Pimp My JD

Started Jul 9, 2014 0 Replies

I don't think JDs are dead (sorry, Zappos) or even ineffective or obsolete. They're just written like crap.  So I figured we could help. I'll be choosing one JD a month to take from snoozer to sexy…Continue

Anyone Know Code?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Irina Shamaeva Apr 16, 2014. 3 Replies

I was playing with the "My Followers" feature related to LinkedIn Publisher (so still fairly small user base and relatively new) and got back a really weird code screen within their site.  I don't…Continue

HR Technology Conference: Talking Social Recruiting With SHRM

Posted on October 2, 2014 at 4:12pm 1 Comment

Dude, Where's My Post? A Letter From The Editor.

Posted on August 8, 2014 at 1:00pm 4 Comments

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 12:25pm 3 Comments
