It’s Time For A Mid-Year Diagnostics Assessment of Your Recruiting Activities

Top Recruiting Metrics That Every Manager Should Have On Their Dashboard

You’ve just entered the back half of the year, and whether it’s 2019 or 2030, it’s still time for a mid-year review of your recruiting metrics and how your team has fared since the beginning of the year.

Previously, our team created a list of the top hiring metrics that every manager should have on their dashboard. You can see that information here. While we review these metrics constantly, we take extra time to review them at the end of June to ensure we are providing the highest level of service to our clients possible. We look for trends that could mean changes in the market, we look for best practices some recruiters are using and implement them company wide, and we look for gaps in our training that have to be fixed in order to reach our goals for the year.

This is not only a recruiting exercise. This is something that can and should be done in every sales environment across every product or se

7 Ways of Breaking Out with Boldness | CERCA Talent

It is to Be Bold.

We began this agency to help the best companies in the diagnostics industry dramatically accelerate their results. To do that, everyday, we recall the critical importance of boldness, courage and audacity.

When you consistently demonstrate bold and courageous behavior and deliver quality results with speed, you quickly begin to outperform those who do not. Boldness is a highly effective asset for achieving anything.

So, what do we mean by boldness? Boldness is the act of responding to a situation in a manner that may be viewed as daring to some yet truly is essential to most effectively address the issue at hand. To reach the upper echelons, you must reject there is any value in playing small, you must thrive under pressure, and you must dare to take big risks and create the actions others are just too afraid to attempt.

Boldness is a rare approach to any given situation that requires great situational awareness, courage and craftiness. It means having the ch

The Decision to Exceed Expectations | CERCA Talent+

Continuing with the week’s theme of being a professional, consider what it takes to be a dominant force in any endeavor.

As we watch or play sports, we all know there are victories, and then there are V I C T O R I E S. Being a football fan, last year’s NCAA season gave us some incredible wins: like West Point barely falling to Number five Oklahoma in OT, Stanford’s OT win against Oregon, or LSU’s 7OT Record-setting loss to A&M. The close ones that excite and surprise us are worth the price of admission. Then there is utter domination – Florida chomping UT with the most points they’ve ever scored at Neyland and Clemson’s record-setting romping of Bama to close the FBS season. We always want the latter for our team.

We will talk about those wonderfully exciting, record breaking wins for years to come. Yet, no matter what sport you follow, you will also always remember the many times a hyped performance does not meet expectations. Super Bowls are often not so super.

Voices: Living with Schizophrenia

words to video below for the hearing impaired

MICHELLE HAMMER: Hi. I’m Michele Hammer and I have schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a mental illness that changes the way you think, feel, and act. It’s broken down into three separate categories, positive, negative, and cognitive. Positive symptoms don’t mean they’re a good thing. It’s an add-on to your normal behavior, things like hallucinations, delusions, and voices. SPEAKER 1: You know, I had so many ghosts and shadows inside of my mind. SPEAKER 2: A demon was perching on the end of my bed. MICHELLE HAMMER: Negative symptoms take away from your behavior. SPEAKER 3: I showed no emotion and I was just totally out of it. MICHELLE HAMMER: Cognitive symptoms make it hard to pay attention and hard to focus. SPEAKER 4: Your brain is just racing. It can’t stop. SPEAKER 5: The pathology of these illnesses has only become recently understood. MICHELLE HAMMER: Schizophrenia’s different for everyone. My symptoms aren’t like everybody else’s. My first symptom of schizophrenia was pretty much just zoning out, thinking I was in a different place.

Then, it turned into kind of voices in my head. They just plagued me over and over again. I thought my mother was trying to hurt me. I didn’t know what to do about anything, because I thought everyone had it out for me. So I didn’t know who to go to for help. Sometimes I kind of hear a voice more coming from the right side of my head saying, like– Everyone hates you. Stop what you’re doing. Don’t do anything. Nothing. While there’s kind of like the other side of me that’s kind of arguing back with the voice. Don’t worry about anything. Chill. Just chill. Breathe. Chill. Just chill. You can get through it. And it’s kind of just like the thing is who’s gonna win, who’s gonna win, who’s gonna win.

