It’s hard, if not impossible, to make the hiring process a science. While establishing a systematic approach to hiring can and will improve the outcomes, there is still an art to choosing your next new hire.
Every artist has theories about why one hiring selection goes smoothly and another one does not, but as any good manager can tell you, it is all about timing. Like all theories, they get debated and passed around. Over time, they can become codified and cast in cement, when actually they should be cast out the window.
Here is a look at three common misconceptions about hiring that you might not realize are making the job selection process harder, not easier.
I Will Find the Perfect Candidate
Like a good manager or recruiter, you have put together a full list of criteria and a comprehensive job description. Do you see it
Few of us are experts at resume writing, but when you’re trying to secure that ideal Genetics Sales job you just heard about, you’ll need to up your game and prepare the perfect sales resume to get the attention of a hiring manager or genetics recruiter. What exactly is it that captures the attention of hiring managers?
Your resume needs to be professional, persuasive, and directly on point. It’s the very first glimpse a hiring manager will have of you, and as the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
Your goal with a resume is to catch the attention of a hiring manager, so that he/she will be intrigued enough to pass your resume on to the next person higher up in the hiring process. Once you get to that step, it’s likely you’ll be called in for an interview, and that will call for a whole different set of skills.
Everything you need to create the perfect sales resume is described below, so even if you’re not an expert at resume wr
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
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

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.
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

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.
