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?

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

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.
