    Episode 26: Evolution of Hiring

    Episode 26: Evolution of Hiring

    I'm celebrating my birthday this month, and I'd love for you to join me as I reflect on how much the hiring world has changed.  Throughout my career, I've witnessed how human resources has changed, evolved, and created new opportunities to focus on various aspects of the employee and candidate experience.

    In this episode, I explore how much has changed in my career from the "personnel department," "staffing department," "recruitment department," and "talent acquisition department." All of these terms have one thing in common: they all aim to hire and fill a position. Otherwise, each role has some additional complexities, and I'll only scratch the surface of each of these roles in this episode.

    Recruiting vs. Talent Acquisition.  How different are they?  I will talk about the shift from recruiting to talent acquisition and how to understand what makes each role unique.

    Episode 25: Eggrolls and Eyerolls - My AAPI life

    Episode 25: Eggrolls and Eyerolls - My AAPI life

    Episode 25 of the Jess Get Hired Podcast is entitled,  Eggrolls and Eyerolls.  In honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month #AAPI, I made it in time to share my lighthearted take on what it's like to be an Asian in Corporate America. To be more specific, Filipino. I briefly discuss why Asian women are precluded from leadership positions at America's Top Companies, as well as the boardroom's lack of diversity. I'll also share a few of my "eye-roll" moments. I share my stories and experiences, as well as address the most common misconceptions that most people have:
    "Where are you from?"
    "You aren't Asian enough...."
    "Asians never seem to age,......you look like you're 12."
    "Asians become doctors or nurses..."

    "You know Karate, right?"
    ...and more....  This is a good-natured conversation that I hope entertains you while also shedding light on our differences and allowing us to laugh about it..

    Episode 24: Opportunity Overhaul! featuring Matt Warzel

    Episode 24: Opportunity Overhaul! featuring Matt Warzel

    Jess Get Hired Podcast - Episode 24 - Opportunity Overhaul with Career Coach, Matthew Warzel
    Opportunity is out there.  What are you doing to go after it?  
    Join me in a conversation with Matt Warzel, a certified resume writing expert and career coach.  We talk about bouncing back after being laid off and the different struggles many job seekers are facing today.  He shares a few tips to stand out from the crowd so you can take advantage of the different opportunities ahead of you.
    Finding opportunities isn’t about submitting resumes you find on a job board and waiting for recruiters or companies to contact you. A part of finding your next opportunity is about putting in some work.  That includes:

    Networking with a purpose – start with the people you already know and then get out of your comfort zone and find people in the industry or occupation you are looking to get into. 
    Join professional organizations. These are groups that can give you the inside track.
    Job Boards are not the end-all and be-all solution, but use it as a starting point.  Find recruiters to partner with who can help you. Get a career coach to help you take a strategic approach and keep you motivated for your next career opportunity!
    Find a Recruiter that will be your new bestie - They will advocate for you if they know who you are and your capabilities!

    It takes a lot of time and patience and depending on the position you’re chasing, the experience you bring to the table, finding the right opportunity will take time, so you will need patience and resilience.
    About Matt:
    Matthew Warzel, CPRW is a certified resume writing expert with over 15 years in Human Resources and career advancement techniques.  He manages MJW Careers and provides assistance to companies in transition from downsizes to buyouts as well as individual job seekers needing to advance their careers.

    Episode 23: Winning the Interview Game with Matt Evans, ConfidentlyInterview.com

    Episode 23: Winning the Interview Game with Matt Evans, ConfidentlyInterview.com

    What is the Interview Game and are you playing it correctly?  The rules aren’t always about having the best-looking resume or perfectly answering the questions during the job interview.  The rules of the game have changed over the years.  Today's job market requires that you stand out from the crowd and how you market yourself.  Personal branding is the hidden secret to winning the Interview Game.  

    How are you showing up to the process?  Are you marketing yourself online?  How do you sell yourself to hiring leaders and during the job interview?  Being your authentic self is important and what sets yourself apart from other players in the game.....
    Meet Matt Evans, owner of ConfidentlyInterview.com.  He is an interview coach who helps job seekers become prepared and confident for interviews. He personally had to learn the “interview game” the hard way early in his career, but was ultimately able to navigate himself to his dream job at Apple. During his 10+ years of real-world experience, he has hired hundreds of people and has helped them progress in their own careers. What sets Matt apart is that he doesn’t only teach interview tips and strategies that help people stand out, but also partners with people throughout the interview process.  

    In this episode, Matt and I share our perspective on how to get through the Interview Process and some tips to help you along the way.  To hear more secret hints and codes on the game, you have to listen to this entire episode!

    Episode 22: Level Up Your Recruiting (and Search) Game! with Darrian Mikell, Qualifi.hr

    Episode 22: Level Up Your Recruiting (and Search) Game! with Darrian Mikell, Qualifi.hr

    Recruiters, what if technology could cut down your candidate screening time?  
    Jobseekers, what if you could do an interview when it was convenient for you?
    This episode will focus on leveling up your recruiting game so you can hire great candidates faster than ever before, and give job seekers a glimpse into the screening process and how to be better prepared.  Meet Darrian Mikell, Co-Founder, and CEO of Qualifi.hr, a SaaS platform that powers the fastest phone interview experience in the world! 
    Many organizations are feeling the effect of a lack of resources to screen candidate resumes and job applications in order to fill open positions. Qualifi is assisting in resolving the time-consuming task of conducting phone interviews. Since the pandemic, job seekers have felt increased pressure to conduct more video interviews and video conferencing, which is not always convenient when they are on the go.  By using a phone-only interview platform, it removes bias, increases productivity, and helps the overall candidate experience.
    Darrian shares his story about why he created this platform and we discuss how jobseekers can prepare for interviews.
    Learn more about Qualifi at qualifi.hr and jessgethired.com
