Six Degrees from Delicious

It's that time again: Thanksgiving is tomorrow

And The Early Show offered a heaping helping of help to anyone getting set to make a turkey for the big day -- as three great chefs shared their secrets for making the perfect turkey.

Personally, my receipe is a bit exotic:

At the El Dave home, I cook all day and I arrange the following:

One stick Butter

Chicken Broth

Wine Bottle


Orange Juice

A Family Memory

Waking to the sweet smell of celery and onion cooking in my mother’s big black iron skillet on the stove I remember a child's almost hysterical excitement under all the hustle and bustle of a holiday's preparation. The always-huge pink turkey would be splayed on the kitchen counter, marinated, washed, patted dry and rubbed with salt, pepper and sage, waiting to receive its stuffing; a miraculous tasting (even raw!) mixture of bread crumb, sage, onion,… Continue

Opportunities for professional growth in a slowing economy, I'm looking inward...

I'm not exactly a newbie to RecruitingBlogs, rather I've been a passive “lurker” for some time. Thanks to some of the more regular contributors on the site and their almost startling openness, something has awoken in me that wants to get more involved, to let my voice be heard. I don't imagine I'm the only one who has wondered just how to go about "putting themselves out there" and what it truly means to do so. I’m very glad to have a forum such as this to learn so much from.

So in… Continue

Shift Keeps Happening

Dear Claudia,

My company is merging with a competitor, and after attending some transition meetings I'm really concerned about the culture clash that is happening between the two companies. The business leaders may be in favor of this deal, but the rest of the employees are not at all convinced. I recruited most of our employees in the last five years, and many are already starting the process of posting resumes and looking for new jobs. What can I do to stem the…

Recuitment in Crisis - Rise to the challenge!

The balance of power has shifted – and not just in the White House. As Obama takes his seat in the oval office, he looks out over a world economy in tumult – and a recruitment industry finally feeling the effects.

Where once, confident financiers sat deliberating the next sky-high step for their salaries, now, quivering bankers fill recruitment agency waiting rooms, not knowing where their next pay-cheque may come from. The financial industry is just one of a glut of traditionally… Continue

Social Networks: Virtual Organize It, Stupid!

Social Networks: Virtual Organize It, Stupid!

by Pierre Coupet

No doubt you've heard of the tongue-in-cheek expressions, "Keep it simple, stupid!" and "It's the economy, stupid!" However, in today's day and age, the appropriate mantra for those who belong to social networks should be, "Virtual organize it, stupid!". Let me tell you why:

Great Investment of Time & Effort

You spend a great deal of time joining social… Continue

Just to laugh

A young couple is golfing one day on a very exclusive course lined with million-dollar houses. On the third tee, the wife slices her shot right through the large front window of the biggest house along the course. They walk up, knock on the door, and hear a voice say, “Come on in.” Opening the door, they see glass everywhere and a broken bottle lying on the floor.

A man on the couch says, “Are you the people who broke my window?” The husband begins to apologize, but the man cuts him… Continue

VisualCV - Continuing to build your online Brand

More thoughts on Sales Skills are Life Skills

I found the replies to my last post interesting...

Rayanne's comment went straight to my point; how many people have that negative view of "sales"? Yet, if we communicate at all - we sell. (see Sales Skills are Life Skills)

It is definitely not about "selling someone" and I understand where Ben is coming from. That being said, to lump all into "you Americans" is not exactly fair. I think Jim's point lends to motivation and persistence. Our solutions may not help everyone.… Continue
