Top 7+ Signs You About to Make a Hiring Mistake | Genomics Recruiter

Hiring a new employee is a time-consuming and expensive process that can make human resource and hiring managers feel pressured to cut corners just to get through it. While the frustration is understandable, simply checking the box is a poor approach. A bad hire ends up costing a company in numerous ways, including lost productivity, lost wages, lost revenue, damage to reputation, and having to go through the hiring process again when that employee quits or gets fired.

Here are a few common signs you are about to make hiring mistakes:
Going with Your Gut

There is a lot of talk about how people should trust their gut and go with their first impression. That might work in other areas of life, but it is rarely a good idea when it comes to hiring an employee. Whether a hiring manager personally likes a job candidate has no bearing on that individual having the right qualifications for the job or fitting into company culture. In the Genomics, Genetics, BioTech and Diagnostics Industries w

You’ve Been Downsized From Your Genomics or Genetics Diagnostics Company? Now what?

Oh my! You have just learned that your job has been eliminated or you’ve been demoted from your current role. This is all too common in the current crisis.

What do you do? First of all, try not to panic.

Downsizing does happen… but not to me, you say? First thing to do is take some deep breaths and move past the denial stage. Try to relax and put together an action plan. Just like anything else in life, you need to start taking steps to better your situation and get what you want.

There are a few “housekeeping” items you have to take care of straight away.
Collect Your Final Paycheck

Make sure that you know when you will receive your last paycheck, and how it will be delivered to you. Some states require employers pay it immediately; others may allow a short time lag. Make sure you get everything that is due to you.

Entitlements could include monies for overtime, back pay, accrued vacation, or sick leave. Talk to the appropriate person in your HR department to learn what y

Hello everyone, Andy Gesner, owner and president of HIP Video Promo!

As someone who has worked in music video promotion for nearly 20 years, I want to share with you the biggest question I am asked here at HIP: how do I get my music video on MTV? Well, ladies and gentlemen, attaching the brand of your artistry to an international brand like MTV is not easy.

You can look online, and they’re going to direct you to a company called DMDS- Digital Music Delivery Service. They’re in Canada, and they are expensive. Why pay them a large sum of money to have your new music video close-captioned, quality checked, and then submitted through their portal to MTV, mtvU, MTV’s Pluto channels? All kinds of opportunities are there, but if it’s wildly expensive, you’re

5+ Essentials to Effectively Promoting Your Brand in Crisis

This is not a time to sit still and wait until ‘everything is normal again.’ This is a time to use your isolation to intently think long and deep about who you are as a professional, what your company REALLY does, and what the world should know about your brand – either professional or corporate. Get clear, and get ready to make sure your voice, your talents, your value and your message are heard, not silenced ….revealed, not suppressed…made visible, not extinguished…during and long after this temporary cloistering.

Without self promotion, something terrible happens – nothing. Being the best kept secret in the world is nothing to be proud of, unless you are in special ops or other covert line of work….If your breakout strategy depends on waiting to be discovered and rewarded based on merit alone, bring a lunch and several good reads – you will be waiting a long while. You have just this one life to live, and without mastering the fine art of self promotion, it is

Recruiter News – How Relentless Grit Helps You Win

When most people think of Nike, they tend to think of super athletes who Just Do IT! Folks like Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, LeBron, Federer, Sharapova; maybe a few fallen stars, like Lance Armstrong and Pistorius; those on the rise again, like Tiger; controversial ones like Kaepernick; and now, a lost star, who showed us an 81 point game and 30 points in one quarter (twice) could be real things. The world will miss Kobe.

But when Nike employees picture someone, they still think of a scrappy, 5’9”, 139 lbs mustachioed runner named Steve Prefontaine, otherwise known in running circles as Pre. Prefontaine was the prized pupil of the company’s co-founder, Bill Bowerman, from his coaching days at the University of Oregon. His spirit is the cornerstone of the company.

He competed in every race as a life or death experience, and was fond of saying, “Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.” His philosophy and style were to run without limits, to test t

7 Ways to Turn The Grind Into The Goal

Renowned coaches are often asked what the difference is between the best athletes and everyone else. In other words, “What do really successful people do that most people don’t?” Of course, there are the typical responses of genetics, luck, and talent.

But there’s an added element most don’t think of…It is the will to be relentless and resilient in the Grind. It’s the ability to handle the boredom of training every day and doing the same lifts, drills and film review over and over again that separates the professionals from the amateurs.

Think about it this way – it’s not that the best athletes have some insane, boundless passion or willpower others don’t; it can even be the exact opposite. They can feel the same boredom and lack of motivation everyone else experiences and aren’t immune to the sometimes tedious heft of the daily grind.

What sets them apart is their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, with the repetition, and
