I am so glad I found Recruiting Blogs!
I have worked in the software for staffing industry for 13 years now and still love it!
I worked as a contractor software engineer for several years when one of my staffing firms needed help with their
Applicant Tracking system they had built themselves. At that time 1994, there were only a hand full of packages
available and I was encouraged to build a product for the market.
I have been… Continue

I need your help.
Where can I find good job seeking blogs where candidates discuss the highs and lows of looking for work?
I want my job board to be a socially aware as possible. It is importent that my clients know what the points of views are from the online job seekers.
Thanks in advance and I hope that you are all well.

There truly is a "secret to success". 1. Get up early 2. Work Hard 3. Find Oil
There are tons of people who always complain about their job, the long hours they work and that they need more hours in the day to get things done. Having been tired of hearing co-workers complain and whine I realized I had been one of them incognito! It’s just that I did my whining (and my wine-ing) at home. Don't misunderstand me, I loved my job and the people I worked with, but you just can't hire… Continue

OK, so first there was a piece of toast with the Virgin Mary's face burnt onto it. And then there was the piece of Nutrigrain that looked like ET. But why couldn't the trend have died there? The whole idea of auctioning off these edible artifacts is getting ridiculous. After spending less than 20 minutes on ebay, without even searching for these items, I came across a piece of "very sad" toast, another nutrigrain ET, a bbq steak the shape of Australia, yet ANOTHER nutrigrain ET, a penis… Continue

Being that this is my first post on this site, figured I had to give a brief run through of who I am and where I am from, not tomention what I am doing now. So here goes.....
Had been running my own graphic design firm for the past 20 somewhat years, hiring anf firing and doing the gamut required to be successful. I became friendly with a client of my husbands, Robert Model who had an executive recruiting firm. Bob had an interesting idea and needed someone to implement his ideas… Continue

I had a few drinks with Gerry Crispin
this evening. He was in Toronto doing work. Every time I get a few
hours with him, and lately it has been quite a bit, I always walk away
with a sense that anyone can really do anything or that anyone can
change the things around them.
I usually have to hold myself back when talking with people who know
things about things I am interested. Once I was at a wedding and I… Continue

The Kennedy Show is great and I did not go to sleep last night. I hung out with Gerry Crispin till 4am and then made it through till now.
Yesterday there was a discussion on blogs and the one thing that really struck me was that when the question was asked how many people in the audience are thinking about starting a recruiting blog, way more hands went up than last year when the same question was asked.
It will be interesting to see what happens.
I have had some great… Continue

I received an email from one of my LinkedIn

Ahem! Does this blog software work? Who can read
my blog? Just
my friends? Or anyone? Should my blog be professional and uptight, like my regular blog
? Or should I let my hair down for my friends? And why is it that my blog friends are much better looking than my real friends?
