Many people don’t know what to say to the sourced names we provide. Because these names are many times the truly “passive” candidate some recruiters who’ve been reared on resume farming are “reluctant” to call someone who isn’t actually “looking”.

Just recently I watched it again on a lazy Sunday afternoon and was reminded of this piece I wrote, though not sure where (or if) I ever posted it. I offer it now for your amusement.

I have worked the corporate side also where, yes, you get a few calls from recruiters trying to drum up work. I always try to treat them with respect, and it doesn’t take… Continue

The unemployment rate dipped slightly from 5.1 in March to 5.0 in April and we experienced more job cuts as well as core working hours are being cut more and more.
Some positive gains were tracked in healthcare services last month, reflecting 37,000 new jobs as well as professional services (office jobs), which was up 39,000.
The interesting thing is that the underemployment rate has jumped dramatically to 5.2 million workers who are currently involuntarily employed on a part… Continue

For those of you out there who aren’t bilingual English/French, the direct translation is “The Spirit of the Stairs” or “The Wit of the Stairs.” The phrase is a French colloquialism originating from the witticisms of Dennis Diderot, a French author of encyclopedias. Essentially, it describes the response to an insult or cutting remark, when it comes to late to be useful. Romantically, a spirit that comes to you on the stairs, as you leave a party, telling you what you should have said when… Continue