When I take my medicine, the good side wins. I mean, living in the city and having schizophrenia is interesting, just because I do hear voices as I’m walking down the street. So in my head I’m thinking of the person talking to me. But then, I start talking back to the person. And then, maybe I’ll snap out of it, look around, and like five people are staring at me. But mostly I kind of just get plagued by thoughts that are just so repetitive in my head and they just go around over and over and over again, when really you just want them to be nice and quiet and silent.

All through high school, I had this really crazy paranoid delusion that my mother was trying to kill me. Every time she went to try to get me to a therapist or anything, because she knew something wasn’t right, I always thought she was trying to ruin my life. So when I went to college, I thought I was free of her. And everything was great. And then, all of a sudden, my best friend, my roommate, I started thinking the exact same things about her. So realizing that I had the problem was, like, the start of the entire thing. And that was the hardest thing to do, I think, realizing there was a problem.

At 18, I was told I was bipolar. But I kind of knew that diagnosis was incorrect. So at 22, I spoke to a different doctor. And I was more honest with him and he diagnosed me with schizophrenia. And that was like the best thing that ever happened to me, because he got me on the right medication and I feel as good as I can possibly feel right now. SPEAKER 2: I finally told a therapist about what was going on with me. I had all these problems and I finally had a name for them. SPEAKER 6: Over time, we’ve realized that mental illness is nothing more than physical illness.

Talk to as many people as you can. Don’t be ashamed. Don’t be judgmental. MICHELLE HAMMER: I see a psychiatrist every other week. And we just kind of talk about things that are going on. Mostly I just share really silly stories with him and we just laugh a lot, when really he’s measuring just my mood. That’s what I know that he’s doing.

For my medication, I take seven daily medications, six in the morning and one at night. The ones in the morning just get me ready for the day, get me focused, make it so I can get out of bed without having a horrible day. And the one at night just keeps me kind of level, knocks me out, and let me have a good sleep without completely panicking in the middle of the night. SPEAKER 2: It can be very lonely having schizophrenia, the paranoia, the fear, the voices, everything that goes along with it. SPEAKER 5: The compliance with medications is gonna ultimately lead to a recovery and your son or daughter can not only be OK, but they can be great again.

MICHELLE HAMMER: It took a process of almost 10 years to get me on the right medication. But I’m glad that I finally am. People think that just because you’re on medicine that the voices will completely stop. But you just can’t stop the voices. With medication, it’s more positive listening. It’s more just zoning out. As long as I’m not thinking of negative, horrible things. SPEAKER 7: My soul was leaking out of my body. SPEAKER 1: I just saw a human being, empty. MICHELLE HAMMER: I’m good. So you can’t turn the voices off. You can just make them to what you prefer to hear. SPEAKER 1: Be conscious of something that will take your attention from that negative situation into a positive one. And you know, it takes a lot of discipline, but little by little, it becomes a habit. MICHELLE HAMMER: One in five New Yorkers has a mental health issue, but people don’t talk about it, because of all the stigma.

SPEAKER 3: There is still a lot of stigma, but people are starting to understand it a little bit better. MICHELLE HAMMER: Kind of like a big reason why I started my clothing line was that I was on the subway and I looked down the subway train and there was a homeless schizophrenic guy just talking to himself. And I noticed it was the same exact mannerisms as I do it.

