he took it on the road and I am sure we will see a third example in the
next 12 months.

We hear about all of these social networking tools online. I think each tool out there has its own pros and cons, but like a database it is only as good as the effort you put in to utilize it. I recently did a quick audit on my contacts in LinkedIn and realize that 95% of my contacts are in the staffing industry. Now that is good to one degree, but also showed that my network lacked diversity. However one of my colleagues who is a recruiter has nothing but SAP candidates as her contacts,… Continue

On defining quality employees...
"Most organizations do not have any definition of a "quality employee," nor do they even have a performance management system that is anything better than a popularity contest….suffice it to say that before any performance can be assessed, the organization has to have a clear idea of what good or exceptional performance looks like. It needs to have longitudinal studies of its best performers so that a pattern of actions,… Continue

We just added a new tool to AIMS eStaffer.
We added a Web Based Time card system for contracotrs.
My question is, as a staffing company, how often do you customers ask you to provide a way to collect time card for the contractors you place at there company and if they want you to collect the time cards, does the customer
want a papar copy of the card or would an online version that is printable be enough?
Our system now allows each contractor to log on and submit a time… Continue

NEW YORK — A man in Brooklyn has been frightening women by appearing nude or scantily clad near their apartment windows. He is still on the loose and has flashed at least two women since May, according to police authorities.
The man usually comes out between midnight and 2 a.m. in the area around Ave. C and East 4th Street in Brooklyn.
One victim said she saw the man a couple months ago. “I looked toward the windows and… Continue

I'm here (this website?) to discuss the comings and goings of an INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIST in the wide world of online human resources. In the coming weeks I'd like to tell you what we see from the dark side of the moon (so to speak). We dweebs are incredibly insecure, we don't like to be chastised, and it's clear to all that we are infinitely smarter than everyone else.

This is almost as scary as speaking in public. When you need to change jobs, whether it’s your idea or your company’s, two major fears start. The fear of the unknown and the fear of failure. To help overcome these and problems associated with a job search go to someone who can assist you in the search. Find someone who specializes in your job category and someone who you feel you can trust. How do you know if you can… Continue

I come from an agency background. You the know the environment, caffeine fueled, telephone smile and dialing, 100 mph buzz factory. I now work in a corporarate setting. Where things like politics, policy, compliancy, and corporate red tape now play into my recruiting efforts.Anyone else notice a difference in the transition?
