Regulatory compliance executive looking to relo to Phoenix, AZ

I have an executive at a large, national bank (reports directly to CFO) looking to relocate to the Phoenix area. He's more than happy to consider something outside of banking. If you think you might have something for him let me know. I'm a vendor, not a recruiter, so I'm just looking to help someone out with introductions. mike@avature.net or 503-334-0834.Thanks,Mike JohnsonSee More

Why user interface matters and why you should care

Posted on March 30, 2009 at 2:48pm 0 Comments

Having spent the last nine months building our Recruiting CRM application to interface with many different systems I've been given the unique opportunity to look inside many different HR and recruiting software applications commercially available on the market. I've also had the chance to respond to many RFP's, RFI's, and product bake-offs with competitors. I'm continually blown away at how poorly designed many of these applications are from a users perspective (but not entirely surprised given… Continue

Cash is king...

Posted on February 10, 2009 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

We've all heard the phrase "cash is king" and probably hear that today more than ever. Why? Keep in mind that this is overly general but I'm just trying to illustrate a point. In today's economy we hear a lot about companies that borrowed extensively to fuel their growth and now the underlying assets that secured those loans are worth a lot less. In extreme cases that puts those companies upside down - meaning they owe more than the collateralized assets are worth. One way for these companies… Continue

Resume as a Tag Cloud

Posted on October 5, 2008 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

If you don't know what a tag cloud is go to wikipedia first.

Check out Tag Crowd. Copy and paste any text to make your own tag cloud to visualize word frequency. Try it with a resume or a job description and see the resulting cloud image. Do you like it? Does it have any relevance? Could you ever see this as a useful tool? Why or why not? Let's hear what you think.

Of course I wouldn't be writing this if Avature's Recruiting CRM wasn't selected...thankfully it was and a big "hug it out" to David Shadovitz and his editors for selecting us. You can see the article in the Oct. 2, 2008 current issue here:

Tags vs. folders

Posted on August 19, 2008 at 8:29pm 3 Comments

According to website del.icio.us, "Folders were the old way to organize your bookmarks. They were great if you only had a few bookmarks and a few folders, but as your collection grew, it became harder and harder to decide what goes where. Delicious has a new and better way: tags."



Tags were also popularized by Flickr - the photo sharing website - as a way in which to categorize photos - who's in them, when they were taken, where they were taken, by season, holiday, event type, etc. -… Continue

Since you are from Oregon - absolutely. Unfortunately this month is pretty booked - can we shoot for January? I have the 2nd week still with availability. Touch base with me the first of the year and we will get it scheduled.
