Organizations Still Fall Short on Hiring Veterans

Posted by Len April on May 31, 2016 1:00:00 PM

Yesterday, many Americans celebrated Memorial Day. The holiday began as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the Civil War. Formerly known as Decoration Day, the event was first observed in 1865 by freed slaves from South Carolina to commemorate fallen Union soldiers. By the early 20th century, Memorial Day had lost much of its initial meaning, becoming a long weekend devoted to shopping, family get-togethers, fireworks, trips to the beach and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500. It seems an odd way of paying tribute to servicemembers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the fulfillment of their duties. While we remember the fallen, I think we should also reflect on the powerful contributions living veterans have to offer -- especially as members of the civilian workforce.

Strengthen Your Hiring by Recruiting for Potential, Not Direct Work Experience

Posted by Sunil Bagai on May 26, 2016 11:00:09 AM

Obsessing over candidates’ direct work experience instead of their potential could be sabotaging your recruitment efforts. We’ve entered an era where more professionals are changing their career paths, and where the young generation makes up the majority of the labor force. Do Millennials have much “experience?” Probably not, at least in the context typical job postings intend. Yet many have highly needed technical skills, a solid education, motivation and driven attitudes. They also have practical experiences that shape and influence their potential contributions. The subject of experience is a topic we often take for granted. Perhaps we should rethink the idea that years translate to performance. And it may also be time to reconsider the very concept of experience.
