more than money?

What do job seekers want more than money?
You might think that to attract top talent you need to show them the money – because that’s what job candidates want most, right?

Not any more. Hudson research shows that for the first time in several years, work life balance is the single most important thing a job seeker is looking for in a new role.
