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?

For some reason, we have a tendency to overcomplicate recruiting, and spend an inordinate amount of time focusing on experimenting with unproven technologies and tools instead of actually…Continue

"This is a very good idea and hopefully one that will give plenty of people some fresh ideas. We all know how difficult it can be to write something engaging at 4pm on a rainy Wednesday afternoon."

HR Technology Conference: Talking Social Recruiting With SHRM

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

I was kind of surprised when my friends over at SHRM reached out to me with a few questions about social recruiting; after all, SHRM is decidedly not a recruiting-focused organization, and that same membership that seems to actively work to block their employees social media access also is, in my experience,…


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

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

I’m pretty relaxed about rules in general, and my biggest role  as Managing Editor within the Recruiting Blogs community is mostly to referee when the trolls come out from under the bridge (or away from their contingency firm bullpens).  The coolest thing about this site is it’s actually pretty self-sustaining and organic.  But sometimes, the deus ex machina factor kicks in and I've got to intervene.

No problem.  I'm disappointed to learn that I haven't been kicked out, since I would never want to join any club that would have me as a member.

Why did I get kicked off of "Secret Sourcers" group on Facebook?  I'm a little mystified.  What did I do that offended the sensibilities of the Powers that Be?
