Dave Opton replied to Rayanne's discussion 'It was the Worst of Times, Part 2'
"Rayanne, Certainly not the way anyone would want to start a weekend. I certainly know the feeling you had as I am sure most readers who have had such "fender benders" do. I had one a few weeks ago but fortunately is was a Ford pickup…"

Dave Opton commented on Gary Franklin's blog post '"What does the recruitment industry compete on?"'
"I would agree with both Thomas and Martin. My own feeling is that be it a product or a service, people are always prepared to pay a premium for quality."

Dave Opton commented on Alasdair Murray's blog post 'The same thing that's dragged job boards down will kill off social recruiting (or why recruiters fail to grasp the concept of advertising)'
"I also agree with Sean which is one of the reasons that recruiters are members with us as well as executives. Recruiters want quality candidates and candidates want access to opportunities that are real."

"Alasdair, It is indeed remarkable how often one sees posts like the ones you describe. It sort of makes you wonder if some organizations don't understand that even when it is a buyer's market as it is now that recruiting is still, as…"

Stand By Me

Posted on June 11, 2010 at 11:43am 2 Comments

The last time I checked there were only 21,185,836 views of this video which should give you some idea of how "tuned in" I am!



The video is part of a series put together by Playing for Change and if you are one of the 21 million plus mentioned above, of course, you already know that.



But for those, like…

Match & Fit

Just so you how far behind the times I am, the subject of this post was actually around since August of last year. Fortunately for readers, the content of Jose Ruiz's post was not time sensitive, indeed, in some respects it is timeless.

Three Questions Executives Should Ask for the New Year

Posted on January 29, 2010 at 5:05pm 2 Comments

We're almost out of January, and a lot of the resolution stuff is wearing off so I am rushing to get this off my chest before it simply proves I am further behind the power curve than even I thought.

Well, I have to admit publically that when I read… Continue

ExecuNet Annual Executive Market Outlook Survey - Opportunity To Participate

Posted on January 20, 2010 at 2:08pm 0 Comments

For the past 17 years Execu Net has conducted an extensive survey of the marketplace. Some members of RecruitingBlogs I am sure have seen it and many undoubtedly have participated.



We are currently in the process of gathering the data for this year's survey from three groups: senior level executives, recruiters, and corporate HR executives.



If you would like to participate (and get a copy of the results for doing so) you can participate as… Continue

Leadership Values

Posted on January 13, 2010 at 1:03pm 0 Comments



When the new year begins the lists come out and it's always time to see who views what as "winners", "losers", and/or what's in store for the next twelve months or so.



The other thing that happens, at least for me, is that this time of year makes you think of where things have been, what's changed, and what worked and what didn't. It also makes me… Continue

Dave - Thought you'd like to know that implu is now a 100% free site. This means organizations can sign up as many accounts as they want at no cost. This offer includes 100% of the site features for....free.

I hope all is well with ExecuNet.

Take care,

Steve

Thank you Dave! It's very interesting and very exciting. We get a lot of queries for an implu api. I guess we're going to have to work on that.

Cheers!

They are the initials of my high school, and was the first thing I thought of to fill in the box for a username as I was stumbling through the process of trying to learn my way around the site.
