#TBT – The Top 5 Off the Cuff Blogs of 2014

top 5 blog pictureMy second year managing our blog, Off the Cuff has been even better than the first. Every Tuesday and Thursday we published great content for employers, job seekers and professionals at any level. Individuals from every department at DAVIS contributed their insights and we also had a handful of awesome guest bloggers.

As we’re coming to a close here in 2014 I wanted to take a look back at some of our most popular posts. So, without further ado, here are the Top 5 Off the Cuff blogs of this year!

5)  5 Reasons College Seniors Should Work with a Staffing Agency

Ah, I remember my senior year like it was just yesterday… the celebrations, the libations and, ultimately, the realization that I had to become a fully-functioning, productive member of society. Yikes!

Coming in at number 5 is an April 24th blog from yours truly. Phew…was hoping I would squeak onto this list. Click on the link above to open this gem in a new tab.

4)  4 Best Practices for Attending the Company Holiday Party

The 4th most popular blog of 2014 was published just two weeks ago! In it, Recruiting Supervisor, Hilary Gardner delivers guidelines that will make your holiday party fun and also guarantee you still have a job on Monday.

3)  Are You Awkward When Having a Conversation with Strangers?

Do you ever find yourself having a hard time holding conversations with people you barely know?

Galen “You’re Stoked” Verney used his experience with Dale Carnegie to craft this well-written and useful blog. In our 3rd most popular blog of the year, he delivers tips for striking up and holding conversations with strangers.

2)  4 Reasons You Should Never Burn a Bridge with an Employer

Number 2 in our countdown comes from DAVIS On-Site Representative, Ashley Wright. Ashley explains why “up-and-leaving” a job on a whim or burning a bridge with an employer is never a good idea. After all, you never know if you’re going to have to cross that bridge again one day.

1)  Recruiting as a Career Path

“Let’s face it, no one goes to school and graduates with a degree in staffing.  Indeed, some people graduate from college and have no idea what staffing is or that it is a profession.”

Finally, our number 1 most-trafficked blog of the year discusses Staffing & Recruiting as a viable and rewarding career path that many folks don’t consider. Is a career in recruiting worth exploring for you or anyone you know?

So there you have it. The Top 5 Off the Cuff blogs of 2014 were certainly valuable to me (especially #5). Be sure to subscribe for more great content at the upper right of this page!
