The changing demographics of our country have been making headlines. As the population ages and baby boomers begin to retire, labor shortages seem imminent and in some cases, potentially catastrophic. Most of the forecasts focus on a dwindling pool of applicants for entry level positions. However, leading edge health care organizations also have to be able to replace key leaders with little interruption to the business.
A number of hospitals and health networks are turning to… Continue

You know your job board or career site isn’t perfect, right? (And if you don’t, I’m sure you can find someone that will tell you that). In fact, perfection can be pretty annoying, particularly when it manifests itself as a ‘rule’ or ‘mandate’.
But…perfection has its place. Let me explain.
A job board (or honestly, any decent web site) is never ‘done’. It’s always a work in progress. You add that job seeker forum you always wanted – and now you need a Twitter feed. But what… Continue

IBM owns everything except your soul, and that will change once we are replaced by Replicants (see BladeRunner). But in the meantime, you want a job there. Bro, you don’t care if it entails wiping down urinals; you want a job recruiting for IBM.
Big Blue earned 4,185 patents in 2008. That’s more than Google, Apple, Microsoft, HP and Oracle combined. That like… Continue
It certainly has been a while since I've done any active posting, and while I've enjoyed taking in some of the posts and discussions as a lurker figured it is about time I put something out there of my own again.
Over the past couple of months there have been a couple of big wins and some equally disappointing mishaps. Oddly enough, I find myself crediting and blaming the same thing in both instances...the process. My recruiting team has a very well-defined process by which a manager… Continue
The term ‘social recruiting’ is soooooo hot right now. It’s on the lips of recruitment commentators, consultants, recruiters, and vendors. There is even a global wave of conferences and seminars on the topic.
So what does social recruiting mean? Well, from my observations, it… Continue
I have some indelible memories, like when my daughter was born and the day I got Google Voice. The Sun broke through dark clouds and I was totally like thank you Jesus! Finally, I can make free VOIP calls anywhere in the U.S with free SMS messaging!
Queue the Gary Wright’s “Dream Weaver” and slip away from away from all this high unemployment shouting, “I have Google Voice! I have Google Voice!”
It's funny, people are always asking me about what I see inside my crystal ball, where are things headed in the market or what's hot? They seem to be intersted in the newest tricks, places to go on the web, social networks and how to find the best talent. My first thought is usually that before you do anything new you have to first look at all the tricks and tools you already have.
The truth is that I really don't have anything new to tell people about. Most of my thoughts and… Continue
I’m into tools. I’m not talking the software kind, but the kind you can hold in your hand. I like the weighty feel of a 22 oz. framing hammer. The kind you can really use to bash stuff, with the life-saving pick-axe-like claw at the end. (In the event you start falling, you slam that sucker into the roof and then hold on!) Or, the fluid motion of a chop saw. Or, the rhythmic-clicking of a socket wrench. All that may sound funny… Continue
I have been giving a lot of thought to dropping Facebook for personal use. Don’t get me wrong, it is really fun. Everyone knows girls (and boys) just want to have fun! I had originally joined with the idea of using it just for business, as I do with Twitter, LinkedIn, and many others, but slowly found that all my friends were on Facebook. We started conversing about our personal lives. I had a few business consultants say it was good to let your customers see the more “playful” side of… Continue
