48 hours into Challenge #2 and the feedback is that it is just too hard. The feedback we received from Challenge#1 was “too easy”. This is not the story of the “Goldielocks and the 3 Sourcing Gurus” and you are hoping to find Challenge#3 too be 'just right'.
We have been intentionally elevating the complexity level of each challenge to ensure that we get only THE BEST OF THE BEST for the final showdown in Atlanta. I can give you a few hints to… Continue

"Take Google, for example, the economic paragon of a truly successful Web 2.0 media company. With a market cap of approximately $150 billion, the Silicon Valley company took in $6.139 billion in revenue and $1.465 billion in profits in 2005. Telling is the fact that unlike companies such as Time Warner or Disney that create and produce movies, music, magazines, and television, Google is a parasite; it creates no content… Continue

"Where does this culture of "unreality" come from. Part of the answer is that it is created and controlled by a governing class made up of the media, corporations and political groups. The members of this class exercise much of their power by inventing news, advertising, and entertainment that is sold to us and used to sell us other things, from products and candidates to ideas. All compete with each other to determine… Continue

Periodically, you may run into a Headhunter who seems to be somewhat
jaded, rather skeptical, and appears to have had his sense of humor
surgically removed. Or, perhaps, you may run into one or two in your
life that don't act that way.
The reason for this attitude is that candidates frequently sabotage
their own job search efforts (while, in the process, taking food out of

I think my friends are getting sick of listening to me. Well, they’ve
probably always been a little tired of listening to me talk since a) I
like to hear myself talk, so I can talk about nonsense for hours and b)
my voice sounds like a cross between a tortured hyena and a wounded
elephant. But, that aside, I think that my friends are very tired of
hearing me talk about how much I love my job. I look forward to my
“office days,” when I get to sit at the desk,… Continue

This has nothing whatsoever to do with recruiting...but it throttled me nonetheless.
So I'm driving in to the office this morning listening to the good ole NPR and they're doing yesterday's Capital Hill roundup rodeo of the Iraq debate, Harriet Meirs not appearing, etc... And they fired off two sound bytes; one from Jon Kyl from my home state (AZ) and one from Lindsey Graham from South Carolina.
Kyl: "The best way to support the troops is to support the troops"

The daily newspaper industry, already in shambles, received more bad news recently with ebay’s U.S. launch of Kijiji. Despite the challenging name, the site is basically an exact replica of Craigslist Continue
which ebay invested $25 million in a few years ago (so much for
amicable strategic corporate investors). With free classified listings
for real estate, cars, jobs, services, and other things, the site will
undoubtedly further erode classified revenue for daily newspapers.…
