10 years. That’s how long I’ve been learning, reading and writing about hiring. I’ve written funny job posts, covered not-so-funny candidate experience and pretty much everything in between.
I’ve learned, but clearly I missed an important step. Application.
That’s an important one.
In starting the hiring process for Three Ears Media, I didn’t follow any of my own advice. I didn’t talk to my network first. I didn’t drill down into the skills I needed. Hell, I didn’t even have a job post.
I just rolled my eyes at myself.
So I wrote about it, of course. It’s only partially self-shaming. The rest is on what I learned the hard way, and advice you can use, too. I’m also sharing a new approach to candidate experience that’s based on effort; I think it’s brilliant. Finally, an old but great post from Laurie Ruettimann on resilience. Especially appropriate this week, and every week if you’re human.
Hope you have a great weekend -
CEO, Three Ears Media
