January is one of the busiest months for job searches. It’s no wonder, as people return to work after the holidays and think about making a fresh start. This month’s podcast is especially timely with three insightful topics for both job fillers and job seekers.

In this episode, podcast host James Hornick and Hirewell partner Jeff Smith discuss:

  • What happens when hiring managers have the ideal candidate in front of them, but they don’t have a job opening or the right job opening? Hint: It involves taking the long view.
     
  • Speaking of taking the long view, that’s something a lot of recruiting firms don’t do very well. Instead, they encourage recruiters to compete to provide hiring managers with a high volume of candidates, but not necessarily the best matches. Find out how to determine if your recruiting firm understands your needs and has your best interests at heart.
     
  • Job hopping used to be considered a no-no, but it’s increasingly prevalent. When should a hiring manager be concerned over an applicant’s frequent job changes? We’ll give you the tips you need to separate the innovators from the flakes.
