Cost effective vacancy advertisements

first_imgDear Editor,Many vacancy advertisements in the local media seem to ignore some basic criteria of cost effective advertising such as the need to catch the attention of potential candidates and to attract a sufficient number of applicants to facilitate a competitive selection process.Newspaper advertising is undoubtedly the most popular but is not the only method for achieving such objectives; trade journals, radio, TV, in-house and word-of-mouth come readily to mind; and, in today’s fast-paced, ubiquitous, electronic communication, we cannot ignore the cost-free Social Media as perhaps the best means of getting our messages across. Newspaper ads are expensive and must therefore be properly used to achieve cost-benefit effectiveness.A review of all the Vacancy ads appearing in all the local newspapers last Sunday reveals many ‘malpractices’.For example: using the routine ‘clerical’ or ‘defensive’ approach by replicating details from the Job Descriptions and regurgitating the Job Specifications instead of studiously internalising and smartly projecting the essential aspects of the job and applying some ‘marketing’ techniques/approaches to sell it.In this context, it must be realised that people who are happy and challenged in their current positions do not normally ‘look out’ for vacancy ads, yet these are the very people who should be targeted in any serious ad; hence the need for the ‘marketing’ vs the ‘bureaucratic’ approach. (Notwithstanding, it must also be cautioned that the essential focus of an ad must not be lost in verbiage that is confusing; there is a clear example of such confusion in a lengthy ad appearing in last Sunday’s Chronicle where a major corporation confused the search for ‘a person’ to market an asset with ‘the asset’ itself!.Another trend from the review of last Sunday’s ads is the insensitivity to ‘balance’ in that ads for routine clerical functions were given the high prominence and costly space typically reserved for relatively senior professionals heading up major organisational functions. Another major corporation, guilty of this remiss, has been repeating the said ad all of this week.A rather offensive practice is to include at the bottom of ads a note to the effect that “only shortlisted applications will be acknowledged”! What is the purpose or value of such an insulting, off-putting, note? I can think of no better way to deter good applications. It cannot be that the cost or burden of acknowledging all applications is a factor in this e-mail age.It is also worth noting that sometimes (for example for confidentiality/or to avoid undue speculations) it might be better to use a professional ‘head-hunter’ or for the HR Manager and other senior executives to assume the role of typical head hunters instead of always adopting the conventional recruitment processes.Yours truly,Nowrang Persaudlast_img read more

New chief takes on L.A. gang fight

first_imgBut school attendance and prison recidivism rates could be clear indicators, he said. Also, City Controller Laura Chick is auditing the city’s anti-gang program, which could lead to other recommendations. Carr is a former chief operating officer of a liberal evangelical group based in Washington, D.C. He also headed the Bresee Foundation providing healthcare, job skills and other services in southern parts of Los Angeles. Carr said he is still learning his way around City Hall and the various social agencies and community groups in the city. For decades, the city’s gang problem has been attacked on various fronts by more than a dozen agencies from federal law enforcement to grass-roots gang intervention groups like Communities in Schools in North Hills. The city itself has nearly two dozen anti-gang programs. LOS ANGELES – A few blocks from a shootout between gang members and police on Thursday, newly appointed gang czar Jeff Carr started his first day on the job with a promise to boost gang suppression. Acknowledging the tough challenge ahead, Carr said it would take a long, concerted effort to rid the streets of gang crime. Named last month by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to lead a citywide gang intervention and prevention drive, Carr said he hopes to flood high-gang areas with badly needed resources. And in the long term, reduce gang violence. Carr is finalizing his budget and it is unclear how he will measure his success. Carr has repeatedly said it’s often easier to measure failure, such as crimes, than it is to measure success, such as the number of kids steered away from a life of crime. But for the most part, agencies have been unable to make a dent, as gang membership has swollen to beyond 40,000 and the problem continues to spread across the city and country. “What his biggest challenge is going to be is rising above the bureaucratic nonsense and taking control over the programs and department personnel who are needed to reduce violence,” said Connie Rice, a civil rights lawyer who authored a report on the city’s gang programs. She found the maze of anti-gang programs inefficient. If Carr is to be effective, she said, he will have to listen to interventionists and academics who better understand how gang influence ricochets through a community rather than the half dozen politicians who have adopted their own plans. His chief task will be to implement Villaraigosa’s strategy to target eight “gang reduction zones” including one in the Northeast Valley by flooding them with social and police services. The plan is part of a larger one unveiled with Los Angeles Police Department Chief William Bratton in February that included creating a most wanted list of gangs and gang members. Since then, violent gang crime in the Valley, which had risen in 2006 by 44 percent, has not abated. rachel.uranga@dailynews.com (818) 713-3000160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Spector seeks a new lead counsel

