Linkedin Guide

LinkedIn Guide – By Bob Hoffman

Like it or not, LinkedIn has a near monopoly on networking in the workplace and is one of the main tools for recruitment. I understand why Microsoft bought it (great tool to plug into Outlook) but it also raises the fear that Microsoft will turn it into ‘bloatware’ and over complicate it. Either way, you need an effective LinkedIn profile in general and in particular when you are looking for a career change. I joined LinkedIn in 2003 and was one of the first in the country, here are some of my views:   Photo - A good photo is vital.…
Interview Guide

Interview Guide – By Bob Hoffman

An interview is a very artificial way for people to get to know each other and there is a move towards a more ‘real world’ type of meeting including a ‘walk in the park‘ final interview where you do not  actually meet in an office at all. Here are some pointers and some thoughts for you, if you are called for an interview. It is important that you realise an interview is a two way street and you are there to learn as much as possible about the people, the role of the job and most importantly the culture of…
Cv Guide

CV Guide – By Bob Hoffman

Here is a short guide to help you write a CV that will have the most impact. A CV (short for the Latin phrase curriculum vitae, which means “course of life”) is a detailed document highlighting your professional and academic history. Or in plain English, it should tell a short story of you and your work life. 1. Brevity - There are 100’s of different opinions out there about CV’s but the most consistent one is brevity. The golden rule, in my opinion, is keep it to two pages. Let’s be clear about this, the sole purpose of the CV is to…
Effective Recruitment

What is the biggest threat to effective recruitment? By Bob Hoffman

There is an old adage that says that most projects tend to come in over budget and usually late! This can be due to unforeseen circumstances but in most cases, just poor planning. Recruitment, whether it is for one person or fifty is effectively a project and thus needs to be planned. I would also suggest that because of its nature, recruitment projects are exceptionally intricate because they are dealing with the most complex component of all…….people.   So the biggest threat to effective recruitment is time. If you are planning on doing the recruitment yourself, many companies underestimate how…

Covid-19 and Irish Telecoms Industry

How will Covid-19 affect the Irish Telecoms sector? By Bob Hoffman

In summary, this terrible Pandemic will have a very positive effect on the Irish Telecoms sector in the short to medium term. One thing that 2020 will teach us in Ireland is that the Healthcare and Telecom/ICT sectors are vital industries for the security and well-being of us as a nation. Although we are a long way from emerging out of the Pandemic, even at this stage, there would seem to be many lessons to be learnt and trends and predictions to make. Let’s be clear before we start as to the difference between Telecoms and the ICT industry. There…

Two Critical Industries Pic #1

Our two most critical industries? (by Bob Hoffman, Owner)

By Bob Hoffman, Owner Telecomjobs.ie The most important sector in Ireland at the moment is clearly that of healthcare sector. But we mustn’t overlook the extent to which it is underpinned and supported by the technology sector. Our healthcare sector is saving lives during the Covid-19 pandemic, while the technology sector is enabling the healthcare professionals to do their job. And in a much broader sense, the technology sector is keeping the entire economy moving. The world has moved into the Digital Era in a way we now hardly question. But it’s at times like this that we realise if…
