How are things?

I was wondering how folks around the network are feeling about the business these days. We have certainly felt the impact of the economy, but are fortunately still working on new orders. I am curious to know how things are going in other markets as well as other industries (we specialize in IT and A&F). Here in Atlanta we are also faced with a gasoline shortage, which has really impacted our ability to interview candidates. I'd love to hear how others are feeling about the market. Having… Continue

A bailout that has no chance of working

On news that Wachovia will be changing its logos soon, I proactively called some of my CitiRecruitingFriends to introduce them to my WachoviaRecruitingFriendsWhoAreNowNervousAboutTheirJobs. You know who you are so let's talk today, k?

It's frankly pathetic that the bailout plan has become another political football. Maureen shared a letter from one of her state reps that was replete with political doublespeak and inconsequential emotional junk yet failed to address the reasons how… Continue

Timeline for placements - Picking up steam

Well as any recruiter knows as the markets remain in flux the more work there is for us. Whether it be recruiting candidates whose companies just announced layoff, mergers or a buyout from the Fed or talking with companies that need to fill their vacant position quickly before they have it pulled from the budget.

So of course speed and timing in the placement process is of the essence, and that means candidates and companies who hesitate will lose out on getting the next job or… Continue

Recruiting in the Great Depression of 2009-20??

It has been several years since the more astute professional has seen gathering storm clouds across the horizon.

And, there are a multitude of reasons why not just the U.S., but the entire world, is facing extremely troubling times ahead. There's even talk that what lies ahead will be even more challenging than what our grandparents (and great-grandparents) faced during the 1920s.

Now is not the time for a weak heart or complacency. The mother of trouble is bred… Continue

Digging Into v1.20

Recruitfest: Track Leader Report

(Sep 26, 2008) I had a really good time at Recruitfest. The idea that a professional conference can be fun was a real eye opener. Maybe we should start to expect that networking is a success when it produces really big smiles.

The design of Recruitfest was pretty interesting. Each of four track leaders held court in a breakout room for much of the day. Same general topic, three different sessions. That way, participants had the chance to…

Spit the Dummy (Pacifier)!

Upset boy

So my son and I were playing golf last weekend with a couple of friends and one noticed some commotion on a nearby hole. We turned and watched as a player stormed off the tee box, threw his club high up into a nearby tree, and stomped on down the fairway. He then yanked off his glove, tore it into pieces, threw it on the ground and kept going. Now that's something you don't see every day!

Now this player was playing a game that obviously got the better of him. Of…

Why Mentoring should be higher on your Agenda

Every successful professional can recall the exact moment when the "seed" to succeed was planted by their mentor.

In most cases it was that moment you and someone kind enough to help your career forged a bond in mentorship. That one person you fondly remember as your first (and maybe only) mentor was the catalyst that woke you up to the potential that lay within your mind and soul. Your mentor was the person who showed you what you could become with effort and attentive skills to… Continue

One week ago today, I was at the Grand Festival of Recruiting! I will never forget it, and want to share a few of my experiences from that day...

So Thursday night I was up late packing my things for a weekend away from home... I had planned to drive my car half way to Toronto and park it at a friends house, but I was running late that morning, and literally RAN to catch my train out of Burlington. I arrived at the InterContinental, still in my flip flops, with minutes to spare. I… Continue
