Started Jun 11 0 Replies

Why Do Recruiters Spam Candidates?

Allison Kruse wrote a thoughtful article on the issue of excessive amounts of email being sent by recruiters.  I do applaud her concern and think that she has a good point.  At the same time, I wonder how many placements she has made in the realm of technical search, where there are sometimes extremely few…See More

Épée, "Human Factors" and Headhunting

From a Historical perspective, Recruiting has certainly been around for thousands of years, and, expectationally, will definitely continue to exist for a long, long time (at least if Humanity continues to exist).  But, will "Headhunting" continue to exist?  The mere word evokes images of primitive savages with curare-tipped…See More

Time for A Meeting of the Recruiters Union?

I caught this obviously (slightly) fictitious profile on LinkedIn and wanted to bring it to the attention of the Central Committee for Monitoring LinkedIn Recruiter Profiles.  Perhaps we need to have a group meeting about what to do about such people (name omitted for privacy reasons):Caffeine Aficionado…See More

Is There Really a Gene for Headhunting?

As someone with scientific training, related to a Nobel geneticist (a farmer/agriculturalist) it has piqued my curiosity whether or not there really is a "gene" for hunting (and/or "headhunting").  Using the results of my DNA test from Ancestry.com, I plugged them into a…See More

Fighting "Fake News" in the Recruiting World

Posted on July 6, 2017 at 12:00am 0 Comments

I was just listening to a discussion of the multiple legal infractions involved in threatening to slander someone for conducting perfectly legal business and it reminded me very much of my own experiences several years ago.  Reiterating my position on the illegal conduct of the now-defunct "Fordyce Letter", they were involved in a conspiracy to extort and defame me, prior to going out of operation.

Here is a link to the 2013 article in question, which was never retracted, and is still…

Here is what I have to say about David Heinemeier Hansson's outrageous libel against me, a crime which he committed merely because he received my email for a job opportunity on the same day his puerile book was released...  Soap-box standing and so on, dhh is no example of ethical 'cleanliness'.…

Posted on December 8, 2016 at 9:13pm 0 Comments

Introduced by Nicholas Meyler

In my effort to invent new ways to extend and expand the range of possibilities available to Executive Recruiters/Management Consultants, I am currently working on a fascinating project with Inventor Doug Peckover who was awarded priority rights to the invention of “tokenization” security in 2005. Doug’s invention is now widely used (in various modified forms) throughout the secure payments industry, and companies like ApplePay, SamsungPay,…
