So I am updated to Firefox 3.0 and with the exception of signature all of my favorite add-ons have been updated. It is these add-ons that make my life as a sourcer much easier. So below I have listed the addons I use and what they do for me.
Google Toolbar - Besides the search and the Google dog food here are what I believe to be the best reasons to use it. The site search button - you find a site that you want to explore. Instead of typing out site:webaddress.com you just press the… Continue

Sure, some say he was nice on me, even though I was SURE he was lurking... just waiting to HAMMER me.
Some say he should have investigated my threat against Shannon Underhill* more deeply.
But everyone agrees it sounded fun.
Either way, here is a nice link to check it out on your own:

Well, this is way past due but I am elated that we have been successful in getting the Maryland TECH TAX Repealed. We just attended a cocktail hour on Monday in Baltimore to celebrate and it was very impressive to see everyone who was involved with this joint effort. A HUGE thank you goes to Tom Loveland who headed up the campaign to save our Technology Services business in Maryland. He did a superb job in obtaining the right resources and lobbyists to help us accomplish this task of getting… Continue

Claudia Faust advises on tricky situations, answers members' questions...
This week Claudia helps "Fool Me Twice" get to grips with a slimy problem:
I followed up on a great resume this week that came in response to a posted position, and discovered to my amazement that the phone number was directed not to a candidate, but to an agency recruiter. I was shocked, but it gets worse...

I am a corporate recruiter who manages an average of 30 technical positions at any given time for my company. On a good day, let’s just say I barely have time to go to the bathroom. I followed up on a great resume this week that came in response to a posted position, and discovered to my amazement that the phone number was directed not to a candidate, but to an agency recruiter. I was shocked, but it gets worse: when I complained to the agency manager about the… Continue

Checking in on my train ride home - this will be another one of my 30 min blog ideas. My 'train' of thought is that if it takes me longer than my train ride home to come up with something to write and get it posted - it must not be what I should be blogging about. That said,… Continue

I love "My Name is Earl" - so much so that I named our new puppy Karma. I am not a believer in karma but I do believe that God's ways can be viewed as karma. I could go into the theological reasoning behind that but that's not important right now. Call it karma if you want, no sooner did I post my last blog about things not being so bad I went to my inbox and was linked to this article…

Just two years ago, advertising on social networking seemed to be an afterthought for most businesses, including employers looking to ramp up recruitment. But from 2006 to 2008, there has been a 70% increase in spending on this fast-growing medium, according to emarketer.com.
Social networking, the newest online recruitment tool, includes building and interacting within online communities designed for people who want to connect with others who share their interests. Depending on the… Continue

This doesn't have a lot to do with recruiting, other than to help me through an attitude adjustment and maybe provide some perspective for 2008 which has been a rough year. It seems the daily grind hasn't been this tough since 2001/2002. I've been moping around for about 90 days because business is off which means the paycheck is down and expenses are up (I never thought I'd have to spend $80 to fill a minivan full of gas). It's tight - I'm sure you can relate. And when it gets tight the… Continue

I am really interested in the concept of social media for the purpose of business growth, recruiting, etc. I thought that this would be the perfect venue to pose my question.
I would love to better understand what others feel about social media for business growth (i.e. linkedin, facebook, recruitingblogs, twitter, etc.). It has been challenging to make a business case to the management of my company for this activity. I'm very interested in hearing from folks who have made this… Continue

Our HR Consulting firm is currently working a selection project for a company based in the USA and soon to be securing a joint venture and will have an operation in Abu Dhabi.

If any one has any contacts or info to help me with this project please email me at email@example.com. Thanks!
