The Pandemic Workplace

Monday, October 12, 2020  by Bailey


What was once the parameters of a positive workplace enviiroment to promote happy and productive worker, has completely turned 180 degrees at present. Remote offices are the norm during the pandemic and many are settling in for the long haul. Some may move to virtual permanently and re-allocate expenses from a physical location into marketing, technology, or new hires. Whether temporary or permanent, it is important to establish new procedures and policies to the team with consistent communication. The open door policy for management and establishing a camraderie within the team is still  important to employees and just requires redefining communication methods and prioritizing time on the schedule for touch base meetings with follow up. Workplace culture can be positive by encouraging employees to find an environment that makes them happy and lends itself to productivity while also ensuring they feel supported from afar.

Recruiting Relationships

Monday, September 14, 2020  by Bailey

At B&B, we have developed many relationships over the last 33 years to fill senior and executive level positions for many companies across the country. It is important to us not only to develop relationships with the clients we recruit for, we also want what's best for you, our job seekers. Like with most relationships, building good ones can take time and it is never too early to get to know us and our process. Here are some tips:
Send someone our way and we are sure to pay it forward. Not only are you helping out a friend, when the time comes for you we will remember you thought of us. Referrals are one of the largest sources for our leads.
Honesty is the best policy:
Remember that we have the ability to do very thorough background checks. Don’t exaggerate or worse lie about your credentials, it can really damage your reputation in the long run. We want to get to know the real you so we can make sure you are the right fit for the jobs we fill.
Be Ready:
We all have bad days at the office. Before you take the leap and reach out to us to make sure you are really ready and committed to wanting to change jobs. We want your experience with us to be a successful one.
Set Limits:
Let us know from the beginning if there are certain industries, employers or geographic areas that are off limits. This way we can deliver exactly what you are looking for.
When thinking about changing jobs right off the bat think about those references and make sure they are strong ones. They help us get to know you better and often references tell us great attributes and qualities about you that you may not have thought to include in your resume.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions:
Ask away about the company, the culture, the requirements, again we want to make sure you will be happy in your new position.

Preparing for the Interview

Friday, August 14, 2020  by Bailey

If you are going to in-person or virtually interview with a company that you are sincerely interested in, then you need to invest the time and prepare for the interview. Here are some basic things that need to be accomplished:

Research the company: Try to understand their business model, products and/or services, recent news & events, vision, and philosophy toward employees, customers, and their business.

Research who you will be interviewing with: Get to know where they went to school, prior employers, and career track to learn if there are any parallels to your background to connect to.

Prepare a list of questions: Have questions center around learning more about the business model, how leadership manages and communicates, core functionality, and opportunities to contribute.

Prepare a list of examples that illustrate your knowledge and abilities that would apply in the role you are interviewing for: Some examples would be if the role requires multi-tasking, then an example of how you multi-task, prioritize tasks, and meet deadlines would be appropriate. If the role includes process improvement, look to previous roles where you identified areas that could be streamlined and how you facilitated a change for the better.

Prepare to be asked questions: Many questions are specific, however, be well prepared for the questions most common to many interviews. Here are 15 questions to ponder:

  1. Why are you interested in working for our company?
  2. What are your five year goals?
  3. Why do you want to leave your current employer?
  4. What are your top three strengths?
  5. What are your weaknesses?
  6. What can you offer us that someone else can’t?
  7. Tell me about an accomplishment you are most proud of.
  8. Tell me about a time you made a mistake.
  9. Give me three to five adjectives that best describe your personality.
  10. Share a time when you went above and beyond the requirements for a project.
  11. What efforts have you made to fortify your education and gain knowledge?
  12. How flexible are your work hours?
  13. Tell me about a time when you disagreed with your boss?
  14. If I called your boss right now and asked what can you improve on, what would your boss say?
  15. What motivates you?
