Let me start by saying I'm a Twitter fan, and think we've only begun to scratch the surface of it's potential.
That said, as my Twitter base grows and I politely try to follow back the majority of people that for some reason have decided to follow me, I've run into a frustrating situation.
I'm following close to 1000 people and it's beginning to feel very disconnected, like we're all talking at each other.
This is no doubt mostly my fault as I don't spend a ton… Continue

Involuntary part-time workers account for "...almost one in three of all part-time workers. Almost all the new involuntary part-time workers were formerly full-time workers accepting cutbacks in hours. Part-time employment invariably rises during recessions, but...the magnitude of the rise in this recession has been unprecedented since records were first kept in the 1950s. It also suggests that the jobs numbers and unemployment rate underestimate the extent to which employers have cut costs… Continue

It's been an interesting day. A busy busy day, which started in a flurried search for a phone hiding in my car and ending with me questioning my very worth... as I said... interesting day.
The flurry of the morning was compounded by an innocuous little quote in the book I'm reading. Now I won't quote it directly as it is fiction, and I cannot be bothered… Continue

During the current financial crisis many companies are being forced to retrench staff; and it’s in times like these that quality employees are holding onto their jobs. Generally these are the candidates that are making a valuable contribution to their current employer and are less likely to be considered for retrenchment. But these are exactly the types of skills that recruiters will need to hunt down if they want to ensure that they are hiring the best.

The American engagement in Iraq has been looked at from many perspectives — the flawed intelligence that provided the war’s rationale, the failed effort to secure an international mandate, the rapid success of the invasion, and the long ensuing counterinsurgency campaign. This book focuses on the activities of the Coalition Provisional Authority and its administrator, L. Paul Bremer, who governed… Continue

How can job boards even continue to exist? Because they connect job seekers and those who want to employ them. If a job board doesn’t do this simple task successfully, it eventually goes out of business.
But as any hiring manager, HR director, or recruiter knows, job boards are not the only solution. Why? Because the employment market is incredibly….random.
Think about it. If you’re a job seeker, you’re expected to know about the relevant job boards for your industry, the… Continue

The interview is one of the most crucial steps in the job search process. It allows everyone involved to get a better idea of each party and what they bring to the table. However, it can be difficult in determining what questions are best to ask in order to get a full understanding of someones competency. Below are suggested questions for an interviewer, but also are a great tool for the interviewee.

I recently asked one of recruitment managers about how do you form your recruitment strategy and he discussed various aspects about talent acquisition/management, sourcing, advertisements, referrals and so on. However, at the end of the discussion - I thought he looked outside so much that he completely forgotten about looking inwards. What do I mean?
For corporate recruitment departments, recruitment not only mean finding/interviewing/placing the candidates but it starts right from… Continue

This is my story. What I’m about to tell you are graphic details of my early days as an IT recruiter. If you can’t stomach this, then stop and read John Sumser's Recruiting 101 (actually, he blogs relevant stuff).
I was part of corporate experimental recruiting program in the late 90’s.
My job? Infiltrate a ring of IT user groups. Know them. Study them. Learn their habits and even live with them. I did just that for years. But then, something went terribly… Continue

Back in 1982, the number of H-1 visas was unlimited – can you imagine? All professionals were eligible for H-1 visas. There was no maximum duration for H-1s either and employers could petition for H-1 workers all year long. The program did not generate anywhere near the amount of controversy that it does today. It was a market-based system which allowed employers to fill jobs in a global economy – a relatively simple program.
The Immigration Act of 1990 started the government control… Continue
