Digging Into v1.29

Digging Into v1.29

(Dec 12, 2008) Where does Twitter stop and Facebook start? Where does the web of social media begin and end? Is Twitter a part of RBC? LinkedIn?

I would have scoffed at these sorts of questions as recently as earlier this week.

Things I learned as a 16 year old that help me now!

Learnings that last a lifetime.

I did work experience as a 16 year old Grad 10 student. I dutifully put on my best outfit, nice shirt, pressed pats, skinny leather tie (it was the fashion) and turned up at the local city council to spend time in their Accounts Department and to be honest... I was bored to death, no one would talk to me (unless I instigated conversation, which as a young boy in a world of grown ups, some of which were parents of my friends, wasn't easy), they gave me… Continue

Give yourself a performance review

I consider myself an experienced - actually very experienced - recruiter. I have over 15 years of experience and I have worked independently for most of that time. Only newbies benefit from rigorous programs like counting calls placed, messages left, emails sent and contacts made, right? Wrong!

I decided to count my calls for a few days to see if it would have an impact on my productivity and my results. I was actually shocked at the results. I got a lot more done when I forced… Continue

And his heart grew three sizes that day...

I’ve been talking with people in various stages of panic over the past few weeks (ummm, months..?), from those beginning to hear the rumblings of imminent layoffs, to those just having felt the axe drop, to those having found themselves on the market for longer than they expected or are comfortable with.

A Contractor's Nightmare

As more and more projects are being canceled due to lack of funding, i.e. Conoco Phillips 6 billion dollar ‘my bad’ from last month. The market is now saturated with many contractors who used to sit on their thrones made from stacks of per diem money as they got paid their “Texas money”, are now faced with the harsh realization that the very teat that used to feed from have dried up!

See the previous blog entry here.

So on to the weekend!
