LinkedIn Account Upgrade?

Thinking about upgrading my account, any thoughts or suggestions? I actually think I would go more to one of the "business" plans vs. the "talent" plans, what do some of you have? Or just stay with…Continue

My Ode to Recruiting *

I suppose I could probably write something for each letter that describes some of the things I don’t love about recruiting, but thinking about what I have come to love about it over the last few…Continue

A Big THANK YOU!

Posted on October 21, 2011 at 11:09am 3 Comments

I have been visiting RBC on a regular basis for about 8 months now. Today, I had the occasion to use a service that I was introduced to via the network here. And then I realized there were quite a few things that the community here has brought to me, and how thankful I am that there have been so many willing to share.

 

Blogs, posts, and comments: A bunch of "regular" participants on here have brought knowledge, encouragement, and LAUGHTER! Sandra, Amy,…

Background Checks

Posted on September 22, 2011 at 3:31pm 5 Comments

Hi Everyone,
