"I was an early adopter of LI and had 30K direct connections early (is that at all rare any more I don't know?) and have been calling LI a cesspool since 2010.  But it is still a useful cesspool. It could have been so much better. …"

Another day another twitter discussion about how resumes are unnecessary and anyone who is anyone has a reputation and no need of a paper representation of his or her work.

I don't think that is true.  I really, really don't think that is true.

YOU MAKE ME SICK! (said the candidate to the recruiter).

Posted on March 5, 2014 at 5:30pm 3 Comments

I like words. I probably like them too much. I spend a lot of time thinking about words and the meanings they hold. But thinking about words and their impact is not a waste of time for me as a recruiter.   So often words, either spoken or written, are all I have in my arsenal as I strive to engage and…

The Context of Content (what's a resume anyway?)

Posted on February 11, 2014 at 10:00pm 2 Comments

Recruiters will use any kind of information to find candidates.  I once literally got contact information off of a bathroom wall once and, yes, I made a placement.

We won't discuss the industry.

Recruiters seek out the people we place, and we find them anywhere they are. It is what we do -…

I was reading this article from Jim Stodgill the other day, it is really good - make sure you bookmark it and read it. I came across this statement and had to take a beat:

We can't please everyone all of the time. AKA They don't understand us.

Posted on September 22, 2013 at 11:30am 2 Comments

I think a lot of people don't understand what we do, or how we work.  Which is why I got a cranky email on Friday from a guy who couldn't believe I called him and emailed him at work.

Which made me laugh, and then I thought about it all weekend.  Then I wrote…

Thanks for the connection Lisa. Let's talk this week and figure out what we can do. I still have your number in the system unless you want me to use a different one.

Thanks for the invite, odd we've never connected before. Always good to *meet* local folks!

Yes, it's probably doomed but we can always target postings on other sites.

We only have about 6 active members. And the exchange this morning didn't earn us one extra person so we don't have much strategic depth personnel wise.

Love to hear what you are doing that is experimental! Sounds fun..!
