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?

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,…

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