Go Padres!!!

"People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."- Rogers Hornsby I can't be more excited about the start of baseball season! I truly love the game and can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be on a Sunday afternoon other than the ballpark. Hope springs eternal this time of year as well, and despite a less-than-stellar start, I'm still holding out hope that my Padres might make run at the 2014…See More

My Best Resume Tips

I'm not sure that my friends and family really know what I do for a living, but they have some vague sense that I'm a "recruiter" and that I know at least a little something about jobs and hiring and stuff... As such, I've become a de facto, go-to resource for resume advice.The suggestions I dole out will vary of course, and depend quite a bit on who I'm talking to, the type position and industry they're looking for and how much time I feel like investing. But I have a few overarching pieces of…See More

A Little Fun re: Summer Internships

Every year at about this time, businesses and students alike start gearing up for Summer Internships. For businesses, it can be a great way to utilize inexpensive (or sometimes free) labor. For students, its an entry-way into the "real world" and a way to boost their resume in preparation for post-graduate life.For some industries and firms, the competition for certain, particularly prestigious internships is as, if not more, cutthroat and competitive than for actual jobs. Goldman Sachs…See More

A Brief Follow-Up to “Don’t Bluff a Recruiter”

A while ago, I wrote an article which highlighted some of the similarities between poker and recruiting. The article was very well received, earning over 1100 “shares” via LinkedIn, and several  comments, emails and responses from recruiting professional.Most of the feedback was positive, but there was some constructive criticism and questions that I want to address here now.  The focus of my article was about planning and how important it is for a recruiter to spend his time on “+EV” job…See More

Infallible Logic

I once heard a story about a CEO who had a rather unusual strategy for culling through resumes. This successful and brash leader of a large, well known company would print all the resumes he received for an open position an put them in a stack in no particular order. He would then take half the resumes right off the top of the pile and throw them straight in the garbage without giving them a second look. One day a precocious young human resources employee finally questioned the CEO’s technique.…See More

Once Upon a Time...

Once Upon a Time…There is a story I heard many years ago when I first got started in the recruiting business. As I recall, it went something like this:"A reporter asked Bill Gates to name who he thought was Microsoft’s biggest competitor. Rather than name Apple or Oracle or some other up-and-coming technology or software firm, he answered simply and quickly: “Goldman Sachs.” When the reporter inquired further, somewhat surprised with Gates’ answer, he explained that Microsoft will succeed or…See More
