"So true, the old local network is a powerful tool.  Sometimes what is closest to us is what gets overlooked!  Thanks for the post Bonnie."

What's in Your Backyard?

Wasn’t it Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz who said something about not looking beyond your own backyard to find what you need? I believe she had a point. Your best business ambassadors may just be your own employees. If you have built a nurturing environment and created an atmosphere that breeds loyalty, you probably have the best promoters of your company right in front of you. After all, who among us doesn’t love to brag? I was at a wedding a few weeks ago when someone asked what I do for work. I…See More

The Overlooked Acronym

IT, VB.Net, HR, AP, c++,IP, ID, iOS, CIO, SAP, C#, ASP.Net….oh, my! Years ago I worked in HR for a world-renowned IT company. This company was known for acronym’s – starting with its name - so it’s surprising our division was called Personnel rather than HR. But of course talent back then referred to a job applicant and an iPhone just meant “I” was the proud owner of a telephone, albeit a landline. Personnel ran the gamut of responsibilities from recruiting, to salary management, to policies…See More

The Nobleness of Science & Technology

According to recent statistics, the number of bachelor's degrees earned by computer science majors from Ph.D. awarding U.S. universities has increased by nearly 20% in 2012 compared to 2011. This marked the third year in a row that we’ve seen the double-digit increase. Who cares? We should all care and be infinitely happy that younger generations are realizing that not only is a degree relating to science and technology a lucrative career move, but it can almost be seen as a leap towards a…See More

"Volkan - I agree.....and the only way to turn that around is by great writers like Will and Amy to put it into words ... and social media advocates like us to get their message out to the masses."

Look Back to Move Ahead

Whether you are looking for a job, a promotion, revitalizing your business or even meandering through life’s daily minutiae; sometimes it’s good to take a look back in order to move forward. Let’s take searching for a job as an example. It is a daunting task in any economy because the search is seriously based on emotion. This is where the help of a consultant, a recruiter or anyone familiar with career counseling can make a big difference. As humans, most of us have a myriad of emotions when…See More

"Hey Amy & Will - if this is what you two can produce in tandem.....then keep on trucking!! You put it out there in a straight forward no-holes-barred fashion and there is no one that cannot learn from your sage advice. Well done!"

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

Isn’t it amazing how the simple beauty of the sun shining can change our outlook? After a long difficult winter I understand the phrase “hope springs eternal.”It isn’t only the appearance of the sun that has raised my spirits. I took a stroll through the local mall this weekend and was encouraged to see the numbers of shoppers carrying bags of just purchased goods. This weekend I received a call from a friend who sold her house last week at a profit.In addition, the staffing firm I work for (MY…See More

April Fool No More

Historically, this is the day to play practical jokes and truth be told, I’ve been known to be the catalyst of such pranks, albeit all quite innocent and in the name of good fun. April Fool’s Day is said to have been started by a simple case of a delayed communication. It seems that a new year was once celebrated in early April. However sometime in the 1500’s it was changed to January 1 by decree. Back in the day, with communication at literally a snail’s pace, it could take years for news to…See More
