I recently attended the 2018 HR Florida State Conference. Since this was my fourth year in attendance, I felt like I had a pretty good idea of what to expect.

The Marketing Mix in Talent Acquisition



Marketing 101 was all about the 4 P’s: Product, Price, Promotion and Place. I was fascinated to find out that there were additional 3 P’s in Services Marketing 201: People, Physical Evidence and Processes. The most important being the People, because without this specific “P” it isn’t easy to render a service.

We are service providers. Through a well put together process, we enable organisations to reach their desired goals by putting the right people into the right roles.

When putting together...

#Nextchat: The Recruiter’s Handbook




Many will tell you that recruiting is the most important function in an organization because it’s where potential new employees meet an entire organization for the very first time—and through one person.

The recruiting function has changed drastically over the past 10 years due to technology and workplace and workforce trends. Employers are finding that, to remain competitive, they must increase their...


#Create: Best Job Ever!



If you follow me on social media (@ChrisOrozco72), you’ve probably seen my emotional and proud posts describing my son’s new journey as a kindergarten student. While recently attending back-to-school night, his teacher talked with parents about the learning adventure our children are beginning. I could see the passion she has about the impact she will have on her students. This is best summed up by her comment on how she feels about the...


Fact or Fiction: The ADA requires accommodating an employee to care for a relative with a disability?



That’s right folks. It’s time for another edition of “Fact or Fiction”  

Here’s the fact pattern with which we will work today.

  • You hire someone new for a full-time 8-hr/day 40-hr/week position.
  • A few weeks later, your new employee requests a part-time work schedule so that he can spend extra time caring for his daughter who is suffering from [insert name of disability].
  • Because he is a new hire, this employee is not FMLA-eligible, but his daughter definitely has a disability.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act requires you to accommodate

The Most Popular Entry-Level Jobs and How to Land One




The curse “may you live in interesting times” could apply to this year’s college graduating class. Unemployment is at its lowest point in decades and new technology has disrupted nearly every major industry. But the curse may actually be a blessing in disguise.

Embarking on a new career in this type of environment can be both rewarding and surprising, as new career paths open up and traditional ones take on different forms. Ideally, entry-level job seekers will seek roles that provide growth potential regardless of the changing labor market.
