Employers are making recruitment procedures increasingly rigorous to makesure they employ only the best candidates. A survey by publisher GTI of 500 companies reveals online screening of jobapplicants has risen from 12 per cent in 2000 to 54 per cent in 2001. More than a quarter of employers used some form of psychometric test lastyear, up from 17 per cent the previous year. Graduate Recruitment Trends also shows employers are increasingly demandinggraduates demonstrate essential skills during job interviews. Four out of 10 companies used group exercises last year, a rise of 14 percent on the previous year, and the proportion of firms asking candidates togive presentations jumped 12 per cent to 37 per cent over the same period. Carl Gilleard, chief executive of the Association of Graduate Recruiters,said the study shows HR is under increasing pressure to select the rightcandidates in a difficult economic climate. “Graduate recruiters recognise the cost of recruitment and want to becertain the people they select have the capacity to be successful,” saidGilleard. “This is driven by a need to select people with the skills to make acontribution to business success quickly.” www.doctorjob.com/products Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri state lawmaker says she won’t resign despite being indicted on federal fraud charges. Republican Rep. Tricia Derges declined to step down in an email to the House speaker this week. The speaker asked her to resign after a federal grand jury indicted her on fraud charges for falsely claiming a treatment she sold contained stem cells that could help with COVID-19 and other illnesses. Derges says her innocence will prevail. She was removed from all committees earlier this week. She says she’ll continue representing her constituents by voting.
Deli Serdang COVID-19 Task Force spokesman Haris Binar Ginting said that a huge number of visitors came to the park following a 50 percent discount on tickets.The large crowd has sparked concerns that clusters of infection would emerge from the event.Haris also confirmed that the local administration had allowed the park’s management to hold the promotional discount, as long as it complied with the COVID-19 health protocols.“We are aware that the tourism industry is still struggling. Therefore, we allowed them to offer the discount, as long as they continued to follow the health protocols,” Haris said as quoted by tribun.com on Wednesday.Haris added that the water park might be forced to close if it violated the health protocols again.“We will close the water park indefinitely” in the event of a repeat violation, he said.

Violence in the workplace is not tolerated, and offenders anre dealt with severly and even made examples of for the good of it’s [sic] employees, as well as the company itself. Is this truly what MLB wants to teach our youth?Now, Machado could have behaved in a more professional manner. But the MLBUA’s statement would have you believe Machado is a madman. The part of the statement that reads Machado had “absolutely no regard to anyone’s safety” is hyperbolic and it’s surprising to see a union use such language.Even MLB released a statement on what the MLBUA said (bolded part by us for emphasis):”Manny Machado was suspended by MLB Chief Baseball Officer Joe Torre, who considered all the facts and circumstances of Machado’s conduct, including precedent, in determining the appropriate level of discipline. Mr. Machado is appealing his suspension and we do not believe it is appropriate for the union representing Major League Umpires to comment on the discipline of players represented by the Players Association, just as it would not be appropriate for the Players Association to comment on disciplinary decisions made with respect to umpires. We also believe it is inappropriate to compare this incident to the extraordinarily serious issue of workplace violence.”Let’s look again at what Machado was suspended for.Breaking: MLB has suspended #Padres 3B Manny Machado for one game for “aggressively arguing” and making contact with umpire Bill Welke in Colorado on Saturday. Machado will appeal the ruling. pic.twitter.com/ncksG4r8F7— Troy Hirsch (@troyhirschfox5) June 17, 2019First, the pitch was outside of the strike zone that was overlayed on Fox’s broadcast so Machado had reason to complain. Second, he threw the bat to a place where no one was. No one was hurt by his bat toss. Was it needed? No. But it’s common in baseball. Javier Baez spiked his bat Sunday while arguing a call and he was’t even ejected. As others pointed out, umpires have been seen trying to entice arguments in the past. Where’s the apology statement from the MLBUA for this behaivor if they view it so poorly?But this is okay? 🤥 #LeadByExample pic.twitter.com/jQVHHe4ION— Jenn (@baseballnchill) June 18, 2019MLB said in its statement Machado was suspended one game for “aggressively arguing and making contact” with plate umpire Bill Welke. Machado denied ever making contact with Welke. The Major League Baseball Umpires Association has chimed in on Manny Machado’s one game suspension and their statement sure is something.The MLBUA used its verified Twitter account to tweet out a statement, and in the process used 12 different hashtags to get the point across. Hashtags such as “temper tantrum,” “violence” and “make an example of.” “Not that I believe, so no, but everyone has their own right to write what they want. We have our case and we’re going to wait to see what the appeal comes back with. We always have the right to argue balls and strikes and give our opinion on it,” Machado said. “You could see the video. I mean, I was right the whole way. There’s video for it.”He pointed but I was way too into the zone on letting him hear what I had to say on what I thought about the whole call. I didn’t touch him. I didn’t think I touched him. Video says it all. … I think we’ve got a good case. I don’t think anyone’s ever gotten suspended a game for arguing balls and strikes. I think that’s a little too much, a little unjustified, but there’s a process to this and we’re going to go through it.”Machado appealed the suspension and is still waiting for a decision.
SACRAMENTO – Just how many gut-busting calories are in that cheeseburger, french fry and chocolate shake lunch? Those who favor chain restaurants may soon be able to find out. A bill that would require restaurants to disclose calorie counts and other nutritional information passed its first legislative hurdle Wednesday. Fast-food outlets would be required to post the calories contained in each of their items on menu boards. Printed menus would have to list calories plus the amount of saturated fat, trans fat and sodium in each item. “People are eating out more now than they were a generation ago,” said state Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles. “If a restaurant can tell you how to super-size a meal, they can certainly tell you how many calories.” Organizations fighting diabetes, cancer and heart disease said the measure would help with what Padilla called America’s “obesity epidemic” by allowing consumers to make better choices about what they eat. It would apply to chains with 10 or more restaurants. Two other similar bills were introduced this year. The authors of that legislation, Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco, and Assemblyman Mark De Saulnier, D-Martinez, agreed to support Padilla’s bill. The Senate Health Committee voted 6-2 to send Padilla’s bill to the Appropriations Committee over the objections of the 22,000-member California Restaurant Association. “A menu will actually become a book … and actually confuse the consumer,” association lobbyist Jon Barnato told the committee. Many restaurants already post nutrition information inside the business or on Web sites. But enacting a law invites frivolous lawsuits, Barnato said, even though the legislation would allow nutrition information to be off by as much as 20 percent. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn’t taken a position on the bill, said spokeswoman Sabrina Lockhart. But she noted the governor, a fitness buff and former bodybuilder, signed laws banning junk food and sodas from schools. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
