just giving some "link love"

I ran across a website that is posting jobs for free. I am not affiliated with them. I am just wanting to help them spread the word. They are posting our jobs and have made us a premier employer; all free. They are doing so for the next six months and then who knows. As a sourcer, I think we have to try all means and this is certainly worth a try. So far we are already seen some traffic.

In case anyone is interested the website is…

Breaking the Job Ad code

Years ago, job advertisements were ways easier to decipher – their content was much simpler and it wasn’t hard to get the idea of what the suitable applicant should look like. Now, job seekers are challenged with a real jungle of different ad formats, content and sometimes incomprehensible means of expression. If you learn how to find your way through this…

1st Contest

I was lucky again to have won the last ERE Foundation Charity poker

tournament. There will be more, don’t worry. Because of my victory, I was able

to secure through a not so lengthy negotiation a number of Fordyce Letter subscriptions.

I want to have a contest now to see if we can come up with some great

recruiting content for the next week. The winner of the contest will

win a… Continue

Three Steps and a Breather

I don't think I've taken a four day break from blogging since I started this gig in '04.

However, being on the road last week put me three steps behind, so I've enjoyed taking a breather to catch up.

So, I got my three steps* back and I'm ready to roll.

More T-Mo jobs comin' next week - stay tuned.

*all that talk about "three steps" takes me back to the 8th grade and this… Continue

Secrets to Success...I got them!

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…

I think This CornFlake Has a Face

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…

Gerry Crispin and Blogs

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
