But honestly, how can you ignore a 10 billion dollar industry that is expected to grow to 25 billion in the next five years. Companies are hard pressed to find people who can do the work.

Quote for the Day: Thursday, July 26th
"Our education system is driving a massive wedge between the upper and lower classes in America, splitting the middle class between those willing to mortgage their futures to get into the right school district and those who either can’t afford, or think it is imprudent, to take that kind of risk. The fault line that is being created by a lack of corporate recruiting competence is leaving the poor completely behind. They can’t… Continue

So I was excited about SourceCon challenge #2, as it appears I was a close runner-up to Mike Notaro who won Challenge #1 and I was determined to find the answer to the second challenge.

I have been up to my neck in employee performance reviews for the past two weeks, so needless to say, I am a little behind on all the gossip. But, I just came across the hullaballoo regarding Karen M and the ERE. All I can say is: "Seriously?" I mean, how does something get to that point? Aren't we all professionals? And adults?

"If talent acquisition is to be the linchpin for how HR finds, develops and retains employees that drive their firm’s performance, then Staffing is truly the lead element in the war for talent and, for most, it is unequipped to do its job, poorly trained to operate as a team and poorly organized for the mission at hand."

Sitting here in DC looking out the window at the hottest day of the year so far (suppose to hit 100 with about 50% humidity) I was thinking about the heat warnings they issue. You know on the news and the radio: "drink plenty of water, don't lock your dogs in the car, don't run or…
