They weren’t that impressed/sold after my first interview…but a phone call got me a second interview with different interviewers and landed me the job. Back then the hiring policy was based around fitting into the culture more than what’s on your resume. My managers pet hate when at career days etc is when uni students/grads come up to the stand and their first (and sometimes only) question is “how can I apply?”.
Obviously not interested.

My only nit with this: Many job posters state very adamantly in their ads: No phone calls, please. But I agree wholeheartedly with the need to follow up. I always do.

Comment on 5 massive lessons learned from quitting my job by Sam Trattleshttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2015/03/5-massive-lessons-learned-from-quitting-my-job/#comment-1844451 Tue, 24 Mar 2015 23:41:55 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=7870#comment-1844451 Great top 5 Chris! Congratulations on the adventure you have undertaken.
My builds:
Remember to take time out for silence. There is so much noise in a role that you don’t notice until you step out. I spent 3 months driving around this beautiful country, reacquainting myself with the outdoors, while singing out loud and visiting fabulous friends. (With the device off most of the time.)

Enjoy the ride, and don’t spend too much time looking back – whatever is in front of you will be worth the stress and fear.

Comment on Personal branding on LinkedIn: 11 mistakes to avoid by Carolyn Hyamshttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2014/05/personal-branding-on-linkedin-11-mistakes-to-avoid/#comment-1844410 Tue, 24 Mar 2015 22:13:53 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=6199#comment-1844410 Hi Cherry, It’s a little tricky that one, but if you can find some sort of context around why you want to connect, and can send a personal message along with the “friend” option, I think that’s okay. For example, I see that you faved my tweet on this subject on Twitter, so I might go to LinkedIn and send you a message saying “thanks, I hope you found my article on LinkedIn useful. We seem to have a lot of interests in common. Would you like to connect?”. Some people send DMs from Twitter saying connect with me on LinkedIn. This is not personal, but if you think the connection might be useful to you, you can mention their message on Twitter in your email to them (and choose the friend option). Hope this helps :)

I was looking into adding some people on LinkedIn. You mentioned that “friend” would not be a great option to do so. How would you go about which option to choose?

For example, I’ve seen many people send personal messages on Twitter to have us add them on LinkedIn. Would I still consider them as friends? More so, how should I respond to these?

Thanks!

Comment on Why we need to hire nutters, pirates and positive deviants to succeed by Sapnahttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2011/09/why-we-need-to-hire-nutters-pirates-and-positive-deviants-to-succeed/#comment-1839747 Mon, 23 Mar 2015 06:13:39 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/new/?p=1246#comment-1839747 Hi Hilton

I can not agree more to what you have said. I being one of Such examples.My ex company really wanted people who were different and bold enough to put their point on table, but such people do not conform to the general decorum of office, think differently and therefore need superiors who have enough time to nurture them and get them in conformity to larger company’ s vision and Mission.

I resigned from my role late last year & took off to Europe for a 3 month corporate detox & to remove some grime from the soul. Had I gone from my busy Exec role to being at home full time I would have gone mad. Congrats to you for being brave & reflective enough to gain some really good insights in the process.

Comment on How to prevent a social media crisis in business by Laura Hamiltonhttp://blog.firebrandtalent.com/2015/03/how-to-prevent-a-social-media-crisis-in-business/#comment-1812823 Sun, 15 Mar 2015 12:25:24 +0000 http://blog.firebrandtalent.com/?p=7837#comment-1812823 Great piece, but I would argue that we should stop treating social media as separate and special (it’s been around for a while) and drop the term ‘social media crisis’. Most (if not all) crises break on social media these days and anyone who isn’t onto it in the first 15 minutes misses the opportunity to own it. Perhaps the time has come to start treating social as just another channel. And if we do that, maybe the C-suite will stop baulking and start engaging.
