Spring cleaning time again.........

Last two weekends I spent spring cleaning my garage (in between doing some visits and being generally sociable).

I even have room for the exercise bike and…See More

How valuable is contact data really?

An article in the national press here in the UK yesterday reminded me all too clearly that we live in an online world where identity is all too easily obtained. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/8426426/Millions-warned-over-substantial-email-data-theft.html I, like most, am bombarded by a huge number of emails, tweets, status updates, blogs (sic) etc etc daily and…See More

""What came first the chicken or the egg?" is an unusual question I received .  I respond with the only correct answer for the literal aspect of such a question.    "

Stuart Harvey commented on Nick John's blog post 'Unusual interview questions......'
"We use a good list of questions mostly tech focused, some logic and some behavioral but my favorite is asked right in the middle of all of them - What is your super power? My favorite answer so far; I can shoot meat balls from my eye's!"

"Working for a dot-com, we can ask some pretty niche-geeky type questions. Last year, I enjoyed asking people "what do you think of Adobe vs. Apple?" and see what they said - they didn't have to pick a side, necessarily; I was more…"

"We ask "What is the most common misconception about you?" We usually get very revealing answers, and candidates don't have cookie cutter answers for that one."

Is compliance finally sexy?

Posted on March 30, 2011 at 4:22am 0 Comments

This is of particular relevance (and maybe more so) to the UK market right now especially with changes being made to the legal status of temporary workers and the plan to give them the same rights as permanent employees after 12 weeks of employment - called the Agency Workers Rights or AWR legislation. This is under consultation right now but is due to be enshrined in law as of Oct 1st 2011.
