Universities & innovative companies show the way for modern HR

Few days remain until the first of the three events of the Santa Monica Job Fair powered by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and the Mayor of Santa Monica Ted Winter starts and already some important facts are becoming obvious. South California Universities and some very innovative companies showed the greater interest, and in some cases officially supported the Private Sector Jobs & Internships event.

Another interesting finding was that companies in sectors that could be described as more “traditional” were reluctant to test Team Plus HR recruiting system that matches potential candidates to specific job openings. There is no doubt that HR is very important and part of the capital of a company. Αbility, experience and knowledge of each employee contribute to the growth and development of the company and talented people can bring an added value to the enterprise.

Experience and instinct of the recruiter are of course indispensable but in most cases the recruiter has limited time to sort through all applications and match the qualifications for each applicant to the specific requirements of the job opening. Thus, it is frequent that some talents are disqualified long before they reach the interview phase. This is where a sophisticated HR recruitment system can make the difference and highlight a possible talent that could be lost as an asset to the company.

Defining talent on experience or education leaves no room for innovation or for genuinity.
We have to promote freedom of expression and intelligent creativity. 
That is what success is all about!

Until now over 500 job seekers have registered for the Santa Monica Private Sector Jobs & Internships event. The level of support from companies and institutions is also growing and now includes Santa Monica College, California Lutheran University, ENKI Technologies, Expert Dojo, General Assembly, Technical Connections, the Santa Monica Place and more.

Wizards and Rainbows

Simplification can’t be good. What is simple and easy going now some years ago needed a tremendous effort!

What has changed? Evolution! “Simple as that”. We do not need any more to travel from LA to London a year or two but 10 hours tops! We complain that our coffee is not having enough or has too many grains of sugar, but we forget that we still enjoy having it. It used to be called luxury having a cappuccino and only to be found in Italy ( Illy coffee is the best btw! ).

We use each day computers, smartphones, pads, e-book readers, monitoring our health with gadgets, but we are still scared that AI will bring humanity down.

So what about the aliens? We forgot that they are the biggest threat of all?

Short tale: Devil was in a market. He could purchase anything to control humanity. But one. He gazed on the most unappealing, gray and sad thing. The Ultimate Weapon of all. FEAR!!!

Targets Success

Today, I would like to share some lines of my new book under publication.

Young. I am. I always have been.
The sky I touch. I wanted to reach it.
Now. I want to live it all.  “I” is so confused with all as all is “I”.
I see. The clouds. The Sun. The Sea.
I see. The limits in mind. Illusions of mine.
I see. You and Me simply be. 

We assume limits are real. What are your achievements this year? Did you have goals when you started this year? Have you succeeded in your goals already? Strategy can be separated into three basic steps:

  • definition
  • plan
  • action

There is no achievement without these steps. Though, there is a trick. You may say that your plan for this year was to reach figure A, and, for next year, to reach figure B. But, who is holding you back from bringing results that are twice or even three times B. Only yourself! Think harder. There is no limit other than the one you set.

And remember all your efforts should be directed on one and only one major accomplishment: your happiness!
