It occurred to me, over the weekend, that maybe I am not the only person in the office that knows this business and wants to say something. That is why I’ve decided to let anyone from the company who has a great blog thought, to blog. Besides, they say that diversifying is the way to go; no?
So, my readers, don’t be surprised if you see co-workers’ names at the end of the blogs; they may just happen to have a better idea than me. And it would be counter-productive and just plain stupid of me to squash their creative juices.
Now, as there are disclaimers with most things, I have to say that I don’t necessarily agree with, promote and/or accept what my fellow co-workers may have to say. I am, however, trusting their judgment not to get me into too much trouble.
So, see you around. Possibly later, rather than sooner.

We’ve all heard the saying, “Finding a Job is a Full Time Job”. And how true it is. You may think that simply typing the position you want to have into a job board will yield your future employers name, but if that’s your idea of finding a job, then you’ll probably be out of a job for longer than even you imagined.
I’m not trying to say that this doesn’t work; it can. But here’s a tip for you. Try researching said position to see if it could really be called by another title or if there is any way to work your way up to that position. Especially in this economic environment, it is increasingly difficult to find a job, let alone the job you want, in the city you want, and all the rest of it.
Too many times we stop short of the tactics we should be using because of frustration. But that won’t get you anywhere! You have to keep on trucking because, like above, it takes time to get a job. Another tip for the job seeker, and I’m not trying to toot my own horn, is to hook up with some kind of staffing firm. I mean, let’s be honest, who better to know all of the job openings and potential job openings in your area. Staffing agencies are very connected in the community and have contacts that you need and want but could only hope of getting.Wait! You can get those connections. They become your connections, your entrance into a vast database of hiring managers, HR personnel and, at last, open positions! So, go forth – you’ve got work to do!

Hi, all. My name is Frank Vincent Viarra and I am the owner of a recruiting company called Real Life Recruiting in Las Vegas, Nevada. I decided to start a blog because the industry in which I work everyday is people and I know people are a curious sort. Plus, maybe someone out there is interested in me!
Ultimately, I would like this to be a place where I can vent, rant, possibly inspire, but really to inform any and all readers of our goings on. I'm hoping this will be a place you'll enjoy and check back often. Also, I invite you to visit our website http://www.realliferecruiting.com/index.html, especially if you are in the market for a job or employees.
Since people are my business and people make up a community, the thought occurred to me that if I really wanted to help people, I ought to help the community. This was my new year's resolution and I'm determined to stick with it. I figured blogging was getting quite popular and so why not jump the bandwagon.
Any comments, questions or suggestions can be brought to my attention via FrankV@realliferecruiting.com. Thanks for reading!
