Pimp My JD

Started Jul 9 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?

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
