Looking to Hire? Give another look at candidates with career breaks

Check it out!

According to LinkedIn, with a lack of available workers, hiring managers would be smart to take a second look at candidates with career breaks they would earlier have passed over. LinkedIn now provides a way for members to spotlight their career pauses. Details here

Tips to increase your candidate pool: 

  • Look at the full set of skills a person has developed through their lived experiences (personal or professional)
  • Value the skills people may develop during career breaks (including compassion, caring and empathy) 
  • Give candidates the opportunity to share what they have learned that could be applied to the role, regardless of whether that skill was learned outside of work.

News Making You Want to Hide?
How to stay engaged AND protect your mental health

Yea yea — we know we need to stay informed and engaged to exercise our power to effect change. But how can you strike a balance that supports both your wellbeing and your ability to take action?

Tips on healthy news consumption come from the Center From the Future of Museums (CFM) director Elizabeth Merritt. She says to “Cultivate knowledge and resilience, believe that you can change the world” in her post “How to Stay Informed While Staying Sane” found here.

“Perhaps you are suffering from news poisoning,” says Merritt … symptoms include malaise, despair, and the desire to sign off social media and never open a browser window again …  It would be tempting to retreat into an echo chamber of news and social media that confirms what we already believe to be true and provides the affirmation of like-minded peers. But the very things that make the news so stressful right now only increase our obligation to educate ourselves about what is happening in the world.”

Select your sources: Exclude hysteria, but avoid an echo chamber of your own thoughts. 

Limit your exposure: Schedule a limited window to check actual facts.

Be mindful of your motives: Why are you reading an article? To feel good about your own opinions? Learn something? Get mad? Flex your mental muscles, expand your perspectives, and ensure you don’t become complacent in your world view.

Find a reading buddy: someone with whom you can discuss difficult topics and challenging news. Ideally, someone who doesn’t agree 100 percent with your opinions.

Give yourself permission to goof off a bit: Grappling with the world requires a stable mental base, and our psyches may need some silliness right now.

Be choosy: Right now, reading less can actually help you be better informed in our tumultuous time. Be particular about what you read, and save your strength and resilience for focused, thoughtful engagement with difficult but essential material that challenges your preconceptions, expands your thinking, and helps you identify what you can do to take care of yourself and the world.  Read full article here.

Doctors emboldened to leave jobs for work-life balance
Study reveals job turnover causing significant disruption in the physician workforce

Another pandemic fallout: a new report by ​CHG Healthcare shows the highest reported job turnover among physicians.

Their desire for flexibility and work-life balance is emboldening them to leave jobs where they feel overworked or underappreciated.
