The Human Web..
If a person is 1 step away from each person they know and 2 steps away from each person who is known by one of the people they know, then everyone is at most 6 steps away from any other person on Earth.
Our belief is that the best Candidates and the best opportunities come from networking, rather than job boards, newspaper ads, and postings. Here at The Lakeside Group Assoc, we receive dozens of excellent referrals every week. We work only with top professionals in the industry which benefits everyone in our network. In turn, we also have an excellent network of Client companies throughout the U.S. and speak with many decision makers every day. However, we don’t try to be everything to everyone. Because of our heavy concentration in the Aerospace, Defense, and Alternative Energy industries, we are experts in this niche. We keep our network posted on opportunities and even try to connect folks in the network who may benefit by knowing each other.
It is our goal is to change the perception that one’s career is the defining factor of their success. Genuine success is measured in several aspects of one’s life, which is why we offer our Changing Tides section alongside our career resources. We also realize that a career change may mean a deeper impact on you and your family such as finding new doctors, exploring school systems, researching community statistics, re-evaluating finances, the list goes on! This section is meant to provide resources for everyday life, and can be beneficial to anyone, even those not in the process of a career change.
Gallup reports that over 70% of the workforce is "Not Engaged” or “Actively Disengaged” in their current position.
Yikes! That’s a startling statistic! That’s why we are here to help both “Active” and “Passive” Candidates. Also, we are very careful with confidentiality and would never jeopardize your current situation. In fact, many of our referrals are even “confidentially referred” (mum’s the word!).
“Note: please don't misconstrue my 14 jobs as 'job-hopping’. I have never quit a job”
We see LOTS of resumes! Many that contain errors, bad wording, or just a boring format. While they do make us chuckle, they are probably not going to be funny to a Hiring Manager. Did you know that 47% of executives say that just one typo in a resume is cause to not consider a candidate for a position in their company, and another 37% said two typos would automatically send the resume into the nearest waste paper basket. Only 6% would consider candidates with 4 or more typos in their resumes. Our goal is to help watch for these “resume blunders” and present the best possible YOU to our Clients! We are also happy to refer a great resume writer, check out our Changing Tides section.
You Have Mail…
Hey, we realize that the #1 complaint when working with a recruiter is the terrible lack of follow up! Well…not with us! As a matter of fact, you may actually get tired of our emails that say, “Hi John… Hope you’re having a good day. I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know that I am still waiting for feedback from XXX Company. I’ll be in touch soon!”
