Contingencies on an offer aren’t a joke

I heard a mortgage horror story the other day from a friend as he was buying a new house and selling his town home. He had arranged to have back to back closings to make it easy, but as it came time to close on the sale of his house the buyer was a no show…it seems that he had just lost his job and now was not in a position to qualify for the loan, much less make the payments. He very quickly was put in the position where he was being pressed to make a decision on signing his closing papers… Continue

Tony Snow Teaches Recruiters

Kris Dunn learned this from the president's press secretary:



Critics should prove they can do better

Tony criticized the president's communication policy and was willing to step in to to fix someone else's mess when asked. (Don't criticize unless you can do better?)



If you're nice, your enemies will be nice, too.

Tony took the "high road" when he could have… Continue

Captain-Save-A-Candidate to the Rescue!!!! ("Up, up, and away!")



Ok, well . . . not really. In putting on my cape this morning, I looked in the mirror and realized I more resembled these lil' fellas than the Superman cartoon character :P



Which leads me to ask . . . do you think a candidate would more trust one of these guys or the super-buff, super-slick, original Superman?



How about Gen-Y versus a Boomer?



With all the time spent on the art of neuro-linguistics programming,… Continue

"It's me. Can you hear me?" The VoIP argument.

Re: For those using VoIP for your home and/or office lines: are you having issues lately?



This is a really interesting subject to me. I hear the argument all the time from would-be telephone sourcers who want to use VoIP.



"Go ahead," I say.



"But it works just fine!" they insist.



"No it doesn't," I reply.



"Yes it… Continue

Are "Social Media Experts" the old black?

John Sumser's daily roundup linked to Louis Gray's "Social media experts are the new webmasters" post with which I disagree on just about everything except the punctuation.



I won't argue that the title of "webmaster" carries a tinge of the information-age equivalent of a locomotive fireman, but unlike that example, it's not because the work has disappeared. Most webmasters in their heyday… Continue

Why You Should Include HTML Text In Your Emails

Why You Should Include HTML Text In Your Emails

by Aaron Smith , Thursday, July 17, 2008



I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION that most email marketers were well aware of the advantages of including HTML text - also known as system text - as opposed to graphical text in their messages. But I am still frequently surprised to see emails in my inbox from well-established players that rely almost exclusively on images to convey the main point of the message.



Alas, long gone are the… Continue

Northern California Here I Come

I always thought it would be retirement that brought me to No Cal. And then I sold my business. And then my teenager told me that he wanted to go to school in Cali. And then I just so happened to be visiting for 2 weeks. And then I just happened to be launching a software as a service recruiting and selection tool. Holy Cow, maybe this is supposed to be.



I came home and told everyone; kids (one was with me), son in San Antonio, Mother, Brother, Sisters, Friends...and no one is trying… Continue

Interviewing Insight: Don't Miss the Tipping Point

Author of nearly a dozen books, Jeffrey Fox shares, “The job interview is a sales call to sell yourself." The goal of the interview is for the hiring company to “buy” you. At which point you receive an offer letter, you have a clear picture of the exact value of the transaction. However, the decision to buy happens long before the offer letter.
