I wasted a whole evening watching Wife Swap last night. I don’t know why or how I got sucked in, but I looked up and it was almost 9:00 p.m. and I had nothing to show for my night. To be fair, I was recovering from a pretty bad bout of vertigo and hadn’t been […]
I’m a nail biter. Well, a nail picker, actually. And I can count on one stubby-nailed hand the times I’ve grown my fingernails out in my 47 years on this earth. I keep my nail guy happy because I even pick off the nails he glues on. But this month, a friend and I decided […]
When you ask Google “How to Write a Resume?”, within 0.50 seconds you will have 310,000,000 resources at your fingertips to confuse you even more. Over my almost 6 years with Joseph Chris Partners as a Senior Recruiter I have been able to narrow down the answer to one very simple question. “What are your […]
It is my job to talk with folks who plan, develop, build, and design for a living. The other day I was talking to a candidate who shared more about his personality then about his success in completing projects on time and under budget. He led in with his “emotional intelligence” scores and how he […]
Dad’s lessons continue.. Last time I wrote about one of Dad’s lessons. It was about the importance of doing your homework, being prepared, and how you can benefit from working a little harder and knowing a little more than the other guy. It was one of many lessons my dad taught me. My dad was […]

I was a baby lawyer, just one year out of law school, returning to my office after a hearing and there was a U-Haul trailer backed up to the entrance of my building. Moving guys with banker boxes loaded onto dollies blocked my path into my office, and I stepped around them to get […]
I was thinking about my work as a recruiter and remembered a lesson my father taught me many years ago. I was a senior in college and asked him if he had any advice before going to a couple important job interviews. “Do your homework before you meet them, know something positive about the company […]
In today’s world, it is a candidate driven market. Candidates are getting called repeatedly by recruiters and quite a large amount of them end up with multiple offers to choose from in the end. As a company searching for talent, the decision to hire a firm to help can be a daunting one. The Solo […]
What an awesome week attending the PCBC conference! As I mull over the happenings, the main point of my discussions had a resounding theme – the talent shortage plaguing our industry. This is clearly not an earth shattering statement by any means but every now and then there is solace in knowing it’s not just […]
Yesterday marked my 20-year anniversary of recruiting in the Homebuilding industry for Joseph Chris Partners. I always say I was taught by the best, my father, Joe Chris Ramirez. The recruiting industry has given me so much joy these last two decades for the following reasons: Learning from the future leaders, legends and consultants of […]
I grew up in the military. My dad served for 23 years, and we moved around every 3 years throughout my childhood. It was a really good life, filled with amazing people and places, and I credit my outgoing nature to that life. We’d move to a new post, and I’d go knocking on our […]
Originally posted by Erica Lockwood as a guest blogger on Meredith Consulting’s website, March 22, 2018. As we emerge from last week’s “Women In Construction Week” along with the observance of “International Women’s Day”, it seems quite fitting to address not only the lack of female talent present within the industry today but certainly the […]