first_imgRETRIAL: Only one attorney stayed on the music producer’s case; he still may bow out. By Linda Deutsch THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Most of Phil Spector’s defense lawyers are bowing out of his second murder trial, and the legendary music producer has begun an intensive search for a new lead counsel, a remaining lawyer told the judge Wednesday. Clarkson, 40, died about 5a.m. Feb. 3, 2003, of a gunshot fired in her mouth as she sat in the foyer of Spector’s Alhambra mansion. The defense contends that the shot was self-inflicted, either an accident or a suicide. The prosecution contended that Spector shot her. Clarkson’s mother and sister, who attended the entire trial, were present Wednesday with their lawyers. They have filed a wrongful-death civil suit against Spector.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “I’m the last man standing,” said attorney Christopher Plourd, who presented scientific evidence during the trial which ended last week in a mistrial. The jury deadlocked 10-2 with the majority favoring conviction. “Mr. Spector is actively seeking new lead counsel. He probably needs three, four or five weeks to do this. He’s interviewing one lawyer today,” said Plourd, who added that six lawyers were waiting in the wings to talk to Spector. “I don’t know if I’ll stay on the case or not,” Plourd told Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler. He said that San Francisco attorney Dennis Riordan, who joined the team in its last weeks, will stay on to handle legal motions but not as trial counsel. Spector did not attend Wednesday’s hearing. The 67-year-old record producer is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of actress Lana Clarkson. last_img read more

Interview and Interrogation Training: Backing Out of the Interview

first_imgThis week’s International Association of Interviewers interview and interrogation training tip provided by Wicklander-Zulawski, has Tammy Clark, CFI, CFE discussing how to back out of the interview.As you may be aware, there are a number of reasons why we may want to back out of an interview, including safety concerns, medical issues, time, continuous denials, and, of course, if your subject is innocent.We should always treat everyone with dignity and respect. We don’t want the employee to cause any additional issues should and when they return to work. One way to accomplish this is by using the selective interview, which allows the subject to feel like they are part of the process.- Sponsor – Once you realize that you need to back out of the interview, you may pull out the selective interview form from your case file and start asking the subject questions like, “Who could have done this?” Who would you vouch for?” and “Who had the best opportunity?” Asking the subject these questions allows them to feel like they are part of the investigative process, while also giving them time to relax before they return to work.As always, be sure that you follow any and all company policies that are in place throughout the process.Every loss prevention investigator should continuously strive to enhance their investigative interviewing skills as part of an ongoing commitment to best-in-class interviewing performance.

But I prefer the four attackers we have. I do not see today the possibility that we stay with five attackers because it is a particular position. “We have four good attackers.

Le gouvernement annonce des emplois dété pour les étudiants

first_imgLe gouvernement a annoncé, aujourd’hui 4 mars, qu’il embauchera plus de 150 étudiants à l’échelle de la province pendant le printemps et l’été. Plus de 80 postes seront affichés en ligne aujourd’hui. D’autres étudiants seront embauchés pour des stages et des placements dans le cadre de programmes d’enseignement coopératif directement en collaboration avec les établissements d’enseignement, et d’autres seront de retour dans des emplois d’été pour lesquels ils ont déjà postulé avec succès. « Nous souhaitons que les jeunes Néo-Écossais soient au courant des possibilités intéressantes d’emploi ici, chez eux, souligne Labi Kousoulis, ministre de la Commission de la fonction publique de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Ces emplois aideront les jeunes à acquérir de l’expérience de travail et à économiser pour leurs études. Ces emplois sont aussi avantageux pour nous en raison de la créativité, des nouvelles idées et de l’enthousiasme que les jeunes apportent au travail. » Les 80 postes à pourvoir sont répartis à l’échelle de la province, et incluent une vaste gamme d’emplois, par exemple des conseillers de camp, des travailleurs en ressources forestières ou des techniciens d’entretien d’aéronef. Tous les emplois sont réservés aux étudiants. On encourage les étudiants des universités et des collèges et les élèves du deuxième cycle du secondaire à présenter une demande. Il s’agit d’une autre étape pour assurer l’embauche d’un plus grand nombre de jeunes travailleurs dans la fonction publique de la Nouvelle-Écosse. En novembre, plus de 70 postes de la fonction publique ont été annoncés, exigeant aucune expérience ou une expérience minimale. Au cours des cinq prochaines années, cinq pour cent des nouveaux employés du gouvernement provincial seront des jeunes travailleurs. Tout cela fait partie de l’initiative « Make it Here » qui établit des liens entre les jeunes travailleurs et les programmes du gouvernement en matière d’éducation, de formation et d’entrée sur le marché du travail. L’initiative offre également aux employeurs du soutien pour l’embauche ou la formation de jeunes travailleurs ou de travailleurs avec peu d’expérience. « Nous voulons voir un plus grand nombre de jeunes s’installer et travailler en Nouvelle-Écosse, affirme Kelly Regan, ministre responsable de la Jeunesse. Nous avons des programmes qui aident des centaines de jeunes à accéder à de bons emplois ici, chez eux. Nous donnons l’exemple et nous encourageons les employeurs à embaucher de jeunes diplômés, d’assurer le mentorat des apprentis et d’offrir aux étudiants davantage de possibilités d’apprentissage en cours d’emploi. » L’une des personnes invitées à l’annonce aujourd’hui était Jennifer West, préposée au service de la paie au ministère des Services internes. Elle a débuté sa carrière au sein de la fonction publique à titre d’étudiante en 2012. « Le fait de travailler au sein du gouvernement pendant mes études m’a permis d’acquérir de l’expérience pratique, affirme Mme West. J’ai été en mesure de mettre en application ce que j’ai appris en classe, directement dans mon environnement de travail. Cette expérience m’a aidée à obtenir un poste à temps plein au sein de la fonction publique quelques années plus tard, et elle m’aide toujours aujourd’hui. » Pour voir les postes annoncés aujourd’hui ainsi que les autres possibilités d’emploi dans la fonction publique, consultez le http://makeithere.novascotia.ca (en anglais seulement).last_img read more

