How to Handle a Boss Who E-mails 24/7

Ah, we know this all too well. A boss sending e-mails at all hours of the morning, noon, and oh yes — night.

How can you demonstrate you’re a responsive employee while also creating boundaries so you don’t succomb to responding post-midnight?

According to The New York Post, Gregory Giangrande, chief human resources officer at Time, Inc., advises:

 

“First, make sure your boss expects a response at all hours — which, depending on your line of work, is highly unlikely. But demonstrating that you don’t create hard lines between being on and off duty is critical for long-term career success. Let’s not forget, the flip side of mobile technology is the flexibility it provides us not to be a slave to traditional in-office work hours. If you at least respond to a few late-night pings, you might be surprised at how quickly a bond may form with your new boss.”

Essentially, it’s important to remember technology doesn’t necessarily mean you need to log on 24/7 and respond even when the person at the other end of the e-mail is your boss. Sure, responding a few times may go along way but this is a good opportunity to create boundaries from your work and personal life so you’re not stressed out about responding to e-mails at midnight.

New Recruiting Software Cuts Down On Resume Review

TalentSpring, Inc. secured $1.6 Million in investment from Second Avenue Partners and private investors in their first round of venture capital funding.

The Seattle based company has created a Software as a Service (SaaS) talent sourcing service that is currently being used by 50 small and medium-sized businesses. Releasing publicly in May of 2009, the software allows recruiters and hiring managers to search social networking sites, job boards, and corporate applicant tracking systems to find candidates.

“It is not uncommon for a recruiter to read 2,000 resumes to actually fill a position,” Bryan Starbuck, CEO and Founder of TalentSpring told blogger Joel Cheesman. “We’re solving a huge problem for recruiters by automating the candidate sourcing process of manually reading and ranking resumes. TalentSpring’s technology will allow every recruiter to become an expert candidate sourcer and will save organizations substantial amounts of money.”
