    STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE
    Standards of ExcellenceWhat does that Mean to a Client/Candidate/Recruiter?
    In recruiting at LH&A, our job is to source the best possible candidates who match our clients’ hiring needs. Our clients tend to have tight specs. We work very hard to recruit the best talent in terms of industry experience, core competencies, cultural fit and salary expectations.
    Since we specialize in communications and marketing, we expect our candidates to excel in these areas. Sadly, we are seeing sloppy resumes, spelling and punctuation errors and laissez-faire attitudes from many candidates.
    When I point out that there are errors, some candidates get mad at me and withdraw. That is their choice. Do I make mistakes? I try not to and work diligently to correct my errors. Each mistake equates a learning opportunity. If I present candidates with mistakes on their resumes, then I lose credibility with my clients.  I don’t have a second chance to make a first impression.  Neither do candidates.
    Please take the time to proof your work, word by word. Walk away from your credentials and come back with fresh eyes. Print out your materials. Take a pen and review each word. Take special care with apostrophes. There is no such thing as Bachelors in Arts. That means that there are many unmarried men! Correct spelling should be: Bachelor of Arts or B.A. in Arts.
    I hope this helps.

    What Is Your High-Wire Act?  

    7-13-18: Show Us Your High-Wire Act!-

    Some Social Media Tips-Take a Look At Our Jobs!

    The Flying Wallendas
     
    While waiting to view “Man on Wire” at Millennium Park, I was amazed to see the Flying Wallendas, a family act that performs high-wire acts without a safety harness. The overall performance was incredible. When one of the performers stood on the shoulders of the senior Wallenda, I said, ” WOW!” This is the WOW factor we talk about in job interviews. What will you do to captivate your audience?

     

     
    SOCIAL MEDIA TIP

    There is a vast difference between using social media personally and professionally. When integrating social media usage into a resume, include your platforms, metrics, and most importantly, your impact. The results gained from creating social media content are critical for a professional social media job position.

     We’re seeing a pattern of how candidates include social media usage into their resumes, and it is often vague. We need to see case studies of your social media successes. We want evidence of your expertise in social media. Your resume is your social media branding document!
     We are recruiting talent who are highly skilled in marketing, advertising, public relations, social media, marketing project management and marketing communications. You might have that WOW factor our clients are looking for! 
    Keep reading for job updates. We look forward to providing you a position that complements your talents.

No matter what the specific problem is, it all amounts to the same thing: Your content marketing sucks.
    Here are 12 of the most common problems with content, and how to fix them.

    FEATURED ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
    You may think all speakers have points, but that’s incorrect. All speakers have words. But the most effective and memorable communicators identify and champion a clear argument, often with actionable recommendations for audience response. If done well, this point can be boiled down to a single sentence-not just by the speaker, but most importantly by the audience.

    This Year’s Commencement Speakers Made Great Points- And You Can, Too!

    Thank you to DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business and the Marketing Advisory Council (MAC) for honoring me with its Lifetime Achievement Award at its Marketing Alumni Reception on June 14. Was I in for the surprise of my professional life…. I never expected to win this prestigious award. I am not a DePaul alum. It’s nice to know that the MAC made an exception, for which I am eternally grateful. Here’s to many more years of partnership with the DePaul community: its faculty, students, staff and fellow members of the MAC. May we continue to grow from strength to strength.
