What's on the College Career Fair Menu? Make Your Company Stand Out

For a college student, entering a College Career Fair venue is like walking into a cafeteria. Both facilities are crammed with decisions, persuasion and the uncertainty of what to choose or where to turn next. Sure, students have to do some impressing, but at College Career Fairs, companies are the ones who possess the task of attracting top talent. Students and representatives from companies both play eminent roles in the career fair game. Students have to take off their sweats, conjure up a… Continue

online recruiting news.com launch

A year ago, I launched InternetRecruiting.us as a job board directory and invited job boards to join and post news. It was an interesting experiment but didn't really move me.

NEW IDEA

The same old job boards don't work (including spiders). We need to have a website with a new methodology to be able to connect candidates with job openings with more selectivity.

In Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, he tells us a story about one firm’s executive team struggling with utter dysfunction. Ineffective communication, multiple egos, fear, office politics and judgmental attitudes were all contributing to the absence… Continue