Liberal promise to set strict rules for unpaid interns pushed to 2019

first_imgOTTAWA – Justin Trudeau’s Liberals won’t make good on their vow to crack down on unpaid internships until next year — almost four years after the issue first landed on the federal government’s agenda.In the 2017 budget, the Liberals promised to eliminate unpaid internships in federally regulated workplaces — the only exception being student placements required as part of a school course. Interns would be treated like regular employees, with the same work hours and under the same safety regulations.Officials now say it will be fall of 2019 — right when the next federal election is expected — when they unveil the final set of regulations, at which time those groups pushing for an end to unpaid internships will find out when the rules come into force.Cabinet will have the final say on when the rules come into effect.“Once the legislation was amended, most people assumed you couldn’t do this anymore,” said Hassan Yussuff, president of the Canadian Labour Congress.“I don’t know why they haven’t put forth the regulations on this because they were very clear. Immediately after they got elected, they acted on it.”Since coming to office, the Liberals have touted spending aimed at creating more jobs for young people — notably doubling funding for the Canada Summer Jobs program, and putting money into creating internships and apprenticeships — hoping to meet campaign promises that won over many young voters.NDP jobs critic Niki Ashton accused the Liberals of being “all talk and no action” on an issue of vital importance to young Canadians.“There’s no excuse for not making a change sooner.”The previous Conservative government promised changes to labour laws to protect unpaid interns as part of their 2015 budget, but the rules were never implemented.The Liberals revived the proposal in December 2015, weeks after taking office, and faced opposition to its plan to allow unpaid work for up to four months full-time or up to a year part-time. The Canadian Intern Association dropped out of consultations, students mounted protests and labour groups demanded the whole process be restarted.When Patty Hajdu became labour minister in early 2017, her mandate letter called for updating labour standards “to address emerging issues such as unpaid internships.”The government’s second budget bill last year deleted part of the Canada Labour Code that provided an allowance for unpaid internships in certain cases, but left an existing exception for educational placements intact.In a statement, Hajdu said the government was committed to consulting Canadians on the changes before they are implemented.“Young Canadians need meaningful work experience to start strong in their careers, but unpaid internships can be unfair and exploitative,” she said.“We will eliminate unpaid internships in federally regulated sectors where they are not part of a formal educational program during this mandate.”A new round of consultations is set to launch next month and run into the fall to coincide with talks about new unpaid leaves for family reasons, traditional Indigenous practices, and victims of family violence.“While we’re encouraged that the federal government is finally moving forward on addressing unpaid internships within federally regulated employers, we’re also concerned that the timelines are excessive and push any concrete action into 2019 or 2020,” said Andrew Langille, counsel for the Canadian Intern Association.“The commitment to tackle unpaid internships was made during the 2015 election and one would think four years would be enough time to tackle a straightforward regulatory change.”Ashton said some schools are avoiding unpaid internships for students. Even so, she said, some young people believe unpaid work is the only way they can get job experience and a foothold in the labour market.Last week’s latest jobs figures from Statistics Canada showed an 11.7 per cent unemployment rate for workers age 15 to 24 — almost twice the national average of six per cent and up from May’s rate of 11.1 per cent.— Follow @jpress on Twitterlast_img read more
