"As a white male, I still wonder why I can still be statistically in the minority but not a diversity candidate. Nice write up from someone who actually gets it - appreciate your perspective."

Diversity Programs aka The Big Illusion and Implicit Bias

Everywhere you turn lately, you seem to come across another article on diversity (including this one which might just piss you off). It's interesting to see companies highlight their programs to the media in an effort to save face. Unfortunately, the inefficiencies of their diversity programs and the lack of effective actions…See More

As I was going through my regular LinkedIn profile review.  It occurred to me that LinkedIn profiles have become more than just a brief description of someone’s background.  They seem to have evolved into full resumes.  I have a few…

Storytelling, It’s a Recruiters Job

Posted on July 21, 2014 at 12:10pm 0 Comments

For many years, I’ve often pondered what separates good recruiters from great recruiters. As a staffing leader, you’re always tasked with things like employee development and building recruiter capability. We routinely set aside budget for investments into sourcing training, ATS systems & process…

Hi Chris
I see that you are a recruiter at Microsoft, I spoke to Phil Wisner this morning. And I understand that you may be looking for some contract recruiters. I would be very interested in a opportunity to speak with you and a chance to send you a copy of my resume.
I see that you are new on this site also. I just got on it and started looking at all the new people on it, and glanced at yours first. I hope to hear from you in the near future.
Thanks and have a great night.
Kim
