You simply can't imagine what an experience it is to live in the greater Detroit area.
Oh, man, cue the circus music! It's our annual "Let's FBI'nd Hoffa!" festival. This year it's being held at a farm field in the neighboring Oakland county.

A great recruiting team can make an HR Administrator's job fairly easy. They bring us vetted, pre-screened candidates who possess many, if not most, of the qualities we're seeking for available positions. It sure beats going through stacks of mostly unqualified resumes.
At the same time, there's plenty of work for us HR administrators to do after the recruiting process. This sometimes… Continue

Last month I spoke to a group of business owners. I introduced the 30 million strong Millennial Generation and they all sat back and crossed their arms. When I explained that they already owned a piece of their brand, many business owners guffaw and told me, “No, they don’t. Oh my God, they are so lazy and entitled, they just want their own way.”
Gone are the days…

I clearly remember where I was, what I was doing, and who I was with when I got the call from iCIMS about the role that I now hold at iCIMS. I had invested months of precious time and energy researching the company and talking with people about the job, and I worked hard to prove I was worthy! Both my hiring manager and I were excited. I couldn’t wait to start!
After I signed my… Continue

Desolate and lonely, you find yourself in a vast space where it seems no one, absolutely no one, can be found. Parched and hungry you trudge on, getting wearier by the moment. You just want to give up, thinking, “this is it. This is where it all ends.”
No, this is not a vain attempt at channeling Stephen King or Dean Koontz. Rather, the “desert” described above is the mental space that… Continue

This Father's Day, I'm officially admitting that I'm a "prude". While I'm at it, I'll also admit that I'm one of those people who doesn't really "get" most song lyrics and if you heard me sing (God forbid) a favorite song, there's no doubt I slaughter the lyrics. I'll get to that in a minute...
