Regardless if you are looking for a job or a candidate, make sure that the opportunity at hand is going to be a good fit both from a job / career standpoint as well as a cultural fit standpoint.
For employers: Not doing enough to sell the company or job opportunity to a candidate. For job seekers: Not doing enough research and preparation on the company and job opportunity prior to an interview.
Occasionally: throwing snowballs at cars, entering hotdog eating contests and thumb wrestling. More often: watching NFL football, eating at great local restaurants, traveling and spending time with friends and family.
I enjoy finding the best matches for job seekers and employers, building strong relationships with people and helping individuals to enhance their careers.
