Hiring Millennials | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages you to hire millennials into your workforce.

Summary

I want to talk to you about, as as a hiring manager, HR professionals, small business owner about hiring millennials. Millennials have an awful reputation and, mostly it's adult bigotry toward those younger thn them. Let me just explain.

Believe it or not, when you look at this face, I was once 20. When I was graduating college, it was the early 70s. You know, it was an era where younger individuals, you know, "hippies" had a certain reputation. Certainly, all the stories about younger people at that time were they'll never adjust to the workforce. They'll never, you know, work in an office. All they care about is getting out and playing. They are nine to fivers at best. They're lazy. Is this sounding vaguely familiar? You know, all they want to do is to go to concerts and fool around. This sounds remarkably like the Millennials.
I'll just simply say that for you, millennials, who roll your eyes at these stories, I'll just simply say you're going to be in the same boat at some point 25 years from now, looking at some generation that follows you, complaining, pissing and moaning about what their behaviors like. Because that seems to be the way that it works.
The boomers have gotten old and the result winds up being most of them are remarkably intolerant of what it's like to adjust from college or high school to the world of work. There is an adjustment that goes on and the ones that adjust quicker you tend to like. The ones that don't adjust, you tend to get rid of. That's the way it is.
So, I just want to remind you folks that you've got to be patient. You've got to hire on potential, some level of skill, you can't expect someone who's 20 to 25 years old to know to know as much as someone who's experienced.
But, take a look around you. If you only have an office of old people, what are you doing to the business that you're working for? You're killing it because, frankly, all of us old folks are going to die off. So, if you want to think intelligently about this and, Yes, I'm being insulting to you, because you haven't up until this point (At least many of you haven't up until this point), you've got to start laying the foundation with younger individuals to help them adjust to the workforce because that's the new leaders in your organization. Otherwise, you might as well just announce that to your management team that you want the business sold to an overseas firm and let's move on with it.
The fact of the matter is unless younger individuals start getting into the mix, then your firm is going to die off, need to be acquired and you're gonna be out of work later on in life.

No BS Hiring Advice

Don’t String Them Along | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discourages you from stringing job applicants along.

Summary

Hi, it's Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and I hunted down leaders and staff for organizations for more than 40 years. Let's talk today about some of the mistakes that hiring managers make when trying to hire people and what the impact is. Here's the mistake I want to focus on today and that is stringing people along.
What's stringing people along?
You're not going to hire them but you can't just cut bait. You just can't release them from the search process so you keep looking for someone better. And you know, you're not going to hire them but you kind of string them along for weeks on end under the off chance that maybe, just maybe ,they're gonna be the one that's chosen.
But it doesn't work that way.. You don't choose them. you wind up choosing other people. They become like the worn-out shoe in your closet, the one that you never wear, but it gives you a sense of security that at least you've got them. Well, you never wear those shoes anyway, and you're not going to hire this person.
So, why are you stringing them along? Cut bait cut them off. Let them know that you're not going to be choosing them. Let them know the reasons why .Now, if we're not quitesure about the reasons why, invite them back in and talk with them again. Maybe you're wrong. I know no one ever tells you that but maybe you're wrong.
Maybe that "red flag" that you had or that uncomfortable feeling that you had about them is just bogus and a reflection of that particular day. Regardless, make decisions because, in these days of social media and networking, I'm telling you people are sharing information with one another about how they are being treated during the job search.
Don't believe me? Go to sites like Glassdoor ,Vault,go to Facebook you'. ..you'llbe shocked at what you find'll people writing about firms all over the world. The reality is that that person that you're stringing along may be qualify . . . But there's just something about them that makes you uncomfortable to bring them on board. That's okay. If you take the time to investigate what that is by giving them a second chance .If you're just going to string them along forever, again, you're not going to hire them, you're hurting them and you run the risk of hurting yourself or your firm's reputation within the marketplace by conducting yourself like an amateur.
So, this is Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I hope you found this video helpful. If you did and you're watching on YouTube share it ,leave a comment,click the like button . . . Do something that lets people know that was worthwhile. I also want to encourage you to come over to TheBigGameHunter.us
Again, TheBigGameHunter.us
this is Jeff Altman. I hope you have a great day.

Your Best Salary Negotiation Strategy | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter points out what he believes is your best strategy for negotiating salary,

Summary

I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm referred to as the Big Game Hunter because I've hunted own leaders and staff organizations from more than 40 years. I'm back with some more no BS hiring advice to help you do an even better job of recruiting and hiring people, whether your an HR professional ,hiring manager or small business owner.
So, the advice I have today is about salary negotiation and the simplest advice I want to offer you is don't offer your top number right away. Hold on to a few dollars from it– –$5,000 $10,000, whatever you think is appropriate depending upon the level of the job. So, this way the job hunter who believes that they can negotiate to get progress off of the original offer feels like they have a victory.
They feel good about themselves. They feel good that you cared enough to up the offer to get them. And it was already slotted into what you were planning for. And the other thing is some people will say, "yes." So, they're just very calmly say, "we're making you an offer. The offer is for such . . . " Justlike you would for any offer . . . But hold on to a few dollars from the offer and try to enter into a negotiation with them.
Don't say, "well,this is negotiable" . But just, very simply, extend the offer, see if they accept and then you have more money available in case you need to go a little bit higher.
So this is Jeff Altman. I hopeyou found this video helpful. If you did it, and you're watching on YouTube. Share it, leave a comment, click the like button – –do something that lets people know that this is worthwhile.
In addition, come over my website which is www.TheBigGameHunter.us and you can read articles of I curated from around the web,sign up for a complimentary subscription to No BS Coaching Advice Ezine, which I publish twice montthly. It has advice for HR professionals, hiring managers and small business owners to help you make even better staffing decisions. Go exploring on the website. This good content there. I hope you find it helpful.

