Ever go to a kid's birthday party that had a pinata? You know, you are blind-folded, spun around, handed a broomstick or baseball bat and told to "Swing!" I hated that game. Sure, some may find it fun to blindly swing a hard wooden object into the darkness and hope you hit something (or someone, if one of the kids at the party was one that shared their lunch with that boy you liked, maybe) and a bunch of candy pours out while everyone cheers for you.

Advertisers are getting into the game -- the video game. There’s no doubt that the ability to deliver advertising into games that are connected to the internet represents a massive opportunity. The question is will in-game advertising prove to be an attractive channel for recruitment advertising?…Continue
No being unemployed is not an ideal position from a financial (or mental health) perspective, but looking at this situation as an IT recruiter they have the best situation in which to view all of their options and make the best decision for their career. So the question that begs to be asked is why do so few take advantage of their situation?
Here recently I’ve dealt with a few individuals who have been caught up in the proverbial downsizing/outsourcing at their…

I have spent the last few days in NYC, and I have to say I was impressed. I felt safe and enjoyed the sites. Someone on the subway even did a good deed.

I may have some news in the coming months, I went to Silver Cup Studio productions as well…Continue
