"Ken - great thoughts. I agree about the old vs. young 60 year old. And generally I (somewhat) trust most HR professionals to see that differences. I do wonder if the automated systems we increasingly rely on will see it though. "

"Certainly a thought provoking post and a great reply-it definitely gives you something to think about.  As I thought about this, I was reminded when I was 25 years old I took a co-worker out to lunch to celebrate his 50th birthday.  During…"

"Wow Jeff. Great imagery. And good question too. If we could live backward and understand what it means to be old, talented and left out, we'd be better at our jobs when we are young, confident and cock-sure of ourselves.…"

Finding Work at 60: A Tale of Talent Lost

Upper middle-management and out of a job.Too qualified,Too set in your waysNot right for the jobToo old fashion for our hip new companyAnd too many other things you aren’t allowed to say.How many really talented people are out there looking (and looking) for work who can’t find a job because the 30 (or 40) something that is in charge of hiring has a pre-conceived notion that the person they are looking for is “younger.” How many automated resume screening tools see someone who was highly…See More

Recruiting Technology Can Be Les Miserables

With apologies for my miss-use of the French word form, a lot of the recruiting technology that is out there today really is “Les Misérables”. If Fantine was a recruiter and left alone, unemployed and destitute – I could hear…See More

Finding Work at 60: A Tale of Talent Lost

Posted on April 17, 2013 at 1:44pm 4 Comments

Upper middle-management and out of a job.

Too qualified,

Too set in your ways

Not right for the job

Too old fashion for our hip new company

And too many other things you aren’t allowed to say.

How many really talented people are out there looking (and looking) for work who can’t find a job because the 30 (or 40) something that is in charge of hiring has a pre-conceived notion that the person they are looking for is “younger.” How many automated…

An Ode to SEO For Recruiters

Posted on March 14, 2013 at 10:53am 1 Comment

If I were to SEO

What would be the way to go?

Would I blog or would I write

A mighty pen to make me bright?

Key word phrases all strung out

Makes my writing all flung out.

Search for hires

High and low

Better with my SEO

20 key words I must sell

Will you promise not to tell?

My marketing Director does insist

That all my writing should consist

Of random words

Thrown to and fro

Just so Google loves me…

A Lean Start Up Holiday for Recruiting Entrepreneur?

Posted on December 21, 2012 at 9:30am 0 Comments

OK, I have been buried up to (and over) my head for the last couple of months getting our new product ready for development. I finally looked up from my desk and realized it was almost Christmas and I am way behind. Since we have been following the basic principles of the Lean Start Up I have visions of MVP’s dancing…
