2 weeks ago, I was spending time with one of my friends who has a 13 year old. The 13 year old accidentally sent a text to her mom instead of her boyfriend when we were at lunch. It was something like, "i can't wait to see you either, I miss you so much, kisses!"
Naturally, we laughed our collective a$$e$ off at that one and she was mildly embarrassed when we all texted her back, although I swore I noticed a hickey the next day on both of them.
Like this story, this… Continue

I must say it is great to be back doing what I love and am great at. After a short almost 4 month hiatus, I am back making a difference in peoples lives again.
What is amazing is the number of phone calls I received in just the first week of employment from agencies looking to fill my positions. Isn't that why I was hired? Some agencies have particular expertise and I get the need. For others, I am less convinced.
After working the past 2+ years in the job board space, I… Continue

The staffing agency can be advantageous for several reasons. First, temporary help through a staffing agency does not require going through the hiring process. The company does not have to set up tax forms, with hold taxes or extend any benefits to the temporary personnel. All that is done through the staffing agency. This simplifies the process a great deal… Continue

One would have thought that in the 21st century the discourse about the role of gender in leadership would have been a story of the past. Nothing is further from the truth. In the recent U.S. presidential election, gender was used in the discourse to define effectiveness as a leader. Leadership has been traditionally defined as the ability to engage… Continue

Making Your Mark
(December 05, 2008) How many times can you say "Please keep the job postings on the job board." Maybe this would be clearer: "When you put your jobs in the blogs or the forums, you make the place less useful to the people who inhabit it".
I suppose you could say that "posting jobs anywhere but on the job board is rude and inconsiderate". You might frame it as "Anyone who doesn't take the time to understand RBC before posting risks looking like the morons… Continue

Seth Godin, author of The Dip, recently wrote a blog post entitled, "The 90/10 rule of marketing a job." He writes, "It only takes 10% as much effort to hire someone in the bottom 90% of the class. And it takes the other 90% to find and cajole and retain the top 10%." He asks why companies looking for the top 10% don't invest the resources necessary to attract and develop them.
I have my own personal theory on this matter. First, most hiring managers lack the patience and discipline… Continue

Although HR departments should be aware of questions that are illegal to ask prospective employees, some hiring managers aren’t so savvy. Many illegal questions are easy for just about anyone with elementary social graces to avoid, but others might surprise you. In general, you should not ask interviewees about their age, race, national origin, marital or parental status, or disabilities.
Note that this list offers only some very broad guidelines and is not exhaustive. Check with… Continue
