Justin McMillin commented on Chris Short's blog post 'The Death of the One-Page Resume?'
"One pagers are about as sensible as Hummers (dis on Hummers) - if you have relevant information that you need to convey, DO IT. This "rule" has no bearing in any kind of reputable organizations. And if it is adhered to and things…"

Yet another self-created tool because we don't have the budget...

DOE is cutting right and left as they prepare for the worst. This means I'm left to fend for myself. This means no CRM besides what our watered down version of Kenexa can provide. In order to keep ahead of all of the outside emails I get on a regular basis (20+ daily) I decided to find a free solution.  Thus, my simple Zoho form was created: http://creator.zoho.com/justin.mcmillin/sample/ What does it do? Well let me tell…See More

Seeking simple and FREE tools

I'm in a budget crunch environment at work - yes, I recruit/source for the federal government. Needless to say, money that we would ordinarily use for tools is being soaked up to pad our offer/promotion funding - (signing bonus, relocation, ect).  So what I need... I'm decent with boolean searches without any tools. But I do need a simple, SIMPLE CRM/database that is compliant. I'm losing track of all of the incoming resumes and materials. We have Sharepoint, but I'm not sure I want to utilize…See More

LinkedIn Concept

I'll give kudos where kudos are due. LinkedIn was a pretty nifty idea. It negated all the Myspace and Facebook triviality and packaged up something that resembled an interactive resume. Not bad.  Recruiters gone wild! People just giving out content that is usually discovered by means of an internet scouring fest? Jockpot. Well... now LinkedIn is trying to play jackpot. They invited us into their site, pampered us a little, spoiled us a bit. Little did we know that the love and devotion that we…See More

"I just joined Linked in because of the hype. I still never go on it. Im sticking to other exclusive resources to find my talent. As for my clients, simple networking and contacting is working. I really should cancel the account."

My response to Ad/Marketing/PR firms social media greed

I recently read a blog on Recruiting Blogs. While well written, I think we need to keep the social media picture in perspective as recruiters/sources as well as organizations with a need for social media. It's not a difficult medium to use/learn. Therefore, why are people so impressed with what advertising, marketing, and/or public relations firms are offering?To preface, check out the original blog post:Never Slash A Social Media Program Too Soon (…See More
