Now that the holiday season is approaching, I’ve started to consider how I can best assist those looking for jobs over the holidays. I am reminded of an important lesson that I learned from my daughter and her soccer coach.
Ah, the post Thanksgiving blitz. A time for frenzied gift shopping, gaudy holiday decorations, and, most importantly, holiday office parties. While these parties can be a lot of fun and a great way to connect with co-workers outside of your day-to-day, there are plenty of social and professional landmines you will need to side step.
In this month’s blog, we focus on Employee Learning Week. Running from December 3rd to December 8th this year, it is a global awareness campaign to highlight the important connection between a highly skilled workforce and organizational results.1
As the smell of turkey gravy permeates the brisk November air, we are reminded to take a step back and reflect on all the wondrous joys we have been blessed with in our lives. This year at Judge, we have many things to be thankful for. Here is a small selection of things the Judge team is thankful for this year.

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.
