What do you do when your learning organization grows year after year? How can you deliver the same quality and standards to your clients? How do you scale from managing 3 projects to 40? Directing a learning team has both joys and challenges; here are some practices that will help make your experience a positive one.
If you use the internet, you are at risk for identity theft, especially as a professional in today’s job market. Job seekers are being targeted more frequently than ever. Whether you’re very active in your job search, have your resume on your LinkedIn & other career websites, or just casually entertaining a recruiter from time to time over the phone - keeping your personal information on lock isn’t as easy as you would like to think. Scammers are creeping into inboxes and voicemails using smart and deceiving ways to appear legitimate. How? By preying on online resumes, job boards, and company pages to concoct the perfect position to lure you in. Why? Identity Theft.
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). This year, Judge Learning Solutions' cybersecurity blog is all about improving your web presence. Your website often provides prospective customers with their first impressions of your company. It also impacts your image with existing customers.
It’s an exciting time to be a casino resort or racetrack. With the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992, states are now free to create their own laws regarding sports betting. As laws legalizing sports betting continue to be passed, and they’re happening quickly (see Delaware and New Jersey), it is imperative that casinos and racetracks are in a position to take advantage.
If you’ve ever been on the job hunt before, you know it can be pretty draining. It can also be an overwhelming task if it has been a while since your last job search. So why not work with a recruiter that can help you with that search?
As we all have seen, mobility in the workplace is king. Employees require immediate access to email, corporate documents, the internet… we require the world at our fingertips. IDC estimates that mobile workers in the U.S. alone will reach more than 105 million by 2020, and that number should significantly increase as more millennials, who value flexibility and work-life balance over traditional working environments, surge into the work force. This transformation will lead to huge productivity gains and significant corporate savings as the traditional office space shrinks and the mobile workforce continues to take over.
As the economy continues on its upwards trajectory, the unemployment rate continues to fall. This is great news! It’s always a positive when more people can find meaningful work. But, as the employment rate continues to rise, companies are finding it more and more difficult to hire the skilled workers they need in the most competitive employment sectors.
Working with a Staffing Agency is a great way to find the top-quality talent your company needs to stay ahead of the game in an increasingly competitive business landscape. As you know, this can be a time intensive process. Working with a partner allows you to focus on your core business and be confident you are gaining access to the best available candidates.
As you might assume, the healthcare industry takes up a large chunk of the U.S. economies GDP with one profession leading the charge: nurses! Nurses perform a variety of responsibilities that are extremely important to the overall delivery of healthcare across a multitude of settings and are the number one profession within the Healthcare Industry. They work in a space that is notorious for long hours and a lack of staffing – a problem that appears to be continuing. There has been a lot of discussion recently about a nursing shortage and most nurses would tend to agree. I say most because there is a bit of a twist to this shortage we keep on hearing about.
If you have been to a medical facility for something that was hurting, or you had some type of health issue, chances are you have been helped by a nurse. I remember as a kid (I was very involved in sports) I was always getting rushed to the hospital or outpatient care facility and loved telling my “heroic” injury story to the nurses. I can recall them asking the most questions, telling funny jokes, and being very informative as well as attentive. Now as an adult working in the healthcare industry (and somehow still getting injured) I really get to see how good these professionals are at their job.
The first day of spring has finally arrived! You know what that means: spring cleaning! While now is the perfect time to clean out your closet and get a slick new haircut, it’s also the perfect time to update your professional accessories. You know, things like your resume, LinkedIn profile, and portfolio. You don’t need to be an active job seeker to take part – revisiting & refreshing your professional accessories periodically is good practice. Here is The Judge Group’s guide to a professional spring cleaning.
As someone who has spent the better part of his career in the Staffing & Professional Services industry, I probably read more resumes in a year than many people read in a lifetime. It’s an important part of the world in which I operate, and tells me what someone has accomplished in his/her career to date. Often times the resume is well-written and I can tell early on whether or not I feel the candidate is on the right track. And then there are times when the jury is out, and I just can’t get a read on the candidate. Yeah, the matter-of-fact stuff is on the resume, but WHO is he/she?
'Tis Valentine's Day! The aromas of roses and chocolates are in the air as feelings of love & affection are expressed through those chalky candy hearts and their simple, yet effective, expressions of love.
The hearts of the Judge team have been swept up by the romantic atmosphere. We found ourselves captivated by the romance permeating the air and started to wistfully think about what we love here at Judge. So in honor of Valentine's Day, here is what we love at Judge (sadly not in chalky candy heart form).
Let's be real for a second: the most exciting thing about the Super Bowl for a lot of people are the commercias. Not judging (pun intended) but it's a fact. Most people around the country don't have a vested interest in either team playing. Instead, they want to see what amazing, spectacular commercials comapines come up with for the game. In an ode to those dedicated commercial watchers, here are our Top 5 Employment-Related Super Bowl Commercials.
As a job seeker, your resume is the first impression you give to a recruiter or hiring manager. As such, your resume needs to show off your experience, project what you will bring to the position, and generally reflect on you as a person. This is a lot for a single piece of paper to convey! To help you create a resume that will accomplish all these things, we went around and asked our recruiters their advice for crafting a resume. Here’s what they had to say:
Are you looking for new career opportunities but don’t know where to start with your LinkedIn profile? As a millennial, I was introduced to LinkedIn early on in my career. In college, my professors stressed how IMPORTANT your LinkedIn profile is for your professional life. It was always connect, endorse, recommend. These were the KEYS to building a great LinkedIn profile. I still believe those three actions are very important in creating your LinkedIn profile, but there is so much more to it than that…
