Why I Look for Longevity on Resumes

first_imgThis post appeared on LaSalle Network’s blog. More and more hiring managers no longer view longevity on a résumé as a positive attribute. Some believe it indicates the employee lacks diverse work experience; others that the employee is complacent or is afraid of change. This could very well be the case, but to me (and I may be coming from an old school of thought), stability on a résumé is something that hiring managers should still value. It can demonstrate loyalty, dependability, expertise and commitment.More specifically, here is how I evaluate longevity in a potential employee, in an attempt to see if it should be embraced, rather than dismissed.Accomplishment of long-term goals. Longevity is an opportunity to measure if someone was able to set and achieve long-term goals. If an employee has been with a company 5, 10 or 15 years, I look to see where they have taken their career during that time. Have they been promoted, or have they grown in their role and been given more responsibility? Have they earned new degrees or certifications? Have they become involved in industry associations or developed their personal brand?Developed thought leadership. The longer someone is with a company the better they are able to truly understand the industry, business and the role. They can better develop their thought leadership within the space and share that knowledge. This is something job hoppers, who spend mere months at a company, aren’t likely to provide.Meaningful relationships. Longevity shows me that someone was able to commit to working with individuals and within groups and has developed meaningful relationships with others, both internally and externally if they were client-facing.Culture. Someone who spent substantial time with a company may have seen the culture shift and the adjustments that came as a result of that. They are able to bring that perspective to the new organization with deep understanding and relevant examples of how to handle any upcoming changes in culture.All this is not to say that people with “hoppy” résumés are not good hires. Many have legitimate reasons for shorter stints with previous employers. It may be that they had to take time off to care for a relative, or the company had bad management, so they quit after a short period of time. It happens. But if the candidate has a new job every two to three years, that tells me a couple of things: 1) They leave when there is conflict, and 2) They value short-term money over long-term opportunity.Most leaders don’t want to spend time and money training and developing someone who is going to take what they learn elsewhere after one year. It doesn’t make sense from a productivity and monetary standpoint. If you overlook longevity, your hire may soon hop away from your organization, too.last_img read more

Rio Ferdinand hates Mourinhos constant modifications

first_imgManchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, spoke ironically when he realized that Jose Mourinho was lining up a very different starting XI vs Arsenal.One of the biggest complaints coming from people like Rio Ferdinand about Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, is the fact that the Red Devils don’t have a defined style of play or a base line up.For this Wednesday’s crucial match against Arsenal at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho decided to sit down players like Paul Pogba or Romalu Lukaku and didn’t even use them until the second half.The Portuguese manager has been sparring with his players in the last few weeks over different subjects, the manager allegedly has a very bad relationship with several of these professionals and seems to be counting the hours until Manchester United actually gets sacked by Ed Woodward.This Wednesday’s match against Arsenal was crucial for the club’s wishes to stay relevant in the competition, but Jose Mourinho’s initial lineup gave Rio Ferdinand the idea that they didn’t really care for getting the win at Old Trafford against Unai Emery’s Gunners.1⃣3⃣.7⃣6⃣That’s the number of seconds between our kick-off and @JesseLingard’s goal. 👊 pic.twitter.com/0CR4vKbICT— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 5, 2018Rio’s initial reaction as the transmission was ongoing for BT Sport, was to gasp on the very moment that he realized how many of the starring players were on the bench for such an important match.“Some bench there, I have to say. They’ve got a great bench with [Romelu] Lukaku, [Juan] Mata, [Paul] Pogba, [Marouane] Fellaini. I mean, phenomenal,” joked Rio Ferdinand as quoted by Goal.“Yeah, he’s made changes, and after seeing the performance on the weekend against Southampton I agree with him, they needed to be some changes within that team, and as drastic as they are, it will remain to be seen if that ’s the right decision.”“Listen, something needs to be done. The common thing that we’ve seen with this team under Mourinho is changes every week – changes, changes, changes.”“That doesn’t bode well for me in terms of for the players and for the team because you need to form relationship within a team and you can’t do that when there’s chopping and changing week in and week out,” he added.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Head to our official app to read Jose’s thoughts on tonight’s dramatic game. #MUFC— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 5, 2018The match itself was quite entertaining, the first half started with a terrible mistake committed by David de Gea in which he failed to stop a shot from a distance and the goal line technology condemned him to give Arsenal the lead.It took the Red Devils only a few minutes to respond through Anthony Martial’s goal, he received a cross from Ander Herrera from the left after Marcos Rojo’s free-kick effort forced the goalkeeper to spit the ball out.These two goals happened during the first half hour of the game, the following 15 minutes were filled with fouls and bookings from both sides as they completely forgot to play football until the second half.When the two clubs returned to the pitch for the second half, Marcos Rojo made a terrible mistake that ended in the Argentine scoring an own goal, he was seen very upset for his error after he was replaced by Marouane Fellaini in the second half.But the hero of the night was Jesse Lingard, who managed to score the equalizer with 20 minutes still on the clock.It was a very competitive match, but we also ask ourselves why so many great players were left on the bench by Mourinho.Watch all the goals from a pulsating night at Old Trafford. #MUFC— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 6, 2018Why do you think Mourinho left so many players on the bench tonight at Old Trafford?
