What is My Work Worth?

People sometimes complain about "enormous" Headhunter fees, where we are paid something on the order of lawyers' hourly rates.  I found this an interesting problem to analyze:  Are we worth our salt?When I perform a search correctly, my work results in millions of dollars of value to my client, sometimes even billions. I think recruiters are way underpaid for what they provide as a service, and I would say there are very few lawyers out there that have my skills or intelligence.People making…See More

Who REALLY Sucks? Scientific Study

Posted on August 26, 2014 at 2:30am 3 Comments

This is a fairly frivolous research project, but I have heard so many people complaining in the past year about how 'recruiters suck', that I was motivated to go do some research, using the Google Chrome Search Engine to obtain data about what, or who, or which professions, vegetables, computer languages,…

Why Recruiters Definitively Don't Suck

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

It's time to take an aggressive position against this prevalent and disappointing trend of demeaning recruiters.  It's almost become a fad for recruiters to write blogs about how recruiters suck, so that they can distinguish themselves against the others... their main 'selling point' being that they 'suck…

Great Article on the Virtues of Fencing as Preparation for Business

Posted on August 15, 2014 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

This is a terrific article which reinforces some of the points I have tried to make previously.