So I kind thought to myself, what’s the difference between me and this guy. And I realized if I didn’t have my friends, my family, my doctor I could so easily be in his position. Part of the reason I started my whole business was to just tell everybody that I have schizophrenia. Showing people you can live a completely normal life, medicated, and be a completely normal person. And my whole thing is, if everyone would just kind of tell people that they have a mental illness, there wouldn’t be so much a stigma. There really shouldn’t be any stigma. That needs to go away. Mental illness is so common. How can there be so much stigma? So I kind of wanted to do something that could raise awareness, give back to the mentally ill, homeless community, and just kind of make a difference. Hi. How are you guys doing? Schizophrenic NYC was all made by me, schizophrenic New Yorker, trying to change the way New York City sees mental health, especially the mentally ill homeless. Donate a portion of the profits to help them out.

Yeah. I just pack up my bag. I wheel it over to my shop every Saturday. And I just sell my merch. And I talk to amazing people. Yesterday, I met two people that work in a psych ward. We had the greatest conversation about psych wards. They totally bought something from me and they took my card and they’re like, we love what you’re doing. This is so great. Mental health professionals love what I’m doing.

They always think it’s great. I’ve gotten negative reactions. Like one lady came up to my booth last year and says, I can’t believe you would name a business this. This is offensive and I’m a mental health advocate and this is offensive. And she took my flyer and ran away. And I was like, can I tell you about it. I’m a mental health advocate too. And she just ran away. And I was like, isn’t that stigma? Aren’t you judging me before I even tell you about it? Stigma right there. This shirt’s pretty awesome. It’s not a delusion. You are incredible. Some common questions that I get is what medications are you on. Mostly by people in the mental health field.

They want to know. Other common questions are like how to handle somebody in a crisis. I mean, definitely never tell them that they’re wrong. Don’t try to take away their feelings. You always have to be sympathetic. I would try to convince them that they should seek professional help. Find a good doctor. Find the meds that work. If you try hard enough and you really want to fix it, you can. Don’t take your medication, feel better, and then think you don’t need your medication anymore. It took a lot of pride that I had to say, I need medication and I’m just gonna take it. SPEAKER 2: My advice to someone who’s going through it is be honest. If you keep telling people you’re fine, they’ll believe it. SPEAKER 1: I believe there is a component beyond medical treatment that it has to be with education and creating positive voices that can influence and override the negative ones. SPEAKER 8: Just because they have schizophrenia, doesn’t mean that they can’t be someone who will contribute to society, who can make the world a better place.

Top 6 Reasons Why You Should Consider Polished Concrete

1. Zero impact on the environment

Well maybe not zero, but very little. Imagine you bought a warehouse that you are going to convert to apartments. Very cool idea and gaining ground in urban areas. After figuring out your budget, you decide on how to divide up the space, you pick out finishes, and do all of the things that you need to do.

Everything that is going to go into that remodel will have some impact on the environment. Drywall must be manufactured, as does paint, nails, and screws. How about the lumber that needs to be installed? Trees needs to be harvested for that.

Then what to do with the floor. Carpet? Tile? Hardwood? These choices all have an environmental impact.

If you consider the impact that polished concrete has it is very minimal. Polished concrete is using a machine to process the concrete slab until the desired finish and gloss is achieved.

You can create a focal point with your floor without installing anything. Best of all the floor will last

Biotech Recruiter – 7+ Horrible Mistakes You Are Making When Hiring

Here are a few common hiring mistakes:

There is a lot of talk about how people should trust their gut and go with their first impression. That might work in other areas of life, but it is rarely a good idea when it comes to hiring an employee. Whether a hiring manager personally likes a job candidate has no bearing on that individual having the right qualifications for the job or fitting into company culture. In the BioTech and Diagnostics Industries where Cerca Talent recruits, one professional could be responsible for a territory that’s worth $20MM or more in annual revenue. Hiring a “great guy” or “super woman” for the job might lead to a dismal failure if they do not have the skills and background to succeed in the role.
Although companies have a number of options to find qualified candidates, they often rely on job boards alone to bring in resumes — theirs or paid postings. They also tend to overlook the importance of diversity in the workforce. Active recrui

Why drug testing needs to improve with Cancer

Researchers keep on developing new drugs to fight cancer, and while some are indeed effective, others never fulfill their promise. A new study now explains why many cancer drugs may not work in the way their developers think they do. But within the problem also lies the solution.

