I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up (still don’t!), so I took the LSATs, went to law school and became an attorney. I quickly realized I would have been a great lawyer if it wasn’t for all that darned fine print!

POTPOURRI: A WIDE-RANGING SUMMER SLEW OF IDEAS

By David Reitman | August 20, 2019

Sometimes, no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to come up with a compelling topic to write about, so I keep a notebook of ideas to help me out in the lean times.  This was one of those times.  I checked my list and found lots of good ideas, but none that could…

THE INTERVIEWER: WHY DO I WANT THIS JOB?

By David Reitman | July 29, 2019

We enter the job market for many reasons.  On one end of the spectrum, we may have risen to the top, achieved all we could hope for, and there is no longer an avenue for promotion and no opportunity for new challenges.  On the other end of the spectrum, we were fired for poor performance…

THE KVETCHER: HOW DO I ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES WHEN EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING?

By David Reitman | July 23, 2019

As the Jefferson Airplane once wisely said: “Life is change.”    Something disturbing happened to me last week. My lovely wife Donna and I booked a flight from San Francisco to New York to visit family and friends. We were scheduled to arrive at Newark Airport on a Tuesday evening. Not wanting to drive into Manhattan during rush-hour, we thought…

By David Reitman | July 16, 2019

THE FIRST P:  PREPARE PROPERLY The big day had finally arrived.  I was sitting for the NYS Bar examination.  I was so nervous, I was shaking, but I knew that it would be OK because I was prepared.  Boy, was I ever!  Not being the greatest test-taker, I may have overcompensated a bit.  I cleared…

COLD CALLING: The scourge of the working world (and how to become a cold-calling machine)!

By David Reitman | June 25, 2019

Cold calls.  We hate makin’ em.  We hate gettin’ em.  And yet they make the world go round.  Modern technology has enabled the rise of the robocall.  “Spoofing,” or stealing a phone number to make you think you are receiving a call from a known entity, is becoming more and more prevalent.  Add this to…

THE OBSERVER: So, what do YOU do?

By David Reitman | June 18, 2019

How does one get their business message across?  A pithy elevator pitch and a business card is a good start.   My lovely wife Donna is an indefatigable, relentless networker.  She can work a room like you would not believe.  Consequently, we get invited to all sorts of networking events hosted by local chambers of…

BREAKTHROUGH! (Part 2): Turn failure into SUCCESS

By David Reitman | June 11, 2019

Several months ago, I wrote an article about how success is achieved through perseverance https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/breakthrough-power-perseverance-dlr-associates-recruiting/.  It told the story of my battle with the New York Times crossword puzzle, and how I completed it (taking two weeks, no cheating) through sheer persistence.  Coming off of that adrenaline high, I started a new puzzle, KNOWING that…

How do you attract top talent? Start with a thoughtful job description!

By David Reitman | June 4, 2019

A few weeks ago, I received a job order from a small financial institution that looked as if it was scratched out on a napkin and hastily put into a Word document.  It didn’t go much beyond “Jr. Compliance Officer needed to assist CCO with general compliance duties.”  Not even a salary range.  I emailed…
