Love my ATS!!!

Anyone here using CATS?

I just friggin' love CATS. Asim, Andrew and Sae do a kickass job with their product.

Not to mention they're all smart enough to know that just cause they're brilliant, it doesn't mean they have every idea. CATS set up as a means of opening up the flow of ideas. As a result I have had literally the best experience with this company, from their… Continue

The Thumper Principle morphed into The Gambler edict

"If you can't say somfin nice... don't say nufin at all"

Phew, what a week... I had to really battle hard to ensure I kept the "Thumper Principle" in check. I really do prefer to live by this... I rarely react well emotionally, and tend to go over the top and embarrass myself when hindsight kicks in.

That said, I have this week so far self censored out 2 blog posts, 5 forum responses and 9 emails. By… Continue

Furloughs Only Work in the Military

The global economy has gotten so bad that Japan and some countries in Europe have tried to save jobs by implementing "work-sharing" programs. Here in the U.S., employers are equally concerned with keeping employees on staff, while still cutting costs. Their response is to implement furloughs. Furloughs are unpaid days off and Dr. John Sullivan, in his article for ERE, Employee Furloughs Can Be a Bad… Continue

The Client Side - Aging Baby Boomers and the War For Talent

Last week I wrote about our industry and the post bubble world and the responses were fantastic and all really helpful from my perspective. Some of the discussion touched on the aging Baby Boomers and the upcoming War For Talent. The thought on the War For Talent of course is that as the Boomers retire there will be fewer workers to fill their slots creating excellent conditions for recruiters and our industry. I buy that argument. The Baby Boom generation has been a powerful force and has had… Continue

The Best Linkedin Invites Ever Written - For Recruiters

I was on the sofa picking my nose and watching MTV, when my Dad shouts, “Get a job!” I reminded Pops that I needed a car to get to a job. He reminded me (again) of my dusty moped. Again, I pleaded how hard it was to maintain a studly image riding a Moped.

“Get a job or find another home!” He ordered.

16 years of building my image – A collection of the finest samples of cologne, Polo collar turned up and advanced technology in Acne medication – all for naught.

It… Continue

Bert and Ernie go to the unemployment line

You know it's bad when our beloved Sesame Street stalwarts are tossed out to the streets. Yes, Bert and Ernie have been given their pink slips.

When icons are impacted, it is no longer an issue of whether one political party is wrong or right.

Chasing a Chinaman Through New Jersey (revisited)

I wrote this blog on my personal myspace page last summer. At the time the company I was working for was going downhill rapidly and I had only been there for a year. I read Claudia's Discussion about the meaning of success and it made me think how far I've come and what a journey it has been. I think one of my strengths as a Recruiter has been being able to identify with my candidates. I've been job hunting more than I care to think about in my life and it's always fresh in my mind how scary… Continue