A new study finds that many new cancer drugs may not work as intended.

Cancer affects millions of people around the world, and in some cases, it does not respond to the forms of therapy that doctors usually prescribe.

For this reason, researchers keep on looking for ever more effective drugs that can stop cancer in its tracks. Sometimes, these new therapeutics live up to their developers’ expectations, while at other times they fall short.

As the search for improved anticancer drugs continues, a new study has discovered that many of the new medications that do work often target different mechanisms than those the scientists intended them for.

This may also explain why many new drugs fail to work.

There is a New Blood Test That Could Help People At Risk of Cancer Avoid Unnecessary Biopsy

A new blood test that looks for circulating tumor cells could significantly improve the diagnosis of prostate cancer and avoid unnecessary biopsies and treatments.

A new blood test could help many people at risk of prostate cancer avoid unnecessary biopsies.

Combining the new test with prostate specific antigen (PSA) results can yield a diagnosis of aggressive prostate cancer that is more than 90% accurate, according to a Journal of Urology study.

This level of accuracy is higher than that of any other biomarker for prostate cancer, says senior and corresponding study author Dr. Yong-Jie Lu, a professor of molecular oncology at the Barts Cancer Institute of Queen Mary University of London in the United Kingdom.

“This could lead to a paradigm shift in the way we diagnose prostate cancer,” he adds.

Circulating tumor cells are cancer cells that have left the original tumor and entered the bloodstream. Once cancer cells are in the bloodstream, they can spread to other parts of the

You’ve Been Downsized From Your Oncology Diagnostics Marketing Position? Now what?

Oh my! You have just learned that your job has been eliminated or you’ve been demoted from your current role. What do you do? First of all, try not to panic.

Downsizing does happen… but not to me, you say? This is probably no comfort, but downsizing is not uncommon, and it can happen to anyone. So, take some deep breaths and move past the denial stage.

Classic burger joint coming soon to Medical Lake

Medical Lake burger lovers prepare your palates – good things may be coming your way.

Debi Long and her husband Joe, of Ruby’s on Silver Lake, are working feverishly to open a new classic 50s-style, family hamburger restaurant at 711 East Lake St. they will be calling Jake’s.

“I’m just trying to help get this stuff going for her,” Joe said in the middle of working on an exhaust hood in the kitchen during a recent phone interview

The Long’s have been remodeling the restaurant’s interior from scratch, according to building owner Miranda Spilker.

“It was a completely empty building when I bought it,” Spilker said of the property she purchased about a year ago and is now leasing to the Longs.

According to local lore, the building has in the past housed the Donut Depot, the Emporium – called either a junk shop or antique store, depending on the person describing it – and a former local gas station and convenience store called Snode’s, where some locals recall buying penny candy as kids

How Building Trust Creates Confidence In Genomic and Diagnostic Recruiting

How Building Trust Creates Confidence In Genomic and Diagnostic Recruiting

“I trust you.”

For many of us, these words are something abstract — a rather fluffy, sometimes fuzzy thing. Yet, trust is not some soft, ethereal or elusive quality you either have or do not. Rather, trust is a pragmatic, tangible, actionable asset that must be developed, and you can create it much faster than you might believe possible. This is important, as transcendent values, like trust and integrity, literally translate into profits and prosperity in whatever way you count real value.

In the end, we only work with those we know, like and TRUST. When you trust others, you feel assured in their abilities to do something or to remain true to and steadfast in a partnership. When you trust a brand or a product, you see it as reliable and dependable.

Simply put, trust is confidence. It is the ability to depend on the integrity, strength and skill of another to perform as promised and keep us informed o
