Call me a PIRATE and I'll slit your throat!

A Banker, a Doctor, and a Recruiter walk into a bar, two of them leave wanting new jobs.

Indulge me while I play a bit of make believe.  If I didn't live and breathe this business (including an occasional dream about it at night), I think I might actually enjoy reading.  Unfortunately, four…

Hiring Veterans Could Be the Secret to Saving the Job Market

You’d think a sudden influx of more than 100,000 jobs in the United States would make everyone happy, right? Think again.

Between 2009 and 2012, the number of manufacturing jobs in the United States shot up from 98,000 to 230,000. With Chinese labor costs increasing by 15 to 20 percent a year, many American companies have elected to pack up their manufacturing operations…

The Most Important Job in the World

Today I dropped off Kennedy, my daughter, at Kindergarten just like I do every day.  When I was walking her to class, I was deep in thought.   Kennedy was holding my hand tightly and my 2 year old son, Trace, was in my arms.  I passed the cross-guard and said “hello” just like I do every morning.  I walked in…

Cutting Hours Risky Way to Avoid Obamacare

Even with the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) delayed until 2015, companies are already looking for ways to get around the mandate. But they could find themselves in legal hot water if they adopt one of the most popular techniques - cutting employee hours.

Starting January 1, 2015, the employer mandate will require employers with 50 or more full-time or “full-time equivalent” employees to provide health coverage to its full-time…

Castrating Competitiveness

A couple of decades ago, our society began to do something that I believe has reshaped our kids and caused unintended consequences in the way they interact with others, evaluate their own self-worth, and engage themselves in business. It's when we started making sure every child received a trophy, or a medal, or…

Don't read this. (...unless you LOVE money.)

Get out of my way!  I'm insane in the morning.   Once my silly iPhone alarm goes off, all it takes is the tiny, little thought of firing up my Kuerig and rocking a 20 ounce coffee to get me flying. 

Mere moments into the new day, I'm already thinking and planning my morning activities at work.  Momentum in my…

The Socially Awkward Recruiter

I have a confession to make. I’m a total dork in my everyday life. I know it’s hard to believe – I’ve been called a social butterfly and have at least once been the life of a party. For more than 10 years I’ve gotten a thrill out of calling up total strangers and convincing them to completely change…

Great Scott! It is Fall (Almost)

There is something about the Fall that puts everyone in a good mood.  After a hot August and a great summer, a new and exciting season is upon us.  Before we know it Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas will be here.  As Kenny Chesney says “Don’t Blink”.

Don't fool yourself with Social Media.

Anyone who has heard me speak, or read my blog, knows I believe social media has an important role to play in business development, attracting talent, and building brand.

I have coached my recruiters how to do that, and now many companies pay me to teach them how to do it.

Social media is a tool. Not an end in…