This is Jeff Altman. Have a great day. Take care.

No BS Hiring Advice

You Don’t Need Everything | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages you to zero in on the real core skills you need someone to have and stop wasting so much time money and effort interviewing.

Summary

I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and I'm back with more No BS Hiring Advice to help you make better staffing decisions, whether you're in HR, whether you're a hiring manager, whether you're a business owner . . . So many people, many firms these days are holding out for for individuals to walk in there door who meet every criteria of this lengthy job description.
How ridiculous. I'll give you an example.
I see job descriptions all the time 10- 12 items on this must have, absolutely must have and, when all is said and done, these "must haves" really could get boiled down to three or four different things while the rest of them are things that they might do somewhere once in a blue moon on a Tuesday night at two o'clock in the morning if it's sunny out . . . And it's ridiculous.
You I really need to dissect what your true needs are and then, for the ancillaries. How much time is it going to take the train someone? Seriously. How much of an expense is going to take to train someone will these secondary and tertiary items? When you think about it, your cost and your manpower cost of interviewing repeatedly these people who meetseven of the twelve and, then, you go, "no, I really need all 12," is far more expensive than what the cost is if you just let this person sit through with manual or a good book or sent them to a course and trained them on these ancillary things.
Look at the expense that's involved. You have four people interviewing 20 individuals over the course of weeks, you're interrupting their productivity to do other things and they're getting frustrated because they think their time is being wasted.
Stop this already. Just look for people who meet the real core of what you need who can work with your team and invite them to come on board. Now, if you're not sure, if you don't think they're adaptable, approach some of these people about working on a contract to hire basis. Try them out for a few months. Many people who are particularly unemployed who have worked in consulting are open to this kind of arrangement.
Stop wasting your time. It's ridiculous. Look at this over the course of a year. How many man-hours at what expense is being wasted unnecessarily going for all 10 of 12 items.
So, this is Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I hope you found this video helpful. If you did it and you're watching this YouTube, share it leave a comment or hit the like button, just do something that lets people know this was worthwhile.
I also want to invite you to come over to my website, which is www.TheBigGameHunter.us. Sign up for a complimentary subscription to No BS Coaching Advice Ezine. I publish twice monthly with advice for HR professionals, hiring managers, small business owners and job hunters to help you make even better staffing decisions, help you witha job search and help you think. While there you can read some of the articles of curated from around the web that I believe will help you with yo. IUr hiring.
So, this is Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter I hope you found this helpful. Hope you have a great day. Take care.

Get to the Point | JobSearchTV.com


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages you to get to the point in your resume and not make your reader waste a lot of time reading irrelevant information.

Summary

Today, I'm going to offer you should No BS resume advice to help you get better results when you send out your resume. There's a lot of pointers I offer about this but today's is something that I was reminded of with a resume. I was reviewing with someone yesterday. The point I want to make is get to the point .
Now, in days of old, when I started in recruiting, we actually read physical documents– – you know, a resume was sent to us on parchment paper with matching envelopes. We can look back at that historic stuff and laugh that it but that's the way it was done. We didn't have the technology we do now.
Now we receive emails of resumes though. No one actually looks at a document .We look at the screenshots. Yesterday, I got a resume from someone that ,as it turns out, fit the role. I was recruiting for. That was the good news. The bad news is I had to go through three or four page downs until I finally got the information. I needed.. Why ?Because this person decided that they want to give me a summary, a synopsis, you know a whole bunch of extraneous summary information that presented a terrible case for the candidacy, but fortunately I got down to the meat of the issue and that is what he had done over the last couple of years and was able to determine that was relevant.
Now if I took me time to read this nonsense, I would have deleted the resumebecause it was a five page resume with the first page and change being this enormous summary.
Why? Get to the point? Just demonstrates your fit for the role? That's your best sales tool if you know what the job is ,demonstrate your fit. Make sure your resume is keyword Laden, specific to the position that is being filled . Now, if you're posting a resume on a job board,it's very different. You want to have lots of keywords in your resume, and,maybe, a synopsis like this can be helpful… but not a page and quarter!
You want to make sure people are reading the meat of your resume in one page down at most so that this way you're not putting them through a bunch of work, and worse, a bunch of stuff that may get them annoyed or distracted tothe point where you cause yourself to be rejected.
I want to make sure you hear that.
You cause yourself to be rejected .
Just get to the information that's relevant,that's going to describe your background most effectively for the position that you're looking for and the role that's being filled this.
