Dex One Corporation

Unfortunately, we do NOT use outside recruiting assistance for our hires. Thank you for your interest!

Unemployment Rate is Like the McRib Sandwich

Our current unemployment rate is like the McRib sandwich. With a lot of

hype and marketing, the McRib was McDonald’s finest obesity marketing

scheme to date. It was a boneless pork patty shaped like it had bones.

Then it was slathered in BBQ Sauce, and eaten between a spongy sandwich

bun. Whenever the sandwich made a comeback tour, every teen, nerd, geek

and weed smoker communally grubbed on the McRib.

The unemployment rate made a comeback tour and hasn’t… Continue

Social Media Dementia...

It's a funny old world, recruitment. On the one hand, you have some recruiters talking about social media like it's the second coming. On the other, you have others saying its simply the recruitment equivalent of 'big hair' - a fashion fly by night that has a shorter life than your average cheap firework.

Rarely though, do you find a recruiter that champions social media in one breath, then goes on to snuff out its potential in another. So midly surprised was I, when I picked up the… Continue

Hello, Goodbye

In a recent post of mine that drew some parallels between David Mimet’s Glengarry Glen Ross and recruiting, I included a section called “Selling to the Nyborgs.” This section addressed the importance of being able to identify candidates that will talk the talk, but won’t walk the walk. In other…

The Intersection of Brand With Talent Migration

Funny thing. When you have actual, honest-to-goodness, freaking wonderful time to read, think, talk, and then digest all that delicious stuff into energy. When you

have time, you get to refuel. When you're as fascinated by every bright

and shiny object as me, that can mean a lot of tanking up.

I've found myself most fascinated - if I can find a…

Be Careful What You Wish For: You Just Might Get It!

We all know what it feels like to want to change jobs: work in a job we hate, or have lost our passion for, or simply had enough of the boss!! Sometimes that ideal new job seems elusive. The search may be discouraging and you are tempted to take just any job. However taking just any role may not be the right fit for you or the employer. We…

Cut and Paste – Done in Haste ends up in a Court Case.

Just recently the issue of cutting and pasting a job description into a job board to become an advertisement came to the fore in the UK when an IT Recruitment Consultancy inadvertently did just this except they left in a “sentence”: ‘Minimum six years of experience in IT . . . The person should be a UK citizen with security clearance from the UK Government. Preferably of Indian…

Confessions of a Job Seeker: What I learned!

For those who don’t know, I was a recent job seeker. Through hard work and perseverance, I found a great position with an innovative company called SmashFly Technologies. Through this recruiting journey, I learned a lot about both sides of the recruiting spectrum. By experiencing the ins and outs of the job search grind on a daily basis and more importantly actively seeking advice from job seekers and…

Recruiters must commit to excellence and consistently raising our standards when it comes to working with our clients.

I was screening an IT candidate the other night for a developer position with one of our Dallas IT clients and noticed that the resume he had emailed stated that he was a BA on his last 3 positions. I told him thanks for his resume, but my client needed a developer. He said he was a developer and I asked why his resume stated he was a BA. He said that the last Dallas IT Consulting/Recruiting firm he had spoken with had "tweaked" his resume to match a requirement one of their clients had open.… Continue

“I’m 52, With White Hair…But I’m Not DEAD!”

As a recruiter, I just have a few questions to ask for the sake of those who, like me, are beyond 50 years old. These questions are meant for serious debate, instead of an attempt to conjure argument:…

Social is dead. Long live the value web.

Now that the debate has moved on, from iphone apps towards a wider embrace of mobile platforms & of mobile

as another, although important engagement channel, let’s look ahead for a moment to a

future that at first glance might seem contradictory but is ultimately

stable and sound. A future in which, to borrow a phrase of Natasha Saxberg, the… Continue

The missing dimension in talent - yogurt

Choosing a yogurt...or choosing his future ?

I am delighted to share with you today research that I have been working for many months on removing pot luck from the selection process...through focusing on yogurt pots.

Imagine No Recruiters...I Wonder If You Can?

Every day I go over Putney Bridge on my way to work. This may seem like minutiae of my daily commute in South West London but this weekend Putney Bridge becomes the focus for millions of people all over the world. The reason?’s the starting point for the University Boat Race, and has been for 154 years.

Now you may think that two teams of amateur rowers from the UKs top 2 universities battling it out for 20 minutes over 4 ¼ miles is hardly a reason for so many people to be… Continue

The Rise of the Micro-Niche in the Great Recession

We've been discussing how the Great Recession started out as a massive credit collapse, resulting in a deflationary cascade. With declining wealth, incomes and revenues, people and corporations have had to embrace some extreme cost-cutting measures. As a result, the significant advances in technology over the last couple of decades are now being deployed in ways that are drastically changing the employment landscape.

Employment is not the only aspect of our economy that is being…
