   5 Ways Employers Make Job Seekers Beg  |  Forbes, Liz Ryan                                                          08/09/2017
   There is a widely-shared mindset about employment that many of us have been taught
   since childhood. 
It is a very sturdy "frame," or mental model. In the traditional frame,
   employers are on top and employees are on the bottom. Even lower on the totem pole
   sit lowly job-seekers. 
Unfortunately, many if not most working people have internalized
   this frame.
   They believe that job-seekers are supposed to grovel and beg for a job. They believe that
   the purpose of a job interview is to interrogate and test a job seeker to make sure they are
   worthy of working for the employer.
   Too many employers treat job-seekers like dirt because they think they can afford to. They
   don't understand that the more marketable and in-demand a job applicant is — whether
   someone is working or not — the harder the employer has to work to snag that person.

    Irresistible Hiring Practices That Will
    Help You Cross the Finish Line Every Time  |  LinkedIn, Roberta Chinsky Matuson                         08/02/2017
     You know from your own experience, and from that of your peers, that it takes time
     and effort to create the magnetism needed to pull talent toward you. For our purposes,
     let’s assume you’ve been successful in your efforts to draw people in. You’re halfway
     home. To cross the finish line, you’ll need to sustain their interest in coming to work
     for you and your company, as you put them through the paces your firm requires
     before candidates are hired.
  As you read through this excerpt from my newly
     published book, The Magnetic Leader, I’m going to challenge you to look at your hiring
     practices every step along the way. Try doing so from a job seeker’s perspective. Think
     about what areas you can improve upon. What steps can you eliminate? Are your hiring
     practices enabling you to hire the right people or are they doing more harm than good?
     Let’s begin by putting you in the driver’s seat.
