They travel through space and “suck” up and destroy everything they come in contact with.

Scary stuff.

That said, have you ever applied online or at a company website for an HR position you thought you were absolutely perfect for…only to never hear back from the employer?

And at Google, his HR group gets more than 50,000 resumes a week.

In a recent LinkedIn article, he said:

“Some resumes are brilliant…but many are absolute disasters. For 15 years, I’ve continued to see the same mistakes made over and over again  by job candidates on their resumes, any one of which can eliminate them from consideration for a job.”

I wanted to know what I should charge to create a company handbook, revise new hire paperwork, including an employee application, and be available for phone consultation.

I want to be reasonable but also don’t want to cut myself short.  Any advice on what to charge and on agreements you have that you would be willing to share would be appreciated?

Candid Career Confessions From A No Bull, Straight-Talking HR Leader

If you’re going to spend any time on this blog, you ought to know the truth about the person behind it — me.

The interview that follows will give you a better idea of my take on HR and will reveal both the good and the not-so-flattering aspects of my HR career I’ve never shared with anyone else before.

This interview was originally published awhile back on Linked:HR.  At the time, it reached  600,000 global HR professionals, which is the largest single HR network on LinkedIn.  In case you didn’t catch it the first time, here it is (along with excerpts from some other interviews I’ve done as well).

One other thing:  It’s also the longest article I’ve ever published here — and it may be much more than what you bargained for.

In any event, hopefully you’ll find every word of value.

So grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy!
