"I think merit is still in there somewhere. But you are correct, it is being overshadowed by all of the politics and fluff. Nothing new, I think to some degree it has always been that way - it is just much more obvious now because employers are…"

"Lol. The opening sounds familiar. Very Shakespearean. You must have had a great relationship with your boss because that could have gotten anyone else one less reference. Loved it!"

Good Questions to Ask on an Interview for Recruiting Roles...

Hi Folks! Long time no see! I am on the market looking for recruiting jobs with a twist (done with agency recruiting and looking into Corporate Recruiting or Admissions Recruiting roles.) I want to make the best, most informed decision possible, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about what questions I could ask during an interview to determine if the company suites me and make sure they're not a bunch of crazy people.I've worked at 4 different recruiting companies, the last one…See More

Top 10 Reasons Mothers Make the Best Recruiters

Posted on May 11, 2009 at 11:59am 1 Comment

As a belated mother's day gift to the mothers on the board...



Top 10 Reasons Mothers Make the Best Recruiters:



10. We’ve been lied to by enough men and children to know exactly what a lie looks like before it even gets out of a hiring manager or candidate’s mouth.



9. We’ve spent most of our lives surrounded by whiners so we are able to tune out anything annoying.



8. The meanest hiring managers/executives/company owners are not intimidating to a woman… Continue

Hiring Based on Merit--Does that Still Happen?

Posted on May 8, 2009 at 12:28pm 2 Comments

I've read a lot of blogs and articles and have sat in on countless webinars and seminars about what makes a "good" candidate and how to prep them for interviews and you know what--so much of it is so superficial it makes me want to vomit. Whatever happened to hiring people based on merit? Education, skills, training, on-the-job experience doesn't count for enough now. You also have to be pretty, charming, witty, drive a nice car, wear a nice suit, shake hands, smile, kiss babies--when did… Continue

I Cannot Tell a Lie! ...And I'm Not a Politician, So It's Not Just a Catchy Phrase.

I'm giving you all fair warning and letting you know that this is a touchy-feely kind of blog. If you are looking for some sort of information on how to become a better recruiter, you will not find it here. Actually, you will probably not find it in any of my blogs ever.



I woke up at 6:30am to discover my 2-year-old son, Cole, whining in his crib. I pick him up and he cuddles next to me like a baby kooala bear. Cole is usually in great spirits when he wakes up in the morning so I was… Continue

I am not surprised they showed a profit (finally.) They laid off a ton of people and are lending "conservatively."

I Hate Your Guts but I'll Represent You, You Stupid Dick.

Posted on March 31, 2009 at 11:08am 16 Comments

I am finding that one of my biggest challenges of late is finding and having to represent the most abhorent, rude, arrogant, pompus, skilled, intelligent, well-educated, experienced jerks with inflated senses of self-worth. Originally when I came across these people I parked them in my database and said, "the hell with you, you stupid dick! I hope you never get another job again." However, I realized that my approach is immature. In real life I can decide to cut jerks out of my life (and do,… Continue
