I’ve been in the job board world since 1998, which probably makes me some sort of dinosaur or masochist. Strangely enough, the imminent death of job boards has been proclaimed almost since their inception.
Today is no different. Whether it’s here or here or here, the word on the street (or in the blog, as it were) is that the job board’s days are numbered because of a changing employment environment, Twitter, job board greed and incompetence, a surplus of recruiters, social networks,… Continue

"When you are older you will know that life is a long lesson in humility.”
- James M. Barrie
Today’s economy has been tough for all age groups, but it can be argued that it has been toughest on older workers, the “boomer generation”. Yes, according to the Labor Department, the jobless rate right now IS lower for older workers than it is for younger workers. But that appears to be changing as the unemployment rate continues to climb.
There are a lot of reasons… Continue

"Yeah I've Recruited before. I had to hire people for my team. I know what you do, its your core job, what do you mean you cannot hire everyone we think we need? I mean I know how difficult it can be at times. But I read the news, I know what is going on in the world, this isn't one of those times. You're job must be easy now. There must be candidates everywhere, I mean how hard can it be to hire in a recession"…

The world is beckoning, "Come Tweet With Me!" MySpace, FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter have become household names in a span of a few years. The rate in which change happens used to be measured in decades, five year plans and terms of office. Now, we measure change in nano-seconds, or at least as fast as your last tweet. What is happening to the world of communication? I don't know if we should all be excited or mildly confused? We know we have grown into a community that wants it quicker, faster,… Continue

I'm not a recruiter right now. I once was. I may be again someday.
I remember that it was tough to get past gatekeepers and get the attention of hiring managers. I was good at it. But, it still S*%^ED.
So, I offered a recruiter a way to connect with virtually any senior HR executive or hiring manager using a very positive, non-threatening approach that virtually assured a face-to-face meeting. Interestingly, he declined. He didn't argue that the approach wouldn't work. He… Continue
