Why aren’t there female medical sales managers?

This question was posted on my LinkedIn page, along with these comments:

Person with question says:

My company is a perfect example of a large scale device organization with few women. Only 1 woman in an executive position and none in upper management. I have spoken with some women who say they were discouraged from pursuing management positions and have been passed over, for less qualified men.

My conclusion/response:

1. Fewer women in the sciences (narrows the… Continue

Ever been to West Virginia?

If you are reading this, the answer to my question in most likely "no". And for this fact, I am writing this blog. West by God Virginia is known for its "small town" appeal. Down home ethics and friendly neighbors make up the majority of our state. But where does this leave us in today's ever growing technology? And where does this leave me with my profession? I could easily move away as the thousands of others have, but then who would iniciate the CHANGE? Not to change the image of our state,… Continue

What DoesYour Age Say About Your Personal Brand?

On this topic of image let’s discuss some very specific issues related to age.

Thanks for everything, we're laying you off

So here's the deal: There are a lot of people facing lay offs these days, and as of last Wednesday, I am in the same unfortunate boat, which for a lot of us has a hole in it and is already filled with a lot of water, especially during the holidays. I thought, well if this is going to happen, I may as well share the experience on my blog since there are a lot of emotions involved, and it may be helpful for some of you out there.

So I will be posting daily logs on the following things,… Continue

Call for input on Lay offs as an excuse !!! Really????

We have all heard about the economy, the slow down, the massive layoffs expected and the of course the bailouts of large financial organizations failings, etc.

This weekend a brief comment was thrown over a shoulder of a pretty important person, saying that he thought much of the layoffs in Mass. were an excuse for some large companies to downsize and get rid of overhead, people and failing projects. Really an excuse??? My response, I could see 10% of employee population but how… Continue

Upfront or Rude? Is "online me" just plain mean?

Still focusing on candidate experience, I began thinking today about communication style and its role in developing relationships with candidates. My train of thought was de-railed by visions of the application of this question in my newer pursuits of social networking for recruiting. Social media has added a whole new layer to communication with potential recruits in our industry. But this doesn’t mean that the skills we’ve all honed to deal with people via all of our other modes of… Continue

Tax Accounting Professionals

I am engaged to do some strategic recruiting for a regional cpa firm that is experiencing growth, and very genuine professional and financial opportunity for aspiring tax specialists.

References; Best Practices


I am writing an article on references for my newsletter and thought it would be fun to poll other recruiters. I would like to hear your thoughts regarding best practices for references. Specifically, how do you make sure you are legally compliant, do you have set questions you ask (i.e. behavioral, technical, etc), do you allow confidential references, do you accept letters of recommendations in place of references, how long do you keep reference data on file,… Continue

Recession 2009

The statistics are chilling...

In November 2008, 533,000 Americans lost their jobs, the most in 34 years, according to a Dec. 5 report from the U.S. Labor Department. Job losses this year so far are 1.91 million.

We're all busy, but does anyone have any thoughts on how recruiters may be able to assist the growing number of unemployed individuals?

I’m Nervous, You’re Nervous, Everybody is Nervous…GOOD!

The consensus suddenly is that clients are putting the brakes on hiring and job orders are shrinking. I am hearing that the client driven mantra to outside recruiters is that “the economy is terrible, we need to tighten our belts and there are a lot of good candidates out there.” Attitude is 99% of this game and if you want to see doom and gloom, that is your prerogative. However, where there is chaos there is opportunity and right now there is a tremendous amount of opportunity for great… Continue

Communication - Collaboration - Conversation - Community

Communication - Collaboration - Conversation - Community

What do these terms mean to you?

To me they represent the data shift that we have seen over the past few years; it represents the need to share information and the need to touch as many people as possible for no real specific reason. It’s about having the feeling that you belong; the feeling that your thoughts and work are respected and needed. It’s the impact that you have on your peers and the idea that your… Continue

Ever sent a text to the wrong person?

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

Back in the recruiting game....

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....


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…
