Off topic: What love is to 4-8 year olds

I don't care if this is comes up in as being written by a 32 year old male who's living with his Mom - who still cooks and cleans for him; it's adorable...

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore

So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”

Rebecca (8)

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.

You just know that… Continue

Why Are There So Few Female Computer Scientists?

"When one looks at computer science in particular, however, the proportion of women has been falling. In 2001-2, only 28 percent of all undergraduate degrees in computer science went to women.

Data collected by the Computing Research Association showed even fewer women at research universities like M.I.T.: women accounted for only 12 percent of undergraduate degrees in computer science and engineering in the United States and… Continue

Got Milk? or Reminders? or Dialogue?

Remember The Milk - iPhone App Friday I was checking the analytics reports - web traffic, sources, trends, etc. - the usual geeky stuff. The idea behind taking a look at where people are arriving to from, figuring out exactly what they're clicking on, is fun for me. Think of it as a puzzle - especially since many of… Continue

I'm in love with my gadgets

But I think I may need therapy...

What I'm noticing about people and the dumbing-down thing is that we respond to the affordances of technology. If you send me a letter, my expectation is that I should answer within two to three weeks. If you send me a fax, I have the expectation that within two days I should be getting back to you. If you… Continue

When the going gets tough, recruiting cries "SHORTAGE!!!!!"

If you can't find talent for your IT/technical positions in a world that is reeling with layoffs, you have a problem. Or your hiring manager has a litany of issues. Or the people who could work for you have an inflated sense of salary.

Some think there really is a shortage and that offshoring is overblown. Yet those who are in the field believe...

Why You Need an Objective On Your Resume

I found a great video on YouTube by Susan Ireland, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Perfect Resume. In this video, Susan discusses why you need an objective on the top of your resume. I agree that it’s important for you to have a good one (see my post 7 Tips For a Great Resume). There are several reasons:

1. It lets the reader know what you want, instead of implying that you need help finding a spot. It’s a weak approach that won’t serve you well anywhere in the process,… Continue

The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding

The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding

Some of my favorites:

The Law of Expansion: The power of a brand is inversely proportional to its scope. Brands that spread themselves across categories lose brand focus, identity, and ultimately market share. Look at the career pages of company websites - sure sounds as if many are trying to be everything to everyone.

Lower your turnover rate by 6 times…..

Now that I have your attention…..Did you know that the turnover rate for employees under 30 is six times greater than that of employees that are over 50? Yesterday I blogged on about tough times, and if your are going to survive and more importantly thrive you need to become tough job seekers. Stay with me……

Overnight I pondered on how this applies to the world of recruiting and guess what it does and in more ways than one. As the labor markets as well as… Continue
