I love "My Name is Earl" - so much so that I named our new puppy Karma. I am not a believer in karma but I do believe that God's ways can be viewed as karma. I could go into the theological reasoning behind that but that's not important right now. Call it karma if you want, no sooner did I post my last blog about things not being so bad I went to my inbox and was linked to this article…

Social networking puts a fresh face on traditional recruiting

Just two years ago, advertising on social networking seemed to be an afterthought for most businesses, including employers looking to ramp up recruitment. But from 2006 to 2008, there has been a 70% increase in spending on this fast-growing medium, according to

Social networking, the newest online recruitment tool, includes building and interacting within online communities designed for people who want to connect with others who share their interests. Depending on the… Continue

Putting this year in perspective

This doesn't have a lot to do with recruiting, other than to help me through an attitude adjustment and maybe provide some perspective for 2008 which has been a rough year. It seems the daily grind hasn't been this tough since 2001/2002. I've been moping around for about 90 days because business is off which means the paycheck is down and expenses are up (I never thought I'd have to spend $80 to fill a minivan full of gas). It's tight - I'm sure you can relate. And when it gets tight the…

Social Media for Business/Recruiting

I am really interested in the concept of social media for the purpose of business growth, recruiting, etc. I thought that this would be the perfect venue to pose my question.

I would love to better understand what others feel about social media for business growth (i.e. linkedin, facebook, recruitingblogs, twitter, etc.). It has been challenging to make a business case to the management of my company for this activity. I'm very interested in hearing from folks who have made this… Continue

So we find ourselves gracefully at rule #2:

"Never Take a NO From Someone Who Can’t Give You a YES" - Unknown

Congrats, Libby...You're My All-Star Too!

Every now and then I stray, unashamedly, from the work-related stuff. Tonight is one of those occasions. Just had to give some love to my 2nd oldest daughter, who helped lead her softball team to first place in their division. And, she was voted to represent her team in the All-Star Game this weekend.

Yep, I'm a proud Dad. And even if she didn't smash the ball farther than anybody in the league...and, even if she didn't have the best glove in the league...I'd still shower her with… Continue

Everything you wanted to know about placing contractors... just ask!

When I started as a recruiter in 1993, my first job was to develop an IT contract staffing business to complement the agency's existing direct IT placement business. Over the next 3 years, I was able to build a substantial business, and saw the advantages of the contract side of the business. The ongoing, growing revenue stream was the best part.

By 1996, my comp plan was "changed" by the agency owners, (not in my favor). This change pushed me to consider starting my own firm to… Continue

Your Achilles Heels or, Don't Go Near The Water! There's a Very Scary Frog In There...

Everybody has their weakness, that one irrational fear that triggers an uncontrollable-squeal-like-a-little-girl reaction in you. Do you know what I’m talking about? There’s no explaining this fear; it’s primal and undeniable. For some people this fear is manifested in spiders, or snakes, or even squirrels. Mine is frogs.

I’ve always hated frogs, ever since I was a little girl. Strangely and perversely enough, one of my dad’s more “interesting” hobbies was frog jumping. My dad would… Continue

The Recruiting Animal Show

In either the smartest or dumbest move I've made this week, I have accepted an invite to be on The Recruiting Animal show on Wednesday, June 18th.

Although I am just getting into the 12 Rules here I hope to be able to give an overview on them at some point on the show.

I'm sure the Animal will hammer me about something - so for those of you not used to hearing me stammer, you might want to tune in LOL!

All in all, I think it will be a blast. Can't lose when it's… Continue

The Best Father's Day Ever...oh really?!

I'm not sure who came up with this idea of "Father's Day," but since I'm the proud Father of Five, I obviously think it's a brilliant idea.

And, yes, I was treated like a King yesterday. Much thanks to the beautiful Kat for reminding me that being a Father is worth the investment of my time.

We ended the day by loading up the Suburban and hauling the family out to a movie (Kung Fu… Continue

Zen Stories -


There were two priests travelling together. One was old and the other young. On the way, they came across a shallow river. A young ravishingly beautiful lady was sitting by the side, waiting for help to cross the river. The old priest without hesitation lifted her up in his arms and carried her over the river. Seeing this, the young priest was much agitated. Once on the other side, he rebuked the elder, questioning his morals, values, etc. This went on frequently, every… Continue
