Top 10 Things Students Can Do to get an Internship

 Well here it is! A possible Top 10 list based on all the responses to my request to build a list together:#1 Get on LinkedIn, develop a network, and find advocates at the companies where you want to work.#2 Build relationships, not just social profiles.  Keep those relationships updated with your success (or lack thereof) in the job search. Think quality vs. quantity.#3 Make inquiry calls,…See More

Top 10 Things Students Can Do to get an Internship

I just spent the day at UCSD at the DeCAF career fair. It got me thinking: what are the things that students can do to get internships? Thought, perhaps, that we could build a list together.#1 get on LinkedIn, develop a network, and find advocates at the companies where you want to work#2 do the same as #1 with BranchOut on facebook#3 ...See More

twitter and paper.li is a powerful combination

Posted on May 27, 2011 at 10:00pm 1 Comment

I joined twitter May 3, 2008 and can't believe it's been three years already! Early on I chose to follow about 100 people that interested me. Originally I reasoned that I may be able to keep up with the tweets of about that many people. I found even that was impossible and just dropped in and read a few pages of tweets whenever the mood took me. I never played the "I'll follow you if you follow me game" and publically tweeted that I…

Is Staffing HR’s Rebellious Child?

Posted on December 11, 2010 at 1:24pm 10 Comments

In the corporate world, the staffing department is almost always part of the HR department. Over the years, some protagonists have argued that the staffing department should be separate to HR. That discussion is not the subject of this particular post. This post is about the relationship between the staffing department and HR, a relationship that is often tenuous at best and a relationship that often doesn't work as well as it should.

Staffing is responsible for…

It’s not the Agency. It’s the Recruiter!

Posted on October 10, 2010 at 1:19pm 10 Comments

Years and years ago, my first agency recruiting job was with Source Services Corporation now known as Kforce. My first week there they sent me to training in Dallas where we spent a couple of days learning what the experts thought we should know. I remember quite a few things from those days but one thing struck me as strange. The old war horse recruiter, he described himself that way, said that customers don't do business with the company. They do business with the…

Is it finally Time to Forgive Tiger Woods?

Posted on August 15, 2010 at 9:18pm 9 Comments

The final round of the 92nd PGA Championship is being played as I begin to write this. Tiger Woods started the day tied for 31st place. Unless you've been living under a rock you probably know more than you want to know about Tiger's fall from grace. We all learned about Tiger's personal life, his wife, his two children, and a succession of other women. We've watched his performance on the golf course. Clearly, right now, he isn't the player he once was. Frankly, given what…
