The energy was alive, pulsating, and electric. That's what happens when 50 like-minded people gather to discuss HR and blogging. We discussed how we learn to use social media to disseminate a message, open the streams of communication, and transform the way we blog and thus communicate with our colleagues, employees and friends.
Over the next few weeks, I plan to interview the conference planners, presenters and a few of the guests. What I want to offer you is a flavor of the… Continue

You’re off to the big conference, your booth is ready and the iPhone is charged but do you know how to utilize Twitter to squeeze every possible opportunity out of this conference?
1. Identify Yourself!
Any technology conference that is not held out of someone’s garage will have a hashtag associated with it. Hashtags make your tweets more easily searchable and let readers know what content your tweet will include. Confused? Search #hrtech on Twitter or twitterfall.com and… Continue

If you are in a relationship, or know someone who is, you’ve quite likely experienced first or second hand the “We”
love that restaurant. We
always listen to Jazz. We
are trying to get pregnant. There’s a time and a place for every pronoun – But when it comes to your spouse’s job search, save the “we”
for your favorite kind of pizza.
Last week I got an interesting call. I had been working with a… Continue

What do you want from your job right now? Maybe you just want a job. It’s not so much that you have to settle for the next best thing that comes along, It’s not like they are banging down the door offering you a job either. Sometimes you crave for just a little more. But who can you trust in knowing whether the decision to want something more is the right one? If you can’t trust yourself who can you trust? Sometimes all you want is a little, bigger, better and yes, a career with some… Continue

One of the most fun and stressful parts of being a recruiter is when a candidate you feel very strongly would be a good fit for a position meets the client for the very first time. One of my candidates had a big interview last week and I thought to myself “When was the last time I had this same feeling”? Then all of a sudden it hit me… it was when I returned to my hometown and brought my first serious girlfriend from college to meet my parents.
Looking back in time I thought it was… Continue

Be honest. You had a pager once. Admit it. It was your alarm clock in the morning. You had proudly clipped it on your belt everyday. You asked all your clients, candidates and friends to page you. You were a sophisticated jet setting Recruiter. If only your pager were a human, you would’ve made love to it nightly.
Then one day somebody got a mobile phone. You had to have one too. It was huge and weighed 15 pounds but you didn’t care, you bought it anyways. Your first… Continue

We didn't start the fire

Even though the staffing industry is a dominant contributor to our Gross National Product with nearly $100B in annual revenues, accounts for a massive piece of internet traffic, and directly touches practically everyone... Recruiters and staffing professionals still suffer from an identity crisis.
