Employee attitudes always change and evolve, but typically it lines up with the direction of upper management or as specific managers and/or co-workers come and go. However I had a unique (if not bizarre) view into the IT marketplace thanks to a friend of mine recently.
At lunch last week he had just announced his imminent departure from his fortune 500 employer as they were going through some “downsizing”. As everyone began to pass along their sympathies he said (and I quote) “I’m… Continue

“To be honest, my face is in no book, I have no space, I’m neither linked in, nor linked out. I just don’t have any interest in social networking. But this person will be making a decision as to whether or not my resume should be forwarded to a hiring manager. Help!!”
I'm always wondering how many recruiters speak to their employees and candidates about job search. Pretty sure if they did, these recruiters might just change some of their policies, processes, and… Continue

I left work today with some deep thoughts about my life and all that occurred this past year, September 11 is a wonderful time to think. In my last blog post I wrote about West Valley College and the Memorial Garden where I planned to go today dedicated to those who died on September 11, again two of West Valley College's alumni Mark Bingham, and Nicole Miller both had connections there. I went there this evening after some inward soul searching. Work was especially inspiring today, as I spoke… Continue

As you may already know, the unemployment rate jumped to 6.1% last month. Making it the highest unemployment rate since September 2003 and we continued to shed 84,000 more jobs in August.
Looking back, payrolls are down by 605,000 since November 2007. We have experienced the eighth month in row of consecutive declines. Since March of 2007, over 2 million people have become jobless.
In addition, the unemployment rate increased among new college grads. Their jobless rate… Continue

Google is the antithesis of branding. If Coca-Cola were breaking into today's soda market and plopped white unmarked cans on the grocery shelf that were labeled "Hypothesis" without benefit of any descriptors, pre-launch advertising or "buzz", they would fail miserably.
Your personal experiences while walking the aisles of your local grocery store is identical to an active job search. You have made a conscious decision to go to the store/find a job. You have an idea of what it is you… Continue

Well, It is about 12 midnight in CA which means it is now September 11, 2008. It is truly hard to believe it has been 7 years. I remember where I was that fatefull day 7 years ago, getting ready to go to a Statistics Class, at West Valley College, Saratoga, CA. I arrived at school that morning after hearing dreamily that the World Trade Center had been attacked and that the Pentagon had also been attacked and our teacher went ahead with our Midterm Exam, I got a C, but it didn't matter. I woke… Continue

[If you've ever read my blog over on ERE, you know I write a piece for 9/11; why should it be any different on RBC?]
For the past 6 years, 9/11 began the same way for me: Wake at 5 AM, shower and decide which Jones Beach Lifeguard cap I’m going to place at the firefighter memorial sitting outside the Squad 1 firehouse in Park Slope.
This particular memorial was never caught up in a same pool of bureaucratic quicksand that has hampered nearly every 9/11 memorial; it… Continue
