The Politics of Sales Professionals (Yes, Recruiters Too!)

February may give birth to “Super Tuesday” each year, but there’s another political process that takes place 365 days a year in corporations across the globe that is equally interesting to me.

Not many people love (or even like!) their jobs?

There was a discussion over on LinkedIn a couple weeks ago where Doug H asked,

“Why do people write angry emails at work?” There were several answers posted but this one, by Ray H, caught my attention:

“Not many people love their jobs...most dislike their job, feel unappreciated and underpaid. Although they may be good at their job, they don't like doing it. Others like their job, but aren't that good at it…”

Do you agree with this assessment? If so, what do you see as… Continue

Online Job Advertising Up In January (Just)

Recruitment advertising in the UK crept up in January, according to the born Job Advertising Index, but only just. The index experienced only a one point rise, up to 90 points from 89 points in December. Surprised? I was.

Oh Brother, Big Brother lacking in intelligence?

"We're looking at YouTube, which carries some unique and honest-to-goodness intelligence," said Doug…

something i may do .....i

A recent article I read .

Hump Day Humor 2/6


A Real Estate Salesman had just closed his first deal, only to discover that the piece of land he had sold was completely under water.

“That customer’s going to come back here pretty mad,” he said to his boss. “Should I give him his money back?”

“Money back?” roared the boss. “What kind of a Salesman are you!?! Get out there and sell him a houseboat!”
