"What a great, real perspective on this. It's funny, because you put into words what I've felt. It's kind of like being a scorned lover, right? You push and support and defend, and at the end of the day, it's as if you're…"

Actually, Recruiting IS Sales - How I've Come To Accept It

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 10:43am 18 Comments

I read the article by Kyle Lagunas about recruiting, and how it’s not like selling at all. And while I appreciate his thoughts, I think they are misguided, and frankly, I still think he’s speaking as an "expert" in an area where he doesn’t have any applicable experience. This is akin to me giving stock advice. Sure, I have a brokerage account, but I lack the Series 7 that would be critical for me…


How Recruiters Can Pay It Forward

Posted on February 14, 2014 at 10:00am 11 Comments

In full disclosure, I’m a huge geek. In 99 out of 100 opportunities on any given night, I’ll watch anything that is on the NatGeo or History Channels before I watch any of that mindless drivel of reality TV. (the Real World still gets a lifetime free pass). And so I had the opportunity to get all freaky with my inner geek and watch the …
