Good days and bad days but I think we are all still doing quite well. Just remember, those who survive this will come out stronger then ever! Be innovative, underpromise and overdeliver.

These two words should be part of your daily work schedule just as you check your email for resumes or your ATS for candidates. Recruiting can't be viewed as merely a relationship (although if more viewed recruiting as a relationship activity rather than something that closes a job order or gets an opening off the books, this would be a very big step).
In today's Financial Times,… Continue

I loved this recent article in the Wall Street Journal about the power of Christina Binkley's lucky suit. Not because I'm a fan of St. Johns--I'm not. Too difficult to pull off and, in my opinion, too dowdy. And not because I advocate spending that much on a suit--it would be fun but it's unnecessary.
I love this article because Christina has a great outfit in her closet that clearly makes her feel on top of the world, confident, and successful. My theory is the "maître d" can't tell… Continue

Also, find people through Twitter Search for example that talk about topics you are interested in, and start conversations with them. Last week I highlighted a business from a friend that offers mediation services. My friend got people contacting him through my one Twitter post. Just 140 characters can result in closed business for you or someone else.

Certain predicted technological revolutions are more myth than reality.
After all, TV phones and laserdiscs were hailed as the wave of the future and yet, despite influencing today's technology, they've gone by the wayside.
Social networking sites might have seemed as if they'd follow the same route, but all signs suggest they're here for the long haul.
Employers are checking job applicants' profiles on sites like Facebook,… Continue

Millions of people have been queried, invited and even cajoled into joining the business social network LinkedIn. And more than 30 million of them have accepted. But while we knew LinkedIn members used the site for business reasons -- vs. the more purely social networks such as Facebook or MySpace -- we didn't know exactly who they were. Some are looking for jobs, others… Continue

Low cost providers do well in market downturns. McDonalds and Wal-Mart both posted topline growth in October. This demonstrates that the right market positioning (”Dollar Menus” and “Every day low prices”) can permit a company to make share of wallet gains in very competitive markets. In this environment, Value is the key USP. For recruitment… Continue

The value of retiree's savings along with their homes has fallen and this coupled with inflation and the huge costs associated with health care** has resulted in many finding they must return to work if they are to live a lifestyle any where near what they planned. Unfortunately the current job market is such that it is particularly difficult to find employment regardless of age.
A number of retirees have found it is possible to get a part-time or temporary job or project assignment.… Continue
