Can anyone help me here? I am aware of Sourcepoint, but don't know the rest - any thoughts? Is there functionality in today's Sourcing apps that you'd like to see? Are there methods that would make your life easier, meaning ranging from search string generation to campaign management? I know Salesforce.com can be configured . . . but unless you're purchasing a comprehensive solution (add-on), customizing SF can be rough.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

One time, my husband and I went to Puerto Rico and, since my foreign language classes consisted of Latin and French (read: useless), I was a bit worried about the prospect of Spanish. He assured me that he was On. It. His extensive training in high school and college Spanish would fare us well.Flash forward to our vacation…going through the drive through line at Burger King (again).

When you stop to think about it, perception is an extremely powerful branding tool. It can make or break you. It never ceases to amaze me how well social media enables us to brand ourselves, our company and/or our service.
But there are some downsides to branding and perception via social media.
Here’s my story:
A few weeks ago, I received a note from Twitter that @Tweet05 (not his real name to protect his identify) was following me.

In the Q & A section on LinkedIn, few questions should have as much impact as the one that follows:
This is just a reminder to focus on what really matters.
So much time today is focused on work and more work. At times we forget about those who are most important to us. My question is - "Who do you love? How do they know?"

There I was 40 feet in the air, having just climbed the pirates net to the top of the high ropes course. Sitting on the perch looking at where to go next, it occurred to me that I was scared x&*%less.
I called to “Big Dog,” the group leader, and asked what I do next. His response was to “follow your instinct”. For 23 years in recruiting I followed my instinct and for the most part it led me the right way. Other times that old instinct got me in trouble. “What if my instinct is… Continue

Well, it wasn't too long ago I wrote a post here about how potentially my company was changing the perception it has of its Recruitment Division.... Maybe I was a little early in my prediction.
I have been a little disappointed in recent reactions I'm afraid, and for those who may read this with the hope of getting some pearls of wisdom, you too could be disappointed, it has the potential to become just a me venting session... (my apologies in advance)

It's Independance day and I can think of no better way to spend it than with family and friends.

It's 4th of July, a national holiday in the US, NOT in Argentina. As I am sitting in our office, I take my own 4th of July break to think about a LinkedIn post that was brought to my attention by Maureen Sharib - to whom I am very thankful for so openly sharing her ideas and insights about sourcing/recruiting.
The LinkedIn question was "Which of these 10 hiring/interviewing mistakes is the most important one to your eyes?" Click… Continue

Happy 4th of July, RBC - remember, as Robert Kiyosaki puts best, "It's un-American to pay taxes." Hey, we weren't after independence just for independence's sake!
So I came across an interesting article this morning on FastCompany.com (color me surprised!) titled, "The Texas Rangers' Young GM

Happy Interdependence Day
A community is forming in this little outpost called RecruitingBlogs.com. Somehow, the space is overcoming its very name. Imagine trying to sell houses in a town called "Ya Gotta Be A Writer To Live Here".
While the moniker implies one kind of involvement, the reality is quite different. RecruitingBlogs.com (RBC) is a place for experimentation. Its inhabitants are trying new things every day.
The first experiment is the one Dave Mendoza calls… Continue
