Strike A Balance: Mastering Your Online Profile and CV

January 29, 2016

Being in the recruiting business, we see dozens of CVs, LinkedIn profiles, Behance portfolios and even Twitter accounts every day. We've seen it all; the good, the bad and the ugly, as well as the just bizarre. So, we are taking a moment to share with you the types of things we look for on the different types of profiles that all recruiters use: personal, professional and CV. We know we aren't the first people to think this concept up. You can find tons and tons of articles on how to make your LinkedIn or CV stand out, and you'll probably learn some good information from reading a few of them. However, in most cases we don't think it takes 10 or even 7 steps to optimize your profile. For today's professional, who has a working understanding of technology and how social networks work, it only takes understanding a couple of points to create a profile or CV that is not only informative and appropriate but also interesting. Here are the things that we find work well when we are evaluating your profile and why we think they matter.

Digital Transformation Terms

January 15, 2016

In the ever-evolving digital world the key to sounding relevant is knowing the jargon. That can be daunting because there is a dense vocabulary of terms and acronyms that will quickly weed out anyone who hasn't been  paying close attention over the past few years. Job ads, articles, blog posts and newsletters are rife with these words, and when someone asks you if you have any SEM experience in an interview hopefully you know that it stands for Search Engine Marketing and not a microscope or statistic equation.

Becoming an Independent Contractor

December 23, 2015

Business vector designed by Freepik   Microsoft has nearly two-thirds as many contractors as full-time employees. Even the simplest business structures, sole proprietorships, have increased their use of contract workers nearly two-fold since 2003. - Tad Milbourne for Tech Crunch   Contracting is seemingly the way of the future as many companies are currently incorporating it into their hiring strategies and only projecting more demand for contract positions. Here at RattleBerry, we get consistent requests from our clients for contractors, and are seeing steady growth in this area. More and more individuals are being drawn to this type of employment due to its attractive perks. Who wouldn't like to have more control over their work, avoid office politics, consistently work on new projects and, best of all, make more money?

The case for internal innovation - lean and agile or no?

December 18, 2015

  One thing we have come across again and again during our conversations with user experience, project management and digital professionals is the need for small pockets of innovation within large companies. How a few people within teams, either informally or formally have managed to break management thinking and illuminate a new way to build profitable products and customer experiences. We all hear a lot about rapid proto-typing, minimal viable products, the lean start-up method and, the big one, agile development methodology. But how can corporations, with thousands of employees, use the above to build better products and customer experiences?

Been wondering what all the "UX" fuss is about?

November 20, 2015

You have probably been noticing a lot more talk about user centred design, design thinking and UX in your working life. You may be wondering what it is all about. Well, Katie Jones, marketing & research executive with RattleBerry gives you her take on why right here: Everyday, more and more companies are shifting the way they develop products from usability centric to customer centric. They've realized that they need to develop products and services specifically catering to their customers instead of developing a product, rolling it out and expecting the customer to cater to the product. This change is being driven by digital startups such as Uber and AirBnB who have gained huge market share in a very short amount of time by tailoring their brand to the specific wants and needs of their customers.

Our evolving proposition - 6 months in

November 13, 2015

Focusing on digital transformation and experience RattleBerry is a freshly squeezed six months old today and we thought it would be a good time to take a step back and see where we have gotten to and what has changed from our initial plan. We have made two hires to our own team and have been lucky to get to work on some really senior recruitment briefs in UX, eCommerce and digital delivery/ project management. So, we are ahead of schedule and that is great, but I have noticed a slight but important shift in the areas we recruit for.
