    1. I’m Facebook’s Head Of People—Here’s What We’re Hiring For Right Now (And Why)

      I’m Facebook’s Head Of People—Here’s What We’re Hiring For Right Now (And Why)

      When I joined Facebook in 2008, we could’ve fit all of the company’s employees into a single movie theater. There were just a few hundred of us, mostly based in Palo Alto. Now, nine years later, we’d need a stadium. As the company has grown nearly 35 times—to 17,000 people in more than 50 offices in 30 countries—we’ve recruited entire teams we never imagined we’d need. So it’s no surprise that our recruiting process has had to evolve with us.

      Six Reasons Why Your Argument Failed To Persuade

      That’s wrong. Persuasion doesn’t work this way. You might succeed at getting others to concede a point temporarily, but they’ll often revert to their old ways of thinking as soon as whatever logic or enticement you’ve used to “win” them over to your views is no longer there.

    3. What Happened When I Started Saying “Not Yet” Instead Of “No”

      What Happened When I Started Saying “Not Yet” Instead Of “No”

      A decade ago, I was a fresh-out-of-college entrepreneur trying to convince a Sri Lankan tea seller to make a deal with me. It wasn’t going very well. I wanted the seller, who owned a boutique tea company, to become a supplier for the loose-leaf retail tea business I was trying to get off the ground. I could sense the man’s skepticism—in fact, his first instinct was to refer me to his distributor—but even so, he heard me out.

      6 Reasons You Need to Change the Way You Hire

      Finding and bringing on new hires is a time consuming and costly process. From advertising the position to screening candidates to interviewing potential employees, it's an awful lot for one person to handle.

      This Is How Political Activism Can Affect Your Job

      You’re probably familiar with the advice to not talk about politics at work. But the etiquette around participating in political activities outside of work can be a little more hazy.

      10 Things That Will Surprise You About Running a Business » Succeed As Your Own Boss

      I’ve found that people who want to start a business often don’t have the first idea about what that really entails. Once they do launch a company, they’re often surprised at how real and often stressful it is to be an entrepreneur. Here are a few of the things I’d say might surprise you. Heads up! It’s one thing when a subpar employee quits, but what about when the one you’ve come to rely on the most puts in her notice? There’s nothing more heartbreaking.

      Four People In Your Professional Network You’re Probably Undervaluing

      Most people think networking is about making new connections—which is true—but you also have to invest in the connections you already have, whether they’re people you met at the last networking event, or your former coworkers, clients, and friends. In fact, even your current team, boss, and clients are as much a part of your network as anyone else. Here’s how to put to good use the people you already know. Who they are. People who are like you—job-wise, that is.

    8. 5 Reasons No One is Following Your Business on Twitter

      5 Reasons No One is Following Your Business on Twitter

      Almost one-quarter of adult internet users are on Twitter, so it makes sense to include this platform in your marketing plans. By using Twitter, businesses can build brand awareness, promote their content, and drive traffic to their websites. However, that only works if people are actually following you. If no one is following your company on Twitter, you won’t benefit much from using the platform. So, where is everybody? Here are five reasons why no one is following your business on Twitter.

      Three Habits Of The Best Job Candidates I’ve Ever Interviewed

      Tell me if this sounds familiar: You continually make it to the interview stage, and then—crickets. You have the skills to get in the door, but for some reason, you stall out when it comes to getting the offer. It’s super frustrating, and you can’t help but wonder why. As someone who was responsible for recruiting and interviewing applicants for fellowship openings at organizations nationwide, I can tell you it’s true that being qualified isn’t always enough to edge out the competition.

      4 Steps to Get Your Mojo Back After They Hired Someone Else

      This is a crappy email to receive, particularly when you thought you had it in the bag. The exceptional opportunity that you believed was a perfect fit is no longer on the table. It seemed like an offer was definitely in the works, too; after all, you'd sent them references upon request, and even briefly chatted about possible compensation. Plus, you bonded with the hiring manager--you can't have made that up. In spite of an outstanding final interview, you didn't get the job--now what?

      Five New Rules My Company Set After A Hiring Disaster

      I soon realized we’d wound up with some real misfits. A couple of them turned out to be openly contemptuous of the company’s norms and culture, as well as of my own directives as a leader. Others simply hadn’t yet developed the skills they needed to do their jobs well. I should’ve fired the troublemakers early on, but I was afraid of a nasty confrontation and embarrassed to admit my errors. Instead, I spent the next few months hoping things would get better. They didn’t.

      Why More Tech Companies Are Hiring People Without Degrees

      One of Donald Trump’s loudest–and likely most impossible to fulfill –promises is to bring back coal jobs. He has made this appeal to people whose factory skills aren’t in demand anymore and likely don’t have the secondary education necessary to enter into other industries. Related: Why Are There So Many White Young American Men Without College Degrees? Whether or not more coal jobs are created, this need has started a conversation about laborers with different educational backgrounds.
