With that in mind, we are in the beginning stages of building a website that includes my blog(s), jobs postings, and other cool online… Continue

Seth Godin wrote a post called "Why bother having a resume?” in which he claims that truly extraordinary people do not require the standard job-seeking dossier.

When it comes to the business world, Steve Jobs is the Man. Period.
This guy creates value in just about everything he touches - Is every new product Apple launches a blockbuster? . . . No, but his track record is a laundry list of immense successes. If you owned Apple stock just 12 months ago, I'm sure you'd agree. 12 months ago to the day, you could have bought AAPL at $95/share on… Continue

Just posted on my blog about my new search for a Sourcer to add to my team - that begins today and that I expect to have complete and filled VERY quickly. I'm looking for any suggestions and thoughts on additional screening questions - and of course any recommendations for any hard working sourcers looking to speak to me would be great if they felt so inclined to use the contact page to reach me.
When experiencing an issue as the Human Resources Manager, or a coroporate recruiter, where are you sourcing the solutions to your problems? Google? Analyst? Trade Shows? Your thoughts are appreciated!
