In between some satire, there always seems to be some seriousness in conversations about online authority. Some social media participants want to measure this stuff, even if it for the sole purpose of vanity or perhaps selling snake oil.
There is enough of it that Jennifer Leggio lent a near perfect expose entitled "Twitter popularity does not equal business acumen" on ZDNet. The article mentions several reasons that online popularity doesn't equal much of anything. Her hope was to… Continue

Want to be a smart recruiter? Do the OPPOSITE of this!
- Fling resumes at job orders without talking to candidates. Clients LOVE receiving unqualified resumes and Candidates Love having their resume sent to companies without your permission.
- Submit candidate resumes to clients without qualifying them.
- Do NOT under ANY circumstances waste your time keeping the submitted candidate apprised of the status of the job order!
- And for heaven's sake,…

This is a blog post that I wrote for my healthcare Board Chairs and Hospital CEOs in September. Before I discovered this wonder group. As we prepare to jump to 2009, I thought I would share it with you, my colleagues, in hopes of generating some comment on how we can move recruitment to the next level of performance in 2009.
The definition of a good leader is a work of art.
The definition of a bad leader is a tragedy.
A major hospital is ready to… Continue

Okay, so she's not 16 (perhaps a multiple but as one who is also a multiple of 16...plus - I can say these things) but it's still her birthday. Who?

The best person to sell a new job to a candidate is the one who is actually doing the job right now. Selling by brochure, by company values, or by marketing material is simply less effective.
Instinctively we all agree with this, but how do we know it is true?. Surely there is value to selling the company hard, and creating some excitement about the position. Well, there is actual research to back the idea that an honest approach is the best approach.
The psychological… Continue

A brilliant yet (smart) recruiter goes beyond the obvious in qualifying not only the candidate(s) but the client(s) as well. Where some recruiters fall short is in not truly knowing both the client and candidate to make the deal happen.
Now please understand that not all clients and candidates are truthful in acceptance and intentions and/or other offers, etc; now some clients don’t like to share other candidates skill sets (ranking in better qualified candidates) in the process. A… Continue

ABC, NBC and Fox all drawing around a million viewers less each night than they did last season. CBS is the one network that has improved from last season, up 1% in viewership.
Among the 18-to-49-year-old audience sought by advertisers, there are also declines. Both ABC and Fox are down 14%, while NBC is down 9% and CBS is down 3%.
Yet advertisers are still plowing money into… Continue

What motivates me and makes me a smart Recruiter is that I consider it an honor to be a catalyst, facilitating the meeting of people who need each other, so that they can move forward together to accomplish their personal, professional and financial goals.
I am sincerely curious about people and they love that attention. I really do want to know who they are deeply and I give them the time and space to reveal themselves to me. This enables me to make strong matches. It creates trust… Continue

Because I understand that in order to play the games I like to play, drive the truck (yes - truck) I like to drive and live like I enjoying living - I must ring the cash register.
Yes - I have said it. It isn't about getting along or wanting the best for everyone!
It is about ringing the cash register.
Making the sale - sending the invoice and cashing the check.
I don't like to be told what to do - therefore - must be self employeed.
